“Wow! Shocked by the service!!”
Review of Panda Garden

Panda Garden
Ranked #4 of 26 Restaurants in Needles

Restaurant details
Reviewed 24 June 2018 via mobile

When we asked our hotel to recommend some place for dinner, he suggested Panda Garden. He said the food was great and the servings were generous.
Okay. We headed over to the restaurant. When we walked in, we were greeted with, "You sit," followed by being ignored. Around us, locals were shouting between tables, so it seemed everyone was well acquainted.
The waiter returned with menus and asked us if we wanted a drink. He came back and said, "What you want?" We wanted to leave is what we wanted, but it was too late to escape! We ordered noodles and vegetables. So mediocre. Maybe if we felt the least bit welcome, it may have tasted better, but maybe not.
Bottom line--medium food, poor ambiance, horrible service!

I have to say we had low expectations for a restaurant in Needles. There is really not much going on in Needles. We went to Panda Garden tonigbt. Our dinner was really yummy. I had mongolian beef that was really yummy. The other ladies had walnut shrimp, two different kinds of Mu Shu, there was a beef lomein and vegetable friend rice. We all really loved our dinners. The price was reasonable too. What a great gem in a sleepy town.

Good place to eat and great prices. Looks a little out dated but very clean. Very friendly and attentive staff.

I say “surprisingly,” because we ordered our food as take-out while at a nearby RV park. The food arrived piping hot and tasted very good. Additionally, the food was plentiful!
