Literally the best Asian food in south Florida.
Extremely high quality food at very reasonable prices. If this was in nyc it would easily command 5 times higher prices and there’d be a line around the block

Outstanding cuisine. The flavors and textures were all exquisite. Just be ready to pay for parking. I think it was around 12 for 1-2 hours in the lot behind palmar and limited parking at the restaurant. Well worth it even with parking expenses

We went with very high expectations and with another couple who had been there and loved it. We were very disappointed. The menu was prepared. Y a guest chef and was supposed to be Peruvian Chinese. I am a pesctarian and there was no main course for me to choose from. And Peru Ian’s and Chinese both make great fish dishes.
I chose a pasta dish with vegetables which was uninspired. My husband had the Mongolian chicken and our friends chose the duck and a beef dish. So we pretty much covered the menu, which was short ( we don’t mind that when it is well balanced ). No one was impressed.
We had Happy Buda beers which were very cold. The place is small and well appointed but once it is full of guests the noise is unbearable. Caveat: we are all in our 60s!

Food was great! Great beers and wine selection. Don’t over order. Portions large. If we would have ordered what was suggested to us we would have never gotten past the second course. If you’re not full order more. Food was outstanding!

I made a reservation for 3 people but when we got there the host said there was no table except a small one for 2 outside or we could wait for the normal size table inside to open up. We didn’t mind letting them finish their dinner, but there was a table free that he could have sat us at. The table also remained free the entire time we stayed. Not a great way to start. The food did come out quickly, but the portions were TINY and the flavors weren’t that great. All in all I wouldn’t come back ever.

They need to keep the music a bit lower. Too hard to have a conversation :( We will go back but to seat outside. It was impossible to hear...

Very disappointed. Food was salty even by Chinese standards. If I hadn't heard all the hype I would have thought I was eating at some mid level strip mall Chinese take out. Staff was very nice and service was attentive with a good vibe in the room - sadly the food was a major miss. We only ate half our food and then scrambled over to KYU for a late seat the bar for another amazing meal there that luckily saved the day. Next time we'll skip Palmar altogether.

What a great experience. A little off the path of travel at Wynwood. That was great. I was a little concerned with some so so reviewing on this site. However, the food was creative, fresh, and great. The waiters suggestions were excellent. The music was fun. I’m definitely going back.

One of my favorite restaurants in Miami. Excellent food and alcohol selection without being too expensive. Tropical Asian vibes in the center of wynwood with great service. Lamb wontons and chicken wings are delicious appetizers. Wine Wednesdays get bottles half off. This place is on the up and up.
