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.

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.

We were very impressed. The service was excellent. The food was delicious. I had the BimBap with tofu & the green dragon roll as an appetizer. We were in the “Traditional” seating section. I had dined previously on the other side, and that was fun too.

Servers were very attentive. They kept coming by to see how everything was every five minutes. We appreciate having an attentive server, but it became annoying after several interruptions within a short period of time. Would like to try the Korean BBQ next time.

It was our Anniversary on Monday and our first time at 843 Korean BBQ. At first my wife was a little apprehensive, but warmed up once we started eating. We had a great time. Staff was so friendly and not just our server, the whole staff. I’m a restaurant manager, and they were amazing!!! I want to repeat that, AMAZING! I live for spicy pork, it was so good. I was eating food I don’t normally eat: kimchi, sprouts...All you people in Opentable world reading this should make 843 Korean BBQ a priority if you live in or if you’re visiting SC.

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!
