Enjoyed a late lunch here. Food prepared fresh and very tasty. You order at counter and everything is freshly prepared. A healthy choice of items with eclectic combinations of flavors to tempt your palate. Try the Saigon Chicken wrap or Chef's Salad. Priced right and convenient parking. Worth a visit.

A small local place with an international awareness of food on the menu. Some soups can be purchased frozen to take home. Bread is delicious and loaves can be purchased.

My husband and I were in town on business and eating out a lot; This place is a perfect blend of delicious and nutritious for restaurant food-weary souls. The bread was amazing, what's better is they serve the butter room temperature so it spreads without tearing apart the soft crumb. The soups were flavorful and filling without having massive servings.... More

Great food, comfortable environment and great service. I keep coming back for the Saigon Gyro (chicken). I highly recommend checking this place out!

Had the Bangkok bowl which was excellent. Everything we received looked fresh and beautiful. Would definitely visit again if we ever pass through the area. Has flavors from around the globe which is cool.

They catered a meeting and the food was exceptional. Nice vegetarian wraps, salads, just great healthy, clean food which is so unusual for meeting catered lunches. For years we've eaten before the meeting meal if possible or brought something in the brief case for a snack. This was definitely in the top for years of mediocre catered lunch choices. I... More

We were expecting soup but when we saw the menu, we couldn't decide. I had chicken mushroom bowl and my wife had the taco salad. They were both very good. We ate at the Mt. Clinton Pike location near the campus. I'm not sure why TA combines the two locations. It was busy and tasty. The locals really like it.... More

As always we were on the lookout for a place that catered to vegetarians (never easy, even in big cities, much less smaller ones) So we were glad to find the Bowl of Good. It is a bit out of the way, across from the soft ball field at Eastern Mennonite U (think the BoG may be affiliated with EMU... More
