We were hungry and tired from walking around the neighborhood and chanced upon this hidden gem Red Bowl. We tried our luck in ordering what is special in their Menu. Tried the Tender and sweet pork ribs noodles and General Tao's Chicken (Their version of General Tso's Chicken) To our delight, the pork ribs were tender and succulent, noddles were... More

Guys, if you're in Brooklyn definitely check out Red Bowl restaurant! I've been fortunate enough to eat here many times and it never disappoints. Located in a lively and happening part of Brooklyn - Williamsburg, Red Bowl is right in the center of a bustling urban life. The food is absolutely delicious, be it fish, veggies, meat or seafood. My... More

I was in the mood for Thai and this was the first place I saw. Maybe I should have taken a few signs into consideration... Maybe the fact that they were too lazy to flip the opened/closed sign, perhaps the fact that they only had one customer sitting inside, or maybe that the floors were soaked from their dirty mop....

If you consider money, this is one of the best restaurants around there. I ordered a shrimp with oyster sauce, the plate was huge and the flavour was perfect. Definitely would come back,

This isn't your average Chinese restaurant, and Brooklyn has tons of Chinese Restaurants. The food is real, real good. The atmosphere is chic. The owners are off the hook wonderful, something you don't find at a lot of Chinese restaurants. The service is great too. I felt more like I was at the center of a big party than our... More

Williamsburg is what Greenwich Village used to be. Walk over the Brooklyn Bridge to DUMBO (Down Under Manhattan Bridge Overpass and look around, then catch a cab to Bedford St in Williamsburg. Or take the Water Taxi to W'burg. Red Bowl is highly rated by Zagat. Two people ordered four shared dishes for $38 and the food was outstanding. I... More

So I took a shot and stopped in. What a great surprise. Everything I ordered was wonderful! Flavorful , nice... More

We were out for a family stroll on Bedford Avenue and came across this restaurant. We hadn't had asian food for the 2 weeks we had been travelling so gave it a go. The food and portions are both very good and the staff are friendly. This is good chinese food freshly cooked and without that heaviness that can come... More
