Ranked #32 of 705 restaurants in Bakersfield
Cuisines: Asian
Description: 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.

Ate here several times, tried almost all of their rice and noodle menu, all pretty good. Service is a little slow, but will be back. Overall, good Asian (combination of Thai/Vietnamese/Chinese food) restaurant for Bakersfield.

I'm not sure what the hype is. We're not that picky, and all our friends seem to love it. I was thinking we hit them on a bad day until I saw similar complaints here. We tried them for a lunch date one day. The food was mediocre at best. We had the crab rangoon, which was very fishy, the... More

Have been here twice and the customer service is always great. The restaurant is very cool.. You can enjoy a nice date or a business dinner, or a casual meal with friends. The food is consistently delicious and drinks are priced just right. Our server Sean was very helpful when we told him we were on a time crunch as... More

This restaurant is owned and operated by Nick who is local doctor. Found out about it from my nurse friend/family. We have had some excellent events here with some excellent food like prime rib. Some of the food is too hot spice-wise for me. Over all a great place. Is located downtown and parking can be a problem but parking... More

On Saturday, December 21,2013 (one night stay in Bakersfield) we decided to try Chef's Choice Noodle Bar. It was early about 4:30 p.m. and with no reservation for a Saturday night we entered the restaurant. We were seated immediately by the gracious hostess. A quiet booth in an all ready crowded restaurant. The ordered appetizer was crispy wrapped prawns which... More

My husband and I came here for dinner on a Friday night. We were promptly seated (we opted for patio seating since it was a cool evening). Our waitress Snook came right out and took our drink orders. This being our first time here and not familiar with the menu, Snook was very patient in making recommendations and explaining the... More

My husband and I ate their together. We both ordered the crispy noodles. I had chicken and he had beef. My husband really liked his, but I was not impressed. The noodles just looked like the kind you can get at the store. If I go back I will try the stir fry.
