Busara Thai Restaurant (11964 Market Street) has permanently closed its Reston Town Center location.
The restaurant, which served up authentic Thai cuisine, closed on Saturday, May 19, ending 13 years of business in Reston’s urban core.
An employee with the restaurant told Reston Now the decision was driven by the shift from free to paid parking in Reston Town Center.
“Revenue just went down the drain,” the employee said. The owner was not immediately available for comment.
A representative for Boston Properties said a new tenant has not yet been identified. The restaurant has one other location at 8142 Watson Street in McLean.
