A word from Asia de Cuba - London
Asia de Cuba combines elements of Asian and Cuban cuisine served sharing-style in a high energy, sophisticated, yet relaxed environment. Located on St. Martins Lane, Asia de Cuba is a one-of-a-kind space centered around a series of majestic "art columns", each displaying a different and stunning composition. The Asia de Cuba concept also includes the famous Rum Bar; it has the largest selection of "sipping" rums available in London, as well as unusual and intriguing selection of specialty cocktails, many of which are Asia de Cuba signatures.

We are proud to announce the introduction of a brand new experiential afternoon tea which will send guests into the mystique and ambiance of a Cuban teahouse. The tea will be served in bespoke crockery inspired by Cuban culture and unconventional design.

Diner Reviews
  • "I think the restaurant just misses something. Not much ambience. My partner liked the place. I thought the food was nice, although smallish portions and a little expensive. I don't think I'll go back or recommend it. Nothing special I'm afraid."
    dined on 21/04/2014
  • "We had the tasting menu offer which I think was actually 5 courses but this was more than enough we were so stuffed! I couldn't fault anything they even decorated the desert platter with a birthday candle and writing for me. Drinks are expensive with cocktails £11-£15 average! we think the a la carte may have been cheaper in the end! Staff were all really nice. "
    dined on 20/04/2014
  • "Felt 15% service charge added to the bill was a too much."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "Although the pre-theatre dinner menu is somewhat limited, there was a good option for vegetarians. The service was attentive, but not overwhelming - just right, in fact. The ambience was pleasant, but the toilets could be better lit. Overall, a good dining experience."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "The restaurant was lovely, though a bit hard to find as there is no sign board since it is in a listed building. But once we found it, we were welcomed by a very friendly staff. Seating was a bit closely laid out but the service was very good. We followed the staff recommendation and were very happy. The crab croquets deserve a special mention. Overall a great evening out. "
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "From the delicate ceviche appteizer through the perfectly-cooked coffee-crusted cuban steak, the meal was exceptional. The service was terrific and enjoyable, and the overall environment terrirfic for a Saturday eve in london. I've been going to AdC for many years, and my only regret is that their LA and NYC locations are closed."
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "Food was not good. Little flavour and distinctly average. This place won't last much longer unless it gets its food up to the standard of the rest of London's similarly priced restaurants. "
    dined on 19/04/2014
  • "Be warned this restaurant is on the ground floor of, what I believe to be an office block/hotel and does not have a sign outside, it took us two attempts to find it. However, the food was fantastic, we had the 2/3 course set menu which was very good value and delicious. The portion size was just right, not so big you felt stuffed and not too small you were left feeling hungry. Very attentive staff, no hanging around in between courses, so ideal if you're going to see a show. The sparkling water was very expensive though at £5 per bottle!! A good choice if you want to try something different."
    dined on 18/04/2014
  • "We went for the pre-theatre deal. Much bigger portions than we expected. Food was good. Didn't have time to try the desert though! Bit pricey for two courses and one glass of wine. £80. Could be the 15% service charge..? Good service, but not that good. Overall good and a something a bit more special for pre-theatre dinner."

