Had tickets to a 8pm show at the South Coast Repertory on Saturday night so decided to make 6pm dinner reservations at AnQi. We were about 15 minutes late because of the heavy traffic in the South Coast Plaza parking areas and we did not realize that AnQi is adjoining Bloomingdales- called when lost. However, we were seated upon arrival... More

My friend knew about the Tuesday off menu, roasted Crab which must be ordered in advance. Four of us went last night to partake and were not disappointed. We started with crisp glasses of sparkling wine and some garlic noodles (very addictive). Then the crabs came in huge bowls. The sauce was excellent and flavored the crab wonderfully. The bowl...

When I am shopping at South Coast Plaza (or am just in the area) and have a taste for Asian food, An Qi is where I go. We generally go for lunch (or a late lunch / early dinner) on the weekend, but once we did end up there for dinner later in the evening. The decor has an "asian... More

Came here for lunch on a saturday afternoon. Beautiful place dominated with black, dark wood and a touch of red. We ordered half lobster with garlic noodles set, drunken beef and crispy beef rolls. The lobster and garlic noodles was excellent, drunken beef was good. Overall, a satisfying meal.

There my not be a better fusion Asian restaurant in Costa Mesa/Santa Ana area. Potstickers being one of my favorite appetizers. However it is extremely loud so not the ideal first date restaurant. And the service has at times been so bad that my wife and I actually got up and left after no one acknowledged us after being sat... More

You know you've hit gold when you're trying to find fault with a restaurant and you just cannot! 1) SERVICE Impeccable. They seat you right away even if you're just a walk-in. As you enter the premises, everyone else acknowledges you with a small nod. There is practically no wait time between the time you sit and the time someone... More

Albeit on the pricier side but delicious. Great service. Located in Bloomingdales but by no means is a mall restaurant. Sexy vibe. Tapas type Asian cuisine. Wonderful wines. Great to share and interesting combinations. Would return

This is an OC outpost of Crustacean where we have enjoyed meals previously. It was not nearly as good, pot stickers were cold, sashimi was fine but very thin slices, salmon toasts OK, sliders pedestrian, turmeric scented sole was not fresh. Garlic rice and the kim chi rice were both good. Ambience was nice, staff pleasant but with little knowledge... More
