  • Trims Fresh Leichhardt
    Fruits & Vegetables    Leichhardt, NSW

    I really enjoy shopping here; produce are fresh and prices are fair. Love the deli department where it is packed with a variety of yummy salami, olives, pate, olives, cheese and other cold cuts.

    If only I live close enough to this store...

  • Thai Kitchen Frenchs Forest
    Restaurants    Frenchs Forest, NSW

    If you want a hearty yet affordable Thai takeaway that is fresh and tasty, you won't be disappointed here. Although a takeaway business, this joint has indoor dining as well as outdoor with toasty gas heaters for their guests on a cooler occasion.

    Run by a bunch of Thai, this place serves up some really good noodles and rice dishes and you won't be let down by their generous serving portions either. Just be warned, they can get really busy and meal times, especially on a Friday.

  • HomeWorks Bed Bath N Table
    Department Stores    Chatswood, NSW

    A nifty little shop tucked away on the Archer Street end of the building, away from the main crowd, I think it deserves more attention. This Bed Bath N Table stocks some items different to the other ones I have been to, which I really like.

    The shop assistants are friendly and easy to approach, making my purchase a breeze. What I like about this store is that I can browse and not get hassled and yet I can easily get the service I require. This place has now become one of my favourite haunts.

  • San Ma Ru Korean Cuisine
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    This restaurant looks new, it has glass walls and bi-fold doors that open up to an al fresco dining, contemporary interior with plentiful natural lighting which nice. However, one thing to note is the acoustic within the premises; so bad it makes having conversation rather difficult.

    Food is just ordinary although the seafood pancake is not too bad. The grilled beef is quite sugary, not fantastic but the kimchi accompaniments are very tasty.

    Pricing is affordable, especially the lunch menu. I can't say that I will be back in a hurry but if I do, I will definitely try different dishes.

  • Domino's Pizza Forestville
    Takeaways    Forestville, NSW

    This Domino's outlet has in the past months served up some bad pizzas more but this time it is WORSE! Scant topping is not the only problem, the base has hardly any sauce while several slices of our pizza have virtually nothing on it, besides cheese. Disappointed, or rather VERY disappointed to find out only after we've been home. NOT going back ever again!!!

  • Wheel & Barrow
    Department Stores    Chatswood, NSW

    It's a great shop stocked with nice kitchen and table wares and some beautiful decorative items. Unfortunately, I was not able to find what I was looking for on this occasion even though the staff was very friendly and helpful.

    I will definitely return in the future.

  • Lang Suan Thai Street Food
    Specialty Food    Eastgardens, NSW

    It's a cute little eatery with the concept of street food Thai style, just like its name suggests. The table settings are a tat funky made from recycled materials, but far from comfortable with a couple of tables a little low for dining.

    The food is otherwise very tasty although the portion is smaller than ideal. A side dish would be in order to help supplement the main.

    I just found out that they are open for dinner only on Thursdays as they close early on other days of the week.

  • ANZ
    Banks    Frenchs Forest, NSW

    This is a small banking facility with open concept where you'll walk past several desks providing difference services before you get to the tellers. In this case, you'll hear every bit of a conversation or, argument while waiting to be served by a teller due to the complete lack of privacy and soundproofing. Rather disappointing that the bank overlooked the privacy and noise factor.

    On a positive note, the teller who served me was although not the quickest, she was friendly and full of smiles, also efficient at her tasks. I was pleased that my transaction was completely quickly with ease.

  • Makoto Chatswood
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    This place is always busy when I walk past it so I decide to have a try.

    Although busy, there are always seats in the rear of the restaurant and I am always seated within seconds of arrival.

    The sushi selection is great; it includes premium items like sea-urchins, salmon roe and quality tuna. There are also the standard choices of grilled salmon, barramundi, scallops, unagi, cooked tuna and etc.. What makes this sushi restaurant great is you can also order a small serve of udon in soup with chicken or tempura for $5 each.

    The food is delicious and fresh; just what every customer looks for in a restaurant.

    The wait staff are generally attentive although on one occasion our waitress made a mistake in one of our orders but that was corrected quickly without a fuss.

    Definitely coming back.

  • Sapore Della Vigna
    Restaurants    Leichhardt, NSW

    It was a quiet night when I was there for dinner. The staff were attentive and friendly but being watched throughout our dinner made us rather uncomfortable.

