One great thing about Sunflower Vietnamese is that the portions are gigantic - if you walk in here and each person orders something off the menu, there won’t be any table left to put dishes down on. Aside from that, a lot of the food has a build-it-yourself component, from the Vietnamese crepes you roll up in rice paper to our favorite, the flaming beef and prawns that you make lettuce wraps out of. This place gets packed with families and older couples, but if you’re neither of those, you won’t feel out of place here at all - it’s just that kind of spot where everyone shows up.
