This was a recommended restaurant by a young 'foodie' and it met our expectations completely. Shu is located away from city central but it was easy to find by our cab driver. The food was delicious and the service was friendly and attentive. We were dining in a small group and the noise level was subdued so that we could... More

I have visited Shu on quite a few occasions and have always been pleased with the standard of food and service. We had our anniversary meal last night and I have to say I was disappointed by the experience. When we arrived we were shown to our table and asked what we would like to drink before we had even...

I have dined at Shu several times but every time my experience just gets better and better. It was a miserable rainy evening but the welcome, service, and food was excellent. Always seasonal and local ingrediants really appeals to me and the fact the servers know their produce really impressed me. Excellent

Ate here with some work colleagues a couple of weeks ago. I was quite surprised by how busy the restaurant was for a Monday night but I suppose given the quality of food, in retrospect it shouldn't be surprising. We chose from the set menu which offers 3 courses plus coffee or tea for 29 pound. I opted for duck... More

I took a party of eight people on a busy Friday night. From the moment we entered the staff were attentive, considerate and explained any queries we had. They made us feel most welcome. The menu choices were quite diversified those selections we made were all excellent. The wine list was good and generally not expensive. The service was extremely... More

Poor service, food masquerading as being 'fancy', overpriced are a few of the things I could mention. There's a lot more wrong with this place than right.

Food was excellent and as restaurant got busier, service was a little shabby. Mushroom soup, squid, tuna & fishcake starters all excellent. Sirloin, lamb, turbot and beef mains also superb. Cheeseboard was interesting if slightly unusual. Would recommend.

We were invited last night to a private dinner party at Shu. We are group that were visiting Belfast for a business meeting. The food and service were outstanding. Innovative offerings including a white miso dessert that reminded me of a creme brulee. I had the cod for my entree-well prepared and very fresh. Really top notch restaurant in all... More

If you have not been go! The food is top notch, the staff are professional. It's a great wee restaurant not that big so you need to book in advance for a decent time slot. Worth a visit.
