buffet Reviewed by: Ed The staff here are friendly. Food is good value for the price. It is not the best compared to other places but the shrimp, pork ribs and fried rice are worth the trip.
Asia Buffet Reviewed by: Edward From Fontana I like the dinner menu with the salted spicy shrimp with shell, the deep fried crab, baked mussels. The fried rice is tasty. Good value for the money.

About Needles

Needles (Mojave ʼAha Kuloh) is a city located on the western banks of the Colorado River in San Bernardino County, California. It is located in Mojave Valley, which straddles the California-Arizona border. The city is accessible via Interstate 40 and U.S. Route 95. The population was 4,830 at the 2000 census. Needles was named after "The Needles," a group of pointed rocks on the Arizona side of the river. There is a relatively large Mohave community, although they are not the majority.

History

"Ancient petroglyphs, pictographs, intaglios, old trails and stone work sites bear witness to those who came from an earlier time." (Needles Chamber of Commerce)

Mohave people had been living in the area for hundreds, if not thousands, of years prior to the European exploration of the area. In 1859, Fort Mojave was built to protect immigrants to California and other travelers from the Mohave. 

The city was founded in 1883 as a result of the construction of the railroad, which crosses the Colorado at this point. The name is derived from pointed mountain peaks at the south end of the valley.

John Lorimer was the first mayor of Needles. John's son Robert Burns Lorimer established the first Volunteer fire department.

Historic Route 66 passes through the city, lined with motels and other shops from that era. Needles is a tourism and recreation center, a tradition going back for decades.

According to the United States Census Bureau, the city has a total area of 78.1 km² (30.2 mi²). 77.1 km² (29.8 mi²) of it is land and 1.1 km² (0.4 mi²) of it (1.36%) is water.

Nearby cities include Bullhead City, Arizona, Lake Havasu City, Arizona, and Laughlin, Nevada.

Needles, like Death Valley, is known for extreme heat during the summers. Temperatures in Needles routinely reach 120°F (49 °C) in late July and early August, and Needles occasionally sets national or world daily high temperature records.
