We met friends at Big Bowl and were very disappointed at a place where we always have been pleased in the past. The food was not as good as it has been, I had the spicy sichuan beef and it was so hot as to be almost inedible. My husband had the ginger sea scallops and shrimp, which was supposed... More

I have been here twice. Once with my team and once with friends. On both occasions, I found the food to be good. On my last visit though we found a hair strand in my food and the waiter did not get me the right entree on the first go. However, they were quick to replace the order with what... More

We went to Big Bowl for lunch because it was opposite our hotel. We were brought to our table by their friendly staff. Our order of 2 soups and seafood pad thai (white noodle) came promptly. The soup is hot and tasty. Surprisingly they were not salty as in other places. The pad thai had a lot of shrimps. There... More

Located near Woodfield Shopping Mall, this restaurant is unique. We sat outside and ordered regular meals, brought to us by a good server. Other guests got bowls, got them filled, and then ate. We saw that process as we passed through the inside dining room. Good food, clean and friendly.

This restaurant is part of the Lettuce Entertain You chain, and it doesn't disappoint. You have quite an assortment of foods from which to choose on the menu, or you can go to the bar and choose the foods you would like to have stir-fried. Very busy atmosphere, and delicious meals.
