We had a superb night at Shu. Julian and David were so easy to work with in the run-up to the event and on the night the service, food and music was excellent. Thank you

The service was first class. I actually made an error with the reservation, I had booked Sat Nov 2nd, this could have been embarrassing as we had friends visiting from newry. The staff could not have been more accommodating in sorting the matter out. In no time at all, we were seated and looking at the menu.

Food was lovely as per usual, however it was a surprisingly quiet afternoon service so the wonderful staff were borderline overly attentive. That is my only critique but it didn't hinder our experience one iota!

Fantastic meal to celebrate 80th birthday. Excellent service and food. Room decor would benefit from refurbishment.

We went for dinner for my husband's 40th birthday and as usual the food was top notch as was the service. I just wanted to say an extra thank you to the staff for joining in on my birthday surprise for my husband by delivering pre-made up envelopes to him throughout the night. You really helped with his surprises and we are very grateful!

We were originally meant to sit upstairs with a table near the door. It was so loud that we asked to be moved, we are so happy we did as we were moved downstairs. The atmosphere was perfect and you could actually hear each other talk, the girls serving us were fabulous! Food this time round was disappointing- no presentation on the pate looked thrown together. We had meatballs for a little nibble and tasted like processed meat- hard and no taste, We’ve had these before and they didn’t taste like that, then my husband got the prawns with his steak- he said they were like mush and couldn’t eat them. We have been to shu a good few times but get the feeling now it’s always hit or miss. Sometimes exceptional, sometimes extremely poor. This time the food let it down but we thank the amazing girls who served us.

We were placed at a table downstairs which was not good as it was a mix of noisy groups at the bar. Unfortunately we won’t be attending again unless we can get a table in the restaurant, not a bar which also has some people trying to have a romantic dinner. having dinner! On the positive side. The food and service was good.

Food was great however after being left the dessert menu we were left waiting 25 minutes to try and order and despite trying to get the attention of several waiting staff we were ignored. So we had to go to the till to get the attention of the waiter and were so annoyed that we left. While I accept it was busy it ruined the experience.
