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.

If your favorite item has been the Big Bowl Egg Rolls, be warned: they're now small and not nearly as tasty. As other reviews have noted, there have been changes recently in menu items that were long time favorites. Their massive egg rolls used to arrive on a long narrow platter sliced in two. They were absolutely the best anywhere.... More

Food: The quality of the food keeps fluctuating from being very good to very bad. In the Stir Fry, in addition to the vegetables I have wanted, sometimes I have gotten veggies which I haven't added. the Panang curry is saucy when ordered as a separate dish but the sauce kind off disappears when you order the stir fry.

This is a really nice atmosphere for the money. We really enjoyed the service and the food was great too. We went as a larger group of 8 and they treated us very promptly. Looked like it was a well known place because of the customers who had reservations. I would go back again.

Our order was mixed up... Some food served came hot, some freezing cold! Server fantastic! Very apologetic, and it's the kitchen who screwed up! Pleasant recovery on her part. Remakes on the food that was wrong/cold! While the portions have decreased, we commented on that but we are all trying to eat less and thought it helped reduce waste and... More

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
