I came here once for a bit of Thai food on an evening and ended coming back twice more, really nice food and a great atmosphere. We ate at the bar and watched basketball whilst we ate and drank some local craft beers. I couldn't recommend a better place to go for some asian cuisine.

When we are in the mood for asian food while in Chicago...Big Bowl is it. Good food (especially the pad thai), good service, and an upscale atmosphere make for a good meal. make sure you ask to see the dessert tray. The rotating desserts are not to be missed.

If you are into healthy, Asian meals, this is it!
You actually grab a bowl and fill it with veggies, spices and sauce (if you wish), add your choice of meat, chicken or tofu and they will stir fry it for you!
They also have a menu but the stir fry was always my favourite!
Deserts are HUGE and can be shared!

Was surprised when my wife chose this place, spur of the moment. More surprised at the food!!! Was not expecting the quality, speed of service or the surprisingly good REAL ginger ale. We shared a chef's bowl, and some dumplings, and it was just perfect. Great food, Well spiced, reasonable prices and the waiter made excellent suggestions!!! You gotta eat here !!

i was staying in a hotel just down the street and needed a quick and inexpensive meal. Called Big Bowl and ordered Pad Thai with vegetables and tofu and yellow curry chicken with sweet green beans to go.. Pad Thai was good a little light on the tofu and veg and heavy on the noodles. the curry my wife said was too salty but tasted ok to me. all in all it was good for about $28 bucks including tax. very fresh veggies.
