An order of lumpia was placed on our table. We did not order the lumpia but the server said "enjoy it since we can't take it and reserve it." People in our reservation started to eat them, and then 5 minutes later a food runner came by and picked them up and asked "did you order these?" and we said no so he took the half eaten lumpia and put them on the correct table that ordered them. The table happened to be right next to ours so we warned them that we ate out of it, but the disregard from the food runner was absolutely appalling. The food was great, but the fact that it was taken from our table and placed on another table is disgusting. Hoping this doesn't happen often.

I have been to Sunda numerous times and found this past Saturday coming ip a bit short. Noise level of the music played was all too loud to hear servers through their masks, seating was poor ( at least for us). The table for two was super small to have a majority of our order all brought at once. Apparently the staging that i have generally experienced at Sunda doesn’t happen on weekends. After our first onslaught of food there was a solid 20 minute gap after that was cleared and our last two sushi rolls were brought out! Drinks from bar were also incredibly slow. Overall great food but the rest was disappointing this time. Two weeks ago i would have given Sunda an A plus all day long!

Dined here last night for my fiancé’s birthday dinner after about a week of research (we were visiting from LA) and made reservations. We were super excited to try the food and experience the restaurant; however that quickly dissipated when we arrived - the hostess staff were unwelcoming, unfriendly, and our table was not ready. They were not even apologetic and didn’t offer us the option to get seated at the bar while waiting. Their tone of voices and faces looked miserable, which made me feel miserable for the 20 minute wait (again we had reservations - so what’s the point of making reservations for a special occasion??). Anyways the food was great and the wait staff awesome - the hostess staff could learn a lot from them, perhaps training them more on customer service and presentation since they are the initial face(s) of the restaurant.

We went on a week night and it was busy by the time we left. We ordered the brussel sprouts (delicious), the chicken pot stickers (good) and the red dragon roll (good). The food was good but nothing too crazy to write home about. The staff made the experience- 10/10.

Very noisy, could barely hear the person across the table. Perhaps the music was too loud which made people yell out causing even more cacophony. Food was mediocre to be honest….a desperate attempt at fusion. Finally, way to pricey all across the menu for what you get.

My wife and I were not impressed with Sunda. It had been recommended to us by a few folks so we went but didn’t like it very much:

The good: The cocktails were interesting and tasted good. The oxtail pot stickers were delicious. Our waiter did a great job in a very busy atmosphere.

The bad: It was a lot louder than I expected. The background music was loud which caused the diners to all speak loudly. The lumpia was meh at best. I grew up in the Philippines and have had lumpia many times, so I’m a bit spoiled but these tasted like they just bought frozen lumpia, thawed them in the microwave, and put them on a plate. My wife, who is a huge szechuan chicken fan and had had some of the best in her life the afternoon before in Chinatown, and I both thought the szechuan chicken was ok at best. The pieces were not bite sized, so they were hard to eat with chopsticks, and the main flavors I got out of it were peanut butter and cumin. A lot of cumin.

The ugly: I never got the dish I ordered. Luckily my wife’s dish was big enough that we split it but after waiting 30 minutes for my meal, we just told the waiter we were done and asked for the check.

I would not recommend this place unless you want to impress anyone by spending a lot of money on “new Asian” cuisine.

We got seated 15 minutes after our reservations. Then waited another 20 minutes for a waiter. They forgot two meals and my friend didn’t get to eat until I was done eating dinner. Food was very average we got oxtail dumplings “spicy edamame” which was not spicy at all just burnt. Then we got garlic noodles which were cold unfortunately but the flavoring was average nothing special. We got the red dragon roll it was good but too much rice. And my friend waited 50 minutes for chicken pad Thai and it wasn’t even good unfortunately. Overall the aesthetic was very nice and great for a fun night but the service and food were just not it.

Went here for an anniversary dinner, and highly recommend! It's pricey but very worth it, especially for a special occasion. Pork belly steamed buns and oxtail potstickers (along with either of the crispy rice dishes) are MUSTS!

Absolutely abysmal after being a fan for many years I wouldn’t go back if you paid me. Sat down and ordered then zippo. Yes they were busy but no food and the waiter was beyond useless, didn’t care and didn’t apologize. I complained to management and finally the food came, it was mediocre and not warm. Horrible experience, many more places to go in Chicago, save your money
