Everything was beautiful. The only way I think it could be improved would be 6 dishes for$30.
Food was absolutely delicious and our server was very friendly! My only comment is that the servings were quite small (though not outrageously expensive). I think next time I would go for the ten course degustation.
Unique food with a twist. Foodie's paradise. Will be back
The 10 course vegan degustation was amazing, and service was top notch.
Good and different vegan food on the Tuesday. Fantastic staff and service, really interesting and unique set up and decorations.
Great for a festive occasion, especially with a group.
Thanks for your efforts SHU, WE felt like VIP , so personal, so effortless, You and your team did oh-so-well😍
From start to end, it felt like we were on a journey, where each dish, beat the one before, fully exceeded our every expectation, delivering powerfully like New Zealand's prime minister Jacinda Adern, concise, influential, simple and leading by following no one.
I booked and thought the vegan taster was unavailable and was pleasantly surprised to find out it available Wednesday night at well five courses for $25 is a fantastic value. it is a rolling menu that changes each week and the quality of the food is exceptional. Will be recommending to my vegan friends as a venue to check out unique dishes for very reasonable prices.
Amazing vegan degustation at a very reasonable price!
Amazing food. What a breath of fresh air! Definitely going back!
We had the vegan degustation and was really impressed by the creative flavour combinations - silken tofu and passionfruit! Amazing! Makes me want to try out the Vegan experimental nights on Tuesdays.
The staff were terribly unprofessional (at one point a staff member who was serving our table was chewing food). Another was clearly unenthused about serving us and both were visibly frustrated with us for taking a little time to order. This is the second time I've been here and I experienced the same problems, with the same staff. Won't be back again. A shame because the food is great - as is the aesthetic.
Me and my mum both had a fantastic time and will probably come again in the near future
Came for the vegan menu. Delicious. Lovely staff and lovely place - highly recommend
It was a nice restaurant but the food was a bit of a miss. We ordered off the menu and none of the dishes really stood out. Very good value but would not go back again.
This quaint and cute venue was everything I hoped it would be. The food was amazing and the $25 vegan experimental dinner is an absolute bargain. The food was adventurous but delicious. I would recommend this vegan experience to anyone
Nice tasting food although small quantity.
I was a bit disappointed that the food came out so slowly. We booked over a week in advance for mother's day and said we were hoping to be finished in 1.5 hours. But ended up staying 3 hours because there was only 1 chef? and a full restaurant.
The waiter was lovely and kept apologising.
We went To Shu for my 50th on a weds night, we had amazing 10 course vegan degustation with matching wines. Lovingly made, fresh, creative dishes and fabulous wine. Lovely service from Shu personally. Was special evening!
Great value for money
I’ve been here a couple of times and will always be back
The service is impeccable as I haven’t ever had service like it
Keep the good food coming
The $25 vegan experimental menu I tried was absolutely delicious and great value for money, highly recommended.
The decor and lighting was beautiful and tranquil. The aroma from the oil diffusers was also relaxing. The service was as expected. The food was okay except for the noodle dish. There was not much choice when it came to drinks and the music was way too loud.
The food was great and the staff were fabulous at explaining all the experimental dishes. We loved the whole thing and it’s great value for money.
Servings were small. The best part of our 5 course was the dessert. After the 5 course we had to order more food. It was really small
The food is so creatively presented and delicious. It's such a fun place to eat
Food was exquisite, wine and beverage choice excellent, staff friendly and great service - but suggest owner and others ducking into the side line for regular cigarette breaks gives a bad look
Actually such a good time! It was so lovely to have a cool thing put together for vegans! I've recommended to several friends already :)
Lovely hip and colourful atmosphere.
Delicious food (bit too spicy for me at times) think the soba noodles with zuchinni and persimmon was my fav! The cashew cheese fig was pretty awesome too. In short, loving the experimentation.
Things started out well with a pretty and delicious first offering but the food went sharply down hill at each new dish. It was not busy but were waiting for 20 minutes or more between courses. The quirky fitout didn't make up for this lackadaisical attention, the waiter had time to drink wine and laugh with a friend while me and my date were literally checking our watches in between courses
I met Shu. Beautiful man beautiful restaurant. Food will make you feel special. I only want it all to get better; up and up. Rainbow marbles stripper pole in the bathroom needs a clean, poly plastic or clear vinyl render and then a buff and shine. xoxoxoxoxoxoxo
Absolutely loved it! Went for the experimental vegan night and it was delicious!
yea man noice. would recommend. bring your m9's and your family.
We got the vegan 10 course which cost $140 with 1 drink each and left feeling hungry and not satisfied. Some of the food was pretty tasty but majority was... ok? Definitely not worth $140 for 2 people
Every time I go to Shu, and it’s been around half a dozen over five years, whether it’s for a dinner for two or a function of a few, I am always excited by the tantalizing variety of flavors and textures that I’m offered.
Always get the full degustation menu it’s brilliant!
They cater without fuss for all sorts of eating preferences and the service is happy, effective and available just when you need help.
The food was delicious and innovative, which was as advertised! But we left hungry, and got a snack on the way home. For $25 I am not expecting a banquet, but the portions were very small, and came quite quickly. So what we planned as a semi fancy spontaneous date night ended up being a quick series of small bites, with hot chips on the way home.
We were offered options from the a-la-carte menu before dessert, which we declined, as we didn't know if those portions would be sized up, and couldn't justify another $20 and then also a serve of chips on the way home.
Shu was fantastic again! This was my second time dining here in 2 months, and it was just as impressive!
The menu was completely different to last time, and just as delicious.
We had the 10 course vegan degustation, and every dish was a work of art.
The service was superb as well.
I've been going to Shu upwards of 4 years now, and continually return for not only the amazing food, but also the atmosphere and their warm welcomes every time. It's my go to for a special occasion and never fails to meet and surpass my expectations. They'll continue see me again and again!
The 10 course vegan degustation was delicious. My husband enjoyed it even not being vegan.
It was quite noisy so I had trouble hearing people at our table.
Quirky atmosphere. Thank you
Was a bit disappointed with the food, although some of the dishes are good and interesting. But not all of them!
Bought my boyfriend a vegan degustation for Christmas and it was incredible. The restaurant fitout was super fun and unexpected and the food was amazing. It was perfect.
Lovely food and good service. A great find for vegan options. The degustation is recommended.
