If you're a fan of Panda Express, this place is not for you. I've lived in San Francisco and visited Hong Kong many times, so I know good Chinese food when I see it. Ann's Asian Bistro is the real thing and probably the only place in the West Valley to get food this good. The menu is uncomplicated and straight forward, featuring many hard to find items. Prices are reasonable, considering the freshness of the food and expert preparation. The owners, husband and wife team William and JoAnn, are personable and eager to please. A huge bonus is the warm, comfortable ambience of the dining room and adjoining bar, unusual for most Asian restaurants. Beer and wine prices are low for an upscale restaurant. House wine by the glass is $3.00 and "craft" beers are under $5.00. If you like Chinese food, you'll love Ann's.

The simple lunch menu - $7 for chicken or steak dishes - including soup, egg roll or Wonton. fried or white rice lets 2 people dine, drink, tip, tax for $25 - 30 - and the soup doesn't taste like it's out of a can like Chang's does.

If you enjoy good Asian dining, Ann's Asian Bistro is ideal. There is a wide variety of dining options all expertly prepared, seasoned and served. They have the best Pad Thai I've ever had. But there are a number of beef, shrimp, chicken, rice, noodle and vegetables dishes prepared a variety of ways to tempt any pallet. Ann's also offers a good variety of appetizers and desserts. The restaurant also has a fully-stocked bar. The ambience is delightful and indoor and outdoor seating is available. Bottom line this is a great go to place for a casual and delicious Asian meal. Service is top notch too.

The food flavors, textures, temperature, freshness, and presentation are fantastic. This was our first visit and it was our 33rd anniversary! The value is beyond expectations. The dishes are served up family style, so the price is literally for enough food to feed two! We went for a four course meal--starter (lettuce wraps), appetizer (steamed pot stickers), main dish (seafood hot pot & curry, curry chicken), and dessert (green tea ice cream & sesame balls). Kirin beer and their House Sake WARM topped it all off. Had left overs of just about everything (ice cream was devoured)! Its a casual place, so every day dinner out is appropriate. It doesn't end here....the service was fantastic too!

We really enjoyed our dinner here. We have been waiting for a decent Asian restaurant in Surprise. We found the food similar to some that we had in loved while traveling in Hong Kong. We will definitely be back and bring friends.
