“you like authentic Cuban/Chinese food saty away”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

Let me start off by saying that it has about 15 years since I've had Cuban/Chinese food. So my wife decided for Father's Day to indulge my craving for this rare opportunity.In a nutshell, this is the worst excuse for authentic food. Paella was the equivalent of a lunch special from your local Chinese take out joint. Cuban fried rice was in fact traditional pork fried rice. CHICKEN CRACKLING PIECES WERE A POOR REPLICA FROM POPEYE'S 99 CENT MENU. Do your self a favor and stay away from this place. By the way ridiculously overpriced for inferior food.

“Best Food and Drinks on a Budget”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I have been coming here for years and it is only right I give this place a review. One of the few Chinese spots that still puts fried egg in the fried rice. The food is very good. I have introduced friends to this spot and they continue to come on their own. The drinks: nutcracker and Butta are excellent. The drinks are sold in 3 different sizes and might even be available for take out but don't quote me on that one. I highly recommend this restaurant and it has a double flavor: Chinese and Latin cuisine. You can never go wrong at this place.

“Old Standard on Its Last Leg”
Reviewed August 19, 2011

We have been going to the Nueva Victoria for years because they had old fashioned Cantonese dishes. But each time, the restaurant is shabbier and sadder. The food is not any longer really Cantonese. I wish they would fix up.
