Mama Wok - Chinese Restaurant - Cary


A friend of ours informed us that the owners had to sell and will now be re-opening as a
Thai/Japanese/Sushi. We will continue the search for another worthy Chinese restaurant to recommend but as we have noted previously, the choices are slim to none around here and Mama Wok was the best to date.

Mama Wok is one of the few sit down Chinese restaurants in the Triangle area that is remotely reminiscent of the ones I went to in MD/DC. They have a good selection of vegetarian menu items and a "secret Chinese menu" that you have to ask for with more traditional Chinese items on it. Both menus are excellent.

"Mama" or the lady usually at the counter, knows what vegetarian really means and if you ask her what on the menu is vegetarian she can tell you. The tofu vegetable soup is not made with chicken broth as it usually is. This is one of the only places I've found that has vegetable dumplings. A must for me if I'm eating Chinese.

Favorite menu items include: Egglplant with Basil, Yellowbird, Braised Tofu

Mama Wok is located off of High House Road and Cary Parkway in the Preston area. They don't have a website but CitySearch does have them listed:
