Our food was disgusting. Everything my husband and I ordered tasted like chemicals or soap. I do not eat a lot of Asian food, but this is very different than anything I have had.

The inside is nice, try to get a table in the back. The pancit we had was excellent, I had mine with shrimp and they were plump to bursting, full of flavour. We had mojitos to drink and they were very good as well. The service was excellent and the food arrived in no time at all.

This is one of the best examples of Asian good to be found. The breading and sauces are very light and the flavour is very full. I plan to return here before leaving PV.

Archie's Wok may have a line out front when you arrive there, but it is well worth the wait! It is tastefully decorated inside, and the waiters are very attentive. I ordered the Pancit, since I have great memories of the dish from my time on Guam, and I was not disappointed. I started with the Asian Slaw, and it... More

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.
