I LOVE Big Bowl. They are fantastic with allergies. I have Celiac and a dairy allergy and they have a clear protocol. Food is prepped in a GF pan, pink slip is filled out and a manager runs the food out separately to the table. All allergy/GF meals come on a red rimmed plate so that the kitchen and you know it’s an allergy/GF meal. I’ve eaten here so many times and have never gotten sick. The veggie spring rolls are a must! Also, the chicken lettuce wraps are AMAZING! You need to try this place if you like asian cuisine.

Came here for half priced appetizers and everything was amazing! Great portion sizes and even greater prices. Had the summer vegetable roll, chicken satay, and lettuce wraps. The gluten free menu is huge. Great place to satisfy your asian food craving. Will be back soon!

Got sick. Also - server tried to give me my colleague’s non gf meal. If they had protocols they were not following them. Really tired of restaurants telling me how great they are at serving Celiacs and then dropping the ball.

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.

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.

Very helpful staff. When my meal was delivered they said the Gluten Free Thai Chicken. I knew then that they were extra careful.

Just okay. Wasn't thrilled with my food. It wasn't *bad* per say, just wasn't anything to write home about. I don't plan on going back really. I much prefer PF Changs!

We stopped there because the app said there was gf menu and the reviews were good. We were in town for the GF expo.

We ordered the GF lettuce wraps because the server said that was possible even though it was not on the gf menu. My friend ordered the gf pad Thai. everything tasted really good! we were glad we stopped.

on the way home on our hour + drive, we both started to get sick :( not sure if it was due to ordering something not on the gf menu.

Good gluten free menu. The waitress right away asked if I understood the menu or had any other allergies. It is even safe to create your own bowl here - She wrote "Gluten allergy" all over my order ticket. Yum!

My service was out standing. I told the waiter that I need a dairy free, gluten free and a I had a mushroom allergy. He said milk wouldn’t really be a issue. But wanted me to give him a few options of what I was wanting because they use mushroom soy sauce. So I did and ended up with the orange chicken made with rice noodles. It was so good and stuffed myself. I felt very confident eating here. The waiter told me a number of times they take allergies very seriously there. Can’t wait to go back.

Just ate here tonight and the waitress was helpful in making sure the entrees were celiac safe. She had to confirm what sauces were GF and food safe practices. Originally, she said the only thing that isn't safe is sesame chicken, so I asked about the Terriyaki and she did confirm after checking that it was not GF. So, sometimes we have to educate them. I had Mongolian Beef and Orange chicken entrees with rice side. Very good and will keep post updated if I experience problems.
