About

No Name Chinese serves contemporary Chinese cuisine, Dim Sum and weird wines using locally sourced ingredients in an upscale, modern space in South Miami.

The idea started with a group of friends and business partners dissatisfied with the state of Chinese food in Miami. Partnering with Chef Pablo Zitzmann and the duo behind Coral Gables wine bar Uvaggio, they took traditional Chinese dishes and flavors, put a cleaner spin on them using South Florida's natural produce, and paired it all with great wine, craft beer and high end service.

The atmosphere and service were great. Our food choices were delicious. My only note for improvement was the time of delivery between our entrees. Even though the waiter told us that the food would come out as it was ready, the time between the chicken and the ribeye was 30 minutes.

I would recommend this restaurant for everyone. Even if you are on a budget, you can share dishes. We had a great evening.

Had high expectations after reading the reviews. The ingredients sounded great but the food was way too salty. So much so that we could not eat it. Sad because I really liked the vibe and menu. Sorry.

The service at this restaurant is stellar. Everyone is made to feel appreciated. On my first two visits there, the food was excellent. But on this last visit, 2 of the 5 dishes we ordered were overly salty or too seasoned. The first inedible dish was the “Mouthwatering Mushrooms,” which were floating in a sauce that overwhelmed the mushrooms. The “Beef and Boccoli” was also too salty and had a funny taste to it. I had that dish previously and it was great. Whomever is in in kitchen now is too over-zealous with the salt or seasoning.

The food was overall good not great. We specifically asked for no spice and the fried rice and short ribs were spicy. I found the meal was not flavorful.

Amazing! Seriously, the whole experience at No Name is terrific. I love everything about the restaurant from the moment I walk into the door until I leave. The food is spectacular, wine list outstanding and service is super friendly and helpful but not over the top. I try to spread out my visits because I want to savor and enjoy the experience each time. One of the best in Miami.

The staff at No Name Chinese does a wonderful job accomodating special requests and guiding you through the menu options. They are attentive and seem to be genuine fans of the kitchen's creations.

We ordered the crispy turnip cakes with thin sliced Chinese sausage and sweetened soy sauce reduction. This is a well composed dish and hits all your favorite flavor profiles - sweet, salty, savory, and rich. Kudos to the chef.

Try the Yunnan market fish served in a ginger soy sauce with seasonal vegetables and Chinese greens. Delicious. The sauce makes the dish.

As soon as we walked in, we were greeted by a friendly maitre'd. Our waiter was knowledgeable, polite, and efficient. The food was amazing. I am not a fan of Chinese food, but the flavors in the three dishes we ordered were like nothing I had ever tried. Again, the service was top-notch! My only regret that the meal was a bit pricey, but we know we will be back for more.

You can order without looking into the menu. Just point a finger and place it. No matter what it is is good.
If you have doubts, ask the waiter or waitress the really know what they serve and do it with a passion.
I have gone twice and more to come.
Five stars for the food is an understatement.
I only wish the place was less noisy and roomier. Well, nobody is perfect.

Seated when we arrived in the back room against the wall. Server was professional and informative. Food was delicious and those Angry Dumplings even at “ level 1 heat” (don’t say “mild”!) were serious fire! Would love to see more dishes on the menu.

Went with high expectations given all the buzz around the place. Wasn’t impressed. Found the food bland. Nothing stood out except for one of the appetizers. The manager noticed we had left all of our food and without us saying anything he very kindly offered to not charge us for the items, but then came back and said since we had already paid there was nothing he could do.

Having read most of the reviews of this new modern approach Chinese restaurant, I was intrigued to try it. I originally booked for my entire family but my kids decided they didn’t want to drive over 160 miles round trip to try out a new restaurant. They should have made the trip. My wife and I ordered most of the appetizers (gluten free virtually everything available) which were great. Probably too long to list, but the most memorable were eggplant appetizer, turnip cake that literally shakes as served, beef with broccolini, salt & pepper shrimp, best shishito peppers ever, way better than Nobu, it was a great meal. Our server was very helpful and charming, she totally understood gluten free, which usually inhibits my wife’s choices due to lack of choice, or worse, lack of the servers understanding how dangerous gluten allergy can be. Will be back very soon, highly recommended.

First off I made a reservation to take my mom here for mother’s day. This place is small and sat close to another couple which kind of took away from the privacy, but that was to be expected with such a small restaurant even judging by the photos. I chose the place for the occasion, and the noise level was moderate and didn’t feel overly rushed. Mom and I order the Char Siu Bao (bbq pork buns) which were steaming hot, soft and fresh. The table came with soy sauce and some other additive that we did not know nor did the waitress explain (it’s cool wasn’t a biggy) so we used the soy sauce as a dressing because by itself it hardly had any taste. We next went for the beef and broccoli, and family sized Veggie Cho fan (vegetable rice with crab meat), and it was real crab meat, we verified and tasted it. Also added protein choice consists of crab, shrimp or chicken for an additional charge. I highly recommend this selection, I underestimated the portions of the beef and broccoli for two people and also added on the Duck “A la Hoisin.” The duck was served medium well and had a nice crispy outer layer. It was good but wasn’t something we would die to have again. My mom wasn’t feeling it for the duck it self-required the additives it came with to make it flavorful (which we didn't care for) rather than being flavored on its own. I thought it was good but was like my mom it wasn't hitting my top 10 in the flavorful category. The service I have to say though was marvelous, polite, kind, attentive and very communicative. The type of service I want all restaurants to model after. I was so impressed with the service that it was refreshing. The waitress informed us that the menu selection does change from time to time, but I think for another quite occasion would highly consider coming back again.

This is an excellent addition to the local restaurant scene
superior unique dishes with high-quality ingredients and delicious sauces.
Friendly Waiters well-informed about the choices and very attentive.
Elegant decor, lovely ambiance, although not conducive to private conversation.
Parking available behind the building in spots marked “employees only.”
Reservations recommended. Limited dinner selections however more diverse lunch choices and Sunday brunch too.
