However, Strbac’s true culinary calling came to light after an extensive trip exploring South East Asia, where he developed a passionate interest in Asian cookery. This ended in a firm decision to learn the ways, methods and art of this vibrantly multi-faceted cuisine.
All of this is set amidst a completely revamped and re-designed space resembling a bustling Asian marketplace with handmade silk handbags hanging from the roof, sourced by Strbac on a recent South East Asian trip. Neon graffiti and Thai street posters adorn the walls. The dining area combines bar and banquet seating and continues the sharing and casual eating concept of Strbac’s menu.
Loved the food. Good ambiance
This was our second visit to Sugar Cane and they did not disappoint. The food was sensational and the service was impeccable. We will be back.
When sharing dishes, personally I’d prefer a stagger between courses. Everything landing at the same time isn’t ideal. Not enough Australian wines on the list.
High standard of quality food and service.
Would definitely dine here again. Pleasant wait staff & great food.
Had a delicious lunch for four people here. The flavours are a wonderful change from the same-iness of many places. While it was a quiet day the service was impeccable. The pandana dessert was out of this world.
Excellent food, service and ambience👌
Fantastic food and service.
One of my favorites here in Sydney.
Second time we went there and the food was amazing again
Fabulous, innovative food, efficient friendly knowledgablee service and a great location.
Been to restaurant several times and food always very good with dishes being different which is attractive.
The food is really delicious and exceptional. I have visited Sugarcane on several occasions and the food is always fantastic. Wonderful flavours, super interesting, creative and innovative dishes are a breath of fresh air on the overall very tired food scene in Sydney. The attentive and very helpful staff are a great asset to the restaurant.
Very nice food, great staff, would just ask for more vegetarian options.
From the moment we entered the restaurant we were greated by happy friendly staff, they were so helpful in choosing dishes. The food was absolutely amazing! Not only did it taste great but the presentation was beautiful. I would highly recommend this restaurant!!
Amazing food and amazing service!
Expensive but worth it
Ideal for a romantic dinner or friends dinner
Def do not bring your kids
I do not allocate 10 ratings so 9 is high for me.
From the moment I was greeted at the reception to the end of our meal we were treated as friends. Service level was high and the energy of the staff enjoyable.
Nice to be served by staff who want to serve you and make your experience something fun.
I will be back!
Great food, great service - a little rushed though to be done for the next sitting
Very pricey restaurant for what you get. Fusion food is very well presented but service was so slow that we were denied dessert due to an overlap with the next seating. We were not informed of this when we sat nor was it our fault that it took so long to make our dishes as the restaurant was not busy at all. Not going back. Barzura around the corner is a better deal with excellent food.
Excellent food - very dish was fresh and amazing
Our waiter made our experience enjoyable as he was very friendly and helpful
Food was exceptional. We had the Trust Me menu so we didn't have to chose and all the dishes we were served were delicious and a taste sensation. The service was exceptional and the staff were so friendly. They allowed us to add an extra person at the last minute and catered for
us all. The table wasn't booked after us so the wait staff were happy to stay and chat over another bottle of wine. The wine selection was great and we had 3 bottles of a smooth Pinot Noir. We will be back very soon.
Have had this place on my wish list for a long time and it did not disappoint. The service was fantastic, wait staff had great personalities and very knowledgeable.
The food was absolutely delicious. Crispy chicken was a standout as was the pomegranate mousse.
I will definitely be back!
Service poor. Trust me menu and three courses arrived at a time. Not romantic or a memorable dining experience. This is our fourth time at Sugarcane and the first and second dinners were fantastic , the past two have been rushed.
Always a great experience! Great food of equal quality each time . Good wine list with choices in variety and price and an impeccable service. Super friendly and attentive! Love SugarCane
Amazing food and fantastic service ! Very knowledgeable waiter who knew his wines ! Thanks to all the Sugarcane staff for a memorable dinner ! We will be back !
Two words The Best
Love this place!! It is a bit noisy however. Food is always amazing!!
Love love love Sugarcane! Hands down the best food and service in Coogee/Randwick! ;-) Consistently delicious food and all the staff are friendly and really care about your experience. The Chef is great too, having spoke to him once on the phone. I believe he was previously headed up Longrain in Surry Hills...hence the high quality food here.
There is nothing I can fault with this place! All I can say is amazing..it’s my favourite restaurant in the whole of Sydney
Love the food, ambiance and as it was a Tuesday night, not too crowded or noisy
What a beautiful experience we had in this restaurant. Very welcoming service. Good quality food. There is a huge range of wine to accompany the food.
Beautiful presentation of the plates.
Thanks you for this moment.
Fantastic place for a great meal and friendly service.
We had a delicious meal here, from the traditional beef rendang to the special mushroom rice. There is a wide selection of cocktails and a good wine list. It can be noisy when busy. Service was helpful and attentive. Cost was $290.00 for 4 so not cheap, but the food is excellent.
The food was exceptional and that’s why we go back often. The wine is over priced at $16 a glass as the lowest. Cheapest bottle is $48. However, the food is so good that you tend to not worry about the price of drinks.
Absolutely delicious and refined flavours to suit all tastes. Definitely special treat as it comes in as a bit pricier than most family gatherings would. However, in saying that, we were not disappointed and had a fan tastic time!
The service was fabulous, and the food was delicious. We were able to have a conversation as the noise levels were quite acceptable for a busy friday night crowd. Highly recommended!
booked a table for 5 a week in advance, We were sat at the back near the toilets at a table for four with an extra chair put at it. Despite a party of 4 walking in off the street and getting a large table and there being empty large tables all night. no service whatsoever (not even water) for 15-20 min until reminding hostess we were there.Then had to wait another 20 min to order. Food was great (as usual). Pinot noir by the glass was meh. Disappointed as usually great
It was our second time at Sugarcane and not our last. The food was fantastic to the last mouth watering mouthful. Staff were friendly and attentive but not too attentive. Looking forward to our next visit. Yum!
Food was excellent and inventive; the dessert was particularly good.
Waiter was very helpful with recommendations. Nice interior fitout.
Great place to go with family to share Asian Cuisine.
Fabulous food , service and atmosphere . Coogee’s little gem !
