It is probably not as popular as it once was. Loud music and a long cocktail list. However, the food was bad to say the list. Service wasn't extraordinary either. I guess if your looking for a trendy places there are better options.

Wife and I sat at bar and people watched for a while. As the evening goes on the crowd evolves from more professional types to more fraternity/ sorority types. I guess I would call myself more mature than most folks there after 10pm but not uncomfortable for me. Drinks were top notch - but a tip to the bartender helped... More

Make sure you do a reservation upfront, as it is really hard to get tables. Food is tasty. The Noodle and the Chicken Curry tasted really exotic. Not that it was bad. Just tasted different then we're expecting. Good surprise. Try the Dragon Shrimp Tempura. Really good!

This Place was really Great! We orderd edamame, Sushi and Dim Sum as apertisers... Just Perfect. Especially the Sushi -something with "Ten" was it I guess - delicious!! For the Main WE had the duck and Pad Thai - mmmmhhh. Very good. The People Are Great and Lot of good Looking girls but little to noisy.

I heard a lot about Sunda and planned on going there soon, but my friend decided to celebrate her birthday there, so it was my first try. The service and the place were great.

I made reservations for nine ladies WELL in advance (January) and the service we received on Saturday regarding our reservation was ridiculous. At 9:00, the rest of the party was running a little late and we were informed that we would be seated as soon as half of the party arrived. At 9:05, six people had arrived and we approached... More

Sunda is located in a central downtown Chicago area and occupies a large space. I went to this restaurant several years ago and was not very impressed. I thought I will give another try. The place was very crowded. The clientele was mostly very young. The place is very loud, not a place for a conversation. It has a festive... More
