During a recent stay, we were looking for someplace to pick up some food and relax back at the hotel and selected this restaurant based on the reviews. There is a huge menu to choose from and our food was ready very quickly. Everything tasted great. I particularly like the steamed dumplings. Prices were very reasonable too. Just remember to... More

The cook who made my MEAT DUMPLING IN CHILI OIL(紅油抄手) can't be an Asian. The dumpling itself is fine, but the source is really weird like a mix of mexican chili with a lot of suger? Or maybe it's a specialty for students I don't know. If you are expecting something asian, just don't order this one. The congee I... More

Big Bowl has a street level sign but the actual restaurant is in the lower level. The menu is big with a wide variety of options. I ordered spring rolls and noodles with chicken. The portions were large and I enjoyed both. The space is clean, spacious and service was good.

We were visiting state college and found this restaurant. The food portions are large. We all had chicken and broccoli with white rice. It was excellent. They have a large menu with a lot of choices. We are going back to try the noodle bowl. Service was very polite. The restaurant was clean. The atmosphere was mostly college students. We... More

Visited on a reunion trip. Food was fresh, tasty, and plentiful! My husband and I both had the pork dumpling noodle soup. The dumplings were excellent, and the broth and fresh veggies gave it a wonderful flavor. Portion was huge, and value was great. The only complaint was the fact they charge you for a fountain drink and offer no... More

I'm really not a bit fan of Asian food, but a friend convinced me to try the Big Bowl Noodle House. They apparently just relocated next door to where they used to be, and the restaurant was clean, nicely appointed, and very spacious. I ordered sliced chicken with a big bowl of brown noodles, and it was quite tasty. It... More
