Head to the beer garden for a little festive oasis in at the back of the slip inn. The famous el loco serves food here including hot dogs, tacos and mains of crackling pork and chicken. Had a great lunch sipping on beer and eating good Mexican inspired food. Lots mod large benches for groups and there's seating inside and out. You can book in advance too. Great vibe, great food. Expect to pay about $35 per person including drinks.
Yesterday myself and a posse of work mates dined at "El Loco" to celebrate two of our beloved co-workers birthdays. We were looking for a place where we could kick back in a casual environment, enjoy a meal and drink in the sun and not pay an arm and a leg. As you walk in to the newly renovated Slip Inn the Mexican atmosphere is evident everywhere - from the colourful walls and table settings to the menu. The prices are pretty reasonable for a quick lunch hour meal and include a range of tacos in a number of exotic flavours (they are quite small so if you arrive with a rumbling tummy take the advice of attendant and order 2-3 tacos. "The Cuban sandwich" which although very tasty filled with spit roast pork, resembled more of a hamburger than a sandwich. There are french fries and a couple of main meals including lamb, chicken and fish. Portions aside the food was all very fresh and their were no complaints from our group. The service is very friendly and completely accommodating for a large or small group, the atmosphere is very bar-cas and overall it is still a really nice venue to pop in for a laidback meal with friends.
Came here all the way from Tempe, and I think it was worth it. I'm not a food critic, and maybe its not the BEST pizza ever, but it sure was tasty and there was obvious quality in the ingredients and cooking. Staff can be a little bold, I think most of them are European.
AMAZING FOOD guys, the pork belly here is to die for and so is the chicken salad and the scallops with their amazing garnishings that make the dish simply superb! The san choy bau is so unique and delicious that it leaves me wanting more! The dishes are plated and served in such a high class manner which makes other restaurants appear quite inferior. As a person who frequents restaurants and is Chinese (eats a lot of chinese food), this restaurant brings out the jaw dropping supremacy of amazing foods!
For a thorough remedial massage and for a reasonable price, I can definitely recommend the team here. Friendly staff, clean studio, and great service - my only criticism is the toilets being located deep into the gym (the massage business is located in the front of the gym's building) and having to bypass all the fitness pros getting their muscles on!
I love Ripples! I've had them out to my home for a joint massage session and loved it! Very professional and lovely people to deal with. They also have a fantastic range to choose from at reasonable prices. What more do you need?....Except more time to get massaged!! :P
Chez Dre has a full range of Viennoserie for breakfast which is quite tantalising and gives it that French Patisserie feel. The breakfast menu has things on it you definitely won't see elsewhere. The wait wasn't as bad as I expected and we were seated fairly promptly and service was excellent. I enjoyed all my food although it wasn't cheap. It was extremely noisy and we found it hard to carry on a conversation. Had it not been so noisy we would have stayed and consumed more!
Like most popular brunch places, waiting comes as no surprise here. I came here on a Sunday morning, just before noon and was told the wait for a table of 2 would be about 30 minutes. I ended up waiting just over 45 minutes, but this is something that is expected. The long wait however was immediately followed by fantastic customer service who attended us almost immediately as we were seated. We started off we coffees which were amazing. After we ordered our lunch, the food didn't take too long either. The serving size was very reasonable, however, I felt the pricing was a bit much for lunch. I guess the location and hype of this popular lunch place comes with that price. This is the second time I've been here and I would come back, but probably not for a while. If you're not from the area, it's still worth the visit and worth the wait. You have the option of putting your name down and coming back later as there is plenty to do around here.
By far the worst 40 dollars that i ahve spent!!! The hair wash was exteremely poor and blow drying was even worse. My hair was left tangled in the hair brushes that they left for better curles..But it was very painful to get the hair strands out of the brushes and they were totally tangled. I usually get much better results at home and they did not even apply any serum or spray post the blow dry. The curls were non existant and by the time I reached home I had frizzy and bad hair. The next day my collegues asked if i have used some bad products on my hair as it lokos dry ,frizzy and very damaged!! Its the worst salon in sydney ever !!!!
Myself and my friend had booked in a week ago for a blow dry. All I can say is, it is by far, the worst salon experience I and my friend have ever had. Both of our stylist talked to each other (not to us) and actually talked about other co-workers. We weren't happy with the final product, my hair was still damp and had both had to re-do it at home. We did not have time to complain/ask for a re-do there has we had other commitments to attend. I do not recommend this salon.
I really rated the service of this casual but fun pizza bar, and the pizzas were good. The place was heaving quite early, but tables turn quickly - recommend grabbing a drink from the bar and pull up a pew in the front, overlooking Hastings Street.
Key takeaway was that they are 'gluten-free' friendly, no hassles there-just an extra $2.00 for the change. A wide selection of pizzas, split into categories: classics, gourmet, seafood. Starters are the usual, including wedges, garlic bread and nachos. Really wanted to try the nachos but weren't that hungry. Keen to know how they go?
$16 cocktails, reasonably priced. The bar's decor is a bit corny, but look pass the fluoro lights and you'll be in for a treat.
They do takeaway too, so either drop in, make an order and have a beer while you wait or call ahead if you want to avoid the crowds.
Bit of a moot point talking about this place because I don't see it lasting with the current management......certainly in terms of delivering on promises made to those hiring the venue and wanting to make a very important night special for their friend...they failed...big time...all the staff are doing the best they can to deal with what is obviously a mismanaged,highly disorganized venue with bad,uncaring management,we had the misfortune to meet them and it all became clear...goodbye The Village..
