Sunny's has good food if you can ever get served or if it is ever open. I have tried to go there several times and it was closed. Sometimes it's closed for weeks. I just went for a work lunch. It was supposed to open at 11. We got there a little after, there were two people working but no... More

We love this place. It's our favorite for standards like sesame chicken or shrimp pad tai, but the selection is a great feature to the menu. The food is always consistent and the staff are friendly. I hope more people learn how great this place is - it deserves high marks all the way around!

We ate here as part of a family celebration. There were 8 in our group. The food was good, the environment was pleasant and the food came out in a decent amount of time. The waitress seemed somewhat clipped, though.

Finally stopped in for lunch after reading the TA reviews. Don't hesitate for a second not to visit due to the location. It's a 5 minute detour from the thruway. Upon entering I was greeted by a friendly young lady and immediately seated with my drink order taken. My first impression was this place is clean and although the dining... More

Saw this place when we searched on-line for a place to stop in Utica. You might drive right by if you hadn't heard it was good, but its worth the stop. It was about 7 or 8 minutes off the I-90. Drive by all the roadhouses and give it a try. Lots of choices on the menu, good portion size,... More

I was very surprised to be greeted with a warm smile upon entering. I had a large bowel of Pho and the spring rolls. I was disappointed that tripe and tendon wasn't an option . However the beef and meatballs was just fine . I must say the service was great at Sunny. I will be stopping in again .

Very simple and unassuming place. Food is ethnically Vietnamese/Cambodian. They do carry the other "typical" asian cuisine such as Pad Thai, General Tso's chicken, etc. I had the Pho. Pretty spot on. Price was pleasantly cheap too especially for dinner. Owner doubled as the service provider and no issues there. Overall quality obviously relative to the fact it's in Utica... More

I've been to Sunny numerous times and I've never been disappointed. It's an unassuming place but it definitely delivers. It's family run and you can tell they put their heart and souls into their food. The service is slow but it's worth the wait. The food is authentic and delicious. I've had many dishes here and enjoyed every one of... More

A group of friends and I first stopped there two years ago and was amazed at this little gem. We stopped again 2 years later and found it to be a bit lacking. I like things spicy and ordered what the waiter said was the best spicy dish and ended up having to add more chili sauce. Although I must... More

I have driven past Sunny Restaurant countless times and never gave it a second look. Tonight some of the girls and I decided to give it a shot and we were not disappointed! We ordered a couple of appetizers (steamed pork dumplings and shrimp spring rolls) to share. The steamed pork dumplings were to die for! If we had known... More
