Reston has a new Japanese restaurant. Bento House Sushi, Noodles & Grill opened its doors last Saturday.
Owner Eric Zhou said he spent months looking for the right “high-concentration” location that offered a mix of businesses and residences. He found what he was looking for at 11790 Baron Cameron Ave., in a former chiropractor’s office at the Home Depot Center).
Zhou spent five months renovating the space, which now offers no-frills Japanese at very reasonable prices.
“At Reston Town Center, restaurants are very expensive,” said Zhou, a Restonian who has managed several franchise restaurants but is setting out as an owner for the first time. “I wanted to open some place with a good environment and consistent, quality food.”
All of the dishes are made on-the-spot from fresh ingredients, he said. By offering fast food-style service, the savings is passed on to the diners, who can get a full meal at Bento House for about $10.
Some of the specialities:
