Chinese
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.

I love this place! Great food. Good service. They have social distancing precautions and throw away menus, so we felt safe. Can't beat them for Thai food.

The food was wonderful but I thought the service was lacking because I was thirsty and was out of water and didn't get asked if I needed a refill until our server handed us our check. Also it was my mother's birthday and it was nice that our host wished her a Happy Birthday but I thought she might get a treat or at least ask if we wanted desert. I would recommend this place for a casual lunch or dinner but not a special occasion.

I love Big Bowl! Would recommend their pad thai to anyone! Stir fry is also amazing but better when covid isn’t a thing.

Big Bowl was one of our regulars before the pandemic. We were happy we could go in, sit down and have a good meal again. We have been there so much that the staff know our names and always greet us with a smile.

Friendly hostess,took your temperature before seating you.Waiter/bartender was informative of inquired items on the menus and poured a good cocktail for $7. Food was a great value as I couldn’t finish the portion so took it home in a nice “to go container.” Not styrofoam where entree slides around in it. Peanut egg rolls excellent and ordered 2 to go. ....I will be back in February.

Always amazing food, this is not your typical Asian/Thai food place. The quality is consistent every time and of high quality. So many delicious items on the menu, something for everyone or create your own.

We love Big Bowl no matter what but our server yesterday, I don't know her name, was outstanding. It was as though she could read our minds with what we wanted or needed. Just great and also great to dine out. Love the hostess as well. I don't know her name either and I should, she's been there forever and always, always just the best. Thank you.
