We went to Red Bowl at my son's request to celebrate his report card. On any given day, 11:00am to 6:30pm, Red Bowl has a sushi 50% off special. Some of the appetizers, including Tempura, goes for $5.00 between 4:00pm and 6:30pm. Although I do not eat sushi, my wife and children loved it. The chicken tempura was nice. Now,... More

We wanted to have Asian food and decided to give Red Bowl a try. We were seated right away. The decor is a modern take on Asian with red paper lamps. It's quite pleasing. We ordered bang bang shrimp as an appetizer and it was excellent. The vegetable spring rolls were just OK. The entree I ordered was from the... More

We go for the sushi and are never disappointed. They have happy hour 1/2 off sushi everyday, which is a treat! My husband and I leave full after 4 rolls of sushi. Quiet seating, soft light, and good service.

Staff was very pleasant. The food was average, not fantastic, but not bad. Portions were large. They did have some fun drinks. Wouldn't be my "go-to" place, but definitely ok to stop in from time to time.

I hear the service and food is not consistent, but the day we were there for lunch, both were excellent. While perhaps, not really authentic, it certainly fit the bill

Comfortable restaurant with soft jazz music, good service, and DELICIOUS food at a reasonable price. Who could ask for more? Only thing we didn't like were the bland, under-filled egg rolls that came with the meals. Give them a pass to save more room for the tasty main dishes. Glad we opted for the Chinese noodles as they were an... More

The first thing I noticed when getting seated was a guy giving a gal a shoulder rub behind the counter. Poor on-stage behavior! Look, the moment a business thinks they are good enough, and starts to allow slippage, it's the beginning of the end (like Ni Hau).

My wife and I split this dish. It was plenty for both if us. Add a hot tan and you won't break a $20 bill. If you like spicy this is a great dish for you but don't eat the red peppers.

We dine at Red Bowl last night. It used to be such a fine restaurant when they first opened it, three or four years ago. I ordered the Alaskan Sushi, it was just good. My friend started with the wonton soup. It was just a bland broth with an overcooked wonton noodle; and the accompanying fry noodles were stale. My... More

We recently found out that from 4:00 - 6:30 PM weekdays, Red Bowl has their sushi for half price. They have a large menu from which to choose. Some could even be called dessert. I especially enjoy the tropical roll which is rolled in coconut. We try to go at least every other week.
