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.

I truly do miss this restaurant for some good ole' Thai food. I have tried a variety of the rice and noodle dishes, however my favorite is the drunken noodles. I usually get it with the Tofu as I like the way they cook it, but have also tried it with duck which is just as good. Its got a... More

After eating here several times in the past, I tried something different this time, the Pad See-Ew, which is noodles in a broth with vegetables and your choice of protein. It was very good. Still like the Orange Chicken the best. Only uncomfortable issue this time was the lack of heat where we were seated on a particularly cold evening.... More

I went here with a friend for lunch and loved it! I have heard great things but finally was able to go myself and it was great! I had the spicy noodles and boy were they spicy but oh so good. I will return and would love to try something new each time.

I decided to try this out for lunch and found it very good. I haven't been back, because it is downtown and not close to my area, but the food is worth a trip if you like noodles, and like them done in many different ways. I recommend this restaurant for a nice lunch, and a dinner with your loved... More

I come here often because it's one of the few restaurants in town with duck as a regular protein choice, but today i thought i would try a dish i typically avoid in a restaurant - sweet and sour chicken. i was surprised by the very light, but very flavorful sauce on this dish, and the chicken was thoroughly cooked...

I was in Bakersfield on business staying at the Marriott. Sitting at the bar and the bartender recommended Chefs Choice Noodle Bar for Thai Food. Kudos to the bar tender AND Chefs Choice! I had the Jungle Curry for dinner and it was AMAZING. It was like an explosion of flaming flowers in my mouth. So good I returned for... More

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
