Description: There’s really only one place for authentic Chinese and Thai–and that’s Big Bowl. It all begins with the highest quality ingredients–naturally raised chicken and beef, heirloom pork, sustainable seafood and produce grown locally. Because Big Bowl believes that the best food is made from scratch, you can taste big, bold layers of flavors in every dish, from the curries right down to the dipping sauces. Everyone raves about the pad Thai, our spicy dishes that are truly hot, and our create-your-own stir-fry–and for good reason. Every element adds up to big taste and takes our food to another level, be it a fresh squeeze of lime, fragrant herbs or the seared Thai chilies. Big Bowl is so big on authentic flavors that even the ginger ale is made with fresh ginger root–from scratch, of course.

This is one of the only chain restaurants we consistently enjoy to dine. The food is fresh, delicious and, for the most part, consistent. My husband and I especially love the chicken pot stickers, the shrimp summer rolls, the lettuce wraps and the Panang curry. Depending on who is cooking, the Panang curry is better some nights than others!

Most disappointing are the fortune cookies, not much flavor and silly fortunes/advice.

My family loves this restaurant we come here about once every 4-6 weeks. The food is always fresh and wonderfully prepared.

The food is always fresh and you get a large serving. I always have take out so my dinner really only costs about $7! The chefs use a lot of lemongrass, so it tastes fresh and clean. The wait staff is usually very pleasant and efficient, but sometimes you get a server that is not as well trained.

We have eaten at the Big Bowl in Reston, Virginia. That location seems to have its act together a little more than this location. We were seated near the point where the wait staff picks up food. A lot of plates seemed to sit for a long time, getting cold. That was certainly true of our soup, appetizer and entrée. Each dish was lukewarm. There didn't seem to be enough wait staff or they need to use food runners. Take out orders seemed to be getting a lot of focus.

The good is always good. I tried the Thai curry bowl this time for a change. It was excellent.
The dumplings is a hit with my family. I just wish they offer a larger portion of this appetizer.
Service is great. We were seated right away at 4:30pm on a Fri.
If u come after 6, there will be a wait but its worth it.
