I saw recently the good comments about this restaurant so i decided to visit. Except the chicken screwers all the other food we order was just so so as taste. Nothing special at all. The prices are expensive for what you get plus they charge extra service fee. Service just normal nothing reminds you are at a 5 stars hotel.... More

Never too confident when choosing to eat in the hotel. This time I was pleasantly surprised. Following a warm welcome and excellent service from the staff, I ordered a mojito cocktail, which was beautifully prepared, I then concentrated on choosing from the extensive menu. I chose the sea food plata followed by Asian salad and rib eye steak with side... More

If you like Tapas, man, go for this place. Cool atmosphere, nice music and great servers. You can also ask for the kind of music you want to hear and get into a pub-like zone. Head bangers' have a ball.

I must admit to being put off when I walked into the bar and looked at the drinks price list. It seemed off the planet plus 16% VAT, GST or whatever tax you want. This took my bottle (330ml) of Guinness from 65RMB to 75.5RMB which in my language (Aussie) is $19! A rip by any concession you want to... More

Visited QBA a total of 3 visits since opening. Sadly this visit on a Friday night left us wondering what exactly has happened ??? I'll keep this simple....The Executive chef has left the building and seemingly taken the QBA spirit and food quality with him. Appetizers poorly prepared and slow delivery. Entrees were sent back to the kitchen missing key... More

Staff was friendly and even took the time to recommend some dishes. It was very pricey but given how difficult it is to find Latin food (aside from Mexican) in China I was eager to spend that much to taste something filled with adobo and basil. Unfortunately the dishes were all American (southwestern at best) or Asian. I imagine they... More
