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.
