Asia de Cuba Review

Book a table at Asia de Cuba

Top 10 things you need to know about Asia de Cuba:

1) Keep your eyes peeled on your way to this Covent Garden restaurant. It’s not easy to spot. Located inside the St Martins Lane London hotel, the restaurant doesn’t have direct street access, and only a small street board acknowledges its whereabouts. Follow your phone’s map instead and look out for the luminous greeny-yellow revolving hotel doors.

2) A hotel restaurant it may be, but it certainly has its own bubbly character. With warm and attentive service and a lively atmosphere, even on a weekday evening, this quirky restaurant brings a little sunshine to Central London.

3) Choose the ambiance that fits the occasion. Coming for a catch-up with friends or colleagues? Opt for the buzzing lower half of the restaurant, with colourful Afro-Cuban themed posters, trinkets and books. For something a little more intimate, ask for a table on the upper, more formal section decorated in old-fashioned Cuban glamour.

4) Sip on one of the signature cocktails while browsing the menu. Choose from fresh sweet mixtures, to something with more of a rum kick.

5) The food here mixes Cuban and Asian techniques and flavours (hence the name!), recalling Cuba’s huge Chinese community. The fun, unusual Chino-Latino flavour combinations, beautifully served in the middle of the table for you to share, certainly give a lot to talk about.

6) The waiters are full of recommendations – so if you’re not sure what to pick, let them do the work for you!

7) Start with some ceviches and small plates. Crispy calamari with bananas and cashews? Tuna tartare with currants and avocado? Dainty raw fish cured in lemon juices? Yes, try it, it really does work!

8) Show off your skills with the chopsticks, stick to the knife and fork, or use your hands to get stuck right into the taco-style dishes.

9) If your budget can stretch to it, order the black cod main. Enthusiastically recommended by waiter and manager alike, the fish is astonishingly soft, with a hint of sweetness. A truly beautiful dish, and possibly the best piece of fish you’ve ever eaten.

10) If you’re not ready to go home after dessert, hop over to Blind Spot next door. Find the golden handshake in the back of the hotel lobby for entry into this decadent hidden bar.

“This restaurant has always been a pleasure for me to go, high quality dish with a very lively atmosphere.”

Miss Sedef Isim, Istanbul (6 years 10 months 12 days ago)

“Most of the dishes I tried are excelllent ... e.g. black cod, tuna. But some were just average. However, the restaurant can be very noisy and sometimes you have to shout if you want to be heard by the person sitting opposite. Also, there is one guy (waiter )who tries to sell you the most expensive dish / drink on the menu. It happened ot me few times there. He does makes you feel bad when you don't go for it. May be it's just me, but you dont want to feel like that when you are eating out in a not very cheap restaurant.”

Iris, london (7 years 2 months 24 days ago)

“Sadly, ADC did not live up to any of my expectations. All of the reviews were positive, and the resaurtant was highly rated. However the off negative review in there was absolutely correct. The food was below standard, in fact was very very basic dumplings, some of the worst that I have experienced. It took about 15 minutes before we were served with drinks and a 15% service charge was levied. This made for an incredibly expensive night out. Take your money elsewhere folks.”

Asia de Cuba Drinks Menu

In collaboration with Havana Club, we have created a new menu that pairs our signature ceviches with new cocktails, designed to compliment & enhance the flavours of each, evoking a sense of Old Havana. Freshly prepared sugarcane juice has been a staple of Cuban life for decades as it is known for being a natural immunity booster & infection fighter, as well as providing an instant kick of energy & quenching thirst.
