The pho with beef was adequate, good for a quick bite, although the broth was somewhat generic. Gyoza dumplings were crispy but had a starchy aftertaste. Décor: industrial bistro. Single settings and communal school-cafeteria tables. Service: fast and professional. Do not go out of their...More

This place is one of my favorite Asian restarants in Charleston! I especially love the crab rangoon for an appetizer, and all of the entrees ice had are delicious. Prices are great too, especially for the quality of food you get.

There are not very many vegetarian options in Charleston, this restaurant is an excellent option. The Edamame Gyoza was VERY good. The Fresh Spring roll came straight out of the garden, very fresh and made only when ordered. The vegan Spicy Udon was delicious. EVERYTHING...More
