  • Lok Lok Dumpling Bar

    Restaurants Hornsby, NSW
    The dumplings here are wonderful. I had the special dumpling fried. 8-10 dumplings cost about $10-$11. 5-7 cost between $5 and $8.

    The staff are very nice. The shop looks extremely clean and streamlined - well thought out.

    Only let down is the location inside a fairly old Westfield food court. Westfield might want to upgrade this one!
  • Tensegrity Clinics

    Massage Wahroonga, NSW
    Great sports massage. The staff here are exceptional. I have recently been strapped here before exercise and massaged.

    Also. They are a brilliant participant in the community. I have seen them at some sporting matches on the sidelines helping players.

    Pricing is great.

    Strongly recommend/
  • Felix Bar & Bistro

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    I have been here for drinks twice. Yet to have a sit down meal but have had a charcuterie board, which was ver nice. The staff are always helpful and seem very knowledgable about the food offerings.

    The drinks are really nice. The cocktail menu skews towards the old fashioned.

    I had my first aviator here!

    All in all, great place for a classy but low key drink in the Sydney CBD!

    Drawback is that angel place tends to smell heavily of urine these days - so maybe enter from the Ivy.

  • I love this place. Massages are really deep and relaxing. There is huge variation between masseurs... so if you go with a friend and get the same treatment dont expect to receive the same thing! Just make sure you book (even if only a little earlier than when you go) as they are very busy.
    • Just went back here. Had a great experience again. Prices seem good and the service was great.
  • 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...
