Not what I expected at all. I’ve been to crustaceans in BH and hoping at least the garlic noodles will taste the same but it didn’t. I ordered the tiger prawns with garlic noodles and the the tiger prawns gig this this “after taste” and it’s over cooked which made it rubbery . For $54 it wasn’t worth it at all, I should have complained about it but our waiter only came by to take our order , checked with us once then give our bills . I had to remind him of the lemons I asked for, our glass water never got a refill. I had high expectations from AnQi but unfortunately, this was not a good experience.

Great but the pork belly in bao could be a BIT crispier !

I miss the VIP RED CARD which they discontinued unfortunately. Been going here for maybe 10 years ? Since they opened

We love coming to AnQi but our service was disappointing. We arrived and we ordered our beverages and appetizers. We received our appetizers but we didn't receive our beverages till we finished our appetizers. The server brought the 2 margaritas and a carafe of wine but forgot the wine glass. We placed our order for entrees and they were received in a timely manner, we didn't receive our rice that we ordered. The server finally admitted that she forgot to order the rice. We cancelled it as we had finished our entrees. The food is always excellent and usually the service is but tonight it was disappointing.

Unfortunately we’ve dined here and this was not a good experience. Our server didn’t even take our drink order for 20 minutes and that was with a reservation, and going to the manager. There were no follow ups from the manager regarding service or ensuring our needs were met. High priced restaurant for a decline in overall service and management.

We have been going to AnQi for years. They never failed us :-). The food was always tasty and the service was always great. We had a party of five for a birthday celebration. Everyone enjoyed their meals. We definitively will come back again.

SO OVERPRICED, you pay for the ambience because it's in Bloomingdale's literally lol.

For example: $16 for 3 tiny feta cheese phyllo (like spanakopita), $16 for 3 tiny veggie dumplings. The food has good flavor but honestly not worth it.

The service and ambience are nice though.

This is one of the most amazing restaurant's ever. I always bring clients here instead of the traditional Steak house type place as the food here is unique and amazing. You literally have to come this restaurant a number of times so you can try everything on the menu! It's that good across the board.

Beautiful restaurant, had the tuna tacos which were amazing & the snapper which was good but could have been more flavorful. Dessert was a chocolate mousse bombe that was delicious & our cocktail was wonderful too. Some of the dishes seem overpriced. Overall a tasty pleasant experience.

Went to Anqi with high expectation via a friend, whose recommendations are always great. Food was not as good as I thought. Not sure if COVID has affected the restaurants but the quality was less than what I expected. I got their famous dungeons crab but I can’t say day I’ll have it again for $95:/

Anqi is a polarizing restaurant in my family. My wife and son have eaten there before and enjoyed their food. I experienced them for the first time this weekend and things (primarily the food) were hit or miss. The restaurant is nicely decorated with adequate spacing between tables and kept clean. The service was very good. The music was louder than I like and while the room was mostly dark, there were spotlights over most tables which helped. My wife got a Vietnamese coffee which she always enjoys. The beef pho my son and I got were delicious. I asked for the bean sprouts to be steamed, but for some reason, they told me they were unable to do that. Despite that, the pho was fantastic. I would get it again. The portion was good and everything was fresh. The fish my son ordered was also delicious. The portion was a tad smaller than expected and the rice it was served on was a bit oily, but the fish itself was great and he finished it quickly. My wife enjoyed her garlic noodles (she described them as being "the same as last time" which is high praise for her), though the chicken skewers were okay. They did not stand out in particular. We had an order of truffle fries which were very good but very rich. We enjoyed them nonetheless. Finally, we had an order of dumplings. While my wife and son did enjoy them, I could not discern any unique flavors to them. These were the biggest miss of the meal for me. The texture was nice and it was fresh, but the dumplings themselves were lacking to me. Our meal came out to just over $170 for the 3 of us after tax and tip. Some dishes were definitely better than others. I would not rule out coming back here again to try other dishes, but I think we will try out the new restaurant across the way before we venture back here again. Anqi is worth trying at least once and the menu is varied enough that you will definitely find something you enjoy. Just be aware that there could be a miss here and there.

Martinis very disappointing, but server did correct it after we brought it to his attention. Sadly, server never checked on us. We could’ve used a glass of wine during our dinner. He returned after we finished our meal. In addition, no one recognized my B. Day celebration even when I highlighted this on the reservation.
