What Insiders Are Saying

The Infatuation
8.5

Does eating at Sunda feel like eating in the club? Yes, but you don't have to love the ChampagnePapi lifestyle to love this restaurant.

Ratings 8.0-8.5:The best way to think about restaurants in the low to mid 8′s is that these are the places you would absolutely go back to, anytime. These restaurants are ones that you want to bring a friend to, just so they can also experience the duck carnitas, or burger, or whatever dish the place is known for.

We went there for brunch and it was decent but it would be better for dinner. The duck buns were delicious. The atmosphere was nice and the service was good.

Sunday is expensive and loud, but the food is quite good. Not a place to go if you're craving authentic Asian cuisine, but if you're looking to share plates and try a little bit of something, it works. Be prepared for a hefty bill though. The brussel sprout salad was surprisingly good, and very large.

A little loud, but festive. Temperature was a little chilly. Food portions good, fresh, flavorful. Sushi roll was small but shared. Steamed buns delicious (though one of my pork pieces had alot of grizzel-yuck)
Pad Thai dish was good but a little dry but probably the best dish we tried. Duck fried rice was a pleasant surprise. Would have liked more soup choices- not a fan of Miso. Waiter was very helpful with recommendations.

We loved this place!!! It was our first time here and my fiancé and I absolutely loved everything we ordered!! I don’t remember exactly what they were all called but we got the dan dan noodles, shishito peppers, demon roll, lemongrass salad, salmon sashimi, oxtail dumplings, these hamachi rolls with truffles and potato chips, and the ridiculous for dessert. The Dan dan noodle were the bomb!!! My fiancé didn’t want me to order them because he didn’t want to eat any carbs but when the dish came he ate more than I did :/. I would definitely recommend this place!! Our waitress was amazing too! Coming back soon!

The male host was not friendly. I checked in initially with a female host who said we would be seated in a moment when my husband returned from valet. When my husband and I checked in with the male host he dismissively said that was not true and we would need to wait the 10 minutes until our exact reservation time. They were not packed, this was a Wednesday evening. The whole experience and attitude of the staff was underwhelming at best, including our server. I came for my birthday. The reservation noted it was my birthday, but the server was not aware. My husband went to the host stand at the conclusion of our meal to state he had expected the dessert to come with a candle at least. They minimally apologized to him and sent over a cupcake with a candle. I have been here before and liked it, but this was a disappointment.

The whole experience was amazing! Our server, Brittany, was super helpful since it was our first time. All the food is shareable, so we got to try quite a bit and it was all very good! We ordered the brussel sprout salad, beef lollipops, red dragon sushi roll, and duck fried rice. For the menu being a sharing menu and everything coming out when it was ready, the portions were surprisingly large. Everything was priced very well too. Definitely will go back!

Made a large group reservation for Saturday night and had a wonderful experience. The staff was accommodating to our timeline and dietary restrictions. Our waiter was amazing and he really helped everyone get a dish they’d love. I couldn’t have been happier with the experience.

Ps- get the Brussels sprout salad! You’re welcome.

We try to eat at Sunda every time we are in downtown Chicago. They have not disappointed. Had the shiitake edamame dumplings and Asian pear salad to start; excellent. For entrees we had crispy rice seafood dynamite and the drunken noodles; everything was tasty and very good. For dessert had the banana dumplings with avocado ice cream; unique and tasty. They are always busy so make reservations; and be prepared for a somewhat nosy environment (large open room with hard surfaces so little sound is absorbed). Service was attentive as usual. Would rate a 4.5 if possible.

Brought out of town friends. Walked in and the 4 of us were taken aback by the extreme noise level. It’s verging on unbearable.
Our waiter was odd, he kept telling us it was Friday, over and over. Every time he came to our table he interrupted our conversation. He talked the entire time he was at our table. I felt like he was really out of sorts. Ruined our experience.
Food was just okay. 2 of our orders weren’t right.
Seems like they’re getting sloppy and inattentive to the most basic and important parts of dining. This was our 4th and last visit to Sunda.

I will not be returning back. For one the restaurant is incredibly loud and the tables are so close together, very unpleasant. Also our waiter was attentive for the first 15 minutes and then never checked on us again. We wanted to order more food but we were completely ignored. The hostess staff were quite rude as well. Terrible experience
