At MOA, we aim to serve guests with the highest quality, raw meats, including dry-aged beef options, while also providing an upscale, full service where our servers will handle all of the grilling in order to get the most enjoyment out of your barbecuing.

Reservations: We are excited to serve the Uptown Charlotte area, and can not wait for everyone to visit us! That being said, we are operating with safety for our guests, and staff, in mind during this pandemic. We kindly ask for understanding that reservation times may vary slightly, due to our seating limitations to social distance. We thank you for your understanding during this time!

UPDATE: Per Governor Coopers Executive Order, as it pertains to restaurants, the new rule also requires customers at restaurants to wear masks — even while seated at a table — unless they are actively drinking or eating. Please keep this in mind when planning to dine with us.

    Our waiter is amazing so is the food and the atmosphere. It just that I feel like the girl who checked us in was kinda rude. I wanted to make sure of our appointment and and when we will be seated so I asked her question. Because when she told us, my sister and her friend was upfront, I was behind them and couldn’t hear what she said. So I asked her to repeat but she did it rudely.

    Great service - server was very knowledgeable about the menu. Portions were large, food was tasty; spicy pork was perfectly spicy. I had the ramen, only disappointment was that the egg I added on was hard boiled, not a yummy gooey egg. Would definitely go back and try other menu items.

    My husband took me to MOA for my birthday . We enjoyed the Korean fried wings, salmon with calamari and fried tofu. The sides were so fresh and plentiful. You get so much food for what you spend. We will be back for sure.

    My husband and I celebrated our anniversary here and had Heather as our server. It was an extremely pleasant dining experience. Heather was so wonderful. She made our time there the best it could have been. I would highly recommend trying MOA at least once. It was fun, interactive, and delicious! This is somewhere we will be glad to eat again. I will have to request Heather the next time we dine with MOA. I can't imagine anyone being more helpful and patient. She was so well versed on the menu and Korean food, she made our afternoon that much better! Looking forward to going again!

    Awful table placement. In the back next to a closet that was frequently accessed. Also table was not balanced. One side has much less room and was cramped for 2 people

    The ambiance, service and food were great! Well presented, cooked and priced. The dessert was ok but who goes to a Korean BBQ for sweets right? The banchan (sides) were good and the cold ones are unlimited refills. The only downside is (as with every other restaurant in downtown CLT) that parking is scarce and garages are expensive. I wish they validated.

    I surprised my husband with a dinner here for our second wedding anniversary. The server (Ashley) was awesome! The whole experience was awesome! Being able to cook at the table and share so much delicious food. We sat outside on a nice 75 degrees evening and the noise wasn’t bad at all for a Saturday night in downtown Charlotte. I would recommend all Korean food lovers to try this out at least once!!

    Was so excited to take friends who had never experienced Korean bbq! Rude from the minute we stepped in from the hostess to our waitress! Food subpar and tasteless! As empty as this place was you would think we were putting them out! Kimchi was tasteless… scallops were mushy! Just mugwort not moa!

    Ordered Premium # 2 Kobe Beef and Seafood. Waitress cooked at our table, however the meat was not hot. My 3 guess and I like our meat sizzling when served. We spent with appetizers drinks and a generous tip $411.00. If the meat was served sizzling, I would’ve given this restaurant a higher score.

    I’ve been able to experience Korean BBQ in a few different places and this was ok in comparison. One of my favorite parts of Korean BBQ the ability to prepare my own foods with those I am dining with. This experience was extremely guided which restricted our ability to really enjoy that hands on dining. The drinks were amazing, our server was so friendly and as attentive as she could be (even though she was taking care of us and another very large party), and we enjoyed our date night. If there’s a next time, I would just order a dish rather than the grilling experience.

    Great food. Great experience. It was a little pricey for us so this is definitely a special occasion type of place and not every day for us. Totally recommend if you have never been to a Korean bbq place where its cooked at the table before.
