Miami’s Chinese restaurants have always been a source of comfort. They’re always there with soul-warming noodle bowls and mounds of fried rice when we need it the most—like every time we’re severely hungover from going overdoing it on the booze delivery. Not to mention that it’s impossible to feel anything but excited after you’ve had dim sum. The lockdown is no different with most of these wonderful spots staying open to serve the community with food that can be enjoyed at home. So in case you’re in the mood for killer Asian food, we culled our list of the best Chinese restaurants in Miami to bring you the spots offering food to-go as well as the newly sprung pop-ups you need to know.  


This petite parcel on the outer edges of tightly packed Wynwood serves up a variety of both accessible dim sum and more adventurous plates, like blue crab fried rice topped with bean sprouts and a sticky 63-degree egg. It’s just the kind of dish you’ll want to order to bring the restaurant experience home. Wine, beer and sake is also available at 50-percent off.

How to order: Delivery and takeout via Toast; Wed–Fri 4–9pm; Sat, Sun noon–9pm.

Tropical Chinese

This family-owned spot is a Miami stapled for Hong Kong-style Chinese food and the best dim sum west of the Palmetto. During the crisis, Tropical Chinese is staying open for takeout while still working to provide free meals to healthcare workers. Customers can help their cause by donating on the GoFundMe

How to order: Call for takeout 305-262-1552; Daily 11am–10pm.

Blackbrick Chinese

Chef Richard Hales’s modern Chinese spot continues to sling Sichuan cuisine to-go, including specialties like the Key West shrimp sui mai and General Tso’s Florida gator. Hales’s Grateful Hospitality has also been working to feed frontline workers in Miami. For every $14 donation, which can be made online, they’ll provide two meals to someone out in the field.

How to order: Delivery and takeout via Toast, UberEats, Postmates and Doordash; Mon–Thu 5–9pm; Fri–Sun 1–9pm.

Mr Chow

No glitterati crowds while the international upscale chain remains closed, but you can still eat like you’re one of them. Make it a high-class night with dishes like the Beijing chicken, spare ribs, the signature noodles and more. Sake and champagne are also available for takeout if you really want to get bougie.

How to order: Delivery and takeout via Postmates; Fri–Mon 4–9:3pm; Mon, Tue 4–9pm.


Tanuki offers a ton of variety, especially in the dim sum department. Try dumplings stuffed with truffles, mushrooms, duck and other inventive fillings. It’s more Pan-Asian that straight Chinese—but the more, the merrier, right?

How to order: Delivery and takeout via UberEats, Postmates, and Doordash as well as directly and and by calling 305-615-1055. Use code “First” for 10-percent off your first order and “Second” for 15-percent off your second. Available daily 4–10pm.

No Name Chinese’s Pablo Zitzmann is selling dishes from the now-shuttered restaurant via his new Instagram. Score scallion pancakes, fried rice and hand-pulled noodles, plus ready-to-cook dumplings you finish off at home. Zitzmann only takes five orders a day so you’ll have to wait at least two weeks for your Chinese feast, but it’ll be worth it.

How to order: Slide into their DMs and keep your fingers crossed.
