First off do not come here if you like rolls- try Kiku Sushi for that. Azuma has great teriyaki dishes as well as sashimi that is always fresh and delicious. I also like their Agadashi tofu and their green tea is delicious.
I really like Olarn and they are the by far the best Thai place I've eaten at in the South Bay so far. They have delicious duck plates and I also really like their fried rice. I always get the thai iced tea as well.
I love this place! I have to say now that the portions are huge so if you have a small stomach bring somebody to spilt a wrap with. They have delicious wraps and my favorite is the Baja Chicken one. I also love love their smoothies.
I came here to take photos with my family and they did a lot of creative poses and took care to make sure that the poses were flattering. I would not come here for the regular photo development simply because its not as competitively priced.
I like Jade Galore because they have good service and a huge selection of gold/jade. They also have a nice selection of a variety of watches, including Rolex. You do have to bargain though- they rarely quote you the actual "real price."
I love Tapioca Express! They are my favorite tapioca shop and I do love their tiny tapioca balls. A favorite of mine is their thai iced tea with lychee jelly :)
I like silver nails because they are clean and have good prices (around $25 for a manicure last time I checked). Sure their ambiance is not as good as Lavande in Santana Row but you will not be rushed here and the staff are all experienced. They use OPI.
I came here for dinner with a girl friend and the highlight of the meal by far was the sangria (delicious!) and their green tea Tiramisu. We honestly could not tell the difference between their dishes and Mr. Chow's. They do have a lovely ambiance though and I'd gladly come here just to drink any day. Their bathrooms are also a little strange and lowly lit.
I used Orthoworks for all my orthodontic work and my experiences have all been very positive. David Shen was my orthodontist and he was always very professional and took care of all my needs. I had a very smooth and short time wearing braces and everything looks great now!
I love all three of Mandarin Gourment's restaurants. Favorites include their hot and sour soup as well as their Peking Duck. I find their Peking Duck to be just as good as those hole-in-the-wall Chinese restaurants. Their ambiance is very nice and they have friendly staff/waiters.
