Wife's Choice!

I love their food and my wife loves it even more! We've been coming here for about 8 years now and the ladies know exactly how we like our food and most often they know what we are going to have... sometimes I throw them a curve ball about my order! This is the best Chinese food in all of... read more

I have been eating at the Great Castle for 25 years. Sure it has the same decor, looks a little bit like a miniature golf course castle, and is not in the greatest part of town, but the food is always really good. Love the Walnut Shrimp, mixed chow mein with pan fried noodles, sweet and sour soup, sizzling rice... More

We went out for a late dinner around 9pm and most restaurants were closed. This restaurant was also about to close but warmly welcomed us and treated us nicely. Their food is really good. We asked for extra hot food and we got what we wanted. I'm really satisfied with their food and service.

This place has a ton of choices to choose from. It's a bit pricey but the quality of the food it great! I took my family for dinner and we had plenty of food left over to have a second dinner!

So many good dishes! The pot stickers are the best around. All the ingredients are fresh and tasty. The shrimp are crisp. Try the house special calamari!

The food is very good. A good mixture of authentic Chinese food and some "Chinese dishes" invented in USA. A little on the pricey side, but the fact that at least 3 past-US Presidents have dined here should justify their higher price (maybe??). The service was top-notched. Very friendly and efficient. Highly recommend the Walnut Shrimp, Mongolian Beef, but would... More

I've been to several Chinese restaurants in California. And now I've been to 7 in Bakersfield alone. This by far has the best fried rice and shrimp chow mein that I have eaten.

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
