Description: At Mambo Tea House, we offer authentic Cuban cuisine and Asian teas in a beautiful and cozy setting. The merge of two cultures is a direct reflection of the co-owners. The husband and wife team are from the Caribbean and Hong Kong, respectively. Come in for some delicious cuisine and friendly service! We are a BYOB!

Great ambiance, and food. The service is inconsistant. We have had great service and poor service. BYOB. They will make sangria out of your wine. Excellent traditional Cuban food. The chorizo appetizer is excellent. We have been working our way through the menu. It is all great. The best is the Ropa Vieja (shreaded beef).

I was there twice - once with a very large group where we ordered fro the pre-fixe menu, which is a great value. They ran out of rice and gave me a generous portion of delicious fried plaintains instead. The next time I went with my daughter with a groupon coupon and by the time I was finished, the cost was not worth what we had. Food is tasty and served in little aluminum pots.

We've been here a few times and really like it. The appetizers are great (empanadas are awesome) and the paella is good too. They have seating outside too which is nice. It is BYOB and they have sangria mix prepared if you bring wine.
