We have been going to Puerto Vallarta for a number of years. This year was the first time to eat at Archie's Wok. We have know about it for a while but never seemed to go there before. There is usually a line up but with so many choices in PV we didn't see the point in waiting in line.... More

I have been meaning to go to Archie's Wok since I have been here and it did not disappoint. From the lovely hostess in the beautiful red linen dress to the wonderful ambiance to the excellent food choices, we were blown away. I would highly recommend this place as a "MUST" on your stay in PV.

Not only is PV a paradise reborn but it offers fabulous dining choices. Archie's Wok meets my Asian dining experiences from N.Y., Chicago, Santa Fe, to San Francisco. From the most perfect calamari to a the stir fry options with wonderfully balanced seasonings. The atmosphere is relaxing and service is impeccable. Number one for us in our PV visits.

We’ve been coming to Archie’s Wok for more than a decade and have always loved it, but the great thing is that it has stayed consistently good over the years. They don’t take reservations but it’s worth standing in line or getting there early for the best Asian food in Puerto Vallarta. Archie’s Wok is not traditional Asian, it’s sort... More

I will admit I haven't been here in years and I was glad to see that the quality has not changed. We had the calamari,spring rolls and cucumber salad for starters.All were excellent. The calamari was very fresh and tasty as were the spring rolls-very fresh. The cucumber salad was a pleasant surprise with a very tasty dressing. I had... More

We were told this is the place to eat when you're tired of Mexican food, and it was indeed. Our fish wrapped in banana leaves was exquisite. John Huston was a lucky man to have had Archie as his chef way back when, and we are now just as lucky to have his family continuing to make us these awesome... More

We have been making Archie's Wok one of our regular stops while in Vallarta for more years than we care to admit. Unlike many other restaurants that grow tired and lose their enthusiasm, Archie's has maintained its high food and service standards. The team of professionals that make up the staff has everything to do with it. They just "get... More

If you've had your fill of burritos and tacos, try Archie's Wok. Husband and I ate there twice when we were in Puerto Vallarta last week. I knew it would be good because the place was packed with people waiting outside for a table. The service was impressive with Ezekiel, our uniformed waiter keeping an eye on us. And if... More

Consistently good and fairly priced. You wouldn't think that Mexico would offer one of my favorite Asian food restaurants but Archie's Wok is a must visit when I travel to Puerto Vallarta.

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.
