The staff were under the pump but very accommodating. The food was amazing!!
Shared plates for 4 people. Beautiful fresh food and desserts
It was one of the best dining experiences we have had. The food was exceptional, the staff helpful; we'll certainly be returning with friends. Best eatery in Bridge Road!
Great food! Service was decent, the restaurant was a bit loud but worth it for the food. Would definitely come back!
Onda is a new Latin American restaurant in the bustling Bridge Road area of Richmond. They serve a dazzling array of small and sharing dishes, with a range of cocktails and desserts too. The restaurant has a pink feature wall brightening up the room, and a blue swirl of booths in the middle of the restaurant discrete dining spaces that you can still peek over to see what the neighbours are eating next door! We started off with cassava, sweet potato chips and guacamole. The slice of lemon was a nice touch. These were crispy, crunchy and left me wanting more. Next up, Wild Fungi serve in the wood where it was grown. These mushrooms came in served in earthy wood, giving it a great aroma and presentation. I could taste black wood ear, oyster, swiss brown and Shimigi mushrooms, with pickled shallots for good measure. Just a great variety of textures in there. Really nice vegan option. The wagyu brisket was tender and delicious, with an intense sweet potato puree and chimichurri underneath. Nice plating presentation too. We decided to lighten things up with a broccolini salad next. The highlight of the salad was the toasted almond dressing/sauce in on the bottom, an oily delight. I kind of wished we were recommended a lighter salad with all the other meat dishes, but definitely a delicious dish on its own merits. Now for the highlight! The crispy pork belly was rich and decadent. More meaty flavours came in the form of beef fat croutons, and even a beef sauce to pour on top! Struth, there were two types of beetroot on the side, a purple puree and a yellow pickled version. Hiding underneath we found mofongo, a amazing mushy and seasoned banana cake. This dish is a must-have. The staff were relaxed and friendly. Their menu was refreshed this week, and we were really impressed. The prices are good value considering the portion sizes. Lots of dairy-free options on the menu too. If you’re looking for a great Latin American restaurant, I’d highly recommend Onda.
The food was delicious at Onda. We tried almost everything and could not complain about a thing. It was a very busy night and the staff kept happy and attentive at all times. My only complaint was the noise level. It was almost unbearable and I think they should consider insulation/foam under the tables to absorb some sound? Otherwise a great night
Lovely atmosphere but be aware it gets relatively loud. Drinks took a while but were well made. Food was mostly enjoyable, particularly the black dog prawns and chocolate cigar. Skip the puffs. Staff were lovely although could have used an extra to allow them some space. Would go again
Food was great and came out quickly, though the customer service was a little inconsistent. Some tables were getting their drinks poured for them, we didn’t. Some had cutlery replaced with napkins, we didn’t. Some had the plates put out in front of them, we had the placed on the corner of the table for us to do ourselves.
Absolutely delicious food and great service. Had the feed me menu which gave a huge range of the menu - black prawn dogs, mozarella puffs, cassava chips, plantain chips, cerviche, 3-4 mains and a dessert. Will be back!
Had a great night at this new Gem! The staff were great and the food was delicious! Highly recommend the eggplant to share and the cigars for dessert! We’ll be back!
