My husband and I have eaten here on several occasions. It has always been delicious. Great place to eat when you want your meal to be healthy and tasty. Prices were low and quality of food high. Can't beat that!

It's basically all you can eat stir fry. You mix and match whatever you want. Lunch is pretty cheap! I would recommend everyone to try it at least once.

Sloppy, warn and cheap. College atmosphere at best. Busy! Food was good as you could pick your own including the meat or shrimp. A place to fuel up.

I will never go back. I walked in and no one employee spoke with me. I had to ask my friends who had been here before how the place works. Essentially you get unlimited stir fry... But you really don't want more than 1 bowl! They have a salad bar setup, but for stir fry. I'm 6 foot 1, and... More

Enjoyed the freedom to pick whatever I wanted from the bar - allowed me to try different combinations of stir fry. Plenty of sauce choices as well which was also a bonus. They coach you on choices by providing what each is and what the flavor and spice will be once cooked. The dude running the place when I was... More

I enjoy coming here for lunch every so often with co-workers. I love that they have a variety of veggies, sauces, and other items that I can create my own custom stir fry bowl. For those who have never been before, it is definitely something you should do. You are given a bowl, you up and put your ingredients in... More

I came here once with a friend and had so much fun I later brought my husband on a date night. The Green Bowl is a casual restaurant hibachi-style: you pick out what you want and hand it to the chef. If it's your first time visiting, ask the server for the run-down. There are numbers and tags you put... More

Came here for lunch with two other people. The restaurant was quite busy, but even so we didn't have to wait too long to have our food cooked. I came with a vegan, and this place has an entirely separate wok in which to cook vegan foods so there's no cross-contamination. The stir-fry foods were fresh and abundant. Check out... More
