We regard this as the very best of Asian food. We love choosing vegetables that are beautifully stir fried and served over rice or noodles (your choice). Molten chocolate desert is a favorite.

First time customer to a big bowl at any location and I must say this place is fantastic. Try the homemade ginger ale but beware it tastes almost like a mojito. My whole group did the stir fry bar which is easy and you get...More

Very good food. I had the pad Thai shrimp bowl and it was very flavorful. Service was great and the food was served quickly.

I loved everything but the ginger ale. The waitress was nice and let me change it to lemonade. We tried the pho and potstickers as a family and each tried different entrees and shared. My favorite was my chicken pad Thai.

Not been here since last year and the food was as good s I remembered, Highly recommend the chicken satay and the Kung Pan chicken with brown rice. Ask for hot sauce if you want to spice it up a bit more.

Best Bowl is always a pleaser for our family. They will even specialize to meet my family's requests and do them perfectly. The Panang Curry is always a winner for me! Nice Dim Sum too!

Love big bowl. I love being able to create my own 'Bowl'. Pick out as many or as few veggies as you like and they stir it up and bring it to you table.... Make sure to get the potstickers!!! Yummy!!!

I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times in the past. This restaurant doesn't disappoint -- food and service are always good. Two suggestions: (1) make the small booths a bit bigger; hard to juggle a winter coat and hand bag in these...More

There’s really only one place for authentic Chinese and Thai–and that’s Big Bowl. It all begins with the highest quality ingredients–naturally raised chicken and beef, heirloom pork, sustainable seafood and produce grown locally. Because Big Bowl believes that the best food is made from scratch, you can taste big, bold layers of flavors in every dish, from the curries right down to the dipping sauces. Everyone raves about the pad Thai, our spicy dishes that are truly hot, and our create-your-own stir-fry–and for good reason. Every element adds up to big taste and takes our food to another level, be it a fresh squeeze of lime, fragrant herbs or the seared Thai chilies. Big Bowl is so big on authentic flavors that even the ginger ale is made with fresh ginger root–from scratch, of course.
