No longer in business. No plans to reopen elsewhere. Just filling in the required characters. For good Thai try Pacific Thai in Pacific Grove or one of the Monterey Thai restaurants.

A must stop when you're in the monterey bay area. Food is great and the owners welcome everyone. Christine the owner, has a memory that does not fail and remembers how you like your food and which items you don't care for.....wish we lived closer. So pay them a visit and you will make it a must return.

A must have every time we are in Pacific Grove (which is once a year). Love the spring rolls! The owner always remembers us and the fact that I do not want squid in my fried rice.

We were there for dinner a couple weeks ago. The food was excellent and the lady owner was super nice and friendly. She even gave us more rice to go with the sauce in the dish! Definitely would go back there.

Every thing was delicious here and the atmosphere & service couldn't be beat! A ten-dollar corkage fee was icing on the cake.

Excellent food and great owners! Over the years I have tried most of the menu, I have liked it all. I now come down from the Sacramento are with my Dad and we always eat here at least once. We have our favorite table, the corner looking out with an ocean view. Gary M and father Frank M

I've written on this restaurant before but had to again. The food is still wonderful, fresh to order, special requests easily handled, and the atmosphere great. I had to write again because the service is spectacular! More than just friendly, they are helpful. Never had a dish, or even this type of cuisine? They will help and recommend a few... More

This place gets all five stars, and well deserved. I am embarrassed to say we have lived here in PG for ten years and had never gone to An Choi. It's past downtown Pacific Grove so I think it gets forgotten about, but let me assure everyone it is well worth the trip. The Clay Pot Fish was remarkable. The... More

Stayed at Lighthouse Inn and this restaurant was just down the street. Cute place. The owners are Thanh and Christine Truong who escaped communist Viet Nam in a harrowing and amazing boat trip. I asked at length about them because I'm a Viet Nam Vet. Let me tell you about the wonderful food we ate. First was a soft shell... More

I ate there 2 nights in a row and would definitely go back. Best Pad Thai I've ever had and shared bites of dishes ordered by friends. The chef knows what he/she is doing! And the ambiance is really nice, not cheap and tacky like many Asian restaurants can be. The service was great too!
