We ordered a dinner to be delivered through Grub Hub from ShiKi. The dinner was supposed to be delivered at 6:30. We called at 7:00 for an update and was told that it would be delivered from 7:05-7:15. We called at 7:30 and they told...us it would be delivered in 11 minutes. At 7:47 Grub Hub cancelled our order. We will never order through Grub Hub and unfortunately not through Shiki.More

Shi Ki is located in a strip mall, but do not let that fool you. Its Japanese cuisine and atmosphere are as close to Tokyo as you will get in Charleston. A small, intimate restaurant, Shi Ki provides every Japanese favorite from Nigiri, Sashimi, to...Tempora and Udon. I must try for those who love Japanese food.More

Shi Ki is not open for dining in during this Covid pandemic but they do deliver and provide take-out. My wife and I wanted sushi so we tried Shi Ki for the first time. I have been fortunate enough to have had sushi in many...places around the world and I have always had a warm spot in my heart for Chef Akio's little place in the Inner Sunset in San Francisco. Well Akio, you have a competitor in Chef Park here at Shi Ki. I had the sushi and sashimi combo as well as the tempura soba. My wife ordered the green mussels appetizer and the shrimp tempura appetizer. Everything was delicious! The sashimi was just magnicent - the hamachi was melt-in-your-mouth delicious. It's been many years since I have had sushi and sashimi this good. We will be going back! There is also plenty of parking for Shi Ki which is a rare thing in Charleston.More

Skip all the Hibachi places. This little spot on East Bay St. has a great selection of sushi and sashimi as well as other dishes. They have a good selection of Japanese beer including one of my favorites Orion which is from Okinawa. Tempura was...light and delicious. All the sashimi was fresh and tasty.More

This restaurant is tucked away in a strip mall off East Bay. It is a very simple restaurant, very clean and awesome food. It is family run and they take pride in their cleanliness, presentation of food and service.

It doesn't look like much from outside or inside, but the food is great. My parents and I got different teriyaki's while my sister got sushi. We all loved the food we got. I especially loved the food. We came to Charleston for a vacation...and all the "southern comfort" food can be too much after too many days of it.More

I will admit upon entrance, I was not all that impressed. The interior is fairly nondescript and it was much smaller in size than I had envisioned. However, we sat down at the bar and were greeted by the chefs. They were friendly and open...to recommendations. We made a few suggestions and created our own rolls. The chefs wanted feedback and treated us to a cucumber breeze roll which was the perfect after dinner roll as it was almost like a dessert type roll. I've been to a lot of sushi places and this is by far one of the best!!! Sushi and service are excellent!!! Definitely will be making a return trip.More

From Seattle and this sushi restaurant gets it right. From basics to Toro eyc. Shi Ki has it all. We shared the love boat and were stuffed. Large assortment of hand rolls, nigiri snd sashimi. Decent prices considering CHARLESTON and friendly staff. A must for...sushi lovers.More

What a nice surprise! We wanted to have Sushi and wanted to search Charleston NC We stopped at Shi Ki 334 E Bay Family owned about 6 tables plus a Sushi bar. Owner Park Hae Gon was at the helm for lunch. I noticed a...line of regular customers floating in, all known to the Chef by name. Very nice to see. We both ordered the Sushi Sashimi lunch special beginning with Gyoza and Sunomono, both done perfectly. The Sushi was fresh! You will love this place. It’s like the neighborhood sushi bar I was use to back home on LI NY. See photosMore

My husband, 10 year old daughter, her 10 year old friend, and I had dinner here the first night we were in town. Another person used the word "unpretentious" in their review and that caught my attention. I second that sentiment. This is a substantially...small and somewhat disorderly restaurant but the wait staff (which as far as I can tell comprises of 1 lady) is incredibly attentive and has a wonderful sense of humor. Our sushi was some of the best I've ever tasted. We would definitely return.More
