What an incredible meal . From cocktails,appetizers, soup to entree each corse was better than the last. I have had Asian food coast to coast and in Europe this place blows them all out of the water. The Serrano infused Margarita that started it off. Had just the kick to get my dining experience going then the three corse meal... More

We returned here after our great experience last year. We tried several varieties of chicken. The cashew chicken was definitely my favourite. My girlfriend prefers the Singapore chicken. They're both delicious. Is very hard to go wrong with the menu here, though I'm not sure I have the stomach for tongue.

Nice restaurant to sit in. Efficient professional service. They accommodate vegans easily. Their broccoli and tofu stir-fry with mushrooms and roasted cashews was really yummy. Not too salty, not oily, just warm comforting food. We also had the thai green curry stir-fry and it was good as well. We're not big tofu eaters so we asked if we could skip... More

One can't go to Puerto Vallarta without one or more meals at Archie's Wok. Service is best by far...when someone asks me where was my favorite place in PV I ate, I always say Archie's Wok.

A welcome break from Mexican meals this restaurant is a goodie. We had the Cambodian beef, the mahi mahi catch of the day and rice with shrimp. The portions were more than ample and our choices were delicious. Perhaps consider sharing entrees. Highly recommended.

We enjoyed this restaurant which offers a different type of cuisine in Puerto Vallarta. I may enjoy mexican food but, sometimes you want to eat something else. Archie's Wok provides that! An interesting accessible asiatic menu at a fair price. This restaurant is already well rated on Trip Advisor; I am just adding my vote to recommend it.

Archie's Wok is an institution in Puerto Vallarta, and never fails to impress. I have returned repeatedly during visits to PV over many years, and always look forward to the experience. The food is delicious and unique, and the balance of spices just right. I particularly enjoy the melt-in-the-mouth Chiang Mai fish with coconut and chilli sauce and the chicken... More

The restaurant is small, so I understand why sometimes there is a que. But the food is really great!! I would turn here every week if I lived in the area. Had the Cashew chicken, Chicken Fried Rice and another dish I never heard of and cannot remember the name of. We shared at our table, and all were delicious.... 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.
