Big Bowl - Edina

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.

    We live in another state now and we were excited to revisit one of our favorite restaurants we used to frequent. Food was (almost) as outstanding ding as we remember but the service was just ok and holy expensive! If we still lived locally we wouldn't be able to return as often as we used to because it's just too expensive now.

    Food was good but service was not so great. Dirty plates left on table after appetizer and finally at the end of my meal he asked if I needed more tea. Not what I am used to from this restaurant.

    The Old Fashions were made with a pinch of brown sugar and plenty of Knob Creek Rye. A good choice. Both meals were too much but made for awesome New Year's Day hangover "soul" food.

    The food and service are consistently good at Big Bowl. There is no bad seat in the house; however, the main room is open and gets quite loud. This is not the atmosphere for an intimate dinner, unless you reserve a table in the smaller alcove.

    Was sat right away with a reservation then never had a wait staff. Tried to flag someone down but was treated as if it was an inconvenience. Then the manager finally figured out what happened and tried to take care of us. Issue was we had no wait staff so no water refills etc. won’t be back!

    The overall mall had a malfunction of its security alarm which went off during our entire meal. It was loud and disruptive. Unfortunate, but overall the servers took it in stride and dinner was not interrupted.

    While I like Big Bowl, I am extremely disappointed that they have done away with their vegetable bar that allows you to select your own vegetables. There is much less option now in the vegetables. A BIG loss to your customers!

    The food is good but portions are small for the cost. We had a nice server but she was not attentive and was forgetful. Had to ask for things we’d requested or ordered multiple times. She also wasn’t completely knowledgeable of the restaurants beverages. The Ridgedale location is much better.

    Been a while since I dined at the restaurant rather than delivery. I was surprised although understood why they closed the 'make your own bowl'. Food quality has gone from good to fair i.e. potsticker's were generic tasting and presented with a few sauces...now they come in a bowl with a puddle of teriyaki. In sum, just another Asian restaurant and would rather support the local family owned establishments.

    The food was delicious. BUT So sad that this restaurant has gone so downhill. They changed the lighting, and it has ruined the ambiance. It’s bright and you see how dirty the restaurant is. Also, they started CLEANING THE FLOOR at 8:30pm! It was ridiculous. Made us feel unwelcome and it was unappetizing. Missing the old Big Bowl.

    I LOVE this restaurant & their food. It was pretty empty (it WAS Monday, and sort of early) and you can’t “pick your own veggies” (like we used to) due to Covid. Food was still delicious, and wait staff was great, ambiance also wonderful, just different due to Covid restrictions.

    the server was very inattentive and kept forgetting to deliver things asked for (water please!) most of the food options were fried - very little 'health conscious' options - the chicken salad tasted/smelled fishy - as if there were anchovies in it; the szezuan beans appetizer was also friend - not wok cooked - and greasy I tried the monthly special - it was HORRIBLE - the manager was gracious enough to credit me & offer something else - however by that time we had already been there an hour & I had to get back to work will not be returning

    I have gone to big bowl for years. I loved their make your own stirfry. They have since taken that away, which is disappointing, but if offered to let people customize the chef‘s choice, stir Fry. This time what I received was so very skimpy I honestly couldn’t even believe it. For $22 I expect to have plenty of chicken and vegetables which cost very little but instead I got mostly rice and a little bit of noodles on the side with very little vegetables. It was genuinely disappointing, and I felt like I just did not get even close to what I used to get over the years and for a price that’s six dollars higher than what I used to pay.

    It felt like you may have been under staffed or have new workers. It took forever to get our check we flagged down as hostess to get us our check so we could leave. It may just have been a very busy time.

    Service was excellent. Had chef's choice stir fry with sichuan sauce. It is supposed to be spicy (hence the pepper next to it on the menu), but dish was very mild. I've had this at different Big Bowl locations and it has always been appropriately hot/spicy. I was with a group of friends and didn't want to seem 'picky' so just let it go and didn't mention anything to our server. Overall would still recommend this restaurant.
