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.

Food was delicious. Recommend the Spicy Tuna sticky rice, oxtail pot stickers, edimame dumplings and the lobster bacon roll. Service was pretty good. Server had great recommendations. Got a lot of food and 2 cocktails and 2 beers for 3 people for $155 + tip. I’ll definitely go back!

Hadn't eaten here in a few years. Very disappointing on every level:
1. WAY WAY too loud
2. Poor wait and delivery behavior
3. Drink orders late or not at all, other staff just not interested, wait for the server" they kept saying.
4. No food item was particularly special. For five persons a $300.00 plus tab should ALL BE SPECIAL!

Do not order the red snapper..it was super smelly and very sweet..we told our server the same and he also agreed.however we still had to pay for the same without eating a single bite. Rest of the food was good

Definitely a fun place to go. Very busy and very loud! We selected the brusselsprout salad (very good), the edamame dumplings (delicious), and sushi (excellent). The pad thai was not very good, rather flavorless. We were going to get coffee after dinner but our waitress brought us our check-- apparently it was time to go! She was friendly but they definitely like to turn tables quickly there. All in all, I think this was a great place to go and glad we went but I'm not sure I would visit it again while in Chicago.

I would only recommend that if ordering The Gambler, be certain to have milk or ice-cream immediately available for the unlucky “victim”

Great place to show out of town guests the best Asian food Chicago has to offer. Definitely get the Peking duck bao, crispy Brussels sprouts, and pork belly skewers. The crab noodles was also a decadent treat. The rolls were a bit on the heavy side flavor wise. Excellent service as always.

Always great experience at Sunda. I made a reservation for Tuesday night. I actually made the wrong reservation and it was quickly fixed over the phone.

I wrote a memo on opentable that I will be instructing the valet to get the flowers out of my trunk so my girlfriend does not see it and give it to the host for further instructions.

When I arrived, the valet already knew it was me. All the staff knew about the instructions all the way to the server.

Our server Jerry is great, he knew the menu very well and explained that most of the food are shareable items . I told him that my girlfriend is vegetarian and he quickly grab vegetarian menu. We ended up settling for Pad-Thai with tofu, it was enough for both of us. Got a dessert that looks like a ball, I forgot what it’s called then Jerry brought the flowers that I bought for my girlfriend!

Overall, everything went smoothly and the next day my gf and I told each other that we had an amazing date. Everything went smoothly at Sunda, we had great experience, this is why I love coming back here because of the amazing customer service from every staff that I interacted with.

Thank you,
Chino

We will be back again!

Food was excellent! It was very quiet as we were part of the early brunch crowd. Wanted to try so many things will definitely be back! Sushi, sisig and silog bowls were awesome! Want to go back for the tempura French toast.

I think this restaurant is very nice. It’s just very loud inside near the back corner. the food is amazing, absolutely delicious. however I don’t think it’s worth the price is that they’re charging. I still love this restaurant but I wouldn’t eat There often

The restaurant was beautiful and the food was fantastic. My only complaint was the waiter. We waited a god 15 minutes for drink orders and he barely said two words to us during our dining experience. It was a real disappointment

The restaurant's ambience is very impressive. Unfortunately the food sucks! First, the adobo rice doesn't even come close to your traditional adobo flavor. The silog is overpriced ($20), we got an undercooked slightly pink tocino, two to three "thin"slices of longanisa, and way too sweet atchara. For dessert, we ordered tge ube bites. What did we get? Three cupcake sized bread pudding with a "hint" of wet ube filling!!! Everything on the menu is way overpriced. I will not recommend this restaurant if you are looking to experience Philippine cuisine.

So disappointed that I was told all of the things I couldn’t order because “everything is fried in fish grease”. I’ve been to Sunda a few times and maybe this is new or maybe I didn’t order fried entree before. But as a person (like quite a few others) with a fish allergy, how could you not accommodate diners by NOT frying all foods with fish?? Allergies are pretty common and this became a disappointing dining experience.
