    Outdoor eating area was pleasant but noisy with road traffic. Also another table had another diner full of himself and broadcast his boasting through the outside eating area. We asked to be moved inside and staff quickly and pleasantly moved us inside. Air conditioning was cranking so be prepared with shawl or jacket.

    Love the indoor decorating, we were put at a table right near the door so we got all the traffic coming and going, fortunately it was lunch so not too busy. Really thought the food was just perfect, everything we ordered was delicious. I do think the food prices are high and I don't like that you only serve wine by the glass. We were there for a birthday and told our waiter but no free dessert or anything to celebrate. I would love to go back but only for a special occasion.

    The food never dissapoints. However, this night, the service was slow and lacking. Had to remind wait staff of drink orders etc. It was stated from the staff "a light night for reservations, sent one bartender home". What ever the real story, we will return again.

    We were in a group of 6...and wanted to add 2 people so we called in advance and they were not very accommodating but when we went to the restaurant it was half empty. Also the menu is not vegetarian friendly at all so we asked the chef to see what he can do and the answer was "we are low in inventory so we cannot accommodate". This is the first time I have heard that in a restaurant in Raleigh. Will not go there again and do not recommend for vegetarians...

    We enjoyed our dinner at An. We were entertaining guests from out of town and all of us thought the restaurant was well appointed and the food was delicious. There were some traditional menu choices as well as some more exotic ones. If you're in the mood for Asian food or sushi, give it An try.

    How far would you drive for dinner? If you are like us and want exceptional pan Asian food in a great environment, An is worthy of almost three hours round trip. Not your everyday Chinese food! Our choice was the sea bass for my wife and Singapore noodles for me - both outstanding. Sushi appetizers, and a nice Wine completed the experience. Of my hundreds of Asian dining experiences around the world, this in my personal top five.

    I had another delicious meal at An. I brought an out-of-town friend, and she thought it was amazing! We came for an early lunch, so the noise level was much lower than when I've been before at night. The sea bass and rice soup was so light and fresh! The Korean Fried Chicken had a crunchy, flavorful crust. We shared the Tropical dessert, with flavors of lime, white chocolate, and more! I use any event as an excuse to come dine at An!

    My wife and I wanted a nice romantic place to dine, but this was more of a business environment. As a matter of fact, we were the only couple there. The other tables were filled with business people and coworkers. The food was fantastic, but we spent more time talking about how uncomfortable we were being there than actually talking about us. I'm sure the atmosphere would have been much different on a Friday or Saturday night, but I'm not sure if we will go then either. If you ever have a client I need to take out do dinner, I would certainly recommend this place.

    I love this place. I only go here with close friends because we just sit back, drink wine, and enjoy the whole dinner experience like we have all the time in the world. While the lunch is good as well, it's really all about the dinner menu and night time ambience. The menu changes every so often, but certain staples are always present (like the fresh baked chocolate chip macadamia cookies, and the vegetable tempura...right now it's okra). Overall I can't get enough of this place, the wait staff is very attentive and friendly and the music is always fitting. Check it out if you enjoy a twist on Asian cuisine in Cary.

    We have eaten at An several times and always been pleased but this last visit was a mixed bag. A group of four, we ordered 3 appetizers to share. The fried okra was terrific as were the vietnamese sausage rolls. The pork dumplings, on the other hand, had a good flavor but were rubbery. The sea bass remains excellent. But, the new addition of chicken and waffles had nothing to recommend them. The chicken was overcooked and dry and the excellent cherry sauce sparsely applied. The waffles were interesting but added nothing to the dish. For $27, it was greatly overpriced.

    The food itself was great, but I was disappointed in the portion of it. After eating a main dish and appetizer (cost about $50), I was still not full. I've been to many Japanese restaurants in NYC with the similar price range as An Cuisine, but their food quality was amazing with the satisfying portion.
