Big Bowl-Rosedale Mall -
Best Restaurants in Roseville
I have a friend who meets me for
lunch once every two weeks. Big Bowl is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is consistently fresh and delicious, and the service is impeccable; actually above and beyond. I stuck with my favorite dish, the shrimp pad Thai. Best pad Thai I've ever had, and I've tried a lot. The hibiscus iced tea is always fabulous. Wonderfully refreshing and so tasty! We shared some pot stickers and an egg roll. Both got a unanimous thumbs-up. The molten chocolate cake with coconut ice cream was eye-rollingly wonderful, and made even better paired with a nice cup of French roast coffee. We're already planning our next lunch at Big Bowl, and I think I'll be adventurous and try something new!"

We really enjoy the food at Big
Bowl, so we generally accept that at the Roseville location you will get poor service during busy hours. There are servers we have repeatedly (experienced) that continue to make mistakes on orders and ignore the table for long periods of time (especially inconvenient when the table is having drinks and there is not even water at the table). This is usually done with an oblivious smile, so it may be somewhat the training. Since we are patient, we usually don't mind this too much having been frequent enough to lower expectations about service. On the other hand, the food is always fresh and delicious. The hot and sour soup is great! Stir fry gives anyone the chance to make the exact dish they want."

We celebrated a birthday here. He
and his wife are vegetarians, but we are not. We all were very happy with our meals (loved the left-overs the next day) and the drinks. They have a good drink and beer list, but their ginger teas are also excellent."

We must have had a new waiter, he
didn't know the menu, didn't follow up on several things, I had to ask more than once for eating utensils. Gave a positive reaction to a meal for my husband, when my husband didn't enjoy it, he said he had to "get through" eating the meal as well. If he is our waiter again, I will move and likely re consider returning. We are regulars."

It is a Chinese and Thai
restaurant. As a Chinese, I feel the Chinese food is mediocre, but I really like the Thai food there. The Pad Thai with shrimp taste especially good."

We went on Mother's Day with a
party of ten. The wait for drinks and food were exceptionally long, and our server disappeared completely for at least fifteen minutes. The food had less meat than remembered from previous visits, and the kids meals were ridiculous--three cups of white rice and five tiny nuggets of chicken, no veggies at all. We then finished our meal and asked for the bill. Forty minutes later we got our bill...my drink had been charged wrong, but it so wasn't worth the wait to get it changed. Overall, a very disappointing trip. Also, what is up with fortune cookies on the way out? Not okay, Big Bowl. "

Big Bowl is a fun environment to
eat in. We were 2 adults and 4 children. The noise level is good for kids. We were there on Mother's day evening and the food was slow and when it did arrive, mine was cold. I ordered off the menu and the rest of my party did the build your own deal. Maybe it was a timing thing. Although mine was not the perfect temperature, it was very good. That wouldn't stop me from returning. All in all a nice night."

I can always count on great food
and service at Big Bowl. Wish they would bring back the old style of egg rolls but other than that, great experience. I will be back. "

We recently went to Big Bowl in
Rosedale Mall for lunch on a Sunday. It wasn't too busy where we wouldn't be seated (making a reservation on opentable really helped-took 2 minutes on my phone). We sat down and had a great service from the waitress. My husband and I always get the stirfry bar and have never been in satisfied! The couple we were with ordered the same thing but one piece of chicken wasn't done. It wasn't the end of the world so we let them know and they remade it! They took it off the bill and gave all of us free dessert! We will always consider this restaurant high I our list I go-to places! Highly recommend Big Bowl to anyone I know!"

Love the food. No complaints about
that and the server was great. The frustrating part of this experience is that we had a reservation. We got there and we were given a buzzer since they needed to clear a table. No big deal, we'll get a drink at the bar. We were buzzed right away and brought to a table with 2 chairs, the reservation was for 4. They eventually brought 2 chairs over and stuck us right up to the noisy kitchen. This wouldn't have been so annoying, but I was noticing that groups of 2 were being seated in nice roomy booths and some obviously didn't have reservations. It was like we were being penalized for planning ahead of time. Next time my reservation will include a note that we want a booth."

great gluten free menu with a nice
selection of entrees"

Big Bowl is a slightly
above-average asian-themed restaurant, which sits in a long row of average suburban restaurants at the east end of the Roseville shopping mall. The summer rolls are fresh and quite good; and the paired down cocktail list includes a couple of good drinks. The fish lettuce wraps, in contrast, come with deep fried walleye nuggets that are tough and likely came from the freezer. The orange chicken is greasy and the chicken was soggy from too much orange sauce. If the choices are Applebees, Macaroni Grill or Big Bowl, then Big Bowl is a decent option. But if you have an extra 10 minutes and want asian food, go to Rainbow Chinese at 28th and Nicollet or True Thai on East Franklin -- two of the better places in town."

We had a night out with our group
of 10 friends and choose big bowl rosedale 'cause of their awesome food. The service was great. Our server Johanna was awesome and was able to accommodate our special meal requests for all the members. She refilled the drinks promptly and was quick to add our new requests throughout the meal time. I've been dining in Big bowl since 2009 and this was one of the best times i've had with a group of 10. Great place to go...!!!"

They have them, and they are quite
good. Can be noisy."

