Visiting Belfast for first time and wandered along Lisburn road to find somewhere to eat. Found Shu. Excellent food - chicken liver starter 10/10 and Pork Belly with a side of Champ delicious. Too full for dessert.

Having read the good reviews, I decided to pick here as a treat for my husband's birthday. To say I was underwhelmed would probably being kind. We had a 6pm booking & were shown promptly to our table, after being seated we were offered water...More

Met a friend here on a Friday evening & the place was really buzzing. However, food was prompt & tasted fantastic. Beautiful dining room with white linen table cloths & napkins. Brilliant food & staff. Faultless.
