Best Eggrolls – Ok so this place is clean, has great service, a great atmosphere, and the food here is better than any food you can get at a buffet. I love the egg rools and the wonton soup. and there general tsos chicken is awesome. Try to go here :)
Love It – I only want Red Bowl when I am craving asian style food.
They have great sushi as well... and not too pricey!
Recommended highly, but beware on weekends when they are busy... the wait and seating can be a bit pitiful!
Shrimp Phad Thai is amazing! – I am obsess with eating their shrimp phad thai. I always ask for it to be extra, extra spicy. And they are good about turning up the heat!! The sushi tastes really fresh. We had the flaming roll and the Dragon maki. Both had eel drape on top and was delicious! We had a couple of $5 martinis--appletini and mangotini--and they were not in small glasses but big size martini glasses. You get more for your $$$. It's like paying $5 for a $10 drink. The food portions here are big too. And they let you share. So don't be shy about asking for a to-go box. Me and my husband could never finish it. So it's lunch the next day.
attentive service, pretty bartender, the best sushi!! – This place has amazing sushi! The golden fall roll is my favorite. Has a mango sauce on top. Their sushi is very creative! Very delicious! I have eaten alot of Gen. Tso chicken in my life time...but Red Bowl has the BEST Gen.Tso you can find in town! Very crispy, sweet and spicy! They also have $2 amber bock all day long and good cocktail specials! The bartender was very sweet and attentive. She makes good drinks and is not shy about giving you your money's worth. Was very patient w/ my wife who is a picky eater.
Good drink specials! good sushi! Huge portions – I'm impress with this restaurant's decor. Is decorated in natural wood tones and has very romantic lighting. Went here with my girlfriend for my birthday. They have the best sushi. We had the flaming roll, and hot river. and we shared the Ma-La seafood with shrimp and scallops. It was spicy and has a hint of basil and delicious! The bartender was very attentive and had thorough knowledge of the food. We asked alot of questions. She recommended the Ma-La. They had $5 long island iced teas!! Which is very rare for a place to have. Very good overall experience! Would definitely come here again.
Stay away from the bar – Good food at reasonable prices. However, don't go near the bar at the restaurant because the Asian girl behind the bar has a very bad attitude and is extremely unfriendly. All other service personnel seem very well trained and personable. She would rather pretend to wash a glass than take your order, and even then treats customers with extreme disrespect. Avoid the bar, if you can. I am telling all of my friends to avoid her.
