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.

Love the stir fry bar

The menu items are very good (though remember to ask for more heat if you are from outside Minnesota originally), but it is the stir fry bar that makes Big Bowl special. That and the excellent pork and chicken potstickers. Oh, and the house made ginger ale (please bring back the Green Tea... read more

My husband and I have eaten at this Big Bowl on a few occasions. In the past, we have had a group with us, either friends or our kids. This time, it was just the two of us and we enjoyed having dinner together here. The ambiance is relaxing, casual, and fun. The food was great and consistent with past... More

Big Bowl is a wonderful Asian fusion restaurant in an upscale shopping mall - been here many times and always have the Kung Pao chicken with brown rice. Love the charred chili peppers in the dish and my table mates can't believe I actually eat them, but while a bit chewy, they are delicious. Daughter had the Thai shrimp and... More

The food that we get here is authentic Thai! I'd ordered noodles in green curry which tasted heavenly. The service is great. I'd recommend the place for lunch.

We went for lunch around 3 and had wonderful service. Our server was punctual and attentive and knew we were on a work lunch break so made sure we received our food and beverage promptly. The food was hot, fresh and fabulous. He brought us soda' s when we were only half empty. He checked back several times and sent... More

I absolutely love the food here. However the management and operations of the restaurant can be a hit or miss. While waiting for my food, the takeout person was rushing to complete everything. There were three other employees at the host stand just standing around. I I called half an hour before hand and they told me it would be... More

One of my favorite aspects of the dining here is the mongolian style menu for which they are known. You pick your raw ingredients and a sauce and they cook it up for you with the protein of your choice. It's a great restaurant for a date and you're only a short walk away from the movie theatre. Nudge nudge...
