If you are Trinidadian, then you will love this place. The wait is sooo worth it, soon as you walk in to Sugarcane you can feel the vibes of being back in your Grandmother kitchen, the pictures on the wall takes me way back to those peaceful and fun days. The staff is excellent and the bartender can make you any drink you please, the man is good people, he made a sorrel martini for me and i loved him ever since then.
The place is not the usual huge eating establishment that is out there, but that's what makes it such a fun experience. You should, should call and make reservations and stick to your time, it's the hottest spot so the seats are always taken. You might even catch the band on certain nights.Last but not least, the food, well you should try the Sugarcane Shrimp first or the Balisier Shrimp, man it is soo good, that's my usual plate, the callaloo is like Grandma came and cooked it herself.
So this is the best place to go and eat and bring alot of money, your Visa/Mastercard or debit card, it is not cheap but more on the moderate line.
I am trini and have been to this restaurant B4 and did not enjoy the food, I thought let me try again. Unfortunately I went this weekend only to be ignored by my waiter, served the incorrect meal and sent into diabetic-shock by the drinks. The food was ok at best. The Sorrell was way too sweet. I wasn't very happy with the food or the service I received on Saturday, then to top off this horrible experience I find out I was triple-billed on my credit card. The atmosphere is pleasant but that's about it as far as I am concerned. You can get better food from Gloria's on Nostrand Avenue in Brooklyn, Mike's International on Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn or Roti Shop on Flatbush Avenue Bet. Caton and Linden in Brooklyn. Also there is a Restaurant located on Church Avenue in Brooklyn, it used to be Foods' R' Us but I don't know the new name they have way better Trinidadian Food.
I was very disappointed and will not be returning to SUGARCANE. Sorry SUGARCANE UR NOT AS NICE AND SWEERT AS I THOUGHT YOU WOULD BE.
I was invited to Sugar Cane with three friends for Mothe's Day and I had a wonderful time. The food was excellent; I haven't had authentic Trini food for a long time. The drinks were made just right and the ambience perfect. I will definitely go back. Overall a perfect evening well spent.
They make me feel like a little girl in my mothers' kitchen. Their Roti and curry, Mac & cheese are like to my mother's. Their Ginger chicken is fabulous. Their signature drinks are OUT OF THIS WORLD! And there is always a good and energetic vibe. Coming from the pickiest person I know (myself), Sugarcane is definitely a Brooklyn MUST!
Youll enjoy a friday night after work or saturday evening gathering here. The wait is a pain but usually I have a Great time once im in and the bartenders make some really great concoctions. The food and the atmosphere are really cool. Definately a spot to hit up when your in the area
I've never visited Sugarcane for the warm and fuzzy service; it has never existed. That said, the food was once enough to lure me back to experience the punishment doled out by the staff. Where else would you go, and have the staff (especially the bartenders) force you to take control of your dining experience? I've sat and watched them communicate via grunts and nods of the head: Who does that? Is the clientele not worthy of communication? About two weeks ago is when I decided that enough is enough! On top of the indifferent and sometimes rude staff, I was served a red snapper that was so not fresh; I could smell that it wasn't fresh as it was placed in front of me. Anyhoo, I replaced it with oxtails, a dish that was once stellar at this place, but one that I could only pretend to enjoy on this particular evening. Sugarcane, you need to get it together, and stop taking your patrons for granted.! If you were a restaurant catering to another ethnic group, you would have closed long ago, because they don't stand for the kind of sh!t you force your customers to endure.
