My husband and my in-laws and I loved it! We got fish tacos which are amazing, my father in-law was looking for a good burger and he said he got a great one! The staff was friendly! Will be going back next year!

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! Our family LOVED it and will make sure that every trip back involves Mama Kwans. I had the famous Fish Taco's and I understand now why they are famous. Fresh... More

We stopped in for lunch this week. We had to wait about 10-15 minutes for a table, but we sat at the bar with bloody Marys and checked out the decor. Our server, Danielle, recommended the chicken breast sandwich with pineapple. It was a big hit with my husband! I got their highly rated fish tacos. They were very good... More

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. It is their signature item and I can't seem to order anything else. They have a sautéed version and a blackened version. The first is good... More

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!

I very much enjoyed Mama Kwan's. It is one of the few places that can lure me out of the beach house to go eat. Great atmosphere, very good food and I highly recommend the mango margarita! They are busy but you can relax at the bar while you wait. The service is friendly and fast. The crab cake sandwich... More

We love Mama Kwan's Grill and Tiki Bar! The food is amazing and the service is very good. It is always busy and you may have to wait for a table, but it is so worth it! Even at their busiest, you get your food quickly.

Our favorite restaurant and a never miss when in the OBX. Fresh, unique, super service and a must. We have eaten at Mama Kwan's for many years and a hundred times and always make sure we take friend and family. Whether you're vegetarian, want a fabulous burger or a wrap, you won't be disappointed. This is our go-to dining, lunch... More
