Great vegetarian food

Even my meat-lover husband enjoys Sunflowe. Nice variety of dishes. Love the Golden Nuggets, but everytthing I've tried has been delicious. Nice, quiet plqce, but good for kids. Try it, you'll love it.

My husband and I have dined here every time we've been in the area, for almost 20 years now. We visited last weekend and once again, everything from the decor to service to food was magnificent! Favorites include the steamed dumplings, the sweet and sour, and any desert on the menu.

My wife and I discovered this delight in the late '90s and make a point of dining here any time we visit family in the area. It features a bright, welcoming dining room, bedecked playfully with all manner of sunflower-themed decorations that will put a smile on anyone's face. Service is friendly, quick, and attentive. And the food is just... More

We used to live in Vienna, VA and enjoyed this restaurant then. Since we have moved out of state we make a point of eating here when we are visiting the area. This time we ate there on Sunday, December 14. The Sunflower is an Asian fusion vegetarian restaurant. I usually get the General Tso's Surprise and really like it.... More

I'm a vegetarian, but just because you write the words 'organic' and 'tofu' in your menu doesn't mean it's worth anything…. besides being a vegetarian I love the taste of vegetables and I love eating healthy, this experience was anything but…. the food was greasy, the sauces were full of starch of some sort, the tofu was of very low...

This is one of my favorite restaurants. It is small, clean and the staff is very friendly. The food is delicious and is fresh. The Vegan General Tso's Tofu is my favorite, but I also love the vegetable fried rice among many other dishes. The price is right as well. My children all love eating here too! Every time we...

I had a wonderful meal at Sunflower restaurant. They have a nice variety of dumplings, both steamed and fried, with different fillings. They had a wide assortment of noodles and rice dishes in addition to vegetable dishes. The service was professional and courteous. We had a delightful experience.

I am not a vegetarian or a vegan, I do like vegetarian food every now and then. Got together with a couple of vegetarian buddies, and she suggested this place where she had been for years. It is a bid of a drive from DC, 45 minutes to Vienna. The restaurant has its own parking spot, so parking is not... More

There are hundreds of eating options available in Northern Virginia. If you're a vegan/vegetarian, you have to put this one on your shortlist. Good clean eating, uber attentive service, AND fresh carrot juice. Solo dining. Corner table romantic. Oh, and if your dining partners can't handle the healthy eats, there's always McDonald's next-door (HA!). Seriously, though, a jewel of a... More
