A new Southeast Asian restaurant is on its way to Fairfax’s Scout on the Circle

A new Southeast Asian restaurant will join Scout on the Circle in Fairfax this September, business owner Gary Ngo says.

Located at 9530 Fairfax Blvd next to Peri Peri Original, Southeast Impression is slated to occupy a 4,104-square-foot spot in Building Two of the popular mixed-use strip — the largest commercial space in the building, according to a site plan from property manager H&R Retail.

Ngo expressed that the restaurant will serve a “variety” of Southeast Asian cuisine, including dishes from Thailand, Singapore, Laos and Malaysia. Patrons will also be able to enjoy an in-house craft bar.

Just a few buildings down from Southeast Impression is Genki Izakaya, a Japanese restaurant that Ngo also owns and opened in February 2022. Ngo acquired both properties after receiving a “better deal” to sign a lease on two properties rather than one, he explained.

A seasoned restauranteur who serves as vice president of operations for Idea Restaurant Group, Ngo also operates Urban Hot Pot (2980 District Avenue, Unit 110) and Gyu Shige Japanese BBQ & Bar (2980 District Avenue, Unit 100) in Merrifield’s Mosaic District.

Scout on the Circle first opened in late 2020, currently leasing to 400 apartments and 11 different commercial tenants, including Southeast Impression. The site plan appears to indicate two vacancies in Building One of the strip.
