If you are in Melbourne you simply must do the vegan degustation - even if you are a carnivore :)

Service was impeccable.
Food was some of the best I've had the pleasure eating as a vegan.
The wine was perfect.
My partner had an amazing time for her birthday.
It was a first for us both doing a disgustation and we loved every moment of it.
We are both very excited to come back and enjoy the beautiful vibe, food and staff that is Shu.
9/10.
Wonderful work guys.
Thank you so much.

We loved our evening at Shu! The vegan degustation menu was brilliant - and we're not even vegetarian! Very reasonably priced, too. The cocktails were very enticing, the decor was creative and added a great vibe, the service was excellent and the owner was very friendly.

I am certainly impressed by the variety of dishes and different taste of each dish. all very delicate spicy yet subtle. What's more being a non vegetarian the vegan experience totally impressed and convinced me that vegetarian food can be delicious. Loved the herb garden entree.

Whilst this degustation menu is near perfect I would personally like to finish this up with a little carb I.e a small fried rice or steamed mixed veg rice or noodles.

Nevertheless, this restaurant is highly recommended. Kudos to the chef!

I dined at Shu with 2 friends and we had the 10 course vegan degustation and then shared the avocado cheesecake for dessert. The degustation was only $50pp and a total steal. The cheesecake was far beyond what I expected! I would highly recommend Shu to friends and family.

I love going to SHU. It's a treat for your tastebuds. Shu is Chinese food, but not like you've grown up with. Shu's take on the food he learned to cook growing up is modern, zesty varied and fun. Groovy without being snobby, foodie without being fussy, I've never had a bad meal there and it's a quite spectacular eating experience. Do the tasting menu. It's essential.

My partner and I had heard great reviews of the 10 course detestation and we weren't disappointed. Staff was friendly, the ambience is relaxed with quirky but fun decor. The food was exceptional and affordable.

it was dead, this should have been a red flag to walk back out, but considering how half of the reviews were rating it a must try, we sat down. I ordered the meat degustation and my friend ordered the vegan. 10 courses and 8 were not edible, 2 were ok. either too spicy, too salty or too bland. my meat degustation included 3 vegan dishes??? don't waste your time here

WE had the 10 course vegan degustation - all of which was delicious. The selection of beers was also very good but unfortunately they had run out of vegan wines (please stock more !). The only downside was the harsh decor with hard surfaces all around which made ambient noise very loud. Also, the teen music playing was not well selected considering most of their clientele were middle-aged.

Food was great, perhaps slightly over priced. Service was also good, however this restaurant severely lacked atmosphere, we were the only ones in the restaurant on a Friday night.

Shu has funky decor, great service and mixed food quality. The eggplant plant rolls were dry however the tofu in spicy sauce was tasty with good texture. We ordered a second tofu dish which was bland.

weird joint with terrible service. had to ask for everything, even another drink. and when id ask, she get me one, then everyone else at the table would have to ask without her ever asking "can i get another drink for you". it went on all night. it was comically bad. ontop of all that I ordered the prawns and had to de-shell them myself. jees i hate that! i know they wont read this or care so not even sure why im wasting my time.

Really Great food and cool atmosphere, would have been nice if the waiter was just a little bit more attentive as he seemed a little distracted even though there were only 5 people in the restaurant. However he was lovely. We both had the Degustation which was great.

Looking for a unique and interesting place to eat? Here it is. Good menu, good food (without being fantastic) and a fun place to be. Get away from the Brunswick Street crowd and find this place. It's not hard, it's lit up in neon!
