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.

  • The Happy Nut

    Specialty Food Campbelltown, NSW
    As I was enjoying a really tasty mix from these guys I was surprised to find something particularly 'crunchy'. So crunchy it couldn't even be bitten. I was impressed when the company quickly responded to my pointing out of this, however I've gotta say that it took a lot longer than I would have expected to get it all sorted out - including getting a box with a bag in it to return the product in. Eventually I appreciated their response after looking into what it might have been, and that they sent a complimetary product to replace mine. Food was tasty and filling but it was a bit of a downer to go through that.
  • Ferryden Park Laundrette

    Dry Cleaning & Laundry Ferryden Park, SA
    It can be hard to find a laundromat with clean working machines and owners that answer when you need help. Here's somewhere that meets both those criteria. Completely trustworthy, open long hours, helpful phonable owners, and probably most importantly a place that you can go to get your clothes clean & dry!
  • Austral-Asian Chinese Church

    Churches Adelaide, SA
    Despite being called an Asian and Chinese church, there's also a good number of Anglo-Saxan members too, and they have a pastor specifically for their English speaking congregation to cater for 2nd generation Asians too who are more comfortable with English than their parents' languages. Nice feel, friendly staff, I recommend it!
    The location of this church is also fantastic if you're looking to host a meeting or the like - and their facilities are good for small or larger groups.

    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.
