The pork belly and crispyThe pork belly and crispy pata entrees was amazing, as were the cocktails.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat placeThe place is great. Great food, great service, great atmosphere, was cheaper than i expected which is always nice. Nice selection of food too - a little different but not too out there. Nice change. Would definitely go back.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant.We went for lunch on Mother's Day. Food was excellent. Service was great. They served the dinner menu not the brunch menu. Deffinitly a Do Not Miss kink of place. Highly recommended.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMNeeded a different waiter, however,Sunda continues to be my favorite restaurant! The food and atmosphere are always perfect no matter the occasion. I regret that our waiter seemed to be missing most of the night. However, given our table location, there was enough other staff to pick up his flaws!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Love SundaWe went there for Mother's Day lunch. Service was very good for a busy River North restaurant. Moses was our waiter and he was very attentive. I had the pork entree and my son had the chicken entree. I always order the sushi, but this time decided to also try the regular menu. NOTE: the entrees are for SHARING. We ordered an entree each and ended up bringing more than half home. So, if you are not a heavy eater, I would definitely split a plate with your companion. Oh, and the chocolate mousse cake (yes, I made room for dessert) is yummy! Overall, Sunda, we will back - always!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFantasticA friend suggested Sunda as a date spot. We were certainly not disappointed. We arrived early for our reservation but were still seated right away. The staff was very friendly and our server chun was very friendly. He knew the menu backwards and forwards. He suggested the firecracker roll and lobster wagyu roll which were both top notch. We also tried the red dragon and spider rolls. They were both really nice, but I still cannot get over how good the first two were. The prices are very reasonable considering the setting, and quality. I would definitely make another a visit.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreatfrom cocktails to the last bite, absolutely amazing.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food from startOutstanding food from start to finish. More like an Aisian Tapas restaurannt.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways goodI've been to Sunda a few times now, and the only reason I didn't rate it as 5 stars is because my friend picked most of what we ordered. The best thing there is still the crunchy pig hidden lobster roll. But I thought everything else we had wasn't as exciting as it has been in the past. Any thing with tuna tar tar on it is fantastic. Fried rice was pretty amazing. The dynamite stick egg rolls were very underwelming. When I go back I'd stick to sharing a couple of appitzers and more adventerous sushi rolls.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMOut of towners visitWe had a party of five meeting from various cities. Heard this was a good place. It was definitely hopping. Sushi was good as well as the service.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Wonderful!I have now dined at Sunda twice, and being a lover of all Chicago food, I can safely say that my meals at Sunda are some of the best I've eaten in Chicago this year. The atmosphere is lively and energetic and makes guests feel like they are truly dining out on the town. I have never seen so many beautiful people, as in Sunda. They are always dressed to the nines. There service is wonderful and the waiters are always friendly, and attentive. The Brussels Sprouts Salad is to die for along with the delicious specialty cocktails. however, the highlight for me is always the Ridiculous,carrot cake dessert. Of all the delicious desserts I've had, this is definitely in my top 5 EVER. I highly recommend Sunda for a special girls night out.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMWaitress was outstanding inWaitress was outstanding in helping us navigate the menu.
Made for a stress free evening for a party of five.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways on pointI've been countless times and the food and service keeps me coming back. The staff is always attentive and if you're lucky Jessie or Mike will come around with a special dish or libation. Great for special occasions!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was excellent! ServerFood was excellent! Server really recommended a great assortment of delicious menu items. Hostess' rudeness made me want to turn around and leave. Our group of 8 had a difficult time conversing due to the high noise level. We will go back for the food but with a smaller group - maybe 4.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat spot. Will our serverGreat spot. Will our server was great. Get the brus sprout starter, it's amazing. Short rib was incredible too.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptional ExperienceReally enjoyed this place. The food, the service, the ambiance were all fantastic. I could come back here over and over. It's also not too expensive. Everyone in my group really liked it, too. The tofu scramble may sound unappealing, but was really incredible. I usually don't like tofu scramble, but this really impressed all of us. I would also recommend the Mushroom and asparagus salad. That was very well done. All in all, this is one of the best new asian restaurants I've been to.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMAnother delicious meal atAnother delicious meal at Sunda, except for the sea bass, which was undercooked. Our server made very helpful suggestions.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe sushi was delicious andThe sushi was delicious and the service was amazing.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBring ear protectionWe almost didn't stay for our meal. The noise level was painful. I would love to know what the decibel level was. In a factory setting, I am sure ear protection would be mandatory. It was such a shame as it detracted from the outstanding food we were served. The menu is incredibly large and diverse but attention to detail is evident on every plate. We would love to go back, but I'm not sure if I am "energetic" enough!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWe just love Sunda. BroughtWe just love Sunda. Brought friends who were new to the restaurant and they loved it, food as well as the look! We never see celebrities, but the Tribune always reports on them. We come for the food! The waiter was wonderful. Got us off to the theater right on time but no sense of rushing.4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMThe only issue that I hadThe only issue that I had with the restaurant is that it took over 20 minutes to seat our party of 3 even with confirmed reservations--Seemed to be a bit disorganized-- However the food was outstanding and the service was friendly and accommodating.