Shopping Centres Leura, NSWI'm so happy with my candles that I purchased from here. We visited the Blue Mountains one weekend and stumbled across this candle shop. Not only are they a lot cheaper that your commercial candles, they smell so beautiful and last long. The staff were very friendly and wrapped the candles in nice gift wrap paper. I hope to buy some more from their online store but would definitely visit here again if I ever return to the Blue Mountains.
Chocolatiers Leura, NSWBest pie I've ever eaten. I'm from out of town and I would most definitely drive all the way to the Blue Mountains just to have a nice hot pie from here. Loved every bit of it and the people that work there are very friendly. I also had a piece of this indulgent almond meal chocolate cake which was to die for!
Cafes Blackheath, NSWReally great pies and sausage rolls from this darling little patisserie we stumbled across while we were visiting the Blue Mountains one weekend. Lovely staff and the all of the other pastries looked unbelievably delicious! Swing by for a coffee and sit outside while you watch the world go by.
Takeaways Leura, NSWI really enjoyed this little cafe! The cafe was really busy but we were able to get a table straight away. The waiters looked flustered as they told us they were under staffed that day. We had to wait a little while for our food but didn't mind too much. The coffee was really tasty and our breakfasts were pretty good too. Although my scrambled eggs were a little bit too oily and buttery. Lovely place and would come back to this cafe again.
Restaurants Katoomba, NSWWe visited the Blue Mountains one long weekend and was looking for something quick and tasty to eat for dinner. Chinese food you can never go wrong. We happened to stumble across this place late one night and decided to walk in. At first the waiters said they could not seat us because they were fully booked but the restaurant was half empty. We still aren't sure why they said that. Another waiter said that it was fine to accommodate us, so the 6 of us sat down and ate a delicious meal. The food was good quality and the service here is very quick. We were very satisfied with the overall experience and would probably visit this restaurant again if we ever come back to the Blue Mountains.
Takeaways Surry Hills, NSWAwesome restaurant upstairs! Cuban style I think it was. We ordered the fried chicken burger which was so delicious I could have eaten two! It was too packed because we came at lunch time but I assume it would get very busy after work. Highly recommend this place if you're after a nice big burger that comes with sweet potato fries!
Plumbing Concord West, NSWFantastic plumbing service. My shower head kept leaking and was quite loose. It would never stay upwards while you had the water on and forced you to hold it in your hands while having a shower. I called Chiswick Plumbing to come and replace it. They came out within the next business day as I was not available that day. The guy that came out was very friendly and was very clean while coming through my house. He even took his shoes off to go upstairs because my house is carpeted. They fixed and replaced it on the spot. I'm very happy with the service and was reasonably happy with the fee they charged me. Overall my experience with them was pleasant and would recommend them to my family and friends.#reviewtowin
Restaurants Summer Hill, NSWI ate dinner here last week and was really impressed. The waitstaff are so welcoming and friendly. My mum and I ordered 1 entree and a main each. The food is very fresh and the waitstaff also keep topping up your glass with water and offer you free prawn chips to munch on before your food arrives. This place is right around the corner from my home so I will definitely be coming back here again.
Takeaways Pyrmont, NSWDin Tai Fung have the best dumplings ever! I come here all the time. I usually order the braised beef with spinach soup and the pork dumplings. The dumplings melt in your mouth. They are over priced but worth every penny.
Restaurants Manly, NSWawesome place! Right across from the beach. I was here last week and had some lunch, My colleagues and I ordered the 52 piece sashimi set. it came out on a wooden boat which was pretty cool! The fish was very fresh and delicious! I don't often visit Manly but if I do again, I would definitely come back here again for the food and the good vibe.
Hairdressers Concord, NSWSo impressed with my first visit to this salon! I made an appointment online for last Saturday. As soon as I arrived I was greeted by a lovely girl who new who I was as soon as I walked in! She took me to my seat and offered me a drink. An apprentice gave me a welcome head massage which was really nice. The senior hair stylist was so lovely and recommended which colour I should go. Once my colour was in and then ready to be taken out, the apprentice took me to the basin to wash out the colour followed by a relaxing head massage. I was really impressed! My hair was cut then roughly blowdryed and then she added some curls. I'm so happy with the way my hair came out, it looks great. I was also given a couple of vouchers that I can use for my next visits. I will definitely be coming back here again.
Restaurants Summer Hill, NSWMy friends and I came here on Saturday night for some nibbles and drinks. Its such a cool little pocket bar and right in the heart of Summer Hill. As I recently moved to Summer Hill this place is a great find because I know it's just around the corner from my home. We weren't overloaded with food which was good, it was just the right amount and the food was quality! The bar is upstairs so we decided to go up there after we devoured in our meals. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who does not feel like trekking into the city on a Saturday night.
