Thai Herb Fresh Calamari
lightly fried; lemon-thai dipping sauce
Chicken Lettuce Wraps
bibb lettuce, hoisin sauce, crispy rice noodle
Excellent as always.
Wouldn’t recommend unless you’re a group of teens or college students. The food was mediocre, greasy, and for a Thai restaurant it didn’t offer most of the traditional Thai dishes.
Very nice and we’ll be back!
The stir-fry was pure awesome! Great service and nice atmosphere.
Love this place... wish they had one in Philadelphia
Food was good, service was not. Took awhile for food & drinks to come out (doesn’t take much time to pour a draft beer). Ordered 2 appetizers only received one of the two, when we inquired about whereabouts of the 1st (chicken satay), server claimed he didn’t hear us, even though he recommended the second appetizer, egg rolls, as an addition when we ordered. Server failed to inform us about kid’s drink options as part of their meal. Have dined there many times in the past, unfortunately this was our least favorite experience.
Great food and good price. Date night at Everyday Dining Rate
Dinner with my wife. Milton was our server, took care of superbly as usual! The receptionist was great too, she knew to place us at Milton’s table. This is our go to place!
Wonderful food and service!
Great experience with our family and friends. Food is always yummy! Great food for the kids and not too pricey!
Big Bowl never disappoints. My husband and I come here frequently and always get the Stir Fry Bar. Food is plentiful, fresh, and piping hot - the way it should be! Delicious!
Party of eight, seated at a smallish table. Service was slow even though the restaurant wasn't that crowded. Waiter left our finished meals in front of us for at least 20 minutes, ugh. Our birthday person got a birthday dessert, yay, but the rest of us were never offered the dessert menu? Strange. Kinda funny.
Very good food and the waiter was patient with us 1st timers.
Noise level was bit high but otherwise as usual food and service was excellent.
Great food, outstanding service! We come here for all special occasions.
As usual, the food was great, and the price was worth it.
Lot of Nice Vegetarian options... you can choose your Veg bowl... though little pricy....
Empty night but good food and company. Good sangria
Food was excellent but waiter was forgetful and had to be reminded of things we had asked for. He asked if we’d like to see a dessert menu and we said yes and he never ever came back so we finally just asked for a check. There were five of us celebrating a birthday party
As always, our family dining experience was excellent. Good food and drinks all around.
Stir fry bar is always awesome. Delicious,fresh, served piping hot!:
Delicious and super attentive service!
We were able to get a table when the other areas restaurants were booked out for at least an hour. Table service was average, only complaint was that it wasn't very timely. It was very friendly just waited a long time for refills and secondary meal requests.
I absolutely LOVE their create your own stir fry bar. You get so much food. It’s definitely the best deal on the menu and most delicious.
Love this place! I have been going there for years. Food and service always consistent.
Milton is great
This is my favorite place our waiter Milton, was amazing he’s so attentive, gives awesome recommendations, moves so quickly at bringing out our orders. I can’t wait to go back
Was welcomed warmly. Food tasted fresh and warm and service was quite good. Will return again.
This is one of the few places you can go where, if the menu says it is hot, it is HOT! I love it!!! They really need to bring the Shrimp Summer Rolls back to the menu.
Do not sit outside at this location. Your server will forget about you!
Service was great and the food was pretty good - just not as good as I remember it being.
The food was great, as usual. My only downside is the fact that I reserved the table for my mother’s birthday and they failed to find it. I called ahead of time and the woman on the phone gave a lot of attitude and “ did not find” the reservation that I had made through Open Table. Not too happy with the rude staff members and not sure about returning there because of it.
Big Bowl's environment is amazing, and the staff were all so nice! We went there as a group for homecoming, so as you can imagine, our group was very noisy. However, the waiters were still extremely patient and helpful throughout the whole night. Eating here was one of the highlights of that day, it made our first homecoming so much fun. I would definitely recommend coming here, especially for a special event!!
Good was nothing to write home about. Very average.
As usual, the food was great.
We had a large party and had made reservations.
The manager was rude and disinterested.
Certainly not the Big Bowl we had come to expect.
Food is filled with sodium. Nothings changed in 20 years
I like the concept of Big Bowl, which allows you to build your own dish through their vegetable bar. However, service is often inconsistent.
This is our go-to place when my husband and I feel like going out for dinner. Food is always great and service is usually excellent. This time our server recognized us (how often does that happen any more?) so it was particularly nice. Food was very tasty and cooked well (Shrimp Pad Thai and a spicy Chicken with Peppers and Other Vegetables over brown rice-sorry, not sure what my husband's dish was called!). We cleaned our plates. Then...dessert. Big Bowl has the most delicious desserts! We shared my favorite - banana egg rolls with ice cream and caramel sauce. Yummmmmm! Service was, of course, excellent. Still our favorite place!!!!
The best way to describe the service is awkward. The greeting as we entered was without a smile and not warm although helpful. The server was friendly, but seemed unsure of herself and the menu and nothing flowed easily. Nothing was wrong with our order, but the interaction was awkward.
If you're looking to customize your meal, the bar option is excellent. Vegetables are fresh and you can pick your favorites. We ate outside and had outstanding service. Nice place to relax with family and friends at a reasonable price.
