Middle East classics on Beach Road

  • Shu
From Time Out Dubai Eating Out 2011
Shu is all about the interior design: even from the hip beige and brown building it’s obvious the inside is going to be something extraordinary. Bookcases line the walls, funky-shaped furniture abounds and the music is continually cool. And the food? The menu is worryingly eclectic, spanning everything from Italian to Arabic, via sushi and Thai. Fortunately, they seem to pull it off, with diners returning again and again for the cheese manakish (and their spag' bol'). Service is slow, and the crowd Arabic – whom mainly rock up for shisha, tea and computer games, rather than fine dining. Another entertaining factor? The many Ferraris and Lamborghinis that drive up to the gates, where the trusty valet is happy to take the keys and park up round the corner. Tip: go later to experience Dubai’s buzzing non-drinking set. Shu

    Would you go back to this restaurant?
    At first it looked like a very nice place to have a quick bite. The music was overwhelming, the staff completely clueless, could barely understand a word of English, the coffee was absolutely discuss ting, the decor horrific. It looked like they haven't clean the place in years. The water-glass still had lipstick on. I would not recommend this for anyone. I feel that the health inspector should close this place down , FOREVER. It is a disgrace. We need must better restaurants on beach road area.
