Place is the the center of downtown. Can seat where you want / open. Servers are healthful and nice. As soon as you are seated a menu are given . Turn around of food from time you order and it is served are quick. We went during lunch rush hour. Seen a good turn around/ traffic but due to good service and quick service people didn't even have to line up or wait for long. Food are delicious, fresh and amount of serving of food and price are reasonable. Been here couple of times and this place always delivers. I highly recommends this restaurant if you are craving Thai food. - Me and my daughter ordered Phad Thai, Penang curry chicken, Tom yang and drunken noodles. Their version sticky rice with mango are good too.

My top spot for Thai food. Service is excellent even when they are busy. This place has a great atmosphere. Food is like a restaurant in Jacksonville I loved.

This place was the perfect introduction to Thai food for my boyfriend. I chose this place based on location and the excellent reviews. He literally said that it was the best meal he has ever had! We shared the Pad Thai w/tofu and Pineapple Curry, also w/tofu and both dishes were amazing! Their service, cleanliness and prices were also great. We'll definitely be back!

I was seated very quickly and served my thai iced tea. I ordered the regular green curry (not lunch special) with white rice, very spicy.The curry was out of this world, so was the tea. I have to go back here again and again. My waitress was very nice and friendly. Please go here if you like Thai food. I highly recommend it.

Solid Thai food. Perfect amount of spice on the spicy food. Sometime I find that people make them white people spicy, not this place. They put that stank on it.

Amazing flavors with fresh vegetables, meats, soup stocks, & fried finger foods.An authentic Thai cuisine, at an amazing price for large portions.Shimp fried rice is one of the best dishes, made with actual whole prawns.Chow mein & orange chicken are Thai variations of Asian food with loads of savory flavors & freshness.

This place is top notch for delicious food and cleanliness! If you love Thai food or you're just thinking of trying it for the first time, you can't go wrong here. It's casual, delicious, clean and friendly! It gets busy at lunch, so if you're looking to relax and try it for the first time I recommend going for dinner. But if you already know you like Thai food and you're looking for a quick, casual meal, this is a great downtown spot!

Review №27

Pretty different flavors than any other Thai restaurant I've visited (and I eat a LOT of Thai).Sweeter, and less spicy than I prefer. It wasn't bad, it just wasn't very good.

Authentic Thai flavors, quality ingredients and healthy portion sizes at an affordable price. I ordered the yellow curry and was very satisfied. The spices were perfect, the rice and meat were high grade and there was a plentiful serving of vegetables. Their lunch special is one of the best I've seen thus far and their Thai tea was delicious!

My favorite Thai Food Spot in all of Bakersfield. Actually, the best Thai food I've had so far. I always get the drunken noodle, or the Yum beef salad. I've had the wings once and they were great! Pretty authentic Thai Cuisine for sure. They have a great lunch special everyday. I think its from 11-2 but I could be wrong. I've had the prik King before too and it was great. Pretty much everything I've had from this spot was fantastic. But that yum beef salad though! Fantastic! They have a pretty decent selection of Asian style beers and their tighty is really good as well. I'm so glad this place opened and that it has stayed open throughout the years. If you want good Thai food in Bakersfield, this is the spot to go. Like I said, best I've had in town

I've been there three times now. The very first time was when they opened up and the food was amazing. I ordered 3 appetizers and a main course. Now the business was sold and the menu changed. I was unhappy with the changes and the quality of the food as well as the service. Even though they were busy and understaffed tonight I had to ask for a refill of ice tea. The quality of the food was poor. I asked for spicy and notice it was not spicy and drenched it in sarachca sauce which also took away from the taste. When I received my $27.24 bill for just me I noticed on the receipt it started not spicy on my order. I know I said spicy because several of the people in my group started to tell me you like your food real spicy. Told myself I would not be back after the second time but gave them another chance and now know I will not return.

I am honestly astounded by the level of sheer incompetence the staff possess. Its hard to even put into words. I wanted to tear my hair out. At one point, the waitress who took our cards to charge us literally physically left the building.I swear a learning disabled tortoise could've done a better job.Also, the food was god f___ing awful.Don't waste your time here. Better restaurants around.

My GF and have been to many Thai restaurants up and down California most of which have been so delicious I feel like I'm in Thailand. Jasmine And The New Taste........well...... new yes because Thai food this bland is new to me. Our Panang chicken was very watery and the veggies had a glass look to them, the kind of look when you cook with frozen produce. Also, had an inadequate amount of coconut milk. The Pad See Ew we ordered felt it was missing its brown sugar/oyster sauce component and was only seasoned with soy sauce. The most egregious part of all.....the fish cake.... a staple among many Asian cultures, cooked lovingly by grandmothers (including mine)......cooked unloving and possibly by a microwave used by grandmothers. The texture was like gnawing on a rubber gasket synonymous with being frozen then overcooked when reheated. I'm sure the fish cake could have been used as a hockey puck in case the world supply of hockey pucks is ever depleted. The staff is friendly and nice...I wish the food was just as warm and inviting.

We've been there three times now & it ALWAYS so delicious. I have never had such amazing service & food. They're always so friendly &actually remember you when you return. If you've never had Thai food or are just look for some great Thai, try Jasmine's, they REALLY are the best in town, on our opinion, you HAVE to try Jasmine's, you'll love it!!! Heading there today to introduce my Thai newbie husband to the best Thai food in town.

Great Thai food!My husband and I went here for lunch and were pleasantly surprised by the atmosphere in this restaurant. The food was delicious, staff was friendly and we did not have to wait long for our meal.

Review №61

Give it one star because they cutted the meal portion a lot. Instead of curry you get kind of a soup with lots of water, veggies and galapeno and almost no meat with a small portion of rice. That worths around $4 not $13!!! Will never go back.

Our server was very prompt to seat us and take our drink order and was very enthusiastic throughout the meal. The restaurant is very clean and decorated well. I was not able to try any of their curries or noodle dishes but based on the chicken satay and crying tiger beef I will be returning to try out their whole menu. The location is the perfect downtown spot because it is within walking distance from the courthouse, city hall, and the padre.

My boyfriend and I are from North Carolina and my auntie introduced us to this restaurant in June. I will be completely honest and say that this is by far the best Thai food I've had!! We ordered pho, drunken noodles, & crab/lobster fried rice.. all the dishes were absolutely delicious! I hope this restaurants stays open for a very long time! We'll be back from NC!Tbh, for all the Thai authentic lovers, you will not be disappointed! Feel free to check the pictures on my IG: sunlightchang

This place is awesome. You can never go wrong with the Drunken Noodles. I personally like the Curry dishes, but my wife says they are horrible. You have to like curry, but if you do, they have the best Yellow Curry around. If you aren't sure what to get and haven't had Thai, get the Drunken Noodles first. Next time you go, try something new. With so much on the menu, trying new things is part of the fun.
