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.

We order for delivery to our RV. Absolutely excellent food. This is the 2nd time we used the Panda Garden while in Needles. Cannot speak to atmosphere but the telephone service was average; delivery was made right to promised time; prices for both the quality and quantity is at least 'very good'. Wonderful tasty variations being very good to excellent.

This restaurant (now called the Panda garden) serves excellent, truly authentic Chinese food, with no MSG, delicate original tastes that remind me of good cooking in China. Simple, very clean, freshly cooked, plenteous and unreasonably cheap. Needles has few good restaurants for which to boast. Panda Garden is worth a boast or two. 7 Days a week 11:00 am -... More

We ordered delivery. It was fast, hot, and delicious, and plenty of it. Will probably order from there again if we stay in Needles.

Needles is a small desert community with not a lot of quality places to eat but we followed previous TripAdvisor recommendations and stopped at China Garden/Panda Garden for lunch. We were not disappointed. For a reasonable price, you get a delicious meal that fills you up and tastes great. The restaurant is not highly decorated but it's just what we... More

As average as average can be. Average facility - average sanitation - average service - average food - average price. Everything swimming in well seasoned (as in AGE) oil, basic soy, garlic and MSG seasoning. Weak service; everything done in first gear. My order was to go, and it was packaged so the smallest, weakest container was on the bottom,... More