Florists Revesby, NSWLast Friday I contacted this florist to arrange a bouquet of flowers to be delivered on the same day in order to give my condolences to a family. The lady that I spoke to on the phone immediately helped me. She spoke very calmly and was very nice. I wasn't too sure as to what type of arrangement I wanted so she happily recommended a nice all white bouquet of different flowers. The lady on the phone also helped me on what to write inside the card which was lovely. She took all my details down and the flowers that I'd ordered were delivered to the house only a couple of hours later which I was very happy with. There prices are very reasonable and would highly recommend this florist to anyone. Thank you!
Cafes Ashfield, NSWSuch a nice little cafe in a suburban area. I recently moved to this area not long ago and have been struggling to find a nice cafe to go to. After finding this place I was very impressed and cannot wait to go back again. I came here on Saturday afternoon looking for some lunch. My friends and I were seated straight away and was attended to shortly after by a friendly waitress. She mentioned to us that the kitchen was about to close but was still able to order food. We ordered our meals and coffee, the coffee was served very quickly and tasted delicious! It so hard to find good Baristas these days but this cafe seems to have it down pat. Our meals came along not long after; I ordered the mushrooms on toast with a side of fetta plus soy linseed bread and after my first bite I'd gone to heaven! The mushrooms were were cooked to perfection in this creamy sauce, tasted a bit like a stroganoff dish. I was very impressed with my meal. Highly recommended if you are in the Ashfield area and feel like something else other than dumplings which is your usual meal you'll find in Ashfield.
Restaurants Balmain, NSWI visited this restaurant on Saturday night after hearing many good reviews about it. I booked our reservation online at Dimmi.com.au and was able to get a table for 6 people at 8.30pm for that same night. My friends are I were greeted friendly and were escorted to our table within 5 minutes. We quickly ordered our drinks - spritzers as an true Italian! Then we all ordered our entrees, then we ordered our mains not long after. The food all came out very quickly and was very delicious! Although the servings were quite small, some of us were still hungry after dinner. It is a little expensive but the quality and freshness of the food is 100%. Highly recommended place!
Sports Clubs Bondi Beach, NSWWe decided to come here to Icebergs in Bondi Beach today for lunch. We tried calling before to reserve a spot but they were already booked. Once we got there we only waited about 15 mins for a table which was great because we got a spot on the balcony! The view is amazing and so refreshing. You can see the whole of Bondi Beach. We ordered the seafood platter for two which was $70 and all worth it! They are really big portions and are generous with the amount of seafood. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone who visits Bondi. It's such a nice club whilst getting the whole 'Bondi' experience! Great place to come on a hot summers day but make sure to get there nice and early!
Pubs & Bars Drummoyne, NSWYum! This place has fantastic pub food! Great place to come here for a nice long beer in the summer time. Its recently been renovated and is much more appealing. The bar tenders here are pretty friendly and are always up for a chat. I was here 2 weeks ago for a friends birthday and ordered the steak with chips - couldn't have asked for anything more! The steak was cooked to perfection, all at a reasonable price! Definitely coming back here again.
Restaurants Sydney, NSWCame here yesterday for Christmas lunch and was really impressed! We ordered the churassco BBQ ($30 per head) and was very delicious but not very much of a variety! I would have like to have seen a little bit of seafood on the menu but still very happy with what we got. The service was a little bit slow to start but the waiters were very friendly and tentative.
Pubs & Bars Bondi Beach, NSWLove this place! Its a great place to go to in the summer time! We came here one Sunday afternoon after a swim at Bondi Beach and was the best thing. We ordered our drinks from this friendly beach waiter and got our cocktails pretty quickly. The cocktails are so tasty but a little expensive! After that we ordered some quick bites, the food here is so fresh and simple here its just what you need after a big swim.
Restaurants Sydney, NSWGreat joint! Hidden too! You wouldn't have known something like this existed in the heart of the city. I came here with 7 other people for our Christmas lunch, I felt like I was in New York City. The food was average. I ordered the seafood platter and wasn't too impressed. The seafood didn't taste fresh at all and tasted like it was just heated up. Maybe I should have ordered the burger as this seemed to be the most favorable on the menu. The entrees was tasty, the sweet potato chips were my favourite. I like the layout, the atmostphere is great and the waiters are super friendly. Cocktails are amazing!! I'll definitely come back here for the cocktails.
