No Name Chinese
PABLO ZITZMANN’S CUISINE HIGHLIGHTS CHINESE FLAVORS AND TECHNIQUES IN A SETTING WHERE SEASONALITY PLAYS A PIVOTAL ROLE IN THE MENU, AND HIS AFFINITY AND PASSION FOR JAPANESE, THAI AND VIETNAMESE FOOD BLEND TOGETHER FORMING A FUN, CREATIVE FARE WITH GREAT WINE AND IMPECCABLE SERVICE.
NO NAME CHINESE IS THE RESULT OF THE COLORFUL DIVERSITY OF MIAMI, WHERE CULTURES BLEND IN UNUSUAL WAYS. IT TELLS THE STORY OF A CONSTANTLY EVOLVING RESTAURANT WITH AN INCREDIBLE BLEND OF FLAVORS AND #DOPECHINESEFOOD THAT CAN’T FIT ON A LABEL- THEREFORE WE HAVE NO NAME.
My wife and I went for Valentine’s Day dinner and the price fix menu was amazing. Each dish was creative, beautiful and delicious.
Sadly Miami has an iffy reputation for bad service, and this restaurant is the flagship for that reputation. We were astounded by the behavior of the staff. We were seated promptly by the hostess, however the bartender came to our table and basically accused us of seating ourselves because she did not see the hostess seat us. Our 3rd guest was only staying for wine, so she was asked to go order at the bar rather than being served with us by the server. The food was horrifically over salted and not even regional food (Idaho trout in Florida?) the bok choy full of sand, not washed. My guest did not finish her meal but did request a box and we were then told the food was thrown away and we would have to wait for 30 min for a replacement. The manager was young, very inexperienced and poster child for Miami rude service. We waited so long to finally try this spot. We promptly left, and ate and continued cocktails at Town where we were told that everyone says that about No Name. Best they keep no name.
The bar tender / manager working Sunday night was amazing. Her knowledge of the food and drinks was amazing. She had also not been feeling great and I could never tell because she was so up beat and positive. She is certainly an asset to the restaurant.
Over sauced appetizer was too hot to eat. Bun was raw dough. Kung Pao chicken tasted only of soy sauce. Fried rice was mushy. Too expensive w/ very limited menu.
Poor service. Restaurant was understaffed. It was loud and food was good but nothing special. Also, made a mistake on our order.
This was our fourth visit and, as always, the food and service was amazing! Unfortunately, this time we had to sit outside which wasn’t too bad considering we are having phenomenal weather rn but you did feel a bit banished bc there was no form of decorations outside. Candles on the tables, string lights and tall plants in planters to separate you from the street is all that’s needed. All in all, can’t wait for next visit!
This was our second time attending No Name Chinese. We enjoyed the food very much on our first visit and were very excited to go back. This time around the experience was very disappointing. The food was mediocre and the dishes were off. We visited on a Friday night and the place was half full.
Unfortunately, we will not be returning.
We got the Chinese New Year set menu and it was delicious! However we were told that the sizes were individual sized but they definitely could have been shared. We took more than half of our meals home! Also service was a little slow but the food and drinks were really delicious. Would recommend and will definitely be going back.
Great service and ambiance even for a larger party especially given the price point. Will definitely be back
Everything was tasty. Not traditional Chinese food but very good all around.
The place is much to noisy. Loud music, tables too close together, extremely mediocre food, and unkempt waiter.
We do not plan to return.
Our first dinner here. The food was excellent and the ambiance and service was as well. My only reason for not giving five stars is I hold that for a really exceptional fine dining experience. We will come back for sure. The food was not full of msg nor gravy. It was fresh and offerings included vegetarian , spicy or non spicy, beef, dish etc.
The food is excelent, service A+++
Nice place .the food is realy good taste
We really liked Noname Chinese. My only criticism is the limited menu, but believe me, every choice is delicious. We will definitely return. We sat outside which is pleasant because it's on a side street and quiet enough. Happy we made those rez outside because the inside is very loud which can be fun but not for us. The wine was great (I always ask for a taste which was accommodated) and great selection of drinks etc. My husband had the shrimp dish, spicy and shrimp was cooked perfectly. I had the Tsao's chicken, which might be boring but we never eat Chinese food so I chose that. The eggplant appetizer was fantastic, sweet and tangy and a touch of spice, flash fried eggplant. Nice!!!
The food was amazing and the service was impeccable! Want to go back ASAP!!
Food and service was great! Will be going there again.
Food was outstanding. Best Chinese food in Miami. Service is always on point
Food was average. Service was average too. Didn’t enjoy it nearly as much as prior times. Will give it another shot. Maybe they were having an off night.
The food took forever to arrive, all four main dishes arrived at different times and by the time the last fish was served two people at the table had already finished with their meal. We were also overcharged for the wine.
Awesome experience as usual. Perfect for sharing food family style with friends. From the appetizers to dessert feel free to order anything on the menu because it’s all good. The service is always top notch. Great place for casual gourmet Chinese food.
Pretentious. Limited menu and everything has similar ingredients and flavor profile. And very overpriced for such small portions and below average experience.
The service left much to be desired
Great as always
Food was salty and drenched in salty sauce. The outdoor seating was awkward and poorly done.
Dumplings were good. They were out of the S&P shrimp that I wanted so got the fish. Sauce was overwhelming so it was not very good. Drinks were good but the tables are too close together. It was more casual than I expected and I did not like the music selection.
Best Bao Buns in Miami. Excellent non-traditional Chinese
This place is the bees knees in Chinese. We’ve been many times and it gets better each time.
While the food was very tasty, the experience was not very good. We ordered three dishes but received only two. After waiting about 15 minutes for the third dish, we inquired and were told it was unavailable (nobody told us until we asked). We then ordered another dish instead. After the meal, we requested to package our leftovers, only to be told they accidentally threw it out. When we went to pay for the bill, they forgot to remove the dish we never received. The whole lunch took almost two hours, and it seemed like nobody knew what was going on.
Very good but ecpensive
Delicious dinner. Great service. It was my cousins’s birthday. The Mongolian beef was excellent. Eggplant appetizer was really good too. Nice white wines.
Had a lovely time. Staff was fabulous. Food was outrageous.
Food was incredible! Manager at the front was fantastic - our server however lacked personality and thoroughness.
The food and service were very good. It is too noisy for my taste. Cut out the music, it just adds to the noise. I will go back for the food but would have lingered longer and had more wine if it had not been so noisy.
We were disappointed in the set up of the restaurant. Being in the front table where people are coming and going was distracting. Service was just ok.
The restaurant is new and super hip. All the staff was very friendly.
When I booked the reservation- I asked for the bar because my husband and I usually prefer it. When we were seated we found that the bar seats were really low compared to the bar- so off the bat kind of uncomfortable to sit there. It was Friday so understandable that they could not accommodate us at a regular table.
The food: our favorite was definitely the bao buns with pork. They were delicious and came out piping hot. We also ordered the turnip cakes- which had a really great flavor- definitely an interesting item.
As for the beef and broccoli, shrimp dumplings and chao fan (fried rice) they were ok, good flavor but not the best I’ve ever had. Prices are a bit much but then again, this is Miami and any trendy spot is going to have higher prices.
Recommend for date night or girls night out!
Our second time there and we will be back. AMAZING food and service.
Again a wonderful dinner, never disappoints.
I love this restaurant. The food is always great. For lunch we did not have wine - but I love the wine selections for dinner. I highly recommend No Name Chinese!
Great food, awesome service. Will return
Wow!!! We’ll be back!
