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.

The restaurant is nicely decorated, fairly good acoustics. Food is mediocre. The menu selection good. Our server was not well versed on the menu and not attentive and aware of our needs. We had to repeatedly ask for things that we had ordered, table was left with empty dishes, we had to get flatware, extra plates and linen from a table close by. Overall, I would not return to restaurant or wouldn’t recommend it.

From Boston and this is our 1st and only go-to dinner, everytime I come out to visit my daughter who has lived in LA for 7 years. We always try different great restaurants all other nights during my many stays in LA. We always go here 1st and it's our special place for many reasons on many levels. Excellent quality food, creative cuisine with innovative taste, combination and presentation, healthy options galore, best ambiance, friendly and responsive service, great value for high end experience, non-stuffy and laid back casual but elegant atmosphere, greatest location for pre and post dining activity...the list goes on. Thank you to ownership, management, chef, servers, bartenders, waitstaff and hosts...you have a team to be proud of and an end product that beats all others in an ultra competitive landscape. You deserve to be acknowledged and appreciated.

I love the ambiance and setting but this time my guest and I were left floating alone on our island as we watched others around us arrive after and leave before us. We ordered only two items for starters that took over half an hour and only one came out. Our Main courses took forever that we spent almost two hours dining on three items.

Such a beautiful restaurant and awesome ambiance with the high ceilings, detailed decor, waterfalls, the Buddha Room, outdoor patio dining, different rooms, decorated booths, etc. Food is good, but it could be better for a Pan-Asian restaurant. Cocktails are good, but several of them are too sweet. The service on the night we went started out good, but our waitress must have had a break during our meal so the latter half of our meal consisted of different people coming by only every so often and things got confusing. My OpenTable notes were great for getting the seating I wanted though!

Met a business colleague for dinner who I hadn't seen in over a year and a half. The wait staff were really patient since we had some catching up to do before we could even think about ordering. Most of the food came up pretty quickly after we ordered but we did have to ask about our soup. Not sure if they had forgotten or if they had gotten too busy with a few large parties. But I think they took the soups off the bill. Anyway, it was a good night and I would come back here.

Pretty restaurant and very good Asian fusion cuisine. It gets a bit pricey but I am sure their rent in the Century City mall is pretty high. Service is very good and wait staff is able to suggest items from the menu, which is helpful.

Don't eat here if you have special dietary needs. They didn't not have alternatives to their sauces or marinades.

We have enjoyed eating here since it opened. Some time had passed since our last visit, so I don't if things have changed, or our taste has changed, but everything seemed to be overly sweetend. Since I'm supposed to be cutting back on sugars in general, it was not the greatest outing for me this time. Our waiter was very nice, though the timing of the food service seemed a bit random. Nevertheless, the ambience of the main dining room is still great, and I'm sure at some point we'll be back again. It's a fun place and the CC Mall re-do is quite a thing to see as well.

This is one of the most striking restaurant spaces in Los Angeles. The Pan Asian cuisine is unusual in that each dish is very well prepared by a chef indigenous to the country of origin. The fish and vegetable dishes were conspicuously well prepared.

The minute you walk into the entrance you feel as though you’ve been transported to some sort of Thai temple. The ambiance is spectacular. It’s great to dine with a group and share many plates. There are so many great choices but beware that the food can be a bit spicy, but it’s all very very tasty. We always enjoy our meals here.
