My husband and I went there for sunday lunch and had: 2 Tsing Taos, ice tea, Mongolian beef with a cup of white rice, seafood stir fry noodle and dumpling. Greasy but tasty, especially the dumpling. Total bill was ±$55, a bit pricey considering the food & atmosphere. Atmosphere: dark & gloomy, a bit old, family style. Waiters were nice.... More

The Great Castle has been serving excellent Chinese food for many years. You must try their pot stickers! Wonderful soups! Kung Poa shrimp! Hot spicy shredded pork! Walnut chicken. So many great dishes. Great lunch menu, too!

We have lived in Bakersfield for more than 25 years and have probably eaten food from the Great Castle over 500 times. I have travelled to China and I am convinced that the two chefs at the Great Castle compete impressively with most restaurants in their homeland. In the final analysis, it is the chef and the quality of the... More

One of my families favorite to eat in Bakersfield. You have to try the Walnut Sprimp. It is fantastic. Anything you order will be great. Friendly staff.

Busy Saturday night, but the staff was attentive, efficient and nice. I ordered a shrimp dish but wanted more veggies. No problem! They obviously use lots of fresh ripe food to bring out the flavor instead of msg and salt. Many choices on the menu and the place is busy enough to support them. Will definitely go here on the...

Great Castle is a step above your typical Chinese restuarant. there is always something deliciosu cooking here. I am a big hot and sour soup fan, and I love theirs. Mostly everything else is good. One big surprise for me is their seafood, which is always fresh and yummy. I hesitate to even try seafood at most Chinese restaurants. They... More

Family style serving with plenty left over for breakfast the next morning. "Their" family all works their butt off to make sure that "Your" family has a great meal and wonderful night-out experience. The parking lot is patrolled by on-site security which is comforting. I am glad we chose the Great Castle it reminded me of eating at Chinese Restaurants... More
