Without a reservation be prepared to wait. Very good, fresh food in a nice setting in the heart of the romantic zone. Nice option to the many Italian options in the area.

It's a wonderful meal and great place to go for best asian food in P.V. (even if they don't take reservations) but leave your name when you arrive, have a drink outside on that public patio or go for a short walk to The Pier,...More

Food was very good but for me it is about the whole experience. Surly and churlish waiter. Why would a successful restaurant keep such a server?

Why would you eat chinese food in Mexico. Because it is great here. The margaritas are also very good. Our picky eater found something to eat here too.

No. There's simply no way for Mexicans to address celiac disease that affects only 1% of the population, especially when most gluten-free alternatives are significantly more expensive than their conventional counterparts.

Description
Archie's Wok is widely recognized as Puerto Vallarta's best Asian fusion restaurant, featuring authentic, freshly prepared cuisine that spans the Pacific Rim from Thailand to the Philippines, to China and Vietnam. The staff offers traditional and contemporary dishes from these distinctive regions. They daily prepare a palette of complex sauces and condiments. Savor the aromas of spicy chili sambals, curry pastes, their famous hoisin sauce for the ribs and chiang mai sauce, too. The menu is truly a cuisine of medleys, which combines Pacific Island foods, Asian cooking techniques, Mexico's fresh ingredients and a host of other cultural and culinary influences. Seafood is caught daily in Banderas Bay and delivered fresh to the restaurant. Locally grown ingredients include an array of vegetables, herbs and spices, including kaffir lime, galangal, lemon grass, ginger, chilies, tamarind, and coconut milk. These are native to both Asia and the Mexican Coast. Archie's Wok has been family owned and operated since 1986. The history starts in 1977 when Archie Alpenia began working as the famous Hollywood Director John Huston's private chef at his personal retreat in Banderas Bay. From then on the restaurant continues to be run by his wife Cindy, daughter Kyoki and son Sergio. His legacy continues in this comfortable restaurant. Archie's Wok is just steps away from the Los Muertos Beach Pier and is a great location to meet friends and family. The restaurant is casually elegant and their team is committed to great service, excellent food and a comfortable setting. You can enjoy lunch and dinner in this sublime atmosphere with dining room and Asian style garden.
