It is a pleasure to visit this restaurant. This review encompasses several meals (lunches and dinners). There has not been one visit that has been other than excellent. Quality ingredients with superb consistent execution. Friendly efficient service with no falseness or fawning.

Thank Robert H

My husband phoned to book a table and was told they had no bookings in the restaurant but could book a table in the basement bar. Asked for a table at 8pm but was advised to book for 7.30 as it was extremely busy. When we arrived the restaurant was buzzing but as we descended into the basement we realised we were the only diners. Food was very rushed. We had breads,oils and olives, starters and mains finished by 8.30. An hour after arriving. The food was very disappointing burnt steak and unfinished food due to not being given time to eat and enjoy. The staff were friendly and on leaving at around 9pm there were 12 other diners in the basement bar which was less than half empty. Will deffo not be eating in the establishment again.

Once again another evening of delicious dining at Shu, Belfast. Chef Brian McCann is at the top of his game with a great menu, wine list and excellent staff. Last nights special of chateaubriand was beautiful on the plate and gorgeous on the palate. Service was excellent, pairing a Uruguayn Tannat with the chateaubriand was a triumph. There are a few other restaurants in Belfast producing great food but for me Shu is the one to visit.

Dined here recently with my husband (as was given a christmas gift card) and was not disappointed. On arrival the main dining area was quiet but by the time our drinks arrived it was nearly full to capacity. The service was great, the food was amazing....the asparagus risotto starter was truly divine. I would most definitely dine here again and not hesitate to recommend to anyone looking for a culinary experience not to forget.

We have been eating at Shu for years but finally thought they deserved a review after our last meal. The service was great as ever and the ambiance was lovely. We've always enjoyed this restaurant (that why we kept going back) but we particularly enjoyed some additions to the menu which included smoked eel and three different cuts of braised lamb. The eel was delicious (but could have been a bit more generous our only little complaint). We both had the braised lamb and it didn't disappoint. As usual the squid was perfect! Best we've eaten anywhere in the world. Shu is consistently excellent (inc wines) and we will keep going back.
