    I’ve been he several times with my boyfriend and it never disappoints. I’m from California, and very used to fresh sushi. This is the only that compares to sushi back home! I will never go to any other place for sushi. The staff is always very kind as well!

    The food is very delicious. Some dishes offer better value than others. The crazy rice was my favorite dish but it is a little bit of a smaller portion for the price. The szechuan chicken is very good as well and that portion size is much larger and a little more reasonable for price. Overall the food is extremely delicious and, albeit expensive, the value is better than other places I have been!

    The food was great, and our server was great. The only true complaint was that the AC was out and the server said it had been out for weeks. It definitely hot in there being that it was end of July in Nashville. Felt bad for the servers to have to work in that environment.

    Everything was perfect. Sunda Nashville is always on our “to do” list when visiting Nashville. We introduced it to our son and daughter-in-law on this trip and they love it too. The food is exceptional and we love the dishes being served family style so we get to experience so many different foods. It is especially fun to visit yhis restaurant, as our last name is Sunda.

    This is a must visit restaurant in the gulch. The service was amazing. Our server made great suggestions. We had the chicken and pork belly bao buns. Amazing taste and worth the money. We also shared the snow crab hand roll. I believe this is the best non-fried food I’ve ever had in nashville. However, the best food item we had was the street corn. It was an amazing mixture of tastes that just melted in your mouth. I would recommend this place.

    Sunda is a fairly bastardized version of Asian food. The sashimi was cut more like thick lunch meat, and left a lot to be desired. The rolls were also too large to eat as a single bite, and dripping w unnecessary things, probably hiding the mediocre fish quality. I ate it all, and was full, but certainly felt like it didn’t live up to the $20-$30 per roll price tag. Service was incredibly awkward, and the restaurant felt pretty chaotic… we had to wait at the front door area while they cleared a table, and there were probably 15 people waiting with no seats or discernible “waiting area”… just uncomfortable shuffling around the front door while people came in and out. That, plus super loud temporary air conditioners blasting on us had us walking away feeling shorted after a $140 meal for two people.

    Two of us plate sharing. Each dish had us wanting more...just the way it should be. The award winning wings did not disappoint and our sushi choices were perfect. Sushi a step up! Cocktails crafted to perfection and our waiter, Seth Rogan doppelganger, hand us covered from our first interaction. Great night in the Gulch for two tourists.

    We’ve been to this restaurant before so this may have been an off night. Service was very slow. Food showed up before the drinks. Waiter was scarce and seemed overwhelmed. Everything took a long time to come out. Food was good so it could have been a wonderful night, but it wasn’t.

    Great service and food. The Panda roll was excellent. It was early so it didn't affect our experience too much, but the tables for couples were too close to each other. Also the air conditioning was out and they were using portables which were not producing the best cooling as it was around 100 degrees that day.

This was our first time dining here and we definitely will be coming back whenever we are in Nashville again. The ambiance was very nice and every person we interacted with was very sweet. The food was fantastic, the best bao buns I've had yet.

    When we arrived the air conditioning was obviously not working there were fans around the restaurant and 2 large portable coolers by the front door. So this didn't just happen I feel we should have been contacted with the issue to decide if we still wanted to go. It was hot! I felt for the staff we were overheated they must have been also. It was hard to enjoy the meal, we ate and left quickly feeling slightly sick from the heat.

    It was a heat index of 110 and unfortunately the AC was not working when we visited for the first time. When the hostess was seating us, she failed to mention what was up with all the fans and swamp coolers sitting around. I finally asked what was going on and if we could move to a cooler area. The food was fine, nothing I’m super excited to try again. The service was fine for being short staffed. Regrettably, we never had our waters refilled and it took almost 30 minutes to get the bill. Won’t be back and I probably wouldn’t suggest this restaurant.

    I will start off by saying that the food was absolutely delicious. Our server was also amazing, very friendly, informative and attentive. What I had a issue with, was that it was ridiculously hot in the entire place. Apparently, the ac system went out. Not that day, but over a week before. I find it utterly despicable that the owner of this establishment would make their staff and their customers suffer in that heat for so long. We were not informed about this at any time. Not when I made the reservation, or the day of the reservation, or even when we arrived. It wasn't until our server apologized for it being so hot, were we told why it was so hot. Being almost 100 degrees that day, I am not sure that we would have even gone there because of that. Maybe that is why they weren't informing people, too afraid people wouldn't eat there. If that is true, it is sad that they would only care for their cash flow, then the comfort of their guests. Whatever the reasoning, i am not sure that i will ever go back. It is unbelievably sad that a nice restaurant such as this has no regard for the comfort of their patrons and employees.
