Regardless of what the previous reviews have stated, they have almost identical selection for sushi compared to other restaurants if you are looking for rolls or nigiri, you simply need to know what to ask for! They don't have the same itemized menus as other places.
The high point of this restaurant isn't simply the sushi, however, it's the appetizers, desserts AND the atmosphere. Be prepared for noise, though--it's got incredibly loud music and you need to sit close to your dining partner in order to have ANY kind of conversation. They play anime on almost every television, and there is a LOT of them set into walls and pillars. You won't really be able to follow what's going on though, with the animes, since there are no subtitles and you wouldn't be able to hear the speech anyway.
If you DO go here, I highly reccomend getting the Pyramid of Tartar or the Fluffy Crustacean. For dessert, you have to try the wasabi ice cream, Buddha's Favorite, or Sweet Zen Garden. All are DELICIOUS!
Be prepared to spend anywhere from 50 to 100 per person.
PROS: Excellent desserts, appetizers, fun atmosphere
CONS: Noisy, pricy
The Argent hotel is a huge hotel in San Francisco, I believe near downtown.
It's a great location, you walk out the door and take a left and there's nothing but shopping, restaurants, etc. A 7-11 is just around the corner for late night munchies, as is a Del Taco.
The rooms are great, huge, and wonderfully appointed. The beds are comfortable, and depending on how high a floor you're staying on, you get an incredible view.
Staff is very friendly and helpful. The lobby is a bit confusing if looking for the stairs or elevator. I never found the stairs.
PROS: Gorgeous, great location, great staff, affordable for the quality
CONS: They DO have stairs somewhere, right?
I love going to the San Jose Fleamarket--you literally can find anything! They have all sorts of areas--food and groceries, snacks and restaurants, clothing, housewares, rugs, you name it, they probably have it!
The only thing I dislike about the flea market is the fact that it makes traffic in the area REALLY bad, and it's REALLY big--it takes a long time to get from one side of the market to the other, it's easy to get lost, and if you don't know where to look for something you want, you might be looking for hours.
PROS: Tons of venders, competitive prices, everything to buy you can think of
CONS: Easy to get lost, bad traffic, almost too big
I came here to get my eyebrows waxed, and the lady was incredibly helpful and was able to see me fairly promptly without an appoointment.
The wax was pretty inexpensive, about 8 bucks, and I was very pleased with the results.
They also offer hair cuts, makeup, manicures and nail services as well as pedicures. I definately plan to come here again if i need my nails done, brows waxed, or a hair cut.
PROS: Affordable, friendly staff, walk-ins welcome, two entrances
CONS: Small salon, limited parking
This daycare is located near San Carlos, just off Park Avenue and Race Street. It's convenient to 880, 280, and 87.
They have a large air-conditioned playroom for the dogs, with lots of toys and things for dogs to play on. You can also watch your dog on their webcam.
They will feed, bathe, and/or groom your dog for an extra fee. Half a day of daycare is $10, a whole day is $20, and boarding is an additional $20. They are air conditioned and well ventilated to keep the dogs from overheating, and water is always available.
The staff is well trained and knowledgable, as well as incredibly friendly. I've taken my dog here several times and she loves it!
PROS: Affordable, friendly and knowledgable staff, convenient location
CONS: Absolutely no parking whatsoever
When I first moved to California I lived here with a roommate in a beautiful one bedroom loft apartment.
The grounds are gorgeous, there are two swimming pools and a small gym. The laundry rooms are card operated--you need to buy a laundry card from the little machine to use them. Much easier than keeping coins around!
The office staff and office manager are great and have always been nice to me. Maintainence is prompt and helpful. It's also nearby Caltrain as well as relatively close to El Camino Real where there is lots of shopping. Across the street from the complex is a 7-11 and a taqueria.
PROS: Great location, staff, beautiful complex, laundry cards
CONS: Sometimes rude or thoughtless neighbors
I don't like this place at ALL, AEF just a block down the street is a thousand times better.
The staff is rude, it's cramped, poor selection and incredibly expensive.
Given an alternative just a block away, or even the gas station just beside it, you can definately do better than this miserable place. As a sidenote, it's categorized as stock & bond brokers as of writing this review--it's not. It's a grocery/market.
PROS: Not very many...
CONS: Rude staff, cramped store space, poor selection and PRICY!
I had biked here from my house and not only did they bring water for my dog, they brought me a cup of water too! That was a great personal touch.
When I had called earlier that day to make an appointment for my dog to get her shots updated, they were helpful on the phone and it was easy to make an appointment. They also reccomended some other shots that my other vet had never given her, and since I occasionally board my dog I decided to take them--I'd rather her be vaccinated for something she'll never be exposed to than to be under vaccinated and catch something.
I chose this place because it was closer to my home than my usual vet, and I was actually afraid I'd regret choosing convenience over a known quantity--and I don't regret it at all!
The veterinary assistants were great with my dog, they befriended her before taking blood or doing any examinations, so my dog was very calm throughout the whole appointment. The only down side is the vet didn't take time to befriend my dog, so when he tried to look at her teeth she tried to wiggle away from him and was squirmy. He was very informative and helpful when I asked for some advice on my dog's chewing, however.
PROS: Great staff, quick in-and-out, knowledgable, made me and dog comfortable
CONS: Not much parking if you drive, not the best neighborhood
I'm not especially fond of this library despite it being a university library. It's very noisy, people are often using the library computers to PLAY GAMES instead of study and they hog the computers from people who might actually need to study or look something up, and its difficult to figure out their card catalogue system.
I would reccomend De Anza's library over this library any day!
PROS: Can eat food in the library, big, wide selection
CONS: Noisy, rude guests, hard to find things
This hotel is GORGEOUS and I would totally reccomend to anyone who has the money to spend on a swank establishment.
They have easy check in with friendly staff, valet parking, a restaurant and gorgeous rooms. The decor of the lobby and the rooms are just incredible. They also have a turn down service in the evening where they turn down the sheets on your bed for you and also bring you some mints chocolates.
The Moorpark hotel is one of the few hotels that still has a fully stocked honor bar (I rarely see them in Hyatts or Marriotts anymore), but if you don't want the temptation, then just ask them to not give you the key to the bar.
PROS: Great staff, great decor, turn down service, honor bar
CONS: Only 4 stories high unlike most downtown hotels(so no view), a bit pricy
