If you've never experienced Chino-Latino fusion food, Asia de Cuba makes an ideal introduction. Expect a melting pot of flavours and ingredients, ranging from South American ceviches and empanadas to Asian specials such as Thai lobster curry with udon noodles and gai choy. Dishes play fast and loose with the rules, pairing Cuban-style pork and black beans with Chinese eggplant and Thai chilli chimichurri, for example. Our current favourites range from juicy scallop ceviche with slivers of fresh grapefruit and a hit of punchy ají panca sauce (a type of Peruvian chilli) to deliciously moist ‘seven-spice’ chicken with snow peas, shiitake mushrooms and creamy Cuban congri (black rice). There's a real buzz to the trendy dining room, though service can be frenetic and we feel the that the vibrant interior, with its quirky Philippe Starck-designed columns, is trying too hard to be hip.

Disappointed with the service level. They did not have the white wine which I had preferred to order, and the waiter recommends the most expensive bottle on the wine list. Requested the waiter to help in ordering the starters for party of six thinking we had under ordered, and at his recommendation we ordered more which was just wasted. For the main meal we all individually ordered except for the two who had ordered to share a fish. The main course came to the table, but the waiter refused to split the shared order and instead told us that he cannot serve and we had to do it ourselves. He would not even bring the serving plate to enable us to serve ourselves. The problem was the table was too long and was not possible to serve ourselves. Finally one of our guests took it on his own to serve the fish.
Ordered another bottle of white wine, which was brought to the table, but forgotten to serve. Had to request another waiter a couple of times to get served.
After complaining to the manager, she took off the bill the wine, and the service charges but the night out was ruined by incompetent waiter.
Positive side was that the kitchen had done a great job, however not served to its best.

The décor and ambiance here is really quite nice and the servers were surprisingly friendly and pleasant considering the restaurant's location within the too-cool-for-school St Martins Lane Hotel. The food is, as the name suggests, an interesting mix of Latin American and Pan Asian. We tried the oxtail dumplings and selection of ceviche to start, both of which were tasty and fresh followed by the Cuban chicken which is served with a delicious salsa and Thai sticky rice. Very good. The prices were reasonable all things considered and the wine list had some cheap but perfectly drinkable options. The cocktails also come recommended especially the Pico Sour, Mint & Mandarin and the Vanilla & Rhubarb. The only small downside was that our server seemed very keen to sell us more than we really wanted and there were a couple of occasions when the servers were nowhere to be seen. Otherwise, a fun experience which we will try again soon.

For the prices charged the service was very poor.

A by today's standards almost classical pioneer of modern Asian fusion food. While it no longer carries the hype it once had, it is still a good food destination in particular if you're in a larger group and able to share the dishes. Price tag still fairly heavy (in particular on the wine list over and above the food itself)
