Worth a Try (Once) 1/9/2012

This is a beautiful place to go for a date or a special occasion. The decor and the service here are wonderful, but the food is really a problem. Almost everything I have had here is just so oily it ruined the whole experience. That said you can have a nice evening here if you can just avoid the high fat choices. Unfortunately, that is hard to do here. more

Asian Food, Yes. Good, Yes-ish 11/15/2011

Let's just jump right into it shall we? Really satisfying experience. Went with my cousin to this place hoping it will not be another one of ""those places"" and it wasn't. As we looked over the menue we came accross the tasting menu which had really nice choices on it. Ususally the tasting menu isn't very inspired. We had a trio of apps. - Crispy Calamari, which was just OK, needed more flavor. Laquered ribs, which were really good, sticky with a little spice to them, and then we had the potstickers, which were nice, but just a bit greasy... nothing to lose any sleep over. 2nd course we had the coconut chicken soup, which was really nice. I was hesitant because I thought it would be too sweet, but there was a really nice balance between the coconut and the chicken. There were also sweet snap peas and shiitaki mushrooms which were a welcome balance. Also, the soup had a really nice heat to it, and by heat I mean spicy, as in hot... you feel me? Main course was made up of their bsil Thai chicken, which was spicy and really good, as well as the shaking beef. This was kind of like a mongolian beef, but the meat was not sliced into paper thin pieces, these had mass and was a welcome change. We also had a side of noodles and spicy cauliflower, which was a really nice balance to the meal. Final course was the fresh doughnuts and Caramelized Banana Custard Cake. They brought the doughnuts with the hole covered by the little piece of dough side by side so it kinda looked like a pair of breasts, which, what can I say, amused the adolescent boy in me. But the real star of the show was the Caramelized Banana Custard Cake! Peter Burstyn is a former chef from NY and is now an insurance agent with Farmers Insurance.

NOT Thai Food - Disappointing 6/8/2011

Not sure why this place got Best Thai in 2010, it's NOT authentic Thai Food. It's Americanized wanna-be Asian food. more

Disappointing 10/14/2010

I have to say it is a very pretty place...but the food and service were terrible. more

Love This Place 8/15/2010

It's a good thing this restaurant is not next door to my house. I would be there every night. Try the Lacquered Ribs, Samosas, or the incredible Vietnamese Chicken Wings. My personal favorite is the Crab with Cellophane noodles. Nice menu choices for vegetarians as well. Cocktails border on the sweet side, but they are very creative and all hand crafted. Staff is cordial and efficient. The atmosphere is over the top. The communal table at the front is great for people watching! more

Southeast Asian Cuisine 8/15/2010

This is one of the best Pan Asian restaurants I have been to in LA. \r \r The food is great and is designed to be shared - Asian family style. The service was beyond great. We had a small party for our office and the staff and managers at RockSugar were very attentive and knowledgeable. \r \r The Private DIning Room is very elegant and perfect for our small group. The menu they created for our event was fantastic. It was very nice to have all of the different flavors from SE Asia.\r \r This restaurant is a must visit. more

RockSugar Pan Asian Kitchen is Outstanding! 8/15/2010

Love this restaurant!\r \r The food, service and ambiance are exceptional. The staff are extremely attentive with out fail. The quality of food is equal to similiar restaurantsI frequent in NY. The decor is stunning and enviting. \r \r I have seen quite a few celebrities each time I have been there. It is certainly a place to enjoy great food, service and to be seen! more

terrible service, great food 6/13/2010

We took some out of town guests to rocksugar, one of our favorite restaurants today. Hostess told us there was no room except in the patio (restaurant was COMPLETELY empty when we got there) because of large parties. When we complained, we were seated inside but way in the back (which was fine as we had two babies with us). Service was incredibly slow -- took 2 hours for lunch! As we were leaving, did not see too many large parties and we still saw many empty tables. Complained to the manager, Eric, who was not terribly concerned/sympathetic but gave us his card (I'm not sure what purpose that will serve). Despite the great food and wonderful atmosphere, unlikely we will return in view of the second rate treatment we received. If rocksuger is becoming a westside restaurant with attitude -- definitely NOT worth a visit! Pros: love the food Cons: slow service, second-class treatment in an empty restaurant. more

amazing atmosphere 5/4/2010

the decor here is great, the lounge area in front is both cool and comfy; the food is pretty good but doesn't blow you away\r \r good to meet a friend but not to impress a foodie Pros: amazing atmosphere, really cool Cons: food is pretty good but not as amazing more

Great Decor & Drinks Pretty Good Foo 4/17/2010

Really nice place to go for drinks & appetizers after shopping. The drinks, service and unique look of the place are a hit. Most of the unusual dishes are a hit with a few misses for me mixed in. Pros: Unique atmosphere different food Cons: sometimes the different food is a miss more

