Really fresh ingredients to choose for your "build-your-own" stir-fry. Portions are very large; @$16.95, you actually get enough for 2 meals. Lots of variations to choose from, including Thai and Szechuan sauces. My wife had an appetizer portion of teriyaki chicken wings that were the...More

Nothing too special about Big Bowl. Feels like it is higher/more upscale than a Chili's or Olive Garden, but not as quality as a legitimate Thai restaurant. I put it in the same league as Mongolian BBQ. The lunch specials are not that bad though....More

Delicious Panang Chicken. Salmon stir fry fresh and well done. Teriyaki chicken stir fry was also quite tasty. Service very good from Josh. Enjoyed being able to order a variety of Asian dishes, all well prepared.

I think that Big Bowl does a pretty good job as a chain style Asian restaurant and usually walk away pretty pleased with what I have had. The selection is really good and service is fast, friendly and efficient.

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.
