Success! Thanks for posting your review of Big Bowl. You’ve done the world some good today.

I like that hot noodle

I ate here the other day. I got this noodle with peanuts and chicken. It was spicy! I loved it. I also ordered their homemade ginger ale. That was good stuff. I recommend it. The service was a little slow but it was worth it.

Great place for a fun, casual meal

Granted, I wouldn't call it Asian's American food with Asian inspiration. But we were looking for a place we could go with the kids, where we wouldn't get glared at if they cried or threw their silverware on the floor, but still have a grown up evening out. Big Bowl fit the bill perfectly. We were seated promptly, it was right before 8pm on a Tuesday night. It was busy, but I felt comfortable because th... view more

Pretty good (but order chicken well done!)

Went here with my girlfriend after a day of shopping and browsing the library. Service was pretty good, no complaints there. My girlfriend had some sort of spicy basil chicken dish, which was quite tasty, very fresh, etc. \r \r Problems arose with my Panang Curry Chicken; after a couple of bites, I noticed that the majority of the chicken was just barely cooked through, and a few pieces were seared on the outside, ... view more

Fun, place with really good Chinese food!

Ended up at Big Bowl with a party from work. The place was busy, so we had a few at the bar. Nice atmosphere with a very friendly staff. No rush attitude. After a short while, we were led to our table.\r \r We ended up ordering a number of appetizers for the group. Waitress was very accomodating to us. Our appetizers ranged from chicken satay to lettuce wraps to something akin to a Chinese dumpling. All was ... view more

Icky Utensils

Not a great experience. At first glance, Big Bowl seemed like a really nice, intimate-casual dining place with redish oriental decor that will caught your eye. When you sit down, they will make an effort to offer you some sort of gingerale. Service took longer than usual. They seemed to be short on staff that day. The first thing I notice was how dirty the plates appeared, as if there were lots of soap residue. I ... view more

Fun, Funky Asian Cuisine

A nice departure from traditional Chinese restaurants. My friend loves the Crispy Orange Peel Chicken. The service has always been prompt and friendly, and we've never had to wait for a table. The atmosphere mirrors the food - a mix of traditional and contemporary. A fun place for lunch.

User review by dkfs

Food is extremely fresh. Atmosphere is great. Presenation of the food is wonderful. The Ultimate Appitizer is a must! You get a taste a little of everything. The crispy lemon chicken is always a big hit as well. And you can't leave without trying their gingerale. It is the best I have ever had. Seating can be a bit challenging. They usually won't seat you unless your entire party is in the restaurant. But, ... view more

What is this?

Who is cooking this food? Have they tasted it? The atmosphere and presentation is wonderful but the food needs improvement. The big chopsticks on the big bowl sign need to be removed because no Asian person can call the food Asian cuisine.

I was impressed by the Big Bowl outside, but that was where it ended. The food was a big disappointment.
