Nestled in the signature Rainbow Building at 7900 Westpark Drive, TenPehn is right at home in its (relatively) new location. After taking a five-year break from closing the doors on its Washington location, TenPehn re-emerged on the dining scene early last year in the ever-expanding Tysons Corner. The new location caters to a younger demographic, with a slightly more casual atmosphere and free garage parking (valet is $5).
The restaurant carried over only three dishes from its original location and has expanded its menu to include dishes that are inspired by a variety of locations, including Japan, Korea, Cambodia, Thailand, and the Philippines.
TenPehn features popular items like ramen and sushi along with new dishes that you won’t find anywhere else. You’ll find classic Asian and American dishes that have a distinct edge, making the experience of TenPehn unlike that of any other Asian restaurant in the DC area.
TenPehn’s history and new location
TenPehn first opened in 2000, after Chef Jeff Tunks and his partners came back from a trip to Asia. Inspired by the food they had eaten and the environment that had surrounded them, Tunks set to work creating a Pan-Asian restaurant that would deliver culinary delights in a relaxed, yet elegant, Asian-inspired setting.
The new location is inspired by traditional Chinese courtyard houses. You’ll find rooms with a variety of characters, from an outdoor courtyard to rooms near the busy kitchen. Through it all, it feels like you’re sitting in a private home that is uncluttered and calm. The Asian elegance and aesthetic provide an authentic dining experience, right here in Tysons.
