Looking for delivery in Needles?

After a hard day's drive wanted food delivered to our hotel. The hotel desk recommended Panda Gardens. They did a great job on the food. Their prices were more than reasonable. They delivered in the time frame they said they would. Food arrived hot and very tasty.

Considering Needles is a long way from anywhere, and a very long way from a Chinese neighborhood, this restaurant is a welcome break from fast-food and steak-houses. That said, the menu serves the typical dumbed-down-for-Americans dishes found in so many Chinese cafes in the U.S. The Hunan chicken had a generous amount of mildly spicy chicken and mixed vegetables.

Service can be a little slow, but the food and the portions are definitely worth it. They will even create dishes for you. Beer available. Good value.

Good fare at a fair price in a very small town. I am local (20 miles) and this is a nice change to escape fast-food diners, eat in a tasty family-run restaurant and see some smiles. It's situated just a few yards from I-40 access so you can even have your food boxed and chew it all the way to... More

We were fed up with american food, I mean hamburgers, meat, fries, etc. so chinese food was what we were looking for and this small restaurant, that looks at historic route 66, did not disappoint our expectations, especially when the bill came... Do not miss it out if you appreciate chinese cuisine.

liked the atmosphere, very oriental's like and food was great, cleaning up after the kid's not the best. All in all I had a great trip and enjoyed my stay at the knights inn and felt compelled to writes some reviews.

Found this restaurant thru Trip Advisor; glad we had reviews to rely upon because other wise I may have just driven by. Nothing to look at from the outside, inside is nice in a sparse kind of way. Food was delicious. Crisp spring rolls, good egg drop soup, they come with the lunch specials. I had the vegetable egg foo... More

We wanted a quick bite close to our motel and weren't disappointed when we picked China Garden. I enjoyed the food tremendously, but it certainly wasn't a dating restaurant atmosphere. Get down to business, eat your food and enjoy it. After a day of riding a motorcycle through the desert I could have done with a beer or two that... More

The Lemon chicken was excellent, we enjoyed our dinner. Easy to find, clean place with good service. Just remember it is now called Panda Garden.

This restaurant was close to the hotel, not filled with children and had air conditioning, all of which we required although not particularly in that order. The food is delicious. It’s your typical Chinese fare, nothing cutting edge, but tasted fresh with well-balanced flavors. A nice change of pace from typical dinners on the road.
