There is public parking 2 minutes from there if you don't want to deal with curb side parking. There is a small down stairs dining room and a larger upstairs one. They have a good happy hour menu for drinks and food. We got the infused saki for only $3.00 which was surprisingly good. We also ordered the tataki tuna... More

My wife and I enjoy Vietnamese food and visited Co while we were in Charleston. The atmosphere is basic and the sound level is a bit high for us. Our pho was quite good, but certainly not the best we have ever had.

My standards are high for dumpling houses and the key is looking for thin wrappers on the potsticker/gyoza/dumpling. They nail it here. The pork belly buns are what I've found in many cities as the new standard (a slice of well flavored meat, mixed greens, sauce) in a C-shaped steamed rice dough bun. This bun is actually served in authentic... More

Lots of young people gravitate on King Street close to the College of Charleston campus. This place is mostly aimed at them - attraction to Asian food, excellent location, reasonable prices all at the reach of students.

I'm not kidding when I say this, avoid this place at ALL costs. From the outside you think you're going to walk into the coolest Asian cuisine until you see the set up and the seating. The bar and bartenders aren't bad...if only they were making menu drinks that tasted good. But they are awful, but not as awful as... More

This was one of our best meals in Charleston during a 4-day visit. Superb Vietnamese food; every dish was excellent, with care taken to make the seasonings highly flavorful. good value for the money for downtown Charleston. The cocktails were great too.

My Hanoi noodles were good but my wife's Korean rice bowl was a miss. Good friendly service, modest atmosphere, fair prices. Go there for an Asian fix while shopping on King Screet.

The curry sauce is one of my favorites in town! Try the curry shrimp or the curry laksa, both amazing! My favorite noodle dish is the Hanoi noodles and my favorite dumplings are the pork and ginger gyoza. Honestly, you can't go wrong! Very friendly service also.

My boyfriend and I ate here last Thursday night and were both incredibly disappointed in the service. We're both in the F&B industry and understand that sometimes there are mistakes made, but this was unbelievable. Upon arrival, we were not greeted. We walked upstairs and there were 4-5 empty tables but all were dirty. After several servers ignoring us, we... More
