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.

The restaurant was empty. The hostess took forever to seat us and a we never saw or spoke to a waiter. In fact, nobody said a word to us in the restaurant so we left and went to Tao. Worst restaurant t experience ever.

Sunda was exceptional. It was one of the best meals I’ve had in Chicago. The sunrise roll on the sushi menu was the best sushi roll I have had in the US. The place is really loud, which was great for our group of 8 that had two young children we didn’t feel like we had to keep hushing at a quiet stuffy steakhouse. The food and the ambiance are worth the poor acoustics. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who likes Asian food! The pho was great. They have tons of gluten free options. And the lychee martini was also exceptional. I will definitely be back to Sunda, probably every time I ever come back to Chicago. I rarely find the desire to review restaurants, but the food here was so good I had to thank them for raising the bar for Chicago sushi and Asian street fare!

Love the imaginative drinks and amazing flavors in the food.The host stand needs much work...more concerns on reservation over a greeting..and then no immediate seating-even though restaurant was only 25% filled.Too aloof for my taste.

We have been to Sunda many times but Saturday was the worst experience ever. We went there for my husbands birthday we ordered appetizers, salad and sushi our food was literally all brought out in 10 minutes. It felt like an upscale buffet. It seems like the food is premade and brought out when ordered. Very sad for how much it costs to go there. For dessert we got free cake and waiter brought it and said oh I forgot a candle. Poor service will not be returning

Sunda is one of my favorite places in Chicago to bring out of town guests. Last weekend we had another wonderful meal at Sunda. All the sushi is incredibly fresh. Oxtail pot stickers and Wagyu crispy rice are a must!!

Great restaurant! Asian fusion dishes served “tapas style” (I.e. aa the food is prepared). But don’t be mistaken- the plates are quite large ... and delicious!! My favorites were the Brussels sprouts salad and the chile albacore sashimi. Prices were also very reasonable, particularly given the larger portions.

I haven't been to Sunda in years. It was always our favorite sushi restaurant when we lived in the city. We had a friend in town and we decided to take him there for dinner. The meal and the service were unbelievable. The food was a good as it was the first time we went. Melt in your mouth sushi and the tempura shrimp and brussel sprout appetizers are the best I've ever had. Our server was awesome and everything came out quickly. We will most definitely be making an effort to get back there soon.
