Asian
The Asian-inspired gastropub and cocktail bar opened its doors in 2014 and was the first to bring Korean barbecue and tiki-themed cocktails to South Beach. Drunken Dragon presents the DIY method of table-side grilling for guests to roast an array of intensely-flavored food over an energetic flame, along with an extensive menu of modern family-style dishes Asian tapas. Nestled into an unassuming strip mall, the exterior is just foreplay for the provocative and well-crafted interior. Upon entering, guests are welcomed with a dim sum cart hostess stand and walls decked out with heavy ropes and provocative photography of Japanese bondage. In 6 years, Drunken Dragon has become one of the favorite restaurants in Miami receiving multiple awards for its convivial Korean cuisine and design elements.

OpenTable reservations are for non-grilling dining tables only. For BBQ grill table requests, please call the restaurant 305-397-8556.

We [13 of us] came to celebrate our daughter’s 18 bday while the accommodations were superb the level of service wasn’t we order the fresh made in-house lemonade at it tasted and smelled bad when we told our server he almost called me a liar by saying he “tasted” it in its fine so even tho none of the kids drank it he left it on our bill second we ordered two bottles of wine and the wine glasses were dirty with lip stick stains we told him he said “yeah it’s really hard to get that off the glass” not I’m sorry … he brought us more glasses and STILL lip stick stains … with the world in a pandemic with airborne illnesses these things should be taken care of and inspected under a microscope not literally but almost, the experience was fantastic the waiter should have know more about the portion sizes and I feel as tho they should have at least acknowledge our daughters birthday we made the reservations and stated we was there for a birthday we had balloons on her chair n no one wished her a happy birthday we spent about 1200 dollars I just expected a little more but I’m sure big parties are a little intimidating for such a small establishment.. all in all we enjoyed cooking for ourselves and the music was great

Visited while staying Miami Beach for friends Birthday. Food was amazing, many different options, the guava bread pudding is the best. Server was a little short and impatient while making selections, but overall a great experience.

Great service, great food. Lobster roll, Bao buns, wings, grilled shrimp and short rib were our favorites! Atmosphere will fit any occasion. Restaurant is designed beautifully! Great vibe! A bit on the pricier side.

My husband and I found Drunken Dragon on a whim, and I’m so glad we did. The ambience was very cozy and chill… music was a little loud for my liking, but was easy to overlook. Our waiter was amazing and so attentive to us! It was also so much fun getting to grill our own food. Such a fun experience and I would go back again and again!

This is not my first time being at drunken dragon per usual the food is amazing the music was really good for a Saturday night but the service has just gone down the hill the bartender's got better and for some reason the servers are not as good, you feel very rushed, you feel also neglected and it's a lot colder. I do wish they went back to their usual friendly service. Will still go back but hoping to get a better server .

The rice is what knocks Drunken Dragon down to only 4.5 stars. There, I had to get that out of the way because otherwise our dinner was perfect!

I'd heard about Drunken Dragon and it's speakeasy vibe - for awhile the entry sign just read "market" - and brought a friend here for her birthday. Surprisingly enough, I got there a little bit ahead, and the hostess was kind enough to hold our reservation until the birthday girl arrived. I sat at the bar and started off with their Seoul Surfer - rum (of course) and a side of Berkshire Pork belly gyoza. Served with a tiki umbrella, flavored with passion fruit, elderflower, lime, hibiscus and a balanced splash of rum my cocktail was perfect as an apertif. The sweet taste of the mixes balanced the spicy gyoza sauce and the pork belly with the right amount of salt & hearty. The noodles had a good texture as well, not falling apart when using chopsticks.

The vibe is classy / romantic with dim lighting, sexy r&b, wood paneling & somewhat erotic art. It is very much a date night or special occasion kind of place.

When my friend arrived, the hostess took us promptly to our table. Our waitress recommended their "Battered Twice Fried Fried Chicken". I skipped the ranch sauce and enhanced my perfectly crispy chicken wings (decently sized!) with their red dragon hot sauce. I even used some of the sauce to try and spice up the chicken fried rice. Our waitress did suggest to try the stone pot rice next time.

Besides the Seoul surfer, I enjoyed a strong, mildly sweet and well flavored rum old fashioned. My friend and I also shared their cold sake.

Since it was her birthday, I mentioned as much on the reservation and she was serenaded & served Mochi ice cream with a candle and all. My favorite one of those was the strawberry.

I have been to the restaurant a few times before, a few years back, and it seems to deteriorate, and it's not as pristine as it used to be. Worn out tables
Our server was very pleasant and responsive and did a very good job. The food came very quickly (seemed rushed). We were completely done with everything and ready to go within 1 hour. So - overall, mixed opinion. With so many options out there, this restaurant is not standing out.

We love this place, have been many times, and are never disappointed. The only drawback this time was that none of us really cared for the pork belly dumplings. Probably just a personal preference, because everything else was out of this world. It's worth a visit just for the D&D rice. Our server was impeccable and never missed a beat. We will keep going back again and again.

Has to wait till I was almost done for my beer to be served to me. Waiters reason was “it was not as cold as he would have liked” . So I finished my food with almost the whole beer. Waiter only asked once if we needed anything half way through the meal which is when he finally was informed that I was still waiting on my drinks. Mushroom order had a very strong lemon taste, overpowering in fact. Rest of the food was good. Restutant was a nice place. Just had issues with the service & the seasoning of the mushrooms. Ruined half the meal.
