Bento House Restaurant Review

:
About the restaurant: In its corner location in a popular Reston shopping area, this Japanese eatery draws a crowd. A smartly outfitted ordering bar to the rear of the space displays overhead pictures that indicate some of what patrons can expect. You can carry out your food, but chances are you will find ample seating at one of the small wooden tables.

Food & Drinks: Don’t bypass the appetizers, which include gyoza, edamame, miso soup and a spring roll. Among the mains are the various bento boxes containing vegetables, rice or noodles plus the meat of your choice, such as salmon, chicken or shrimp; with a little extra cash, diners can add on California rolls and spring rolls. But selections expand to encompass sushi and sashimi rolls in many different combos, along with ramen bowls with rich meat broths. There’s a single kid-friendly dish: chicken teriyaki with rice or noodles and vegetables. Mochi ice cream served in sweet rolls is the sole dessert. Iced tea is available.
