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 always stop here while in the Cities; had the Panang Curry Chicken. The coconut tapioca pudding is sooo good! Great service as always.

Big Bowl is my go to since I have had to go GF. The Panang Curry is amazing, and never disappoints. They have a decent size GF menu and are very careful to keep things separate if you are with a big group. I only wish there was one closer to home, but it is worth the drive!

Being vegetarians, we appreciated the make your own Asian bowl opportunity afforded at Big Bowl. We selected all the veggies that went into our bowl. Veggies were plentiful and extremely fresh. Also, we had an option of adding tofu and choosing among three different sauces for our dinner. Our Asian bowls were so delicious that we went back a second... More

I was pleasantly surprised. I did not know this chain and had read mixed reviews. The food was great (though maybe a bit too much in the plate :)). Since I was staying at the Westin, it is very convenient (and a pleasant walk through the fancy mall). The staff were all very pleasant and attentive. Great value.

This is a desired local haunt so is busy in the evenings. Went with my adult son. We did not have a reservation but were offered seating right away in the "bar area" at a high top table. Had quick service from the bar tender and enjoyed sitting in the area. You can order dishes from the menu or select... More

This is a very lively restaurant in a mall. We were visiting Minneapolis over the long weekend and decided to try this restsurant. They have a good selection for vegetarians. Our server was very helpful in guiding us to order dishes which would not have any animal products or fish oil. We were able to try variety of dishes and... More

Order was incorrect two days in a row, food quality has gone down, on separate days they had to redo our order and never once did a manager stop over to apologize. We order shrimp the gave us chicken, my wife ask for brown rice in fact the waitress suggest this rice but service her white rice. Just poor service... More

My family and I have been regulars at Big Bowl for over a decade. This had been a favorite restaurant which we used to recommend and we have celebrated many family occasions here as the fresh food and good service always drew us back. We noticed the food quality, taste and service seemed to be declining over the past few... More

This is my son's favorite restaurant and for good reason! I've read a lot of bad reviews but we had a great experience. Food was hot and delicious and our server was on top of everything. No complaints!
