Wonderful service and food. The favours and attention to detail were amazing
Wonderful dining experience with very attentive staff
Excellent food and customer service - would highly recommend.
We booked via open table and booked the a la carte menu option. When we arrived, we were seated upstairs, despite one of our group being on crutches. The stairs are very steep and the floor was quite slippery. One of the staff then started talking us through the tasting menu - but we informed them we had booked a la carte. The manager was unable to see us at the time, and we agreed to the tasting menu thinking it was $110 per person as this was the only price listed on the paper menu we were given. Several courses through we discovered that was the price for matched wine pairing, and were informed it was in fact $170pp. We then spoke to the manager, who refused to believe the a la carte menu was an option on open table until we showed him using one of our phones. The food was not very good, and everyone was still hungry at the end of the 5 courses we had. Would not return, and would not recommend.
Excellent food and service and great value and thoroughly enjoyed our lunch
Absolutely loved this place. Great food and great service.
My favourite restaurant by far! Great wine pairing too
The food and service were amazing. Everything that came out looked and tasted amazing and the staff were super friendly and informative. Would highly recommend
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.
Such a lovely experience - our waiter was Michael who was exceptional. We all loved the food, wine and cocktails and thought the lunch menu was very well priced.
We absolutely loved Sunda. The food was elegant, creative and delicious. It was great value for money. We also matched the wines to the food and it was great trying wines we hadn’t had previously. The staff are very friendly and deliver great customer service. We will be back!
Incredible food and service. Good selection of drinks. Nice interiors.
Highly recommended for a special night out. The food is delicious and wonderfully creative! We had the vegetarian banquet and were impressed with the thought and attention to detail with each course. Lovely wait staff that know how to give just the right amount of service without being too intrusive. Be prepared to spend for the experience.
The service was excellent as was the food. They catered for a seafood allergy very well. Some of the matching wine choices seemed a bit unusual but they paired with the courses very well.
We had a great time at Sunda. The vegetarian menu was delicious and beautifully presented (we can't stop thinking about the vegemite curry roti!) and the staff were professional and fun. Can't wait to go back.
Outstanding Food and Service.
The Food is unique and Exciting.
My Second Time Definately not my last.
Incredible combinations of really delicious and unusual flavours. Efficient and friendly service. Unfortunately our first choice of wine was not available. Lots of food, perhaps too much, and surprising that the “signature” dish is apparently can be an added extra.
Phenomenal food and service. Highly recommend. Great experience
While a little pricey by some comparisons, there is no doubt that Sunda provides an exquisite gustatory experience and a sublime level of service.
Wonderful to be back and look forward to when open menus return. Lovely dinner.
Absolutely beautiful. Truly some of the tastiest food I have ever had. It was a brilliant experience and I highly recommend!
Each dish was well presented and full of flavour. Taste unique and thoughtful. Only criticism was the dessert with beetroot sorbet was too much. Prefered if it had been half the size in quantity and less beetroot. Beetroot was overpowering.
Also, the medium-large bowls for the dessert were too large. My opinion only. Such delicate desserts needed a smaller bowl.
Otherwise, we thought the dishes were wonderful.
Please let me know when you are changing the set menu so that my daughter and I can come again to try the next morsels.
Worth our 12 months wait!
Really great. Both the food and the service were exceptional.
We overindulged; adding the Seafood plate (I think $58 pp) and matching drinks, $110 pp, to the Full Sunda Experience ($168pp) thus coming out with a bill of about $700 at the end of the night.
Not a place for every week...or month, just because of the price tag but I must say it felt worthy of every penny.
Outstanding food. Super interesting flavours and hard to find a comparable restaurant in Melbourne at the moment in asian cuisine. Hats off to everyone involved.
We had the Sunda's classic menu (including 1x vegetarian). Every dish felt really fun, and the matched wines paired well. The pie tees and honeycomb cakes were highlights (as well as the old fashioned cocktail and another champagne cocktail I can't remember the name of).
Excellent service made the whole experience feel really special. Staff were attentive, friendly, and got us excited for each dish.
I've been once before, and both experiences have been great. One of my favourite restaurants in Melbourne for sure!
We went for the last night before lockdown and honestly can safely say was the BEST dining experience I’ve had this year! Special highlight was the truffle added to their amazing Vegemite curry and roti. Service was outstanding and we got the matched wines which balanced everything perfectly. Went out of their way just happy we could support!
Too much flavors going on in each dish.
Too coconutty in some
Amazing meal before going back to lockdown.
Sunda has been long one of my favourite restaurants in Mebourne. It is a true celebration of Melbourne food scene.. Chef Khanh and Sunda team celebrate our diverse culture by honouring so many south east asian ingredients, techniques and traditional dishes. The whole menu is delicious and playful.
Amazing buttery melt in your mouth Roti with curry Vegemite is definitely all time favourite. There might be dishes that challenge your palate and tastebud but I think it is all part of the experience.
Highly recommended to everyone who’d like to experience the best of Melbourne..
This is one of Melbourne's best restaurants. Clever cooking, explosive flavours and an enjoyable experience from start to finish.
A stunning and evocative dining experience. Sumptuous and generous helpings, hearty and powerful flavours, exquisite and creative presentation, and attentive and friendly service. Excellent value for money and a fantastic establishment. Looking forward to returning when I can.
Excellent ways of reinterpreting South East Asian flavours
Big fan of Sunda. We had their classics menu and it was incredible as usual. Every attempt of hygiene and social distancing was adhered to without effect on service. Such a great place.
Incredible experience! Food was outstanding, nothing like we’ve experienced before. The service was also commendable - our waitress (Lily?) was so lovely and friendly. They also brought out a nice little dessert and candle to celebrate my partners birthday - a 10/10 experience overall!
Amazing service, incredible meal. Could not have chosen a better first meal out of isolation. Thankyou so much.
Exciting and tasty as hell food.
Incredible food- one of the best meals I’ve had in Melbourne. The service was just as good. Will definitely be back.
The service was warm, welcoming and wonderful! Excellent adherence to social distancing recommendations. Please go, have a rendang pie, the best roti you will ever eat, and thank god for places like Sunda!
It's been my second time. I life in Amsterdam so it's not around the corner 😊.
This place does not disappoint me. Their knowledge about the food and wine 👌🏾.
Still love the vibe of the interior.
So delicious - highly recommend and will be coming back many times.
