Met a friend working in the area, luckily we got there just before the lunch rush. I remembered that I had eaten there before once, but hadn't been impressed, but I hadn't remembered before we agreed to meet. Had Hot and Sour soup and Beef Lettuce Wraps. I usually go with the waiter's suggestions, and he was very enthusiastic about... More

One of the best restaurants I have ever eaten at. The food was amazing. The location was perfect, as we were staying at the Hampton right beside it. Highly recommended.

Bar counter for one on a Thursday night dinner. The bar tender was a great fellow although he did look busy with the crowd. I enjoyed a glass of ice cold Goose Green Line IPA and the "Ginger Sea Scallops and Shrimps with Vegetable fried rice". The the seasoning was a lttle more zesty than my taste, but seems to... More

This restaurant is awesome but it ends there. Waiters were border rude and some were flat out rude. Food is good and tasted great. Beware if you don't like spicy food that most food is spicy. Come for 1/2 price apps and you can make a meal out of it. I recommend this fully.

Went with a large group. We could choose from the menu or make our own bowl. We did both. Accommodated our request for separate checks. Food was very good and the portions were good

We had carry out and the server was very nice and we didn't wait long for food. We had a container labeled shrimp, but there were no shrimp in it, it was chicken. Average. We eat at simple Chinese restaurants that are FAR less expensive and about the same.

I have been going to this Big Bowl location for almost 20 years. It is always excellent. Whether you pick your own assortment of vegetables from the terrific array and select the meat and sauce so they can stir up your own personal "Big Bowl" or you choose a selection from the menu, it is always great food, great service....

My husband and I came here for date night. Glad we made reservations because it was packed! He built his own bowl. I ordered the Beef Pan See Ew. Both were fantastic and large portions so we had leftovers the next day. The Cucumber Chiller cocktail was very good and refreshing.

I have many food allergies and can order plain Salmon and fresh Vegetables made to order. They are very careful with food prep. when you mention allergies. All food is fresh not processed. Their homemade ginger soda is amazing! Usually very busy in the evening, and can be a little pricey but worth it.
