“Great dining experience”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2014

My son steered us to Co for a different kind of Charleston cooking. We had to wait a few minutes but the Saki is fairly priced, so it wasn't bad. I ordered dac biet pho which is basically meat lovers phone. While I would have appreciated a little more meat in a $14 bowl of soup, it was truly delicious. Also, I like it spicy, and Co had some nice hot sauces I added to get the tears flowing!

My wife had Hanoi noodles with curried shrimp and my son got the drunken noodles. Both were
outstanding. I can't wait to head back. Maybe a little more meat next time?

“Delicious smokey flavor and bahn mi!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2014

We have enjoy Co's sister restaurant, CO Sushi in Myrtle Beach, and decided to try the original. My husband was eager to try the Bahn Mi and thankfully it didn't disappoint. He loved it. I had the fried rice with chicken and sauage. The dish was deliciously smokey. We highly recommend it.

“It is still noodles ---”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

I love pho so was happy to see the ratings for this place. It is a very attractive place with exposed brick and a hip vibe. The service was good. The dumplings were very good. I thought the pho was good but not great. I have had better for a fraction of the price. I guess one can expect it will be higher since it is on King Street. I just thought it was a bit much for what is still in the end a bowl of noodles with a small amount of beef on top. Noodles were sort of stuck together but taste was good. I would probably try another Asian place next time.

“I'll be Back!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2014

I sat at the Bar for lunch and was immediately greeted by a friendly server. She answered a few of my questions and was happy to share the most popular choices! She recommended the edamame spring rolls and I absolutely loved them! I also enjoyed the dumplings! Since then, I have also been back and ordered PHO which they are known for---Right on! I will certainly return to CO and tell a million of my friends how good it is! Thanks CO!
