We had fried yuca, ropa vieja and a cubano with the most scrumptuous sauces. Wonderful food! I would love to go back again and try something different.

I am working in Midtown for years and visiting this place for lunch from time to time. It is busy one and for the reason - great choice of inexpensive Cuban food. I cannot say how authentic the food is, but it is definitely tasty. You have a choice of either take out or eat inside, but the place is... More

Ok, I am Cuban and also a world class traveler. I must tell all of you something: in NYC you have NO Cuban food restaurant. No one is true Cuban food. They are Mexicans looking like a raw simplified version of Cuba. This in particular has a problem added, the quality of food is absolutely bad. The food is cooked... More

Love the food for the price. My favorites are the Cuban sandwich and the roast pork served with beans and rice.

We ordered food to be delivered from Tina's for us and friends based on a recommendation. It arrived fresh and hot sooner than expected, very reasonably priced. The dinner was delicious, spiced to perfection. We were delighted.

This is not a fancy place at all even though it has a dining room in back. It's the equivalent of an Italian Focacceria where there are several hot buffet style foods and also a Cuban sandwich station. Great service and food. A hidden gem

This place was awesome. It's very small but don't like the size fool you. You can order, either, to go, or sit down table. They have daily specials that are scrumptious and filling. Portions are good size. I had the Cuban Sandwich which was so good. The side of "maduros" plantains was more than enough for two people They have... More

Great "hole in the wall" restaurant near Trump Tower. A wide variety of Cuban dishes, where I stuck with the Cubano and lemonade.

Huge portions for quite cheap prices. Get the green sauce and empanadas (with whatever you choose for your main meal). So so good.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
