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.

Love this place!

The food is always good and so is the Thai Iced Tea! I often get rice or noodles with a little spice and some type of meat. It is always excellent!

This place was the highest rated "Asian" restaurant on TripAdvisor for Bakersfield and so we thought we'd give it a try. It is amazing how different a picture of a menu item can be from its real-life presentation. We opted for the three-appetizer choice and expected three plates - not the case. Looked like something fresh out of a frozen... More

I've never been disappointed when I come here. Although I usually stick to the same 1 or 2 things I like in the menu. But quality of food is very good. Service is very hit and miss depending on the time you go in but that's understandable because they do get very very busy. All in all a big thumbs... More

The food is really tasty besides the wontons with the avocado, you can skip that, it's very mushy and flavorless. The pork is great, try to get a side of the coconut rice to offset the spicy papaya salad the tastes of the two is amazing! Skip the hot tea, nothing special, service was so-so, but the pork was really... More

Really interesting mix of 'noodles' dishes. Incorporates an eclectic mix of Asian favorites - while bringing in a few other cuisines. Been there twice - pleased with the food and service both times.

Can't say anything bad about this place, it ticks all the boxes and more. We were stopping in Bakersfield on the way north, after a lengthy drive we wanted something satisfying yet relatively light.. Noodles it was to be! We both had the tom yum soup, what arrived before us was a bowl larger than my head filled with lovely... More

We have been hearing about this place for awhile now and finally went for lunch today. What idiots we have been for not going sooner. Food and service was excellent! We started with the Fried Green Beans, which was wonderful, the dipping sauce had just a little kick to it and it was great. My husband had the Pad Thai... More

We stopped in for lunch but I think we just had dinner. The food was great, portion was large and service was outstanding. We will be coming here again.

One of my all-time favorites in Bakersfield. The combination rice plate is amazing. I suggest this place to everyone. Try the drunkin duck!

We loved it, portion sizes were so big we couldn't finish without risk of blowing up, but that may also be due the delicious appetizers we couldn't resist. We had a late lunch, service was a bit slow but they were pleasant and very busy.
