More info


The building is Heritage listed and was built around 1870. It is clean, charming, dim lighting and has lots of character. Owners Peter and Phanomwan (Wan) Warren have taken what has been a successful local Thai restaurant for the past 6 years and added a touch of North East Thai authenticity to the already vast and popular menu.

There are the usual traditional dishes such as Pad Thai, Spicy Gapao Beef, Green and Red Curries and Crispy Spring rolls and Curry Puffs. you can also enjoy the succulent Salt and Chilli Squid, Marinated Aged Sizzling Beef, Market Fresh Fish of the day with ginger and lemon grass or the famous Triple Combo Curry. If you are really daring you can try the Jungle Curry, especially put together by Wan and the top Thai chef Oscar.

Sugarcane also has a new specials menu that incorporates some traditional North East Thai dishes.

Sugarcane is relaxed, romantic but can also be great for large bookings.

The second level has a great size Private and Function Room that seats 26 people for that special night out with family, friends or work colleagues. And if you want to be alone with just a few close friends, there is a great table that sits 8 people next to the bar and fire place which is nice and cozy.

So come in, relax and enjoy some of the amazing tastes and flavours of Thailand.

Sugarcane has become one of our favourites since we moved into the area in 2011. The food is fresh, delicious, authentic and the menu has enough variety for everyone. We often ask them to dial up the spiciness (my man is a chilli fiend!) which they are happy to do, but it's never at the expense of the flavours. The atmosphere is very inviting with warm lighting, candles and a lush plant creeper growing round the doorways. Service is truly excellent and friendly. Duck spring rolls are always in our order, as is their delicious chicken satay (a generous serve for an entree and the sauce is ambrosiac). Other firm favourites are the minced pork with eggplant, massaman curry and the charcoal chicken served with chilli sauce.
