  • Aldi
    Supermarket & Grocery Stores    North Ryde, NSW

    A new Aldi in the newly renovated Macquarie centre. A larger Aldi with lots of stock and a great fresh food section. I find the meat very reasonably priced and a good selection of seasonal fruits and veges.
    There are about 3 registers open on weekends so it can get a little busy. Don't forget to bring our own bags!

  • David Jones
    Department Stores    Melbourne, VIC

    A very large department store right in the heart of Melbourne and next to rival store- Myer.
    Lots of great clothes and there are staff who are ready to assist. Level 1 has a gorgeous selection of Australian and international designer labels.
    The store has a beautiful ambience and you can spend hours here in fashion heaven!

  • Sensory Lab
    Cafes    Melbourne, VIC

    Coffee is a little overpriced but the staff are nice and the set up is pretty impressive. They offer brewed and filtered coffee which start from $4 and go upwards to $6.
    As the man next to me said "this is the most expensive coffee I have ever had!"

  • Izakaya Den
    Restaurants    Melbourne, VIC

    I am almost certain that this is the best Japanese restaurant I have ever experienced in Australia.
    Hidden in the basement area of a city building, this dimly lit Japanese bar has about 50 seats. It opens at 5:30 and you can sit at the bar and watch the highly skilled chefs prepare your food with such care and precision.
    Every dish was amazing but my favourite was the kingfish, the fried chicken and the seafood clam chowder which was a sweet broth of subtle and well balanced flavours.
    It is a little pricey but the quality of the food is exceptional. It cost is about $140 for two of us.

  • Brother Baba Budan
    Restaurants    Melbourne, VIC

    Another trip to Melbourne so another visit to BBB! Coffee was great as usual although a little pricey. $5 for a filter brew.

  • Healesville Sanctuary
    Zoos    Healesville, VIC

    A beautiful and well maintained zoo that seamlessly integrates the enclosures with the natural surroundings of the bush and rivers.
    There are all your favourite Australian animals including koalas, platypus, Tasmanian devil, wombats and more.
    The bird show was spectacular and is well worth the wait for the 2:30pm show.
    The volunteers are so friendly and knowledgable. A must for tourists!

  • Racv Healesville Country Club
    Holiday Resorts    Healesville, VIC

    Came here for a work conference but now I want to return for a holiday! One of the nicest hotels, with massive rooms, stunning bathrooms, amazing service and friendly staff.
    The food was brilliant, I don't think I have ever experienced such delicious conference food. No boring sandwiches here- lightly steamed scallop filled dumplings, tender roast beef salad, warm poached chicken salads...
    The breakfast is delicious too with such an impressive spread, they even have honey fresh from the comb...
    Will definitely return!

  • Chin Chin
    Restaurants    Melbourne, VIC

    Today I decided to take the plunge and say "feed me", which unlocks a treasure trove of delectable delights, a journey of the senses... A banquet Chin Chin style.
    For $66 per person you get around 7 dishes plus dessert, sampling the best and most popular dishes at this thai inspired restaurant.
    The lines are still long, the queue to put your name down starts at 5pm and you may only get a seat for 6pm... This is truly a favourite restaurant of local melbournians.

    The BBQ salmon is always a favourite of mine but this time I tried dishes I previously hadn't had the pleasure of trying... Kingfish, the BBQ short ribs... The best butter chicken I have ever tasted...

    It was a great experience and chin chin still remains as one of my favourite places to eat when in Melbourne!

  • ibis Melbourne
    Hotels    Melbourne, VIC

    Nice and comfortable with clean rooms, a good bed and the basics.
    Location is excellent and the staff are accommodating.
    Wifi is $25 a day, but it is a little slow and you need to pay an extra $5 for faster internet capped at 3,000MB.

  • Nespresso Boutique
    Coffee & Tea Suppliers    Melbourne, VIC

    Nice sales assistants and a good place to try a nespresso coffee. Nespresso always release new varieties of pod and the stores are a great place to try them before you buy a sleeve.

  • Queen Victoria Market
    Farmers Market    Melbourne, VIC

    Love these markets! Full of fresh produce and happy sales assistants. Love wandering. Through the aisles and seeing the fish and meats on offer. The prices are super competitive so you can be sure the produce is fresh and affordable!

  • Priceline
    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers    Melbourne, VIC

    A large priceline store with a huge range of beauty and healthcare products. The staff are friendly and the prices are good. Saw a few products that were cheaper than Woolies and Coles.
    They stock beauty brands such as Ponds, loreal, revlon and dr lewinns.

  • Little Coconut House
    Takeaways    Melbourne, VIC

    Great authentic Malaysian flavours, so popular they have 2 stores almost adjacent to each other. Their laksa is deliciously hearty and aromatic flavours fill the restaurant. The ambience is pretty casual with some seating outside.
    The place is busy at lunch so come early or be prepared to wait.

  • Gong Cha
    Coffee & Tea Suppliers    Melbourne, VIC

    One if the better franchises of the tea craze. He tea has a stronger and fuller flavour and the toppings taste fresher. The service is quick but they have a few communication issues.

  • Nando's
    Takeaways    Melbourne, VIC

    Great service and there are lots of places to sit. The chicken is delicious and filling, a little dearer than other 'fast food' but they also have better quality produce.

  • Emporium Melbourne
    Shopping Centres    Melbourne, VIC

    Beautiful new mall in the heart of Melbourne. Home of uniqlo, topshop, and more!
    Really great layout and nice chic furnishings.

  • Witchery
    Clothing Retailers    Mascot, NSW

    When you have a bit of time to burn this is a great place to browse the latest trends. I love the quality of witchery clothes and they have nice basics to more luxurious fabrics such as silks and leather. There is a small selection of shoes and accessories. As a loyalty card member, it is hard to shop in other places as getting $15 for spending $150, is a great motivation to keep shopping here!

  • Pablo & Rusty's
    Takeaways    Lane Cove, NSW

    Still love the coffee here and when I am in a rush, I grab a coffee from here and a toastie, knowing my day is starting right.
    The staff are friendly and are alway up for a laugh and the locals love it here, often bringing the whole family, including the dog. There are renovations happening in the surrounding areas, but the staff are very good about it all and the construction doesn't seem to be phasing the patrons. I would highly recommend this place~

  • Youi Insurance
    Insurance    Sydney, NSW

    If you don't drive your cars often I would highly recommend Youi! The phone assistants are very friendly, communicative and helpful. We save around $200 on our car insurance. The true test however, is when you need to make a claim. Youi were super friendly, processed our claim immediately, gave us the address of a repairer and were clear with instructions. I would highly recommend them!

  • Palings Kitchen and Bar
    Restaurants    Sydney, NSW

    Had a great lunch here with a group of friends. Quite quiet on a Sunday afternoon but the venue is very clean and has a warm and friendly atmosphere. Ordered the chicken schnitty for $18 and it came with chips, sauce and coleslaw. Was delicious and though the portion looked smaller than other pubs, it was very satisfying. The service was quick and on weekdays they have pints for $5 from 5pm to 7pm
