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.

Let's start with the positive, staff were friendly and my husband loved his Singapore noodles.... sadly from here it's down hill, the rest of the food was average and so much onion in the dishes especially the Satay half the plate was onion and satay was very bland. 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.

Beware! Restaurant is packed from Chinese tour groups not because food is good. The food is worse than Dollar Chinese food. Service was extremely rude. First I went to change plate because the plate is full of lobster scrape. I personally bring the plate to waitress because there is zero service in the restaurant. The waitress is unhappy that she...
