Walking in, the area to wait or to be greeted was awkward. No regular hostess station to greet you. They have a big table full of business cards from visitors and locals. Maybe they need to work on that area to look a little more like a greeting area. Don't let that steer you away, we just walked a little further up toward the bar area and were greeted. Nice menu,plenty of asian dishes to choose from, sharing style or combo plates, lots of apps and platters to choose from. The problem is to make a decision on what you want because it is all very good choices.Started with the Sampler Platter which had crab rangoon, mini egg rolls, chicken rolls, edamame and won tons. Nice variety with dipping sauce. Also had Moo Goo Gai Pan, good fresh chicken and vegetables not a heavy sauce, just right with Jasmine rice or 1.00 for fried rice. Could have had a little more rice to share, but it was very good.Also had the Kung Pau Beef. Just enough spice, good pieces of tender beef, not the processed kind, this was the real deal beef. Good sauce and veggies. Also came with white rice, but chose the fried rice. Fried rice was good but did not have anything in it, no mini veggies chopped, no egg pieces, but was very tasty. All portions are very good for sharing and bringing some home too. The staff is very nice. Jenny was accommodating, but the gentleman server who helped her was very friendly and even more accommodating, super personality. Nice place, good bar area. Outdoor seating. Has Happy Hour 3-5 and at 7 pm. 1.00 off wine and beer and 1.00 appetizers. They have cooking classes which I have heard are really great.

Been searching this area for a good Chinese/Asian place to eat. After many disappointments, found Ann's. I really enjoyed this place. Food was great and plenty of it! Not the largest place but was nice and quiet and clean. Good selection of food. The two us us spent $45 and that was because we ordered too much. Brought some home. Give it a tray.

Not only is the food at Ann's the best Chinese food available anywhere near Surprise but if you love to attempt new dishes don't miss taking one of the cooking classes offered which is an absolute bargain. I took a class in making pot stickers from the dough to the filling & learned so much. The only problem is that after eating the pot stickers at Ann's & learning to make them, I will never enjoy either eating them somewhere else or buying frozen ones at a Chinese grocery store. By the way I learned that they aren't that easy to make & will appreciate them more at Ann's. Don't expect to get your food quickly because everything is made to order & that takes time.

Found this gem "Ann's Asian Bistro" by accident but i believe this restaurant is by far the best my wife and i have experienced in the Phoenix valley. If you like good Asian Ann's Bristo is a must. Why go for run of the mill cheap when for a few dollars more top shelf is available. Jim
