All of the above are reflective of the dining experience we enjoyed on our visit. It’s just a pity our so called government have not experienced it first hand instead of imposing a blanket ban on well run restaurants.

A wider selection of vegetable side orders (not all green!) would be appreciated. Cost of starters on the high side. If the owner speaks to some diners he should speak to all tables, especially at this difficult time for the hospitality sector.

Our 2nd visit in a week, should say it all! All the staff and we observed the Covid protocols with masks, sanitising etc. A table of gents leaving would have been better if they had done the same. Food outstanding, especially the squid as usual. Table booked for 4 weeks time, we can only hope. Well done Shu

Another fantastic meal guys. Congratulations on the new Shu, very impressive. Dreadful climate for hospitality at the moment but this will pass and we will return to continue our support.

The crispy squid did not disappoint... served with fresh green chillis and a choice of two dipping sauces. Delicious Shu fish pie, perfectly cooked fish and smooth mash topping which was piping hot too! To finish beautifully with a coffee and a choux bun (slightly crispy) With an amazing espresso and praline filling. Enjoyed immensely, can’t wait to go back!

The newly refurbished Shu is absolutely amazing, beautiful inside and top class food and service. The basement area ‘Juls’ is definitely going to be at the top of everyones list, cool, edgy and unlike anywhere else in Belfast.

We really like the new main dining room. Had a great lunch in a very safe environment and are very disappointed for all the staff in particular that you've had to shut down so soon after opening. We'll be back when you are back!

Shu has been our favourite Belfast rstuarant for many years so we were delighted when it reopened. Our lunch was Ok but we had some comments about the main course (an artichoke dish) - we only meant to give feedback but the restaurant credited us for the two main courses - the sort of service we love from Shu, although we hadn't asked for the credit. It is such a shame the lockdown means they have to close again so soon but we'll be back as soon as it's possible again

Glad to see that even after 34 years you are still maintaining the highest standard of service and using the best local products in excellent dishes that cater for all taste. Great new decor which sets the tone for a relaxing night Still struggle to understand why this restaurant that has all the protocols in place to protect their clients as they enjoy their experience during these troubled times is being forced to close. Controlled Restaurants are not the problem Good luck to Alan & Brian and hope to be back soon
