I tried make my own bowl and my wife tried Kung Pao Chicken - both were excellent. Good choices and fresh stuff. Service could be improved. For a Monday night and only few tables seated food still took a good hour to arrive.

Colleagues and I have enjoyed numerous lunches at Big Bowl and never really been disappointed. Dishes are always fresh with a mulitude of varying flavors. If you like it a bit more spicy - ask for additional peppers! The portions are huge. Share.

A vibrant busy restaurant with excellent food and service. During our stay in Reston this place was consistently good. The food was fresh and tasty, the service excellent and the happy hour of beer and sangria was a huge draw card.
