which would you choose based on food,decor, crowd and overall experience? Don't say neither as I'm eating at one or the other tonight. Thanks.

    Are you in Asia, Cuba or perhaps even somewhere in Florida?

      They're in (or will be in) Miami Beach, as both places are in South Beach - but I haven't been to either and so can't make a recommendation. Based solely on perception and hearsay, I'd go to Asia de Cuba before I'd go to Mr. Chow. Mr. Chow seems to be high-priced, pedestrian Chinese; you perhaps stand a better chance of finding something interesting to eat at Asia de Cuba. Both are scene-y places.

        Agree with Frod. Have been to Asia, but haven't been to Mr. Chow. Too much bad word of mouth on Mr. Chow and they have only been open 3-4 months and have found Asia to be decent. Not a foodie experience, but great setting and atmosphere, went on a weekday as weekend can be a scene, but you might be looking for that.
