Sunda Ratings and Reviews
Such an amazing dining experience. We were in town for one weekend (none of us had ever been), and we were receiving so many dining recommendations from friends. It became overwhelming. We are SO glad we went with Sunda!!! Everything was perfect from the service, to the food. Johnny was an excellent server, very attentive and professional!!! Everything we ordered was perfect. Absolutely delicious.
This is a must visit when in the city. Love, love, love their food! Had Sunday brunch with lumpia, pork belly bao buns, Crispy Pig Hidden Lobster maki and the biggest halo-halo I've seen. Service was excellent - Joey did a great job explaining the menu and food items. He was super attentive. Truly a great place to go for any meal.
I have loved this place for years and always recommend it to anyone coming to Chicago to visit. Especially the brunch, which is great. My favorites are the crispy Brussels sprout salad. The seared wagyu on crispy rice. And, most recently, the tempura French toast (although they were a bit stingy with the whipped cream...).
A couple quick tips: walk or use public transit if you can. Getting around in this neighborhood during busy times is stressful and parking can be hit or miss. Also... This last time (yesterday) I ended up having to valet...which ended up being a bad experience and also stressful. It seemed the valet guy was sleeping on the job. And...he had left my car not only unattended but also unlocked... The restaurant (generously) picked up the parking tab.
The food is reasonable at this pricepoint. The server was friendly but low energy. The place itself is the problem. They pack people in, which is fine, but they have no sound-deadening decor or construction. This place is one of the loudest "nice" restaurants in the city. It's fine for most of us, but can be a problem for those with any hearing issues (like my older family members). Also - a place that has a sushi bar should be able to have some recommendations on which selections are good that day, or off the menu specialties. "There all good" is not acceptable. Do not go for nigiri sushi or sashimi. Go if you like rolls etc.
Birthday dinner review: 1. Nothing was done for the birthday! I even mentioned it a second time to the hostess as we were sitting down! Pretty disappointing. 2. Service: Our waiter was very knowledgeable of the menu, and a good waiter, but the slow service (drinks and food) definitely hindered our experience. Food coming out before drinks, having to cancel a roll, because it took over 30 minutes, etc! 3. Noise level: Far louder than any Rush rocket concert I’ve ever been to!
If I could give 0 star for their food, I would. Horrible, horrible food. the nigari were not fresh, and disgusting! We ordered the restaurant week menu and a miso soup ramen. the beef was jasmine rice from the restaurant week menu basically taste like any kind of instant rice you can get from any Asian supermarket, probaly worse than that! The ramen was overcook, I personally would not call it ramen!
I selected Sunda for my birthday celebration and it was terrible. Our service was non-existent. We could barely get water. The server came by once to take the order then said he would come back because we asked him to describe the sushi roll. I will not return. #birthdayfail
Our dinmer party had an Absolutely Amazing experience!!! Thumbs up for the food, drinks, waiters, and waitresses!!! We requested to speak to the Chef to praise him on how great the food was and he came out!!!! I totally recommend this restaurant and will revisit in the near future.
Went for lunch during restaurant week. I enjoyed the first 3 courses very much. The nigiri was delicious! would have like to have more sushi/nigiri as the 4th course, which was a short rib over rice and green beans was something to be desired for. The rice, veggies and peanut sauce were great, however the rib was all fat. It was hard to find any meat that wasn't covered in fat. That was a bit disappointing. Overall the food was delicious. The desserts looked great, but were way overpriced!
Decided to give this place another shot after a poor experience a few years ago. Food was great, however the server or kitchen didn't time the dishes so my wife's food would come out at the same time as mine. Waited over 15 min and couldn't get any updates until I had to flag her down myself and/or ask another server to help. When the food finally came out, it had dried out so we had to send it back for another. By the time it was all sorted out, my food ended up cold from waiting on her entree. No apologies from the server. For the prices they charge I would expect more from the service. One of the most disappointing dining experiences we've had in Chicago so far. It's a shame too because we actually enjoyed the food.
We have never been disappointed dining at Sunda. It happens to be one of our absolute favorite restaurants to dine at. We actually drove 2.5 hours to the city just for lunch. The Brussels sprouts salad is our favorite starter, then some chili albacore & finish off with a tale of two tunas.
