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 service was excellent. Our server came by at the right times and was very friendly. The beef lollipops were excellent. The sushi was lacking in flavor. The place where we were seated was so tight for my fiancé due to him being tall, and I could hear the conversations of the people next to us.

The food is always amazing. The service is good. It is quite pricey, but we knew that going into it, and it’s really loud. Don’t go with a group expecting to have a conversation. They are very accommodating with allergies and special diets.

The food was really good. Kinda pricy but the ambiance was cool for a dinner with my work team. The edamame dumplings were a good appetizer and the tail of two tunas maki roll was delicious! White tune nigiri was also on point

Hadn’t been to Sunda in a long time and can say I’ll be back sooner than later! It was an excellent experience from start to finish. Great service! Great food! My brother and I split four dishes. Including the Brussel Sprout Salad, Crispy Chicken, Beef Lollipops, and the special Salmon Maki. Everything was perfect!

Brothers Birthday, food was amazing, server was very sweet, polite and respectful. Only complaint was that it was very cramped. Tables were so close together I couldn’t even squeeze out to go use the washroom without saying excuse me between every table. Noise level was loud but it died down later into the evening. I would definitely recommend this place and would come back again.

It was okay, brussel sprout salad was not crispy like I remember and the pad Thai had no flavor. I have wanted to take my husband there for years and it was beyond disappointing. Also, the place was empty and I was stuck behind a pole and looking at the wait table listening to the wait staff conversation all night.

Excellent service. Waitstaff very attentive. Glasses were never empty.

All the dishes were full of flavor. Food arrived at table relatively quick. You can ask them to bring out food as they get made or all at one time. Favorites were the pork adobo fried rice, tempura French toast, and pork belly skewers.

Valet parking $15. Street parking available for $4/hour with 2 hours max.

Somewhat pricey but probably within range of downtown Chicago restaurants.

Will definitely come back.

I hadn't been here in years and was excited to return. It's very loud and jam-packed. The menu is (no joke) an overwhelming 8 - 10 pages long. For some reason they recommend doing family style, probably to get you to order more overpriced dishes. They do have a vegan menu! Points for that. However, I ordered a vegan curry that was delicious but soupy and was not plated with rice? I had to ask for rice and wait 10 minutes while it cooled in front of me. Overall, a weird, complicated eating experience that was SUPER expensive. Take your money somewhere else.
