During this time of social distancing I wanted to give a shout out to these folks. We decided to order take out from this establishment and the food was outstanding and piping hot when we got home. The servings sizes were very large-we have at...least 2 more meals on each of our main dishes. The reason for the shout out is because they are trying to do their part to help our community. They are making frozen chicken and eggs available for sale at rock bottom prices. We purchased 2 dz eggs for 4.00$. There are no eggs or poultry in the grocery stores around us so I was very thankful that they didn't choose to hoard their surplus like so many have been doing-nor are they trying to price gouge us. If your in the Boerne community, stop by this restaurant. Maybe you live near an elderly person who can't get out-these folks have eggs and chicken for sale in addition to excellent Chinese food. Thank you China Bowl for doing your part to help your community!!More

We have been to the other two Chinese restaurants in Boerne frequently but never tried China Bowl until this week. Best hot and sour soup, most flavorful entrees with some spice which seems missing from the others. Will definitely go back.

We have lived in Boerne for the past two years. The first time we went to China Bowl about a year ago was with some friends who highly recommended it. We walked in, it was jam packed and we noticed there was hardly anybody with...food at their tables. There was not enough wait staff and apparently not enough cooks. We just left. The next time we tried again, it was ok. The food was average good, as was the service. We thought we would try it again and when we went in, it wasn't jam packed, but again, not enough wait staff or cooks. There were open dirty tables, nobody cleaning them and nobody being waited on. We left and will not be back.More

We have been eating at the China Bowl for as long as it has been in Boerne, and before that at their place in Bandara. The other day after the movie we went their for a late lunch/early dinner. At one point we were the...only couple in there. We had the corn soup and it was cool, not hot. It was the only thing we ordered that was the same. My wife was sick as soon as we got home and I was later that day. Suggestion, if your soup in not hot...don't eat it.More

I have eaten at the China Bowl a few times and overall it is a decent Chinese restaurant, but there is plenty of room to improve. I generally like to have wonton soup, and I expect the wonton to be firm. Unfortunately, mine has usually...been gummy.More

Ordered take-out. Got home and right away found two small black hairs (perhaps eyebrow? They weren't mine--wrong color!) AND a strip of black plastic that looked like wire mixed in the Chicken with Vegetables plate. Also, I had ordered fried rice and received steamed rice....Returned the food AND the hairs and wire to China Bowl and the manager wanted to give me a Gift Certificate rather than refunding my money. I told the manager that I NEVER wanted to eat there again so the gift certificate was pointless. Still refused to refund my money. Have read other customers complaints on FB of similar experiences and I have no intention of eating there again. GROSS!!!More

DO NOT Patronize this place. The Service is absolutely rude & condescending because they don't seem to grasp the fundamental American concept of tips on credit cards SO the next time you go in noone wants to wait on you because they think you stiffed...them the last time. We left a $9 tip for a $20 meal as we thought we would have to return.. On the return visit, we waited 10 minutes and noone EVER came to table while serving people after we returned. They appear to humiliate their customers. When they finally decided to send a 15 boy to the table, they were :OUT OF" EVERYTHING we asked for thereafter. We left of course!! They behave like grade school bullies stupid to the fact that they were left a much more than generous tip the last time. Main entry is very dry without sauce. Portions very small. Small town Back Woodsy Touch and Feel !!! AVOID AT ALL COSTS !!!!!More

Went here for lunch, service was excellent, food came almost immediately and was delicious. Don't know what else to say except we'd go back there for sure.
