Big Bowl is a pioneering Asian restaurant, vibrant in design and cuisine that offers the latest authentic Chinese and Thai food. Using market-fresh ingredients, Big Bowl's signatures include "dim sum-sized" appetizers that encourage sharing, Pad Thais, seafood, some truly hot & spicy food, and fresh made ginger ale. Diners from singles to family-style parties, end the meal as they began, with a sampling of "dim sum" desserts.Located in the heart of River North.
There is so much to be said about big bowl.It is by far one of the best places I've been blessed to pick up a fork. Specializing in pasta (one of my favorite dishes), the choices are endless! The food is outstanding, the service is dynamic! And best of all, its priced to leave you some nice change. Being set just outside the downtown area, you're literally minutes away from everything.
Wow. A great restaurant and great staff. We were in Chicago for a short 3 day vacation and went twice in three days. The second day we invited friends from the area and all of us enjoyed our meals.
Would highly recommend the restaurant if you enjoy fresh Thai food. We will return when in Chicago.
A great place. A bit steeper than jiyang_wang had led me to believe (two entrees, a soup, and a drink cost us over $40 with tax and tip), but the quality is way up there. My wife says that the hot and sour soup was one of the best she's ever had, and she orders it every time she tries a new Chinese restaurant (which is often). The passionfruit ginger ale was great, too. Our entrees were good, though not amazing; the portions look small, but we both had trouble finishing. Service was flawless. Plus, it's within walking distance of the Magnificent Mile and the Red Line.
This is one of my favorite date spots in Chicago. It's accross the street from a movie theater, virgin record store , and magnificent mile shopping. The food has been Excellent everytime but once. It was when they were under new ownership/management and my salmon pad tai was undercooked. The waiter not only apologised..but told the manager himself! The manager came up..apologised, and the meal was Free! I will definately go back for that kind of care! Also, the food is great! Better than what I've had at P.F. Chang's and on the whole cheaper. The ambiance is great...intimate..but u can also watch the game! Try the potstickers, the lettuce wraps, chicken pad thai. Pretty much everything is good.
