The other day, a couple of us stopped by for an early dinner since we were already on King Street - with more restaurants than you can count - and since we both love Asian, particularly Vietnamese, food and since this place is so highly rated out of the hundreds of Charleston restaurants. We were not disappointed. The restaurant itself is in a narrow old reworked building, with a drink/food bar up front, a few tables farther back, including one kind of communal table that we've found elsewhere in Charleston, and more tables upstairs, which opens at 5pm. We sat at the long table downstairs, and a few people eventually joined us. It's nice to be sociable, particularly in an energetic town like Charleston. It was Happy Hour and a few small dishes, plus some drinks, were very reasonably priced. I had a big carafe of sake which was served cold - perfect. Service, by the bartender and a couple of other of the wait staff was excellent. We had four small dishes, including some spring rolls, gyoza, bahn mi and outstanding wings (photos). All real, real good, spicy but not too hot. Instead, you can splash on some of their special hot sauces and burn yourself to a crisp on your own. Wonderful stuff. I also saw on the menu a pho ga (or ga pho) - traditional Vietnamese chicken noodle soup - plus some other extremely attractive items, so there's no question that, the next time in Charleston, we'll be back... and will probably eat upstairs, where it's less busy and lighter.
