Restaurants Chatswood, NSWLocated near the entrance of 'Hawker Lane' in the fresh food section of Westfield on the group floor, you are drawn to the smokey skewers of Lamb and Cumin being charred over a hot flame. You can see you meal being made and smell the beautiful south East Asian spices. 3 skewers for $5.50 or 5 for $8 it is hard to resist! The skewers aren't big but they are full of flavour!
Takeaways Neutral Bay, NSWBeef ribs and burgers are the way to go here. It's a fun casual dining experience with booths and an old school industrial vibe. You order at the counter and only then can you grab a seat. Your bucket provides you with a table number and cutlery and napkins. The food comes up quick and is brought to your table. The ribs were soft, deliciously BBQ grilled and I loved every mouthful.
They have high chairs for babies and the staff are friendly. We Will be back!

Cafes Neutral Bay, NSWA small hole in the wall cafe that served great coffee and simple breakfast items that are satisfying and delicious. Their banana bread is a personal favourite. It's a little loaf which they cut up, toast and butter. A soft, sweet, portion of goodness that is like a warm hug in the morning.
Hotels Sydney, NSWThe cafe in the lobby is bright and a great place to catch up with a friend or swing a business deal. There were 'suits' everywhere, pitching and pushing deals. The staff are very professional and are clearly graduates of some fancy hospitality training school. The coffee is good and the lunch consists of sandwiches, quiches and salads. Prices were not too bad at around $15 per person.
Cafes Mosman, NSWThough it is crowded, and there are not many seating areas, this is a great place to impress friends from Overseas, giving them a taste of Sydney life. Beautifully presented food, right over the pristine waters of balmoral beach. Even on a winters day it is hard not to love this place. When we came for breakfast it started raining, making half of our table unusable. Unfortunately there was nothing the staff could do so we essentially just got a little wet. Nevertheless, enjoyed relaxing here and strolling along the beach afterwards.
Restaurants Neutral Bay, NSWMy most recent visit led me to the discovery that this place is owned by the same people as kintaro. Which makes sense because I love both these places!
This place is much for casual, you sit on little box chairs and there is nothing flash, in fact it is quite a humble place. The toilets a little run down and are outside and it can be a little cold getting there in winter. The Takoyaki here is pretty good, and I admit this casual Japanese restaurant is our 'go to' for a fun casual night out. The staff are super friendly and it is very family friendly.
Restaurants Neutral Bay, NSWGreat Japanese food that satisfies. There are lots of tables and the place is a nice family friendly atmosphere that is neat and not too crowded.

Takeaways Mosman, NSWIf you are looking for authentic Italian pasta, this is one of the best.

Clothing Retailers Sydney, NSWA very busy H&M store, but they have lots of stock. I bought some great tights for baby girls, they were $9.9 each but they had a promotion where you buy two get one free. They are great quality and make a good layering piece for winter. They also recently had some sales where some items where only $5! Sometimes you wonder how they can make clothes so cheap. My husband often frequents this store too as it is right in the heart of Sydney's shopping mecca - pitt street mall.
