Traveling back to the Northeast from South Carolina, we had to stop and have dinner here... Nothing in the Hilton Head area can match the flavors and the service. I love their crab rangoons, and the General Tso's chicken and the fried rice. If you are in the area, and love Chinese food, do stop and have dinner here.

We ordered take out on NYE. Even though it was packed and they had orders stacked up (there must have been 40+ orders) it was definitely above average! The fried rice had lots of egg in it as well as veggies like peas and carrots (no, I don't think that made it healthy but it made it more interesting!). The crab rangoons and chicken fingers were def above average too - even my husband who is a crab rangy perfectionist said so. We also got chicken lo mein which may have been the only complaint. It was tasty with lots of chicken just not enough saucy stuff. However it wasn't greasy. And they really packed it in there. After one meal for the 2 of us it didn't even look like there was anything missing.

Another thing that was odd was the chicken in spicy garlic sauce. It actually was very tasty (and came with white rice which is a nice touch) but it's only drawback was that everything in the dish was the same shape - matchstick (or julienne). All of the veggies and also the chicken were all long rectangles! It was just kind of off putting. You'd have to see it to understand that I'm not being a picky moron. It just wasn't aesthetically pleasing.

If I was in the beach area on NYE again (which probably won't happen! We are simply staying here until we close on our new house at the end of the month) we'd order from Ocean Wok.

We were up at the ocean area last night and we were getting hungry. Just having seafood the night prior I said how about the ocean wok? We lived in seabrook for a hr and this was a favorite of ours. Hoping it was still great food we went. Definately no dissapointing us as the food is just as incredible as it was 5 yrs ago. The triple crown was a bit spicy as it should be with the flavors you expect. Beef chop suey was also excellent. The tidbit platter was good but those chicken wings were the biggest we have ever seen and the taste was out of this world. Food was served very hot as it should be. The waitstaff is always friendly and they dont rush you out as some places do. The drinks are very good but I think a little pricey as a scorpion for 2 was 14.95. Most places charge 11-12.95. All in all we still love this place and if it were closer to us in dracut, we would have a toss up as to where to dine for chinese, the new changhai or the ocean wok.

So glad we stopped in to eat for our 35th anniversary. Great food, great service and well kept place. We had the Peking Duck and a flaming dessert. Will go again when we return to Hampton Beach .

Don't miss Ocean Wok at the south end of Hampton Beach, N.H.. Chinese restaurants for me have been not much better than average, all with pretty much the same flavors and not one really standing out. However Ocean Wok is the exception and beats most other New England chinese restaurants by a mile. Fair prices, quality, consistency, good service, terrific flavors (varied for a change), and good service make this winner. Owners are always present and visible. Try the terrific "sizzling" platters.
