A word from RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen
RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen is the first restaurant of its kind in L.A. An upscale casual destination from eminent restaurateur David Overton and Singapore-raised, New York-trained chef Mohan Ismail (Spice Market, Tabla, Blue Hill), RockSugar showcases the cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia and India. Drawing upon memories of family meals his mother made, chef Mohan folds in his vast culinary experience to bring together the exhilarating tastes of a half-dozen Southeast Asian nations. Dishes are served Asian family-style to create an atmosphere that encourages sharing & conversation. RockSugar, which takes its name from an ingredient used by Asian chefs, features a full bar with an extensive wine list and exotic cocktails and an onsite bakery where it creates fresh-made desserts that infuse French flair with Asian-influence. Please Note: Online reservations are available for parties up to 6 people.Continued

  • "I am a vegetarain and they served me meat and told me it was veggie food. Very bad."

  • "We were seven of us and suprisingly got a nice quiet spot for a sunday lunch. The chef sent us complimentary Thai new year dumpling to try which was amazing. everyone found something to enjoy in the menu as its hard to please teenagers these days. My frends loved the place"

  • "the food just wasnt tasty. the natural flavors of the food were overpowered by the sauses and seasoning. its like when you go to a cheap restaurant and they hide the fact that their meats are not very high standard by pouring sauce over it. but this place wasnt cheap. we had the tasting menu so my friend and i spent 50 bucks each. i wish we had just gone to a pho place and spent 8 bucks instead. it would have been more delicious and gratifying."

  • "Great food, but the noise level is enough that its difficult to hear someone even if they are sitting across from you. Other than that, the food is great, kinda expensive, so probably fit for a special occasion."

  • "The food was fantastic, a little on the expensive side though. Service was great. We were seated in the outdoor heated patio area and it was nice and quiet except for the street traffic."

  • "Can't say enough about the great time our party of five had! Our server Matt was attentive, professional and just plain old brilliant. We so loved that he took our orders with not pen or paper!!! However, the parking ($24) with validation was a bit shocking.... very sad face"

  • "Had a wonderful night out enjoying the pri-fixe menu at RockSugar. Unlike some restaurants, this menu offers a great variety of choices and the portions are perfect for sharing. Our favorites included the spring rolls, sweet & spicy tempura shrimp, grapefruit jicama salad and the Malaysian salmon. And of course, the yummy deserts don't hurt either! The caramelized banana cake with gelato and coconut doughnuts were the perfect ending to our meal. Service is attentive but not intrusive, so if you have a comfy booth, it's a nice romantic atmosphere. Will definitely be returning to RockSugar."

  • "For my wife's birthday I booked a table and dropped a note about the occasion. Came 15min late and table was still reserved for us. The amazing ambiance and decor I think were enough for us to bring us back. The food was even better and prices were reasonable. Both of my kids are not great asian food eaters, but they loved the food, the teenager ordered the filet, and 6 yr the honey chicken My wife and I have order the butter chicken and coconut shrimp skewers and it tasted amazingly, the recommended wine by the waiter was excellent Towards the end of the night the waiter surprised us with special desert on the house of beautiful cream brule cake with birthday candle. Rock Sugar you guys rock!! Definitely will come and recommend to friends"

  • "Was taken here for my birthday. The restaurant is gorgeous!!!!!! Words can't explain the fabulous decor. So comfortable,dark, fire pits, heated floors, heat lamps, waterfalls etc... The food is unbelievable. We were a party of 4 and ordered the price fixes for three and a couple of appetizers and it was more than enough. It seemed like the courses kept coming and coming. They were ALL delicious. You have to try the chicken coconut soup, and the grilled shrimp. One of my now favorite spots."

  • "everything was great though the noise level is much higher than I recall and we found it a little too noisy: there are many restaurants we have stopped going to even though we like the food just because the DIN is unbearable. Hope you can back it off a bit."

