I brought my girlfriend’s parents to eat, because I heard so many great recommendations from friends and coworkers. Absolutely amazing experience that we all had. A beautiful restaurant with great music and lighting. The music was upbeat and volume perfect. I never needed pull out my flashlight so I can read the menu or to see the food (something that I have come to despise immensely). The service was outstanding from beginning to end, our server was Nicole. She was knowledgeable, helpful and very kind. We never felt rushed (even though we ended up being one of the last tables). The food was exceptional, everything was well seasoned and flavorful. Must haves are the turnip cake, char sui bao, yusheng, smashed cucumber, duck, and the pineapple dessert. Although everything we had was excellent, even my very particular in-laws loved it. The value was perfect, you can taste the quality of the ingredients and see the skill in the preparation. I live in Ft. Lauderdale and I don’t mind driving 45 minutes because there few places that are this good.

We had been looking forward to eating at no name Chinese for a while. We had heard great things about it and since it’s in our local neighborhood we were hoping to have a place to frequent often. Unfortunately, our experience was not what we were hoping for. I will start off with the most positive thing which was that we were able to sit at the bar Which turned out to be the best part of the evening because we got to watch the chefs cook and prepare the food. The drinks that we had which were sake martinis were also very good. Each dish that we ordered was disappointing to say the least. We ordered the shrimp dumplings and the spicy chicken dumplings. The shrimp dumplings tasted very shrimpy and not as though the food was fresh. I think they were five or six on the plate and between me and my husband we could only eat one. The spicy chicken dumplings were way too hot. We like spicy but these were spicy to the point of not being pleasant. Because of the heat there also was not any other flavor that you could taste. Very one-dimensional. We ordered a salad with tomatoes and some sort of mozzarella cheese which was overall good. We ordered a ribeye that was sautéed in some sort of soy/Chinese sauce. This dish was $58 and was not worth it. The ribeye had so much fat on it that the servers had to bring us Utensils and stead of chopsticks to eat it. This was a bone in ribeye that in and of itself should’ve tasted fine. The ribeye seem to have no flavor and less you dipped it into the sauce. Our final dish of the night was a dessert that we ordered. Although it looked good it also was very disappointing. Very bland with again not any distinguishable flavors. Unfortunately even though this is in our Neighborhood we won’t be going back again. I also wrote An email to the management describing my experience and I haven’t received any reply as of yet. Again disappointing.

This is a hidden gem. Loved the food, the wine and the ambiance. Service was very good. That being said there were a couple of hiccups- one of the items we ordered was not served . We brought this to attention of our server and were assured it was removed from our check. When we got the check the plate was still on the there and they had also charged us for 2 - $100 bottles of wine, we had only consumed 1 and a different bottle which was included. This shouldn’t happen. Glad we checked our bill.

We love the place and decided this time to splurge with the tasting menu. We enjoyed after a chef-chosen selection of delicious dishes that we would otherwise probably not have tried well described by the staff. Great sharing portions.
Excellent and attentive service.

Unique, tasty food. Overall enjoyed the food experience, however the servers are a bit hovering and hardly let us complete our course before whisking it away. Even had to ask them to wait so we could finish what was left on the plate... and this was on a weekday when not all the tables were full and no one was waiting to be seated.

Finally was able to get a reservation here and had dinner recently. I was not disappointed. Decor is clean, bright and sophisticated. Service was superb. Food was excellent with many fresh, local ingredients, a great local craft beer menu and an eclectic wine selection. Who could ask for anything more. They are unobtrusive (2 blocks south of Sunset, one block west of Red Road/57th) and don't have a sign out front. About a dozen tables inside and seating around the open kitchen. Food is Chinese inspired and there are traditional favorites but the starters and their own take as well. Angry dumplings (fairly spicy so beware) are great as is the turnip cake with amazing toppings. The wagyu stuffed steamed Char Siu Bao buns were great. Duck was very good as was the Kung Pao chicken. Chicken was the hit of the night as it was very subtley nuanced with various layered tastes. All the food comes out "family style" and meant to share. Didn't have room for dessert but will be back. Only open for lunch a few days a week. Parking is on the street (pay for parking after 6 pm) or a few spaces behind the restaurant.

We came in to celebrate one of our birthdays. We were lucky enough to get the greatest waitress who walked us through a truly fun dining experience. She had the best recommendations and was very helpful pairing wines with food. Completely different from your usual Chinese restaurant experience. But I have to say the whole staff seemed to be trained really well as the quality of service we received was outstanding. And it was a Saturday night. 8/18

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.

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.

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.
