The restaurant atmosphere was non existent. More like a bar. The food was ok but a bit pricey. Not on my priority list to go back.

Dec 27, 2014 Dinner here on a Saturday evening. Lots of customers, even though it was 2 days after Christmas. Cuisine is a spin on Asian with dishes of seafood, pork and other meats, as well as vegetarian choices. Pleasant casual décor. All three of us enjoyed our widely differing meals. Prices were moderate, typical of most eat-in restaurants on... More

A friend has always proclaimed Mama Kwan's to be her favorite place to eat in OBX. I had never been until last weekend. They were pretty crowded (off season, limited choices) but the service was very good. Our waitress was quick with our drinks, someone came and refilled when needed. Food was good - I had the Famous Fish Tacos... More

We love this place but it gets busy, so we have started getting takeout on new years eve every year. Our favorite thing to order is the Hawaaian pork which is so delicious and I would highly recommend it as well as the thai money bags. The garbage plate is also very good. If you want to dine in get... More

The food here is pedestrian at best. The tuna sandwich I ordered was good overall but should have been better. The tuna was grilled to a nice medium rare and served with a good wasabi sauce, but it was on a large roll with a large slice of tomato and lettuce. A nice piece of tuna deserves better. The fries...

Well run, consistently very good. Clean, great service, great food and decent atmosphere. Love the pork plate and the seafood specials are always very good. If you can't get a table, try the Bonzer Shack located a couple blocks north on the beach road since it is same ownership and offers another variation of the theme with the same attention... More

Mama Kwan's has an Asian flair but has many items that are totally what you would expect in the Carolinas. They have some seafood. They have some burgers and sandwiches. They have a great kids menu for kids 10 and under. I point this out because our 13 year old had trouble finding something plain enough on the adult menu.... More
