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 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.
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.
Third visit to Sugarcane and as excellent as first two visits. Food was amazing as was the service.
I cannot Fault anything, we had the best dining experience! Service was awesome 👌
Wonderfull food !
Food, as always, is superb here. What lets this place down bigtime is the service and certainly this was lacking in my last visit.
The food was delicious!!!
Our absolute favourite in Coogee. Have dined at Sugarcane five times over the last 18 months and has been on point every time.
Everything on the menu is fresh and delicious. Service is efficient and friendly.
Love it! Very reasonably priced for the high quality and range of food. Great drinks. Extremely friendly staff that seem happy to be at work. Food was beyond my expectation. A real local gem! We will be back.Trust the chef is the way forward!
The food was exceptional - fresh, tasty, nutritious (apart from sugar content - but that's to be expected based on the restaurant's name!). Authentic Asian flavours but presented in a modern way.
The menu is, however, somewhat limited for anyone severely allergic to shrimp paste.
The staff were absolutely wonderful.
Relaxing,vibrant, local eatery. The food and service created the feeling you were in a exotic location far away from Sydney.
Love the food here! One of my faves in Sydney
Excellent service and incredible food. Compliments to the chefs and all the staff. We will definitely come back and will recommend to others.
The four of us came here for a family birthday celebration and were extremely impressed. The food was stunning and the portion sizes were generous. Also our Kiwi host was friendly and helpful. We will definitely be back!
A wonderful experience - my daughter enjoyed the okra and eggplant dish (and she isn't a fan of either of these veggies - but the taste won her over). Delicious food and fantastic service. They went above and beyond and served my husband a birthday slice at the end - something I didn't ask for but mentioned in my booking. It's 5 star service in a casual, relaxed and vibrant atmosphere. A fave of ours!
Great food but pretty bad service
Great food and our waitress was attentive!
Our dinner experience at Sugar Cane was delightful since our arrival. Our waiter has been exceptional in guiding us through the menu , suggesting but leaving us in control.
We enjoyed every single dish which was of top quality and presentation. The cultural experience is unforgettable and the food carries the passion and the dedication of the people that work in the kitchen.
Desserts were amazing, perfect finish after our dinner. I couldn't resist and took one home to my husband to try...
Been many times before with my wife and friends and Sugarcane never fails in any department. The service is always spot on and the team will do anything they can to accommodate dietary needs too, the food is consistently well cooked & delicious and the ambiance is perfect for all occasions. Love it and will keep going back!
I took my partner here for his birthday. Everything was great. The food, the service, the whole lot!!! They even put a candle in our dessert and sang him happy birthday (without my knowledge) which was very sweet of them.
We will definitely be back!!!!
Our first visit but will definitely be back! Every dish a winner!
I have been here over 10-15 times for romantic, family, birthday events and have never been disappointed. The ambience, the happy, friendly staff and OMG the flavours of that sensational food they make!!! My partner and I are foodies and this by far is our favourite. You have our expectations so high now and have not found anything close. Well done and look forward to eating there soon.
Delicious food. Busy, so service a bit slow, but a lovely night with friendly staff and yummy!
Sugarcane is the best restaurant in the Eastern Suburbs..... there is no close 2nd.
Food is farking fantastic as is the service.
You pay for what you get so expect a bill.
The food is amazing, loved it. We were between two noisy tables so sometimes hard to hear.
Really delicious food that is unique. Could not fault any dish and felt very satisfied afterwards.
It was too expensive(tiny bit)
Food was fantastic,service was fantastic
My husband and I love Sugarcane. The food is delicious and the staff are friendly knowledgeable and very helpful. On this occasion we were running late I rang to let the restaurant know and they were fantastic. Nothing is a problem .
Always consistent, great staff, good management and to top it all... delicious food and wines :)
