Have had some decent meals here, and decided to try it again for our anniversary on Wednesday, July 6. Turned out to be senior night, so there were several offerings on the menu as well as a percentage off on the meal. Not bad. We were seated right by the front door in a booth. Not terrible, but each time... More

With my love for Sushi, it does not get any better than this for dining out in Aiken, SC. Located near the south side of Whiskey Road, this place is open 7 days a week for lunch and dinner. The staff is very friendly and the food is awesome. They do have a happy hour special with any seafood and... More

This place is horrible. I just left! While eating dinner a roach crawled right up next to my co-worker. The waiter came over and killed it with his hand and asked us if we wanted a to-go box. NO!!!!! Before we exited the restaurant another waiter asked if we were sure we did not want a to-go box. I am... More

We went to Red Bowl at my son's request to celebrate his report card. On any given day, 11:00am to 6:30pm, Red Bowl has a sushi 50% off special. Some of the appetizers, including Tempura, goes for $5.00 between 4:00pm and 6:30pm. Although I do not eat sushi, my wife and children loved it. The chicken tempura was nice. Now,... More

We wanted to have Asian food and decided to give Red Bowl a try. We were seated right away. The decor is a modern take on Asian with red paper lamps. It's quite pleasing. We ordered bang bang shrimp as an appetizer and it was excellent. The vegetable spring rolls were just OK. The entree I ordered was from the... More

We go for the sushi and are never disappointed. They have happy hour 1/2 off sushi everyday, which is a treat! My husband and I leave full after 4 rolls of sushi. Quiet seating, soft light, and good service.

Staff was very pleasant. The food was average, not fantastic, but not bad. Portions were large. They did have some fun drinks. Wouldn't be my "go-to" place, but definitely ok to stop in from time to time.

I hear the service and food is not consistent, but the day we were there for lunch, both were excellent. While perhaps, not really authentic, it certainly fit the bill

Comfortable restaurant with soft jazz music, good service, and DELICIOUS food at a reasonable price. Who could ask for more? Only thing we didn't like were the bland, under-filled egg rolls that came with the meals. Give them a pass to save more room for the tasty main dishes. Glad we opted for the Chinese noodles as they were an... More

The first thing I noticed when getting seated was a guy giving a gal a shoulder rub behind the counter. Poor on-stage behavior! Look, the moment a business thinks they are good enough, and starts to allow slippage, it's the beginning of the end (like Ni Hau).
