Unexpected changes

A treat for my best friend and I. After a most stressful day, we were looking forward to the HK Cosmo and Hibiscus martinis. We were seated and were made to wait for over 15 minutes before a very new manager came over to take our drinks order. We waited some more and our server still didn't appear. Luckily, another server, Matt, took pity on us and took our order. Finally, our server arrived to introduce himself.... view more

The BEST asian cuisine this side of the Pacific.

I have been to many places in Asia tasting different Asian cuisine; both fusion and indigenous. I had some impressive food in India, Singapore, and Thailand, but Big Bowl is really the best I've had in the U.S. I noticed that some people have complaints about the service and I am really sorry to hear that, because the several times I was there, the service was just FINE. Don't go to Ben Pao, where every dish tast... view more

Avoid on Saturday Nights...In fact...Avoid the place all together!

After waiting for over 40 minutes even though there were 4 available tables, we were finally seated. Our waiter was great, but the hostess was out of this world. It seemed as if she didn't know what she was doing and had parties waiting when there were tables open. After we were seated, our waiter came by and took out drink order. The drinks were fine until I decided to actually look at what I was sipping and found a... view more

Go now

I eat here whenever I am downtown - which is often- and I have to say all of my experiences have been top-notch. The spicy sesame noodles are full of flavor - just a touch of heat - and the potstickers even better. A nice thin skin, unlike the industrial kind you get at allegedly Chinese restaurants. I love the teriyaki glazed spareribs - fall off the bone with excellent flavor and the chow fun which has that wok-... view more

Average food, overpriced

Hate to say it, but PF Chang's, a CHAIN restaurant, had better chinese food. In fact, the only thing I liked about the restaurant was the pomogranate gingerale. But, even that was just OKAY. I liked that part of their menu consisted of food that was solely devoted to ""hot"" entrees. I had the spicy sichuan beef. Yes, it was nice and spicy but it really wasn't all that spectacular. A $20 meal of an okay specialty dr... view more

Food had no flavor and the entrees were expensive for a chinese food restaurant. I went with a group of six and EVERYONE had to choke down their food. I regret having to pay for a meal that was so bad.

Excellent Food

The food was excellent and the prices were very reasonable and the service was great. Bring your appetite because portions are generous. The only minor complaint was that the front wall of the restaurant opens to the street and the day we went was hot and muggy, so it was hot and muggy inside too. The food was still great though.
