Not all the doctors here are great. One in particular was not very open to my getting a second opinion on my child's recurring ear infections. The delay in getting a second opinion definitely contributed to the speech impediment my child developed from not being able to hear correctly during all those infections. We still use this group and have a different doctor within the practice but I advise other parents to always seek a second opinion on something as crucial as their child's health.
Only one screen but a nice one with good sound. Has a home-towny feel to it. My family likes the vintage look and feel and the triumph of avoiding a huge chain like the awful Regal Hacienda theaters with their filthy bathrooms and long lines. The bathrooms are vintage too and not wheel-chair or elderly friendly but they have benches you can change babies on. Perfect place for a kid's movie matinee. We adore the balcony seating and that the same guy always sells us our tickets. Hope it never closes.
A very nice little Italian in The Hub with a good menu and what started out as good service. A large party came in and the staff almost totally ignored us after that point. Nice, fresh ingredients, nice sauces. Many vegetarian options and more importantly, a willingness on the part of the kitchen to prepare dishes without meat upon request. Prices are within reason but the lighting is very poor, making it hard to see what you are eating. Would happily dine there again.
Very heavily spiced and extremely sweet sauces. Good quality fresh veggies are a plus but the sauces kind of put the damper on them. Also rather pricey for what you get. There are better Thai places. Try Lime Leaf in the Castro Village or Thai Garden over on Mission (Hayward-San Lorenzo border).
Very sweet, very bland and the sauces were quite viscous with corn starch. We were most unimpressed. Not a great selection for vegetarians. Try Lime Leaf Thai in the Castro Village or go to Thai Garden down the road in Hayward for better Thai.
Excellent flavours, prices and atmosphere. Very impressive selection of vegetarian options. We enjoyed the fried banana appetizer, the spring rolls and the red and yellow curries. Nice, fresh ingredients. Great service. Dinner for three came in under 48 dollars with several rounds of drinks. Definitely not in the prettiest neighbourhood but not unsafe. Just ugly and out of the way. Worth the trip for the food and service. The opening hours are not always as posted in the signs out front or on their answering machine and they are closed on Sundays which takes them down a star for me.
This is a nice market with great produce and a nice selection of things like fresh, artisan breads, cheeses, ethnic foods and health foods. Lovely staff too. It is very old-fashioned and in dire need of an update to the facility itself. The place suffers badly from terrible odors that hit you when you come into the store. Smells like old, rotting drains and the terrible stench of the chicken rotisserie and sushi bar. If they cleaned and updated the interior this place could give Safeway and Trader Joe's a serious run for their money. It is the closest market to where I live but I tend to drive down the road to TJ's because the prices are so much better there and it does not smell as bad.
There is nothing here you can't get elsewhere cheaper. If you live on ready-meals and junk-food then consider the convenience food over at Trader Joe's just up the road. Any thing at TJ's will have fewer preservatives and cost half the price of stuff offered at Safeway. Safeway lost my business 2 years ago when I realised it costs twice to three times as much to get a week's worth of groceries. PW Market also has a very nice selection and even the prices there are better than Safeway.
