Best sushi that we have had in the US in a long time! Small restaurant, not fancy, but absolutely fantastic food and service. Well worth the trip plus easy parking in front.

The sushi is fresh and just delicious. The couple that owns it truly care about your experience. They have some sushi that even comes out of the oven, hot to your table. They have many different varieties of specialized unique rolls. I took my boyfriend here for his first time. He was so impressed. It's definitely our favorite place for... More

We approached Shi Ki from Washington street and had to walk around the block to the front of the Ansonborough Shopping Center as the entrance is on East Bay Street. It was small and unassuming inside and we were given a table near the back with what seemed to be a temporary storage area just behind us. It would have... More

Fresh Uni! Amazing preparation. Fresh and delicious! The location is in a nondescript shopping center but the inside is clean and cozy. Service is very good. As good as the best in NYC.

Very glad to have a restaurant like this in peninsular Charleston. Run by nice folks who seem to be dedicated to their business, this is an unpretentious, no-frills sushi restaurant with reasonable prices and good food. It is located in the same small shopping center on East Bay as Ted's Butcherblock (and previously Blockbuster videos). We enjoyed our sushi and... More

We really enjoyed our meal here. The sushi was excellent, the service friendly but discreet. Great ginger sauce they do - new one on me. Make the effort if you're in the neighbourhood. Sadly, we left the next day.

The sushi was delicious and really great value for money. What took us by surprise was the absolutely exceptional ginger sauce they dress their salads with: they make it in house, it's absolutely to die for. We had it on salad, broccoli, even on sushi. The lady who runs it and served us was so lovely - shame we only... More

If you're looking for good sushi with no frills, look no further. Good sushi, good service, and fair prices. Definitely worth a trip. Two of us had four rolls- spicy tuna, tuna avocado, shrimp tempura and spicy red snapper. All of them were solid. Definitely with a trip.

Our tuna and yellowtail sashimi was FROZEN. Woodbridge wine and cold edamame. It also took 20 minutes to get. Were they defrosting it?? Totally bummed.

Good quality, fresh ingredients, clean interior, very friendly staff. I would go again. My favourite Sushi that night: super crunch roll. My GF's favourite Sushi that night: house special roll.
