I go to New Brunswick Loews for the majority of movies that I watch although there are theatres way closer to my house. The theatre is huge and impressive looking. I love the old movie posters they have hanging up and the appearance and decor can only be described as 'loud'. They have a good snack bar although it can be expensive, like all theatres. If you have time to kill, they also have an arcade section. The seats in the theatres lean back so they're good to watch lengthy movies in.
Really nice, huge theatres. The seats are comfortable and the floors are usually cleaned before you sit down. They tend to ID younger looking customers to get into some of the R rated movies but the staff is nice otherwise. Also, the crowds that watch the movies are sometimes loud, especially during comedies and horror films. It's conveniently connected to the enormous Jersey Gardens outlet mall so you can catch an early movie and still get all your shopping done without driving.
My favorite bakery in Chinatown. I only ever get the chance to go on the weekend so it has been crowded every time I've gone. The shop is small and crammed with customers and the staff is a little frazzled by it but they're nice nonetheless. There is some seating up a small flight of stairs but it's in need of some renovation to accomodate all the customers. They have a huge menu that includes bubble teas, smoothies, chinese pastries and cookies, american cookies and hot drinks. You can make a meal out of a few dollars with their meat and vegetable stuffed pastries. Their egg custards are amazing.
They price by the number of people on the table. There are a lot of pool tables so in my experience, I've never had to wait for people to leave or for one to open up. There are TVs and music, as well as tons of people playing pool. Some of the people that work there breakdance sometimes so it's fun to watch. The atmosphere is really chill and not bland at all. They also have a few arcade games and a ping pong table or two.
Frank's has a wide variety of pizzas and combinations. My absolute favorite kind is their chicken marsala pizza. I also recommend their pasta with vodka sauce pizza and their plain as well. The pizza can be a little greasy but it's most definitely worth it. The establishment is small but the staff is nice and friendly. Worth the twenty minute drive from my house.
Definitely my favorite slice of plain pizza in town. The prices are reasonable and worth it for what you get. Located right on Roosevelt Ave in West Carteret, it's a great place to go if you're in a rush and in the mood for pizza.
Penang is one of my favorite restaurants. They have an extensive menu that incorporates all tastes to satisfy all palates; sweet, salty, savory, spicy. The food is prepared Malaysian style and it's not very long after you order that you receive it. The portions are pretty large for one person, so to ensure you get to taste a variety of dishes, I recommend splitting with friends. The staff here is very friendly. I go in probably once or twice a month but the waiters are friendly and always recognize me. The pricing is awesome for what it's worth. This location has a very small parking lot so some of the patrons end up parking in the Kam Man parking lot next door.
I've been here tons of times and I can't say I've ever had a bad experience. The staff is friendly and the waiters and busboys are attentive to your needs. They also create a friendly atmosphere and engage the customers in conversation. The food is always cooked wonderfully, I can't say I've had a better lobster anywhere! The prices aren't overexaggerated. It's located on the Perth Amboy waterfront, so it's convenient if you want to go take a stroll after dinner. They also have a bar and upstairs portion of the restaurant if you want to hold a party (they offer buffet style for occasions). In the summer, they also offer outside seating. My only complaint is that the bathrooms are miniscule.
Small place and a little grungy on the inside but they have a large selection of candy and other junk food snacks. In individual pieces, they sell airheads, bazooka bubble gum, warheads, etc. for a few cents a piece which is good, especially if you're a child with a lot of change. They also have a decent selection of soft drinks as well. Of course, they also sell cigarettes and lottery tickets too.
Located on the bottom floor of Woodbridge Center, directly across from the kid's play area. The staff here is entertaining and good with kids. The inside of the store is set up colorfully and they're really good at taking pictures for gifts and memoirs. My baby cousin had been sulking when I bought her in but they got her to laugh and smile for pictures.
