Coconut shrimp soup was delicious-server offered to split for the two of us. We then shared Thai Noodles with shrimp & peanuts and stir fried shrimp & vegetables. Delicious! We arrived early and were able to walk in, by the time we left there was a long line waiting for tables. Willing to wait says a lot about the quality... More

This place is great for couples or groups of friends and family. A fine dining Asian restaurant just off the beach from the pier. First time visiting, but will be a regular spot when in town. Great food and decent prices.

We always visit Archie's when we are in PV. The Asian fusion menu and great service brings us back yearly. Try the fish in banana leaves. No reservations, so plan accordingly. would recommend

This year seemed more crowded than many years past. We put our name in and were told 80 minutes. Came back in an hour and still had to wait 40 minutes outside. The food is very good especially the beef tips. We did have a group of 8 and the restaurant is very small so I cant be too upset.... More

Conveniently located very near the pier in PV. A very busy restaurant so be prepared for a long wait, especially if you have, a large party like we had. I had the Asian Slaw as an appetizer and it was delicious! I loved the j8cama, nango, walnuts, sesame, citrus and green herbs combo. A great way to start a good... More

this is a fun place with yummy asian-inspired foods. drinks and dishes that really stand out - passion fruit margarita (yum, yum), a poblano coconut soup (a must try), red cabbage salad with a sesame dressing (crisp and flavourful), tongue in peanut sauce (trust me), and the ribs! be prepared to wait since they do not take reservations, but there...

I have eaten at Archie's Wok quite a few times and it is my favourite restaurant in this price range. The fried rice is outstanding and the curry is my usual go to as it can't be beat. Portions are generous enough to share and the menu offers a wide variety of dishes with very fresh ingredients. We usually go... More

After reading so many good reviews, Archie's Wok was number 1 on my to dine list. Everything about the place was excellent. The variety of flavours offered was only surpassed by the variety of dishes. The meals arrived expediently and piping hot. As with all good PV restaurants. the service was top notch and the atmosphere equally superb. They do... More

The chef must be resting on his laurels this week. On our third annual visit to this popular spot we order a variety of Thai and wok dishes. Honestly, we wanted to like the food but it was no more than standard Chinese take-out quality at twice the price. The stir fry was bland and uninteresting, the chicken almost absent.... More

Food is very good. This place is a reliable staple. I wish they took reservations, we waited 90 minutes for a table. We might have to take them off of our list during high season. The staff is very accommodating.

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.
