Located in a strip mall in Carolina Forest, this local joint has a welcoming atmosphere, albeit well-worn furnishings. The menu has an impressive array of sushi, maki and rolls, as well as appetizers and small plates. Even my mother, sushi-averse and unsure about our going there, was able to find a great dish - tempura shrimp with chili sauce. This... More

Every time that I go to King Kong, I expect fresh sushi/sashimi and quality service and once again, I was not disappointed. Three of us shared edamame and the small plate of duck appetizers, the latter being excellent. This was followed by the sashimi deluxe and two rolls which we managed to finish since everything was fresh and delicious. In... More

I was visiting my family in the MB area and we all decided on sushi for supper. Being from the area they suggested king kong and I can understand why. We walked in to the front door and I will say the entrance area left little to brag on. When you walk in the hostess stand and waiting area is... More

Some of the best sushi I have ever had! You could go here 100 times and never have the same thing twice. Super fresh, and made to order. Very good place for lunch. Been here 3 or 4 times, and have never had a bad experience. Very, very good sushi!

Easily my favorite sushi restaurant. They have over 100 different rolls (around 120) and all of the ones I have tried are delicious. I have been to Myrtle Beach three years in a row for my birthday, and this restaurant is the one constant. Rest assured if you like sushi you will live this place. This time they had rolls... More

Having being here several times over the past 2 years, I must admit this is by far the best sushi, asian, japanese restaurant sans the hibachi in town. With a great staff and a laid back environment even my 80 year old father-in-law who likes sushi loves this place. Oh, I already said too much. let's keep it between you... More

We went here three years ago. It is just as good, if not more fresh today than then. We all love sushi & their staff was friendly, efficient, & more than willing to help. Our drinks stayed full and we even had friends who aren't as into sushi as we are comment on the quality. The variety is large &... More
