Had a birthday dinner for my friend. Ordered a few appetizers, few rolls of sushi and a couple drinks. Place is great for dinner. The staff was sincere and great.

Definitely get the Brussel Sprouts and Spicy Edamame to kick off the dinner!

The quality of the fish in the sushi was simply fantastic. I found the sushi rice to be sweet which isn't a deal breaker. The Bao Bun was sweet as well.

It was far to noisy and not a great place to dine with kids. Food was excellent and came out quickly. I would recommend this place for a girls night, date, young couples.

The food is amazing! The best sushi and oxtail potstickers. Our server was also very helpful and attentive. He had plenty to recommend on the menu and also had recommendations for us on our upcoming trip. We will absolutely be back!

Someone please hire an acoustical engineer to attempt to quiet this please down a bit. The food was fabulous. The service was ok, but the noise level was ridiculous. Not sure we will be returning to this place.

My fiancé and I dined in at Sunda for our anniversary. It was our first time dining at Sunda and we thought the food and service was excellent. We ordered the oxtail potstickers, stuffed avocado, lobster and wagyu sushi roll, seared salmon entree, and avocado ice cream for dessert. Our server surprised us with a complimentary chocolate cake dessert for our anniversary, which we thought was a really nice gesture. Everything was delicious. We enjoyed a delightful dining experience at Sunda and would definitely recommend to our friends and family, and we will definitely be back :) Thank you.

I had really been looking forward to this experience and was left a bit disappointed. I work in hotels and restaurants so given that perspective, I found the value for the food/beverage to be a touch high. Our server was clearly (1) of (2) for the entire space. He was clearly juggling a bit too much and during our 2 hour meal, rarely saw him for more than a few moments. One busser in particular kept dropping things and it became a joke between my partner and I whenever he picked something up if it would end up clanging to the ground. I find that incredibly distracting for a fine dining establishment. Everyone we spoke to was kind enough but my service could have been more personable, the server could have shared in the experience instead of popping around and overall the ambiance could have been improved. Our experience ended up being just okay for a nearly $100 per person cost.

We have eaten here many times and were taking out of town guests here for their first visit. We had a reservation and were initially sat at a table next to hostess stand in the sushi chefs work area. Embarrassed that with a reservation, this was our table, we asked to move. We were given a better table but our server was not great. Thankfully, we could count on great food and that didn’t disappoint! The night started off on a bad note but we all ended up enjoying a great meal. Just disappointed with so many open tables they would give a party with a reservation the worst table in the house.

Excellent food, service and ambiance. Dessert was good but not the reason I would go back or recommend the restaurant. Wine list on the high end on cost.

Excellent meal. The server was very helpful and knowledgeable. The staff also was very accommodating when we realized that there was an ingredient to which my husband is allergic in one of our chosen dishes. Great gluten free choices as well.

The cocktails were ice heavy. Entirely too much ice in cocktails. Food was served lukewarm and was underwhelming. Chicken Szechuan was hard to chew and very sweet. The pork adobo fried rice wasn’t flavorful and looked thrown together. This place is more hype than flavor or quality. Would not recommend this place.

Food was just alright. I’ve had sushi that is better from neighborhood spots. So for $20 rolls you’re better off going somewhere else for sushi. Only tried one entree dish, the crab noodles which were decent. Drinks were pretty good.

Lifelong Chicagoans, relocated away a few years ago. In town to visit family, and we took the kids here - 9, 12, and 14. It was fantastic. Several dishes family style and some sushi and sashimi. It was fantastic and very kid friendly.

I am very surprised at how accommodating the staff is, and that they actually read and took into consideration the notes I put in for when I reserved the table (for 8). They made a note of 4 birthdays being celebrated, and provided dessert for each one to make each birthday celebrant feel special! The maitre' d is exceptional, and so was the service staff.

Additionally, the food was great! I would venture out of the sushi menu (the sushi were great, but nothing too new or inventive). Everything we ordered outside of sushi were exceptional, and if you like shishito peppers, theirs is the best I've had yet. Highly recomment the lemongrass lollipops and wings, and everyone on our table seemed to love the curry dishes as well.

I was worried that "the portion sizes are enough to share", but they were very correct. Everyone had a decent amount of each dish we ordered, and then some for seconds at times. Reasonable portions, and very reasonable price for the quality of food.

We have been here over 5 times and the food and service are as excellent as they can be. Their brussel spouts salad is to die for. If you like yours crispy make sure to order "sauce on the side".

Very nice place with great food and drinks. Great lighting and decor. Would be an awesome date night restaurant but the noise level is a bit high for any regular conversation short of yelling at the person across the table from you. Better for business outing or dinner with friends.

I've been here for dinner before, and it's always quite crowded. Apparently nobody realizes they serve brunch, as there were only a few tables occupied when we went on a Saturday. People are missing out! The food was delicious - everyone loved their dishes. The bloody mary and mimosa were alright, not the best we've had but definitely not the worst, and reasonably priced, which surprised me. Service was excellent. I'd definitely go back!
