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.
Brilliant food and service. Great ambience for date, catch up, special occasion.
Amazing food and great value. Highly recommend the ‘trust me’ menu. Every dish was delicious!
From their Raw we had a "Large Raw Platter - Selection of Our Fresh Items." The offering was gorgeous tuna, salmon, kingfish and oysters and came with 3 zesty sauces.
For our main we selected from the Spicy & Wet menu (why not?) We had "Kingfish Baba Curry, Tamarind, Cumin." The table next to us had just been served the same. Unfortunately, we had too much of the fish collar and smaller fillets we saw on the next table. The manager assured us this was normal for this fish.
Easily the best restaurant in Sydney if not Australia if not the world,
First time here and selected the Taste Me menu so we could sample a range of dishes. Food was fabulous, plenty of it too, you won’t leave hungry! Service was seemless and the place was packed when we finished and it was a Tuesday night, so that says it all!! New local favourite.
Absolutely delicious food at a bargain price with great ambience!! Perfect for date night, groups or even just a sneaky take away!
The food was absolutely delicious! Will definitely go back. 10/10
Amazing local gem, fresh flavours, amazing service and gorgeous view
Great food and an extensive menu supported by exceptional staff and quick service.
An enjoyable dining experience
As usual....an exceptional experience led by our French front of house (Happy 40th BTW..!)
Food, service and ambience perfect.
Third visit to sugarcane never disappointed with quality of food. A+++++
Will continue visiting to try everything on menu!
Wait staff and management very friendly and well organised .
Food was absolutely delicious. Fantastic ambience.
Wonderful local place with great atmosphere superb service and fab food!
We booked due to TripAdvisor reviews are were not dissapointed. We decided to go for the Trust the Chef tasting menu and that was a great option as we tried dishes we would never had ordered. Great flavour food, my only slight criticism us the beef tending could have more spice and heat. Overall a great meal
Great food and friendly staff. Its a pitty the lamb ribs is no longer in the menu
We had the most amazing dinner. We chose the ‘trust me’ menu. The dishes that were picked out for us were outstanding and the flavours in each dish were mind blowing. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to all my friends.
Oh my god the plum chicken! It’s the best!
Outstanding cocktails too!
Excellent! Will be back! Lovely staff, Francois look after us as we never had any experience re this Asian Fusion food.
Ah Sugarcane!! When I reach that "I've had a week of ghastly and I need to be revived" you do it to me every time.
Impeccable service; speedy food; so crunchy; so yummy; so tasty; so speedy!!
Gluttony: thy name is Sugarcane. Love it!!
the flavours and infusions on the plates were unbelievable I cannot wait to go back to try other items on the menu
Love this place! We go here often and the food is always amazing as is the service. Sam is the best!
Food is always a high standard, however the wait staff didn’t seem to have their usual grasp on the menu or enthusiasm to recommend and help.
Wine person was great and very knowledgeable.
Great service, made to feel welcome and appreciated, nice after a 4 hour drive to get there!
I love Thai food and I believe this is the most delicious Thai food I have ever had the pleasure of eating! It was a busy rainy day and the staff were run off their feet - however they were terrific.
I have recommended this to everyone I know.
Hats off to the chef.
4 of us went for dinner and shared the trust me menu. So many delicious meals arrived with so many flavours.
Not our first time and won’t be the last. Loved everything
Fabulous food. Every dish was unique. Had the Trust me menu. Waitress was very obliging when we requested special dishes to be included. Not cheap but a true dining experience.
Amazing food & attentive staff. Highly recommend Sugar Cane
Been before and had terrible service and didn't get what I asked for. This time the service has definitely improved but is very noisy & very expensive for what you get.
Exquisite food, great wine list and anazing service!
We had an amazing dinner at the sugarcane! We both went with the trust me menu and it was really worthing it!
I would recommend it without hesitation, and even overseas (I'm French)!
Thanks to the staff as well, great job guys!
From greeting, to seating to food arriving - everything was great. Everyone was smiling and happy and nothing a problem. Keep it up!
We love Sugarcane we have dined here many times usually for a special occasion.
The menu is fantastic simple but delicious. Favourites are the betel leaf the rendang curry and last night we tried the Salmon cerviche which was so good .
The staff are always friendly and knowledgeable and give great service.
Couldn’t recommend highly enough.
Food was amazing and the service outstanding. The oysters and kingfish cerviche were out of this world. We'll be back. Thanks Sugarcane!!!
Food was sensational and large servings
Excellent food and something a little bit different for Coogee locals, a suburb where much on offer is pitched at tourists
We have dined here about 5 times. The food is consistently good. I have recommended the restaurant to many friends and they have all enjoyed the food. The staff are very officious . It amazes me that when you make a booking and they want to seat you near the kitchen , when there are 4 tables empty in the middle of the restaurant.
The food is exceptional and the staff are friendly and efficient. Great atmosphere and location.
Always wonderful food. Food and drinks arrival were not so good. Food before we even were served with first drink
