    We went to try the Shu Lankan menu. Unfortunately it seems that the Shu Lankan menu wasn't available but still offered to us. We ordered it and put first course came as expected. Course 2, 3 and 4 were all completely different to the menu. All were variations from the main 10 course Sichuan menu it seems, although the dishes weren't explained to us. We would have been fine to try different dishes the problem was that no one told us what we were eating or that the menu was basically not running! We also got served a disappointing wonton dish that unfortunately was not cooked so we were left with uncooked wonton wrappers! Sad.

    Between the decor and presentation of the food, Shu is a visual delight. Every dish was unique and had us excited for the next course!

    Enjoyed a lovely meal in a lovely setting with superb service. Over priced for the small portions though, none of us were particularly full up.

    Heard so much about this place and we finally got to go. I must say I was a little let down. Service was great, atmosphere was very nice, however I was let down by the food and drinks. I got the blood orange non alcoholic drink, and it was extremely overpriced for the size, and the drink lacked flavour. The food overall was good, but not the "wow" I was expecting.
