The price is quite expensive as compared to the portion. It’s not authentic Japanese food. But overall, I recommend this restaurant if you would like to try the fusion between Japanese and Korean food.

I'm usually a big fan of Sunday Brunch at Shack, but unfortunately this wasn't the case last weekend.

From the moment we sat down the staff was reminding us that they wanted us out in two hours, rushing us to order, making us feel unwelcome throughout.

Having a bottomless brunch, we had to wave down service time and time again to top up or glasses, which is just poor in a place that small. My beef main was so chewy I actually couldn't eat it, but staff weren't bothered if we enjoyed or food or not - just that we are quickly! Starters as usual were delicious. Dessert was brought to one of us, without us being asked if we were ready (we still had plenty time in our allotted 2 hours). They could give us no reason why my friend didn't get her dessert the same time as me, we actually had to ask for hers to be brought as staff had decided we should only have one (although included in the menu). Unsurprisingly the bill was shoved in front of me unceremoniously telling us it was time to leave.

Since some of the parties that had been in the restaurant having their mains when we arrived were still being happily served around us, I don't know why they were so keen to get rid of us.

What a shame, Shack.

Another amazing Sunday Brunch at Shackfuyu. Can’t rate this highly enough & amazing to have it back open safely with tier 2 rules in place. Also Maria is always the most fantastic host. Highly recommend.

Disappointed with the overall experienced, we were kicked off the table after 1.5 hours despite not being told either at the booking stage or as we arrived that the booking was for a limited time. We informed the staff of this however they dismissed this several times insisting we must’ve been informed and there was nothing they could do about it. The waiter made several mistakes with our order, resulting in us receiving incorrect cocktails which tasted vile - we only realised they weren’t what we ordered when the bill arrived. The food was good although fairly expensive when compared to the service and ambience of the restaurant, it felt more like we were in a fast food chain rather than a restaurant. Very disappointed as the booking was for a birthday meal and we wanted to make the date special however this was definitely marred by the whole experience at Shack-Fuyu.

Great service and food. The korean fried wings were amazing. So crispy and tasty. The soft cocktails on the other hand were not too great. But Apart from that, I enjoyed everything else.

We did the Sunday brunch which was fantastic value for really great food! Service was a little slow to start with but after that our glasses were never empty for long. We will be back when restrictions let us!

The bibimbap was amazing, the rest was pretty good as well (although the toast and ice cream seemed small). The dishes did take long to arrive and one of the waiters was not very polite as at 8pm he came over and told us to leave without making eye contact. I have no issues with leaving after a 1 hr and 45 mins booking but the fact he was rushing us out as if we committed a crime of some sort wasn’t a great feeling...

Amazing food and good value. We decided to order the dishes we wanted rather than go off the tasting menu and it came to the same price so we were extremely happy.
Each dish was as delicious as the last and the dessert... OMG you have to order it!!!

Loved loved loved the food, everything we ordered was superb and the service was not only timely but happy too! It was just a touch too out in there for me, maybe I’m just out of practise being in busy places, but I definitely wouldn’t let it put you off going. Especially as we went on the weekend so peak times!

I love their food and appreciate all staff wearing masks.
They only have one dessert and you wouldn’t want anything else - that dessert is a dream.
