Given the number of Asian eateries offering modern interpretations of Thai, Vietnamese and Malaysian classics, this place doesn't stand out a place to go. While the food is decent, I agree with simonc22, its not overwhelming. We went here for a group lunch but there was no one else in here. Not sure if this has something to do where its located but it just felt like there was no ambiance. also given that there was no one else in there, the service could be better. If you are looking for a place that's easy to get a table and you want decent inexpensive food then head here but be warned there isn't much ambience.
I came here for lunch with work colleagues and really appreciated the decor. Service-wise they were very attentive and friendly. The food was okay, nothing wowed me incredibly but i enjoyed it. Highlight was probably the crispy pork hock.
I stumbled across this little place walking past months ago and I've always wanted to try it. Asian cuisine infused with Malaysian/Thai. Fairly priced at around $15 per plate, plenty to choose from, they had no chicken wings though - insert sad face.
Service was quick, but we were the only table in the place, which is shame as I think it would have a nicer feeling if at least half the restaurant was full.
When I walked in today for lunch, I really wanted this to be a 'very good' experience but it was just good. I think because we came at lunch time mid-week, we missed out on the ambience that might be there on a week night or weekend.
The service was nothing to complain about and the prices were reasonable (probably feel that way as it was on the work account though!)
We had a few starters followed by shared curries, noodles and other dishes (the pork was pretty good) which were all very tasty.
I'd like to try it out again, after work and with a bottle of wine - just to see if the experience is a little more heightened.
The food was great - very tasty - and we had almost too much with 2 entrees and 5 mains between 5 of us. The standout was the crispy pork hock and green mango. However the service was spotty and inattentive and the place was very loud. Definitely not a place for a date.
We tried Sugarcane yesterday for lunch. What a pleasant surprise! the meals were a good size and really well priced for lunch. You have to try the prawn entree - divine. I'll be having a good serve of these next time - they need to be experienced. The service was 5 star and were extremely friendly. As we hadn't been there before we asked for a recommendation and the dishes chosen did not disappoint. A must for lunch - i haven't tried dinner there yet but will definitely be back there again. Its now my fav spot for lunch in the city.
We've just came back from Sugarcane for dinner and I would like to say that this place is a must. We didn't have a reservation but they had quite a few tables available (I guess 'Monday night' factor might be the reason).
We ordered some entrees which are quite an exciting fusion for Thai cuisine.
The servings for the main dishes are quite generous (which I believe is reasonable given the price). The papaya salad with pork hock was a really great dish, while the duck is quite average. They also charge the rice per person instead of per bowl, which I think is very generous given the nature of the restaurant. Overall, I think two dishes would be enough for about 2 to 3 people.
The servers are very attentive. We never have to ask for more water or rice -- which definitely adds quite a value to the entire dining experience.
Took a while to actually get a booking due to recent good reviews. A lot of people got turned away whilst we were there.
Some really interesting food. We had spring rolls that were on the specials, they were probably the downside of the meal - not a lot of flavour. Everything else was brilliant.
The decor is very stark. It certainly didn't make me want to stay and we left as soon as our meal was finished. The noise factor is an issue and hopefully open doors during warmer weather will help here.
