Not been here since last year and the food was as good s I remembered, Highly recommend the chicken satay and the Kung Pan chicken with brown rice. Ask for hot sauce if you want to spice it up a bit more.

My wife, daughter and I just happened upon this restaurant. We really enjoyed the fact that you can either select one of their menu items or create your own. Depending upon your appetite two people could reasonably share one create your own stir fry. I...More

Best Bowl is always a pleaser for our family. They will even specialize to meet my family's requests and do them perfectly. The Panang Curry is always a winner for me! Nice Dim Sum too!

I have eaten at this restaurant a number of times in the past. This restaurant doesn't disappoint -- food and service are always good. Two suggestions: (1) make the small booths a bit bigger; hard to juggle a winter coat and hand bag in these...More

Situated in the mall it is not bad but not special. As the name says, you get a lot of food and if you are in for quantity, go for it. I was even told by the waiter that he had seen plates with up...More

There’s really only one place for authentic Chinese and Thai–and that’s Big Bowl. It all begins with the highest quality ingredients–naturally raised chicken and beef, heirloom pork, sustainable seafood and produce grown locally. Because Big Bowl believes that the best food is made from scratch, you can taste big, bold layers of flavors in every dish, from the curries right down to the dipping sauces. Everyone raves about the pad Thai, our spicy dishes that are truly hot, and our create-your-own stir-fry–and for good reason. Every element adds up to big taste and takes our food to another level, be it a fresh squeeze of lime, fragrant herbs or the seared Thai chilies. Big Bowl is so big on authentic flavors that even the ginger ale is made with fresh ginger root–from scratch, of course.
