“Really Good!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2014 via mobile

I use Trip Advisor when traveling to find restaurants and when preparing for our family trip to Chicago, I read about this restaurant (and many others). Our first night in Chicago, we were walking in the city, and we came upon the Big Bowl. Having read good reviews, we decided to try it. Our food, the atmosphere, and our server, Dion, were all really good. Our family of four ordered the potstickers, beef and noodles, a spicy chicken dish, and salmon. We would recommend this restaurant and would eat there again.

“They told me it was spicy”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 14, 2014

The waitness told me the dish I order was abit spicy. She was correct. New age asian food. You can tell everything is fresh. Quick service. Nice enviornment. Good food. We liked the place and would return but it is your typically upscale new age asian restaurant. :)

“A must eat”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

We went for lunch and got there before it got busy. I had fresh squeezed lemonade. Yum. They are also known for their home made ginger ale. We had vegetable spring rolls. Delicious. I had orange chicken and my guest had a Thai bowl. She is vegetarian and was able to get a great meal. We finished up with an orange Carmelites cheesecake to share. Go. You won't be disappointed. All meat and vegetables are organic.

“Monday Nights: Half Price Bottles of Wine!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 11, 2014 via mobile

Shared a great bottle of Malbec with a colleague for a mere $14! Pad Thai with shrimp was awesome and very generous portions. Calamari was fresh and lightly fried. Awesome! Wish I lived in Chicago to get this great Thai. You know it's good when locals and ethnic peeps frequent.

The food was good, reasonably priced. The waiter was such a professional...probably one of the best we have ever had. We absolutely recommend this restaurant.
