8:30 on a sunday is not the optimal time to go. Salad bar was empty
Lots of food was out on the bar with no one refilling it. Normally have a good experience there, this time was poor.

Server was nice but table maintenance was severely lacking, empty soup and salad plates were left on the table the entire meal. They were still there after desert was served. There was very little room left on the table and it was not busy. The server came by at least 6 times and left empty handed each time.

Used to be my favorite restaurant ever! But the new cooks seem very rushed to cook each bowl and my food was not cooked long enough. I grabbed eggs for my stir fry and they didnt even cook my eggs they mixed the runny yoke with my food. Also they dropped a lot of my husbands food by trying to fit it all on one plate instead of two like they normally do. Our last 2 visits were like this and we decided to give it another chance.. our server was great.

We went back after a 6 year hiatus because we thought it might be better. It wasn't. The salad bar is nothing much. One soup was watered down and the other was too spicy. You wait in line like cattle for someone to stir fry the raw bowl of food you've been holding for 10 mins. Then you pay over $35 for all that!? UGH!
I don't see why this place is so popular.

We had a BD’s in Orlando but it closed, we really liked it and miss it. We were traveling home from Tampa and found out this was the only location in Florida. It was only about 10 minutes off of I-4 which was totally worth it. The selection of food and sauces is great. Fill your bowl and watch them cook it. It is plenty of food and you are very satisfied. Great value. I will be stopping there again. And you can go shopping or get yogurt after your meal.

Everything was great except for how busy it was, but it was a Saturday night so that is understandable. When we first got there the seater was clearly overwhelmed and was getting snappy with everyone who was waiting for a table as well as the servers who were trying to help her (she had tons of people waiting and lots of open tables but she was having trouble figuring out how to assign everyone). Other than that everything was wonderful! LOVE THIS PLACE!

Always fresh and good supply of food. You can experiment and make creations your own way and do the unlimited bowl option so if you create something you didn't quite like you can try again with different sauces and powders to find a combo that's good for you. My son and I love it and we have been often enough where we know just what sauces are our fav's!!

My family celebrated our daughter's birthday. Everyone was able to get exactly what they liked to eat, cooked and seasoned the way they wanted. Our waitress was wonderful. She brought plenty of napkins, forks, bowls, drinks and completely met all our dining needs. The cooks made a big deal over our daughter, made her a foil hat and had everyone sing "Happy Birthday" to her. We had a great time and will definitely go back again!!

The food from the grill is really good and the cooks are excellent! The waiter was slow, took a long time to bring me more bowls but was quick to drop off the check while I was getting my 2nd bowl. The rice bowls are only filled half way which means more waiting for refills. I spend more time waiting than eating and had to take most of it home because the rest of my party was about to leave and I hadn't even gotten my 2nd bowl cooked yet.

I’ve always loved this restaurant. I almost cried when they closed a few years back. The alcoholic beverages are strong and reasonably priced. There is usually a wait so I’d recommend making a reservation at dinner time. You can’t go wrong with all the meats, veggies, and sauces!

Sauce with sauce and seasoning. Use a lot of both because nothing is seasoned ahead of you selecting your ingredients. Otherwise it just tastes like grilled food. Plenty of options to put in the bowl so eating clean is easy. Ask for a second bowl to stack up and cook to take home for a few of dollars more. The chicken soup was very good also.
