SocialQ Local Star

I believe in treating people how I wish to be treated and giving credit where it is due. Manners and a smile go far in customer service, so it puzzles me when people don't use them. Happy reviewing!!!

  • D'lish Phish
    Takeaways    Eatons Hill, QLD

    I have been leaving my reviews for this place on 'Eatons Hill Takeaway', then I discovered they are listed as 'D'lish Phish' as well. My bad.
    Went here recently for the good ole' chicken & chips dinner. Chicken courtesy of IGA next door. But this time I asked for my chips to be cooked a little longer to make them extra crispy. Yep not a problem they said. OMG! Crispy chips with chicken salt...Yumm!!!
    Store presentation was clean and tidy, service was again friendly. I've read the other reviews below, but on my experiences I actually really like this place.
    Still recommend!

  • Eumundi Markets
    General Retailers    Eumundi, QLD

    Nice to see some things don't change. Eumundi Markets still rock!!
    It was a blistering hot day when I visited here recently, but most of the markets are under cover or shaded by trees. Still recommend wearing a hat though.
    All the stalls were filled with quality wares, clever homemade ideas and scrumptious looking food. Everyone we encountered was friendly. The walkways and amenities were kept clean. Parking was luck of the draw. Heaps of cafe's within close walking distance if you prefer to get away from the bustle of the markets for a while.
    We even found a stall that we purchased garden ornaments from fifteen years ago! Now the gentleman's son runs the stall. How good is that!
    I doubt anyone could leave Eumundi Markets without purchasing something. Totally recommend!

  • Bunnings Carseldine Warehouse
    Hardware Stores    Carseldine, QLD

    This is a very busy Bunnings servicing a lot of suburbs. Car parking seemed chaotic so I simply parked in the outer regions of the car park and walked the short distance. Signage inside the store was great, making it easy for me to find the correct aisle. I couldn't locate the product I was after so I approached the service counter. The staff, even though they were busy, were very friendly and helpful. Turns out Bunnings didn't stock what I needed, but they gave me some advice on other solutions, which worked a treat. Presentation of store was clean, not so tidy, but hey it's a hardware store. I visited mid week and the store was pretty busy. Recommend!

  • SocialQ Local Star  reviewed Bridgestone Select
    Took our car here for brake repairs. The gentleman at reception was so lovely and helpful. He had fantastic customer service skills. But that is where the good stuff ends.
    Our brakes didn't seem to be any different after the repairs, but Bridgestone assured us this was how it was meant to be. A couple of weeks later a dreadful banging noise coming from my front right-hand wheel led us to discover that a bolt was missing!
    Upon bringing this to Bridgestone's attention, they actually admitted the staff who worked on our car had been relieved of his duties with them. But as we couldn't prove the issues were caused by the staffs work, Bridgestone were not interested. Unfortunately do not recommend )-:

      Further to my comments above. We took our car for a service recently at a different local business.
      This business is owned by a friend, so we know we can trust them. We were advised that a previous brake part had not been fitted correctly.
      Interestingly this was the same part that Bridgestone fitted and tried to tell us was fine. Do not recommend :-(


  • SocialQ Local Star  reviewed Stumer's Sewing Centre
    Stumers came highly recommended by someone who has been sewing for 40 years.
    So I went to the store with my list in hand and questions prepared. Unfortunately I have to say that I came away disappointed. Seasoned sewers probably love this place, but I really got the feeling that unless you know what you're doing/ talking about you are not welcome here.
    After wandering around for approx. ten minutes I realised I would need help. So I approached the sales assistant behind the counter and admitted that I was new to sewing and needed help purchasing some items. There was only one other customer browsing around the store at the time, so I didn't feel that I was imposing too much. But the staff seemed annoyed at my lack of knowledge.
    So my score is based on the following:-
    End result is that I managed to purchase everything I needed - 1 star.
    Highly recommended by an experienced sewer, so it must be good if you know what you're doing - 1 star.
    Store was very clean and tidy - 1 star.

      Your store is very enticing and appears to have everything a sewer would need. Thank you for viewing my comments as constructive criticism. I have always wanted to sew, so am slowly learning my way :-)


  • SocialQ Local Star  reviewed Hertz
    Arrived in Sydney late at night after a delayed & eventful flight due to bad weather. So feeling a bit jaded and tired, we made our way to Hertz. The office was full, but one of the staff acknowledged us to say they wouldn't be long. Good start in my book. A few minutes later we were served by Daniel, who was super efficient and friendly. Within ten minutes we were on our way. Returning the car a couple of days later was another smooth process. Very friendly staff. Recommend!!!
    Have marked mid-way though, because since returning have noticed substantial extra charges on our credit card that don't match our receipt. Currently awaiting a response from the customer relations team.....stay tuned. Hoping for a good outcome.
    • SocialQ Local Star 
      Yep all good with Hertz. Just me not understanding the rental car holding charge. Spoke to George on the Customer Helpline and he was very helpful. Thanks!!!
