Unfortunately it is just not the same post-Covid. The food was poorly cooked and under-seasoned. We had to track our server down multiple times.
The clearance of the dirty empty plates on the table should be removed ASAP.
They are good about refilling the drinks, asking if we need anything, but a quick glance at the table to see that there are empty plates can be remove at the time.
so had never been here before, had a 25 dollar gift card. both my 2 daughters went. Service and staff was great. but our three meals were just ok. I am fan of thai and chinese food and have been to authentic restaurants. my spicy thai bowl was good, but just heat, not really any other flavors.. my daughters mongolian beef was just really salty. again, not bad. but far from good. and my daughters yellow curry was also just ok, my kids said it tasted Italian. wanted to like this place, but just another chain making blah blah toned down authentic flavors. and i get the bill and its over 65 bucks. only worth it with the gift card, we wont be going back..
Food was very good. Moderately-priced meals. We sat in the back room which had zero ambience, but our server was so kind and friendly.
Great vegetarian choices too..it's always hard to find great taste with vegetarian dishes...no matter what you order tou won't be disappointed
Went at a less busy time, but waitress seemed very rushed and food wasn’t warm when served. Food was just ok - overpriced for the quality and ambiance.
Great food at a very reasonable price. I had the Mongolian beef and it was to die for. Big tender chucks of beef and fresh vegetables. My wife had the stir fry and it was just as good. They even gave us a chocolate volcano cake for our anniversary (delicious). Can't wait to go back with the whole family.
The food is fresh and of great quality. Portion size is plentiful so either share or expect leftovers. Server was attentive filling water and drinks when needed.
This was first time eat indoors at a fully packed restaurant in over a year. We felt safe going in and out. Food was delicious as it always had been. Service from host to server was great. No one was allowed to walk around without a mask and keeping that under control was superb.
Great food and service. Will definitely be returning.
I remember Big Bowl pre pandemic... They had the stir fry bar and selections were better. This is Big Bowl lite but it was still tasty food and we enjoyed the evening despite some of the COVID-19 changes. When this is over I want to see it return tlo what it used to be.
The service was great in the beginning but tapered off at the end. Waited a bit for the check but the food made up for it! I would go back for sure.
The food was wonderful and the service was excellent. I would absolutely return for another meal in the future.
Our waiter was great. He provided us all the answers to our questions on the menu selections.
Service was amazing, food was quick, hot, fresh, & delicious! They have the best fried calamari I have ever had! Pomegranate mojito was sooo good!
Always delicious! Always get the egg rolls ; they are outstanding!
It was very busy for middle of the afternoon. Our server was ok but seemed to have a lot of tables. My stir fry was not quite cooked enough. During this pandemic I did not want to ask it to be cooked more. The teriyaki sauce was very light as well. Not as normal as I have had in the past because I get this almost every time and thus have had it more than a dozen times.
The egg roll was as good as normal. Love it.
The waitress was unbelievably rude. When she had to bring our plates of food, she dropped the plates on the table with a thud, turned away without a greeting at all. No, enjoy your meal, nothing. She never once came back to the table to ask how the food was or filled our glasses of water. Terrible Terrible service.
Great food with great service; masks were required and tables were socially distanced.
Food and service were both meh, nothing special. It feels like the last few years this place has been going down. Our last experience was ok.
An excellent restaurant for great conversations. It wasn’t too loud nor too quiet. Excellent all around!
Second time trying your restaurant and same results.
Very odd tasting food- example - the appetizer we ordered was lettuce wrap with chicken and we expected chicken not ground up mealy mess.
Should have said pieces parts with tons of hoisin sauce. Do you people ever taste your food!
Also. The menu was mouse print. Maybe your customers are very young with no taste buds and don’t mind tiny print
The food was gross. I feel like a paid $90 for rice and noodles. I went with a party of five. We ordered $90 for the food and it wasn’t enough. It was disgusting
Usually a great experience, last time disappointing. Slow service and an ingredient missing in my meal.
Our waiter (a man) was exceptional. We love BB
First meal during COVID era. Smaller menu but fills everyone’s choice
Decent food very good service
We always enjoy the food and the people are very friendly.
The staff are very hard-working and pleasant at the same time. Our server was also the bartender. He managed our table and others with grace and ease, all while manning the bar. I watched in amazement at his ability to multitask.
Food was good as it always is and every staff member brought their A-Game to serve the guests.
Thank you for giving us a fantastic experience.
I really liked the Mongolian Beef. I didn't like where we were seated...next to bar near windows. A lot of employees eating, talking and laughing.
Food is great staff are very kind. Definitely recommend this place!
Our server Hayle was amazing. Left her a very large tip. We were celebrating a few birthdays and she made it special. Food was great like normal.
Food tasted good but it could have been hotter. Drinks were over priced.
Took my niece for her 15th Birthday! Food was really good and they even special ordered my nieces food to her liking. We had a good time.
Everything was delicious as usual and we were treated very well!
Loved the place and food.. very good service and ambience.
Service was great and food was very good. However every table was full. No social distancing going on there!
Service was great! Food was fresh and hot. Thank you for a great time!
Liked the barriers between tables. Food was good.