  • "Perfect location for pre theatre dinner. Fast and attentive service. Food was very good, especially the tuna. Very good value set menu. Would go back."
    dined on 14/02/2014
  • "The waitdress who was serving seems to be a big fan of fried food - all her recommendations are deep fried and quit disappoint... "
    dined on 16/02/2014
  • "Really good food and excellent service. We tried the tasting menu which came with a glass of champagne. The food was of excellent quality! "
    dined on 14/04/2014
  • "Went there with a friend and we opted for the tasting menu with additional starters/ Very nice and filling as well!"
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "the pre-theatre top table deal is good value. great prompt service but i find the food is getting a little tired. we were in and out in an hour so i can't find fault with the slick operation"
    dined on 03/04/2014
  • "Fantastic service. Brilliant customer service. Perfect food. Would defiantly be going back."
    dined on 12/04/2014
  • "My partner and I went to Asia de Cuba before heading to the theatre. It didn't start off to well as we really struggled to find the restaurant which has no signage that we could see on the outside of the building, however, once inside it was all postive. We have the £22 meal deal, which covered two courses. Both were not only delcious, but were beautifully presented too. We also had a couple of cocktails which were brilliant, they have an amazing Rum selection which greatly impressed and excited my partner. The cherry on the top was the great service we received. I can't speak highly enough of our servers who were delightful and very attentive. Highly recommend this restuarant and I will definitely be back!"
    dined on 09/04/2014
  • "We were excepting something more special for the price and image of the place. The food was good, but lacking some character. Place and personnel were great."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "Food was amazing the tasting menu gives a little insight to what those magical people in the kitchen can do. The service was v good with everyone being attentive to a level that was formal but still relaxed. My only gripe and it's a small one, where I was sat there was not a lot of room between the tables, so our neighbours could almost reach out and grab a bite of our food as well as joining in our conversation. All in all a very nice place to take someone on a special occasion."
    dined on 08/04/2014
  • "I am a very regular customer , but last time I was in Asia de Cuba I had a bad experience with both service and food. But as always loyalty is won after a great gesture of customer service rights a wrong. I was invited by the Manager to dinner as a token of confidence from a regular customer and to try to prove that the last negative experience was an exception and I have to say he did an stellar job. This time service was great, food was great and overall everything came right as it use to be in this great restaurant. So thank you and you have won me back"
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "We had a pre-theatre top table option here, which was lovely. My squid starter was huge for a starter, the tuna main was the opposite, which was slightly weird. However, everything was tasty and great balance of flavours. The menu was good value and I really like the decor in here - I have been to the bar many times and always enjoy it. The service was very odd, with the waitress talking very rapidly in broken english whilst sitting on the table adjacent to ours drowning us in her perfume... she said things like "if you like fish we recommend the tuna and if you are vegetarian the vegetables are recommended" (tuna was the only fish main and there was only one veg option, so rather unnecessary). She also read out the entire menu for us..."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "Booked table for 7 for a birthday celebration on Top Table special deal. Menu interesting. Food good but dishes rather lacking in vegetables. Room is very large and all hard surfaces, so very noisy. A fun atmosphere but not the place for a quiet meal for two. Worth a try if you can find it: for some reason they don't think it necessary to have any signs outside."
    dined on 22/02/2014
  • "Asia de Cuba combines all you want from a restaurant: Excellent and creative food, excellent service and an elegant but cosy atmosphere. The waiter "warned" us that the portions are so big, that he recommanded sharing. That was a good advice. We were three persons and ordered two starters, two main courses and one dessert. We couldn't finish any of them. That may sound strange since the food was extremely delicious, but we had to make room for the rest of the meal. All the dishes were delicious and somehow different from what I have tasted in other restaurants. The service were excellent: Not too pushy, good advices and the waiter made us feel at home. I will recommand this restaurant to all my friends going to London in the future."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "We went to Asia De Cuba for a Birthday Meal and was amazed the food was brilliant and the service was amazing - we would recommend it to anyone best restaurant we have visited for a long time."
    dined on 05/04/2014
  • "Another top class meal, would go here anytime, I would urge anyone to try this outstanding venue."
    dined on 30/03/2014
  • "I've been here on numerous occasions, there aren't many restaurants I'd revisit nowadays, but this is one that hasn't disappointed yet! The tasting menu is great, and the staff are always good about adapting it for dietary requirements, (make sure you add a side of lobster mash to you meal for that extra luxury :) Its great for couples and groups, do try it."
    dined on 01/10/2013
  • "We went for a pre-theatre menu which at £22 for 2 courses seemed OK (albeit there are a lot of cheaper places around - but this had good reviews). Booked for 6pm - shown to table very promptly and orders for drinks and food taken quickly. By 6:30pm we had had our starter and main but it had not felt rushed. They then brought the menus again for dessert which we had not planned to have but on looking, were tempted! However, 20 minutes later we were still sat there, no-one having come near us and so it was too late and we just had to get the bill - frustrating! Food was good and nicely presented. Glad we had a table in the upper part of the restaurant though - the tables in the lower part looked very crammed in."
    dined on 04/04/2014
  • "We had a lovely starter and main course - with one cocktail and ended up paying around £65.00 per person .... Not cheap - A treat. A little overly priced though - But food was very good."
    dined on 01/04/2014
  • "Visited on Monday and had lovely lunch .Service was good and food was well presented. Had a non alcoholic cocktails as don't drink alcohol and it was so tasty. You must try churros as well."
    dined on 31/03/2014
  • "Went there with a friend for a pre theatre dinner. Lovely food. Worked out less than £30 per person before drinks. Service is very friendly and non intrusive. Also, you get a refreshing mojito as a part of your meal. What not to like?"
    dined on 06/07/2013
  • "My friend and I often visit London for the day and visit the galleries and then stop for a luxury lunch; anyway we have visited Asia de Cuba before and had a fantastic lunch, however this time the way you order food has now changed and instead of small sharing dishes you have your "own" plate, the menu was restricted, the food was sub-standard the service poor and the cost just ridiculous. To add insult to injury they also charged us service (without asking) which then increase our bill by £17.00 and there were only 2 of us; the service was not worth £17. We would not go back"
    dined on 31/03/2014
  • "Service careless and inaccurate. the dishes are placed in the middle of the table, and every time you have to ask what is two dishes did not arrive with the other, only after our reminder we have been brought to the table the bill (expensive) was wrong and we were charged two dishes ever taken the hall was full of people, the tables are very close to others and you could not speak to the noise"
    dined on 29/03/2014
  • "Asia de Cuba remains one of my favourite restaurants in town. Dining this time with clients from overseas, I am happy to say everything at the restaurant was to their liking. The staff as ever were excellent and attentive, with the food up to the usual high standard with great dishes to share.The octopus starter proved to be a particular favourite, along with the Cuban coffee crusted rib eye, which was cooked to perfection! Will definitely be back."
    dined on 28/03/2014
  • "When we asked for the Top table menu, they were not happy...they gave it to us but since we changed waiters twice, when the bill arrived, they had charged us more that they should have, so we had to struggle quite a bit. The food is not great and it is pricy. The ambience is fair but not special, service is poor. I wouldn't recommend it."
    dined on 11/12/2013
  • "Enjoyable pre-theatre tasing menu. Good sized portions with great flavours. We went with toptable deal £55 including glass of champagne which made it better value."
    dined on 29/03/2014
