I went here on Saturday night with a date and absolutely loved it. I ordered the vegetarian plate, and it was AMAZING. Mrs. Hall knew my date, and she introduced herself to me and was incredibly warm and friendly. The bartender, Hugh, was attentive and funny, and the rest of the staff were kind as well. Not sure what all these negative reviews are about--I will DEFINITELY be going back here.
We have lived on DI for a few years now, and we love Dragon Palace! The service is very quick for a dine-in restaurant and the food is great and much more authentic than your average take-out! If you like real Chinese food rather than the typical American-Chinese food, you will love it.
Huge fan of this place. Everytime I have been the food has been spot on and the service good. Must try the shrimp toast, Siam salad, barley salad, and of course the sandwiches. Definitely a place to check out.
Finally heeded the good press here and elsewhere and went to Kanpai last night... How foolish I feel for ignoring this place for so long. Chef Park's humble (in location/appearance) restaurant belies the quality of sushi and other Japanese fare therein. We had steamed buns, both duck confit and beef, to start, and I could have eaten more of these for a meal. The duck confit was truly outstanding. Next we had some nigiri (salmon roe) and then a bigger roll, the Wagyu Roll. The nigiri was fresh and light as it should be, but holy cow, that Wagyu Roll. Tempura shrimp and avocado with seared Wagyu beef on top? Um, yes, please. It actually tastes better than it sounds. We also had the "popcorn" shrimp, which were tasty and spicy in their own right, but also came with a pleasant dressing/sauce with apples and avocado and fresh greens. I don't think there's any question this is the best sushi/Japanese food East of the Cooper, and probably in all of Charleston. Can't wait to go back.
BULLY PULPIT, JOYKILLS, CRAZY BAG! ALL FOR ONE NIGHT ONLY!
All three incredibly awesome live acts. Give yourself a pat on the back for going here cheese and crackers!
tasty, light fare with lots of veggies, nice decor, good service, reasonable prices, easy seating, no tourists.
Well worth the visit. Some of the best oysters I've had in a long time.
Just had lunch at the GG and can add two things to the previous post:
Pork chops, fried rice and grilled mixed vegetables were absolutely yummy.
The over pouring server has been removed.
That being said, my personal policy is to no longer order mixed drinks anywhere that does not use measuring devices on their liquor, and post the amount measured.
Simply put, I need my license, I don't need a DUI, especially after trying to drink responsibly and stop after two drinks.
These servers that do this over pouring are not doing you any favors; their only interest is to get you more inebriated so you will tip more.
They could give a shit less about the legal problems that may cause you.
So very glad I got to eat the fried chicken and check out this creative and tasty new spot before work pulled me out of Charleston for a few months. It was one of the last things I did before leaving downtown and I can't wait to get back. Best of luck to Brooks and Tim!
Food is outdated and the drinks are not consistent. You can leave in a cab after 2 drinks. Which is great if you're into having a good time in 30 mins or less. If the owners don't change up the menu or the bartenders they may not be in business for long.
I was in the Mt Pleasant restaurant... place smelled like dirty mop water, my arms stuck to the table. Got up and left- pronto!
I've eaten at Bushido many times and enjoyed it- i wouldn't say it's anything outstanding but I live quite close and appreciate knowing I can rely on them for consistently good sushi if I get a craving or can't bring myself to cook dinner after work!
For the city paper folks: the link info provided with this write up is incorrect. I just located their actual site, bushidojapaneserestaurant.com.
Wonderful hospitality, fabulous ingredients, exceeds expectations!
I totally understand scmama's comment(Bless her little heart!). Sweetie, if you're used to going to Huddle House, you probably won't like this food, and you should probably stay as far away from Shem Creek and Downtown as possible.
Try the sesame chicken salad with honey mustard dressing. Its fantastic. Anyone comparing the seed to huddle has has zero credibility. If something isn't right at the seed you send it back and they fix it. Their motto is "we kiss your ass". Fantastic food and great people. If you don't speak up you can blame yourself.
I have visited this wonderful bakery a few times since it opened, and have nothing but wonderful things to say about it! They have a great variety of sweet treats, at reasonable prices compared to other bakeries in the area. The staff there is warm, friendly, and welcoming, and they appear to be working very hard to create a great bakery on James Island, which has been lacking one. I really hope their business does well. If you have a sweet tooth, check them out. You won't be disappointed!
Warm inviting and DELICIOUS! Could sit at the bar all day long on a rainy day soaking up the atmosphere, dining on incredible food and a great bottle of wine.
So disappointed in our meal tonight. Veggies way over salted. Fish over cooked. Crab cakes mostly filler, very little crab. Have had better meals at Huddle House. Easily worst restaurant east of Pacific. Hipster waiter only told us about specials he liked, said others "weren't good." Avoid Mt. Pleasant location.
beyond fabulous, every bite! cool, knowing wait staff. wonderful, relaxed atmosphere. i will definitely return. 5 stars all the way.
I was in the business for over 30 years, managing and owning restaurants. I can not figure out how this family keeps the place packed! Service is rough, food is mediocre in regards to the prices charged.
