We LOVED this place. It's truly a hidden jewel in BA. We were a large, mixed group - some vegetarians, some who don't eat beef and some omnivores. Sunae did a fantastic job catering to everyone's needs. Every single dish we tried was delicious -...More

If you are not from Asia or you never been to those of countries, maybe you would be content to have the food they have. Let's say something new! But surprisingly it was overpriced and the food was not that good enough. I was eager...More

The interior is fun, but there is little authenticity in the food at Sunae Cantina. The flavors simply don't pop at all, and the Beef Rendang was, quite frankly, abysmal. Dry and flavourless... the complete opposite of what a Rendang should be. The service was...More
