They were out of all the dishes we wanted to eat. The food was pretty good. The drinks were terrible. But all and all it’s worth a visit if you are vegan.

Everything was amazing!!! We had the cauliflower app, calamari, garlic knots, bbq jackfruit pizza and mushroom pizza (both gluten free), beyond burger with bacon, mac n cheese, lentil ragout, and both house and Caesar salads. They were out of a few things (veggie bowl, falafel salad, seasonal dessert, and some drinks), but that’s to be expected with fresh food. The cosmos was our fave drink by far — like a liquid pink Starburst mixed with vodka! Service was upbeat and prompt. This is in our top 3 Charleston restaurants!!!

My only complaint about Neon Tiger is that it would be great if they switched up some of their dishes here and there. Since Charleston is so limited on vegan and vegetarian options, having a few rotational dishes would be great for locals or those who travel here frequently. Additionally, adding a few more non-fried options would be great.

As to my experience on this particular day, it was generally good. While they didn’t have a table ready for us, they did have the lounge area which was fine for us. The service was fast and the food was great! Will be back!

We came for my sons birthday, and the experience was awesome.

Service was fantastic for our party of 7 on the patio. Great vibe throughout.

We had two pies for the table, garlic knots, and shrimp.
Some of the breaded items were a bit over cooked, but flavor was great.

The pastrami sandwich was delicious, but a bit overcooked.

Caesar salad was excellent!

Chocolate cake with a candle was a fun touch, it was delicious.
We will be back!

Service was friendly and prompt. The food is always amazing! One of the best restaurants in Charleston. I never thought I'd find something better than the shrimp appetizer but the trumpet mushroom calamari appetizer was just as good, if not better. Whether you get their appetizers, pizza, mac n cheese, salad, or sandwiches, it is all good. Making my way through their menu and I've had 11 items. All 11 have been great. Always a pleasant dining experience.

My family and I only had one night in Charleston and I am so glad we went to Neon Tiger for dinner! We are all vegan so we loved having a whole menu of options to choose from. We got the Classic Burger and Buffalo Chicken Sandwich and both were delicious and the portions were super generous. Everyone working there was incredibly kind and helpful, and it had a very fun interior and atmosphere. I can’t recommend it enough!

Everything was pretty good except the service. Our waitress checked on us once and we were looking for her for 25 minutes to ask her for the check after we were done eating. This place is awesome but the service was awful. Last time I was there I also had a piece of metal scrubber in my pizza and never got a message back about it. I came here for my birthday and would have had a better time anywhere else in town.

So Thrilled to finally have a vegan option in Charleston. It has been difficult to dine out most places due to poor options. Food was divine. Eager to eat there again and try more dishes.

Perfect date night spot! Everything was absolutely delicious. My partner isn’t vegan and he equally enjoyed everything we ordered (calamari, garlic knots, Reuben sandwich, Buffalo chicken sandwich, Cesar salad, and the INCREDIBLE chocolate cake). The drinks were also fantastic. Highly highly recommend.

The BEST place to bring your non-vegan friends if you are doing something to celebrate a vegan or vegetarian! I am vegan, whereas other members of my family are not, and I was worried that they would not enjoy the restaurant as much as I knew I would. But, I was wrong!!! We had the best time thanks to Katie and the other staff at Neon Tiger! :)

Amazing!!!! This was our second dinner here during our week long vacation in Charleston. There were too many options for just one trip! A fully vegan menu makes me like a kid in a candy store! The drinks are great, the food is even better. Bummed I didn’t get to try the chocolate cake, it was sold out, but hopefully they’ll keep it around for a while. I’ll definitely be back every time I can visit CHS.

Phenomenal! Best food I've had downtown in years and you'd never know it is all vegan. I usually judge a restaurant by if I think I could make the food better at home and typically I can. It only took one bite to realize I definitely could not make this food better. Even the cocktails were 10/10. Delicious food, friendly and attentive staff, energetic atmosphere, and decent prices for the quality. I will be a regular here from now on.

I was in town for the weekend and I decided to make a reservation. I was really excited but I was slightly disappointed. I ordered the classic burger and got it upgraded with vegan cheese... I got it with gluten free buns. ( A $17 value) with a side of fries. I started eating the burger and it was actually really hard to get a bite into because the bun was really hard. I didn't realize til I was already home that my burger didn't even have cheese and I ended up paying for it. I also order a Tumeric Ginger beer soda... Which I ordered without alcohol... But got charged as cocktail. The waiter was very absent during our visit. She did come and apologize... May the lack of service would of been overseen if the food was exquisite and I was charged fairly. I never write "poor" reviews but I felt that the restaurant should know that they need to do better. If you're charging that much for a burger it needs to be mouth watering when it comes to all of the elements. The restaurant is really cute, I did really enjoy that.

A hip and modern vegan interpretation of dishes from Pizza to The classic Ruben Sandwich. All very flavorful and as close to the original as possible given vegan ingredients. High point for me... The “Calamari “ Appetizer. Low point.... Mac and Cheese
Good wine and Cocktails also. Excellent service
Overall a fun experience.

We drive 3 hours (round trip) to eat here and it’s amazing every time. We always take pizzas home for the next day 🤣. My one and only complaint is that they almost always only have one dessert. And it’s chocolate cake (I hate chocolate lol). But seriously this is one of my all time favorite vegan restaurants and I’ve been to a bunch. We are actually planning on going back tomorrow lol.

Probably the best Vegan restaurant in the south, much better value and coolness than Plant in Miami for example, the concept has hints of STK with really cool music, Future Islands, The War on Drugs, Death Cab while eating great food in a cool place makes you feel Red Hook BK. This is a Must. 🎖
