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.

Two of us ate at Archie's Wok tonight. They do not take reservations but we were able to be seated quickly. Nice. They were offering a free appetizer if we paid in cash so of course we couldn't pass that up. For main courses my friend got Mahi Mahi and I got Cashew Chicken. Both of our dishes were excellent. I have eaten at this restaurant three times and quality and service never fails. We were so excited to eat there because we remember the last time we visited. It's that good! Great ambiance too with twinkling lights in the tree situated in the middle of the roof just off the entrance of the second room. It's just perfect. Perfect for couples, friends, and families.

Our latest visit to Archie's Wok was another reminder of why this is one of my favorite restaurants anywhere in the world. The food (Thai) is delicious and perfectly prepared, the staff is warm and attentive without being intrusive, the dining rooms are very attractive, and the ambience is tranquil. We had an exceptionally satisfying dining experience during our most recent visit. Some favorites: a wonderful Asian slaw; Chang Mai fish (with coconut milk, lemongrass, and a lovely array of vegetables) with brown rice; awesome lime cheese pie. A GREAT value.
