Really enjoyed the experience. The food was all delicious. Standout dishes for me were: salmon sahshimi, pork belly, ox cheek bao and rabbit katsu. The only disappointing one was the duck gyoza (from the 12 or so things we tried) as it was not particularly flavoursome. Service was friendly but a bit hurried at times. Ambience was nice and buzzy

Loved the food and very good service, would happily eat there again. Loved the pork, aubergine and of course the French toast. The restaurant is very loud, my only small complaint.

The food was great and the atmosphere was fine. However, We were rushed out of restaurant which put a bit of downer on the meal.

I had the tasting menu last time and amazed how all food were very tasty so brought my friends this time before going to musical. We had pre theatre menu which is great for the value. I have Asian background and very fussy about ‘Asian fusion food’ but Shack-Fuyu’s food never disappointed me so far. You can order any dishes and I’m sure the taste would be incredible. Every dish is super well thought: the flavour of source, how they cook meat and how they put texture together are amazing. The staff are professional. Please don’t forget to order the French toast even if you are full. You cannot miss it.

We had an early reservation and ate from the pre-theatre menu. The atmosphere was nothing special but we were there early, I'm sure it comes alive later on.
The food was delicious but there was a big discrepancy in the size of the dishes from the pre-theatre menu. Most noticeably the vegetarian option of miso aubergine which was meant to be a 'large' plate, was really tiny (almost ridiculously so). Especially compared to the salmon large plate, which was very generous at more than twice the size! It was all really tasty but did leave our vegetarian friend feeling like it was very poor value for money, understandably so.

food felt not refined or fresh. Ceviche was served warm, left me with a very strong unpleasant after taste. Felt it was more of a peruvian fusion than japanese. Waitors were difficult to get ahold of and always seemed busy. Left the restaurant feeling sick.

This place was amazing - the food was incredible, we both tried something new, something we thought we might not like and it was amazing! Prawn toast is not your ordinary dry Prawn toast it was delicious and I will be thinking about it until I go again. Tek our waitress was so helpful, explaining all dishes and recommending some of the best dishes they have - and they are the best. Go. Enjoy! You won't be disappointed.

Fantastic food. Wings and aubergine highlights, piglet belly disappointing.

We asked our waiter (who asked the manager) if we could do the tasting menu but swap in an item. Manager abruptly tells us ‘no swaps in or out of the tasting menu’ and walked away. The person on the phone said they’d bring out a birthday candle with desert but this never happened. Otherwise service was very good.

Not too far off 5 stars but just missing a couple of points on food and service.

The restaurant was incredibly short staffed it seemed so on several occasions we actually had to get up from our table to go and get the waiters attention. Some of our dishes were forgotten and didn’t turn up, and others the waiter had forgotten to tell us were sold out until we asked where they were

It was second time for a Sunday brunch and it didn’t let us down. My girlfriend booked the last slot for Sunday brunch and we had a fabulous time there! Our server Anderson who was looking after us as well was very attentive to topping up Prosecco and clearing the table, made experience much better when we don’t need to ask for anything. Would definitely come back and bring some friends along! Thanks Anderson for a good customer service. Well done!

We had the brunch on Sunday and it was an excellent way to while away a couple of hours between the Harry Potter plays. The Korean chicken wings and the hot stone rice were delicious.

The food was absolutely amazing! So delicious! It was very busy when we were there so very noisy. It was buzzy and not necessarily somewhere to go for a nice quiet date night. Great for a date with mates though.

The night was lovely as was the food and server.

A round of drinks didn’t materialise and one order of sushi, they were not on the bill though so we weren’t charged for them. Just not ideal not having them.

There was also a fuss regarding asking my friends name as it was her birthday but then nothing came of it, not a huge issue, but why make a point of it to then not do anything?

Overall very pleased and come again. Thank you.

From my team and I walked in the door the managers made us feel very uncomfortable. It even seemed like the managers were making the other employees feel uncomfortable. I would definitely would not dine there again. It was apparent the food had been just preheated and not freshly cooked.

A lovely lunch. I had chicken wings and a tuna bento box. Both were superb. A little large for me, possibly too much rice, but that's particular to my own appetite. Complex and wonderful flavours. I particularly liked the aubergine which tasted like fig jam. Presentation was beautiful and the service very friendly.
Would recommend highly.

Food was very good. Our waiter was polite but from a different restaurant so didn’t have all the information.
Restaurant was nice and busy but extremely loud which made it difficult to have a good chat.
Overall we enjoyed the food and it was good value for money.

Fantastic and attentive staff, the curry and dessert were delicious and excellent portions. Starters very small for the money but the miso aubergine was definitely worth it. Would skip the sushi. Overall a lovely meal and would come back!

Really excellent wings and iberico katsu sando! Only down side was that I was so full from the starter I couldn't finish half of my main sandwich and asked for a takeaway and they said they no longer do this, so I had to throw it away. Some sort of reasoning to do with issues with their bottomless brunch which didn't seem to explain why I couldn't take away something I paid for and moreover avoid unnecessary food waste.
