Sarah, the manager, and Kevin, our server, were PHENOMENAL! They guided our party through the menu, made great recommendations to help get a variety and flavor of the full menu. Such a unique, cosmopolitan, and delicious place. Best dim sum in Nashville.

It was our first visit and we are very adventurous eaters so we ate more than most guests but everything we ordered was outstanding! Unfortunately I don't recall our servers name but she provided stellar service guiding us through the cold Sake menu as well as helping us enjoy lots of dishes that we shared tapas style. We will be back!!

Everything about this place was outstanding. The service and the food were both terrific. My brother, sister in law and I all ordered sushi - which my boyfriend does not enjoy. He ordered the tempura French toast and when it arrived we all had food envy. He said it was the best French toast he’s ever had - and he’s picky!
It was early for brunch so not loud at all and the space is very pretty. All of the employees were friendly and server was very knowledgeable about the menu.
I highly recommend!

We sat at the bar for happy hour specials and food from the dinner menu. Awesome vegetarian options and great service from the bartender. I wish he would have mentioned the level of heat in the Brussels sprouts salad he recommended ... I practically choked on it... my husband enjoyed it though.

Service at the host stand was excellent. We went to try vegan options but unfortunately they carried over the valentines menu from the day before and a couple of the items on the regular menu weren't prepped. :( I wish they had more for us to try - we only got two items (the two that were vegan) and we went off to another restaurant to fill up.

Dating your spouse - 10/10
Doing it at Sunda on Valentine’s Day - never again.
In a city FULL of dining option, being anything less than “good” as a server really isn’t acceptable. I wouldn’t even classify my server as subpar. He was off putting and unapologetic. Zero bedside manners. I ordered a cocktail and the first thing I saw was a bug in it. I said something before he even put it down. He said, “Oh. Let’s get you another one. Sometimes we get fruit flies.” Literally that was it.
When explaining the menu it was as blankly as, “We have a prix fixe five course option or other options on the back.” My biggest pet peeve for a server is to be flat all dinner long then perk up as they’re handing you the bill. This dinner was a prime example of that.
The sushi was fantastic. The salad also good. The eggplant appetizer was soggy - not sure if that was intended, but I don’t think so. I ordered the filet mignon medium. It came out well done and tasted like pot roast. The dessert was okay, but the cheesecake was completely liquified after deep frying it.
I typically would never rate a restaurant based off a holiday service. However, I was the first person through the door so you know none of the staff were overwhelmed at that point and there really was no reason for my steak to be over cooked because the kitchen wasn’t backed up.
I eat out at high end restaurants a LOT and particularly enjoy Asian restaurants. This one was incredibly disappointing, though. If I go back, I’d probably stick to sushi.

I’ve been twice and it’s always packed but I don’t know why. Neither time I enjoyed the food. We’ve tried a lot of items and nothing impressed me. Our server was very nice, but service was very slow so much so that they felt the need to comp us our bottle of wine. Ambiance is busy and we sat near a hall with a draft so I kept my coat on all night. Needless to say we will not go back.

Overall the food was amazing and we really enjoyed our dinner. The food was unique and different and very good. It was a PRICEY dinner for two, so probably would not be a regular place to dine. The drinks were good but will have drinks before we dinner the next time, since most were around $15 a drink and that was about 1/2 of our total bill. It's kind of loud, so hard to talk with the person across the table from you at times.

In the end it was for a birthday dinner, so great food and it was a nice time.

This was the first time in 14 years my husband and I visited Nashville. We wanted to celebrate his birthday without kids, so we specifically picked an upscale place in the heart of Nashville. I can say that this is the WORST experience I had at a restaurant, EVER! We had a reservation at 5:30pm which was still early so the restaurant was practically empty. The hostess' did not acknowledge us at all when we came in as they were gossiping behind the stand. Finally, I said reservation for two, which one decided to seat us. This is a very large space and we were sat directly beside another couple despite the fact that there were 20+ tables available in which we could have more privacy. I mentioned this to the hostess and she giggled and said nothing. Despite this, I wanted this to be a great night for my husband and did not draw attention to this. Our waiter came to the table and seemed very friendly, however, when he started his blurb of all the information, he rushed through it quite quickly, and was not looking at us as he went through his rehearsed line. We had to have him repeat himself several times. Finally, we decided on to order a starter of pork buns and get a couple cocktails. The waiter than disappeared. The cocktails arrived, pork buns were eaten. No waiter. The couple next to us could hear everything we were talking about, vice versa. It was so uncomfortable of a space. Then the hostess sat another couple directly beside us. I had two strangers sitting within two feet of myself on each side. Still no waiter. Finally, I told my husband, I was over it. He was uncomfortable, I was uncomfortable. We found our waiter and asked for the check. The tab was $54 dollars for two cocktails and an order of Pork Buns. I was so frustrated with the overpriced menu, the ambiance, and the seat situation and the poor service. We paid, walked down to the Pub where we ate and drank a full course for two for less than we paid at Sunda… Ridiculousness! I do NOT recommend.
