I looked forward to this meal all day however was sadly disappointed - at best the food could be described as average. The mixed dumpling starter was warm'ish, the orange chicken was tasty and the vegetable and grilled tofu fried rice was gluggy and bland. The fried rice should be renamed boiled rice. Soooo disappointed. It was a busy evening... More

I always like the sangria. The vegtables are fresh and there are lots of options. The sesame chicken has great flavor. We had good service until the end when we couldn't get our bill to be cashed out. The atmosphere is inviting. There is indoor and outdoor seating plus a bar. Often you can bring home the cooking smells in... More

Visiting with a large group and the service was very good. Attentive, well organized and planned concerning food delivery. Food itself was good. As noted above the egg rolls and crab Rangoon were very tasty, as were the sauces served with them. Main dishes were good. Full bar and many beer selections made it a complete evening.

This restaurant offers both Thai and Chinese cuisines. Very limited menu. A little expensive but with it. Try their fresh Calamari. Our waitress was in a bit hurry to take our order. We feel rush.. No forks or chopsticks on the table after food arrived. Anyway place is clean and will go back.

Good place if you want to try some spicy Thai and Chinese dishes, and be ready to wait for some time, if you have not booked table in advance, it generally very crowded. Pad Thai, cashew chicken and potstickers are our all time favorites here.

I come from the country and we don't get such treats as pad Thai so when I get a chance, I will eat it. I really enjoyed our meal and look forward to the next time.

Fun, tasty, and fresh. Often a long wait, so make reservations. Not a ton of vegetarian options, but several good ones. The vegetable pot stickers are really good. Friendly staff, great location for shopping and other fun.

Stopped at Big Bowl restaurant after trip to IKEA. Found restaurant on Trip Advisor and decided to try it out. Best choice of the day! Appetizers-SEARED AHI TUNA AND AVOCADO SUMMER ROLL. Awesome! Main Course: Panang Curry Chicken and Mongolian Beef. Wonderful flavors. If you are in the Schaumburg area, this is a must visit place to go!

Thank Michael W
