We hiked down to Archie's Wok, right in the heart of Puerto Vallarta, and got the last available table right before 6 p.m. It's a funky place, with eclectic décor, and casual but fast service. The three of us ordered food to share: sesame cucumbers, red curried chicken, and the BBQ pork riblets. Unbelievable! The flavors! We're all small eaters,... More

The food is an excellent fusion of flavors. The interior is old Puerto Vallarta. The service is very good.

In July we came to Archie's Wok with a large party, we did not have reservations. However they quickly accomodated our large group in the private dining area in the back. They made us feel special and did a great job of providing us a great evening!

We have been going to Archie's for over 20 years and have never been disappointed. The food is fantastic starting with their hot and sour soup, spice of life salad and do not go there without trying the ribs. Even if you order the ribs as a side dish to share, make sure you taste them. Actually everthing is good... More

He ordered the fried pasta with shrimp and I ordered a among chicken, both excellent taste, no sickness and the service was good,... More

When you need a break from the local cuisine, this is a nice option. The quality and variety were worth every peso. I did see 2 other options for Asian cuisine in the area but this was the only one that was consistently busy. We had a dine in dinner one evening and take-out another and each were very enjoyable....

An interesting different food experience in Puerto Vallarta. The menu fronts are made from children's art work, nice touch. Story on back of menu tells the history of Archie's Wok, quite interesting. Decent Asian/Thai food here. Small place with A/C. Wait staff a bit aloof and in a rush at times, not overly friendly. We started with drinks, having a... More

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.
