I've eaten here multiple times and the spicy chicken (which is actually tofu-- the restaurant is all vegetarian) is unbelievably good. Do yourself a favor and try it. The dumplings are also excellent, as other reviewers have pointed out. Compared to some restaurants in Auckland, they also have pretty decent prices.

As coming from SG/MY, this is really good Thai/Chinese food. The Thai dishes are excellent with mock meat available in most of their dishes. The fish cakes and the dumplings are among our favourite starters.

As for the mains, all the rice dishes are up to standards, and the noodle dishes have a few good choices.

The quantity supplied of the dishes are big, so do watch out especially if you're coming from Asia with Asian quantity expectations

Sunflower Thai Vegetarian is a cute, comfortable restaurant tucked away in High Street that we discovered last year and fell in love with. Ever since our first taste, we have religiously been back every time we are in Auckland.

The food is delicious and fresh (the dumplings are truly the best dumplings we've ever eaten!), and the staff are very kind and appreciative. There has even been times when the chef will take time to talk to the customers at the counter.

Can't remember recommend it enough!

The vegan pad Thai here was delicious! The service was friendly and the decor was quirky. The location is a little bit hard to find because it's hidden behind a Chinese dumpling restaurant. Just walk back into the building, around the Chinese restaurant, and you'll find it. Such delicious vegan food! I would go here every day if I could!

Some of the best (authentic) Thai and vegan/vegetarian food I have ever had and I have tried tons all over the world. Made with a lot of care, perfectly good and balanced. Everything we ordered was delicious, the service was super friendly. Healthy with big portions. Highly recommend the appetisers (dumplings, curry puffs), burgers, the curries and mixed vegetables. Cannot wait to go back.
