As usual, there is always an excellent service and top quality food. This restaurant belongs to the Suntory Group which very well regarded in Mexico City. They always have new suggestions and wonderful presentation and taste. Highly recommended if you are around La Isla Shopping Center. Otherwise, there is a Suntory in the Acapulco Beach. Certainly, based on the location... More

Great Japanese Seafood place with modern decor. We liked the Hifukidori fish, and shrimp is a great dish where breded fish is fried with a sweet and sour sauce, small potato, walnut and garlic with dried red hot chilli peppers (lots). Also Dragon roll y Super Crunch sushi is great. They have another one at La Fe in Mexico City

Visited Shu the other day for a late lunch and found it to be quite pleasant and delivering along with expectations. Coming from the Suntory Group, this is a very nice and ample restaurant with the typical Japanese food you've come to expect from them. The Teppanyaki tables are quite comfortable although with the heat you really do work up... More

Just excellent. Great food; great service; very beautiful restaurant. The best teppanyaki we've had. And thanks to the Grand Mayan for making the reservation and arranging the cab ride to there and back. Everyone in my family was impressed.

Shu is from the makers of Suntory same owners. The food is fresh and has a wide variety of Japanese selection. Restaurant itself is beautiful and very cozy modern design.

Really enjoyed the experience especially watching the chef create our dishes in front of us. My 16yr old son was surprisingly open to trying out some of the new dishes. Service was good n attentive. I particularly enjoyed my seafood teppanyaki.
