Went with two girlfriends for a cute catch up date night. The cocktails were so delicious and not crazy prices. We also got a few of the singles to snack on, and the food was genuinely amazing. We sat outside and there was only one other group so it wasn’t too loud, but it being a smaller location I can guess that when all the tables are full it could be a little noisy. The staff were so beautiful and friendly! Everything was so clean and well presented, my friends and I will definitely be returning even though we all live approximately an hour away we will 100% be coming back again with more people! HIGHLY recommend.

The food was pretty average. The chicken wings were not good at all. Only the bao buns were good

Food was average. Cocktails were good. They were out of the main fish for a few days. Average Thai food that’s over priced

The only thing I would suggest is to bring out the food slower for a banquet. We had 4 plates on our table and food gets cold when it just sits there

Service was very average. Table wasn’t cleared. The bill was put on our table before we had even had a chance to order dessert.

Great cocktails and starters / single serves. Fried chicken a standout.

Very disappointed with green and massaman curries. Both lacked depth with chewy chicken and dry beef.

Will go back, but only for cocktails and selection of their small offerings.

The staff were fantastic and very attentive. The food was extremely good and couldn't fault anything at all. The cocktails were good but for the prices i would have expected much more quality products to be used.
overall it was a great dinner and we will be back for the food, not so much the drinks but do hope they will pump up the cocktail list with some more premium products to compliment that fantastic food menu!

Food is pretty good and on the healthier side.
Pretty expensive for what you get but I guess that comes with going somewhere with fancy cocktails and cool vibes.

Rock sugar! The staff had no idea what was going on and had no sense of urgency. We wondered if the staff hadn’t worked in hospitality previously, or perhaps it was their first shift at Rock Sugar. If there was a manager on duty, they certainly weren’t present. We waited over one hour for food and when it arrived, half of the order was missing. The bar service was equally as appalling, our drink orders were mixed up, and also took an extremely long time to arrive, the alcohol content was poor and definitely not good value for money.

The food was substandard, the service absolutely appalling. We definitely won’t be returning, nor would I recommend.

Our waitress Chloe was seriously unbelievable! She made our experience so amazing and helped us decide what drinks to get. Her friendly personality made my group feel like we were so comfortable and she's defiantly one of the main reasons we'd come back. In terms of food and drinks, I've never had Thai food that tasted this nice. Everything we ordered blew us away, we even got seconds. The roti bread and the Thai chicken salad were to die for, I would 100% recommend going to rock sugar and especially asking for Chloe to serve you!

The food was average at best and overpriced. The two raw items were not fresh and tasted off. Cocktails were ok, but nothing to rave about.

We were incredibly ill in the hours after we ate at the restaurant.

Staff were attentive.

Overall, I would not return or recommend.

Great place, food and cocktails. Only thing I would say is that relax with trying to clear the plates from the table.
Staff were too keen to clear the plates when we were just finishing a dish or wanting to use the remaining dipping sauce.
This is generally a problem in a number of establishments. Just let the people eat and enjoy their dinner slowly. It makes people feel that you are rushing them out.

The staff didnot know what they were doing
they had no information about the banquet menu and everyone had different things to say
the place had re opened after a year and i believe they have completely forgotten how to handle customers
the had outdated menu
they were verbally dictating the menu
NOT AT ALL COOPERATIVE
PATHETIC EXPERIENCE AND WASTE OF MONEY

Style over substance. Got the $49 Feed Me option and felt underwhelmed and a little ripped off. The entrees started off well, but the mains were mediocre. The massaman curry was bland and had no heat, the meat was nice and tender but lacked flavour, and the potatoes were undercooked. The satay sauce (in name only) was an unappetising paste that we barely touched. Service felt extremely rushed, with staff dumping plates at the table with no explanation when you've barely started the previous course. Our $20 cocktail wasn't very interesting. You'd be better off ordering a la carte, or just going somewhere better. Won't be returning.
