Eleven of us went to lunch at the Blue Elephant and everyone loved what they ordered. We pretty much covered the lunch menu. Service was very good and our food was served hot.

Very authentic Thai food. Very delicious and fresh. We ordered tom yum soup, duck panang curry, and chicken cashew stir fry. Everything was tasty. The steamed rice was piping hot. Satisfying meal for Asians craving hot food and I'm sure non-Asians too. Service was friendly.

I have been there few times, the food is always good. I got the sizzling seafood which comes with rice and seafood soup, the food is spicy which I love. Their Thai ice tea is very good. It is a tiny restaurant with simple clean settings, the staff is friendly, polite and fast, I would definitely go back again.

We usually get this entrée, it just tastes delicious every time. We also love the brown rice, it is very different than what we usually get at other restaurants.

I can always count on Blue Elephant for fast service and good food. I usually have the green curry, which is very good, but decided to branch out this time. I tried the spicy green beans with chicken. It was an interesting dish, with a thick chili paste adorning the beans and chicken. My companion had the garlic green beans... More

Overall, I am not impressed with the service nor the food. The act of ordering the food over the telephone was painful. The 2 food items that I was attempting to order required more than 12 minutes to complete. An crab rangoon and Pad See Ew are less than complicated. $28 and 45 minutes later, the food was flavorless and... More

We've been eating here for years. The service is always great. The food is even better! We always order and share and still have leftovers to take home. I highly recommend Blue Elephant in Bakersfield as a BEST CHOICE for any occasion.

Still eating here often. Good healthy food, decent wait staff. Not as busy during dinner time, but the prices are higher.
