About RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen
RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen showcases the cuisines of Thailand, Vietnam, Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Unlike fusion cuisine, each dish on RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen’s extensive menu is authentic to its country of origin. From the mouth-watering Indian Samosas to the savory Vietnamese Shaking Beef, the entire menu will transport you to a spice-filled, welcoming corner of the globe. No visit to RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen is complete without trying one of the signature desserts prepared in our in-house bakery including our Caramelized Banana Custard Cake and Warm Coconut Doughnuts. Taking our name from an essential ingredient used in Asian cooking, RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen was created by restaurateur David Overton and Singapore-raised, New York-trained chef Mohan Ismail.

RockSugar Southeast Asian Kitchen Ratings and Reviews
Excellent meal! The service was impeccable.
We loved Shandy.
The spare ribs appetizer was great! And so what the Salmon tartare. Loved the bananas, chocolate, an granola dessert.
I really believe the service we received made the food taste even better! We will be back!
I was disappointed. The food reminded me of a tourist trap. Nice presentation, but poor quality and badly prepared. I sent my dinner (salmon) back twice before surrendering. Though in fairness, nothing was great, only adequate at best. I wasn't expecting traditional or authentic. I was expecting flavor beyond bottled teriyaki sauce and salt (lots of salt). To end on a bright note, the wait staff is excellent.
Great water service. Wasn’t happy that they would try to bus the table when I was obviously in the middle of a conversation. Food was good, not incredible. Buts a mall restaurant so it was good for a mall restaurant.
Made a reservation for Valentine’s Day a week in advance so we were seated right away which was great. Over all it was lovely and I would go again
We were a party of 2 dining on Valentine Day. We had a variety of appetizers to include Samosa - which were cold and had to be sent back and upon return weren’t much better, they weren’t hot they were warm - we also had Spring rolls that were about the same in temperature as the Samosa, warm but not hot - we also had the Crunchy Calamari which was as advertised, good texture and the accompanying sauces were surprisingly tasty. As we moved to the main event we ordered the Whole Fish which was Bass, this dish was a disappointment as it didn’t taste as if it were cooked as thoroughly as it should have been. For those who know this dish, it requires work and a bit of patience given you have to skillfully work your way around the bones in the fish and I have to admit that my effort wasn’t rewarded with what has the potential to be a very good menu option if done right - I wouldn’t recommend this dish. The service was good and attentive our server did his job well but the kitchen staff let him down. The restaurant was very trendy in appearance but perhaps darker than it had to be. On balance this was a disappointing dining experience for us as we are visiting from out of town. We decided to try this place from reviews we read which by in large were very good, however given our dining experience I wonder what other diners saw that we missed.
My friend and I ate here for lunch. We had vegetable spring rolls which we shared and each had a curry dish. The food was excellent. The service was also very good. The wait staff was knowledgeable and attentive. I definitely recommend Rock Sugar for either lunch or dinner.
Century City Mall is much more inviting and easy to get to and from parking lot once you know where you are... Greeter a bit aloof - server very professional and very accommodating for gluten free options and wonderful service by all staff throughout meal- food (pad thai and curry) came out quickly- hot and plentiful for sharing! Looking forward to going back again and again to try more choices.
Made reservations via Open Table for our group. Decor is neat and different and We were excited to give it a try. When we arrived it took a while for them to seat us. It was a cold windy evening and they brought the eight of us to an outside table in a wind tunnel. There was no protection on this side of their patio and th wind whipped right through. We walked by two other large unoccupied tables in a protected section. We informed the hostess that we needed a different option and suggested the two tables we passed. She went back to get a manager, hitch took a while, who informed us that it would be a long wait for a different table. We suggested the open tables and by the time she made her decision to seat us there, other parties had already been seated there. They created a table for us in the protected patio area. While we ate, another group was brought to our original table and refused to sit there as well.
Server was pleasant and accommodating. Food was good but nothing spectacular. We ordered both the chicken and veggie samosas which were probably my favorite, lettuce Wraps, Brussels sprouts, shaking beef, flat rice noodles, carmel chicken and a shrimp dish. Perhaps the start has colored my overall opinion but I won’t be back.
Allen was a fantastic server. We were completely taken care of, from my vegetarian friend to the birthday girl. I can't believe I've never been here. The dishes were delicious, the decor GORGEOUS, the seating uber comfortable. When it's warm enough I'd love to do happy hour at the tables with fire pits in front. I would come here again and again with a small group or a really big one. The employees are consummate professionals and you can relax and have fun.
