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.

We have been visiting PVR since 1999, but this was our first visit to Archie's Wok. There were two of us, so we split an order of Cashew Chicken. My only regret was that I split the entree. It was fantastic. I can't figure out why it took me so long to try this restaurant. It will definitely be on my list for next year.

First, the food is downright excellent - will presented and the service is excellent. There's plenty of variety on the menu so going there a couple times a week is not a problem. This is a must do restaurant in PVR

Once you've had your fill of fattening Mexican food, go find this option right near the beach. Wonderful food, quick preparation (for Mexico) and a friendly, pro staff.

We went twice, and all of it was superb. The fish wrapped in Banana leaves is great, and my wife wanted to go back for a second serving of their Pad Thai. I have to agree with all the positive reviews you can read here!
