My husband and wre riding around trying to find a late night dinner. We came upon this place by happen chance. The food was good and the wait staff were humorously professional. This would be a great place to bring large groups.

Kind of an odd layout to this place but was visiting daughter at college and location was great for us. Waitress wasn't very good and I rarely complain about service on my reviews but this just wasn't good at all. Forgot food, drinks, etc...Sushi was ok, not the best by any means but not bad either just middle of the... More

A small party of friends went here for dinner this evening to celebrate a birthday. Not much of a "show" put on by server and all the food, except the rice, was salty. Just a disappointment after having had so many great dinners at this location. I would not recommend.

We decided to try this out whilst visiting from the UK despite my husband not liking Japanese food, think it's just the sushi though. Didn't know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised, we didn't mind sharing the table. The chef was very entertaining especially as it was our first visit. Didn't realise how much good there would be and... More

I just went to Katsu (April 1, 2015) to grab some sushi with my boyfriend. Now, we normally get our sushi at Tsunami (downtown Charleston. They do an all-you-can-eat sushi special) or Fuji (at Northwoods Mall), but we weren't near either of these places. Okay -- we were sort of near Fuji, but Katsu was closer and we had gotten... More

We eat here twice a month. I love this place. Great entertainment and good sushi! The glaze on the chicken is to die for. I would like for them to make the salad presentation a tad bit better. Some of the best hibachi Charleston has to offer!

You could tell he really loved.hia job and was passionate about it. He made sure to show us all the common tricks and even made cartoon characters for the kids. It was a little slow... More

Food was ok, the chefs presentation was a little entertaining but looking over at the other chefs, they did the same exact presentation, our server Sat us down gave us our drinks, took our orders and didn't see her throughout our meal until we were leaving and needed to go boxes..I just think they could have done a better job..
