  • Salsa's Fresh Mex Grill
    Restaurants    Chatswood, NSW

    This is an efficiently run outlet selling a decent range of Mexian foods. Whilst it is not fine dining it is adequate and consistent - you know what you are going to get. It is the only Mexican outlet in the Chatswood Chase food court and so greatly improves the variety of food available.

  • Vintage Cellars
    Bottle Shops    Chatswood, NSW

    Located on the ground floor of Chatswood Chase this is a small-medium alcohol shop. It is rectangular with a moderate store front which is very open. Staff are helpful and friendly. Fit out is minimal and clean. The range of wines in particular is good.

  • Mimco
    Clothing Retailers    Chatswood, NSW

    I have had a bad experience with Mimco and agree with previous reviewer that the quality is not there. The prices they charge are high for a very low level of service and to be honest, unoriginal designs. This stores is quite open and trendy occupying a small but organically shaped space.Occasionally I go in for a browse, they have some pretty jewelry (I don't even go near there bags). I also sometimes like their headbands.

    Whilst this is one of the largest stores in the Westfield complex it is only moderately sized for a Rebel. Staff receive some incentive for every item purchased that they manage to tag with their identifying sticker. This makes for eager service, but don't expect expert advice. When it's busy it's hard to find someone to help, but they try to cater to self-service as much as possible. For example shoes of various sizes are stacked for customers to try and buy. Good for sales, good for browsing and an excellent returns policy. Just don't visit with very specialist requirements.

      cant recall) couldnt properly speak to the pros and cons of alternatives. I thought the assistant was helpful, I just didnt think the very specialised product knowledge was there.

      Overall I am very happy with the Rebel value proposition. I enjoy going to one stores and being able to buy most of my sporting requirments. This is reflected in my high star rating.

      Hi Gareth,
      Thank you for your feedback. I have since revisited the Chatswood store as well as the Hornsby and Macquarie stores. I initially thought these two were larger than the Chatswood stores and have been doubting my size-evaluation following your comment. You are correct, the Chatswood store is large, I do however believe is 'feels' smaller because it is long and thin with 'isles' coming off the side. The Macquarie and Hornsby stores are squarer and I think they feel larger. Obviously I haven't compared them square-foot-to-square-foot.
      Regarding expert knowledge, I wouldn't expect Rebel staff would have in depth knowledge about such a diverse product range. I was not criticizing, I was trying to describe the nature of the stores and distinguish it from specialized outlets such as Athletes Foot (specialization in foot wear) or Lulu Lemon (specializing in womens gym wear). My specific reference experience was when buying running shoes, I felt that the assistant (whose name I...

    I tried this cafe for coffee after reading about from a very reputable website regarding good coffee. I try good coffee where ever I go, but to date, this was the very best. These guys know what they're doing. Their aim is clearly to make excellent coffee, and they do it very very well. I'd absolutely recommend this cafe.
