We stopped by the Sugar Club for a fine dining experience during our trip to Auckland and we found it unexpectedly disappointing. Guests dine at Sugar Club get to have free access to the sky tower deck and observation area. That was a bonus. We started with a glass of bubbles each and an appetizer. We ordered six dishes, grilled asparagus and sweetcorn, hiramasa kingfish, duck breast salad, spiny crayfish and otago saffon linguine, paua brioche & ox tongue, and day boat fish with whitebait. The grilled asparagus and sweet corn and the hiramasa kingfish were entrees. Both had tastes that did not make sense, especially the grilled asparagus and sweet corn. Goat cheese was definitely not our favourite. The duck breast salad was not a salad in my opinion. Even though it had chinese cabbage and beans, it was weird to have salad soaked in dressing and very salty. The duck breast was nicely cooked though. The linguine was better, flavourful and we loved the crayfish. Paua brioche was very nice, not too chewy. Ox tongue was tender and juicy. Fish was snapper, just an ordinary dish. We finished the meal with a dessert, avocado, mango and yuzu sorbet with coconut tapioca, barbequed pineapple, passionfruit, black sesame glass wafer. It was very nice, sweet yet sour. The black sesame glass wafer was so sticky though! Overall the dishes were a bit salty. Service was good, and the environment was great. Food was overly charged, yet still very popular.
