I've eaten here a few times and never had a problem until this last time. They must not have been careful this time because the next day I was sick.
Gf menu available and I used to get take out a lot but was always getting glutened. I finally ate in the restaurant once and saw how they cook through the open kitchen and it all made sense. Small space with all the dishes cooked right next to each other. Shared utensils, lots of flipping food all around. Cc all over the place. :(
Staff was very kind and efficient. Food was kind of heavy, but good. Didn't have a huge, prepared to be gluten free menu but they can adjust almost anything to be made flute free
Rice noodle option
Food was good, but left feeling as if I was going to be sick. Not sure if it was cross contamination.
Update: went to Big Bowl Roseville this week -- service has become insanely disgusting. Waiters/waitresses are rude and take no responsibility for their mistakes. Management is great at cleaning up their messes though. I also did get sick after this meal. They are becoming more careless as time goes on (they also don't have a specific gluten free menu anymore, not sure why). Always delicious, rarely have an issue. Can get pretty pricey but its worth it!
Dedicated gluten free menu with lots of great choices.
Dessert is amazing!!
I love Big Bowl's GF menu. Lots to choose from, including a few desserts. They've even got GF beer. I've never had any issues with either take out or dining in.
I come here all the time, it’s one of the only places I feel safe eating out at. Lots of gluten free options and the manager oversees all gluten free orders and brings out GF dishes instead of the waiters. They even use separate plates with red rims to identify gluten free dishes. Food is delicious!
The server was very knowledgeable on cross contamination and kitchen practices. They have a separate kitchen space to prepare the meal and use special allergy plates. The manager brings out all allergy meals. The food is good, not great, but it was a safe meal so I’d go back.
I tried some samples at a gluten-free expo and they were delicious. But the listing should not say that “delivery“ is offered. I called from the nearby Hilton Dulles and learned that the only delivery option is for catering, that is if your order is $250 or more. Please correct this in the listing.
Knowledgeable staff informed us that gf food is prepared in own area with separate cookware. Large gf menu includes appetizers, soup, main dishes, and one dessert. GF soy sauce provided. Excellent food. I didn't have a reaction and I am very sensitive. Highly recommended. We went to 60 E Ohio st location.
We just ate out together as a family for the first time since our 14 was diagnosed with Celiac's disease. We were so nervous but decided to try it out due to the reviews on here. We told the staff and they had two managers come out and talk to us to make sure they understood the severity. We had just come back from the Mayo Clinic and had the go a head to eat normal gluten free diet with absolutely no cross contamination . Not only did we have an amazing experience but we saw the manager wipe down the counter and her hands as she served our daughter her plate. AND then gave us a gluten free lava cake on the house! WE WERE ALL IN TEARS! This place cares deeply for their business and their customers! Amazing!
They changed their menu and the lettuce wraps don't taste as good- very bland and they no longer have gfree sweet and sour- only orange sauce which is a little too gingery for my liking. Still come here though as it is one of the few places to get Asian food gfree.
I was so excited to try this place because of its large selection of gf entrees. I ordered some sort of chicken dish. It tasted great. HOWEVER, I got terribly ill afterwards and was in immense pain all night! The waiter came across as not understanding the importance of no cross contamination action, even though I very clearly explained it to him. I was so disappointed! Never want to experience that type of intense pain. Thumbs down for this joint.
Large Gluten Free menu with many Chinese and Thai entrees that are normally hard to get as GF. I had Pad Thai with shrimp which was perfectly seasoned and cooked. GF soy and chili sauces at table that you can add yourself. This is a Lettuce Entertain You restaurant and they take great care ensuring safe GF preparation. Top quality food with safe GF practices makes this a great dining destination.
Could be a four or five stars. They had a GF menu available and asked if it was allergy or otherwise for prep. If you inform them of allergy, they prep it GF for the allergy and it's marked that way (we had take out). My wife (the GF-er) thought her grub was pretty good.
I was pretty impressed with Big bowl. I have several food allergies and they were great about working around all of them. They have an entire gluten free menu which makes ordering a breeze. They wait staff is well informed about the ingredients which was a breath of fresh air. I had the orange chicken and fried rice-which was delicious! They also have GF soy sauce.
Went there for the first time yesterday-- and WAS SERVED A NON GLUTEN FREE MEAL (yes, by mistake-- but I was 6 bites in before they realized their mistake). Upon ordering we had told the server (nicely) that four of the five of us were gluten free and that our entire order was off of the GF menu. When our main course came, we dug right in-- only to learn after a few minutes that the server brought us someone else's order and that we all had inadvertently consumed a relatively large amount of gluten-- NOT OKAY. While I understand and appreciate that they made a mistake (and thankfully caught it relatively quickly-- as well as comp'd my meal)-- that doesn't help alleviate the massive amount of pain my daughter and I are in, even now, nearly 24 hours later. Long story short, don't go there if you're GF for health/medical reasons-- or, at least, double and triple check your meal before consuming. Lesson learned, I'll stick to the 3-4 places that we already frequent that take gluten free seriously. DO NOT RECOMMEND.
Their gluten free menu has many of the options if the regular with slight modifications. The pad Thai, orange chicken and mochi are to die for! I love this place and never have problems there. The servers are attentive and a manager typically brings out my meal to ensure it was prepared properly
I was very happy to have checked out Big Bowl for a quick dinner while running errands. The server was very knowledgeable on GF/celiac, and when I started to talk about cross-contamination she said that they treat all GF orders as allergies. So I felt that they were on the ball and very capable. My chicken pad thai was excellent, and the server even brought out a bottle of GF soy sauce for me. Boyfriend also had the same but not GF. He tasted mine and said they were different, but obviously I couldn't compare. To me, it tasted just like what I remember to be standard pad thai.
