I love Japanese food so was really excited to try Shyun after seeing great reviews on Urban Spoon.
I think I may have gone on a bad day, because there was really nothing amazing here. In fact, I was disappointed.
The venue is very casual, quick dining – in, eat, pay, out. They have an interesting ordering system where you order off iPads. The menu looks good, there is a gluten free section split out, although it’s pretty small.
The good looking menu is where the good part stopped. The food was brought out about 30 seconds after ordering, so was clearly just sitting around and not prepared fresh. For appetisers we had some edename which were wilted. For mainI had a salmon steak that was dry and looked like it had been cooked hours ago. Bit of rice on the side (that was dry around the edges, so probably prepared hours ago and just popped in the microwave to serve) and a bit of salad. A complete disappointment when I was looking forward to beautiful, fresh Japanese food.
