Excellent Thai in an unexpected place

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... read 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

Near the bridge to Arizona (not the freeway bridge 10 miles farther along. I had chkn curry, my partner Pad Thai. We both left happy... More

This is a tiny, unpretentious restaurant in a strip shopping center in Needles, California. The menu is mostly Thai. They can accommodate your request for "not too spicy," while still making the dish very savory. No alcohol license, but the do a lot of takeout/delivery, so some people may want to take it back to their room/home.
