Service was prompt and friendly, food was presented beautifully and was superb. Three us us started with beetroot risotto and followed it with plaice for the main... More

My wife and I had the business lunch at Shu on Nov 11--she had a smoked salmon appetizer, and I had a pork belly appetizer that was served with a chilli pickle and a slice of toast--the pork was perfectly cooked, thinly sliced and delicious on the bread. My wife had the plaice as her entree--it was delicious, as was... More

Booked a table but could only get one downstairs. However, waiter was very attentive during our meal. Food itself was lovely and is good value for money. Favourite part, fabulous wine list! I will be back for the wine and the contemporary twist on modern day classic dishes!

Lovely meal at Shu. It's a pity that we left it late too book as all tables in the main restaurant were full and we ended up eating in the bar downstairs. The food was very good- the monkfish was especially nice. Our waitress was lovely and the service was excellent.

Booked about 2 weeks in advance for a Sat night reservation and it was well worth it. Even though the restaurant was full to capacity the service was impeccable and first class. Our Austrian waitress was knowledgable, attentive, friendly and efficient. Food was of a high standard; salt & chilli squid was lovely, as was the Salmon. The steaks cooked... More

Last time I visited Shu a few years ago, food was great but the service left a lot to be desired - snooty and efficient to the point of feeling pushed to leave and unwelcome. Hence why I didn't return until now. My recent visit was a completely different story! The staff were exceptional - friendly but not intrusive, efficient... More

Took a business colleague for lunch and had the 2 course special. The celeriac soup an chicken risotto where superb. Service was spot on despite it being a very busy Friday lunchtime. For under £13 a head for lunch.....what a deal.
