This is a classic "don't judge a book by it's cover" situation. The location, in a strip mall with a Food Lion, isn't great for ambiance; the interior decor is pretty run of the mill; the service isn't bad but not exemplary but the food...oh, the food! I can't say I have ever had a bad meal here. The menu... More

Server was rude to start, window sill was covered in old food and we were first table of that day, food was mediocre at best, and server said any single hibachi was covered with groupon for 2 people but then up charged and said oh it only covers $22 total. And veggies on hibachi plates and the crab Rangoon were... More

Every time we come here we've been greater warmly, waited on attentively and with a smile or a kind word. Our 5 year old wanted to use chop sticks so they banded them together and he went to town! The sushi combos they have are terrific, their desserts enticing, and the price is pretty good considering the talent of the... More

Every Single Time my wife and I want great sushi/sashimi we go to BUSHIDOs! We love it there; it's just a nice quaint neighborhood spot with a great atmosphere to boot. Last time we were there we tried the squid appetizer (on a recommendation from KAT our waitress...OH..you MUST ASK FOR HER ... she is DA BOMB!) and it was... More

My wife and I have been customers of Bushido's for many years. We were both some of the first customers to complete the Spicy Tuna Roll challenge. I keep my commemorative Japanese headband in my center console, just in case I decide to visit. We used to love the sushi when the original owners ran the restaurant (when it was... More

Food is good and service is quick. Pricing is on par with other Charleston sushi restaurants. Recommend if you're in the West Ashley area.

I like their Sushi and Deluxe Sashimi is enough for two, not a fan of their Habachi. Good take out. We eat there several times a year, next to Home Depot so we stop by,

I went here because I bought a groupon. The food was excellent & service was good. Restaurant was nicely decorated & menu looked a little fancy. They have a bar, booths, & tables. They apparently have some type of Warrior challenge as j saw a wall full of pictures of people who completed it. The bathroom isn't the greatest but... More

We had the sushi-sashimi dinner and our friends had the sushi dinner. Each is easily enough for two people to share. All of the fish was excellent quality and very fresh. We will continue going there for sushi. Last but not least, Katelyn is an outstanding waitress. BTW, there's an older review about no alcohol that's no longer appropriate.

Oh well every once in a while a "Groupon" comes your way and it is tempting! Had gone to this establishment last year and it was average! Went back the other day compliments of Groupon to see if it was any better under new ownership. Upon entering saw a sign pasted on the door, no alcohol beverages and I assumed... More

The Kitchen . This is where the magic begins! We don't just cook food, we prepare meals! We prepare each meal with enthusiasm, energy and passion, especially tailored to your very specific needs. In order to achieve this, each kitchen staff goes through an extensive training program and as a result, you can expect great meals consistently, each time you visit us! Who trains them? Our head chef of course! He not only has a Bachelor's Degree in Business and Economics, but also has over 17 years of experience cooking and preparing Japanese food. Throughout his years in the Japanese Restaurant industry, he has learned to combine traditional and westernized style of sushi and hibachi, a winning recipe for an exceptional and unforgettable dining experience. The Front . Our restaurant is your restaurant! Bushido is West Ashley's own! We are your neighborhood Cheers! Our front of the house staff are trained not just to greet you, but to welcome you home! Each time you come through our front doors, you're sure to see a friendly, smiling face, eager to serve you, know how your day's been, and find out how we can make it a better one for you. Our goal is to make sure your time with us is well spent! The Service . It's hard to believe that a restaurant of only five (5) years has been able to lay the foundation of a full-service Japanese Restaurant for everyone else to follow. Bushido Japanese Restaurant offers Dine-In, Take-Out, Catering and Delivery! Not only that, Bushido is South Carolina's first and only Japanese Restaurant that offers Online Ordering!! It's a wonder how all these years internet has been a way of life and yet no one has made an honest effort to make use of it, until now. With a simple click of a button, your orders will be ready to be picked up or delivered. And now with today's hi-tech smartphones, you can order your favorite Japanese food directly from your browser. If you can't come to us, we'll come to you!! Put us to work and you'll see what it's all about! We can make any sushi roll your heart desires! If it's not on the menu, tell us and we'll make it. The Promise . There is only one thing that a restaurant can rely on for its success...Its customers. And that is why we cannot take them for granted. Each Bushido customer is a blessing to us and we will strive to make it worth their whiles. We will be honest in the way we do business and we will be diligent in the way we serve you. That's the Bushido promise!
