“Best restaurant at the Catalina hotel”
Reviewed 23 April 2014

I have a good palette for sushi. Tasted fresh and was made carefully. I enjoyed it along with my whiskey. Thumbs up! Funny, but there was also a Moulin rouge performance which cracked me up. Very entertaining dinner experience.

“Couldn't wait to return!”
Reviewed 14 April 2014

My husband and I ate here our first night in South Beach back in January and we fell in love with the food and the cocktails! When we were planning for our April trip to South Beach, we both kept saying how much we wanted to come back to Fung Ku! We stayed 5 nights and had dinner there twice! We love sitting outside to people watch while we eat. I'm in LOVE with the Fung Ku Kick. I may have had 4 or 5.... :)

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 26 March 2014

The wait staff was great and very friendly to our 2 year old, which seems rare in South Beach. The ramen is out of this world!

“Good for a hotel restaurant, felt at home sitting at the bar.”
Reviewed 19 March 2014

Spent an evening away on business in Miami and felt the pain of having another evening eating alone. However some cocktails and Sushi here went down a treat. The staff were very friendly and turned what could have been a short and boring evening into a treat for one.

“Look past first impressions”
Reviewed 11 March 2014

As family people from out of town, my wife and I didn't think we were the target clientele for this joint. Something to do with the less than friendly look on the face of the hostess, and the lights hanging out of a wall recess maybe. I wanted to try it anyway because the menu looked appetizing, if a little pricey. I expect that the hostess may have been expecting a crappy night because it was a Thursday, and Miami had just had a downpour just an hour earlier. I'm so glad I stayed for the food. My wife and I shared the calamari, and a dragon roll. We had planned to grab some appetizers, and then go elsewhere, but the food was wonderful. The place looks like a hotel lobby with some seats thrown in, and a bar where the check-in desk used to be. I would go again for the sushi, and the serving sizes are good for sharing. The Korean pulled pork buns were very good too.
