Re: “Chez Nous

Every dish we had was perfect! Cannot wait to go back

Re: “Priya Lounge

I wanted SO BADLY to like this place. With only a few hookah bars in downtown (Tabbouli, Paradiso, and Smoking Lamp), it is high time for Charleston to up its game. But this just isn't the place. Yes, the interior looks nice - for now. But with the same owners as Torch, I suspect that it may go downhill and feel dirty just like the previous bar.

The place really has an identity crisis. "Moroccan" theme, with an Indian name, serving Turkish food, and with Latino ownership? The decor is nice, though far from authentic, but more importantly - the hookahs are AWFUL! It is actually embarassing to watch their employees make them.. it's clear they have no idea what they are doing. Moreover, they have no idea what the pricing is.. I visited three times and ordered the EXACT same hookah each time, and was charged different prices by different employees each time. Upon bringing this up, they got extremely confrontational and did not provide any sort of menu that listed their pricing.

Aside from rude employees and a lack of identity, the crowd was really the most off-putting aspect of this (bar? club? restuarant? hookah lounge?).. It is fine on a laid-back weeknight, but the location of the bar BEHIND the hookah lounge is just a bad idea. Excuse me as I'm enjoying my smoke, I do not want to see some blacked-out girl hiking up her dress and sloppily making out with some guy as she nearly knocks over my hookah. Really just an awkward place overall, and so sad to see that what could have been an awesome concept was so poorly executed.

Re: “Lana

Lana is my favorite. I could eat there every night. Food is always good, nice choice of Mediterranean dishes on the menu, none too weird, great service. The place is not too big or too small. Try to get a booth.

Re: “Kanpai Japanese Restaurant

I went there recently. The food was excellent, the service average (a few reminders to the server were needed to get things). I will go back for sure. Good gyoza and hotate sushi, in particular.

Re: “Halls Chophouse

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.

Re: “Robert Lange Studios

RLS is my favorite gallery to be at in Charleston, hands down phenomenal! Once you walk though the doors you're welcomed to make yourself at home. The owners Robert and Megan are more than friendly and approachable. Often you can even catch Robert in the moment of painting in his studio! The walls burst with imagination. All the the artists there blow me away. All are welcomed.

Re: “Robert Lange Studios

RLS is truly a wonderful place to hangout and enjoy some great fine art. Every aspect of the gallery is beautiful - especially the spirits of founders Robert & Megan. Whether you are a high end collector looking for the next masterpiece, or just looking to take a break and enjoy your latte, definitely stop in to look around. There is no prejudice or judgment here - simply love and kindness, so make sure a visit here is on your to-do list next time you are in the area.

Re: “Dragon Palace

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.

Re: “Leon's Oyster Shop

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.

Re: “Kanpai Japanese Restaurant

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.

Re: “Summerville Farmers Market

Save the trek to Market St. and pick up a sweet grass basket from Gigi,next to Gruber Farm stand. Small selection but great prices.

Re: “The Green Goat

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.

Re: “Leon's Oyster Shop

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!
