Review: Sunda

Sunda

In terms of positive attributes, Sunda is a fairly large, trendy restaurant in a prime location with a wide variety menu items.

Whether you want to visit the restaurant will likely depend on whether you’re footing the bill yourself and whether you care about food more than location or decor (if the answer to either is “yes,” I’d skip Sunda).

Gorgeous costumes, a talented cast, high production values, and a script far funnier than I’d anticipated all contribute to a stellar tour.
