I started with the Chicken Samosas. Packed with curry flavor, I rather enjoyed the ground chicken and veggie samosas, especially in combination with the cooling cilantro yogurt dipping sauce.
America's Next Great Restaurant." One of the contestants attempted to open a fast casual Indian food chain and the judges were pushing an "Indian taco" on him. I imagine this would be the result.
I followed the Imperial Rolls with Chicken Potstickers. They were large and quite tasty for chicken potstickers (which often are blander than other meat fillings).
The RockTail menu also features a decent cocktail menu for the very reasonable $6. Well drinks go for $5, wine for $5 and beer for $4.
Overall, I would say RockSugar didn't overwhelm me, but did impress me a tad. I went in with very low expectations, but after sampling five of their RockTail items, I definitely would recommend it to people searching for a decent Happy Hour in Century City. Every item comes with a unique dipping sauce - and the presentation in little Staub cast-irons is a classy touch. While it certainly is not the pinnacle of LA Asian cooking, the restaurant (and Happy Hour) offers one of the city's most diverse and massive Pan-Asian menus. In doing so, RockSugar enables couples and families with discerning members the ability to please everyone. You don't like Indian, but your girlfriend does? You like Thai, but she doesn't? RockSugar is your place.
