What a cold looking place. Reception is pathetic, as is the menue in a school plastic folder with pictures which are not clear. In the restaurant there is like another room, where very loud speaking Chinese sat and drank....or mayby they did other things. .....and they had no change for guests paying cash.

We went across the street form our hotel for some take-out meals. Besides the exorbitant prices charged, the meals were drenched in sauce which made everything soggy. The meal I ate, sweet and sour chicken, was bland and lacked a texture. The chicken seemed to be floating in the excess sweet and sour sauce. Very disappointing.

If you keen to experience genuinely cooked Chinese food in Swakopmund, this is the right place. Fairly priced and large portions. Soups are must.

Was pleasantly surprised to find a second restaurant at Windhoek Country Club as the normal buffet dinners were getting a tad tedious so dined here earlier this week. So disappointing - service pretty shoddy - the waitresses walk about with headphones in their ears listening to music; a few bowls chipped; only boxed white wine available by the glass. I... More

We celebrated my birthday at Chez Wou and ordered several dishes to share. The food is tasty, but a little overpriced for the portion size and quality of what you get. Living in Cape Town, one would expect a little bit more for the price you pay.

The Hot and Sour Soup served here is fantastic. We know what we want and never miss out on the chicken with cashew nuts, sweet and sour pork and beef with black pepper. We have, on occasion, tried something completely new - sometimes it works for us and sometimes not. Their prawn dishes are also worth ordering.

We are locals and haven't been to Chez Wou in a while. Went there tonight for dinner and what a pleasant surprise. Food was devine! Had starters and mains. Portion size was good and flavours great and worth every penny. Definitely going back this weekend.

I was excited to eat in a Chinese restaurant in a seafood town, as products are fresh, But the service was horrible, my family and I were the only ones in the restaurant (we were 6) but our food took an hour and a half to arrive. So when the food finally arrived, it turns out it's not what it... More
