If you are an Asian food lover, you’ll find (at least based on a quick local search) more than 50 different types of asian restaurants in Puerto Vallarta. All offer a wide variety of different types of asian food and atmosphere. We’ve selected some top favorites that locals and visitors enjoy, but we encourage you to search and find an asian restaurant that can satisfy your taste buds.

Yamada Sushi

Located in the heart of the romantic area, Yamada Sushi is one of our staff favorites.

The attention to detail is incredible, both from the staff and the owners.  When it comes to the dishes they are very generous with their portion size and take great care to make sure everything is super fresh.

We recommend the California tempura roll, the Hibachi with chicken, beef and shrimp and the beef teriyaki which is delicious. For dessert, be sure to order their tempura ice cream , which is spectacular!

Bonito Kitchen

If you like Asian fusions, Bonito Kitchen is the place for you.

The restaurant space itself is incredible and allows you to enjoy its great cuisine and attention. There is a beautiful patio and garden where you can enjoy the Vallarta weather and occasionally they have live music.

Their cuisine includes Asian fused with typical dishes from Japan, Vietnam, Taiwan and Korea. It has also recently added fusions with Mexican cuisine.

Francie Nguyen, owner, was the first to bring the taste of ramen to Vallarta. And that’s another of her specialties, Ramen, prepared from scratch like the modern Japanese tradition with seasonings, fresh noodles and delicious garnishes. Their three versions are really delicious: shoyu, tantan or vegetarian.

Bonito Kitchen is a restaurant that seeks to explore and blend the traits shared by Vallarta and Vietnamese gastronomy, deepening the mutual love for cheerful, citrus and spicy flavors.

They have two locations in Puerto Vallarta, so check out which one suits you best and visit them!

Archie’s Wok

Another Asian fusion option is Archie’s Wok, freshly prepared authentic cuisine spanning the Pacific Rim from Thailand to the Philippines, China and Vietnam.

Traditional and contemporary dishes are served daily. We recommend the curry pastas, their ribs served with their famous hoisin sauce and the chiang mai sauce.

The menu is truly a potpourri cuisine, combining Pacific Island foods, Asian cooking techniques, fresh ingredients from Mexico and a host of other cultural and culinary influences.

Locally grown ingredients include a variety of vegetables, herbs and spices, such as kaffir lime, galanga, lemongrass, ginger, chillies, tamarind and coconut milk. These are native to both Asia and the Mexican Coast.

Archie’s Wok is just steps from the Los Muertos Beach pier and is a great place to gather with friends and family. Enjoy lunch and dinner in this sublime setting with Asian-style dining room and garden.
