First of all, let me start by saying that I live close by and I have ate at this place and other nearby restaurants for years. My family always came here when it was Yokosus. I’ve ate at katsus twice now. My BF and I ate there about a year or so ago. He got the sushi and I had... More

I was craving hibachi so my husband took me here. The food is everything you want it to be. It's delicious and flavorful! This is also the best sushi place I've found in the North Charleston/Goose Creek/Hanahan area. They have side seating for a quieter experience if you don't want to do the whole "cook in front of you" experience.... More

Found this restaurant using my iPhone from hotel. On arrival I found they were participating in Charleston Restaurant Week promotion with a set menu of choices for $30. Large facility, nicely appointed and I had great attentive service. Chose the Sweet Tea, 6 Crab Wontons & entree of choice of 3 different out of maybe 8 Sushi Rolls. They were... More

So last I went with some friends to Katsu Japanese Steakhouse. I was excited because with everything going on lately, I haven't been able to afford to go out and I had won a $50 gift card from a local radio station for restaurant week. When we got there, it was busy. I expected this since its restaurant week so... More

We visited during Charleston Restaurant Week. Our server, Taylor, was nice. The sushi was good-Amercanized. Out of the three rolls: spicy tuna, great California & Alaska, we liked the great California the best. The chef's specialty, Ronsanity- pictured alone- was ok. We had previously visited what must be the sister restaurant (same sushi menu) before. So, no surprises. Overall, it... More

Not a good experience at all. This was the second and last time we will go back. The food was just ok but the cook was not good. Everyone who had the white sauce was called a racist and we watched the cook across the way have 8 shots of Sake in 10 minutes. He was rude and drinking around... More

My wife and I were in town for work for about 6 months. During the first 2 months, we went to Katsu once, sometimes twice a week. The food at Katsu is perfect. We have never had any issues with the food. The rice is the only weak spot when it comes to the food. Nothing special, no vegetables, no... More

This was good but I have been to better. The chef was very good especially with the two children with us. The fried rice was plentiful but nothing special - no vegetables nor egg. Shrimp was small. Chicken teriyaki was very good. Drink service was poor. I was totally out of water.

The staff at Katsu were friendly and made every effort to make my graduation Celebration wonderful. They made quick work of adding extra people who showed up to our dinner and never made us feel like we were inconveniencing them. The food was incredible, the show was fun and made my son's eyes light up with joy. Thank you for... More

One of Charleston's best hibachi steakhouse for over 10 years! We have been entertaining with tricks on the grill to the birthday dances performed. Our sushi is cut to order and artfully presented. Enjoy our friendly- family atmosphere where you can enjoy the accommodations of a full service restaurant. It's always showtime at Yokoso!
