I'm opinionated Sean & I'll tell you what I think about every type of business! I've been local (lived) in Sydney, Adelaide and Launceston & I've visited every state of Australia - giving my opinion wherever I am of anywhere that either annoys me, amazes me or ably accepts me into their establishment! So no matter where you are I reckon my experiences will help you avoid the bad and find the good. If so, let me know by leaving a comment (even if you disagree).

  • Hungry Jack's

    Takeaways Firle, SA
    I'm pretty sure this was Adelaide's first Hungry Jack's. Unfortunately I wouldn't call it Adelaide's best.
    Staff member seemed unable to understand a simple order, couldn't do icecreams but had no real alternative for the free one I had a voucher for.
    Burger was acceptable but not great, fries the same.
    Dining room was dirty including some random containers on a chair (? Maybe supposed to be there to catch leaks). Poor form.
  • Para Hills 365 Days Medical Centre

    Medical Centres Para Hills, SA
    To be honest, I only visited here because it was open on a Sunday and bulk billed. I didn't expect much - but I was surprised! The surgery itself is clean and new, receeption staff were friendly and helpful, no waiting at all (and it had been easy to make an appointment online). The doctor was good - I wouldn't say 'excellent', but he certainly knew what he was doing and helped us out. I took some results to my regular GP rather than him and was pleasantly surprised when the Dr from here rang the next day just to see if we had gotten the test results and to follow it up.
  • Humbug Scrub Wildlife Sanctuary

    Pet Boarding One Tree Hill, SA
    It's hard to write anything negative about a place that is founded on the need to rescue Australia's native wildlife. So let me talk about the positives: Cheap entry (literally $2), open spaces, passionate volunteers, and a long history that tells me they're genuine. They clearly live on a shoestring too.
    On the negative side, it's not the prettiest place to visit (although it is genuinely 'bush' if that's what you like), the enclosures and paths could do with some TLC - especially given that I visited on their open day and paths were blocked by uncleared trees etc. BTW on that, this isn't a great place to take kids in strollers as it's not easily accessible. It's also not a great place to go and actually feed or pet animals, they're largely in cages or roped off areas. It's an 'ok' place to go and see animals though.
    Having said that, they do well what they are set up to do and that's worth 4 *'s.

  • 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.
  • opinionatedsean Local Star reviewed KFC
    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.
