Big Bowl - Chicago
We have been visiting here for 15 years now and it never fails to win us over. Penang chicken curry has all of us under it’s spell!
The food was poorly prepared and the food seemed to be just slopped on the plate.
Haven't dined there in decades, as we moved away, but we were hoping to see if the food was still great, and brought some friends along. Appetizers of Calamari and Sushi and Peanut Noodles were very good to excellent. Main courses were basically average however. Fortunately a very gracious Waiter helped improve it all.
Leticia was awesome!!! We had a great time and will be back!!!
Great food with a dear friend. Our waitress, was very kind and helpful
Birthday party......great time!!
Visiting Chicago for a play. Had a chance to visit the Big Bowl for lunch. Excellent customer service. Our server was very attentive and personable. Our food was delicious, hot and generous! Will be back for more!
Went during alentines day weekend, and ordered from the Valentines special menu. It was the best! Although they were very busy, our food came out fast and fresh. Will visit again.
Overall cool atmosphere. It seemed like our food order was lost in the shuffle multiple tables who arrived after us were served before us and an appetizer order was totally lost/not placed with the kitchen. Once brought to the managers attention, they were very friendly and attentive and followed up on the food order. The server was a little MIA during our time in the restaurant. The food was ok. Very large portions. Nice lunch combination menu.
Excellent waitor. Really liked all the healthy options. Perfect for children. The Lunar New Year menu had some nice options
Our server john was great! The food was plentiful and tasty! Great place!
I left smelling like fried food because of how close we were sitting to the open kitchen
Came in for lunch on Monday, Jeremey was our server and he was fantastic! He was super patient with my friend and I and was extremely friendly. I’ve dined at Big Bowl multiple times and live only a few blocks away and this was, by far, the best experience we’ve had thanks to Jeremey!
Good Food and great experience
Food taste great. Not busy on Tuesday
Kylie or kealy (very sweet African American woman) was our amazing server.
Im a Big Bowl regular and one of my favorite dishes is the spicy Sichuan beef, I order it almost every time we go. This time around it was way too spicy, it looked like the chef dumped a tablespoon of chili sauce on it (I can see the sauce and seeds). I told the waiter and he suggest I get it without the red peppers. I knew the issue wasn’t the peppers, I always get it the same way without adjusting the peppers, but he insisted and I said, ok, easy peppers. It came back with like 2 red peppers and no flavor...I ate it because I was hungry and didn’t have time to send it back but it was not good at all.
Leticia was our waiter and she was excellent.
Food is always delicious here and fresh!
Waiter was amazing. Heard about us getting into college and gave us a free dessert! Very kind and considerate.
Our waiter was extremely nice and attentive to our allergy needs. Food was delicious as always . We added an additional person to our party and moved tables with no issues. Overall nice dinner.
Such an easy place to gather with the “build a bowl” option!
Food was fresh and delish. Our server, Burdell, was amazing!!!
Only open table was next to a family with a screaming kid or else ambiance would have been a 4
Didn’t like the server took for ever to help us
They put us down as a no show even though we came
One of our all-time favorites! Service was excellent and so was dinner, my only complaint is I asked for my cauliflower ( I stay away from rice) to be overcooked and it wasn't it was crunchie. Otherwise cocktails were good!
Food was terrible - overcooked and nearly burnt! Very slow service!
The food is always very good.
Ordered the sweet and sour shrimp. The shrimps tasted stale and were low quality. Food quality was very bad this time.
I wanted to order everything on the menu! They have so many small plates and appetizers that are just delicious. That’s the way my lady friends and I like to dine. It’s very close to AMC 600. So it’s the perfect place for dinner before or after a movie. We weren’t the only ones who loved it. The place was packed. Glad I made a reservation. But even though they were really busy, the service was excellent and the food came out very fast. Definitely on our movie night list.
Loved everything about it! Service was wonderful and food was delicious
The food was savory and delicious.
Decent food but the restaurant had an open kitchen. It was VERY smoky to the point where me and my guest were coughing for most of the meal. Totally understand they do a lot of stir fry dishes but they haven't figured out the kitchen / room ventilation and it ruined our experience.
The best pot stickers I've ever had! Definitely coming back on my next trip to Chicago!
Arrived with Family for our reservation. Seated promptly, and received excellent customer service during our entire meal. Our complete meal from appetizers to dinner was everything we were looking forward to. We don’t get downtown with Family very often and when we do, The Big Bowl is our #1 choice! Thank you for an excellent dining experience!
love big bowl one of my all time favorites
