I loved it! Celebrated my bday with friends and i ll be back,
Excellent food, very accommodating to dietary requirements. Friendly staff:) Will definitely go back
The food is original and fabulous. Delightful wait staff. We had a wonderful time. 😊
Lots of lovely interesting and tasty food that also look and perform (cigars!) like pretty little art works on the plate.
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.
We were super excited to try this place, but left quite disappointed. It felt like there was no heating, staff were not overly friendly or attentive and didn't really explain what we were being served. Plates were cleared with food remaining and while some people were still eating. We shared the banquet between 5, some dishes were great, others average, but there just wasn't enough food! Some dishes we could barely even divide into 5. The mouthful of Peruvian chicken I had was super tasty, so was the slow cooked lamb and the kingfish ceviche. The plantain cigar for dessert was super yum too, but again, was put in front of us with no explanation which actually ruined the surprise theatre of the dish. On that note, the food was presented really well...but I'm paying for tasty food, not an Instagram photo. A shame.
We went to ONDA last night, 7 mummas for a catch up dinner and it was absolutely fantastic! The food was delicious - we selected the ‘Feed me’ option and couldn’t believe the different variety of beautiful food that we received...and for only $49! The service was pretty good, only waited a bit for drinks at times. But we had a fantastic dinner at ONDA, highly recommend 👌🏼
Everything was amazing!!!! Food was so good, wasnt too expensive, quick and friendly service that was timed/planned well. Enjoyable, not over crowded, good volume, lighting and comfortable. Most plates are designed for sharing but the small bowls with high edges made itt a little hard. Would suggest smaller edge bowls/plates for sharing.
Opted for the “feed me” menu and was very happy. My fellow diner, a globetrotting Argentinian proclaimed that this was the best dining experience of his last 15 years. sublime degustation that got better with every dish, with a dessert that is worthy of a masterchef masterclass
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
