Shi Ki is one of the best kept secrets in Charleston, but for sushi, it is the freshest, most authentic, and delicious place I have found. It is nestled away in the corner of a small shopping center on East Bay, near the corner of Calhoun.
The same gentleman is always behind the bar skillfully preparing all sushi orders. It is clear that not only is he very good at his craft, but he takes pride in his work. The Super Crunch Roll is one of my stand-by favorites, but I usually try to get an eel roll as well. Their red snapper and yellow fin tuna rolls are beautiful savory compliments to these first two, and the spicy versions offer some nice heat without being overwhelming. The ala carte mackerel is exceptional.
I think it's pretty much impossible to go wrong at this restaurant. If you enjoy sushi, you really should do yourself a favor and check it out. You will not be disappointed.
