    Food is surprisingly delicious and drinks are quite tasty as well. It can get quite loud, so it may not be the best option for date night

    The portions are extravagant. The food's not great but if you're stuck in Times Square you could do much worse than Havana Central.

    Mango Salmon was good but it was the Shrimp Mofongo that took me back to Puerto Rico. Go for HH & order a sangria but expect a large loud crowd of people at the bar.
