We had our sons christening lunch at Shuga- only to regret every minute. Firstly the communication between the manager and staff is very poor. I had rang twice to confirm prior to out function that we would be able to and setup the night before- we were told yes- we show up the night before only to be lectured by... More

Tonight I had taken out my wife and kids for Mother’s Day dinner as it’s a special day, unfortunately I made a mistake by taken them to this restaurant. The reasons why I am very disappointed is because we had to wait 1 hour for our entrée, and on top of that another 20 minutes for the main meal. In... More

Went for lunch with a friend, I had the chicken and mushroom risotto nice flavour but not a lot of chicken or mushrooms for the price, friend had the calamari some pieces were undercooked had varying sizes so some pieces were over cooked, lots of chips and decent size salad, will I be back? Nah properly not, staff very disinterested.

We frequent this restaurant quite a bit as it has a lunch menu with a glass of wine, also, the prices for other meals are reasonable and you can also BYO wine, which is such a bonus. Not sure about corkage but I know its not very much $. Large roomy restaurant and has an outdoor area which is great... More

We went to Shuga on a coupon deal so our choices were limited. The group had tasting platters for entrees and they were OK. They included eggplant chips, saganaki, arancini balls, bruschetta and more. All quite good except the saganaki which was tasteless. A good start but basically all fried. Quality and quantity were generally good. The mains on our... More

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
