Red Orchids is hardly your 'standard' Chinese restaurant

It's true, I like my Chinese food done, well, cheap and greasy.

Still, I realize many don't have such tolerant taste buds. And those folk generally seem to like Red Orchids in West Ashley.

I've got no evidence to share, but Charlie Magazine does. From a piece on their recent visit there:

Red Orchids China Bistro really cannot be labled “a Chinese restaurant.” How many local Chinese restaurants have you dined in with a cosmopolitan atmosphere, an impressive wine list and “where everybody knows your name?”

Red Orchids is at 1401 Sam Rittenberg Boulevard in West Ashley. (843) 573-8787.
