Hello everyone
We are taking a few weeks break for the summer, and will be back again September 2020 :D

The Big Bowls Team have been working very hard having taster sessions to bring to you a range of delicious wines and beers for you to choose from, to accompany your Big Bowls meal!

This is honestly my No.1 place to eat in London! It's somehow the kind of food your mum/gran would make for the whole family after you did well in your school exam and I wouldn't be surprised if this hidden gem becomes critically acclaimed within a few years. 100 out of 100!

Another excellent meal for the family today👏👏. The generous portions are very compatible with the name of the premises. The apple pie milkshake 👌👌👌👌👌. Will definitely return there again in the future.

We have been coming here since Big Bowls opened and we are always blown away by the great flavours. Our favourites are the Beef Pho and the BBQ Chicken to name a few. The portion sizes are perfect and reception is always great. Lovely family run business who appreciate their customers. We tried their freshly made doughnuts and I was SOLD!!! It will be a new addition to our regular orders.

About us

Formerly running as Wokasaurus in a food trailer by Canada Water Station, we have upgraded to a relaxing family friendly cafe restaurant in the heart of Rotherhithe SE16 since August 2018. We are Big Bowls Cafe!

We serve Asian Fusion comfort foods, which you can eat in (usually served in a Big Bowl !) or takeaway in a environmentally friendly paper box/soup cup. 

Telephone orders for collection or for table reservations are very welcome.

Please flick through the pictures for some examples of the dishes we serve, and for our current menu.

How to get here:

A leisurely walk from: 
Surrey quays
Canada Water

Buses: (from Canada Water Station)   

Alight at Shipwright Road, we are a short stroll through the underpass, next to The Ship and Whale pub. 

There is street parking available in the vicinity. 

A very short stroll from Greenland Pier
