Using the freshest and highest quality ingredients and starting from
scratch are the only ways to authentically prepare Asian cuisine.
At Big Bowl, we make our own curries and roast our own chilies
and spices, which are ground daily to prepare a variety of our
signature dishes. Our menu features Chinese favorites like Kung
Pao Chicken, Prime Beef & Broccoli, Sweet & Sour Pineapple
Shrimp and Slow Roasted Barbecue Pork Fried Rice, along with
Thai specialties like Panang Curry Chicken, Vegetable & Tofu Pad
Thai and Red Hot Pepper Chicken Noodles. Whether its sweet or
spicy, rice or noodles, Chinese or Thai that you are craving, our
menu has it all.

Service by Rosemari was fabulous! She didnt miss a beat. Timing perfect on everything. Attention to details, perfect. We even observed her scanning her tables to see what they needed. She's a keeper! Big Bowl is lucky to have her.

We had a delicious dinner at Big Bowl when my brother, his wife, and my mother were all together. There was something appealing for everyone whose food preferences differed. Great dining experience overall!

On Friday night the restaurant was very crowded. We made reservation at 7:15Pm. Front desk staff did not seat us until 7:45 PM. This was after asking many times when will we be seated ? Food was good but the waiter was very busy to be reached and ask for what we need.

We made a reservation on Open Table but still had to wait nearly 30 minutes for our table. We weren't the only ones. Seems a reservation doesn't really mean a reservation here.

We always enjoy the food at Big Bowl. They generally have interesting specials in addition to an extensive and varied menu. Servers are knowledgeable and helpful. I only wish they had more parking close to the restaurant.

Food and service were excellent. We especially enjoy the "customized" stir fry option where we choose all of the add-ons to go with our meat-sauce-and rice selection.
