Loved the food and service was excellent. First time there and sure to become a regular customer. They could not have been more accomodating. We were a large group with a 3 year old and 8 month old baby and everyone had a great time.

Nothing extremely bad about this place, but nothing amazing. I got a focaccia which was okay with standard microwave-style fries. The space is ordinary but the prices are fair. Though for the same money or less, I'd have just rather gone to Subway.

Neat & clean & friendly staff but food definitely needs improvement. French toast made with thin square bread & served with icecream just average. Would have been nice made with thick rustic bread & served with berries & thick yoghurt. Hubby had big breakfast but dissapointed. Sausage tasteless as was the frozen hashbrown served next to it. Eggs benedict sauce... More

Food is nice, menu is broad and the staff are friendly... It is a big space though so not an intimate spot - great spot to enjoy a laugh with a few friends...

booked here for my 50th dinner on a Sunday, decided on an early sitting of 5:00pm to avoid noisy crowds, need not have bothered there, it was so quiet, the fact it was just 3 days after Christmas may have been the reason. The "manager" greater us upon arrival and seated us quickly, not long after brought water with ice... More

I've been here only a few times over the last 10 years... last prior to this was 2004... so impressed with the last visit we're going back for a catered function for my son's 1st birthday / christening. Great food and service. Reasonably priced...

My husband and I and our family had a wonderful lunch yesterday to celebrate Mother's Day, we were able to book the new function area at Shuga, which is beautiful, and you have your own waitress, the food was lovely and the service was excellent. It is so nice to have such a lovely restaurant so close to home. We... More

Food was edible but meat and fish were very dry and cooked too much. Atmosphere was a but noisier than expected with me not really being able to hear what the other diners I was there with.

No fuss place to go when you want a good meal at a reasonable price. Been here three or four times since recently moving to the area. Plenty of parking and good staff.
