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.

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.

The staff members at the restaurant were very attentive and professional. They made sure we had the best wedding reception experience at their restaurant. The food presentation was really great. The food was wonderful tasting. I do recommend Big Bowl for any special event or occasion.

Limited menu, hubby and myself found food we liked
He had chicken pad tai, I had yellow curry chicken with veggies portions were large for lunch next day. We are both lettuce entertain you members and both had our birthday rewards so dinner for the two of us was just the tip!

We understand things are different in the age of COVID, but the limited menu was tremendously disappointing, including the removal of riced cauliflower, the only low-carb option. The rest of our food was “ok”. Very unlike our normal Big Bowl experiences over the years where it’s generally outstanding.

It was a slow time of the day, but the restaurant isn't busy because people are reticent to eat out with CoVid. I enjoyed my food and and tried a non-alcholic drink - homemade ginger ale. It was delicious. The service was excellent and friendly.

I had never been here before. My friend had.
She said the food did not taste the same at all. I noticed that the cold peanut pasta salad (this is not the formal name...) did not taste peanuty at all.

Also, service seemed slower than I would have expected.
