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.

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!!!
