This Pakistani restaurant started out as a pop-up on Upper King Street in 2020, and finally got their own space last spring. With its deep purple lighting and projection screen showing footage from street life in Pakistan, Ma'am Saab has a vibe that feels like nothing else in Charleston. When it comes to food, go for the butter chicken with a silky golden curry and perfectly cooked tandoori thigh, and the lollipop chicken and qeema samosas filled with freshly ground lamb. If it’s on the menu, end your meal with the cardamom and rice kheer—it’s the perfect dessert to split with a couple friends, and the sweet yet savory pudding is one of the best treats you can find on the peninsula.
