Loved the vegan and choose your own veg options here. I had the veg thai green curry with tofu and it was well spiced and fresh. The ginger beer was fabulous. Nice bustling atmosphere with good service. Great for a casual business lunch.

They have vegan, vegetarian options and or diet restrictions. We selected our own fresh vegetables, the vegetables were fresh and crisp. The vegan appetizers are very good.
The ginger mint tea is awesome,

I have had very good food and very average food here. Noisy but pleasant atmosphere. Service has ranged from attentive and friendly to indifferent when below average food was served.

Not very authentic, but very delicious. Although Big Bowl is a franchise, the food is well-presented and fresh, and the vegetables and tofu are actually tasty. The maitre d' and waitress we had were gregarious and polite. We ordered a Thai green curry with chicken which was very spicy (it was advertised as such)---no skimping on the chilis. The pad thai was a tad sweet but nice and fluffy, not overly greasy as it sometimes can be. The appetizers: the chicken satay, the fried tofu, the calamari, were all beautifully presented and delicious. Compared to other Chinese or Thai restaurants, the prices are a tad higher, but the location can't be beat for convenience, and the atmosphere is better---dark walls and seats, splashes of crimson and red. In general it appears to be clean and well-maintained. There is an open kitchen to view the cooking.

This restaurant has a cool atmosphere and a great menu. Our server was helpful and suggested different drinks and menu items. There are fully prepared dishes as well as the make-your-own option. The appetizers were very good but our dinners were delicious. The prices are reasonable and the service was great.
