Recently we went back to the Chef's choice. We were happy to see that the menu had improved significantly. The service was good and the meal better than average served on time.

We were driving from LA to Sacramento and were hungry. This spot stays open until 10 pm and catered to vegetarians so we decided to go. Loved the curry, salad and the vegetarian starter options. Great place to take kids. They were so accommodating and flexible with our order. Definitely recommended!

Very nice ambiance; great, friendly service; not so good food. My mom, kids, and I stopped for lunch while passing through Bakersfield. It sounded promising because of the large variety of Asian cuisines offered (we haven't met an Asian cuisine we didn't like), and because of the glowing reviews we read on this site. We ordered our favorites: chicken gyoza,... More

Just had a great dinner here. Had some great appetizers - try the wrapped pork- very good. Tons of main course options. Lots of meat and seafood to choose from. I would recommend the Combination platter if you are hungry, bring it here. Desert is also good to try . Noodle bar does a good job with this too.

Interesting mix of Thai food, with other regional flavors. The food is fresh and always well prepared. Try the seafood dishes, but take heed of the spice. When you want it hot, it gets there in a hurry--but its well worth it!

We were visiting our kids and one night we babysat so they could go to dinner. They went to the Chef's Choice Noodle Bar and had such a good time we decided to try it ourselves. It was worth the visit. Liz, our server, gave us a great tour of the menu, explaining items and giving her list of favorites,... More

I went here with a friend for lunch and the service was great. Our waiter was very attentive and knowledgeable. Our food arrived hot and fresh. The flavors were great. I will be coming back.

I have eaten at this wonderful restaurant a number of times and am always pleased with the service and the quality of food. As a vegetarian, it is not easy to find a restaurant that offers a variety of choices as well as a high quality in taste. Centrally located in the downtown area, it makes it easy for people... More

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

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.
