Perhaps the best hot & sour soup. Pepper Thai entree was hot and very favorable. Worth a trip out of your way

The chinese food at Big Bowl is not in the usual flavors of a normal chinese place. The service is just ok and the pricing is a bit steep. If I'm ever given a choice of where to eat, I avoid here at all costs.

Right in the middle of Reston town centre with nice large restaurant. Was convinced by server to have the green curry. It was only mediocre although loaded with vegetable. Not a bad place but I've certainly had better green curry.

Service - Good. Atmosphere - modern and very open. There were booths though that could make it feel more private. Most of the foods were seafood based but there were other things to eat. My food was good but not amazing.

Asian food isn't my favorite but I really liked the food here. Potstickers were excellent. The Pad Thai with shrimp was the best Asian dish I have ever had. Never had cilantro on Asian food before. Service was better than most.
