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 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.

Celebrating my brother’s birthday...wasn’t expecting an 11 year old’s birthday party to be happening...especially at a place that has bondage photos (which I love) on the wall.

The novelty of this menu wore off some time ago. It’s an hip-sell hijack, where the delivery far and falls short of any reasonable expectations. It’s a nice concept so we went back last night - 2 small dishes and $125 later. Meh-minus

In traditional Korean BBQ, there are multiple small dishes to go with the meat. These dishes are key to making lettuce wraps of deliciousness. This restaurant didn't offer anything but the lettuce and the sesame oil. Even al a cart didn't have options, just kimchi, which was amazing. The portions are reasonable, however the meat that we were served was bone in, again not normal and took away from the edible portion. In addition, the grill plate was not changed out after charing began. This is not normal either. This restaurant told me that they were as close to authentic as it gets, but that simply wasn't true. As a reference, I lived in South Korea for 3 years. . .

Very unassuming in a tiny strip mall, but interior is a whole different world. Nice decor, delicious food, great service.

Happy Hour is incredible value. Though the standard menu can get pricey because portions are intentionally small, sharing style, the food is so good and service is always phenomenal. Never had a bad experience at this restaurant and Ryan does a great job managing the team. I could list everything that is delicious but I’ve never had anything bad, so I’ll just say do yourself a favor and start with the crispy bok choy. Pumpkin bread dessert when in season is phenomenal.

We had a reservation for outdoor seating which they did not honor. Furthermore, the outdoor seating is located just in front of the main door where the concept of 2 ft distance was not respected. Finally, they sat me and my girlfriend inside in a very crowded environment that did not respect the maximum 50% capacity and noted that cleaning practices were not thorough enough as per cdc guidelines. We ate and leave as quick as we can.

We told the waiter my brother is allergic to nuts. When they brought a cake for his birthday we asked before he took a bite if it had peanuts and they said no! When his lip started swelling they still denied it had peanuts but went to get Benedryl. It was only after he had the Benadryl that they confessed the cake had macadamia.

The water girl not once changed her gloves. She wiped the tables, the seats, grabbed all the napkins and then grabbed the water jug—all with the same pair of gloves on

Big Fan of Drunken Since I move to Miami 6 years ago, I was happy that they reopen after the devastating covd19 shutdown. I made a reservation and we were only seated after an hour an half. I understand with the covid19 situation everyone is trying to work around the best way. But, if a reservation is indeed accepted and confirmed, I'm expecting that for any restaurant to be prepared for the dinner shift. Will be back once everything get a bit more back to normal.

The food was very fair for the price which was expensive for four people. Service Ok. The bbq you have to cook on your own was very difficult as the cooking area was not hot enough even for the steak. The shrimp took a long time to cook and it never cooked through. The tuna pizza was on a thin slice of bread, tuna slices and greens tossed over it. The winners were the fries, mushroom buns, ad the deserts which were outstanding. The drinks were good.

We came at 8:30pm sharp and we had a reservation for that time. The blond hostess told us to wait at the bar. When I asked for how long she told me she didn’t know. That we had people ahead of us. When I asked about reservations, she turned to the manager who told us it was 30 seconds. He split a table for 4 and created room for our reservation. When we got to our table I noted it was very close to another couples table. Wanting some privacy we asked for the table that was a little further. She told us the table was reserved and when I ask how could that be, having noted that the manager split the table maybe 5 min earlier, she told us wnjoy your evening and left!!!! After that it all went downhill, the waitress spilled the dressing of our Bok Choy all over the table, service was mediocre at best. Overall, if you are looking for good food and dining experience, DONT GO THERE. Not even worth it even if it is complimentary.

That is the problem with Miami, bad food, bad attitude, bad service at New York Prices with 20% included so they don’t give a damn.

They deserve to go Broke and Close.
