Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

I ordered to go and the food was very good. I would for sure give it a try. I had the orange lichen and it was made right. The pan fried dumplings were not house made but were decent.

My wife and I stopped with our grand-daughter for a few appetizers during the late afternoon. Red Bowl used to have 1/2 price appetizers and certain sushi during happy hour a few years ago. I asked our very nice waitress if they still have 1/2...price items. She went and asked to verify with someone. She came back and said that all appetizers were still 1/2 price, but not any sushi. We ordered about 5 different appetizers. When the bill came, only 1 appetizer was 1/2 price, the rest were full price. We asked about that and the waitress went again to ask someone. She told us that only a few appetizers were 1/2 price, but not all of them. She even mentioned some appetizers that were not on the full menu. They could have at least offered a little reduction on the bill or something, but, all we got was a "sorry about that". I looked on their website to find a place to contact the owners/managers to discuss this issue with them, but there is no contact info.....thus, I can here to share.More

The food was good in spite of the rice being cold. The service was subpar. My waitress had no personality and took forever to bring my card back. I had to ask another waitress for it.

My family and I have been going to red bowl for years. Consistently enjoyed their menu, atmosphere, and service. No, we’re not regulars that know the staff well and get better service for it. I couldn’t name one employee. Prices are not bad. I don’t...understand the bad reviews. At any restaurant, you’ll sometimes get worse service than usual, or try a dish that disappoints, but I would confidently recommend Red Bowl to anyone.More

If I could give zero stars I would. An absolute SCAM our waitress conned us out of $100+ for Terrible food and service. If you're looking to get ripped off for low grade sushi that taste like dog food and then be lied to about...pricing and then ask to speak to a manager who was actually in fact not the manager but impersonating the manager then this is your place. Enjoy the food and service it beats hunger by a hair. To the owner Wai Sim please give your employees a course on customer service and maybe do background checks on your employees before they continue to steal from customers.More

This happen at the Red Bowl in Beacon Dr. Greenville, SC. The kitchen staff were arguing very loudly to the point we felt unsafe. The waiters seem to be use to this and just stayed near the kitchen entrance giggling and talking among themselves. I...had to ask if our food was going to be served anytime soon since after waiting for longer than 15 minutes we didn't have any updates. We were the only two customers in the restaurant. Since our food was taking long because of the argument taking place in the kitchen a waiter brought us complimentary spring rolls. The food finally came and it was as good as usual, and the kitchen fight came to an end.More

I've always liked this restaurant, but I'm not eating here again until you bring back actual silverware. Dishwashers sanitize silverware. The tiny plastic forks are ridiculous.

New go-to place for oriental fare. Had heard great things about Red Bowl, so took the family recently. We all decided to get a combo dish, I think it was called a Red Bowl Box, because it was served in a square wooden tray with...compartments, and included an entree, fried rice, choice of spring roll, and a serving of sushi. We all ordered the Bang Bang Shrimp as our entree, and wow! Superb fried tempura shrimp with a spicy sauce that was just right. We rarely have sushi, but it came with the meal, so we had the house special which was cooked shrimp sushi, not raw, and as a result, my wife ate sushi for the first time, and liked it. The spring rolls were good, served with sauces and mustard. All-in-all a very enjoyable meal, . . . and we already returned, and ordered the same meal again, LOL.More

This Red Bowl has been here for a while and is showing its age. But the food is fairly good and prices are reasonable. Bento box is a good deal.

Was never sure if it was a take out place or sit down, or whether a sushi joint or serious Asian, so we stopped in on Sunday when we had 40 minutes between church and movie @ the camelot across the street. We were in/out...in less then 35 minutes, it was fresh tasty and plentiful. The lunch entree (7.75) includes egg roll and your choice of rice....good sized portions, big enough to split. Wife had the sesame chic..i had chic & broc, really fresh and still sizzling at the table..out the door on time, belly full and smiles all around for $16.00+....I usually think fast Asian food at Panda Express, but adding Red Bowl to the rotation.More

So the four of us ate here tonight. And had another so so meal. Not bad, not good. Tonight the wait service was slow and restaurant wasnt busy. Their curries that my wife and i had, were just uneventful. They lacked flavor. Portion was large...but that is about it. I liked the zucchini but wished meal had a stronger curry flavor. My daughter had a bento box which came with sushi. The sushi was bland at best. Only eat here when I get out voted. Luckily it isnt that often.More

I haven’t really liked this place in the past because it’s not really Chinese food. But it’s relatively inexpensive and if you accept the fact that they cater to American tastes, it’s not bad. Some good vegetarian options.

Having been to the Red Bowl in Clemson I was happy to see one during my Greenville trip. My guest and I enjoyed both our dishes. Hers was happily crispy and mine had perfect heat. Will return next time I’m in Greenville.

My husband and I enjoyed an early supper here with our adult son. We ordered spring rolls and split the Royal Dinner Special (a good mix of surf and turf with Asian vegetables), and that was tasty and filled us both up. My son ordered...something extra special spicy, and he said it wasn't nearly as spicy as he'd hoped (he ate only half but took the leftovers home). We've eaten here numerous times in the past and never had a meal that didn't taste good. There's a good variety of seating (regular booths, tables, smaller more private room behind the bar, and larger booths in the balcony area below the huge mural of the Hong Kong harbor). The food is reasonably priced as well. Love the plating, which often has a spray of carrot strips with a flower.More

My daughter just started a job on Pleasantburg so we have been lunching at least once a week and trying new spots. We have eaten here twice and love it. The restaurant is clean, staff is friendly and the food is delicious. We have tried...the sushi 🍣 and sesame chicken. She ordered a bento box before and it looked awesome. So much food we could have shared it.More
