This is always a safe bet. Never excellent, but very consistent. Safe for a varied group of eaters, too. Something for all tastes, as long as they'll eat Asian. Really like the BBQ chicken fried rice and the potstickers. The soups are

My favorite entree here is the "make your own stir-fry". You get to go up to the veggie bar and heap your bowl with your favorite veggies. The entrees here are not cheap but they are tasty. The wait staff is very friendly and knowledgable and willing to assist with any dietary restrictions. If you're a newcomer, let your waiter know, they'll throw in a free appetizer!

I frequently eat-in and take-out from the Galleria location, but I had a coupon to this Ridgedale location so I decided to try it out. Wow, was I disappointed! A friend and I who are avid Big Bowl lovers ordered $45 worth of food, all of which we had eaten previously at the Galleria. We ate the Vege Dumplings and Vege Potsickers in the car and were extremely satisfied, but when we sat down to eat and watch a movie, we found that our containers of Yellow Curry Vegetable with Tofu were very watered down with hardly any vegetables, the tofu was cubed into extremely small pieces, and we were given about a half cup of rice. We were left very hungry after our meal. What a waste of money! I will NOT be going back to this location again.

Cons: barely any food, expensive

Terrible service, my waitress definitely wanted me in and out of there as fast as possible - and really showed it! Not only was she very snappy, but she also didn't want to bring drinks. PS - My table didn't have silver wear either. We had to ask for some. No biggie, but my waitress got irritated at US!

Food was alright, nothing special. And NOTHING worth everything that happened

And I got terrible food posoning! Nasty! I had the Kung Pao tofu.. my partner the Pad Thai. We both got very ill afterwards. In any case, we are both regretting spending 58 dollars on a terrible evening.

We waited for a table for about 45 minutes only to be sat at a table that was open for at least 20 minutes that we had even asked about. Food was okay but nothing special... definitely not worth the wait.

There is one dish I go here for, but it's not on the menu anymore. The good thing is, they will make it for me without any problem. My friends and I have been known to split a dish and an appetizer and leave really full. If you don't split it with someone, you will definitely have another meal for later. The service is always good and the management very friendly.

PROS: Good service and great food.
CONS: Can be noisy.

Not as good as PF Chang's. It always seems like it's a challenge to get in ... even with reservations. Love the Kung Pao Chicken. It's nice and spicy. In my opinion the service is below average. There are better dining options around Ridgedale -- Bacio and Redstone.

True, it's not a 'Chinese' restaurant per se. But it's Asian & it's fresh & we love it!
My husband is deathly allergic to MSG - so eating at an Asian restaurant is a treat. I've tried almost everything & it's a decent food.
Favorites are the Summer Spring Rolls & the Potstickers cannot be beat. Love the Blazing flat noodles too.

The Big Bowl is a great dining experience. The food is unique to that area, the service is great, and YOU MUST TRY THE POTSTICKERS AND GINGER ALE! IT IS TO DIE FOR!! I think I am going to go there tonight!

Big Bowl is definitely the place to go for Oriental Cuisine! It has a variety of cuisines on one menu, a fabulous atmosphere and awesome service. A must go!

Large portions, excellent entrees, and the calamari is KILLER. Make sure you try the homemade ginger ale. In my opinion, this is a much better (but definitely different) version of PF Chang's.

Usually my wife and I enjoy Big Bowl, but our last experience was disheartening. The customer service has really gone down hill, although I don't think the service at Ridgedale has ever been up tot he standard set at the Edina location.

Our server was slow, checked back only one time during our meal and to top it off, he breezed by and dropped the check off without offering dessert or coffee which is a favorite part of our meal.

When is Chinese food ever pretentious? Ok...the menus is creative..but it's NOT ALL CHINESE FOOD. They mix a variety of different ethnic tastes in there. Therefore, this is not a fair vote.
