I have been here before and also had a 5 star experience. This evening I went with a friend to broaden her horizons in the world of cuisine. She was not disappointed, we had who Korean bbq dishes with loads of sides which all were well explained by our fabulous server GiGi. I can’t wait to bring more friends for an amazing experience.

Food was good! Service was meh... I was with 4 grown men and we were told we couldn’t put the next order in until we were finished cooking the last order. We understand that happens at the end of the service but not at the beginning when only 3 portion worth of food was brought out for 5 people. I would come back but would not host a dinner there for more than 3-4 people ever again.

Our waitress was amazing!!! I believe her name is Devine. We have had her twice before and she is outstanding!!! Food is great. Atmosphere is perfect. We love eating here and socializing with friends. The only downside is the price because it is a little pricey.

Love this place! We eat here every week and it's our favorite spot for Korean in the Charleston area. It's a little expensive, but worth every penny.

This was our first experience at a Korean Restaurant. The kimchi was excellent, probably one of my favorite items. The meats were outstanding. The experience was interactive, which we enjoyed. One of my friends doesn't like spicy food, so this was not for her, but the rest of us enjoyed it.

Excellent service and ample food for the price. Probably the best Firecracker roll I've had in recent memory. We chose the Traditional dining side which I feel is more quaint for date night. The Korean BBQ side seemed more for larger groups and socializing.

Taylor was our server and he was great. He was knowledgeable about the wine (apparently they do staff taste testings regularly) and attentive to our table without feeling like we were being interrupted. Food was terrific- we had the Korean BBQ and the Bulgogi was by far the best meat, but the spicy pork was a close second. We stayed and had a drink at the bar after dinner, too. It's a fun experience unlike any other in the Charleston metro area and would highly recommend.

I was disappointed with my entree. I was seeking an exciting dish, so I asked our server for advice. He of course suggested THE most expensive entree on their menu, (short ribs). I took his advice and ordered it. When it arrived it looked delicious, but the meat was way over cooked. It was left chewy and inedible. Prior to ordering this he assured the meat would fall off the bone. Nope, didn’t happen, the over cooked meat was fuse
d to the bone. It was unpleasant. I sent it back, and a new plate arrived afterwards only this time, only some of the meats were tender, and the spicy kick I had previously requested with my original meal was not there. I was disappointed and expected someone from management to speak with me about sending the plate back but it didn’t happen. I think that’s poor management, my total bill was $120 so it’s not like I was asking for a free meal. I simply like to hear an “I’m sorry” for the inconvenience. I do pay for the experience...none of their actions are out of the kindness of their heart. I’m never returning and I don’t recommend it based on my experience.

Fun time. Felt skimpy on the bulgogi amount. Something was wrong with the music speakers. Excellent waitress. Sushi was delicious.

This was my 4th time eating at 843 and a few things have changed. Each time we were seated at the grilling table, which has always been an enjoyable experience and worth the cost of the food. This time the food for the grill was subpar and not very plentiful.
Pros: Still a fun way to entertain guests. Our server was great. He was entertaining and knowledgeable.

Cons: One of the meats we chose was Pork Belly. The past 2 times this has been a quality cut, very thick with a lot of meat. This time we were served very fatty bacon...it was thin and 3 times more fat than meat. Even after cooking it, it was not edible. The Korean Bulgogi was tasty, but not enough to feed 3 people, even though we cooked it last. Drinks were EXPENSIVE...$8 to $11 each, and it took 25 minutes to get our drinks.

Bottom line: What used to be a great experience and worth the cost has changed. High drink prices, small quantities of food, and lessor quality of food has made this restaurant not worth the money. For 5 people, our FOOD bill alone was $240. 5 drinks added another $43. Definitely not worth $300.
