Have it your way – very fresh, tasty food...I love being able to pick the ingredients and then have someone else cook it for me.
Fish juice – Ok so I tried the veggie asian noodle dish, and yes it is made with fish broth. I'm not a fan of fish and was completely disturbed when I found this out but it was amazing.
Ginger tea thats like a hug from Mom – The food is great, and the ginger tea is so good it is worth the long trip we take to get there.
American Food? – I think the food was American Cuisine with peanuts and hearbs even though they make a good effort in interiors and using better looking dinnerwares comparing to some chinese restaurants. I think the people who thinks the food is good here needs some experience dining somewhere else too.
Great Value – Wonderful atmosphere, food was awesome. Service was outstanding as well.
Wonderful – Great food, service and kid friendly, fresh asian cooking at it's best.
Better Places To Go – If there is one thing Big Bowl delivers that's disappointment. Living downtown I eat out frequently and Asian cuisine is on my top 3. The menu here is limited and the portions on a regular entree are skimpy in terms of meat and veggies. You'll get a decent size portion of rice or noodles, but will pay almost twice the price and there is much better quality out there to be had. The decor is trendy and the staff is touch and go depending on how busy they are. I would much rather go to Ben Pao's or PF Changs. You actually get a much nicer ambiance and far superior quality of food for about the same price.
not for asians – This is about Big Bowl in Schaumburg
If you're asian, don't go here cuz you'll be offended. I don't know who's in the back cooking but they don't know how to make asian food. The balances in the taste were all wrong. My wife and I were very upset.
potstickers potstickers! – Did I mention potstickers? So savory and delicious that I order two sets to eat with my chicken soup. I haven't even had a chance to try anything else because the soup and potstickers are so good.
well... – The ginger ale is tasty but I've yet to find an entree that I really enjoy. The flavors are nice and the vegetables are crispy fresh but the noodles aren't very good - too soft and oily.
