I love their Crawfish Etoufee and I order the same thing everytime I go there. There's a bar at the entrance and a small live band playing in the front. It's definitely nicer and larger than it looks from the outside and has valet parking. I love going there, but because my boyfriend's a conservative Asian guy and the dining crowd is almost 100% African American (I have nothing against them, please don't get me wrong), he's always reluctant to go with me, although he does admit the food is good. It's not that he's racist or anything of that sort, it's just that he feels like an oddball in the restaurant since we're usually the only Asian people in there and he feels he doesn't belong. But if it were just me, I'd care less because the food is totally irresistible and the waitresses are very nice. The customers seem to be a wealthy crowd (sometimes famous) and the setting is classy.
I'd say their prices are in the mid to high range, but you get A LOT of food in your plate. So proportionately, it's not that expensive at all. I do wish that they offer smaller portions for less so that I can try a variety of things w/o spending a fortune. For those w/o a monstrous appetite, I'd recommend sharing an entree w/someone else.
PROS: Incredibly delicious Cajun-style entrees
CONS: Lack of diversity in the restaurant, high price for huge dishes
Not only do you get quite a bit of food, it's not bad at all and you can't find this kind of price anywhere else. They sometimes also give you complimentary soups & desserts. The only downside is that their stuff is sometimes a hit or miss. Most of the items I've tried are pretty good, but some items are pretty bland in flavor. Their food is not the MSG-laden strongly flavored kind, so I'd highly recommend this place for those who've never tried authentic Taiwanese/Chinese food (not the Panda Express fake Chinese kind) and want a good place to start, Chinese people who don't have the time to make dinner, and high school students looking for a quick but filling lunch. QQ is the place to go to for fast and inexpensive food that won't torture your tastebuds.
PROS: Cheap, lots of food for the price, free desserts
CONS: Some items are bland, wouldn't recommend as a dine-in as it's really small
There were quite a few people in the waiting area and a fairly long wait before I was seen by the doctor, but I liked that fact I was able to schedule an appointment only one day in advance. The doctor I saw was friendly and not condescending. She also didn't rush me like many doctors would in busy clinics.
I was looking for Yasmin (recommended to me by a friend) but they didn't carry it (probably because it's one of the most expensive pills out there) and wouldn't write a prescription for it. I've tried many of the most popular brands (all of which they carry) and didn't like any of them. So I ultimately had to make an appointment w/an outside gynecologist for a prescription for Yasmin. But if you need birth control and can't afford it, you really can't beat Planned Parenthood because everything is free for low-income patients. They'll give you a whole year's supply of birth contorl pills (worth hundreds of dollars), tons of condoms, and a backup emergency contraceptive packet (the kind used within 48 hrs of unprotected sex), which might come in very handy one day.
I'm not advocating teenage sex, but if you are sexually active and too young to get birth control elsewhere without your parents knowing, Planned Parenthood is the best place to go to. I wish I would've known to come here when I was in high school.
PROS: Busy clinic, fairly long wait
CONS: Nice doctor, free services & many birth control methods available
The office was pretty busy and almost filled with people. Even though I had an appointment with Dr. Wong initially, I was asked if I wanted to see Dr. Kwong instead (probably because of the long wait). He was very nice and helpful with the problems I had, and gave me lots of samples (including a $180 inhaler). I'd give 5 stars to Dr. Kwong if it wasn't for the busy office & one of the receptionist ladies (they were all young & there were at least 4-5 of them) who I thought was a bit condescending when she was speaking to me about my insurance. At any rate, I'd still recommend this place because it's the doctor that matters the most. He also seemed very sympathetic to my problems because he has allergies too!
PROS: Upbeat, friendly & helpful doctor
CONS: Busy office
