seanaussie Local Star

I'm Sean & I've lived in Sydney, Adelaide, Launceston & visited every state of Australia - that's why they call me seanaussie! So I've reviewed anywhere that either annoys me, amazes me or ably accepts me into their establishment! I hope my reviews help you as you travel around too.

  • Harry's Bar

    Pubs & Bars Adelaide, SA
    This is in the old Tatersall's building which gives it an 'old' feel, downstairs to be honest that isn't a great look as it looks like a 70's bar complete with dagginess - but upstairs is a different matter altogether.
    The balcony is a real stunner, but book if you want it as it's often busy. It's just the right place to sit and watch the sun go down with a corona after work.
    Speaking of Corona, their drinks are incredibly well priced - especially with their specials like Friday night $5 all drinks. Even without the specials they're well priced and bar staff are attentive and helpful too.
    Food is super well priced, I had their 'famous' $10 burger & drink deal and it was certainly tasty. Didn't come with chips but the $6 chips I bought more than compensated for that - beware if you buy that you'll need a big tummy or a friend to share with!
    Stacks of seating, though it can be noisy if it's busy. All up though it's a great spot especially if you're in a group.

    Toys & Computer Games Retailers Modbury, SA
    It's big - and that means a lot of stock. The con of this is it's just massively busy and there's only this one little counter with room for 2 staff max. Staff are knowledgable and friendly though, one walked me through the whole process of buying games for a new machine without being stressed about the busyness of the store & people waiting. Knew what I'd need to know and expressed it in a great manner.
    Great sales manner too, not pushy nor judging what I wanted to buy and I even ended up with a 10 cent voucher because a couple of trade-ins came to 10 cents more than what I bought - that's honesty!
  • Coles Express

    Petrol & Service Stations Golden Grove, SA
    The store attached to this servo is huge - and the prices aren't nearly as bad as I'd imagined. For $10 I walked away with chocolate, lollies & Iced coffee - all the essentials for a road trip (along with the $50 of petrol I came for!).
    Lots of pumps, fast flow so no delays and enough space to get in and out easily.

  • Step one to good rental service: Don't show a rental house with a stink, mouldy food, cans & bottles strewn round, furniture broken & broken locks.
    Step two: If someone like us puts our faith in the promise that it could be cleaned & that you'd contact us to arrange the rental in our required timeframe then just do it.
    Not sure either of these are unreasonable but since you don't seem to be able to do them then it's 1/2 star for you & advice to pull your act up or be ignored.
    • Hi Ray White.
      Hoping this helps jog your memory.

      On Saturday 19th December 2015 at 11.20am my family inspected your property on Altola Rd Modbury (the property in question).
      One other party inspected the house - they were Iranian.
      A male showed us the house, he wasn't the agent but assured us he would pass our interest on to Jane (the agent). He took our name & number on his sheet.
      The house has a glass door leading through to a living room coming off the dining room, and a/c in the living room plus one of the bedrooms.
      I believe the previous tenants had been forcibly removed.
      We also rang your office at 9.05am on the 21st December to advise we'd bring our application paperwork in after speaking to Jane. The receptionist told us Jane was on the phone but would get back in touch with us.
      We have never heard back from Jane.

      Hopefully this helps you follow this up - I did not contact you as we were no longer interested in the property due to the above experience.

    Visiting here today was like a rerun of a bad movie. Maybe the movie 'Frozen' - you'll see why in a minute!
    After 3 years of not visiting here, in a rush we came through today. Order taking was a bit quicker than 3 years ago, but it still ended up being a long visit as it took them ages to prepare our 3 tiny meals. It's a tiny kitchen but I counted 5 staff in it all looking at each other, perhaps trying to work out where the chicken was (they actually did run out of fillets after my order?!?)
    Then came the frozen bit. As my wife bit into her original fillet burger, she mentioned it was cold. Then she noticed the bread & lettuce was actually not just cold, but frozen! I took one feel of my zinger works burger and sure enough it was also cold. A bite confirmed that my bread & lettuce too was...frozen!
    So I went up to the counter (we were the only customers in the store). The staredown began as the 5 staff looked busily around at each other in the kitchen & I waited at the counter. After 1 minute had passed, I actually had to call out to them. To their credit when I gave them the burger they immediately offered to replace it (my wife had just taken off the frozen parts because she doesn't like lettuce anyway!). There was no apology, just an offer to replace it.
    After a couple of minutes they brought my burger to the table with a rather muted and very quick apology. I'm a bit confused about this as it was incredibly clear that there was a problem with the bun & lettuce: anyone who even took a brief feel of it would know that it was frozen, even through rubber gloves.
    Can you guess what happened next? Yep, a frozen re-run! I honestly thought I must have been imagining it, but got my wife to check and lo and behold my second zinger works burger also contained frozen lettuce and partially frozen bun. I really truly can't believe they didn't notice this this time.
    So I followed my wife's lead, took the lettuce out, broke off the frozen part of the bun & left vowing to never return again.
    (I did give them half a star as my daughter's popcorn chicken wasn't frozen...Infact they were so hot she couldn't eat them at first!!)
    • Just thought it fair to add that after I wrote this review they called me to sincerely apologise & offer a voucher for a free meal. Well done on their behalf.
