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!!!!

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.

Brunch is the best thing Sunda does. It’s reasonably priced and if you don’t get the tempura French toast you’re a mad man!

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.

We loved the food and ambiance. We were dining with our Six year old when we asked our server what was popular among young diners her comment was “ I don’t know what he eats. “ . The server really seemed to have issues with children.

The menu is extensive and there are many options. Appetizers and entrees are largely portioned and fantastic. The sushi rolls are just okay, and priced a bit high for the quality and quantity. Still great though!

Sunda is one of my favorite restaurants. However I was not impressed this time by the wait at the hostess stand when there were few patrons nor by the first table that we were taken to and refused to sit at as my husband is 6’5”and he would have been constantly bumped by waiters.
