Amazing food, amazing service. Highly recommend. We had the full tasting menu and it was so fabulous. Highlights were the artichoke and scallop with tofu cream, and the teriyaki cod. The recommended sparkling sake was the perfect accompaniment.

Very fun restaurant to enter (kids loved it). Great, professional service. The whole meal felt like a performance (in a good way). We had the meal in the middle. I was not blown away by the food, but parts of it were good. With all the tastings, you’re there for awhile.

Stumble through the half door down some step steps and you arrive in very cosy, intimate restaurant, serving excellent Japanese cuisine from the pan. Staff friendly and attentive, prices fair for the quality.

We were in Paris on Valentine's Day without a dinner reservation. My soon to be fiancé suggested we try our luck at Shu and managed to get a table!

The door to get in from the street is almost 3/4 size and you kind of crouch as you make your way through and down the stairs to the wonderful restaurant. It's all very cute, cosy and quirky.

The staff were just lovely and the food, oh my goodness the food. Having travelled to Japan a few times, we were not disappointed at all. We did a set menu and everything was just divine.

Would highly recommend this place to anyone!

We had no reservation but were accepted (try to make one if you can). Look for the short door because it is an entrance to a wonderful culinary experience. The chef easily addressed multiple allergies on the fly. The sign of clean cooking and a very tolerant and talented chef. We appreciate all they did for us and the gratuity was in. I way enough for the excellent service and true Omotenashi we received. Thank you again to the chef for creating a meal for my wife.
