seanaussie Local Star

My name's 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.

  • Sizzler
    Restaurants    Carramar, NSW

    Visited here today for the first time in ages, they've trended their food up in terms of presentation, plus their salads are a bit more modern. Prices are the same (not super cheap but you'll get a decent feed) & service the same too. Perhaps most importantly the cheese toast is delicioso and seemingly unlimited. Clean area, friendly staff, good food - so 4 stars from me.

  • BWS
    Bottle Shops    Salisbury Plain, SA

    Keep your eyes open if you're looking for this BWS because it is off the road, though the bonus of that is there will never be any parking hassles as it's part of a big group of buildings.
    Medium sized store, but a good number of staff to help/serve which makes life easier especially as they are friendly in my experience.
    I found they did have decent amounts of stock and their prices are certainly the best in the area, there's not another BWS for quite a ways - will be back.

  • Burwood Library
    Libraries    Burwood, NSW

    Just had the chance to visit this after its renovation and have to say they've done a great job of making this a comfortable space with a modern neat spacious design. The weakness as I see it, however, is that there's so much space that it doesn't actually feel like there's all that many books!
    Added to this, putting the youth books on a whole separate floor to the younger kids' books is a bit odd as it splits families up.
    However it's certainly a nice place and if the book collection grows it'll be even better.

    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.
