“Hidden Gem, lovely food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2013

Lovely restaurant, very good food, freiendly staff, clearly run by a family with the passion for providing a good service without standing watching you like a hawk.

We had a set menu which was delicious, plently of choice and plenty of food.

Highly recommended

“Doesn't live up to the reviews”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We visited Sugar Cane based on the reviews, 'a hidden gem' was what we kept telling ourselves as we approached the run down dated looking place, the inside is no better but the staff were friendly and the place was busy.
As much as i wanted to be able to agree with the reviews, this place just doesn't live up to them, its decidedly average. We had the set menu for 2 which is a very reasonable price but thats probably the best i can say. The food is just typical Chinese, nothing special at all.
To but it into context with its local competition, this place doesn't hold its own agains Malee Thai or Tamborino's or Akash and isn't a patch on somewhere like Vicerory and i wouldn't event try to compare it to the delights of somwhere like the Queens Arms in Corton Denham.
If you want run of the mill Chinese food at a good price then go ahead, if you want anything special then i suggest you avoid.

“Great food, slow service”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 16, 2013

We went to this restaurant after seeing the great reviews on here. Unfortunately we had a different experience!
Food was fantastic but took a very long time to arrive, as it did for the whole restaurant. The service was friendly when there but seemed to disappear to the kitchen a lot.
Would return again if I had the time to spend a whole evening but not again if we had to wait the same amount of time!

“Fantastic food, dated decor”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013 via mobile

We chose this place after looking at good reviews on trip advisor. First impressions weren't good due to the chintzy 1980's decor with pink tablecloths, however the staff were friendly and we ordered away. Well our impression was changed when the food arrived, absolutely fantastic! Some of the best Chinese food I've had, so don't be put off when you first walk in, it's well worth the time travel!
