Fantastic Asian Fusion

Everything about this visit just clicked. The food was amazing, the cocktails were good, the service was great, the vibe was energetic, and the room had great atmosphere. I look forward to visiting again the next time I am in Chicago.

We were there with friends for dinner (wednesday). This place is super loud when its busy. Food was mediocre at best. I had high hopes for dessert but sadly it was no better than what I get a some Thai hole in the wall place (just better presentation). Service was OK not great, we had to wait for plates after...

Great fusion Asian-American food. Enjoyed every dish. You haven't lived until you've had the Crispy Brussels Sprout salad. Extremely busy, so make reservations. Only wish they had paid attention to acoustics, as you almost have to shout to be heard. So if you don't like to have to talk loud with your friends, look for a quieter restaurant instead.

I had never been to Sunda prior to this meal, but I had heard mostly good things. I was very pleasantly surprised by the menu, the quality of the food, and - most impressive - the exceptional service. They team serve at Sunda (like most very good restaurants, in my experience) but our lead server, Evan, was perfect. He was... More

We had a group of 7 for dinner and seemed to be one of the smaller groups in the place. We didn't have a round table (big problem) and we were against the wall, which was beautiful and lit reasonably, but seemed to reverberate the ambient noise of the restaurant. It was loud. I gave up early on trying to... More

Thank you for taking the time to review Sunda!! I hope you come back and join us again in the near future. Some of our more quieter areas in the restaurant are the Veranda room (for large groups), the patio or the lounge. These would be better options in terms of having more conversations throughout your dining experience. Please let... More

Really not very good. A layer of rice in a cast iron pan, not cooked in it, topped with spinach, carrots and a few sprouts, too much hot sauce already applied, and rather boring slices of steak. I would say the meat was barely marinated, if at all. A small pile of thinly sliced cucumber, also barely pickled. $16 was... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your Bim Bim Bop. It is one of our most popular dishes at lunch. Did you happen to mention it to your server or a manager? Would have loved to make it right at the time. Please send me your email address and I would love to send you a gift card for lunch.... More

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.

Outstanding experience with a work friend. Delighted to find they have a vegan menu too. Everything we ordered, from the sweet potato caterpillar (yes looks like one too!), Crispy brussel sprout salad, hmm crispy and warmish, lovely, tofu with sugar snap peas, crunchy and delicious.

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
