Chinese food in Miami is what you used to crave after a night of heavy drinking, but then Komodo came along and turned this favorite hangover cure into something of a counterpart for a night of partying. Nightlife impresario David Grutman, best known for Miami Beach’s LIV and Story nightclubs, is behind the Brickell hotspot—which isn’t to say that food takes a backseat here. The menu is filled with traditional Chinese dishes such as dim sum and Peking duck (which hang roasted by the entrance). Happy hour (Mon–Fri 4–7pm) brings the opportunity to try some more innovative options, like the pastrami egg roll, as well as discounted cocktails.

We've returned to Komodo on numerous occasions. The food is always consistent and always tastes amazing. We love Chinese cuisine, but sometimes you want something besides delivery or the strip mall joint that has great food. Komodo has a great atmosphere with a sophisticated clientle. The specialty duck hanging in the kitchen windows are our favorite along with the beef short rib (think big not thin). Komodo will likely be one of our spots for a long time to come.
