Indian – Masala Zone
Guest from far and wide flock to Masala Zone for the area’s best authentic Indian cuisine. The recipes here have been passed down and perfected over generations; one might forget that they are at the beach! Start off in true Indian fashion with a cup of the coconut chicken soup or with an order of the vegetable pakora (mixed vegetable fritters). The entrée selections are extensive and include a wide array of tandoori, curry, and masala offerings, along with plenty of fresh, hot naan. Be sure to save room for one of Masala Zone’s tempting desserts, like gulab jamun (homemade dumplings served with a warm, sweet syrup) or kulfi (homemade pistachio ice cream infused with saffron and cardamom). Masala Zone is open from Sunday – Thursday from 12pm – 10pm and Friday – Saturday from 12pm – 10:30pm. Call (843) 444-0325 for more information.

Not only is Redi-et the first and only Ethiopian restaurant at the beach, they are the only Ethiopian restaurant in the entire state of South Carolina! Though many might be unfamiliar with this style of cuisine, we can promise that a trip to this hidden gem is well worth your time. Many of the offerings at Redi-et are also vegetarian and vegan, making it a great alternative for the health conscious. Dig into traditional favorites like doro wat (chicken), ye beg wat (lamb), and kei wat (beef) – to name a few. All dishes here are served with fresh, fluffy rice and hot bread.
