You won't have a bad meal here, but I just can't wrap my head around the price and value. It's extremely over priced - you pay double for similar food that you can get at an average Asian & sushi restaurant in Chicago. It's a cool place, the service is good, but the food is just average.

Thank you for the feedback! Yes, we had to make some changes in our pot stickers but we will get the oxtail back in no time! Due to capacity limit, these changes are temporary until we can adjust back to our full capacity. We thank you for understanding but please feel free to email me Christopher@SundaNewAsian dotcom so you can share more. We look forward to have you visiting us again.

We’ve been wanting to try out Sunda for a while and finally did so for my friend’s bday. It was great! Food was delicious, and the waiter was very nice and attentive. It was a bit disappointing that the menu had to be pared down due to Covid, but what we ordered was yummy: brussel sprout salad, schezuan chicken (fennel was a bit strong in it, so beware fennel haters), tempura shrimp, garlic crab noodles (soooo good), crispy rice with tuna, and pork adobo rice (a must have!). Would come here again if it survives this madness of a year.

Sunda
Responded on July 28, 2020

Thank you so much for the feedback Ace! We are currently working with capacity limit so menu items will be in rotation as we grow in getting more guests dining in the restaurant. So glad you are able to enjoy those dishes! The Szechuan Chicken has szechuan spice in it so probably that's what you're tasting since we do not use fennel in the dish but that's a great comparison of taste in those two ingredients! We look forward to your next visit!

Sunda was beyond accommodating. We had to change our reservation 3x this weekend due to a change in plans. They answered their phones promptly and were enthusiastic to help. Our waitress was just as wonderful as the food. We didn’t get a bad dish. Our favorites were the crispy rice with wagyu and the pear sake cocktail. This is a great place to go for a special occasion. The service was exceptional and the atmosphere and food were amazing. We’ll be back again :)

Haven’t been in a while. Found the food to be very mediocre. Several of the suggested rolls tasted exactly the same. Too many other great sushi restaurants open even during these unusual times.

My experience at Sunda was top notch. Immediately from the service taking note of one of our party’s gluten allergy to each and every dish being brought out and reinforced what is gluten free and what isn’t I was just blown away. Everything we got was amazing. By far you have to try the crispy rice. We got one order as an appetizer and another as our last part of the meal. I can’t wait to come back.

Yummy food! I really loved the Tail of Two Tunas Roll, very flavorful with a bit of spice. I also liked the Pork Belly Bao, I mean, who doesn't like pork belly (if you eat meat). My drink, the Grass Tiger, was a highlight. Lots of cocktails are too sweet for me, this was smooth and spicy! They have done a lot to be contactless and keep people safe during the pandemic.
