Parge Local Star

I stand by my comments and reviews. If I have said anything bad on there is a good chance I have said it to the business directly face to face or by signed letter.

I hope all businesses read my reviews, and are worried about their online presessence and reply, again I standby every word.

I hope my posts are of use to locals and travellers. And not suprisingly I have been both :))

  • L.I.K.E STYLE Hairdressing
    Hairdressers    St Leonards, NSW

    First of all the pic on this review is over 4 years old and I question whether it was ever accurate. The cars are rather rundown and look like a toddler has been trying to eat the car seats. TV and videos are up to date with Peppa Pig.

    I felt it was expensive compared to places we have now found for toddlers. Previous haircut was fine, though nothing special. Let's say my toddler looked cuter after haircuts elsewhere.

    Our biggest beef with this place, is that we have made two bookings and both were not honoured and double booked. The only hairdresser, no plural "staff" as suggested in the write up above. Confirmed the booking as heard by both my partner and I, but when we turned up with a toddler not easy to do, as no easy parking nearby. We were told it was for two days later and no apology. Then a week later, when we booked it again, we had the same issue.

    Again after showing up with our toddler and organising work around getting there. The booking was somehow moved to two days later. I felt the rudeness of the only staff member, suggested that the second instance was almost deliberate! As if I had stuffed up a customer once, I would make sure to do everything to keep their business if they gave me a second chance which we did.

    Expensive haircuts, average in nature. They know how to take the reservation, they just don't know how to hold the reservation.

  • Lane Cove Auto Care
    Mechanic    Lane Cove, NSW

    So I have switched to Felix and his team here in Lane Cove and found his service ultra competitive in terms of price. Everything was upfront and got a call as soon as there was going to be any additional costs.

    Auto Care Lane Cove also gave me a few options in terms of how I wanted my car fixed. So I could use a time frame that suits me and possibly lower the costs. Car was serviced same day. Will be saying with Lane Cove Auto Care for all my car service needs.

  • The Rice Den
    Takeaways    Chatswood, NSW

    Food is rather exceptional here. Starting with the duck wonton soup.

    Then you can go any of the fried rice varieties from a great main meal. Or try the soft shell crab main. Everything else I have had from here has always been exceptional in terms of taste and decent sized mains.

    For Chatswood, it could be considered a little expensive, but worth the extra few bucks. It's also a little small, but that just means you get some personal service and more attention to detail. Wooden seats can get a little uncomfortable.

    Well worth the visit.

    I have to commend this particular branch of Commonwealth for their dedication to their customers and professionalism.

    Every time I enter the branch there's also someone there to ensure I'm well looked after. This is the reason I chose Commonwealth to apply for my Home Loan. The whole process was executed very quickly and smoothly and I was more than satisfied. I'd recommend this to anyone!

      Rather than have someone great us, how about having someone that actually serves people! Actual working tellers.

  • samantha_s Local Star  reviewed Salsa's Fresh Mex Grill
    For takeaway mexican it hits the spot. However, if I more highly rate other mexican grill as the Salsa's servings are smaller, not as tasty and the wrap itself isn't as good.

      Comments seems fair. Just after reading it I think the 2.5 stars seems rather generous!

  • Parge Local Star  reviewed Gloria Jeans Coffee
    What is already under new management after being open for what seems like less than a year, it still goes "alright." It's really a case of what type of coffee you like. If you what a creamy caramel style light coffee, Gloria Jeans is for you.

    If you want a heavier stronger and richer coffee there is plenty of cafe's metres away which offer much cheaper and a more genuine coffee. Gloria Jeans is really starting to price itself out of the Australian market and when you consider how much variety and choice is nearby, there is a reason when nearby cafes have queues waiting for their coffee's whilst this Gloria Jeans has a few scattered customers.

    Service is fine on the few times I have been here with my family everything seems fine and it was mainly on the fact we could find a table rather than anything else. Still can't believe the prices in such a competitive location.

    Not the best coffee for the true locals.

      Since TrueLocal do not publish my "true" negative reviews.
      I had to be generous and give this place 1.5 stars, the fact it has now closed down, illustrates that my initial assessment and review was correct.
