    I died and went to sugar heaven! I do agree with the other reviewer it was very loud in there. I had the caramel scroll with ice cream and Nutella sauce. It was honestly to die for. Great place to come if you need a really big sugar hit!
  • Copacabana Shores

    Hotels Copacabana, NSW
    Although the staff are extremely friendly and welcoming, we didn't quite enjoy our stay here. The room smelt of egg as soon as we arrived. It appeared to be well kept and clean. My partner had a shower and found that if you turned the taps on too much the pipes in the walls was making a very loud squealing sound. We thought nothing of it and adjusted the tap so that it would stop. When we went to bed we noticed there was crumbs in the bed! Then after midnight the pipes started squealing again very loud! This happened all night. Didn't get much sleep. The hotel was very apologetic and was aware of the problem, they refunded us our money. I would probably stay here again only under the conditions that the maintenance is 10/10.
  • Hotel Harry

    Restaurants Surry Hills, NSW
    I recently visited here for a work Christmas lunch and we went up to the rooftop. My first impression wasn't too impressed but I was proven wrong. The food here is so delicious, tasty and fresh!! Great place to come here for a few beers and finger food if your looking to get away from work!
  • Zeus Street Greek

    Cafes Dulwich Hill, NSW
    This is a newly opened franchise and I must say this one was better than the one in Drummoyne. Not as busy and the man at the counter was very welcoming and helped us with the menu. I had the pork pita which was just delicious! Can't wait to go back again and try the gyros!
  • Ciao Bella Salon

    Cosmetics & Beauty Retailers Darlinghurst, NSW
    I love coming here! The ladies that work here are very friendly and efficient. I visited here two days ago to get my summer spray tan ready for NYE and the ladies always greet you when you walk in and are very fast when they spray tan. My spray tan always comes out really natural looking and I always get compliments. I would definitely recommend this place to any of my girl friends if they are looking for a quick spray tan.
  • Five Dock Supabarn

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores Five Dock, NSW
    I love Supabarn! They have really fresh meat and chicken here. I visited yesterday to grab some last minute items for NYE celebrations and am always impressed with it. The shelves are always kept tidy and clean and its not always busy so you're never bumping into anyone.
  • Costco

    General Retailers Lidcombe, NSW
    WOW! I cannot believe the amount of items they have all in bulk! Its crazy! We came here to stock up for some New Years celebrations and was really impressed. Its best to buy in bulk here otherwise you won't get the bargains. The ladies at the counter are friendly and helpful.
  • Fisherman's Wharf Seafood Restaurant

    Takeaways Pyrmont, NSW
    Delicious! Came here with friends to celebrate Christmas and was blown away! The menu stated MSG but we couldn't taste it in the food. It was fresh and delicious. The mud crab is very nice in ginger and shallot sauce. A little bit expensive but definitely all worth it
  • Basket Brothers

    Cafes Sydney, NSW
    Recommend that you grab the fattoush salad. Its fresh and delicious! The falafel is moreish! The guys here are also friendly and good looking!
  • Waterman's Lobster Co.

    Restaurants Potts Point, NSW
    Such a great wine list to go with the amazing lobster rolls. Both the Maine and Connecticut rolls are amazing, the soft buttery rolls accompany the lobster perfectly. Make sure you order the pickle and fries on the side!
  • Emperor's Garden Seafood

    Restaurants Haymarket, NSW
    My first experience of Yum Cha and can safely say that I enjoyed myself! Although the waitresses are a bit pushy and ruthless. You don't want to get in their way. My favorite was the salt and pepper squid. The dumplings were OK.
  • Bennelong Restaurant

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    Stunning restaurant! We felt like specimen because the walls are all glass so everyone on the outside can see you dining. I came here for a client Christmas lunch and was very impressed with the service! I would rate the service better than the food. The food was very delicious although I wasn't blown away. The presentation of the food was 10 out of 10 though. I'm not sure if Id come back here again... unless work was paying for it again!
  • Flowermart

    Florists Leichhardt, NSW
    The flowers that I received as a early Christmas gift were beautiful. The layout was amazing and the arrangement was very elegant. Although when I smelt them they stunk of cigarette. The other disappointment was that I received someone else's personal card. The message that was supposed to be written for me was for someone else.
  • The Beauty Bar

    Makeup Artists Sydney, NSW
    This is the best nail place I've ever been to. The experience is lovely I can justify paying $80 for a pedicure! The ladies here are so lovely and gentle. They take their time and don't rush you. The Shellac always lasts at least two weeks whereas other places I've visited sometimes my nails chip after 5 days. I also had my eyebrows threaded by a lovely girl who was able to fit me in without an appointment. Although she was quite rough she did an excellent job on my eyebrows. Very happy!
  • Amatos Liquor Mart

    Bottle Shops Leichhardt, NSW
    They stock every type of alcohol you can think of. Whats good about this place is the rare types of beer that you can't normally find in other liquor stores. This shop is huge so if you're looking for something in particular its best to ask a staff member for help. The guys here that work here are also very friendly and are happy to help you whenever you're in need.
  • Bamboo Dumpling Bar

    Restaurants Surry Hills, NSW
    I came here with a big group of people and all of my table decided to go for the banquet. So much food is given when you order the banquet at such a cheap price! I ordered the Thursday special and got BBQ pork with greens and rice. It was delicious for such a cheap price. I would definitely recommend this place if you're looking for something yummy to eat really quick.
  • Aldi

    Supermarket & Grocery Stores North Strathfield, NSW
    Who doesn't love Aldi! Aldi allows you to cut your grocery bill in half. They have plenty of good quality ingredients. This one in particular the shelves are stocked well, they are organised and plenty of staff around to help you if you're looking for something. The parking situation is a bit crazy though.
  • The Morrison Bar and Oyster Room

    Restaurants Sydney, NSW
    Came here today for a client Christmas lunch and was very impressed! The waiter was lovely and friendly and helped us choose some nice cocktails to start with. They have a wide menu that caters to all palettes. Our food came out so quickly we barely had any time to chat! The food is high quality and really fresh. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone if you're looking for a good feed. Although I would say that the cocktails were a little light on the alcohol.
  • Summer Hill Village Quality Meats

    Butchers Summer Hill, NSW
    Lovely butcher. The staff make you all feel very welcome when you walk in. They also have very reasonable priced meats and sausages.
  • Kansas City Shuffle

    Cafes The Rocks, NSW
    New cafe in the heart of the city and right opposite this beautiful hidden Church. Staff are super friendly and tentative. The food is pretty good but wasn't a huge fan of the bacon steak that came with my poached eggs. Great coffee too
