Reviews for Simply Bowl

Food was great. But unfortunately this place does not follow covid protocols. I went in there and a man in the kitchen was not wearing a mask At All. When I asked the cashier why the man was not wearing one, he said "He will put one on, he was just eating." But it made me think, why is a cook eating in the kitchen where the food is, and walking around without a mask during the covid pandemic? Oh well, I gave them the benefit of the doubt. The next time I came, 2 employees weren' full review
I loved dining here pre-COVID, and it has been a long time since I've eaten here. I ordered takeout recently, and the food still tasted great! We got a Shoyu Poke Bowl with tuna and a Desert Rose Bowl with salmon (and selected white rice for both bowls). Poke doesn't store well, so it's best to eat it fresh. The sauce adds flavor, and the other items, like seaweed salad, add variety to balance out the fish.

Eco notes: The poke came in red and black plastic bowls with full review
3.5 stars for food/place overall...I couldn't justify a 4 for this place but this place isn't bad at all.

This time we ordered the takoyaki balls (5 pieces), gyoza (4 pieces), and potato croquettes (2 pieces). All were pretty good and had good/authentic flavor to them...just wished the portion sizes to be larger considering the price.

Been here a couple times including pre-COVID as a Cal undergrad and mainly got their chicken wings and bowls. Solid place full review
