Although the ambiance seems nice and the waiters are polite and young, the food is dismal and the famous all you can eat for a standard price does not work here. Most food is either microwaved or fried and tastes similar. The spare ribs my frIend ordered was full of bone chips and the only thing I really liked was the bread that we started with. It takes a while before the next round is served so order early. The food pretends to be from all over the world but that is a bit an overstatement. Conclusion: Spend your money somewhere else

Second visit to Asia de Cuba, apparently no affiliation with same name restaurant in L.A. Hard not to find a bunch of good tapas to enjoy from the large menu. Each time I go to the restaurant, I know what to order, what to pass on and have an even better time. I particularly like the homemade kibbeling (fried fish), garlic shrimp, and tom kha goong coconut soup. Popular spot for groups to munch away the time together. I've gone solo, sitting at the bar. The service has been really genuine, making me feel welcome. The amount of trips the staff must make back and forth from the kitchen to the tables is huge, each time bringing multiple small dishes. How they are able to do so all night with a cheerful smile is beyond me! Good food, nice service, and a fun dining experience!

What a shocking experience. The waitresses were delightful and friendly and the food acceptable but there it ends.

The concept is that you can eat as much as you like for a fixed price (currently €18:50). Sounds good? Sure, but the service is so slow that the small tapas like dishes take at least half an hour to arrive. Meanwhile, drinks are offered so, in the end, the drinks end up costing much more than the food, which probably has not arrived in other than very small measure.

As a measure of how slow the service is, in my last half hour at the restaurant, 4 couples left without ever having been presented with the menu.

Better go to a normal restaurant and pay the same but get a substantial meal and a bottle of wine for the same price.

I honestly can only recommend avoiding this place.

affordable and okay quality food. The interior design is cool as are the waiters. Just a good place to hang out and grab a quick meal on a weekday
