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.

This place is an Asian fusion restaurant that serves one of the best thai food in Bakersfield. I got the duck curry and it was surprisingly good. Depending on what you choose, you can crank up the hotness levels pretty well here. For the value, you get a great atmosphere. The serving staff is very friendly, and the food tastes... More

I was so surprized when I walked in, didn't expect the ambiance to be so nice. Booths, light and airy, plenty of space. The menu offered so many options that it was hard to pick. Went with Pho and it was perfect but I did think it could have fed a small family! My coworker had a chicken dish that... More

The Chef's Choice Noodle Bar located in downtown Bakersfield has a big selection of Asian fusion food at really great prices. Their service is excellent and I've never had a problem getting a seat since the place is so big. Although I've had better Asian food they have a big selection of Chinese, Japanese, and Thai items that can't be... More

They have different types of Asian food which I love. I love their drunken noodles (chow fun noodles) and glass noodles. Panang curry has good flavor but a little watery. Otherwise a good go to for Asian food. Modern Asian food with a nice romantic ambiance but also large enough space for big parties.

We wanted to go out to dinner before seeing Fleetwood Mac. It seemed that many others had the same idea. We had been to Chef's Choice Noodle Bar before and enjoyed the meal and service. Upon arriving this time there were about ten others waiting for a table. We were told that it would be about 25 minutes. It was... More

One of my favorite Chinese restaurants in Bakersfield. The food is always very consistent. I've never had a bad meal yet. I'm there at least once a week. The drunken noodles with Duck is my favorite. They are also working on having a pretty decent wine list.

I love the authentic Thai food here! They always have a variety of specials offered and most recently we tried some new ones and weren't disappointed - Raw Oysters and Scallops on the half shell, Kobe Beef Ribeye, Roasted Duck, and Raspberry Cheesecake! Great place for groups or for a date. You can enjoy your experience with great service and... More