Great food and service! The server
noticed it was someone's birthdays while checking ID's, before we had a chance to inform her what we were celebrating - it was a great personal touch. She offered a birthday dessert at the end and really made sure the night was special."
Dined on 3/21/2014
Food has changed an is mediocre at
bset...a lot of rice and a lot of uncooked scallions in both dishes...filler?? I probably will not be returning to Big Bowl.The pot stickers were fabulous, but everything else very disappointing. It seemed like a fair amount of money for a mediocre meal."
Dined on 3/7/2014
I met my friend at Big Bowl for
lunch. Our server was fabulous- even brought us a dish that had been made by mistake. It was so good- I now have another menu favorite. Food is fresh, hot, and the best Thai food I've ever had. Pad Thai can't be beat. Will be a customer of theirs as long as they're there!"
Dined on 2/14/2014
Open Table is absolutely essential
on weekend nights. At the time we went in, the wait without a reservation was 60-90 minutes and many people were not going to wait. The service is excellent, despite the fact that the restaurant was completely full. Reasonably priced, varied choices of well-prepared Asian food."

Food is always great and I did
bring my wife and older kids there for My wife's birthday and this will now be an annual destination for her birthday."

I was pleased as this is the
millionth time I have eaten at Big Bowl and everything seemed to be in alignment. From the moment we walked in the door till the time we left. the greeters were very nice, the server took pretty good care of us and the food was wonderful. the only thing I could really ask for is that the food temp upon delivery to the table be hotter. my food was a little on the warm side, but tasted great."
Dined on 2/19/2014
This just seems to be a great spot
to meet friends at for a casual, but tasty meal. The drinks are good, and the wine list variable enough. Their ginger-drinks are very tasty. Food is consistent from visit to visit so if you have a fave there, you'll be able to enjoy it over and over. You can keep it quite healthy if you watch the sauces, too. All around good value spot."
Dined on 2/22/2014
This is our favorite Friday
evening spot. The food is reliably good & service is quick. There is usually quite a long wait for a table unless you make a reservation. They decor is casual & cozy. We love the chicken/peanut egg rolls. I usually do the stir fry bar so I can experiment with various veggies. Lots of families, so it can be noisy."

My wife and I had so much fun.
They have great alturnatives for people with diabetes. We both had a blast."

I Love Big Bowl's originality and
food quality. Thgeir portion size is also a good bang for the buck. But and there is always a but,,, a good wait person can make or break any resturant, on my first vist she was over the top with suggestions, funny, sand made many helpful suggestions. The second visit which I brought back my family to celebrate my grand daughters 15 Golden Birthday our wait staff was good but lack the warmth and the suggestions and friendliness. As my Father use to say a little friendliness can go a long way... She could of uses a little more of it. It would of made it a better experience for all."

The stir fry is to die for....
Leave the menu alone. :-) seriously though... The menu is great but the stir fry is killer."

This was our first time to Big
Bowl. The recommendations our waitress gave us REALLY helped us make informed decisions, and added to the overall impression of the restaurant. I had heard that the food was excellent, and our waitress did not disappoint in her level of service, especially with it being Valentine's Day to boot. I highly recommend this place for any lunch/dinner."
Dined on 2/14/2014
the food was very good as usual.
We were lucky enough to have a server that day who took great care in what we ordered and how we would like it prepared.. made for a fun lunch with my friends"

Service was improved over our last
visit several months ago. The food was good. My only disappointment was the very small portion of tofu in my stir fry, but that seems to be the norm with stir fry bar creations--small protein portions."

Good food a little spendy for
lunch. Do not get a table near the kitchen. Very loud and very difficult to hold a conversation. Staff constantly running past our table and bumped into our chairs a few different times. Not a good spot to seat people."
Dined on 1/25/2014
Big Bowl is a real gem - it's a
place where we can take our school-age children and everyone is happy with the menu options. Big Bowl has kid-friendly menu items, they are not the usual fare of chicken nuggets and fries. Excellent customer service as well makes this a real favorite for our family."
Dined on 1/25/2014
My waitress was great. I had come
there to have a certain item that was on the menu but there were out of it. So the waitress explained that they only make a certain amount for the day. So I ordered another dish and it was pretty good. My mate had ordered a chicken and rice dish. And as he was eating it there was about the size of a quarter of foil paper in his food. Gsh. When I told my waitress the manager came over and showed sympathy to what had happened and had taken care of the bill. And although we had that experience I still tipped my waitress because she was really nice."

Love the Big Bowl in The Rosedale
Mall. I always do the stir-fry bar. They have a great assortment of fresh and local vegetables. If you love ginger, try their fresh ginger ale."

Perfect service for Busy New
Year's Eve. Food quality superb! Enjoyable experience, except background music poor quality & loud! Will return with other friends & family if food & service continue with this high quality. Want more ? OPEN table lost reservation. Not sure I would depend on their service Again. We were seated as soon as booth opened up. Very cordial staff. Suggestions for new diner excellent!"

Was our anniversary & requested a
special table for 5 on our reservation. Table was awful, smack dab in middle of the rest & awful noise level with clear view of the mall. Super disappointed & service was really inattentive. Never refilled waters, had to practically hunt her down to get something. Had an out of town guest on our 25th anniversary & it was really disappointing!!"

Good choices, gluten free menu was
fine. Tasty food, ginger drinks are delicious"
Dined on 12/26/2013
Our appetizer was the chicken
wraps and they were very good. It was our entrees we were disappointed with. My son ordered the orange chicken, he is not a fan of rice so had just the chicken. The portion was small enough that he was hungry again when we got home. The chicken was orange enough that he never wants to eat orange chicken again. I had the pad Thai with chicken and there was almost ZERO flavor, tasteless, dry, & disappointing. My daughter tried a stir fry bowl, it was ok but nothing to boast about. Despite the food, the remainder of the experience was good. We were welcomed with a smile & immediate seating (we were late) our server was very nice, friendly, helpful, & smiling. She did a great job of checking in with us often."
