Shoryu job reviews

  • Best thing

    As well as many local people, you will meet many tourists that are on vacation, some are more than likely to speak a foreign language and it’s really fun to conversation with them if you know the language too.

    Worst thing

    The service charge 12.5% (tips) does no where near make up for the low hourly wage, if anything it may be in additional £1-2 per hour during really busy moments. But I don’t think the pay is worth the effort you put in, especially during during busy hours.
