Description: 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 should begin by saying that we have been eating at Big Bowl since it opened years ago. Until just this week we would have rated it among our favorite restaurants for eat-in and takeout. However, when we placed a big takeout order two nights ago we were very disappointed when we returned home to find that the entrees were... More

My meal was so salty I could barely eat any of it. Looking back, I should have sent it back to be redone. And the place was like a factory.

It's hard to find a restaurant with a private room to accommodate 15-20 people without running into a high minimum purchase or a costly room fee; but Big Bowl was very reasonable in that regard. The food was all very good with large portions (lots of take-home bags) and our server was excellent -- helpful, accurate and attentive but not... More

This is hands down one of the best restaurants we've eaten at in Minnesota, and we lived in PR of China so we have a little bias. The tofu is always excellent and the pad Thai is cooked to perfection. The mint-ginger tea is our favorite tea there. You just can't find a better place and in a mall none... More

I went with my wife and enjoyed the veggie bowl grilled with all exotic vegetables and tofu. We tried this with fried rice and green curry sauce. Amazing and delicious. Reminds me of East.

This place has a ton of different options for meals. They are all generally average. Thats not a bad thing, mind you, but nothing stands out.

This restaurant has exactly what diners should be looking for - the freshest ingredients cooked to perfection! The menu is extensive, but the best bet is to create your own stir fry! By selecting your vegetables, sauce and protein you are guaranteed the best stir fry bowl you've ever tasted! No more picking through the vegetables you don't care for... More
