Was expecting more food for the price. Was told the duck was big (says large plates on the menu) it was just some sliced duck breast with a dipping sauce, no rice, no sides wasn’t informed that you’d have to order extra - for £24 I’d expect it come with something else. Got tacos, sashimi, wagyu beef, duck and aubergine between two and left feeling pretty hungry. The Macha French toast I’d heard so much about was fine, but nothing amazing. For £125 (inc a cocktail or two) I’d expect a bit more, but maybe we just ordered the wrong things as I was seeing some hearty food coming out.

Very small portions for such expensive food. Taste/flavour was okay. Not the best tasted for the price charged. The sando was over-hyped. chicken was good well, however, it was just 2 pieces of crispy bread, with hellman's maynaise, the tiniest bit of katsu and lettuce. Disappointed by that.
The service charge was expensive too and when we didn't pay the service charge, as the only service we got was being served the actual food, we were asked if there was anything wrong.
Overall, would not recommend for the food.

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

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 :)
