Thai, Chinese, Japanese, Indonesian as well a kinda american-asian fusion. Not good, not bad. I liked the avocado wonton, didn't much care for the ramen. Light and bright interior. Booths and tables. Service friendly and professional. More of lunch than dinner

This was my first visit to this restaurant, and it won't be the last! Great menu selection. From salads, soups, and assorted Thai dishes. It was busy on my visit, but there was still room for many people. Service was good, and I highly recommend.

Lots of different choices on the menu including soups, noodle dishes and stir fry. We had pad Thai, which was excellent and pho, also very good. Service was excellent and very friendly. The place was busy on a Friday night but we were seated immediately at about 6:30 pm. We were surprised to see that they now serve alcohol, which... More

Pan Thai is always very good. Menu clearly shows what dishes are spicy, or could be ordered with less spice

I have dined here about a half dozen times. The dumpling are a good start. The ramens are full of flavor. The fried rice with duck was a great surprise-- earthy and spice. Great service and can handle large party's. Full bar and large beer selections.

This place has a large variety from fried rice to ramen, to noodles of course. It's a nice establishment, very pleasant atmosphere. The food is delicious. If I had a recommendation it would be the drunken noodles. It's also vegetarian friendly.

I had never been to a noodle bar before. I like Asian food, but noodles not so much. My daughter and husband love this restaurant. It is beautifully decorated, the waitstaff is excellent, and the food is great.

Drunken Noodle is great but all dishes I have tried (been there 10 + times) are good. The spice rack (I like it hot) adds some kick.

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.