Hit or Miss 2/2/2010

Rock Sugar is a bit hit or miss. Some stuff on the menu is great, other stuff is just strange. I've been there twice, and the first time I loved it, the second I didn't at all. The drinks are great though, so go for happy hour and check out the place. Pros: ""different"" food, cool place Cons: Pricey, weird food more

Good for the Price 2/1/2010

Go here for lunch. They have a recession priced pre-fixe where they offer either 3 courses for $12.95 or 4 courses for $14.95. I went for the Dine LA menu which basically offered the same choices. The caramel chicken is seriously deeelish and the coconut doughnuts are something to be had. more

Its true, mall food CAN be great 12/15/2009

Recently had an event at Century City Mall and since Houston's is always a 3 hour wait decided to try this one. What a great surprise. Yummy pan asian dishes, good service, actually kind of cool interior. A bit of a mega restaurant but respectable for any date. Tons of options on dumplings and currys and fish and... really there is quite an extensive list. Pros: Food, service Cons: its still a Mall more

Cool Atmosphere 12/14/2009

The decor is amazing...you walk into a nice patio with white sofas and candle lit tables and once you enter...well, you just have to go check it out. The food is good. I've had better thai food for cheaper but you're paying for the dining atmosphere. It'd be a good place to take a date before catching a movie at AMC. more

Very cool place. Very good food 11/16/2009

Love the tast meun. Love the idea of sharing food and food is great. Place is beautiful. Price is fair. It is good to go as a date.\r \r \r Love it! Pros: everything is good Cons: nothing more

Favorite Restaurant 8/22/2009

I love this place. It's become one of my favorites. Rock Sugar looks like it belongs in a Vegas hotel. The food is amazing. Great appetizers too! They also have a great drink menu. You seriously have to try this place. Great for dates or just a bunch of friends. Pros: great ambiance, yummy food Cons: nada more

A HOLE IN THE WALL part 1 7/8/2009

Most of us know of a restaurant where the food they serve is just delicious but the place is just so-so, we often refer to them as “ a hole in the wall”. ROCKSUGAR is just the complete opposite….after visiting the place last weekend, this place is a “BIG EMPTY” hole in the wall, nothing much to offer in terms of food. RockSugar’s décor and ambiance is well done, very impressive, but management forgot to put the same attention to their cuisine. \r \r Me and my husband with another couple decided to try the place since we were at Century City last Saturday. We provided ourselves enough time, about 2 ½ hours to have dinner before going to the cinema for the 9:15 pm screening. The menu is well written, lots of choices with very interesting details, one can’t help salivating as you make your pick. I ordered the black cod. My husband who is not a big fish lover ordered the noodles with chicken; our friends both ordered the salmon dinner entrees. As we were ordering the waiter told us that entrées are normally shared…family style? Maybe the servings are big to be shared? We also ordered some fried rice to go with our entrees to complete our meals. My girlfriend wanted some wine to go with the food, but the waiter said they were out of Pinot….it was early in the evening on a Saturday night…..unbelievable????\r \r Our waiter came back to double check that he has the right orders from each of us…good, he is checking …but a few minutes later, he brought a bowl of fish soup that nobody remembered ordering….waiter claims that he wants us to try the soup but will not be charged for it….nice gesture …but really…the waiter must have made a mistake , we never thought this was a pre-cursor of other mistakes coming? Our orders came within some reasonable waiting time…but not the fried rice. Also, it became apparent that the waiter’s suggestion to share the entrees must have been a joke …the food on the entrée plate is barely the size for an appetizer, where is the rest of the black cod? I saw more tofu than fish. Salmon pieces were definitely not big enough to share…no way!\r \r We kept waiting for the fried rice to come….our entrees are cold by now…the waiter never came back to our table to see if all is OK…actually the water boys or the waiter-runners were around us…with a standard response when we asked about the rice….”I just checked on your order, it’s on its way out”. At this point all four of us have decided to just try our entrées without the rice….how can a pan asian restaurant make people wait for their rice? If they even know anything about asian food, rice is a basic part of the meals. How can a pan asian kitchen not have rice in their kichen? I don’t understand why it takes so long to bring the rice to our table. At the end of our meals, one of us finally made eye contact with our waiter to tell him to cancel the order for rice….for which we received an insincere apology…”I’m so sorry about that!” Really now….\r Pros: nice restaurant decor Cons: pricey and tasteless cuisine more

Fun Place, Not so good food 5/15/2009

Great service and a fun place to eat. The food is maybe a 5 on a 10 scale. Mediocre is a generous description. Pros: Service and decor Cons: Food is mediocre at best more
