near Yone Gyi Rd, east of market, Kantar Quarter, Nyaungshwe, Myanmar

Serves meat, vegan options available. Similar food offering as other restaurants in town but its vegetarian set menu is vegan-suitable and worth noting. Owner understands the concept of veganism and also owns Zu Zu's cooking class. Closes 9pm during low season. Open Mon-Sun 9:00am-10:00pm.

First Review by johan.soderblom

A must do in Nyaungshwe - Edit

We went to Sunflower for dinner the first day in Nyaungshwe and we loved it! Wonderful food and great service. We asked Zu Zu about her cooking class and we signed up. It was a lovely day with a fun market trip and then a horse carriage ride to the family’s villa for the cooking and eating!! We were introduced to some Burmese food at the market and we were happy that we didn’t eat breakfast! You will get a lot of food! Good food! Do it!

Pros: Excellent food, Good price, Great fun

Delicious, great staff, awesome cooking class! - Edit

We went to Sunflower once the day before the cooking class and we're very happy with the meal size, taste, and the price! Like other reviews say, they are fully accomodating to a vegan diet. Either Zu Zu or Gu Gu (sisters) will take your order as they both understand English best. Their mother is usually the chef.
We did the cooking class and were blown away afterward. It is definitely worth your 20'000 kyat (other places are less but I highly doubt they could provide the same experience). Zu Zu took us on a our of the market and taught us a lot about local ingredients. If you're not sure - ask her! The cooking class was great and a full family affair, you know you're supporting local when you go to her class. We also had the privilege of learning Zu Zu's life story. I won't say more, but it is truly amazing. Talk to her about it. She also wrote down in Burmese our vegan food requirements to show other restaurants (we were served milk accidentally in Bagan and quite sick afterward).
We made a true friend in Zu Zu and want to see her again. Her food is great, her cooking class is fun and educational. Please support her and her family's endeavours. I would have given 5 stars but could not due to the restaurant serving meat options.

Vegan options available. Vegan cooking classes available - Edit

Zuzu and Gugu are sisters and are the two main waitresses who understand what vegan is and have a very good command of english. The food has no chilli added but it is served with a side plate for you to add yourself. They have plenty of options at very cheap prices with great service.

The cooking class is 4hrs long ans costs 20,000mmk as of mid 2017 and is totally worth it. You have the ability to alter the set menu (she is happy to make vegan as i did). Zuzu takes you on a tour of the only market in town, educates and purchases ingredients for you and then you head to her cooking school for around 7 dishes

Pros: good command of english, understands veganism, great service and tasty food

Nice food and enormous portion - Edit

We were delighted to find this restaurant with veg options in Nyaung Shwe. The vegetarian set meal comes with drink, soup, salad, main dish, and stir-fried vegetables. The portion was huge and I was struggling to finish all the food. The tofu curry was nice as well as the tea leaf salad.

One of the best meals of the trip! - Edit

I had their vegetarian set menu and it was so good that I returned the next day. Includes a soup, a salad, a main dish with rice and a few side dished as well as a fruit plate. All this for a few dollars.

Pros: Suitable for vegans, Food served hot, Great tasting
