Food is served fairly quickly when the restaurant is busy serving a group of tourists. The beef on hot plate is ok but the seafood hot pot is disappointing. It deserved a 3 star rating but 2 stars was penalised due to a dead fly in my Chinese tea.

We were here for the World Superbikes and wanted to grab some quick takeaway. Even though there was a lot of people around our wait was only about 25 mins, so we had a look around the main st. Food was tasty prices were what you normally would expect to pay.

A traditional Chinese restaurant. The service is good as is the food. Staff are most attentive. Appears to be family owned and operated. Table service. Parking in street can present a challenge at certain times.

If you want a sit down meal then I can't comment. But this place is right on the beach with a bottle shop 30m. I got a take away fried rice and a six pack and ate down there it was amazing.

Fried ice cream was disappointing too no nice crumb batter it was... More

I dragged the family here as I love Chinese food but the rest of the family aren't fans. Based on this restaurant my family will probably never do Chinese again! Service was pretty bad. Atmosphere was worse but not sure which topped out, the massive influx of tourist groups taking over restaurant or the waiter seated at the wall near... More

When we are visiting Cowes we often have a meal at Wing Lock. Generous servings of reasonable quality are supported by friendly service at a good value price. Okay, Wing Lock might not offer the best Chinese food going around but we have always enjoyed our meals there and it seems to provide good value for money.
