The food and service was amazing at Sunda. The noise level is a bit loud to carry a normal conversation. I had trouble hearing people and had to often have them repeat it. If you need to have a more personal conversation, I would opt for another place. However, the vibe is very energetic and would dine again here.

Our server was so well educated and did not rush us at all. She was very kind and her suggestions for wine were very helpful. The Filet Mignon wasn't what we expected so we will not be ordering that again- it just wasn't that special. The Crispy Brussel Sprout Salad is always spectacular as well as the sushi. All in all, Sunda is a wonderful restaurant and we will always go back for the delicious food.

Very very poor service! Rude hostess staff snickering as they looked at us at the bar as we patiently waited to be seated at 4.....when it was well past 4 pm!

Our server went missing for long periods of time and as a result it took us a very long time to order our entrees, close the check, etc. our brunch took almost a full two hours, and we all had commitments which we needed to leave for afterward. I’ve been to Sunda over a dozen times and it’s always great for groups, but it may be a while before I return.

The variety of food and delicious flavors of each dish make this a great go to restaurant. Keep up the good work. There is something for everyone! Remember they serve tapas style, so dishes are single entree items to eat or share.

I love Sunda. I first came during a conference probably 4-5 years ago. Now it is an annual tradition with my whole team. The waiter guides us and brings enough of the top foods for everyone to have a bit. It just keeps coming out and is ALL AWESOME!!!!

Great food to share with friends, great service too!
Only problem is that the tables are too close to each other and it was hard to get to the table and get out.

Our waiter was AMAZING and made the experience really special. Food is always amazing with the exception of some wagyu that was undercooked...but it was handled immediately and taken off the bill. Only worth mentioning because of how easy the service recovery was. Definitely my wife and I's go-to for vegan Asian food. And the vegan mochi, too....soooooo good!

Food is always amazing. Brussel sprout salad to die for - even if you hate brussel sprouts! It is always noisy at Sunda so go with a group and know you won't hear everyone, but skip it for a romantic dinner unless you want to yell at your date. Go family style and try a bit of everything. One of the best in all of Chicago.

Reservation at 730 - seated after 8. Asked for manager who was edgy and fairly rude. Check in people also unhelpful. This is my 3rd time here in past month in addition to my company people coming here. I will likely select another place next time.

Went for my boyfriend’s birthday, we had never been. The website made it look very chic and intimate but when we got there, it was the opposite. It’s clear the owner only cares about money and not the over all experience considering the tables were crammed so close together you could barely pull your chair out. It was so incredibly loud, we literally had to scream to communicate even though we were right next to each other; we left with a huge headache. The food was weird and didn’t make sense with its choice of combinations, it was not good. Definitely would not recommend.

I brought my work team to Sunda for an offsite event. We got a table that was not located in a good spot. Waiters kept running behind us and even bumped into our chairs they passed by. It was too dark in the corner we were at and the kitchen entrance was right behind our table so it was very noisy and not pleasant. That took away from the experience. The food was excellent, however when it was brought out to us the waiter didn’t know where to place the items and didn’t ask either, we arranged the dishes ourselves as some of us were sharing others were not. Overall we would have expected a better dining experience for the price we paid for our meal.

Enjoyed a nice leisurely lunch to celebrate a family birthday. The food was absolutely delicious. The service was excellent and the ambiance was comfortable high-end. It was pricey but worth it for this special occasion.

I think if the restaurant focus a little more on customer service, this would raise the standard so much more. I have no complaints about the food, just that the service was lacking. It wasn't bad, but when compared to other restaurants at its level, it just seems that host/waiters could be more friendly and not appear as rushed. The floor staff set the mood and environment for the customer to have an experience. Unfortunately, I just didn't feel that at Sunda. I would return though simply for the food.

I have not been to Sunda for a while but the food and the service went down hill. Things that were to be served warm were served cold and the flavors of the dishes were not as amazing in times past. I was disappointed for sure!

I am thrilled to have chosen Sunda as the venue for my birthday dinner! Our server, Brittany, was a delight. The food was phenomenal, and we even got a delicious complimentary dessert and $10 certificate for a future visit as a "thanks" for celebrating there. We will absolutely return to use it soon.
