Our group of 12 ate at Red Bowl during Elon's family weekend. It was incredibly busy, but our waitress handled it well and our drinks and appetizers came out quickly. Everything went downhill from there. After everyone was served their entrees except for me, I was told "It will be out soon." I waited five minutes and then asked another... More

I have the Blues because we don't have a Red Bowl in our area! Always crowded, but well worth a short wait. Their service is quick and their food is excellent. If you love sushi, their selection is great and so are the prices.

We are Elon alumni who live nearby in Greensboro and have eaten at Red Bowl many time when visiting Elon. The variety of Asian food here is a nice change of pace from what is available in the Elon/Burlington area. Great for lunch or dinner. Full bar and great service!

We requested a Tuna item that was off-menu. The bartender/server and kitchen were very accommodating. We ordered other sushi as well. Everything was delicious! Our tummys and taste-buds were so happy!

We stopped in here for lunch thinking it was going to be good ( passed by here on a Friday night and it was packed).... but boy were we wrong. My mom and I both order the hibachi chicken stir fry with onions, carrots, and white rice. You would think it would be difficult to mess this up but they... More

I wanted to like it a lot. Great idea and was busy. Food came really fast. Scallops had no flavor. IPA beer was a great deal!

I love this place. It is a more up scale place than the average what I call Cheap Chinese. It is a nice place to eat but not overly so that you feel uncomfortable or under dressed. They offer a wide variety of Asian food. They have great lettuce wraps, sushi, dumplings, wontons, soups, main dishes, etc. It is all... More

I stopped in at 4 pm to get some sushi to go. I will say that the sushi was not good! The avocado had started to turn brown even though I had put it in the refrigerator like I always do because I would eat dinner until about 2am. The rice was falling off the wrap and I got charged... More

For the past 6 years the Red Bowl in Burlington is our 'go to' restaurant. My wife and I drive the 25 miles from our home near Chapel Hill and Durham to eat at the Red Bowl whenever we realize that we haven't had a good dining experience recently or when we have family or other guests coming to town...

My son raved about this place when I came up to visit one weekend and truly it did not disappoint. Everything was fresh and delicious and I look forward to going back!
