Had an excellent time at 843. It was our first time ever trying Korean BBQ and we are from out of town. We had some trouble getting seated (got moved twice), but once we sat down, Jimmy was a great server/cook. He was personable and very knowledgeable. Would definitely visit again whenever we come back to Charleston. Also, my partner said the prickly pear punch was great!

We were thoroughly impressed with 843 Korean BBQ. Our server Gigi was great! She was very attentive and didn't mind answering the many questions we had as it was our first experience. We would definitely recommend. Well worth the price paid.

This was our first time doing Korean BBQ and can’t wait to go back. The best service and so helpful with the cooking process and how to order. A special shout out to Liz that guided us through this experience. Don’t hesitate to make a reservation for 2 or more and be assured you will love it.

Sushi was awesome, brisket had way to much fat on it and was hard to chewy.

My girlfriend and I have been here previously with a fantastic experience this time not so much. We made the reservation online and were seated very quickly. Very shortly after being seated I overheard what appeared to be maybe two hostess discussing how we didn’t have a server. One of them came over after walking away and told us a server possibly Ms. Janet or Janice would be our server for the evening. We had already been waiting a while so we placed our orders with her which was the BBQ essentials and Rivers Ave sushi roll. We had no interaction from other members of the staff for over 20 minutes. We were gathering our things to leave because the only thing we had received was the water. The hostess not server came over and explained sushi was half off and the chefs were backed up causing the delay. I was empathetic to that but upset I was not made aware of the special. After noting we had been sitting there for a while she brought out our BBQ and that’s when I served appeared. She rarely addressed up and was putting all the meats on the grill before we were ready. It felt like we were being rushed out even tho the delay was no fault of our own. After this experience I’ve had my fair share.

It has been a long time since i had really great, genuine Korean food. I would like to say my wife and I truly enjoyed it. We will come again and hope to find more varieties of Kimchi and fresh garlic to go with the meals. It brought me back to my days in Korea :) Thanks so much! - Steven & Cole

We did All you can eat BBQ, I think it’s the best deal in their menu. Most of BBQ menus are over $20 anyway so if you get more than 1 serving, it’s worth it. The service, side dishes, food.. everything was lovely. I go to 843 pretty often and don’t have any bad experience. Just try not to drink too much Soju(korean vodka) or your bill will be 3 digits! 😆

We ❤️ eating Korean BBQ! Whomever makes the side dishes at 843 does an amazing job! It is fun and social to sit down with family and friends at this restaurant while we cook deliciously marinated meats and cut veggies! The sides are definitely one of the main reasons why we return to this fun delicious restaurant! Kimchi Radish and Cabbage; bean sprouts; Fish cake; Bulgogi, spicy chicken! 😋 yum! The Soju flight I had on my last visit was delicious and a fun way to find a favorite flavor. Thank you! We will be back!

We had a group holiday dinner at 843 last night and we all left really impressed and planning on a return soon! I made the reservation through OpenTable but the restaurant called me the afternoon before to confirm, which I thought was a nice touch. When I explained that we had 15 RSVPs but were expecting anywhere from 10-20, they happily worked with me to set the right number of tables.

We sat on the bbq side and our waiters (Jeff annnnd I never got the other guy's name) patiently explained the process to the group as people arrived. They also explained the menu to us and gave great suggestions. I would have liked to see more local beers available, but I was happy with what was offered. We ended up with one table of 9 and one table of 4 (and we would have split them more evenly but it worked out) and I felt like we got to taste almost everything on the menu! I don't know if I could have picked a favorite. We realized afterwards that we could have ordered half as much food but we were happy with our choices.

After dinner we headed to the karaoke room. My only complaint there was that the books were both organized by song and not my artist (the places I've been before usually have one by song and one by artist) so it was hard to find a few things, but we still sang our hearts out.

This was an absolute blast and a perfect location for a group outing.

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.
