Interesting setting, but do not deserve all the hype. If you are simply curious about this place, I recommend it. It could be a good experience. However, if you like to experi...

A personal mainstay in my dining options 5/18/2006

Yes, it's been around for a while and it's not perfect, but somehow I still love this place. And obviously, many other New Yorkers do as well. From the billowing white drapes that are signature Starck to the family-style portions of Asian-Cuban fusion, I love it. It is only here you can have dishes like oxtail spring rolls, crispy fish, and pineapple fried rice, without it tasting like your typical street food fare. Everything is well prepared and beautifully presented. Better make plans for afterwards, because one cup of their Cuban coffee with the sugarcane stick is enough to keep you buzzing through the rest of the night! more

asia de cuba 3/23/2006

Hip, trendy and still quite popular, this fusion restaurant in the Morgan Hotel serves creative and delicious dishes good for sharing. I visited Asia de Cuba for both dinner and lunch. The atmosphere is better in the evening of course. I remember the portions being not that big, especially for lunch, as I left still feeling a bit hungry. more

Good, but a little expensive 8/20/2005

It does not get much trendier that Asia De Cuba. The decor has a modern simplicity and the crowd the restaurant attracts is definitely trendy. It is recommended that you go here with a big group, as most entrees are meant for sharing. The food is an interesting fusion of Asian/Latin cuisine. Most of the meals have a fruity flavor like the calamari salad (which is server in an orange sauce) and the Cuban spiced chicken (which has a coconut flavor). Overall the meal was good, but I so not know if it was worth the hefty bill. more

Elegant and Family style 8/18/2005

Asia de Cuba may no longer be the hippest eatery on the block but it still has ambiance and attitude to spare. Before you blanch at the prices of the entress, be advised that the conceit of this establishment is that everything is served family style - whether you're a party of one or a family of six. Not a place for solo dining, to be sure. And for a couple, you have to be able to agree on what you'd like to eat. But if you can agree to agree you're in for a delicious dining experience. An added plus, it's one of a limited number of NYC restaurants with a gluten free menu more

  • With its billowing white curtains, two-story Philippe Starck design and sashaying samba music, Asia de Cuba still draws sexy crowds nightly, and the food hasn't changed much over the years either. There are still immense portions of big, gratifying proteins ranging from crispy calamari salad with chayote and hearts of palm to miso-cured Alaskan black cod, to Cuban black bean and edamame salad. The food is solid and dramatically presented, but more importantly it's always exactly the same--in a good way, like the restaurant experience as a whole. The youngish crowd, which tends to congregate in large parties, generally comes for the good times as much as the food.
