This place is excellent, excellent, excellent. Cannot complain! The food is so flavorful and the people are so personable, friendly and like family. Everytime we go here, we walk away so satisfied and content. Please stop in and try it for yourself. Let them know how you want your food and they will be more than happy to oblige you. We love Jumbo Bowl Cafe.
Jumbo Bowl has been my place to be since i was in junior high years ago! its still owned by the same people it seems, and the food is still great. portion size has gotten smaller, but is still good size for two.
We have been eating at the Jumbo bowl for 6 months, we go there
3 to 4 times a week and take all of our friends we usually go with 10 plus people and the service is still great , the food is always good I have never had a bad dish my favorite is the pork chow mein and the heavenly noodles my kids love the chicken pad thai
I highly recommend the Jumbo Bowl. everbody we have taken there goes back and is a regular
This place is excellent. I go about twice a month. Their pad kee mao is awesome. A little on the oily side, but nonetheless, very tasty but don't order it mild. It needs to be spicy to experience the full flavor! Their tom kha gai is AWESOME! It's not the typical tasting tom kha gai that I am used to but it doesn't matter because it's sooo good. Also delicious is their papaya salad (som tom). Careful how spicy you order it. It can set your mouth on fire. Prices are about $6 a plate which is very reasonable. Orange chicken is a must too. Very lightly battered and fried with a nice coating of glaze. Yum. They've improved tremendously from the first time I ever went there several years ago. Go there.
I LOVE JUMBO BOWL! Hands down the best chicken curry in Riverside. Before you die you most have the Pad Woon Sen. The Tom Kha Kai is the best soup I've EVER had, anywhere ever. My husband and I took our parents here and feed 6 people for less than $50.
I have to agree with several other reviews I've read on this site as well as other critique sites that the Pad Kee Mao noodle was quite delicious. However, the Tom Yum soup was very sweet and that is not how it's supposed to taste (I'm Chinese and my bf is Thai). It is supposed to be a sour and spicy soup so this was very disappointing. The Crying Tiger (beef) dish tasted like cardboard or beef jerky for about $5. Just quite different from other places. Their Thai tea was okay if you like it without cream because it had very little cream in it. I guess they opted for the less sweet taste. The other thing that was good (other than the Pad Kee Mao noodle) was the Coconut Ice Cream but at $2.50 a scoop. Prices are fair for their entrees at about $6-7 for the Pad Kee Mao, but if you're hungry, one dish may not fill you up.
