Rumba has Caribbean and Latin American flavors that you just can't find anywhere else in the 'Du, or in all likelihood the entirety of western China. Some dishes are more authentic than others, but they're all good and typically in large portions. A few favorites are the bacon-wrapped dates, the Cuban sandwich, the garlic shrimp, and the piri piri fish. Don't miss the homemade sauces that come with everything; they are awesome! Also the churros (churritos, really, but who cares? You can find them here!) with chocolate sauce are super yummy. The cocktails aren't bad, but a bit pricey, and I'm not a fan of the crushed ice they use which always gets stuck in my straw--and there's a bit too much of it too. Still, it's nice to find a mojito with real sugarcane in it outside of Cuba/south Florida. ;)
The music is also good, including the DJ and Cuban singer who perform nights. They could change up the playlist on the sound system more though as there is no end to good Latin music out there!
Inside the decor is bright, but relaxed, and comfortable and not overdone.
Chris, the manager, is a super nice guy who works hard to make sure his customers are happy. One time he let me and my friends in to celebrate my best friend's birthday, even though he had a private party in the main dining room. Thanks, Chris!
They seem to be working more on parties lately, which is ok, but I hope they continue to have some laidback nights when it's good to get together with friends.
All in all, a great place for dinner first and foremost, but from time to time it's good to stay for a cocktail and some music.
