Big Bowl

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 chiles. Big Bowl is so big on authentic flavors that even the ginger ale is made with fresh ginger root – from scratch, of course.