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAsian tapasMy husband and I went there to celebrate my birthday and overall had a wonderful time. The staff was very accommodating in moving us to a table of our liking. We were initially seated in the bar area and requested to be moved to the dining area and they were very pleasant about moving us. That was great, but the first waiter was very friendly when he greeted us at our table. Our second waitress was nice, but not as pleasant as the first one. But we enjoyed our meal and would definitely recommend Sunda to others.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMDo NOT miss the brussels sproutDo NOT miss the brussels sprout salad! It is life altering :)4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for late post-theatreWent for late post-theatre dinner. Been meaning to try Sunda based on recommendations from friends and it did not disappoint. Get the Rock Shrimp Tempura, Spicy Tuna Crispy Rice and the Brussel Sprouts salad to start, then go from there.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and great service,Fantastic food and great service, but MAN is it loud.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing DelightsThis place is amazing. The food was crazy good and then on top of that we had the most excellent server that lead us to the most amazing selection of dishes. We were a party of 6 and EVERYONE said this was a place they would come back to again and again.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic is dining alone ...Way too loud!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Our party of three had to literally cup our hands and scream across table to be heard. Even then we missed most of the conversations. Food fantastic, service attentive and recommendations excellent, atmosphere is very appealing but noise is so loud that it ruins the whole experience. And I might add I requested a table in quiet part of dining room when I made my Open Table Reservation.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is great and I wouldThe food is great and I would recommend the Pork Belly steamed bows. The sushi is a little overpriced.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMfantastic restaurnat - thefantastic restaurnat - the noise level was very high but again it was later on a Friday nioght. Loved the food and will definitely be back.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMDon't miss this spot!Food was amazing! Service was wonderful! Don't miss the Brussels sprouts, I am dreaming of them! The only bad I could say is that is quite loud but that is nothing compared to the incredible dinner we had. I have been there twice now and both times were spectacular!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMCan't wait to go back!DELICIOUS!! We love Sushi and asked the waitress to make recommendations. Great choices - left feeling full but not overstuffed like when you eat a heavy meal. Waitress was bubbly, pace of bringing out the dishes was perfect. We didn't feel rushed nor like we were waiting for food. It is a loud atmosphere - lots of people and high ceilings but would definitely go back!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA gem in River North!Our first time at Sunda...our daughter had recommended it long ago. We loved the food and the ambience of the interior. LOTS of people of all ages. It was bustling!
Got right in (a bit early) for our 7 PM reservation.
Very pleasant and informative waitress. Great location. We would definitely go again and again.
Mary F. Barrington, IL4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMEnjoyed the brunch at SundaEnjoyed the brunch at Sunda very much. Food was great, and the Bloody Mary bar is awesome!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food. The BrusselExcellent food. The Brussel sprout salad is a must!4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place to go for anyGreat place to go for any occasion. We used a Gilt deal for a 5 course dinner for 2. The selection of menu was decent. The cod and the pork belly were great choices.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Food was great. HighlyThe Food was great. Highly recommend the tempura Rock Shrimp. Pad Thai was pretty standard, felt underwhelmed especially for a place with such an amazing reputation. Sushi was superb.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Tataki Wagyu Sashimi isThe Tataki Wagyu Sashimi is out of this world. We ordered 2 sets. Food is creative and fresh. Atmosphere was bustling, even on a Monday. A little pricey for sushi but everything is high quality. Drinks were enjoyable as well.4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was great and first fewFood was great and first few courses came out quickly but then took 45 minutes to get entree. Waitress was very nice and said the noodles didn't look right for pad Thai but I don't think noodles take 45 min. I have been to sunda several times and this was the only time I had been disappointed. Maybe it was just an off night.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMBrunch at SundaThis was my first time having brunch at Sunda as I always love their dinner! Brunch was good, had some eclectic options. Of the two brunch entrees, one lacked flavor and the other was a bit rich. Overall, everything was good but not sure if I would rush back for brunch. Dinner, yes!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMDeliciousMade reservations for 2 at 6 on a Sunday. Arrived and were able to be seated promptly. Chose to sit at sushi bar instead of table.
Great service. Never felt rushed yet never had to look for our waiter. He did a great job of helping us decide what to have. Ordered "foo foo" drinks for fun. Hello kitty and Blackberry Limeade. Drinks were well presented and tasty but a tad too sweet to have a second of the same. Had the Brussels sprout salad and it did not disappoint! Very tasty! Second round we ordered the duck bao buns-delicious! The buns were so tender and the duck and hoisin sauce were perfect! Decided to try a roll and went with one that was baked with scallops and lobster. Sooo good! No dessert, as we were perfectly satiated!!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food was excellent andThe food was excellent and promptly served. Our servers were friendly and professional.

I've dined at Sunda several times and have always had wonderful expierences, it was disappointing to wait 30 mintues past our reservation and then be seated at a table that was empty the entire time we waited. Our waitress was outstanding and very accommodating. Food is always outstanding, I wish I could eat Sunda's food for every meal!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMThe dinning experience wasThe dinning experience was excellent.

I've already told everyone since coming home that they have to try this restaurant!!! We'll be back!!!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways Fabulous!Sunda never disappoints with its fabulous Asian cuisine and knock out decor. It's a beautiful combinato. As hot as the crowd who gathers there.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMWe'll be backGreat food... We came here with a Gilt City Voucher and loved what they had to offer. A little on the pricier side, but well worth it.4/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
