Stopped in for lunch and LOVED the friendly quick service with a smile.
Good menu with lots of choices all in a fun atmosphere. The location is great easy to get to and in the hub of a busy district of shopping and dining. Had some wonderful tasty dumplings and some great soup. Which arrives in nice big tureens and you will not be disappointed. The salads are wonderful as well. Absolutely stop here for a bite and they won't let you down.

this was a great find- pity we only discovered it on our last night.
The food was absolutely fantastic and freshly prepared. We visited on a Monday and all bottles of wine were half price. There seems to be different promotions each night. Our waiter was very attentive and courteous- we had the best meal of our trip here.

Ate at the Big Bowl recently and had a good meal. The stir fry's are tasty and you can go to the stir fry bar and choose all of your vegetables from the vast selection. Nice friendly service as well!

Great service from beginning to end. The menu is quite extensive which personally I really really appreciate because everyone get to eat good. Portions and flavours are as expected, totally consistent to the concept. The prices are great and it is probably in the best location in Chicago if you are a visitor!

Two thumbs up for this Great Asian!

The food was good here, and the atmosphere is nice too. Good portions for the money. And it's so convenient. You might want to plan for a bit more time than fast food though.
