The food was mediocre. It is sort of a reminder of Chinese restaurants where the food is cooking all day and they simply dip the ladle in and throw it on the plate. It used to be better but maybe with the virus they have had to change their methods of cooking. It was quiet because nobody was there.

Though the prices have gone up a bit (and that's probably understandable during COVID), the food was fabulous as always. We'd love lunch sized portions!

We prefer the lunch menu with a bit smaller portions and cheaper prices. The portions were a bit large for lunchtime. We also miss a few of the menu items but that's no big deal. Service was a bit slower than what we're used to.

Very good service and as always great food. The only disappointment was if you wanted sesame or orange chicken and wanted vegetables you had to buy a vegetable pack on the side. I don’t ever remember doing that

I was seriously underwhelmed. For years, my husband and I would have a meal where we would order some of your awesome cocktails, and just split a bunch of great appetizers for our meal. We knew that the appetizer menu had been somewhat diminished, even before COVID, so we planned on each of us ordering an entree, and splitting an appetizer. When we arrived, we were seated right away, but immediately realized that the great cocktails were no longer available, of course, due to COVID! And that upon ordering our entrees, we couldn't get FUN noodles, of course, because of COVID! Me and the other woman in attendance, the wife of my husband's friend, ordered the same thing as me, Kung Pao. Even though the online menu touted the dish with green beans and spinach (the main reason I ordered it), when it arrived, her dish and mine, there was NO green beans. At that point, I had given up having any great expectations, so didn't complain or try to send anything back. Recently, I had eaten at two of your Rosedale Mall competitors, and was very pleased with our experience, and we had NONE of these issues. Conclusion: Until Covid is over, if we go out to eat at Rosedale, we will be going to Crave, Baldamar, or Granite City, but we will NOT be coming back to Big Bowl . . .

We miss the lunch menu as the supper menu is a bit expensive for lunch. We spent with tip $52 which is too much. Portions were too big for lunch. Unnecessary for a mid day meal. Plus the food wasn't prepared to our standards.

We love eating at Big Bowl and appreciate it being open even though very few customers were in the restaurant. Even when it is busy, it is a great place.

Price is too high for lunch - $45. They listed a lunch price outside the restaurant. But, the menus we were given only had dinner prices.

We love to be able to choose our vegetables for the stir fry. However this was not an option with the COVID19 situation. I totally get this. However, they REALLY need to offer a slip to fill out allowing us to choose our items. Without this option I don't think I will be coming back.

Very nice made from scratch Americanized Chinese/Thai food. We've never had a dish that wasn't excellent tasting here. The ginger cocktails are very nice and go well with the food.

Went here for lunch with friends. The server was helpful in making a decision on what to have. I decided on a noodle bowl with wonton soup. Very tasty! The meal portion was enough to bring home leftovers!

The sauce served over the chicken dumplings was too salty otherwise the dish was yummy. I suggest ordering the sauce on the side. Love this place.

Being served a Valentine’s Day dinner with plastic cups wasn’t that flattering. We were the only table around us with plastic cups so I don’t know why ??? Going here for special occasions is just a turn off. Server also said she was getting our check before my significant other was finished with their meal. Food is good but sometimes the service is hit or miss.
