Food was good, could do with more vegetarian options. But nice place to go for a meal with friends and family!

I very rarely leave reviews but I felt very disappointed with our visit to Shack-Fuyu. The restaurant was very loud and made it difficult to have a conversation. We waited quite a while to order, but once we ordered the food did come out very quickly. Unfortunately the food was not very nice, we ordered aubergine bao buns which were fine, but to be honest I've had much better at wagamamas. We also ordered the Korean chicken wings which were covered in a very intense sauce, and the most disappointing dish of all was the prawn toast, which did not resemble toast at all but instead was a very fishy soufle with a crispy outer coating. My partner ordered the veggie katsu curry, which he said was OK, but again has had better at wagamamas. We decided to visit here after hearing good things about it on the off menu podcast, but unfortunately will not be returning.

An experience not to be missed - waiting staff were brilliant, always happy to give their personal recommendations, and even for someone who isn’t usually a dessert fan, the French Toast was incredible.

Even if there’s only 2 of you, best way to experience the menu is through lots of Small Plates!!

Everything was excellent. Great service, although for about 10 minutes I think we were forgotten about but then two people came by separately to take our order. It wasn't an issue at all and didn't cause a bad experience.

Food is so delicious and interesting!

We had a great time!
Even though one or two things on the menu had run out, the staff were very friendly and professional and definitely made up for what we'd missed out on. Can recommend the orange miso duck, seabass ceviche and octopus tacos.

Shack-Fuyu is one of my favourite restaurants and I love the food however, it was so disappointing that the famous French toast was off the menu! I took some friends who'd not eaten here before and felt the lack of French toast was a huge shame.

The food was amazing! The service was a little slow and considering we had tbe pre-show we did actually have to leave without dessert however the staff were lovely and said we could come back after to have it - which we did and it was definitely worth the trip back in the pouring rain. Staff could have been a bit more attentive (although they were nice) we sat for 10-15 mins without being asked for any orders with staff chatting (if it had been super busy then more understandable). Overall it was lovely and I would definitely go back.

My first visit, and overall very impressed. Good value, high quality food - tuna tacos fantastic- and friendly, efficient staff.

Only caveat is the slightly tatty decor and the massively bleak lighting

The venue is always busy and great energy but is a bit loud if you want to have a good chat. The food was so delicious but they had run out of their one dessert which I was really looking forward to trying.

I came on a date with my partner since we reserved a table for two. We were greeted immediately on approach in a friendly professional manner.

The staff are very attentive and intuitive. They gave us ample time to decide drinks and food. Orders were taken and confirmed which was a nice touch.

The food is outstanding, fresh and delicious. Just remember to blow since it’s hot.

I would definitely come back here and recommend to anyone looking for a spin on Asian cuisine :)

Busy lively spot, we opted for the brunch option for the table and were surprised about the generous portions of the small plates. Food came quickly, not much of a pause between courses. Good value given the central location

Amazing food and great service. However, we felt very rushed, don't even get 2hrs from time of reservation. To counteract this, staff could be more proactive in taking orders as we it was about half hour since arrival before food was ordered.

The restaurant was very busy when arriving and as such more noisy than buzzy, in my opinion. Seated promptly order placed. The food is good on the tasting menu but very sauce heavy. Apart from the drink ordered on arrival not once did we get asked if we'd like more, the dining experience was over 2 hours with around 20 minutes trying to get our bill. Not sure I'd recommend this one, not for me, good food and good service needed for these prices.
