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.

Get the Chilean sea bass! It's the best thing on the menu and melts in your mouth.

Sunda never disappoints! I took my daughter and her boyfriend there for her 21st birthday, and our server went above and beyond making sure we had an amazing and memorable meal. LOVE the food here and the service is always outstanding . . . as is the energetic ambience. It'll always be one of my favorite Chicago restaurants.

We usually don't eat at buffets, but were very happy with our experience at Sunda. The food was delicious and fresh which can be difficult to accomplish with a buffet. I would like to have seen a little more sushi offerings and less American standard fare since you can get the latter almost anywhere else. I appreciate the Filipino dishes and was pleasantly surprised at the number of those dishes available. The service was accommodating and friendly without being intrusive. The environment was well decorated with a spacious atmosphere. The seating was comfortable and well placed with enough room for guests at the table and far enough from adjacent tables. The price point was a bit more than what I would usually spend for a buffet, but taking the entire experience into account still a pretty good value.

It was okay, portions seemed significantly smaller this time around than the last time I was there. Ordered the tiger shrimp tempura and the bowl was so empty you could see the bottom of it when it came.

Sunda was amazing! I reserved a table for 5 through OpenTable and we arrived and had to wait about 5 minutes to be seated. Our waiter was EXCELLENT (I believe his name was Dan), he knew everything about the menu and had great recommendations. The Brussel sprout salad was superb and the sushi was outstanding. Booked another table at Sunda for a graduation dinner as we were eating this time! Can’t wait to come back.

After many standout experiences, this night out for my husband’s birthday was a miss. The service was sub-par, and our waitress was extremely inattentive. We felt the desserts left something to be desired as well. Overall, I must confess I am disappointed in the overall experience.

We found Sunda to be basically Asian-Japanese fare jacked up with additional meat and grease. The experiments were not always successful but what the heck, it probably makes sushi more accessible for some people. The Ghost in the Shell was a good drink. Environment too loud and too dark for us.

The sprout salad was simply spectacular. The Gambler sushi was delicious yet comes with a warning, not for the feint hearted. You have to try it. Ghost in the shell cocktail was smoother than Barry White.

Asian fusion at its best! Service was kind and attentive. Ambiance was classy and comfortable. We did eat at 6pm, so atmosphere wasn't too loud. Delicious food, I was very surprised the well done steak we had was very moist! I will definitely go back.

Honestly - it was a disappointment from the start. They did not have the sparkling Rose that was on the menu and the only replacement options they had were quite a bit more. Fine, not a big deal, got over that. Just the overall service was not what I was expecting when I brought 4 guest and was raving about how excellent it was going to be. Disappointment, and wont be returning anytime soon.

Overpriced. The seafood was not fresh, I ate because I had to eat something. It might be good for people that like heavy food, I'm more into health stuff that, as I mentioned, was not fresh.
