We hadn't been in a while to Shu and it will be a long time before we are back, if ever. The two female waitresses are excellent at their jobs. Meet and greet person needs a suit that fits him or a good diet plan....More

Overall, a great surprise...More

Only okay. Service was quick, friendly and professional. Menu was a little limited. Presentation was fine, food was just alright - nothing to write home about.
