I had the chicken & peanuts with steamed rice, on my way from Vedado to Old Havana. Originally decided to go there because of Lonely Planet, but I'm really glad I did. The waiter was really sweet and made some recommendations before I ordered. Nice, clean, and down a cute side-street in Chinatown, Havana. It's not five-star dining, but is... More

I want to make sure nobody gets trapped in this trick again: when I approached the restaurant staff to ask (in my almost perfect Spanish....) if they had any good meal big enough to be shared I was assured that few dishes were available....... so my friend and I decided to go for a dish of stir fry meat and...

After a week of Cuban cuisine we HAD to have something different and this place was just what we needed! Some noodles and spice and flavor! I will not claim that this is the best Chinese I had in my life, but they do have a huge selection of food, and the best part of it is - it is... More

Having been to Cuba 7 years ago, I had fond memories of the only non-pathetic meal I had on that trip, which was had here. In that time, many things changed, particularly the quality of the food to be had generally across the island. Tien Tan was remarkably consistent, no worse, but also no better, for the rising competition, both... More

We went here on the basis of other reviews and were not disappointed. Somehow the chef has got hold of plenty of Chinese spices so the food tastes wonderful. The service is also excellent. We recommended it to other people staying in our Casa and like us they had a really good meal and service.

This restaurant was recommended by Lonely Planet as their pick. They usually have very good comments about places and I decided to try the Chinese in Cuba. It was ok but nothing special. The food is greasy as usual for the Chinese food. Portions are big. All restaurants' staff is very aggressive at Barrio Chino. As soon as you enter... More

Me and my other half were recommended this restaurant by our local friend - we went for a late lunch and loved it. The restaurant is similar to those in China Town in London. The portions are sizeable and the food quality is controlled by the Chinese chef. It is very cosy both inside and outside on a tiny little... More

The name indicate asian food, but it was difficult to see on the menu card. We ordered two asian dishes. The difference was hard to recognise.- however lonely planet was right about the size of the portions which were huge.

We walked further and further down this alley which comprises the bulk of Chinatown (don't be fooled by the archway that says "Barrio Chino"--it's several blocks away from that. We kept walking down the alley and decided on this restaurant because it was the only one that had Chinese people eating in it. We took a table outside (maybe a... More
