Mama Kim, a petite Korean woman with the strength to take on Charleston and become a surrogate mother to all who dine here, has a memorable slogan, “Rock out with your wok out.” And rock it she does with her interminable energy and genuinely warm hospitality.

Korean grill with sushi, Korean beef bul-go-gee and bee-bim-pop. And don't forget Mama Kim Brown. She's the reason you'll come back again and again.
