Day care is one of the most important decisions we could make for our precious child - who is now 12 months old.
We have had him with Happy Family Child Care and Karen starting when he was 3 months old, 5 days a week, until now and likely for the foreseeable future.
- We love that Karen and the other providers are so caring, loving, and attentive to the children here.
- We love that Karen gives us daily updates - morning and evening, and we actively discuss our child's care in person, and over email/WeChat. The communication is great.
- We love that our child can learn Cantonese here.
- We love that Karen proactively teaches our child new skills all the time.
- We love that Karen proactively looks after our child's dietary needs and discusses them with us frequently.
- We love that the facility is upstairs (not in the garage), is clean and airy, and has lots of toys, books, etc.
- We love that the other kids at this daycare facility are also well adjusted, happy, and love playing with Jackson!
- We love that every morning, our child perks up and has a huge smile as he arrives at daycare, and receives a wonderful send-off in the evening when we take him back.
I called after 5pm, and what a professional! Shows up in 10 minutes, accessed the problem (broken spring) and replaces it within the hour, no fuss! Good thing for him, or I would not be able to get my cars out of the garage!
The soup noodles are great. I have come twice for their signature #13, the house noodle soup. The wide egg noodles taste fresh and chewy, soup is flavorful, lots of different meats to sample. And free soy milk!
The meat is deliciously excellent most importantly, but so is everything else. The dining room upstairs is roomy and airy, the salad bar has a wide variety of good stuff. All the meats taste moist, seasoned just enough, and delicious (versus other similar joints I have been to where not all the meats were so consistent). The staff was great and came by frequently. They also asked us towards the end if there was a particular meat that we wanted to have more of to make sure we got everything we wanted. Classy joint all around.
Revising my review. Almond jelly seems more consistently available, milk tea is good, and the people are nice!Milk tea flavor definitely tastes good and fresh. But the last three times I went, I asked for it… En savoir plus
The atmosphere has this old school seventies feel reminiscent of my favorite Vietnamese delicious hole in the wall restaurants in Little Saigon in Southern California growing up.
The Bun Bo Hue is delicious. Soup tastes fragrant and spicy, a good variety and generous amount of meats you would expect in this dish, noodles taste right.
The three color drink, with a mix of coconut and pandan flavors, is delicious too!
Okay good Bo 7 Mon (7 courses of beef). If I had never had it before I'd say it was very good, but the whole time, my uncle and I were observing that the 7 courses of beef at Anh Hong is just a bit more tasteful. Specifically, the meatballs here seemed to have a bit less kick and variety of flavors than what I was expecting. Given the meatball roll dishes make up course number 4 to 6, that's a pretty important component of the meal.
I did appreciate the first dish though - beef salad that reminded me a bit of beef carpaccio salad, with a zesty lemon flavor.
I hate to give this a bad review, but... I had gone to this place for lunch twice in the last few years during ski season, food was decent for the price - about $16 to $18 - and great views of the lake.
This time around went for dinner on Saturday night. This place is way not worth the $32+ for what you get, the food would be much better at comparable Vegas buffets for same price. It is not that the food was much different than what i remembered, just a lot more expensive. At $32+, one expects that most food choices would taste evenly okay, with a few gourmet tasting food choices, based on my previous buffet experiences at Bay Area and Vegas buffets. Instead, the salad is mediocre, pizza looked like an imitation of Pizza Hut, Italian station was just self serve penne with basic sauces, the Chinese station looked like a bunch of slop, and the small dessert cakes all tasted dry dry dry.
The good parts- crab legs, shrimp tasted good, the prime rib was off the hook good (one of the best I have tasted at any buffet period), the California rolls were okay and tasted freshly rolled, and the big slices of dessert cake tasted less dry and fresher. Finally, the views are still great. We were seated at the window facing the lake at sundown, it is a beautiful view from the 18th floor.
So bottom line, if you think $32+ is a good price for good views, endless delicious prime rib, crab legs, shrimp, cooked fish sushi but very uneven quality for everything else, then you will enjoy this place. In my opinion, about $23 would have been the right value for the buffet.
I have been here twice, good food both times and impeccable service. The dining room is very romantic and atmospheric, really does feel very French. The last time this weekend, had a special, pork chops with potato gratin and beans. Right portion control and great food overall!
