What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.5

Does eating at Sunda feel like eating in the club? Yes, but you don't have to love the ChampagnePapi lifestyle to love this restaurant.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

What a find! We thoroughly enjoyed everything, especially the brussel sprout appetizer. The curry, noodles and rice with beef was unbelievable (so tender). Drinks were delicious as well. Flavors were so robust and delicious. We LOVED everything & will be back when we visit Chicago.

We had a get together with our friends from California. We have been to Sunda several times and we loved the food there so we keep coming back for special occasions. We always order the sisig and the pancit canton whenever we go there. We want to try something new so the waiter suggested that we order the crispy brussel sprouts. It was so good that we had to order another serving! Sunda never fails.

It was our nephew and wife’s anniversary. They provided a complimentary cake and gift certificate which was very nice. I feel that the prices are higher than comparable downtown restaurants especially the sushi rolls.

Amazing dinner! We were celebrating a birthday and the food was outstanding. The noise level made it difficult to hear the waitress. Service was a bit slow at times but well worth the wait.

Food was very good. Got the oxtail potstickers (just okay), tempura shrimp (excellent), panda roll, and duck fried rice. Would order everything again except the potstickers. Only negative was that it was very loud!

This was my first time dining at Sunda, I picked it because I was in town meeting a friends and was craving Asian. This did not disappoint. We were eating prime time on a Monday, and it was quite busy but the service and quality of food was outstanding. Food came out staggered, not a true appetizer, entree, dessert service like a normal restaurant. The plates came out as they were ready to maintain the integrity and the freshness of the food. We loved everything we ate, the Lumpia and Pancit were delicious. If you get the chance eat at Sunda, you wont regret it.

The food was outstanding, with a beautiful presentation. The servers were very attentive. We had the Thai Lemon Grass Salad, Sweet Potato Caterpillar Roll, and the tofu pad thai. While the salad and sushi roll were great, the pad thai needed the tofu more cooked and lacked the powerful flavors that the other food had. All in all, I would definitely go back!

3rd time at this restaurant!i bragged about taking my date there because she was vegetarian
Server wasnt attentive! Seems like he hated serving us! Maybe because we was black or just something else! But I still tipped home over 20% to make him feel bad
Just not happy with the overall experience !
Customer service means a lot !!
