“A Great Dining Experience in Pacific Grove”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

I took my wife to An Choi in Pacific Grove for her birthday, and we couldn't have been happier with our experience. Just a ten-minute walk up from glorious Asilomar Beach and next door to the Olympia Lodge where we stayed, An Choi has inventive food, excellent service and a very friendly staff. The chef's daughter was our waitress (very friendly and efficient), the chef's wife was the hostess (great suggestions about the food and the wines), and the chef, Thanh, even came out to chat and answer our questions about his food. He was trained in his hometown Saigon as well as in Belgium. We had jicama spring rolls with a mild peanut sauce and shrimp and onion tempura for appetizers with a Monterey chardonnay, and I had the canard d'orange with a nice syrah, while my wife had the Tamarind Prawns with garlic noodles for our entrees. High quality, freshness, and great taste all around. Great fusion Asian cuisine. We will be back!

“Great food, eh drinks.”
Reviewed March 31, 2013

The potstickers with shiitake mushrooms are amazing! The martini ideas are delicious, but execution needs work (tip: ice should never be in a martini glass).

“A real winner!!”
Reviewed March 14, 2013

Entering An Choi, you are struck by the serenity of the decor and the immaculate interior. Our extended meal was superb, beautifully presented and obviously made with only the freshest of ingredients. This was our second dinner here - and it won't be our last.

“So fresh!”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

If you like fresh, skillfully prepared, artfully presented Asian sea food at a reasonable price, this is your restaurant! If Christine's Vietnamese-American menu is new to you, she is a helpful guide. We have eaten hear twice and have decided to make a yearly pilgrimage from our home in the Sierras.
