It's been ages since we ate at Big Bowl. It was a great experience. Our meal began with drinks (MaiTai and MangoTini) and appetizers; Tempura Green Beans and Vegatable Pot Stickers. Both were absolutely delicious! The green beans were perfectly battered and fried crisply, but not mushy inside, and served with a very tasty Thai Chili sauce. Be sure to request additional sauce for dipping. It is SO addictive! The potstickers were fried to a nice crispness and served with soy dipping sauce. Our dinner entrees were Vegetable/Tofu Pad Thai for me and Ginger Sea Scallops and Shrimp for the hubby. Both dishes are outstanding! And be forewarned, their portions are very generous. My Pad Thai had generous portions of tofu, lightly sautéed vegetables perfectly seasoned. It was SOOO good! My husband thoroughly enjoyed his seafood dish. Both seafood and vegetables were cooked and seasoned well. A ginger garlic sauce complemented the ingredients. We both agreed that we won't wait years to return. Big Bowl is definitely a "must go" dinner option!

This is one of our favorite restaurants in Schaumburg so when we got into town from our road trip this was the first choice. We didn't have time to make a reservation so we opted to be seated at the bar.

You know when a restaurant is run well, the employees are happy & busy, the kitchen & restrooms are clean.

We ordered the homemade egg rolls, chicken potstickers, ginger scallops & shrimp and a plate at the customized stir fry bar with drinks.

Our food was fresh and delicious and the service pleasant and prompt - even at the bar!

This is a good Asian restaurant---my favorites are the calamari and spicy green beans, both appetizers. I wish they had more locations but I do try to treat myself when I'm in the area. At least for these two apps!!
