Friendly Service - Hard to Hear

Nice food and good service. We got to the restaurant before the dinner crowd. By the time we left the place was full and there was a noticeable "din" from all the chatter. I would go back anytime but might pick a table so as to be a little closer to my dining partner. Loved the Chinese veggies... read more

This location is slipping and it shows. Gone are the days of the bright host/hostess that welcomes you and helps you to your table. Gone are the days when you could order a simple dish like fried rice with shrimp that actually isn't dried out and tasteless. This used to be one of my favorites, but they need to get... More

Kung paw chicken noodle was not supergreat, but tasty and full of flavors. However, don't think it's worth fifteen. It was take out, though. Perhaps if I dined in w friends,it'd worth it. The place seemed nice and relaxing. Staff dressed nicely and was friendly.

Really, large bowls of freshly prepared noodles and vegetables. We had three different vegetarian dishes and one was better than the other and better than the other, so we just shared. Three people, three dishes and left overs. Next time we went, two people, one bowl, no leftovers.

This is an intriguing concept. This restaurant offers both Thai and Chinese food. My wife likes Thai and I am fond of Chinese so we decided to try it. We had lunch there. We found the quality of the food to be quite good along with great service. However, we did find it a little pricy for lunch.

First, I must tell you that I'm not a huge fan of driving -- particularly in traffic. So, for me to drive out of my way to get to Big Bowl really says something. While we are yet to try something that on the menu that was mediocre, we really have this down to a science. Three words: Stir Fry... More

Whatever your occasion, this place would be great! The menu selection is adequte and the food is very tasty. I love the option of the stir fry, you go and pick your own selections and they will cook it right there for you or just order off of the menu. I have visited her with my family, friends and business... More

This was the second time I've been to Big Bowl in Schaumburg. Both times, all 4 of us were very happy with our meals and service. I had the Kung Pao chicken--spicey and tasty.
