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 do-it-yourself 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. Non-traditional plates are influenced from all over Asia – from Thailand, Japan to Vietnam – and are lovingly prepared to satisfy a variety of palates. 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.

The Drunken Dragon proved to be a very interest and delightful experience. The interior dinning area was very much in line with the theme of the restaurant and the food was excellent.

Love this place! 2nd time eating here and still great. I just love the different foods and drinks they have. I like to eat different and unusual things and that is this place! Took the kids this time which I was hesitant about but they ate the steak and loved it! Cooked to perfection. We went during the ox tail menu, which is why I went! Had everything ox tail related.. delicious. And that green tea dessert is amazing!!

The manager was kind enough to allow us Happy Hour priced drinks while sitting at the grill. I appreciated her and the rest of the wait staff on their very thorough service throughout the remainder of my dinner. I appreciate it.

The ambience is great; however, we were shocked when they tried to seat us at a table that was only 6 inches away from the next table. No social distancing! The food was great, but our “share” items weren’t big enough to share and all the sides took really long to come out and eventually came to the table after we had already finished the main dishes. Loved the music playing!

Very pleasant surprise. Great food great service until the bar continued to ruin the Seoul Surfer. Ruined the meal. Bartender wouldn’t fix the drink and just kept adding juice. Didn’t know was watching from the table. Very sad they wouldn’t make the drink proper.

It is a nice little casual place but nothing to brag about. Have been few times before and felt a little run down this time around. Food is hit and miss. Some items super delicious (beef tenderloin and Shanghai fried rice and pork belly dumplings but the rest kind of disappointing specially korean fried chicken and kimchi which you would expect to be spot on at a korean bbq place. Service was great and thats rare in Miami. Overall an ok experience.

Loved it. We are from St. Louis and DD was recommended by a friend who had been. Don’t let the exterior fool you. Exquisite. Food, ambiance, service. Great. Never had Korean BBQ before and now I don’t want any other BBQ, ever. Lamb confit was incredible.

Food was tasty but portions are quite small for the price. Ordered 2 entrees for myself which just barely filled me up. The service was lacking too. Server never checked on us once food arrived.

Overall good experience, however I’ve been to place where food pricing is $$$$ and the quality of the food is 100% much better. Tuna used on raw dishes should be fresh daily and PINK not a off pinkish color like the one put on our table. Pork buns weren’t all that, I’ve had top quality pork buns for less of the price and better presentation. Food should be able to come in through vision and smell and then taste. If food doesn’t look good I’m
Not eating it.

This place is OVERRATED & OVERPRICED.

Ok first of all. I'm actually Korean so when I found out the 3 owners were Puerto Rican, Columbia, and India, I was surprised.

Next, the price is ridiculous. The food is not authentic and the portions are a JOKE.

Drinks are good, I'll give them that.

Overall, poor experience. It was my girlfriends birthday too, what a shame.

I came to drunken dragon while on vacation. The restaurant is beautiful but definitely not a place I would go to if expecting Korean BBQ. No traditional sides are available and the food is over priced. I ordered a $38.00 12 oz. rib eye steak medium. The chef cooks it medium well. I had it returned only for it to come back raw. No one was attentive to my disappointment. I returned the steak and wanted nothing else to do with the food. 18% gratuity was added for staff that didn't make sure my food was taken care of. The vegetables at about $17 from the grill was to charred and did not taste good. The rice for $14 wasn't anything to brag about. $60 for a meal that was tasteless and uninspiring. I was embarrassed I even took my husband. We left hungry and had pay to eat food at our hotel for the night.

The food was good but it was very overpriced. I thought I ordered one thing but got another. My husband and I was visiting and we literally waited for 2 1/2 before we were seated and it seemed like everyone who pulled up in a nice car or knew the host was seated. The hostess was awesome and the guy who ran the restaurant was not friendly to us non local patrons.
