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... More

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

Everyone raves about this place so we were shocked by our meal. For one thing, I assumed the menu would have more than about 95% Asian dishes. For goodness sake, Italians make lots of vegetarian dishes but I believe there was only one Italian dish. I ordered that one--spaghetti and tomato sauce. Inedible. It's like the sauce was made of...

I'm a vegetarian, and I love it! OMG, I hate meat! This place has it all, except the gross meat that people eat! General Tso's is so yummy! OH-MY-GOLLY! I go here with my BFF (he's a Man's man, and he OBVIOUSLY loves food..teeheehee), and he always shares the yummy dishes with me! He's great for coming here, but he... More

Really love this restaurant -- good food, good location -- but definitely has an alternative vibe. Very low key. It actualy reminds me most of my college co-op. So it's the sort of place you have to really be in the mood for. But can't be beat for veggie/vegan offerings. And I always walk out of there feeling like I've... More

We have been regulars of Sunflower for years and I have yet to try half of the selections on the expansive menu because everything we get is worth getting over and over again! Although we live at least thirty minutes away, it is not uncommon that we make the drive on a weekly basis. Is we are celebrating a Birthday,... More

We did order as much as we could fit on our table so we could take it home. Each dish was fantastic. The best part if going to Sunflower is the friendly service. Wish we could go there every day!