    The food came rather quickly and I hate to wonder if they were all pre-cooked.

    The soup was alright and the prawns were not all fresh. The salt & pepper squid was so-so in half crispy batter made worse by its condiment that was way too rich. The pizza was a let down with thick soggy base topped with mostly cheese and meagre trimmings as thin as hair.

    Sorry, I can't recommend this place.

  • Khao Pla
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    I just have to revisit Khao Pla. This time, it was as good as the first time; great friendly service and very delicious authentic Thai food. What blew me away was their dessert. An assortment of Thai specialties on a plate including jackfruit, tea ice cream, sago and more! It was so good I didn't want it to finish...

    Now there's more of a reason to return for another meal! I'm loving it!

  • Dan Murphy's
    Bottle Shops    Manly Vale, NSW

    Shopping for alcohol and spirits has never been easier. If you know what you're after, log online to make your purchase and you can pick them up at your preferred Dan Murphy's store location. It is a great service that saves time and efficient. I was out of the store in 5 minutes.

    The staff members were friendly too, making transaction pleasant and easy.

  • N-dumpling Australia
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    If you love dumplings, this is the place to go to. The dumplings are handmade and prepared fresh. Best of all, they are really delicious, especially their dipping sauce!

    One word of caution; the dumplings are very hot because they're served up to you immediately the moment they're cooked. Not an easy thing to do when these deliciously tempting morsels are right before your eyes!

    Thumbs up!

  • ALDI
    Supermarket & Grocery Stores    Frenchs Forest, NSW

    This chain of supermarkets often has great bargains but you need to check back regularly for special buys as their special stock changes. Great selection of frozen foods and ice cream. Their alcohol and spirits are very well priced too.

    To shop here, you should bring your own shopping bags or be prepared to buy some.


  • Farr Fencing
    Fencing Construction    Manly, NSW

    Robin was great to begin with; punctual, friendly and professional when he came to our property to survey our damaged fence.
    A shame that we didn't get to use his service in the end. I must admit that Robin's quote was more than reasonable and given the chance, I'd have chosen Robin to repair our fence for sure. I'll definitely recommend Farr Fencing to anyone who needs fence installation.

  • Forestway Fresh
    Supermarket & Grocery Stores    Terrey Hills, NSW

    Great fresh produce and gourmet grocery store. Glad they have onsite parking which is convenient and plenty of shopping trolleys and baskets as well.

    This store has a wide range of gourmet grocery items like condiments, spices and other dry foods. What I really appreciate most are the fresh cheeses in the open refrigerator, fabulous Greek cheese, which was exactly what I was looking for. I shall pay attention to the other cheeses available the next visit there.

    The fresh produce are great too although certain items are way more expensive than other green grocers. I was also glad to find fresh chestnuts as the big chain of supermarkets don't usually stock them.

    It is a great market and even though a bit dear, I enjoyed browsing through their stock shelves.

  • Northside Glass & Glazing
    Glazier    Manly Vale, NSW

    My phone call was answered quickly and so was my query. Gary was prompt and professional, the businessman of no funny-business. The job was organised and completed swiftly with no issue whatsoever. The quote was reasonable, considering the amount of work involved necessary to ensure a safe installation. Thank you!

  • Sherringhams Nursery
    Nurseries & Gardening Retailers    Terrey Hills, NSW

    Great entrance to the nursery. Some really nice plants; tropical and native but it was unfortunate that I didn't find what I was looking for.

    The staff were friendly without being nosy nor intruding, which was highly appreciated. Worth checking back.

  • Spot on rubbish removal
    Rubbish & Waste Removal    Penshurst, NSW

    These boys worked really well together as a team; courteous, friendly, considerate and efficient. They arrived on time, surveyed the job at hand and moved on really quickly.

    I was pleased with how well and quickly they completed the task with absolutely no fuss. I would definitely recommend these guys and use their service again in the future. Thumbs up!

  • New Shanghai Chinese Restaurant
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    Yes, the place is busy but we were lucky enough to not have to wait. The ambience is bright and modern but the acoustic is BAD. I could hardly hear our conversation at the table but the surrounding noise reflected around us.

    The food was rather ordinary and so was the service. My meal at this restaurant was completely a no-smile experience.

    Not in a hurry to return. Not recommending either.
