Lovely food, lovely staff, excellent menu

I was a bit disappointed when I first got given a menu by the sweet little Chinese man-there was a distinct lack of veggie options! I mentioned this to him and, beaming away, he produced a whole new menu, completely veggie! Food was awesome, choice of tofu rather than just veg for the veggies, I... read more

It's been too long! We really do need to find time to go here more often, the food was excellent, my partner's fillet steak in black bean sauce and peppers etc just fell apart. The duck pancakes were delicious and my lemon chicken very tasty. All of the meat was of good quality, often you find beef can be chewy... More

As others have said, take no notice of the very plain exterior because the restaurant is welcoming on the inside! It was very quiet (no other customers) on a cold November weekday evening, and the owners were very friendly. No complaints about the food, it was a good standard. An easy walk from the cinema.

Food not bad - but not great, not very friendly welcome waitresses just stood around talking, people that came in after us were served before us, took 2 hours for our meal, we must have gone on an off day after reading other reviews. Don't think we will be going back

Hi Raymond, I have discussed the issue with the staff and believe that your conclusions are incorrect. On the day that you came into the restaurant we were very busy and I believe that was apparent from the moment you sat down. After speaking to the waitresses and additionally to the chef, your wait was no longer than 1 hour... More

My other half and I stopped off in Yeovil for a night and decided to try dinner at Sugar Cane. The food was decent although I've definitely had better, and overall the service was good and the meal represented decent value for money. Unfortunately two things let the place down. The first was that they tried to overcharge me for... More

Hi Tom, Thank you for your constructive comments. I am sorry to hear that you were dissatisfied with the overcharging of the item. From my understanding however you were recompensed for the item which should have solved the issue. Regarding the food making you unwell, I would be more than happy to discuss with you on which dish caused this.... More

Recently visited the Sugar Cane for a birthday meal. It's a small unassuming place, but with a very warm atmosphere. We were seated quickly and drink orders taken immediately. The menu had a wide range of food and my vegetarian wife was amazed to see she had her own menu! Food arrived quickly and was very tasty indeed. I had... More

Thank you for your kind remarks about our establishment. I was very happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. The chicken we use for our Satay chicken is taken fresh from chickens which we cook on premises and our satay sauce is a special recipe where we use real peanuts so that the flavour compliments the chicken. We always... More

My wife wasnt that impressed and she does not think it was one of the best chinese we have had - she says there was nothing wrong with it infact the service was excellent by the 2 young waitresses.
