Sunda Ratings and Reviews
Food was great just a tad too loud. Just make sure to review your bill when you provide cash as our waiter tried to short change us. We gave our waiter some in cash and some in card and he tried to pocket $30 in cash. I called him on it and right away he owned up to this "mistake." Hard to believe it was a mistake when he knew exactly the amount in question.
Other than that it was a good time
Our waitress was really good. Service was excellent. Food was very creative. Everything we ordered was almost excellent. The salad needed more herbs and nuts for flavor. The short rib dish had delicious meat but was drowning in sauce that was slightly too sweet. Same with the drunken noodle dish. Lighten up the sauces and I would highly recommend. Otherwise, order some sushi to balance things out.
I went with a group of women for a girls night out and had a great experience. Our waiter nick was excellent. We followed his recommendations for appetizers, rolls, and noodles and all were delicious. Highly recommend the Brussels sprout salad, walnut shrimp appetizer, panda roll, and drunken noodles. Will definitely go again
LOVE Sunda! We keep coming back and trying new things. Some of our favorites: miso cauliflower (I know it doesn't sound good but the flavor is amazing!), asparagus beef lollipops, sticky rice with spicy tuna, great white... So many great options to choose from. We especially like the atmosphere with great cocktails, energetic music and the trendy dressed crowd.
Outstanding food. Brussel sprouts 'salad' is excellent. The adobo pork belly is really outstanding. Drunken noodles was very flavorful. Both times (separated by 9 months) I've gotten tuna nigiri it has been the freshest tuna I've had anywhere. Our waitress was passionate about wine and recommended both an excellent South African rose and zin blend 'the pessimist' from Paso Robles that were far from the average by he glass.
Sunda is one of my favorite places! It has a great ambiance and the food is amazing! The service has always been wonderful as well. I don't even like Brussels Sprouts and their Brussels Spouts on the appetizer menu is now one of my favorite dishes of all time. 5 Stars!!!!!
Okay, this is pan South Asian which I can appreciate but basically it tastes pretty much like Thai food but way more expensive than a Thai restaurant. The ambiance is great, the wait staff is wonderful. The wine is pricey. It's showy and trendy and there's a place for that. For people who go out all the time, hey, it's another destination. For those of us who go out less and want a really great, distinctive food experience every time, this would not be all that high on my list.
We came into town and got in pretty immediately by using OpenTable.
My date had the Grass Tiger drink which was amazing- and I don't like jalapeños.
For dinner we had sushi (candy cane was great), my favorite- tiger shrimp tempura, pork belly, duck fried rice and were accidentally given the crazy rice. I can't handle spice but it was good I ate it anyway!
We went to Sunda for our post wedding dinner and it was really a treat! We were blown away by the brussel sprouts salad, oxtail potstickers, lamb chops and the fried tuna sushi. The green tea matcha dessert was a little challenging to eat but so worth the work. The staff was very accommodating and offered many freebies to help us celebrate.
The food and cocktails were amazing. Server was very attentive, until we ordered. Despite asking for a starter, our appetizer was not delivered first. We didn't realize that the Vegetable Curry was not served with rice, it took time both to get the server's attention to order it and then for the rice to be served (we also noticed the couple at the next table had the same order issue).
Food was amazing. Dishes were delicious with the exciting, creative seasonings. I could have eaten more of the Brussels Sprouts. So delicious. Sushi and appetizers were great.
The hostesses were very warm, friendly, engaging and welcoming.
The bartender made a good drink but lacked personality. She was too busy doing her prep work during service hours when this should have been done prior to opening. She could have been engaging. Next time will have cocktails elsewhere. I asked what her favorite dishes were and she suggested a few.
We asked our server Nolan what his favorite dishes were and he suggested the same dishes the bartender mentioned. Sounded rehearsed. We saw little of him throughout the night.
Our busboy was phenomenal! He was spot on our table. Since our server was busy with a larger group our busboy was extremely attentive, from making suggestions, to dropping off our dishes, to cleaning up, to keeping our drinks flowing. I asked him what his favorite dishes were and he suggested something different, which we tried and loved. We enjoyed him very much. Great busboy service!
Overall I would go back for the food. Skip the bar and go elsewhere for cocktails.
Very slow service. Not attentive. Never get asked how the food is by the waiters and they aren't very personable for the most part. This has been the norm lately, as I go here at least once a week. Food is great but the chicken in any of the bento boxes is very fatty. Otherwise the food is excellent and manager on duty always stops by each table to see how things are.
