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.

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.
