Chinese, Japanese, Hibachi & More: Top Asian Restaurants in Myrtle Beach Area
Myrtle Beach diners, are you getting tired of the same old thing?
Sure seafood is succulent, barbecue is a southern delicacy and burgers are bountiful around the Grand Strand, but if you’d rather try something a bit different tonight perhaps a bit of Asian fusion cuisine is what you’re looking for.
If you want creative curries, sizzling Szechuan, and succulent sushi, we have the list you seek: The Top 10 Asian restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area.
Yes, it’s a buffet, but this one is both affordable and extensive, and it has simple sushi such as California Rolls on it. I’ve also found yummy American foods there such as a whole side of steamed salmon.
Blue Elephant Thai Cuisine
The owner uses exacting and exhaustive preparation methods to create his lovely dishes. He also grows his own seasonal herbs and vegetables.
King Kong Sushi
Helping spark a sushi revolution in Myrtle Beach restaurant scene, King Kong is the reigning king of local sushi spots for many folks. With locations in Carolina Forest and a newly-renovated version at Broadway at the Beach, simply put King Kong never disappoints. From creative rolls to tasty hibachi, this place has it all.
This long-standing hibachi restaurant is popular for a reason — it’s great food and family-friendly atmosphere! Try either of the two locations and you won’t be disappointed, but be sure and go early, it can get packed.
Jay's Asian Fusion Restaurant
This one is out of the way for oceanfront visitors and dwellers, but for those who are golfing or living out near Longs in the western part of Horry County, Jay’s is on their cell phone speed dials. The sushi is excellent and beautiful, and the extensive menu offers Chinese, Japanese and Thai dishes. They also have a private room you can reserve for large groups.
What they lack in ambiance is made up for with well-prepared Thai home cooking such as Chicken Larb, Drunken Noodles and Papaya Salad.
In Myrtle Beach time, Bangkok House has been around forever, which is about 20 years. Diners receive consistently delicious and inexpensive food. My favorite is the lunch specials with their ginger soup: If you have a cold, this is just the sinus-clearing remedy you’ll crave.
E Noodles & Co.
There used to be two locations, but this is the only one left. What’s great about E Noodles is they take their dishes a half-step above typical Asian fare (try the crispy-fried tofu), but they don’t take it up so far that it’s too pricey.
Indo Thai Sushi Hibachi
An Indonesian couple own these restaurants that are locals’ favorites for sushi, especially the happy hour sushi deals. Proprietor Laura Heriyadi’s house-made sauces are incredible.
If you’re looking for something a little more upscale and modern (aka “hip”) check out this great sushi spot at The Market Common. This small, but charming restaurant offers a great selection of rolls, Vietnamese cuisine, noodles, soups, and appetizers. Known locally as a good happy hour spot, you’ll find great specials on sushi and drinks during the afternoon and awesome food come dinner time.
Lil Tokyo Steakhouse & Sushi Bar
This Japanese sit-down eatery at Coastal Grande Mall is a convenient place to take the family for a fun hibachi experience after a day of shopping. But if …
Jimmyz Original Hibachi House
Owner Jimmy Miller has created a quick-serve hibachi house that attracts customers of all ages who crave his beef, chicken and fresh seafood hibachi meals, plus creative wraps, salads and a small sushi menu. It’s quick, cheap, fresh and oh-so-addictive. He also makes his mom’s recipe for Beef Bulgogi.
