I was excited to take my partner for his first time dining at Rock sugar, and much to my dismay; our dining experience was very average. I've been an avid diner with you guys both on weekdays and weekends and it seems like the overall experience missed the mark. Perhaps due to the fact that it was a Sunday but I had such high hopes. However, the banquet, which I've had 4 times now, wasn't as flavoursome as I recalled it to be. What also affected our experience, is during our seating for our booking, we noticed that the table was unbalanced and I requested to be moved to a vacant table yet the waitress insisted that she'd get on her knees to fix it. It was very unfortunate that we were seated next to the restaurant door and kept getting the cold draft from diners coming in and out of the establishment.
When each course was served to us, by the time it reached our table the food was room temperature and we weren't even asked about how our meals were. Don't get me wrong, I'll be back to dine here with company; it's just a shame that my usual: flavour-packed and exquisite table service, wasn't delivered the night that my partner and I dined.

The food was very over hyped and not worth the money. I've had better thai at my local take away and it cost me a fraction of the meal at Rock Sugar. Nice cocktails.

Was very excited to go here given the very good reviews.

The restaurant looks nice but unfortunately that is where it stops. The food was terribly bland. No salt, no flavour and no sauce. We were a large group of 9 so tried quite a few dishes. The beef cheeks were well cooked but had no seasoning and no sauce and no flavour. What made this worse was that we were recommended rice with this dish wish cost $5 for a single serve! It was the same story for the Mussaman Curry.

We wondered whether this was more a bar than a restaurant, but after trying four of the cocktails, they were just as bland as the food.

The staff were rude and seemed generally disinterested which just topped things off.

I will be actively discouraging people from going here.

Cocktails and food was amazing. Th ebanquet was great value for money and delishious.
The service needs to be improved slightly we were waiting awhile for drinks and food order to be taken. Noise was too loud. They need acoustics on the walls/ceilings.
Overall great and Ill be back!

Everything was wonderful, but at the start of our meal we felt quite rushed as lots of plates of food were being put onto our table and we had not finished the others just yet.

I have been to Rock sugar a few times and have never been disappointed. This time we choose the $50 feed me option. The quality and variety of the food was outstanding and we definitely did not leave hungry. Already looking forward to my next visit.

The curries weren’t curries and watered down. The food wasn’t pleasant and bland. Rice crackers too hard. We got the banquet 50 dollars each and we’re not happy with how much we spent to what we got.

I’m an avid diner at Rock sugar Melbourne and every time I pop in for a mid week dinner with a colleague or if it’s for a birthday dinner and drinks, I’m constantly impressed with the quality. Not only is your menu accomodating and delicious, it’s complimented by the outstanding service! Keep up the great work and a massive shout out to your GM Ally! I’ll be back soon guys

I think the wine was way too expensive. The baby banquet was good value but overall our bill was quite expensive. It would also be great to offer some extra vegan options ☺️☺️

Great food! The rockstar martini is an absolute must!
The seating at the bar is not the comfiest - I would recommend asking for a table.
I would definitely go again :)

Far too expensive for what it was. Service wasn’t great either. No offence but you can get better at many other similiar restaurants. Was a disappointment sorry to say!

My second time at Rocksugar and I just loved it again. We were with a group so banquet was mandatory but loved the variety of foods that came out and only at the cost of $39. Bargain!!
