Sizzling Atmosphere, Asian Fusion Delight

We got a 6:30 pm reservation for 3 on a Friday night with no wait. The place was already packed! It is dimly lit with high energy noise frequented by a 30/40 something crowd. We went with our waiter's suggestions for a first timer and he nailed it. The menu is overwhelming! The food is a combo of... read more

Place filled up quickly, great sushi! The guys behind the sushi bar whipped up their favorites for the gang, and it was spot on. Place is very large, so getting a group not too hard. Large, long communal seating as well. Menu / Sake extensive, so no problems choosing something there. Didn't have anything but sushi, so can't speak to... More

Fun place to share lots of different types of sushi, etc. Very noisy at lunchtime. Went there a different time for a private party and the room was nice/private and the food was awesome.

This was such a good meal. It's difficult comparing restaurants - some amazing technical ability, some ideas and combinations. This was the latter. Large portions so 4 things for 2 will be fine. Oxtail dumplings excellent. Amazing tempura shrimp which we could've ate 2 bowls of. Red dragon special sushi great. Slightly disappointing crispy rice - which they push which... More

Going to Southeast Asia for the first time and tasting that spectrum of flavors - that just opened up a whole new world for me, the kind of foods I now crave. That was a fulfillment of my childhood fantasies of the way traveling should be, filled with foods that appeal to the senses. Sunda has brought that home for... More

I was torn about writing this review because I love Sunda so much and I'm afraid that telling the world how much I love it will result in other people falling in love too and never ever being able to get a table... but alas, I don't want to be selfish. My ultimate favorite item, that one that we order... More

Really nice restaurant. I like the communal tables but those are not the only choice. We had an excellent brussel sprout salad and HONEY-GINGER BRAISED BEEF LONG RIB along with another dish. Everything was perfect. What a great night with great food. You won't be disappointed. Perfect for our first trip to Chicago together.
