Ordered three dishes carry out on 9/3/20. Paid $63. They mix the entre and the rice to make it look like a normal portion. Most asian restaurants put the rice in a separate container. Nevertheless it was a very small serving in each dish mixed...with a large portion of rice/noodles. Hardly had any meat in any of the tree dishes. It was mostly noodles and rice. Extremely disappointed. Felt ripped off. Will not be ordering there again.More

Went with work team for lunch and had the Kung Pao beef and it was great. The server recommended the peanuts in addition and that was a spot on addition. Service was good and this really hit the spot.

Went to big bowl for lunch. They looked to have plenty of staff just standing around while we waited at the host stand. The host came up and seated us and said she would bring us menus after she did a to go order then...forgot. Once seated a guy completely flustered came over went to tell us the specials but then wasn’t completely sure. We ordered the blueberry bourbon splash and cucumber chiller for drinks along with dumplings for an appetizer. Drinks came we ordered food and everything came out at once which is fine if that’s how your kitchen runs but it is nice when a restaurant gives you a heads up on that. All in all the food was good. The pad Thai was sweet over spicy which we were not huge fans of. The restaurant had lunch specials so the prices were good. A place to stop if your fine with mediocre food and service.More

Big Bowl's Chicken and Peanut Egg rolls are the best. Main dishes are made with fresh ingredients - the Chicken Pad Thai was wonderful.

We have been coming to Big Bowl for many years. The custom-made stir fry is delicious, with many options to choose from. The menu is extensive, and we've not been disappointed until last night. The Kung Pao stir fry with chicken was excellent and enough...for 2 meals. My wife's shrimp dish was also very good, but her fried rice was tasteless. The portions are large. Our server, Sisi, did a terrible job! She gave my wife wrong information and was ill-informed about the Lettuce Entertain You rewards program features. She was a fairly new employee, and we tried to be understanding. However, she didn't ask for help until it was too late. The manager tired to make up for her mistakes by comping us one of our meals and replacing the fried rice with noodles. Thank you! We will go back, but request a different server,More

First of all, the service here, is fantastic. Our server, Kathryn, was amazing and was so kind and sweet to my 93-year-old mother, just a really genuine and amazing person. But the entire staff here is great, really a testament to the management here. The...food, of course, is always wonderful and fresh. We had a variety of items and they were all delicious! Panang curry, Mongolian beef, Orange chicken, potstickers, it was all wonderful. We will definitely be back and it's nice that they accept reservations and are wheelchair accessible. Really great place, food, and service. A+More
