“Consistently Good and Always Fresh”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We love the delicious offerings at Ocean Wok at the end of the main part of Hampton Beach-so much so that I recently braved the Sunday beach traffic to retrieve a take-out order! It was well worth the hassle as the 15 of us gathered for Mother's Day managed to consume amazing quantities of this fresh, often surprising, food. Among our favorites are Three Treausures (with chicken, shrimp and scallops), steamed dumplings, and the house fried rice. Ample portions make this an affordable place to go with children, and the luncheon specials are a great value. Whether you eat in or take out, you cannot miss with this cut-above Chinese restaurant. Give it a try!

“Pleasant Surprise”
Reviewed 3 May 2014

We've passed this place a million times and never noticed it, but a local friend recommended it. It's small....about the size of a diner....with no fancy decor on the outside and limited parking. Inside there are nine booths and a few tables with a very small bar at one end - simple decor but very clean. We ordered several dishes so that everyone could try everything: pu pu platter, large peking duck, shrimp in lobster sauce, General Tso's chicken, pork fried rice. Overall, everything was superb! Each meal was served in a very generous portion, some artistically presented. Much was packed up to bring home and was further enjoyed the following day. Our waiter, 'Phil,' was top shelf all they way. Most Chinese restaurants provide Chinese tea at no charge, but here it was $1.25 for the pot. The meals, however, were very reasonably priced. There was one negative feature, unfortunately. The noise level was at a high decible. People at the bar were literally shouting at each other while having a good time. A table with five young kids yelling at each other were undisciplined. Even the hostess was talking very loudly, enough that we could hear every word much of the time. In such a small place, the sound waves were reverberating all over. By the end of the visit I actually had a headache. This was a weekday night, and hopefully not a typical one because we definitely plan to go back. Other than the noise level, this was an A+ dinner.

My wife and I have visited Ocean Wok on numerous occasions and have never been disappointed. Good food and good value. Parking can be problematic.

“Best Mai Tai and Friendly Atmosphere. GREAT FOOD too!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

This is our favorite restaurant. We live nearby and go about once per week. The food is always fresh, the owners welcome us when we walk in and they have a great reputation for the best Mai Tai anywhere. The staff is attentive, friendly and speedy.

“The only Chinese food I eat!”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

Fresh, without that after taste that you can't Colgate yourself clean no matter how hard you brush. The lettuce wraps are my favorites but the vegetable fried rice and lo mein are close seconds. The kids love the steamed dumplings and my husband the Lobster sauce on anything. Definitely a terrific alternative....
