Stayed at the hotel next door for sisters graduation, so restaurant was very convenient after a long day. Food was fab, good size portions and reasonably priced. Not a very big restaurant but tables weren't on top of each other which was nice. For a...More

Shu Castle although a little out of the West End, does offer the style and level food quality one would expect in Mayfair! A Great selection is offered in the extensive menu covering dishes from 3 completely different regions of China! Although the price is...More

Popped around to this place last night with my partner and mother, as we fancied Chinese and this was the closest. Really impressed by the Schezuan menu; a surprising and intriguing array of offal-based dishes, and a quirky selection of seafood. We opted for the...More

I have eaten here on a number of occasions and never been let down. Huge selection including traditional Chinese cuisine and the more 'exotic' dishes not seen in many Chinese establishments. Be careful when ordering because the portions are large! I particularly like their vegetable...More
