Every since this place was cut in half, the quality of its food was reduced by half. The won ton soup smelled and tasted like it was fermenting-- the beef was cooked and recooked- old and tough. The yellow rice was ok, but who can't make rice with yellow dye? My advice, stay away!

I just tried the sesame chicken with yellow rice. Slightly spicy, but i loved the taste. The chicken was a bit tough though. I am keen to try other dishes on the menu, and will give this place another chance.

The fried rice was excellent. That is the only good thing to say about this place. I ordered chicarrones or chicken crackling and they brought me chopped up fried chicken!! There was literally a chicken leg on my plate - that is not crackling. Not to mention the chicken was old, stale, dry and tasteless. The tostones were as thick as phone books and over cooked with dried up garlic as toppings. My friend ordred the steak which arrived dry with huge chunks of raw onions, also thickly cut. Also, the food arrived 60 seconds after placing the order, obviously it was sitting around. We had to hunt the waiter down to get water. Order only the fried rice here!!

I orderd the Cuban Pork and not only was it hard as a rock and dry as a bone it looked like t was around awhile. Iasked for some kind of sauce to make it edible and the waiter gave me a copule of packets of duck sauce. It didn't help. When I complained he just said that's the way it is suppose to be. The dentist's must do very well in Cuba. Stick to the Chinese Menu.

I have been coming to this restaurant for years. It is my favorite food in the world..But ever since they made it smaller it has never been the same. The food is dry , unseasoned and uneatable. Today I threw the rest of it out ..I will never go again ....Where will I go now? ..

My Cuban friends recommended me this restaurant for our trip to NYC to sample the Chinese-Cuban food so we went there after a visit to the Museum of Natural History on a Sunday afternoon. We were starving and ordered the "Lechon" which is roast pork and is served with rice, black beans, cassava and sweet fried bananes. We really enjoyed our meal and found the prices reasonable. The restaurant is quite pleasant and has big windows so it is quite bright. I was also eager to see the Chinese-Cuban waiters who speak Spanish with a Cuban accent. One of them goes around the tables with a water pitcher saying "AGUA" which means water in Spanish and he says it with a strong Cuban accent which is funny but also amazing. This is something you can only see in this restaurant and in Chinatown in Havana. I talked to the old waiters and they were quite nice in fact telling me about the Chinese community in Cuba. Many left after the revolution and came to NYC. I wish we had a restaurant like this in Geneva.
