  • Ikea
    Department Stores    Rhodes, NSW

    Sydney's insatiable appetite for flat-packed, affordable furniture seems to be growing and now there are 2 IKEA stores in our fine city.
    Since Tempe opened, this ikea seems to be less crowded on a weekend, but it is still a little tricky navigating the store without bumping into people.
    I love looking at the displays to see what living in a mini home would feel like. I often reflect in my own disheveled living spaces and wonder how ikea manage to keep things so orderly.

    Bought a few more items such as a shoe cabinet and a table- will be back for more!

  • Hillside Hotel
    Pubs & Bars    Castle Hill, NSW

    Came here to try the $10 meals! The tone was delicious, the portion is perfect at 300g for a lady, but the men found the portions a little small. The venue has a nice atmosphere and there are lots of group tables. There is also a larger area upstairs which has a Mexican restaurant and bar, but you still order from the downstairs menu. The staff are friendly but we came on a busy day so our food took about 40minutes to be ready. Will come here again especially for the $10 steak!

  • Gelateria Gondola
    Ice Cream & Frozen Yogurt    Chatswood, NSW

    Great authentic italian gelato. There was a little crowd gathering outside this gelato store, located close to the PapaRich outlet in Chatswood. There were over 20 flavours that were avaliable including tiramisu, pistachio, vanilla and fragola (strawberry).
    The service was quick and the gelato was incredibly delicious. Two scoops for $7.50 or one scoop for $5.

    Will definitely come again!

  • Jigsaw
    Clothing Retailers    Chatswood, NSW

    Still love this Jigsaw store, it is larger than it looks with a larger section at the back where the dressing rooms are located. The fabrics are gorgeous and the cuts are very nice. Find some nice cardigans and blouses in here for the colder weather. The prices are dearer than other high street stores, but they are unique classic pieces that you will wear for many years.

  • Mimco
    Clothing Retailers    Chatswood, NSW

    Mimco has nice accessories which a unique modern flair. This store is one of the larger ones and there are a great selection of handbags and jewellery. Bags cost around $400 which is a little price, but the designs and the materials are of good quality. The staff are very busy and depending on how many people are in the store, their service is a little hit and miss. Great for a browse!

  • Camilla
    Fashion    Chatswood, NSW

    Beautifully merchandised kaftan filled store. Camilla's signature prints and details are overflowing with silky elegance in this newly opened boutique. There are rows of brightly coloured kaftans, tops and swimwear. They also have a good selection of accessories such as pillows and tech cases.
    The staff look amazing on their on season Camilla outfits. Makes your heart long for warm summer days...

  • Three Beans Coffee Vanilla Mung
    Cafes    Chatswood, NSW

    One of the busier cafés in Chatswood, this franchise coffee house makes a decent cup and has lots of seating. The service is good but there is limited food to choose from, primarily sandwiches and light meals. Good service and a nice place for a quick pick me up when you are shopping.

  • Chantillys
    Cafes    Chatswood, NSW

    I love walking past to look at the beautifully presented cakes. Lots of desserts to choose from including lemon meringue, baked cheesecakes and chocolate cakes.

  • Commonwealth Bank ATM
    ATM    Chatswood, NSW

    Try the 'card less' withdrawal feature if you have the commbank app. Let's you withdraw money without your card, just just enter the code from your app when you at to the ATM. Look on the bottom left of the menu when you get to the ATM machine...Ahh technology!

  • Moochi Chatswood
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    Still a great dessert place with lots of toppings and friendly service. The outdoor seating area is a little chilly these cold winter nights, but you can always eat your moochi while walking through the shops. My go to dessert when the Chatswood markets are on!

  • Chatswood BBQ & Hot Pot
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    Love coming here for my Chinese fix. Good BBQ selection from soy sauce chicken to duck. They have set menu combinations, we often get two BBQ meats and a dish for $32. Comes with tea and rice, I usually love the scrambled eggs and king prawns.

  • Sydney Fish Market
    Seafood    Pyrmont, NSW

    It is so busy here but it is quite fun seeing all the hustle and bustle. The seafood is super fresh and there is something fun about buying a whole slab of fresh sashimi for lunch :) the crowds are a bit much but if you embrace the experience it makes for a memorable day. Parking is $3 for the first hour.

  • Tiffany & Co.
    Jewellery & Watch Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    Tiffany and co is super busy on a weekend with lots of people buying trinkets and shiny silver pieces. I stood there for a good 20minutes waiting for service. The staff are lovely and are just working very hard to service everyone. People come in and try lots of pieces and it takes a while, as each staff members gives their full attention.

  • David Jones
    Department Stores    Sydney, NSW

    A great David jones, the food hall is quite an experience with beautiful displayed grocery products. The staff are so polite and helpful and the produce is so fresh and of high quality. The prices are pretty high but it is in an upmarket department store. Try some of the fresh produce or sit down at some of the mini eateries in the food hall.

  • Camilla David Jones
    Department Stores    Sydney, NSW

    A beautifully merchandised concession store within David jones. Esperience the bright colours and intricate details of Camilla's latest collections in this kaftan filled corner of the flagship David jones store. The staff are very friendly and there are hundreds of styles. They also stock accessories such a computer covers and jewellery.

  • Sake Restaurant & Bar
    Restaurants    The Rocks, NSW

    Had a great time here attending a private party. The staff are so welcoming and friendly. The food was delicious, fresh and beautifully presented sushi and sashimi. The Edemame was so delicious and came in a giant bowl... I clearly ate a lot of it because it was all gone in a few minutes.
    I really loved the teriyaki chicken which is actually a whole piece of thigh, perfectly poached and lightly drizzled with a sweet and complex flavoured teriyaki sauce... The popcorn prawn with chilli mayo is also amazing!
    Great atmosphere, warm and inviting ambience and lots of seating. It was pretty busy so I would recommend you book a table. Great place to impress friends or for a special occasion.

  • Lok Lok Dumplings
    Takeaways    Castle Hill, NSW

    Great dumplings and a good alternative to yum cha when I am craving some prawn dumplings. The service is fasts and because it is in the food court there are plenty of seats.

  • Four Birds
    Cafes    Darwin, NT

    A great little cafe hidden away in the old cinemas. The coffee is fantastic, so much so that I stayed for a few hours, reading my kindle and sipping on a flow of lattes...
    The toasted sandwiches are delicious, I have an open toastie of avocado, tomatoes and fresh pepper. It's the simple pleasures! The cafe is off the main shopping strip smith street and you can also grab a takeaway coffee to take with you to walk along the promenade.

  • Michel''s Patisserie
    Cake Shop    North Sydney, NSW

    Located in the food dominated area of this mall, Michel's recently opened its doors. Unfortunately, this store isn't doing very well. Even after handing out free coffees in the morning it was difficult to garner supporters. It is clearly too competitive in the coffee market in North Sydney.
    There are lots of cakes and baked treats, but the taste isn't as good as other stores in the area. The service is friendly and the staff try to make the service smooth, but it is really hard being a franchise in this area.

  • Miracle Supermarket
    Supermarket & Grocery Stores    Macquarie Park, NSW

    A bright new Chinese grocery store that has opened in the new quarter of the renovated macquarie shopping centre. Lots of Chinese sauces, Asian curry pastes and soup bases. Fresh veges line the front of the store and the aisles are wider than other miracle supermarkets.
