Description: Qba is a vibrant hotspot for social dining, combining signature Latin flavors with a fusion of dishes from all around the world to suit all tastes. Premium grilled steaks are the highlight of Qba's extensive menu, enhanced by a succulent selection of dishes for individual order or to share. Best enjoyed with a classic Latin cocktail from the bar, or selection from the extensive wine list. An experience not to be missed during any stay in Xiamen.

The live Cuban music is authentic and very lively from the 4 member band. The female vocals are sultry and inviting while the male vocal sooth the weary traveler.

Although the menu is quite extensive, most of the food falls short and lacks authencticity and the fiery Latin flavors. Their featured steak selections seems hopeful but the cooking method and flavor falls very short given their high prices.

The foreign managers are very friendly and trying but the local helps still lack service standards and know how. I hope they improve the favors and service given their location and prices. We really do need a good place to go in Xiamen so we really hope so.
