“Perfect place to try sushi”
Reviewed 8 January 2014

Me and my boyfriend have just visited Shu.aka lovely sushi restaurant placed in the middle of Funchal. We truly have experienced a great atmosphere with cozy design and delicious food. The personnel was extremely friendly and we have really enjoyed our lunch there. I would definitely recommend this place to everyone visiting Funchal !

“Fantastic Japanese food”
Reviewed 7 January 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice - dinner and returned for a lunch. What a find. I can only echo what others have said. Beautifully inventive and delicious food. It is worth booking. First floor is great for a couple. Ask for a table near the window - away from the draft in the stairwell.. Cannot fault this. Great experience and we will definitely go back the next time we visit Madeira. Highly recommended.

“Best japanese restaurant in Funchal”
Reviewed 16 December 2013

Very innovative and delicious japanese food. We loved the blend of japanese cooking techniques and local produce ingredients. Is is highly recommended to make a reservation. For couples the first floor tables are fantastic. Wine list is short although good matching offer. Excellent service and very friendly staff.

Reviewed 15 November 2013 via mobile

The sushi at shu.aka is one of the top 3 sushiplaces i have been.

The food was fantastic, the service was good, but if they could tell what they served it will have a michelin recomadation.

Location is perfect and price is verry cheap.

“Absolutely amazing experience!!”
Reviewed 10 October 2013 via mobile

We phoned for a reservation on recommendation. We couldn't have imagined how good it would be!

We ate at 2030 on a Wednesday and there were only a couple of covers... So there was absolutely no issues with the service.... But all the staff were really friendly and attentive.

I was expecting to maybe be a bit hungry but can honestly say that we had the most amazing meal with several delicious courses, all different and beautifully presented( as a reasonably priced set meal). What made the evening was the fantastic chef who explained everything about the food and preparation.

We are reasonably experienced sushi eaters and would recommend that anyone new to sushi should eat some before coming to this restaurant to appreciate just how good it is. The squid and fusion dish is some of the best food that we've ever tasted.

We will definitely eat here again next year.
