Asian
Head chef and owner Milan Strbac’s childhood centred greatly on food. Always hungry to learn more about worldly cuisines and the unique ways in which they are prepared, Strbac’s early career spanned Fez Café, followed by the infamously cool Marque restaurant and Brooklyn Hotel Italian Restaurant.

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.

    The flavours in every dish were amazing. Without a doubt the best Thai restaurant, and for that matter restaurant, that I have ever been to. The staff were so friendly and gave great recommendations on what to eat. Superb wine list too. A little pricey, so save it for special occasions. Will be coming back every chance I get.

    I wasn’t overly impressed with the level of service when we dined at Sugarcane. Myself and my guest ordered the same dishes for starter and main and when the Pad Thai arrived, I queried whether it was a portion for two people as it was served in one bowl and our waiter said “I assume so” but when the bill came, it was clear we had only been served one serving. I also thought that the waiter was poor in topping up our drinks, which I would expect when our glasses are empty.

    6 friends catching up for dinner . Food was excellent, 2 of us are vegan and quite a few of the fishes could be adapted easily to vegan option. Very tasty. The only bad thing we could say was that 90 minute sitting felt way too rushed ! It felt like the waiter was rushing us along all through the meal , and we still had wine in our glasses when we had to leave for the next sitting. To be honest I think the 8pm sitting is the way to go to relax over dinner .

    Even though I went with someone who was raving about it, Sugarcane exceeded my high expectations. There’s a lot of modern Asian fusion about (Chin Chin, Chubby Cheeks) to the point that you could argue it might be a tired format. Not the case here - each dish was exemplary, the flavour of the food and variety was brilliant. One of those menus where you could order anything. Given the quality of the cooking and the location, very reasonably priced. The service was outstanding.

    This was our first dining out experience after the COVID-19 restrictions were lifted and it was perfect! The restaurant has adapted the space so that everyone is safe, and while it’s a little less noisy than the usual hussle, the ambience is still nice and relaxing. You can now easily hear your tables conversations and not anyone else’s! The food, as always, is to die for. The raw food is so fresh and has great textures. The curries are rich and flavoursome. And the cocktails are delicious! Thanks for a great night - we will definitely be back!

    Did the ‘Trust Me’ banquet menu for four people. All of the dishes were amazing. Super fresh and all very tasty and complemented each other well. More than enough food. Good wine recommendations from the waiter. Great service. Nice ambience and not too loud, easy to have conversation but still had a good, buzzy atmosphere.

    Took my wife for dinner as she had hinted a few times about wanting to try it. After attending and eating I was very surprised and satisfied. Great feel to the place. Wait staff were really nice and helpful. Some dishes seem pricey but after eating them the price doesn’t matter. Absolute flavour bombs going off in your mouth. We have eaten in different parts of Asia etc and these flavours were up there with the best. It’s defo worth the visit compared to your average favourite Thai spots
