It wasn’t much of an experience when the food is rushed out to you so quickly and the server is like a robot! The dinner experience should last longer than 40 minutes, to which we stretched after everything else was over.

Food was delicious - had the Seaweed Salad, Lobster Wagyu Roll, Sweet Potato Caterpillar Roll, and Panda Roll.

Service was great and then when they got a little busier, felt forgotten about at a couple moments. But staff was friendly overall.

Sat outside which was nice on a warm summer evening.

We were the only guests at 4:45, but Our table was crowded next to Servers area. They were noisily setting up tables and extra chairs around us. We love Sunda shrimp but we will never accept that seating again.

I love Sunda's menu and their food is delicious. However, the noise level in the restaurant is painful. We literally had to shout across the table to hear each other. I would not recommend this place for a business meal or anytime you want to talk to your dining partner.

It was suppose to be a birthday celebration. First off they tried seating us at a high top table, when I requested partial booth seating, after speaking to the manager they accommodated us to the low seating area. Nothing was special regarding celebrating a birthday etc. my husband had to order his own dessert, drinks were good but the service was very delayed. Wouldn’t recommend celebrating a special occasion here. Good for just an casual every day dining.

This is a great place to go for young adults. It's a hotspot for young corporate workers or college students looking for a fun time after hours. The food is delectable and Michelin guide recommended through 2016. Sunda was listed as best sushi in Chicago a year or so back and this definitely holds true.

Reservation was at 930, our group of 4 had a couple of drinks with our apps which were all great. We were told that the kitchen closed at 1015 and we needed to place our meal orders. No problem, got the oder in and got a nice bottle of wine. We finish desert about 11 and order and Uber...not more than 5 minutes later the manager tells us we have to go, the restaurant is closed. What a way to ruin a good experience...

rude. they tricked us into making a 9:30 reservation when they closed at 10. when i arrived at said time they told me that they were closing soon and to leave. absolutely disgraceful. me and my best friend were re-doing my golden birthday because on the actual day she got admitted to the hospital and i was left alone to rot in my emotions. will never go back.

The reservation process was easy and simple, but the service felt unorganized and slow and placing an order in a timely fashion was difficult. Despite of beautiful setting, the atmosphere was abrasive and loud. The biggest disappointment were the undercooked vegetables in my vegetarian dish.

Sunda has been a favorite of ours for a while. We have enjoyed meals there many times. We are understanding that after reopening, many restaurants have suffered with their service. Our server did well but it was not up to the usual Sunda standard. Our dishes were delivered but she never came back to tell us anything about the servings. In the past we were used to the server letting us know about the dish, mixing the fried rice together, and cautioning us about the hot and spicy sauces. We did not see our server often enough during our meal. I had indicated in our reservation that we were celebrating my son‘s birthday. That was forgotten all together.
Also, the restaurant is an incredibly loud. Be prepared for that if you have never been to Sunda. It really struck me this time as we were yelling at each other across the table.

Amazing food. The Dim Sum was phenomenal. The sashimi was out of this world. Truly a wonderful place to dine. And this after our first impression was to leave... Great place to eat, but oddly, there is music blaring as you walk in the door and it feels more like a night club. Once you are seated the music fades into the background as is only loud by the front door and bar. Strange. But if I could make a suggestion, I would lose the music unless your typical clientele are people who don't like to talk. Just saying...

The tables are pushed so close together in spots that it make customers uncomfortable. There were plenty of open tables available and I hate that they do this. Other than that, everything else was great.

Extremely understaffed. Service was terribly slow. Seated 15 min after reservation. Guests shared food allergy and it was ignored. Not sure if they were having an off night, but it has never been this bad before.

We are regular visitors to Chicago after living here for many years. We always make Sunda one of our must do’s on every trip. Unfortunately, last night was our last. Our server seemed not interested, rushed our order and the items came out “out of order” as a result we ordered too much food and the last dish was a noodle crab dish that tasted like pasta. Sadly, It was terrible.

My Wife and I were looking forward to a great Sushi meal. This wasn’t just a sushi place though! So much more. The sticky rice with Wagyu beef was one of the best things we had ever tasted. The atmosphere was lively, but not so loud that we couldn’t hear each other. The food was fresh, lively and just right! Can’t wait to go back and try more of everything. You won’t be disappointed.

We were on vacation in Chicago and Sunda was just a few steps away from our hotel. We wanted Asian cuisine so thought we try it. The food was ok, tasty for a twist on the Filipino dishes we ordered. Looked it up and sounds and looks pretty upscale.
The place is noisy.. the decor and ambiance would have been good but the noise level made it seem low class. You did not get to have the upscale experience despite the decor because the noise killed it.

The pork belly bao buns were to die for. The “great white bite” escolar was alright at best. Gambler is very very very HOT, do not recommend but was funny to watch, I could never eat that by myself due to the level of spice. Good sake selection and great service overall. The place has such great ambiance

The service was okay. The bus boy and water guy was more attentive than the server. He left our empty drinks on the table every time he came by. Seems like they should be picked up right away especially at almost $20 each!
The food was good. First time there and would go back try other things. The inside area is much more appealing the the high top tables so I would recommend those.
