About Shu Restaurant

Plant-based modern Sichuan cuisine is what awaits Collingwood diners at Shu Restaurant on Johnson Street. Named after owner and Chef, Shu Liu, chill out in fun and funky surrounds of neon lighting, clear plastic chairs, potted greenery and wire sculptures hanging from the ceiling as you ponder degustation menus to tempt all palates. Stop for a sake at the bar before dining on local and seasonal produce, executed with a creative mind and contemporary philosophy; stop in on Sunday for unlimited yum cha, or dine on the signature 10-course vegan degustation. Think main offerings like grilled shiitake steak, Asian mushrooms and handmade crepe, or preserved mustard seeds, Chinese doughnut and stir-fried potatoes; before an indulgent dessert to finish of Oolong tea pudding and black sugar syrup.

Just one amazing experience. The food, hospitality and culture were superb. The venue 10/10


I live and travel all over China and have extensive personal research on Sichuan food and this little rockstar restaurant produces, seriously, the best Sichuan fusion in Australia!!! You WILL NOT be disappointed with the food...


Just came here with overseas friends from switzerland, hongkong and japan, and the verdict was - perhaps the most amazing modern chinese everyone has ever tasted!! Shu has deconstructed traditional flavours then reconstructed them into food that is refreshing, clean and still capturing the essense of sichuan cuisine!!!! I would choose shu over spice temple, way more affordable and humble!!!
