I lived in Charleston for a few years and this was the only Asian market I went to. There is a limited selection, if a selection at all this the CHS area. H and L had everything I needed to cook any Asian cuisine but sometimes they were out of stock on certain brands that I like. They have a wide variety of many items, fresh produce, spices, canned goods, and they sell meat. I never bought their meat products in the deli because the quality didn't look fresh. The staff is really helpful. If you need help finding an item and you really don't know where to look; just ask, it will be faster because this store is big and it will take you awhile to find what you're looking for. I would highly recommend coming here for your ethnic cooking needs. You'll most likely find what you're looking for. I've never been to the restaurant in here.
I was very impressed with Lucky Oriental Market. I recently moved here for a job relocation and was a little weary of what kind of good asian markets I'd find out in North Charleston. I was happy to find Lucky Oriental Market mainly because they carried a lot of houseware items that helped me get situated with my new home. I lost a lot of cutlery and dishware during a recent divorce and during my move so I was in real need of a whole kitchen make-over. Thankfully the little mini-mart-esque store had a lot to offer. The rice was the cheapest I've seen and I was again impressed by the wide variety of items the store had for sale. I'd recommend to co-workers and anyone else I meet who is in need of good asian cuisine ingredients or, like me, household items (I even bought batteries there!)
Mr.Murray's meat is real good!I was raise up on his food.Now that I'm older,I'm buying his meat.His store has Jesus blessing all around and family love cause they all work together in store as one.
