mandu restaurant | traditional korean cuisine

    Mandu opened in the fall of 2006 by Chef Yesoon Lee and her two children, Jean and Danny. Located on 18th street in Dupont, Chef Lee and Danny preside over the kitchen making sure that the recipes and dishes taste as Chef Lee was originally taught being raised in Seoul. Their specialty is in cooking homestyle Korean dishes that one would remember from their childhood while also crafting new dishes using the fundamentals of Korean cuisine that they can call their own. The family created a unique Korean dining experience with a full bar offering specialty cocktails and a carefully selected wine list.

    In January 2011, Mandu expanded to another location at the City Vista building in the Mount Vernon Triangle neighborhood.
