Visited the Asia de Cuba in Abu Dhabi and therefore had high expectations for the London version. Food and service was ok for a London restaurant, nothing extraordinary. Hope they can invest more behind this restaurant as they have with the Abu Dhabi one.

What is actually on the tasting menu? I am due to have dinner there next weekend (hen party) and am a bit apprehensive that it's not good value for £60.

Dont worry about the amount of food. There’s plenty! The good thing about the tasting menu is also the variety and you get to try so many things.

Description
For global travellers with a cultured palate and a love of variety, Asia de Cuba at St Martins Lane is a destination restaurant with a whimsical, enchanting interior design and a must-taste fusion philosophy. Cuban-born executive concept chef Luis Pous enhances Jeffrey Chodorow’s original culinary vision with experimental combinations and a new twist on old favourites. Inspired by the cultural synthesis of old Havana’s Chinatown, Pous interprets Asian-influenced Cuban fare for a modern crowd and a discerning palate. Reflecting the same authentic preparations, tropical accents and sharing-style presentation, Asia de Cuba is a chic dining sanctuary. For a taste of the tropics and loved by guests and food critics alike, the menu is full of fresh ingredients, handcrafted dishes, as well as our signature ceviche's. Teamed with our eye-catching interiors, Asia de Cuba makes for an unforgettable dining experience with surprising cultural flavours.
