Truly a magical find! A hidden gem as you first are taken by the unconventional exterior into dimly light cozy and warm ambiance. The decor set the stage for a delicious culinary experience. From the gracious welcome by the hostess to the sweet bartender whom provided her expertise on signature cocktails, Off the wagon bourben hit the spot twice!
As a party of five, we patiently had to wait a little longer for our BBQ table as the staff were very attentive and friendly throughout the time prior to seating us. (know i know Why the other party didn’t want to leave!! haha)

Now food- we opted to BBQ our proteins from the Beef tenderloin, Pork Belly, down to the shrimp everything was masterfully seasoned and prepped for our interactive dinner! A MUST have is their Crab fried rice... I assure you this was the talk of the table!! The truffle fries were delicious as well.

Be sure to make reservations and go in with an opened mind and a larger appiete!

Drunken Dragon is in a nondescript strip mall next to a Dominos Pizza and Subway. Once inside you realize you're in one of the hippest restaurants in South Beach, with an excellent, creative Korean menu. Great music and drinks - maybe not a place for quiet conversation - worth the visit if you're interested in experimental cuisine.

It was a recommendation from one of our friends and it absolutely blew our minds... from the outside it doesn’t look like anything but once you step inside you are immediately transported somewhere else... it was such a fun experience and the food was some of the best I’ve ever tasted... hats off! You guys killed it!

This was the second time we visited this restaurant because of the creative, tasty, original food, and the ambiance. Unfortunately, both time there was an error in our check to the favor of the restaurant. The first time we took it as an honest mistake; but the second time made us wonder if this is a usual practice by the restaurant, or by its manager, or by a dishonest waiter. They attempted to charge for an extra bottle of wine. I hope they be careful about this or they may ruin what otherwise could be great place.

It was an expensive fast food experience. Literally took 30 mins from order to food arrival to eat time. Felt so rushed it was not a fine dining experience.

The look and ambiance are good although it is quite loud if you want to have a good conversation; would be better to sit next to your date and get close versus sitting across, which was the only choice we had given the 2 person table. The food and service were pretty good; I may have been expecting a bit more considering all the hype I’ve heard, but I was far from disappointed with anything.

Papaya salad was too sweet and too much hot pepper, almost impossible to eat. No soba or veggie broth for noodles from specials.
Grilled veggies were ok.
Tres leches was more like a sunday, 70% ice cream.

We always like to go to Drunken Dragon to celebrate special occasions or to bring visiting clients. This last visit we were celebrating our son's birthday and requested "something special" when we made the reservation. And they arranged a special birthday desert for him. Service is always excellent. Food is always great. This time though two items they had on the desert menu were not available. Otherwise, food, drinks and ambiance is always great.

i can't speak for dinner as I've only taken advantage of their happy hour specials, but I have consistently had a delightful time at Drunken Dragon. Don't let its unassuming exterior next to Subway fool you; it's a great place to bring friends and out of towners. Their Asian fusion cuisine and hand-crafted cocktails are sublime!

We thoroughly enjoyed the food experience at Drunken Dragon. The menu items were inventive and fun, and the tapas-style presentation worked. We liked the atmosphere and the ambiance overall as well. My only issue came with the actual pricing for what we received. We spent an inordinate amount of money for a meal that didn't fully satiate anyone at the table. For nearly $100/person I would expect to leave stuffed... yet we just stopped ordering food because it was far too expensive to continue to do so. I'd recommend Drunken Dragon, but I'd also warn anyone planning to go that they will likely leave feeling happy with the food and experience, but upset over the lack of perceived value (given the super high prices for what you get).

We headed to the International Car show and decided to have dinner at Drunken Dragon. On Thursday night it was early and quiet at the restaurant, which made it very nice. We ordered a bunch of different plates to share among our foodie group. We started with popcorn which was yummy! Other items included the pork shoulder which was just terrific. The uodon noodles with shrimp and the rice bowl were both great. Grilling at the table was fun. The short rib and other items were perfect. A lovely evening with delicious food.

We had a reservation at 8:45, arrived 8:40 into the place, but they didn't get us the table until 9:40, only because we complained 4 times to 3 different people. Bad planning on reservations, no respect to OpenTable reservations because we saw people coming in an being sit during our wait. And we had to pay, plus service, all drinks we got during the wait.

They gave us a table with a grill, but once seated they told us it didn't work and we could not order the grill options.

Food was overall good, service from the puerto rico blond attendant was nice and friendly, but IMHO prices where a bit expensive.

Not much to bbq, but food was delicious. Needed to purchase a lot of the dishes to make a complete meal. Not traditional Korean bbq, but I would still recommend. The owner and server, and support staff were fabulous. The food was fresh, and tasty. The mai Tai was fantastic.