  • "Started off with Happy Hour appetizers then moved to dinner. Great selection of food and drinks. Great portion sizes for sharing. Service was excellent. One of my favorite places to go to try new dishes each time!"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Amazing decor and a fun atmosphere. Service is pleasant and efficient. The food lacks a little in authenticity and spicing is toned right down for Western tastes: this was my second visit and it was enjoyable."
    Dined on 3/14/2014
  • "every time my 29 year-old niece comes to visit we head to rocksugar. we love so many things on the menu, especially the green beans and asparagus dish and the eggplant. it's easy for everyone because there are so many vegetarian and meat-eater options. the desserts are fabulous; you have to try the banana cake which is not to be believed. the specialty drinks are delicious. so everyone is happy and the setting is beautiful."

  • "The staff at RockSugar-Century City is amazing! I made reservations for an inaccurate number of guest. It was not problem to accommodate the extra amount of people for my table. They closed at 10pm and did not rush my party out of the door! They let us stay, while they cleaned. Amazing food and friendly service. The server, Chris, was very helpful with suggestions and made the dinner experience enjoyable."

  • "The food here was awesome. Reminded me of a better version of Spice Table with decor like Toa or Buddakan. I really feel like this place just doesn't get enough love because it's not in a mall. Service was great and I will be coming back for large parties as the fire out room looked awesome."

  • "I've had several business lunches here and it is a wonderful place to meet and eat! The place is really interesting to look at and yet inviting, with low noise levels and attentive, not intrusive, waitstaff. To be completely fair, I haven't gone before 1:15 so I don't know what the vibe is for brunch or dinner. I think it could be a great place to "meet the girls" or stop in at after shopping. It feels a bit like a little hide a way or oasis somewhere in the Far East. The food is terrific too.( there are even some vegan and gluten free options for those who are sensitive)."

  • "We picked Rocksugar for a special occasion, remembering how amazing it was. Appetizers were ok - samosas made with phyllo and shrimp dumplings which were the best. The dipping sauces were excellent. The claypot beef, while tasty, was absolutely swimming in sauce - much too over powering. Each dish was brought out one at a time, 5-10 minutes apart, which we found a little odd. One dish never came and as we were completely finished, we were told it would be "coming out soon" so we cancelled it. We passed up the expensive little desserts at $9 apiece. The interior is well done, but there is music/noise coming from two sources that was clashing. Between that, and so many people on their BRIGHT cellphone screens in the dark, we won't be back."
    Dined on 3/9/2014
  • "Have been here many times and have favorite dishes. They never disappoint. The food is consistently good. The severs are attentive and friendly. The ambiance of the interior here is as beautiful as it gets for a restaurant. Would highly recommend this restaurant."

  • "While strict transitionalist on Asian cuisine might not enjoy this restaurant, most people will find the menu a good mix of various Asian dishes. We had 6 people in our group so we were able to try a lot of dishes. Dishes that were really good: Short Ribs Ginger Fried Rice Princess Shrimp Custard Banana Cake The Restaurant is also one of the most interesting and beautiful restaurants in LA."

  • "We had never eaten at Rock Sugar until our most recent bi-coastal trip to west Los Angeles (how sad for us). We ate there twice during this trip and both meals were terrific. The food is a great Asian/Thai blend, extremely delicious and served by a friendly, attentive, but not intrusive staff. The two specialty cocktails I tried were creative and refreshing. Absolutely have the Asian donut holes dessert! It's fabulous and a fun ending to the meal. We will absolutely return to Rock Sugar and have already spent days recommending it."

  • "Ate here with the hunny and my best pal and her boyfriend to celebrate vday. Food was amazing, atmosphere was beautiful, drinks were made to perfection and our waitress was super attentive. Four people, 12 drinks, 1 app, 5 dishes = a $295 bill. Not bad at all, in my eyes! Thx Rock Sugar for an amazing night!"

  • "This is the 3rd time I've been to RockSugar and I like it more and more each time. I went with 3 other people from work and we started out with the Crispy Imperial Rolls, Glazed Pork Belly Buns, and the Lacquered BBQ Ribs. All were very good. the rolls were cut into pieces so they were easily shared. The ribs were probably our fave thing. There were 3 Pork Belly Buns so I didn't have one (everyone else ate them in, like, 2 seconds). Then for the mains we had Shaking Beef, Indonesian Grilled Cilantro Shrimp, and the Malaysian Salmon. The absolute best BEST thing is the Shaking Beef. Tender pieces of filet in a savory sauce. Oh, and don't forget to get to donuts for dessert. To die for! The service was great as well. It's pricey but great!"
