Chinese
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.

Some of the best Big Bowl food we’ve had! Great job separating customers as well. Very good experience and fabulous meal.

I forgot how good Big Bowl is!! I cannot get enough of their yellow curry with chicken- it gives me enough for 3 meals! Food was fresh and came quickly, service was great and seating was spaced adequately apart so we all felt very safe. We'll be back again soon!

The food was delicious. Our waiter was very patient with us and let us take our time. Cauliflower rice was delicious! Thanks for being friendly for people who can’t eat gluten!

Great fresh food and generous servings. The chicken cashew was slight on cashews but spicy flavored, and the panang curry chicken was flavorful with the jasmine rice. Our favorite is the combination order of potstickers. Missing from our dining experience was the charm of the unique dishware they used in past years. The restaurant was socially distanced and well wiped down and the waitress was helpful and friendly.

Not many diners on a Sunday night. Lots of take out going on. Server was attentive and the food was quite good. First time there and during covid so probably not the best example of ambience.

My kung pao chicken entree didn't seem fresh, and it was very salty. Almost like it was the end of the batch. For what we got, I thought $50 for lunch was expensive.

Service was A+. Waitstaff could pick
up on my 8 year old’s cues that he didn’t love his meal. He wouldn’t accept the substitution she generously offered, so she comped his meal without request.

Everything was great once we had ordered.

This was a lunchtime meal, but the lighting was set for romantic anonymity and we were seated just behind the hostess station, not in a dark corner! We had to use the flashlight feature on our phones to be able to read the menu. It didn’t help that the menu’s text was also quite small.

Food was great and we all loved our choices as well as tasting each other’s food.

Great experience. Although drinks came right before our meal came. Would have been nice to get our drinks for 10” or so before the food arrives. We ordered drinks and our meal at the same time. Otherwise great experience as always.

Lunch meeting. Very few customers in empty quiet mall. No energy in ambience. Service was good, almost too good as interrupted conversation instead of adjusting to customers. Available for service as Very few other customers to serve. Did temperature scan on wrist before admitting. Food portions are large - big bowls - and tasty.

The restaurant was clean and the Covid-19 check-in (temp check) added a nice layer of security. However, one dish came out with undercooked chicken- after notifying our server, he replaced it with a fresh order and took the plate off our bill, which was appreciated.

I always recommend BB as meeting place. Out of town guests really enjoyed yesterday’s lunch. We ate on patio so noise was not at issue. The food was good; menu limited and missing my favorite chicken satay skewers. Nice waitress. Slow to clear dishes....perhaps thought we were still eating.

Awesome experience! My husband and I went their to celebrate our wedding anniversary and the food was delicious, service great, and because of some issues I had on my last visit, the Manager made sure food was allergy sensitive (gluten free) and we even received complimentary desserts. Love this place!

We were a party of 4. The food was very good, fresh and delicious. I was disappointed in the dining room experience. I expected it to be more refined. Our waiter, however was wonderful, attentive and kind. We sat at a table next to the table where the staff was assembling the take-out bags. The food that came out of the kitchen looked delicious. Maybe it'd be a better experience to get a take-out bag and eat at home.
