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.
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
An enjoyable experience.
We were simply wowed by our lunch at Sugarcane. The staff were friendly and welcoming straight away. They struck up a friendly banter with our group, but were never intrusive. With regards to the menu, we did make some special requests and nothing was too much trouble. We loved the food - from the fresh, summery flavours of the Bites and Small menu items, to the satisfying and moor-ish mains. Beautiful views, great ambiance, friendly service and exemplary food. A ‘must do’ restaurant in Coogee.
Amazing food, impeccable service, looking forward to my next visit
Love this place always coming back for more! Recommend friends and clients, great place. Can be noisy in shared table area so I always ask for table near the bar! Best place!
Perfect every time. Tried the chicken wings for the first time and will be fishing back for more. Great service!
Great restaurant. The food is of the highest quality and the service is remarkable. Great place to catch up with friends or for a date night with your significant other.
Very relaxing with good atmosphere and excellent variety of food.The staff were very helpful and a good knowledge of the food.The only drawback was the choice of deserts which did not complement the main meals,should think about light deserts not rich ones.The cocktails were excellent and overall the experience was very good.
Love this restaurant. The food is excellent and service friendly and fun
Food was amazing. Great share plates.
Outstanding in every way. Can not recommend highly enough
Family birthday dinner with our 12yr old & 8 yr old, the crispy chicken & rice for kids was perfection & they loved the roti & curry sauce too. The food is delicious & service staff are lovely. The birthday chocolate cake & coconut ice cream was a total surprise & so kind & generous of Sugarcane.
I love the range of exotic Asian flavours. Always delicious
The best meal we’ve had so far in Sydney!!
Great Thai food.
By far the best restaurant in Coogee
I am never disappointed when I go to sugarcane. The food is amazing- fresh, fragrant and delicious.
Sugarcane is one of my favourite restaurants in Sydney. The food is absolutely amazing and I always leave feeling so satisfied.
We had heard good things about Sugarcane and were more than impressed when we finally got there.
The service was exceptional and one many other restaurants could strive for. The food was above our expectations and we will be sure to both recommend and return.
Our experience at Sugarcane was amazing. I went to dinner with my mum, everything was fantastic for both of us. Very attentive staff, amazing quality food and great atmosphere. The "Large Raw Platter" was very fresh and the "Hot & Sour Pork Mince Salad with Lettuce Cups" was delightful! We will definitely be back.
Wonderful food woth reasonable price (about $50 pp). Beautiful spot near coogee beach. Noisy when full.
Place had a good vibe, food was lovely and tasty. Service was good, however we felt we were being asked something every 5-10 minute, you were really made to feel the 2 hour seating limit.
Fantastic authentic tastes with great service and great value... Definitely be back!
The best food. Soooo delicious. Squid excellent. Beef rendang to die for. Make sure you order roti to go with it.
Can’t fault the food. A bit noisy though
Perfect in every way. Have been many times before and always go with the “trust me menu”, never disappointed.
Love this place.
Wait staff are always so friendly and the food is amazing.
From the small bites through to the large.
Waygu rendang and crispy chicken are the dishes we had on this visit.
I would recommend their beef rendang & Pad Thai
Beautiful food, very accomodating and thoughtful waitstaff - they provided alternate dishes for a pregnant lady in our group and organised a slice of cake for the birthday girl.
Bloody great food, and great value for money
Don’t know how the can produce this fantastic food at this price point
Really love this place been a few times now and it never disappoints
Recommend the trust me banquet as try choose what comes out
Great selection of food and flavours
We have been here a few time now and it never disappoints. Mouth watering and delicious and so fresh. Your taste buds come alive. I love this place
Dining here for the second time and just as awesome as the first. The food was fresh and extremely great quality. We got the 'trust me' menu and were treated to a range of food on the menu. Great value.
