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.

Wow! We had 6 shared dishes and each o e was absolutely amazing. The BBQ chicken, ceviché and calamari salad were exceptional. Tuna, mashed potatos and the Cod were also spectacular. Great ambiance and close to Soho so perfect for a young crowd. I highly recommend heading here!

We shared three starters and one main between three of us and the servings were huge. The calamari salad and grilled Octopus were superb and the seared tuna main with wasabi mash was a knockout!

Had not been here for a few years, but still great unusual flavours with friendly service. We chose to go after the theatre on a Friday night and the large restaurant was packed and buzzing. Still as good now as when it first opened.

Really delicious fixed price lunch menu, and a great lunchtime cocktail. Service was friendly and efficient, decor interesting and ambience relaxed and funky. Would thoroughly recommend for a treat.

Funky restaurant based in glass office building lobby (nicely converted for restaurant with lighting and deco but feels still like high ceiling lobby).

Company event. Staff service is top notch as expected given the price, menu was unexpectedly personalized with the organizer's name - nice detail.

But if you want real Asian food I'm afraid this is nowhere near the taste I expect from Chinese or Japanese or Malaysian. Quite average.
