I wish I had read some of these reviews before visiting Bar Shu.
We went on a Friday evening – table was booked for 1930
(with strict instruction we had to be out of the door by 2100) – probably to accommodate for the theatre crowd.
As some of the previous posters mentioned the service is not so hot.
Upon arriving we waited in a dark corner for 30 minutes before the menu was given to us. No amount of frantic waving could stop the waiters in their set routine.
Our order comprised of two starters (one beef in “one chilli” rated sauce – now known as magma)
and one chicken wrap stuffed with vegetables (actually quite nice).
Two mains – king prawns with cashew nuts, and “fragrant beef”
Again the prawns were pretty good. Note that what you think is a water chestnut is actually a lump of garlic.
However the fragrant beef dish seemed to have been cooked in the same generic “magma” sauce we experienced for startes (and for a few hours).
Two drinks – one small bottle of beer and a non alcoholic green tea cocktail.
Total price = £75 …
i would have questioned the bill except
There are so many other choices in and around the area. I won't be going back.
