About Big Bowl - Edina
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.

Big Bowl - Edina Ratings and Reviews
The kitchen was unable to get my order correct. No dressing - salad was drenched. No tomato; tons of tomatoes. They did bring dressing on the side but it wasn’t needed. Drinks were flavorless and mostly seltzer. Wasn’t just me. All around us, food was going back to be redone. I only have so much time so I made do. Maybe it was an off night. They are the squally better than this.
Great Service and Good Food. Our server was very knowledgeable of the menu and made sure what i ordered was safe for me . She was very happy and outgoing. She was very attentive. Our food was delicious and all 4 of us were very happy with our dinner. It came out in a timley manner and without issue. 2 of our table did the "Stir fry bar" where you go pick your own fixings and they were very happy with outcome. All around good experience. Will return.
As vegetarians, we like Big Bowl. In this case, we were exceptionally impressed by our waitress, and the food. Our waitress was well informed on the sauces without animal products, and found out what was in the ones that we questioned the content on. We ordered the summer rolls, green beans, and orange chicken with tofu substituting for the chicken. Everything was great -- and I appreciated that you had an n/a beer on the menu since I am a Buddhist and don't drink -- except for the music, which we found loud and obnoxious. Not sure where to sit to get away from it, but it would be nice if you chose music more suited to dining rather than a concert venue and lowered the volume so you don't have to shout. Otherwise the experience was great.
We ordered our usual sesame chicken and it was a disappointment. It was mostly flour coating on many of the chocken pieces. The portion sizesz seemed smaller than I recall, as Imusually would take a box home with leftovers--not this time. The jasmine roce was fine.
Service was friendly and fast.
The triple chocolate brownie dessert we shared was a hit with my 8 year old grandson, and with me too.
The entire place was below standards when it comes to cleanliness. From the booth we were seated in, to the floors throughout the restaurant, to the clogged toilet in the ladies bathroom. I was not very interested in eating my meal after seeing how unkempt the entire space was.
For only the second time since this restaurant opened, we had a bad experience in every way, including the service and the food.
Our server was totally inattentive to our needs, making us wait an inordinate amount of time for everything - to take our orders, to bring us our slips for the stir fry bar, to bring us refills for our beverages (we finally gave up on them), to bringing us the check.
As usual, we ordered the stir fry bar and chose our own vegetables. When our meals came they were tasteless and the crispy chicken was so over fried it was like eating little strips of cardboard.
We eat at Big Bowl at least twice per month and, again, this was only our second bad experience we’ve had. However, it was bad enough that we won’t rush back
Each year at the time of my Daughter's birthday, we choose a mall to shop (this time Southdale) I had eaten at Big Bowl and knew the food was excellent, and the location worked out perfectly for a birthday lunch!
Our server was fabulous and created the very best Shanghai Mules! Our food was served warm and excellent! We had a wonderful lunch together, thank you to the restaurant and David our server.
We will eat at Big Bowl again, as will my daughter with her family and friends!
