There are some great option on the menu if you have food allergies. They are really careful about making sure your need is met. Love the Pho soup and the lettuce wraps.

Can get very crowded, but service usually keeps up. Great food- Chinese & Thai (Asian fusion?), dishes are well described if you are a first timer, and they are very accommodating.

Stayed at the Hampton Inn next door. As Big Bowl is very popular, it was easier to order and pick up to take out the yummy food. Enjoyed teriyaki salmon and green beans, lemon chicken and various rices.

Do you have a Big Bowl restaurant in Las Vegas, Nv. or one that you would consider that would be as good as yours?
