The main reason you would come to Asian Food Center rather than Kam Man is probably because their fruits and vegetables are fresher than Kam Man's. I think AFC is also slightly bigger. They have a bakery, seafood section, and a section that sells kitchenware. They have a good selection of Asian foods and sometimes they have steaming-hot and fresh "zhong zi" which is sticky rice wrapped in bamboo leaves. Highly recommended, check it out.
Although this theater is in a pretty convenient location, it's quite lacking in many aspects. The screens are small, the seats are old, small and not very comfortable and the floors are non-carpeted and sticky. This is a pretty old theater and before all my peers could drive, this was all I knew. Now I could never return to this theater. For an adult I believe it's around $9 for a ticket.
I quite like this bubble tea shop because not only is their bubble tea pretty good, their shop is decorated in a way that gives you a full visual experience. It's predominantly pink in there, which is a color I love, and the employees there, which were all female when I went, are stylishly dressed and wearing matching shirts that represent the shop. They also have a cute stamping card where if you buy 5 cups, you get a free cup and 20% off VIP membership. The card also doubles as a menu, which I find so efficient and I love the quality of the card itself. They even have a "Top 10 sale products" which I think is AWESOME for those who can't decide or want to try something new. They have milk tea, slushes, flavored tea drinks, pudding, yogurt, lemon jelly, snacks and special teas. Their prices are consistent with small sizes being $2.75 and large being $3.75. You can easily spot this shop because they have a giant Homer Simpson figurine outside of their door.
This is a hair salon that I went to in preparation for prom. I had my hair styled and my makeup applied here. The staff is quite nice and polite. I was given a book of hairstyles to look at and they did my makeup according to the color of my dress. My complaints:
The makeup looked distinctly Chinese and heavier than I would have liked.
They gave me big curls and hair-sprayed it stiff. I understand that they were helping me maintain the style throughout the night, but it just became unnatural.
I don't know about the haircuts here, so don't base it on my review. I can only speak of their other services.
It's difficult to find a good hair salon for Asian hair around Edison, but luckily this place exists. This hair salon is run under Taiwanese management, I believe. The owner's name is Sam and I always get my hair cut by him. I've never had a bad experience here and one time, I even brought in a picture of a hairstyle I wanted and he was able to cut it perfectly. The salon itself is medium-sized, clean, modernly simple and pleasant. The prices are pretty average--what you would expect out of a hair salon, except you'll probably be more satisfied getting your hair cut here if you have Asian hair than you would be if you got your hair cut by a non-Asian stylist who does not understand Asian hair.
This restaurant is NOT a fast food Chinese place, just so you know. They don't offer your typical 'beef and broccoli' dishes, which I personally think is disgusting. They've got an authentic Chinese menu and selection. I recommend getting General Tso's chicken. My family frequently orders it for pick up and we just pair it with our dinner back home. It's that good! They also have good spicy dumplings. Prices are decent and I would definitely recommend it.
This place rocks. It's pretty much the main place where people shop for Asian/Chinese groceries around here. They've got a bakery, a fresh seafood section, Taiwanese eats, Asian household items, video/dvd rental, a Verizon service store, jewelry shop and Asian medicine/pharmacy-esque store. You can pretty much find anything you need around here.
Banzai is the lesser version of Makkolis. Strangely enough, they've got a huge amount of space and huge staff who seem to lack duties. Their selection of sushi and sashimi is severely lacking and there is nothing innovative. They high dinner cost comes from the crab legs they serve, which I think is not worth it at all. Their hot food is nothing special--the buffet line is pretty much what you'd get at Grand Buffet or something. Where's all the seafood? They've got a station in the back where to cook food for you. They also have a person manning the ice cream station to scoop ice cream for you...which is kind of awkward. I think this place will topple soon if they don't make adjustments. There doesn't appear to be much business and the food is overpriced.
I hear this place was opened by a rich Chinese family. They have the expected variety of fruity bubble teas and smoothies. They also have a selection of teas, shaved ices, ice cream and they even have...toast? I like the yogurt bubble tea and original. I hear their red bean ice cream is pretty good. Also, they've got a section of the store where they sell Asian valuables like figurines, cute cellphone pouches, jewelry, and etc. Sometimes they've got a large dog in there, so if you're afraid of dogs or allergic, be wary.
This is the place to go for Dim Sum. This place is pretty big, and they've got a basement where you can hold parties or meal events. The staff carts around the food, you point and order. They also have a menu of entrees that you can order from separate from the dim sum. We always get the shrimp dumplings and shrimp "chang fen." Turnip cakes are always good, and they have stuff like cow stomach. They also have egg custard tarts, almond tofu and such for dessert. A bit on the expensive side, however, but it's nice that you can get food so briskly.
