  • Rick's Wok N Noodles

    Takeaways Belrose, NSW
    One of the best laksa's I've had. Simply delicious and well worth the trip there for the soup alone, even if you don't need to shop.
  • Cupparoma

    Cafes Chatswood, NSW
    A handy cafe on the ground floor of the Mandarin Centre. It's so easily wound into the building architecture you could almost miss it. They give a little biscuit with their nice coffee which is a nice touch.
  • Harry's Cafe De Wheels

    Restaurants Tempe, NSW
    Absolutely smashed the pies. The meat inside is decent and the mash, peas and gravy top it off to perfection. The service is friendly too and it's an easy drive up location with in and outdoor seating.
  • Woolworths Ltd

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores Balgowlah, NSW
    I have re-visited this store a few times lately after a bit of a break and I am remembering why I stopped coming here. The shelves are always bare. And then I have to go shopping elsewhere to find everything I need. I really don't think it's the day or time I shop as I'm erratic in my shopping habits, it's just always empty. Well laid out and spacious are the redeeming features.
  • Coles Supermarkets

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores Balgowlah, NSW
    I purposely don't come here if I'm in a rush as you have to park in the shopping mall and walk right the whole way around the mall to get to it and with a toddler in tow, that means it takes ages!!! Always well stocked though.
  • Stockland

    Shopping Centres Balgowlah, NSW
    A good shopping centre with a variety of high street stores. It's a great place to come gift shopping or for yourself, ladies shopping particularly, if you are looking for something quieter than the Mall.
  • Paddington Fresh Foods

    Fruits & Vegetables Paddington, NSW
    My little boy nailed his sausage roll and he's not much of an eater so it must be good. Though we were left with a very oily paper bag. Yikes!!
  • Bilgola Beach Kiosk

    Cafes Bilgola Beach, NSW
    Huge queues today in the scorching heat but the staff were really friendly. They also support dogs in cafes so have a bowl of water for canine friends.
  • Woolworths Ltd

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores Belrose, NSW
    It's a smaller Woolworths so the selection is not really huge but the location is great at the intersection of major roads. Just go to the top floor of the car park for faster parking.
  • Cafe Relish

    Cafes Avalon Beach, NSW
    I enjoyed a delicious special. Smashed avocado with chilli lime and poached eggs on linseed. It was delicious!!!
  • Raj on Taj Indian Restaurant

    Restaurants Avalon Beach, NSW
    A delicious Indian curry based on cashews. However the prawns were tiny in the curry and popadoms not the freshest. They kindly offered a free drink for the wait to pick up takeaway.
  • Jellyfish Cafe

    Restaurants Manly, NSW
    Dinner with Mr under two and I was impressed the staff had brought colouring in as soon as we sat down. He had the kids schnitzel and chips and the breadcrumbs on the chicken were quite strong in flavour for little ones, even I found it too much. I had the chilli prawn linguine and it was good.
  • Sydney Woodworkers Door Window Warehouse

    Wholesalers Brookvale, NSW
    I have had excellent phone customer service over the phone with Bruce who was able to very clearly recommend a window unit to me in my limited description and understanding. Upon visiting the store the excellent customer service continued. Plenty of staff and they understand communicating and assisting customers so well. Thank you
  • The Bathers Pavilion

    Restaurants Mosman, NSW
    Lovely place for breakfast with standard cafe prices. I had the homemade beans with ham and tomato. I wouldn't have minded more than half a tomato but for $20 the rest of the plate was a reasonable size and delicious. Fresh juice is a smaller size glass for $7 so I think it'll be the large for $10 next time. The setting wins the plate however!
  • Scruffy's Doggy Day Care and Grooming

    Pet Groomers Brookvale, NSW
    We organised a late booking on the day and were able to be squeezed in. The place is very clean and pooch came home exhausted. I guess it's better than them being home alone but seeing them all hanging about in small enclosures is a little un-animal-like. The staff for the best part seem friendly and caring.
  • Pet Stock

    Pet Shops Brookvale, NSW
    I came here for the large Advancd dog food which was on sale in the paper. It didn't ring up as such and so I assumed this day was earlier than the sale dates. However the lovely friendly staff member gave it to me st the sale price anyway. That gesture means I will definitely be going back. Thank you.
  • Highgrove Bathrooms

    Indoor Home Improvement Brookvale, NSW
    A great new addition to the area with affordable options for vanities and the rest of your bathroom needs. Parking is handy at the rear.
  • Pattinson's Patisserie Fine Bakery & Cafe

    Cafes Mona Vale, NSW
    This cafe is new so we thought we'd give it a go. The cup cakes and muffin were both dry, it was late afternoon but they tasted like yesterday's. Coffee was good. Service was average. We will give it another go.
  • Lime Lifestyle

    Indoor Home Improvement Fairlight, NSW
    Love this shop, full of beautiful gifts for yourself, like jewellery or a sure find last minute gift for friends. They have a great men's gift selection too.
  • Pillow Talk

    Home Decor Retailers Belrose, NSW
    So much more than just pillows, but their pillow selection is just awesome and so easy to chose from all easily laid out along a wall in colour code. They have an excellent bathroom section with hard to find soap dispensers.
