 (Miami)·Dined on January 7, 2018

Fantastic "hidden" gem. Really loved all the food choices. Fries, Tenderloin, mushroom, chicken, udon noodle and chicken, and amsterdam dessert and chocolate cake jar was delicious. Only gripe was that we ordered fries at the bar and 5 seconds later got seated and we asked to transfer the drink and fries over to the table. Fries never ended up coming until informing 3 different people working there. Little discombobulated but food was 5 star. Cool spot to surprise someone with because of the unsuspecting outside.

The barbecue beef tenderloin was exceptional. I’m so glad we got the plain one instead of the one that is marinated in onions. The quality of the beef was wonderful. We loved the variety of the food with the tapas style but it’s really expensive in the end. I also really enjoyed the green papaya salad. I couldn’t tell where the green papaya was but it tasted really good. This is a classic case of a restaurant that you cannot tell the quality of from the outside. Or you can’t judge a book by its cover...

We are visiting from Michigan and a friend told us to try them out. We almost couldn’t find it but when we got our food we were pleasantly surprised. Everything was fantastic! Highly recommend the kale salad.

I was a party of one and Drunken Dragon overbooked and could not seat me on time. I ate in the smokers area and the ambiance was terrible. My reservation was for 8:15 and after 8:50, I was starving. I asked if I could order an appetizer at one of the open table set for a large party. They declined. The bar was not an option so the hostess offered the outside smokers area. I was "hangry" so I agreed to it. The smokers area was not intended for dining...When I approached the staff about the situation, the hostess blamed the other guests and the waiter blamed OpenTable. I may return, but only if I have a party of 4 or more.

Great place and great food ! But i dont understand why you cant reserve a grill table, and why there are not more grill tables. So no matter if you have a reservation or not, if you want a grill table you still have to wait, and for the 3rd time, the logístics and coordination is pretty poor. Shame cause its a great place !

Food was excellent, unfortunately, the food was thrown at us un the table with no order and no explanations...the noodles came before the appetizers and the steak knives came when we were done with the bbq...very disappointing because it had started very well at the bar with the drinks...

Drive from the gulf side to dine in Miami Beach on Christmas Day. Such a fun place. Service is attentive and friendly. Highly recommend the Korean bbq tables. Cuts of meat were excellent. Mochi so fresh and good. Bok choy appetizer very good- we ordered a second! Exterior is mysterious, which adds to the fun. Will be back!

The venue is quite hidden, so having our UBER driver (as we were from out of town) was quite helpful. It is located in an unassuming strip mall. Once inside you find a hidden gem with a cool vibe and awesome music. Our server Kevin was incredible!!! He was knowledgeable, professional, personable and charming! The food was amazing with so many interesting menu items! Loved Drunken Dragon!!!

Lets start wirh PARKING!!!! Trying to fund parking is ridiculous and the valet price is steep for a self park valet service. The service is ok, multiple people served my table so i hardly spoke to my actual server. The food was good as well as the drinks. Only problem i had was that the resturaunt felt the need to add a 18% gratuity to bill for only two people.

Nothing about this restaurant was too good. Food was mediocre, service wasn't good at all and tuna sushi pizza was terrible, old tuna, had to send it back. They rushed everything out at once. Certain parts of menu are only available at certain tables but they do not tell you that when making reservation. Would not recommend

The food is very good and the service was good as well. However, the price point is very very high. A bowl of rice and egg $20? 5 slices of steak for $20? It is just not a good value for the money.

My girlfriend and I went when we were in town on vacation and on a Friday night they accommodated us being late.
To keep things short, it was actually the best dinner date I have had in my life.
Highlights: Sake was amazing. Bok Choy was incredible, and the short rib was also incredibles. Finished the night with 2 wonderful cortaditos!

I came here with my husband after a two-week business trip to treat ourselves. The atmosphere is upbeat, energetic, and intimate. Starting from the inconspicuous front entrance, the restaurant puts its cards on the table for the experience you are getting into. The menu offers many options, from an array of vegetable dishes to succulent meats - you can eat as much or as lightly as you want, which was great for us as my husband is vegetarian. The extensive sake menu runs the gamut as well, and rounds out the full bar offer. I find it a bit pricey for regular date nights, but a great option for special occasions if you want a fun atmosphere and delicious, unique food.

It's truly a hidden gem. Our first time there I couldn't find it behind a non presupposing facade and no drunken dragon sign. It's a strip center and its entrance is under a a sign that reads MARKET. The food is sensational. Their fried chicken, although not Korean BBQ, is fantastic. Everything from Edamame to their BFR is worth eating. Highly recommended.

Love Drunken Dragon, but it’s lost a little of the magic. Crowd has definitely gotten less sexy as has the buzz/ambience. Food is always delicious and if you want to eat this is the place! Popcorn, edamame, bolgogi, etc. Bon appetite!
