Located in a shopping area in Reston, this Big Bowl is easy to find with close parking available and the food, as always, is delicious!

This is our first time eating at a Big Bowl and were impressed by the food. My husband had Thai and my daughter and I had Chinese. All dishes were amazing and tasty. I had the seasonal sangria which was yummy - blackberry I think...either way, it was good. My husband enjoyed the micro-brews on tap.

Wasn't blown away by the restaurant but went there with 6 friends and we had a good time and food was good. We didn't have a reservation but seating was not an issue. We mentioned it was our first time and were given a free order of fried won ton. So don't forget to mention it's your first time :)

My husband and I went to big bowl Saturday for a late afternoon dinner. We choose to sit outside since the weather was nice. We waited five minutes just for a server to come by to order our drinks. This guy was terrible, never a smile, never asked us how we were doing, nothing. After our food arrived , he... More

This was my second outing to Big Bowl Asian Kitchen. The service by our server Ian was exceptional. He was friendly, helpful and professional. He was available to help us at our table in a timely manner. He was able to provide us with recommendations regarding available dishes. Our food was exquisite to say the least. I ordered the Calamari... More

This place has great food, but you should avoid the tom yum soup. The soup tasted like peanuts and feet. Maybe it was just that time, but as i said, great besides the soup.

Great place for family meals. A vibrant atmosphere with farm to table options. Portions were generous and you could definitely split meals. Definitely recommended.

Had the chicken curry. Very good. Also a pomegranite sangria. Very good experience. If I have to say one thing negative, it would be regarding price. But even that's not a issue. I am not familiar with this chain and this was my first experience. I'd give it an a+.

My husband got to choose where he wanted to go for Father's day dinner, so we went to Big Bowl down town Reston. We choose to sit outdoor under an umbrella and it was perfect! Our server came and took our drink order. Then, we ordered from their Thai selection: we both had Thai hot pepper with rice, and added... More

We stopped here after our flight home from Germany & were looking forward to some great Chinese/Thai. The fried dumpling they brought us complimentary was nice outside, but the filling was just like paste. The Panang Chicken Curry was nicely presented & the veggies (peas & snow peas) were perfect. The sauce, however, was VERY salty tasting. It really overpowered... More
