The 44-year-old man was punched and kicked by a gang of four men and a woman in the Long Commons area of the Co Londonderry town on Tuesday at around 9pm.
He was in his kitchen with his wife and three-year-old daughter when they heard a commotion and the sound of breaking glass at the front of the property.
He went to investigate and upon confronting the gang, he was attacked.
Ruoyin Luo told UTV she found her husband John "holding his head and eyes and blood was running down everywhere."
"I kept screaming and screaming and tried to call the ambulance and police."
A neighbour, who came to the victim's aid with a wet towel, said he was "very shocked" that someone could be beaten "so viciously."
Ruoyin Luo said the ordeal has been "like a bad dream," before continuing: "I don't know if it was a racist attack or a random attack, but either way it's horrible, unimaginable."
Probably we will find a new house - that is the first step. Then we will see whether or not [we will] leave.
Her husband is being treated in hospital for concussion and face and head injuries.
David McClarty, Independent Unionist MLA for East Londonderry, said news of the attack left him feeling appalled.
"There's something sinister [about it] and hopefully police will get to the bottom of it."
He continued: "There's no place in society for such racist attacks and they have to be condemned by every right thinking person.
"It has to be condemned that any member of our community here in Coleraine should be attacked and certainly any member of our ethnic community.
"Chinese people are extremely well regarded in Coleraine - they're hard workers and they contribute so much to community life in Coleraine," he added.
Police would like anyone with information to get in touch.
