Unfortunately, this place is over priced and serves small portions. Food is good, but not much of it.

The food is better than from the average Chinese restaurant, especially when you arrive at a remote town like Bakersfield. My meal was definitely not the wrong choice. I had a bowl of lettuce and beef salad. The sourness,sweetness and spice were at a good...More

Pretty decor. Lots to choose from on the menu. Our server could not answer a single question. She didn’t offer to get someone more knowledgeable. We went for basic curry. I think Asian buffets can do it better. Literally, 10 servers standing around doing nothing....More

The place was lovely. The service impeccable. Variety of Thai dishes was expansive. Prices reasonable for the area and portion sizes. Parking was a pain at 430pm on a Friday.

This restaurant just opened a week ago and is getting rave reviews, including my own. There are so few asian restaurants in Bakersfield and this one is not only a welcomed addition but the food is the best I have eaten outside of Thailand. They are introducing new and authentic Thai dishes each week. I highly recommend this new establishment and hope Trip Adviser will follow up on this one. The owner welcomes any and all criticism and makes adjustments as requested. His email address is available on the facebook website under noodle bar.
