Description: For global travellers with a cultured palate and a love of variety, Asia de Cuba is a destination restaurant with a must-taste fusion philosophy. The iconic St Martins Lane eatery has been newly renovated and now offers an updated menu and whimsical, enchanting interior design. Cuban-born executive concept chef Luis Pous enhances Jeffrey Chodorow's original culinary vision with experimental combinations and a new twist on old favourites. Inspired by the cultural synthesis of old Havana's Chinatown, Pous interprets Asian-influenced Cuban fare for a modern crowd and a discerning palate. The new Asia de Cuba retains the same authentic preparations, tropical accents, and sharing-style presentation loved by guests and food critics alike, now enhanced with a creative new menu and a chic new dining sanctuary. Fresh ingredients, handcrafted dishes, and eye-catching interiors make for an unforgettable dining experience with surprising cultural flavours. Bottomless Brunch runs from Friday to Sunday, with live music on a Saturday. Summer Terrace: Created in partnership with premium gin Tanqueray No. TEN, discover our summer terrace at St Martins Lane which is divided into two elements, representing the hotel’s interior outlets. One part echoes The Den serving Gin & Tonic Afternoon Tea that will satisfy and surprise the most discerning of the tipple’s enthusiasts; the other will reflect Asia de Cuba providing a selection of exclusive gin pairings.

Went here for my partners Birthday on a Sunday evening and even though it wasn't busy, the atmosphere was great due to the style of the restaurant and the fun and knowledgable team. Endique was our Waiter and he was determined to make our evening fabulous, which it was. On arrival of each course we were reminded what we had ordered with a little background on specific ingredients (such as the 48 hour marinated pork) They also did a Birthday plate for my partner. On leaving, we spoke to one of the Managers who said on return we could request the same Waiter.....nice touch. We were also offered two complimentary cocktails in the adjoining Light Bar which again, was a lovely touch. Overall, good service in comfortable surroundings with those all important little extras that really make an experience and one which we shall definitely wish to have again when next in the area.

Booked a table here for our wedding anniversary, didn't know what to expect but the reviews were good.
We chose the tasting menu and the variety was great and the food tasted amazing. I expected small portions but that couldn't be further from the truth, there was so much food.
The service was spot on, friendly efficient and with enough of a gap left between courses for the food to settle!
The ambience was great, the place had a nice buzz to it and I liked the decor.

I had a great time at Asia de Cuba. The food was delicious and service was superb. The italian waiter ´patrizio´was the highlight of the night. He is hilarious and very nice.
