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.

The food was as usual very good but the service was very slow. And the server forgot to give us water. But overall it is still one of my favorite restaurants.

We had family visiting from out of town and they always request going to Big Bowl. Milton is the best and we always feel at home when we’re with him.

We all had a throughly good time and very much enjoyed our meals. Big Bowl serves Americanized Asian foods which I really like. The fact that they offer cauliflower rice as an option is great.

It was my mother's Birthday and we have come to Big Bowl the past few years with my family. It was extremely disappointing! We had a party of 6 and all of us feel like we got ripped off! Everyone's portions were extremely small and then it did not taste that great on top of it. Luckily our server was good, but more than likely will not be coming back.

Always a good meal for a reasonable price. Love their specialties, the “Bowl” and “Pad Thai”. Service was friendly.

We've been there many times and will continue to go. The service this last trip was way below what we have had there before. I'm sure it was a one-time thing. The guy was not friendly at all and was completely inattentive. For example, we ordered two appetizers and I saw them go in the window. The waiter walked by them not less then four times and never brought them out. We had to ask someone to get them for us. They tasted great and all, it was like pulling teeth to get anything from him. One water refill in the hour we were there. 7 minutes to get soy sauce. If the food wasn't so good, this would have Ben our last trip.
