The food was quick and hot and the drunken noodle and chicken pot stickers were good. Service was good, I had to ask for a couple of items.

Because of its proximity to my work, this is my go-to Thai restaurant at lunch. Service and food are both consistently good. They have a nice variety of specials on the lunch menu (including three or four Thai curries). They use cloth table cloths and napkins, glass dishes, and metal flatware. Decor is modern. The room is small, so the... More

This "white tablecloth" restaurant is a wonderful place to enjoy delicious Thai food. The portions are generous, so be prepared to take some leftovers home for a late night snack. One of our party was a vegetarian, and she had no trouble finding suitable menu items. I enjoyed the curry sampler, which let me try three of their tasty curries.... More

I went to Thailand last summer and ever since then I've been searching for good Thai food here in the states. I have found it. Blue elephant was fantastic and very flavorful. I ordered spring rolls and the drunk noodles and will get at least two or maybe even three meals from it, so it's a pretty good value.

They extend simplicity and elegance to everything , food , service and ambiance. One of the best Thai food you will ever have. We accidentally discovered this place on our dirive. It was so good, we stopped to grab a bite on our way back. I am a vegetarian and the food was excellent. You also get veggie pot stickers... More

Traveling from Nirthern California towards the desert, Las Vegas or points East, you may find yourself passing through Bakersfield around lunch (or dinner) time. You could have a cheap burger, a forgettable piece of chicken, a bloody steak -- or you could seek out the Blue Elephant for some rally nice Thai food. A broad menu with lots of meat,... More

We order delivery from Blue Elephant frequently and have never been disappointed. Very distinct flavors, well cooked and yummy! They are our go-to place for times when we don't feel like cooking.

Clean, kindly, excellent service. We've been three times now, trying different dishes. I have to admit, my go-to, 'gotta return for' is the Tom Ka soup. Get a big bowl served steaming at your table to share. Yum! Pad thai and curries also very good. One of my favorites in Bakersfield.

Attentive service and great food! We had the spring rolls (the new favorite of my 7 year old), papaya salad (MY new favorite) and the green bean prig king. My friend had the tofu pad Thai, which she says she always gets. I was a little surprised at the cost of the papaya salad until, a few days later, I... More
