Re: “Leon's Oyster Shop

The oysters were very good..... The chicken was greasy and over spiced ... Had a dozen good oysters then the bill came at $70.00... Was still hungry sorry never again

Re: “The Islander

Too many great things to write about this place! Everything I've tried so far has been top-notch. Happy that I work close by :-)

Re: “Leon's Oyster Shop

Striving for authenticity of a neighborhood oyster house this falls flat. Expensive for what it is and the sides are lackluster.

Re: “DeSano Pizza Bakery

Try this Corn Continental pizza which incorporates lots of Indian spices while still staying true to the concept of Italian pizza.Tandoori Pizza is an exciting way of preparation and presentation. It really melts your mouth just looking at it.

Re: “Butcher & Bee

The Daily is disappointing at best! The baristas don't seem to have any training on preparing decent espresso. The coffee seems to be an after thought, as no one seems to really have any sort of urgency in helping you with a coffee, the flow is awkward without a cash register to approach, there is no where to sit for a minute, and the pastries are out on a table susceptible to being touched by other customers before you buy it! Please make some improvements to your concept!!! People in the neighborhood want to love a place like this. Your attempt to be cutting edge while also trying to be a little bit of everything to everyone is going to keep anyone from being a diehard regular. We have been three times, and will not be back anytime soon if ever.

Re: “Mi Xao

Been here many times... Love the food (taste, & great portions), love the staff (very attentive), and such attention to detail for a small place... Perfect!

Re: “Mi Xao

This place rocks. Tucked away in a little shopping center on the 41 - 17 corner, it's not easy to find but worth it. Chef Toan (pronounced Twan) always has a smile on his face and couldn't be nicer. He'll sit with you if he's not too busy and talk food. The salads are awesome and the Pho is great on a cold day.

Re: “Carmen y Juan's

For those looking for the only authentic Mexican food East of the Cooper look no further than Carmen y Juan. Carmen does the cooking and Juan does the rest. This neat couple treat you like you are in their kitchen at home. Carmen usually has something special going in the kitchen if you ask. My personal fav are the chicken enchiladas with the salsa verde. Fresh, light, and delicious. If you think Mexican is heavy and covered in cheese do your self a favor and give these guys a try. You'll be back I promise.

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: “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.

Well worth the visit. Some of the best oysters I've had in a long time.
