This is only 4 stars because I almost never do 5, maybe if we hadn't filled up and skipped dessert... But Sunda is well worth the trip. My wife and son and I stopped in after Lookingglass theatre (which I also Highly Recommend), on a whim, with no info, and were glad we did. The atmosphere is subdued but pleasant, busy but not hectic. Noise level is conversation friendly. We ordered a number of dishes to share; they came one at a time so we had time to enjoy each one and talk, with no pressure but I'm sure they would have brought them out together if we asked. All the food was terrific, starting with the brussell sprouts salad, almost a slaw, with so many layers of flavor. As some other reviewer wrote, portions are substantial, I would say each one is easily shareable for 3 people with each person getting enough to eat, not just taste. We also had the Korean fried chicken appetizer served in pork buns, the butter garlic crab noodles (VERY buttery!), fried vegetables and a porkbelly dish that was so rich and tender it was melt in your mouth. Not a missed step on any plate. We would go back and try more dishes with friends. Definitely a place for plate sharing. A great find!
The food was no so great. The oxtail potstickers were dry, and greasy. We also ordered the steamed duck buns they were also dry, and flavorless.The only thing that was ok was the Hamachi Tataki. After you receive the food, the service will turn super slow motion where the server only shows up when the food almost completely digests in your stomach. We will not come back here again.
Nice find in downtown Chicago! We definitely went overboard in ordering but the waitress told us the dishes were smaller and meant for sharing...haha. We were shocked when the steamed buns came out. That was supposed to be an appetizer. Such big portions. The steamed buns were good but there was way too much hoisin sauce in it. If they had reigned it in on the sauce, it would of been perfect. Instead, I found it too sweet. The pork belly was great though. The drunken noodles were also good but I must admit too salty. I found myself drinking my water a lot. I did love the baby corn in it though. We got the chorizo crusted fish which sounded so intriguing. I didn't think it tasted like chorizo but it was very tasty. It was the best dish we had. Beautifully cooked fish with a side sauce of what was basically Panang curry. Wow that curry sauce was so good though. The level of spice was just right. By the time we finished all of those dishes we were really full but the waitress mentioned ube on the dessert menu so we buckled. I can't remember what they called this on the menu but it was basically a giant sized halo halo. There were 3 ice cream flavors: ube, avocado and corn with cheese. I loved the ube and corn/cheese one most. The bottom of the dessert was way too sweet though. I did not like it. It was kind of sad because apparently there was flan in it but it melted into that sweet mess at the bottom. The staff was fine and the waitress was attentive. They cleared dishes from our table quickly.
