This restaurant is hidden in a shopping center, just south of the Y. The restaurant is very plain. Exposed air conditioning ducts, exposed rafters, etc. The food is excellent. Staff all appear to be oriental, and all speak with a very heavy accent. They are helpful, and offer unasked for suggestions (You want the fried rice don't you?) Service was... More

Complete oriental menu and friendly staff make for a very nice lunch. The food is very good and the price is easy on the pocket book, better to go either a little before noon or a little after because it does a good business at the lunch hour.

When you think of Bandera, TX, oriental food doesn't come to mind. The China Bowl is a nice exception. A plain looking establishment on the outside and very clean and roomy on the inside. The staff is very friendly and eager to please. The menu selection is quite diverse and the Combination Appetizer Platter is a Meal of it's own.... More

Usually the kitchen is faster than the waitstaff. The sweet & sour sauce is the best I've had in the area. I enjoy the chicken corn soup and fried egg noodle "chips". The Kung Pao Triple (shrimp, chicken & beef) are too spicy for my preference but if you ask for mild they will accommodate. Hit or miss as to... More

We have visited many times now... My husband is not a fan, at all. Our kids like it, a lot, and I'd say it's just okay. Service is good.

The China Bowl is a nice Chinese restaurant in Boerne. Food is good but nothing that distinguishes it from other similar restaurants. Menu is typical. Decor is typical. Service is good. Prices are reasonable. The food good but could have been hotter (temperature-wise). Mine was only lukewarm. Should use heated plates.
