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.

Had dinner reservations for my best friend’s birthday and it was fantastic! Tried several things on the menu and every single one was delicious, cocktails included (one of my favorite apps was the Lobster Roll and the Cracked Ribs were falling off the bone)! Will definitely be coming back often!!

We found this spot using reviews on Open Table and Trip Advisor and even though the reviews were glowing, we still were impressed beyond belief. When we pulled up, it was in a strip mall and seemed to look (on the outside) to be a typical Chinese take away place. However, the inside was chic and sophisticated, and the service was impeccable. We got the wagyu gyoza, edamame, twice fried chicken, wagyu steak, and duck fried rice. The wagyu steak was so succulent it melted in our mouths and the duck fried rice was perfect; the duck was crispy and flavorful. The fried chicken was dusted with Korean spices and had a lovely sweet spicy dipping sauce. Everything was amazing, and easily the best dinner we had in Miami.

It was nice in the inside and good was okay but in the out side looks old. I was not use if it was going to be nice in the inside.

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.

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 .
