  • Double J Removals And Storage

    Removalists Sydney, NSW
    We just moved into a new home yesterday and Double J provided everything we needed and more -- great communication, a competitive quote, free boxes and packing material, and throw in some friendly banter. Deon and the guys were right on time and his cost estimate was pretty spot on, and everything arrived with no damages. I hope I don't have to move again anytime soon, but I highly recommend the Double J Removals team.

    Great little cafe with heart. The coffee is great, and it's free for the homeless and needy. Love that.
  • Mr. Wong

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    I can't believe I haven't reviewed before. I love what Dan Hong and his team have made this place out to be. Mr. Wong is one of our favourite go-tos for "fancy" Chinese. I love the feel of the place. It is a little dark and sometimes noisy, but I really only care about the food.

    The food doesn't stray far from traditional Chinese and it's like a good Chinese restaurant, but just better all around.

    We have our usual favourites - the wild mushroom dumplings and scallop and prawn shumai from the dim sum menu, the crispy fried Balmain bugs with spicy salt, and almost all of their desserts.

    On our most recent visit, the chef sent out a complimentary dish of poached chicken served with a sesame sauce and Szechuan chilli oil. The chicken is perfectly poached - Hainan chicken style, served cold (room temperature), with pickled cabbage and topped with a vibrant red sauce which looks incredibly spicy, but is actually very balanced.

    Try the cocktails and the desserts too; you won't get stuff like that at your neighbourhood Chinese restaurant. Book ahead if you have a group of 6 or more, or come for an extravagant weekday lunch. Whatever you do, just make sure you come.

    Came here for an impromptu lunch with the family and really loved it. Super fresh ingredients and really interesting menu items. Popcorn prawns, miso cod, teriyaki salmon, everything was delicious. They are a sister restaurant of Sake but in a more relaxed setting. I will definitely be back!
    • They're not a sister restaurant of Sake in The Rocks. I believe they just "took inspiration" from some of Sake's popular menu items. :)
  • Expanding from its already popular shop at Enmore, Great Aunty Three opened a new takeaway corner at the edge of Sydney CBD and Surry Hills. The modern, intimately sized shop braces the outside air from its slightly open atmosphere and provides a few seats for consumers who prefer to eat their food at the premise.

    Great Aunty Three serves all things Vietnamese, ranging from bread rolls, noodle soup, salads, and rice paper rolls. The barramundi noodle salad was freshly made, and although the portion was a little small, it tasted delicious. The rice paper rolls were very fresh and came with thick garlic gravy sauce on the side instead of the usual peanut sauce.

    One good thing about Great Aunty Three is they accept tap payments even on small transactions, something that is quite rare for a small takeaway shop. Having been there several times, I can say that all the staffs are friendly and accommodating.
    • Great tip re: tap payments! I saw your review after I just visited for the first time. I did a tap credit card payment for my purchase, but I was greedy and ordered a couple of things, so it's good to know they accept card payments for smaller purchases too.
  • Easternian Local Star reviewed Mary's CBD
    If you happen to come to Mary's Burger CBD at around lunch time, then expect to line up at the slightly long queue outside this whole-in-the-wall takeaway burger shop. The wait can then take up to around 10-15 minutes and the food preparation another 5-10 minutes, so if you are not really in a rush to try this burger, I would suggest visiting at less busy hours like 5pm.

    The burger offerings are quite limited. At the time of my visit, there were only 5 burgers ranging from $10 to $12 each: Mary's Burger, Cheeseburgers, Chicken burger, Veg burger, and breakfast burger. There are also shakes, soda, and fried to add to your order and make it a perfect combo.

    I bought a cheeseburger and was surprised at how small it was. The presentation was also very bland, and the taste was just alright I could almost compare it with McDonald's $2 cheeseburgers. It certainly did not warrant any return on my behalf. Maybe I should have their fried chicken burger for next time.
    • The fried chicken is worth a try. Would be keen to hear what you think.
