“Consistently good with great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 3, 2013

This is one of the most consistently good restaurants in Belfast over the last number of years, service is always good and the staff are very friendly. The menu and quality of food are excellent.

“Could not fault you!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013 via mobile

Went here at the end of August for our anniversary night out, not been for ages but wasn't disappointed. Had an amazing meal, presentation and taste was exceptional. Had full 3 courses and each one excellent. Sat downstairs which was but concerned about initially but there was a great atmosphere and enjoyed the music once the dj started. Service was very good, very attentive staff. Only thing was the latte was little milky for my taste but maybe should have gone for cappuccino. Thanks for a great evening.

“Just missed the spot on my night.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

This is a really nice restaurant and the service was excellent. I came away with two gripes though that have stopped me going back for a while now.

1) The wine list is, in my opinion, just a little bit too expensive.
2) Our steaks weren't great.

But will be back soon as all of the good opinions here can't be wrong....

“Don't shu but SHOUT”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

My fiancé and I enjoyed a lovely meal here recently , read reviews and quite rightly were tempted, had 2 starters 2 mains and for a vegetarian like myself was fantastic , menu original and well executed.
Service attentive without being intrusive,
Only surprise is the low trip Advisor rating, we are both huge food lovers and have eaten in many restaurants in the city and Shu is now along with Zen on our go to list for pleasure dining and entertaining on business , if you are debating trying then do your taste buds a favour and go

“Great food, even better service.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 28, 2013

We couldn't get the main dining room because it was full booked downstairs. When we arrived I was glad we got downstairs, it's much more private.
The head waitress was excellent and very attentive. We had the 2 course meal for two and it comes with a bottle. It doesn't have the choice of the full menu but still good.
We both had the slow cooked shorthorn beef and it couldn't have been better.
We will be back.
