The food is very pricey but good. On our visit our server was cooking our pork on the table and then stepped away. He didn’t leave any guidance so we waited for him to come back but then I realized our food was burning. It was still edible but slightly burned. Our grill had to be replaced in order to cook our chicken next due to it being burned.

For a last minute decision, it was a good one. Our greeting was very warm and attentive. We decided on the non-traditional dinner where you prepare your selected meats and that was great also.

Service was excellent and the were attentive to our every need. We will definitely go back and the next time invite our friends to join in on great service and GREAT tasting food.

Service was very slow. I sat for almost 20 minutes without much attention from the server. Not even getting a water. Eventually, kind lady came to me to serve, but I was already not having fun. I moved from dining table to bbq table. The first area that server suggested had overly smelly from grilling. I asked for another area not too smelly, then moved to the second bbq table that has less smell. The server finally confessed that the first bbq room had some ventilation issues the other day. Why didn't she tell me ahead and suggested a better seat from the first place? Ordered seasoned beef BBQ and wined pork belly. Beefs were thin, and tough. $33 was over priced. Wined pork belly tasted not pleasant. After well-done, meats got so tough to chew. Side dishes were only marinated kimches. Lettuce was extra charge, so didn't order. Also, it was gross that there were little flies around my kimches..OMG there are a lot of issues in this restaurant. I gave 2 stars on service, only bc the server tried to grill my meats although this service was common in other Korean BBQ restaurants. Then, I felt uncomfortable when the server watched me while I was writing tips. I paid total $75 for two bbq orders. Overpriced, not tasty, not pleasant at all. This place needs improvements.

Amazing and then some. The food was made and presented to perfection . . . from the daily made sides to our main courses of Bi Bim Bap and Shrimp Pad Thai. And if that wasn't enough, Hanna truly enhanced our culinary experience with her smiling service and incredible culinary and cultural knowledge.
We already have recommended this incredible restaurant to friends, family and co-workers and we will be back for Everyday Dining, Date Night, Special Occasions, Business Meals and Friend Get-Together's.
FYI - we recently moved from Phoenix to Charleston and couldn't be happier to have our #1 Korean Restaurant secured.
Can't wait to come back and try the other side of the restaurant and Korean Barbecue.

First time here for my Moms birthday. All 8 of us had never had Korean BBQ, and I must say we absolutely enjoyed everything. Our waitress was very knowledgeable and walked us through everything. We all would come back and enjoy the other food this place has to offer. Absolute Diamond for food and service. Thank you!!!

This place is wonderful. I always have a great dining experience when I visit. The atmosphere and the service are exceptional. I think it is the staff and the management team that creates such a welcoming and fun environment for this restaurant, and makes it stand out in Charleston as a great place to dine. The sushi is phenomenal. The menu is great. It’s very family-friendly.

An unexpected find north of Charleston, SC. This is very authentic Korean BBQ restaurant. The wait staff (Carrie from Maryland0 was simply phenomenal. The waitron (yes, it is a word), went on to describe how amazingly the owners of this establishment treat her.

For me, that is a big clincher.

Yes, a two thumbs-up endorsement.

Wow, what a find! We were looking for a restaurant not far from our hotel, and this popped up. Great service - attentive and informed - and great food. The whole experience was superb. We had the sashimi salad, the tuna tartar, edamame, and the vegetable BBQ - all wonderful, healthy, and fun. The tuna tartar was the best, most creative my wife and I have ever had. Bravo to chef and staff.

Overall good experience. Food was moderate. Portions a little bit small, quality could be better (our pork belly had A LOT of fat which I know it will but it was nearly ALL fat), and overpriced. On the other note it was a fun atmosphere, interesting décor, & our server Hannah was humorous and nice.

A great place to have a nice romantic date out or even just a casual lunch. The servers were amazing and gave great recommendations. The food was so flavorful and colorful. The menu had a wide variety from sushi rolls to BBQ and ribs. The atmosphere was very relaxing and romantic in the traditional dining side and energetic on the BBQ grilling side. Spent about $50 for two people but the portions are good in value. Best of both worlds! 10/10 would recommend going again for any occasion.

This was the first time that I visited 843 and I'm sure to return again. My wife had the surf and turf sushi and proclaimed Thursday it was very good. I had the Valentine Day three course special. All courses were prepared well, with the appetizer and dessert just being ok,and the main course, blackened tuna over risotto being above average. I would say that the presentation of the courses, and cocktails rivals most restaurants. Our server was very attentive and performed his job well.

This was our fourth visit and this time with a party of six. We ate at the BBQ table with cook your own meats - spicy chicken, pork belly, beef, and veggies and it was delicious and fun. The staff at 843 are always super nice, attentive and fun. Ashley, our server, was patient explaining options to those new to the Korean cooking option at our grill table. If you want a fun way to share good food and good company, this is the place for you.

We did the AYCE BBQ but was disappointed with the side options. We liked that the meat options were increased but missed the sides like the japchae, baked mussels, & sushi. We are fans of the previous AYCE options. We also requested to celebrate an early birthday and the celebration did not occur.
