Sunda is a confluence of vibrant South East Asian flavours and native Australian produce orchestrated by Executive Chef, Khanh Nguyen.

Influenced by the bold flavours of South East Asia, Sunda’s menu will see the more daring and unexpected elements of Indonesian, Malaysian and Vietnamese cuisine brought together, using lesser known ingredients and techniques.
Sunda offers two set menus – Sunda Classics menu at $98pp and The Full Sunda Experience at $168pp, a showcase of creativity and invention from Executive Chef Khanh Nguyen. Optional beverage matching is available.

So good. Friendly helpful wait staff. They asked if there was anything we didn't eat and happily made substitutions. Favourite dishes were the three mains: egg noodles with crispy chicken skin, pork chop with tamarind and rhubarb and the broccoli with coconut yoghurt, lime and buckwheat. Very delicious. (and they allowed us to take home the left overs!) Bring some layers to put on though as was very cold with the air con on. A fantastic way to spend three hours. The Windsor add on was a great bonus too.

Food is absolutely delicious! Would recommend the seafood platter as an addition to your menu. The spanner crab was amazing!

Loved it. Best overall service experience I think we've had anywhere (in a 20+ year "journey" through some truly great restaurants). Food was really great (I need a jar of that vegemite curry!), service was remarkable. Thanks Sunda.

All good. Perhaps a case could be made that it's a little pricey and it's a set menu, so there's no choice. However lovely meal, exceptional service, very enjoyable experience.

Unfortunately sunda fell well below expectations. When you pay$168 pp for a meal, expectations are very high. I wanted to love Sunda, but found the food disappointing. 2 of the courses were good - the prawn tofu broth and the mushroom pavlova. All the food was beautifully presented, but flavours were lacking in the other dishes or confused. Additionally, we were disappointed with the wine recommendation from the sommelier. Service was good. The second most expensive meal I've eaten in Melbourne but a long way from being a memorable one.

We had just wonderful and unforgettable food experience at Sunda. Chef with a huge talent creates unique dishes with attention to the smallest detail. The combination of flavors is amazing and takes you on an oriental international journey of flavors, and the service cares about
customer answering every question A place worth recommending without a doubt, especially if you have the occasion to celebrate :)

One of the best meals I've ever had. The food was meticulously crafted and insanely delicious. The staff were all super kind and attentive. It's not cheap (especially if you go to town on the wine list like we did) but it's absolutely worth it. I regret nothing. Would 100% recommend this to anyone looking to treat themselves or a loved one.

Very tasty food but a bit more pricey in comparison with other restaurants that also offer very tasty set menus. We had dinner. Given the seafood platter (which we were drawn to) was an extra that could only be ordered in addition to the dinner set menu, it would have been good if a shorter version of the dinner menu (similar to lunch) was on offer. This way we would not be so full, could finish the food, and more importantly would fully enjoy/taste the flavors of all the dishes right till the end. Nonetheless a wonderful dining experience.

Must do the full dining experience menu with the seafood plate. The flavours were spot on and is an experience. Great service especially from the manager. I was lucky to get a photo and chat with the head chef, Khanh too! Will be back again.
