I am interested in sweetgrass weaving
what are your upcoming classes for this year?
We live a short walk away, so had high hopes for this new neighborhood hangout. They'd solved their initial teething problems with wait times and service by the time we visited -- waiters were attentive and food came out quickly -- but that's the best we can say about it. The cocktails we ordered -- three different drinks -- were all failures, with strange, synthetic flavors (mine tasted much like toilet freshener!). My wife ordered a spiked milkshake without looking at the price, and was shocked to discover it was $14, more than many of the entrees. The starters and mains we ordered were very bland: diner food that would be acceptable in another setting, but not at the prices we were paying. Everything was under-flavored and lacking in spark. The place was packed -- but I can't see it being that way in 6 months once the early excitement dies down, unless they do something dramatic with the menu. What a disappointment!
Really fun! Looking forward to it! All ages, all skills!
A fantastic venue with a nice atmosphere, a fast wood floor, and plenty of seating with chairs and tables to make yourself comfortable.
Wonderful people, Amazing place!
As soon as I opened the door, I knew this was going to be good. It just smelled right. It smelled like Asia.
Even though they do not focus on one cuisine (which certainly made me skeptical), they are taking great pains to make everything as authentic as possible. We have been three times and everything has been wonderful including Ramen, Bun Thit Nuong and the gorgeously sweet and spicy duck Geng Bped. While I can’t vouch for the authenticity of everything I have had there, the absolute authenticity of the dishes that I am VERY familiar with in their countries of origin gives me confidence in the ones that I unfortunately missed in my extensive Asian travels.
Until someone else starts making Asian food this authentic around here, you can charge me anything the hell you want.
Som Tam papaya salad is my favorite dish from any cuisine in the world and I have enjoyed it many times both in Thailand and Laos. Theirs is spot on. Everything you need to know about this restaurant comes from the fact that they don’t even ask if you want the dish prepared the way it is supposed to be or if you want it watered down for the American palette. It came nice and spicy without me having to plead and beg and unlike many Asian places around here they are not afraid of fish sauce. They serve it the way you would get it in Thailand or Laos without giving you the option of dumbing it down. Please don’t let anyone talk you out of this approach.
Apparently this is the best kept secrect in Hanahan/North Charleston. From the road it looks like a dive bar/restaurant but inside it's not at all. A buddy of mine told me I should go in there on a Wednesday and try their steak special (10oz. for $8.95 with salad, french fries or baked potato). This may be the best deal going in town and the sorrounding area! You definitely won't be dissappointed and the waitstaff was great!
The service was excellent- Tara took wonderful care of us and made fabulous recommendations! The food was very good, although not quite as great as expected. However the staff as well as the atmosphere more than made up for cuisine not meeting the (admittedly high) expectations I had. The outside dining area is also VERY cool- we will certainly be back when the weather warms up!
this well appointed bistro has great rooms, booths and out door seating... the ribs were perfect last night and the beer compliments a great menu... ORIGINAL MS ROSE may be a new refurbished place, but it's a winner on Sam Rittenberg, Sue & I love it
I went there recently and had a conversation with the head cook/chef. He actually understands the nuances of cooking and leverages them to make some more complex dishes. Nirlep and ToI are simply a mediocre attempt at trying to replicate what their mothers taught them. I can outcook both of them and I am not exaggerating. Bombay's service has not been consistent, i.e. sometimes I would get excellent service and attention and sometimes it would be spotty at best. Their fresh naan is a definite win. I would say the buffet is a conventional option at many indian places, but I would recommend dining in and trying something more sophisticated instead of settling for buffet. The buffet is nice to get a sample of different elements of the thoroughfare, but if you are not a beginner when it comes to eating indian food, I recommend trying something from the non-buffet selection.
Huge portions, affordable prices, delicious food, and great service. What more could you ask for?
I grew up in the lowcountry and as a kid stayed up all night many a time drinking beer and cooking whole hogs in backyard pits. REAL lowcountry BBQ. Sticky Fingers, IMO, is grossly overrated. It's Memphis style BBQ, not SC or lowcountry BBQ. If you want some serious BBQ, drive to Holly Hill and eat at Sweatman's or go to Conway for meat from Scott's. There are dozens of mom & pop BBQ joints within 70 miles of the coast that put Sticky Fingers to shame. Brown's in Kingstree is fantastic!! Here in Charleston the best places for Carolina style or lowcountry BBQ are Duke's on Folly Road and JB's Smokeshack on Maybank over on Johns Island.
Great variety, good prices. What brings me back is the friendly staff and and helpful service.
Great food, super service. Hosted a large party for lunch during our wedding weekend and almost everyone in the party bought the BBQ sauce sampler - it was THAT good.
We've been there twice and found the service to be both friendly and attentive. The decor is really striking and I enjoy it. Their brunch benedict and chocolate french toast dishes were superb. The sausage sandwich is good but only if you like State Fair-level greasy. The bbq meatloaf sandwich is just as good as it sounds. The fried fish sandwich was a bit dry.
All in all, it is our current "go to" lunch spot for Sam Rittenburg-area shopping trips.
I was so excited to try out Ms. Rose's and walked away disappointed.
The food was so so but the service was terrible. Our server forgot our appitizer, let our water glasses sit empty and we had to remind her we ordered a second round of cocktails.
We ordered the gnocchi and a ruben. I asked to subsitute the protien in the gnocchi and our server said there was an upcharge, which i expected but it was her delivery that threw me off. The gnocchi was good, lots of flavor. The ruben was just average. I will give them credit for their fries. They were awsome.
I won't rush back anytime soon.
There were 6 of us, the portions are too small for that large a group for sharing. Be SURE to ask what the price of anything labeled "market price" or you will be in for a rude awakening. The night we went we spent 5 bucks PER OYSTER, 60 bucks for a dozen raw oysters. There should have at least been a little pearl in them. Meat lovers beware, this is truly a seafood restaurant.
Service is just kind of meh. Atmosphere also leaves something to be desired, as the tables are kind of cramped in the very narrow space.
The food, however, is outstanding and reasonably priced. Best curry this side of Calhoun. Working on King street, I eat here at least once a week.
Love love love Wildflour!!! Delicious savory scones & very reasonable prices. My dog also loves her dog cookies. :) Coffee is delic. also
