We visited Mama Kwan's for a weekday lunch and were very pleased with everything. We were sat immeadiately and the service was great. I had the ahi sandwich which was prepared perfectly in my opinion. If I visit Kill Devil Hills again, I will be back!

We have been coming to nags head for years and found great spot just 2 years ago. Now we stop by every time we come to the outer banks. Would highly recommend the fish tacos. Staff is friendly and always get you seated quickly.

My wife and i wanted to eat something different and this was a great place to go The roasted red pepper soup was to die for. Our entrees were both yummy. The biggest surprise was the fried green beans. What a treat. The pasta sauce was different but made you want more. In addition to the excellent food, our waitress... More

This was my families first trip to the OBX and we had been told by some friends who are locals that we couldn't miss Mama Kwan's. They were so right!

I have been going to OBX for a long time but just discovered this little place when a friend recommended it. The only items that I have eaten there are the the fish tacos.

Get the Pad Thai if you like spicy! Pork plate if you like smoky sweet! Garbage plate if you're a vegan. Fun atmosphere! Usually a wait in-season, but another must try while you're in OBX!
