3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2015 NEW

Maybe I hit them on a bad day, but it seemed everyone was moody...which kind of destroyed my appetite. I ordered a seared wagyu tartare (which was too seared) and a tale of two tunas roll (not bad). Would return only if I knew the same servers weren't present. Too pretentious for the establishment.

Sunda is a special restaurant with its decor, extensive bar menu and unique Asian inspired food. It's an excellent spot for a special occasion. Although food presentation is excellent and the menu is innovative, they don't compromise on flavour. The main dish (sea bass served in a skillet on onions and asparagus) was one of the best dishes we have... More

My husband ordered the toasted coconut corn. OMG. The crispy brussel sprouts are amazing. We ordered plenty but those two dishes really stood out to me. It was a very enjoyable evening.

There were 13 in our party so we were able to order many dishes to try. I read that we had to order the well known brussel sprouts and we did. It was OK. Nothing to scream about but it is different in the way they make them. The brussel sprouts are not whole or halved but are shredded and... More

This was actually my second visit to Sunda. I cannot say enough good things about this place. Festive and beautiful atmosphere, great service, and mouth-watering food!

Very noise place, ordered some appetizers and entrees but the food came as the waitress decided. A soup that, although was requested as a starter, never arrived. The food was just ok, the table setting was poor. Not a good quality/price relationship.

Beautiful and trendy space. Not cheap for Asian fusion.( more than Tao and Buddakan in NYC ). Drinks were small. The shaved Brussels sprouts salad are to die for delicious! I would go back just for those. We found the waitress seemed to recommend the most expensive things in the menu several times over. I'm not sure that was necessary... More

4boyma, Thank you for your honest review of Sunda.

Also, our Chef chooses to use higher quality ingredients in his dishes so as a result, our... More

This place never disappoints! Food is amazing... It is so hard to decide what to order since it is all so good. My fav is the Spicy tuna sticky rice. We have had Bree as a server twice and she is exceptional.... So attentive and makes the entire experience flawless.

Definitely go for the Sumo Mary! The hand roll on the sumo mary is one of my favorite sushi rolls of all time. The bloody mary and all of its fixins were enough to share as an appetizer for two of us- so we ordered that and one entree and were satisfied. Great place with great food.

ktitone, We're so glad you love the Sumo Mary. It's definitely a favorite here. The roll we use is the Crab Hand Roll. That one is on our menu every day so you can order it even without the Sumo Mary! Hope to see you this weekend for brunch! Best, Mia Operations Manager More
