Went twice in the past week, the first for drinks and the second for dinner. Was very pleased to find Greenville's own Kind beer on tap and loved the reclaimed wood bar. Bar staff was very friendly and enjoyed sake shots for the first time in my life. On my second time to Octobachi I had the chicken and mushroom hibachi. Upon ordering I was told the chicken was free range and was thoroughly pleased, I believe this should be the norm and like that they don't advertise the quality of their food and at 8.99 I was very happy with the proportions and perfectly cooked chicken and mushrooms. The teriyaki sauce went very well with everything on the plate. Overall I'm very pleased with my two experiences at octobachi and will definitely be back soon. It is definitely what this neighborhood needs.
Amazing design, phenomenal food, really friendly staff, and great add to the Charleston restaurant scene! Well done Octobachi.
kims korean food rocks, been 5 times and never had a bad experince
We will not go anywhere else in the Charleston area for sushi. Kim's offers what we want...nice clean sashimi. No where else gives you the amount of fish you receive at Kim's for the price. For the past three years we have been searching for that "go-to" place for sushi and have not been able to find what we're looking for. All the glamor and glitz you get at some of the other places don't excite us in the least. I want to pay for fish...not some fancy bar or big name chef.
The service at Kim's could stand some improvement. We will not argue that point.
For sushi, Kim's is a pretty good option.
I have been frequenting Little Tokyo since the small building and now that it is in Goose Creek it is even better! This restaurant is the most authentic Japanese place around here that I have been to and it is awesome! The lunch prices are really good and the portions are huge. The Tokyo lunch and the noodle lunches are excellent. Don't forget to get the egg roll appetizer, you won't be disappointed.
I LOVE this place. Fuji is my favorite place for sushi in Charleston, and I eat there at least once a week. The staff is extremely nice, and the food is always delicious!
Best sushi in Charleston! The manager personally came over to our table to great us and see how we enjoyed our meal. There is not one bad thing to say about this place. Every time I eat there, I always leave wanting more. SO GOOD!
TONIGHT is a Dancehall Reggae Party you don't wanna miss!!! Big up Tsunami for the great $2 Drink Specials and Sushi till Midnight !!
Have been to dozens of Sushi places all around the country and very few have matched Sake House. The Sushi chef (Sonny) is an artist that out does himself each visit. Freshness is the norm and the cost is very reasonable. Sonny's dishes are presented in an absolute beautiful manner. Service is also very good, with the staff becoming very familiar with the regulars likes and dislikes. The opening was long awaited and hopefully Sake House will be a long term fixture in the North Charleston area.
I forgot to rate, but my review should say enough
With my experience at Bushido, meals do not seem to be overpriced at all. It's much more cheaper than it would be at any kind of Japanese Steakhouse, and you don't have to worry about the hassell of waiting for people to get to your table so the chef can come out. Sushi won't take too long, but you have to remember that there are several sushi chefs up there that are making everyone's sushi at one time and they can only work so fast to provide the best quality for us as customers. As far as takeout orders are concerned, I've not had a single mess up on a take out order. The two deliveries that I've gotten have come to me within 30 to 45 minutes and my food was hot when it got to me also. As far as JackDanielz9's comment goes, fyi, go anywhere and there will be 18% gratuity added onto any table with 6 or more people. Common rule of thumb. Definitely will still continue to be a regular customer at Bushido!!
Went there last Monday for Food and Bev night (now it's called Twist). Excellent drink specials and great sushi and new dinner menu. The bartenders were very nice and the food was awesome.
Excellent. I strongly disagree with other reviews. This place brings a fantastic menu and excellent service. Monday, Wednesday and another day i cannot remember now (thursday or friday) they offer a happy hour (from 5-7) half-price cocktails, and sushi. Nice atmosphere, and delicious food. My favorite sushi: potato roll, oh, and another one with scallops and mozarella!
There is also a Carpaccio of yellowtail...amazing!!
I was a loyal of Little Tokyo when they were in Summerville--I worked only two blocks from them and ate there for lunch at least once a week. I'm extremely happy for them to have move up to a larger place and cannot wait to go back. All of the food I have had there is exceptional and well priced. If you're lucky, the chef might have made miso soup that day and it is incredible. They are also wonderful people and that makes it even better. Wade Flinner the Teacher
I live in west Ashley and I can't believe I haven't heard about Bushido's. I'm glad I brought my family there because its the best sushi and hibachi we've had thus far. I have a 3 and 5 year old and I'm happy I dont have to sit next to strangers around the hibachi table and wait a really long time to get our food. Definitely coming back.
I went their with some friends and we did a sushi dinner. Excellent sushi. Fun atmosphere, although you will get a bit damp if you sit right next to the fountain. We didn't do the hibachi thing that night, but I certainly plan on going back and giving it a try!
I've been a loyal customer ever since they were originally located in Summerville, SC. I'm so glad they relocated, I live right in Crowfield so this is a treat for me.
There are many reasons why I love Tsunami's downtown.
First and foremost: the sushi is excellent. They rolls vary from simple offerings you would expect at any sushi joint (spicy tuni, california roll) to complicated and unique rolls. One of my favorite rolls is "the last sushi", which is topped with tuna and a generous helping of spicy wasabi paste.
The staff is excellent. I visit Tsunami almost every week, and I've only had a bad experience once (from a server who is no longer employed there). The barstaff and waitstaff are very friendly, extremely attentive without being imposing. Linn and Tara are two great examples; they both provide outstanding and personalized service each time I visit.
I need to mention the nice specials that tsunamis offers. There is a sushi happy hour each day, 4:30-6:30pm. Your choice of 3 rolls from a limited menu for $8.99. Select beers are $2 all the time, and monday is F&B night.
Five stars all around
The "Rock Bowl" as I call it was amazing. Probably one of the top 10 best meals I've had in Charleston. Thanks to Jeff Allen for recommending this place because I never would have found it otherwise.
