  • GPO Restaurants, Bars, Cafes & Food Emporium
    Restaurants    Sydney, NSW

    I love how this establishment has kept all the heritage building and sandstone walls. Not only is the bar great for a drink, but there's ample restaurants to dine, such as the well known Prime, sushi train, spanish and the cheese/wine area.

  • Fifi Foveaux's
    Cafes    Surry Hills, NSW

    For the area is a safe bet for ok food @ an ok price.

    But venture up/down the Rd for much better places for around the same price.

    The breakfast was good, eggs were cooked well, and coffee was decent.

  • Palmer and Co
    Pubs & Bars    Sydney, NSW

    Great early 19 hundreds ban playing, took a date to P&C and she loved it. We were lucky enough to find some seating (gets really busy on a Saturday night).

    A top place to check out for pre drinks or a date.

  • Ampersand Cafe & Bookstore
    Takeaways    Surry Hills, NSW

    First time coming here, and I highly recommend it.

    Great menu that isn't overly priced like other venues that are close by. The setting is great for a breakfast or brunch as the sun shines down on pretty much the whole place. In/Outdoor seating, quick and service.

  • Ampersand Bookstore & Cafe
    Cafes    Paddington, NSW

    A pleasant place to read a book, have a pot of tea and relax

  • Horden Pavillion
    Venues & Event Spaces    Moore Park, NSW

    A good venue within close proximity to the city, the Horden itself can hold 1,000's of ppl, and with the combination of RHI its pretty massive.
    Good bathrooms, massively high ceilings, and ample parking in the complex or on the Street.

  • Entertainment Quarter
    Venues & Event Spaces    Moore Park, NSW

    This place has some alright outlets, such as Hoyts, Strike bowling and a couple of restaurants, but its so stale, this 'quarter' could be something but its not.
    I only venture to this place for events @ the Horden.
    Their markets are nothing compared to others in the East/City, like Paddington or Glebe.
    And on a Saturday night its rather dead and crowd less.

  • Bodega Tapas Restaurant & Bar
    Restaurants    Surry Hills, NSW

    A hidden gem. I really like their tapas menu, such as Scallops Morcilla, braised cabbage (see member pic - mine), or the steamed pork belly.
    Everything is served to share, and the serving sizes are medium size so order up.
    Cool atmosphere, and funky inside.

  • The Fringe Bar
    Pubs & Bars    Paddington, NSW

    I dined here again last night, i change my mind re the below review. The downstairs space is rather cosy and a little romantic even. While they have kept the pub feel upstairs. My steak so very tough and I didn't really enjoy it, but all the other meals were really nice (so out of 10 9 were great).
    Great service too, quick, helpful and really nice.

  • T-Bar
    Clothing Retailers    Sydney, NSW

    Cheap funky Tee's, loads of options of different prints

  • Flight Centre World Square
    Takeaways    Sydney, NSW

    I love this place for fast food, the chicken is always moist and cooked Portuguese style. Their chips are packed with chicken salt and yummy.
    Plenty of seating indoors, and a wash basin to clean off your greasey mits. The only downer about Nandos is the price around $18 for a 1/2 chicken and chips is a little steep.

  • Ziggy's Barber Salon
    Hairdressers    Darlinghurst, NSW

    Such a great experience, make sure you book!

    Andy, Jamie are the best so try and book one of them. Just like a typical barber, you can have a full face shave with a blade that includes a heavenly facial.
    I've never walked out of here regretting the cut, a top place and around $50 a cut for mens.

  • Ichi- Ban Boshi
    Restaurants    Sydney, NSW

    Top Japanese restaurant, they have one of the best and well known Ramens in the city. Be prepared to queue, but its well worth the wait.
    My fav is the Udon Set, with Salmon Sashimi, rice, and Ramen.

  • Miracle Supermarket Plaza
    Supermarket & Grocery Stores    Sydney, NSW

    A pretty massive stocked Asian grocer with plenty on offer, for a cheap price. They have some fresh produce like meat and vegetables here also.

  • Cosmedical Centre
    Cosmetic Surgeons    Woollahra, NSW

    Such a welcoming place, they offer plenty of procedures and are highly regarded in the industry. Bec was fantastic and I won't hesitate sending more referrals their way.

  • Cosmedico Skin & Laser Clinic
    Skin Care    Potts Point, NSW

    I love the team at this place, for what ever procedure you'll be getting, you always know if you're in good hands. Their prices are quite competitive, especially for the city.

  • Zeta Bar
    Pubs & Bars    Sydney, NSW

    A very classy bar to have a drink after work, or a function. Part of the Hilton. A long and mouth watering cocktail list. A balcony overlooking QVB and George Street, and plenty of room to mingle.

  • Hemmesphere
    Pubs & Bars    Sydney, NSW

    Awesome venue for a cocktail, table service by some very nice look barmaids. A real chilled out feeling, with plenty of lounge seating and dimmed lighting. A little pricey though, but its a fancy establishment.

  • Vbar
    Pubs & Bars    Sydney, NSW

    An ok place to start a night out. Well priced drinks.

  • Speedo's Cafe
    Cafes    North Bondi, NSW

    At the beach and need a snack - everyone comes here. Their burgers are great (chicken is my fav), and I love their smoothies and juices.
