Pleasant surprise in Needles

When I pulled up to the place I seriously questioned whether or not to go in. However choices are limited in Needles and my adventurous spirit and hungry stomach told me to go for it. It was definitely a good choice. The owner/cook knows how to make a tasty Thai meal. Not knowing what to choose... read more

Highly recommend this place to anyone passing by, especially if you're completely over the typical fast food/diner food that's out here. My husband and I have spent time teaching in Thailand, so we are a bit particular about our Thai restaurants. We were so happy with the food, we tried to convince the owner and her husband to move to... More

We stopped at Cooks Cuisine on our way from Texas to Anaheim. The food was made fresh to order and the owners were very friendly. It is definitely worth a try.

The yellow chicken curry and coconut soup were so good that the next time we pass through Needles we will try another couple of dishes, anticipating more excellent food. It's small and lacking in atmosphere, but it's clean and comfortable and the couple running the business are friendly. Meals are prepared fresh after you order so it tales a little... More

One of our favorites! Best Thai food around. Make all orders fresh at the time of order. A little bit of wait time, but WORTH IT!!

Bad day in Havasu became a good day in Needles thanks to Cook's Cuisine. Amazing food, the seating is tight not many tables but that does not make a restaurant... So if you're not down for a hole in the wall. Don't bother... If you like amazing food and can be patient (the Hostess is also the waitress, and the... More

We enjoyed our food - green curry chicken and green curry tofu. Nicely prepared. However, the service was bit too friendly without being particularly efficient. The table seemed a bit sticky, as were the menus. The waiter was wearing an outsized white T-shirt and a pair of baggy black shirts. I'd opt for takeout. A two star motel room would... More

We found Cooks on Yelp and felt like we were a guest in the owners home. She talked to us and then went to the kitchen and made the best green curry I've ever tasted. Nothing fancy but fresh food made with love

This was a complete surprise to find such a gem out on Route 66. Appearances are deceiving - it is a very plain looking place. However... Super fresh tasty food cooked to your order - level of spiciness, ingredients, portion size. The owner chef is lovely and very helpful. We try to eat as much Thai as we can find... More
