Exquisite!

AnQi holds the well-deserved title of one of the most beautiful restaurants in Orange County. Aside from its exquisite beauty, the food is also exquisite--presentation and taste. Our server, Geneviev, was outstanding! Our visit could not have been more perfect! I will go back again and again.

Although in the South Coast Plaza, clearly not a mall restaurant. The furnishings, decor and ambience are high class and fancy - something that may account for the relatively high menu prices, given the quality of the menu items. The fried lobster dumplings appetizer did not have that much lobster and were disappointing. The famous garlic noodles were quite good... More

Food was okay. For the price you pay, it's a little expensive. But the Ambiance is nice! Service- a little slow. It took a while for the food to come to the table even though they were just Dimsums. We had to wait too long for our check after we asked for it.

This is a really great place once you get over the fact it is in a mall. Killer ambience inside, great cocktails, great happy hour and overall excellent food! Must order their shaking beef melts in your mouth!

Went to AnQi today for the first time to try their signature dish of garlic noodles. The recipe is apparently so secret that only two people in the restaurant are allowed into a "secret kitchen" to prepare the dish. Given the hype around the dish I actually ended up disappointed. The noodles were good but the flavor was very light... More

Sat at the bar for lunch and wonderful Vietnamese pho! One of the best! No MSG or Bi products. Excellent lunch indeed! I will be back soon!

Nicely set up restaurant and the food is solid and the variety is good but the wait staff is extremely mediocre and that never seems to change. Also the management seems to have a "better than you" attitude and overall they could be friendlier and make the entire dining experience more enjoyable....

This is a rendy place if you have pleanty of time you may want to wait to be part of the ambience. The food was nothing special, but it was specially priced.

Walked in without a reservation on a Monday night. Ten minute wait. Went to the bar and had the worst magarita i have ever had. Small volume, too much ice and $15 each. After 20 minutes asked where was my table. No table. Left. Shame because the last time the food was good if overpriced.

The restaurant is located in southern most part of South Coast Plaza on second floor. Valet parking is available near the entrance. Self parking is also available since this restaurant is located in South Coast Plaza. When you eat at Anqi, expect prices to be high. (I was pleasantly surprised that there was no charge for the birthday dessert.) With... More
