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

We'll prepared Thai and Chinese food, definitely worth tracking dowN. It is on the edge of town, quite a way from I 40, but worth tracking down for good Asian food in an unexpected place. 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.

We were driving through from California to Arizona and looked to see what was to eat in Needles and found this to be the highest rated restaurant in the city - reviewers were right! This place is delicious! It isn't the fanciest place by any means but the food is unreal; best thai food I've ever had. The owner is... More

Went to Cook's on our way to the Grand Canyon. Didn't expect much, but the food was very very good, and the owner made the meal especially for us and our likings. Just tell her what you like and she will make it for you. Almost like coming to a private home! Definitely recommended

In a forlorn strip mall, we discovered a new destination for Thai food. Von is the owner and cook and she will discuss what you like, what your heat tolerance is and bring back a Thai masterpiece and at very low price. The ambience adds to the surprise because it is bare bones formica and anything but fancy. Next time... More
