Specialty Foods Street Eats Greek Lamb Yiros Souvlaki Kebab Meat Raw & Marinated 500g.

published

This has to be the most disgusting thing I've ever cooked. It appears to be left over bits of fat and gristle randomly chopped up and marinated in god knows what. I lived 10 years in the middle east and served up kebabs for 4 years so I have some insight.

No problems. Happy with service.

published

Have always been happy with customer service. Never had a problem. I read the review about lamb chops. No offense but lamb chops the same at opposition stores "C" and "W" -- fatty as well. Buy from a farmer if your fussy.
Like the variety of food. And have been happy with the quality of produce. Trying buy and collect service tomorrow.

From GO to WOAH.

published

This supermarket has gone from top notch to bottom notch almost overnight. The management have become deliberately deceptive and misleading in their marketing strategies. Its crystal clear that Mr.Nick has overcapitalised and expects us to pick up the bill. Sorry buddy, I am tapping out.

HORRIBLE staff

published

Always treated like trash in every foodland!! Terrible staff, nothing except about 6 products Aussie owned everything else is imported!!! Staff need to be fired and hire people who are ACTUALLY trained in customer service! Pasadena foodland used to be amazing now it's disgusting and their behavior is as old as the patrons!!

To expensive

published

I'd normally shop at Woolworths, but due to convince I thought Foodland today . I purchased two bags of food . Not a large amount of dog food / butter / bread etc . Cost me $137.00 . Now when you walkout of a store with two bags and it cost that amount ? Their prices are very high compared to Coles & Woolworths. My mistake

Love the South Aussies

published

Always so much great value for money.. and their meat and veg is always the freshest and most readily available.. if there's something out of stock, they track it down and follow it up and let you know when they have it.. AMAZING!!

better control of peoples behaviour

published

digusted by the behaviour of people at the frewville foodland. For a supermarket that considers it is better than Coles and Woolies. I don't think so. The staff have a responsablity to make sure people feel safe. The staff are very unpleasant. Live close but won't shop there again

Too expensive

published

I found foodland to be more expensive than other supermarkets. How is it justified, I feel ripped off. I have to travel to buy the bulk of my shopping can't you have prices inline with the Other supermarkets. We've all got to eat, but costing more is a bit unfair. This is the reason there not busy, people go elsewhere and only get supplies if they have too.

Gala Apples from Foodland Athelstone are rubbish

published

I usually buy my fruit from Coles, which always tends to be very good and fresh. In particular, I like the Gala Apples and they are always crunchy when I buy them from there. I recently bought Gala Apples from Foodland and for some reason they are flowery and soft - hate that so much. I threw the whole bag of apples that I bought from Foodland Athelstone in the "green bin". Won't waste my time or money buying fruit from Foodland again. Very disappointing.

I was pleasantly surprised by the range and quality of products. Bravo! What would make it even better would be a diverse range of age and cultures in the Frontline staff.

Foodland North Haven - Really Good

published

Happy with the service there all the time. Food is really good, baked breads are awesome, they put specials on at the end of the night to clear and markdowns are great. The meat can sometimes be a bit hit and miss but overall really happy.

Rudeness at Sefton Park

published

I was overcharged because the checkout operator scanned items twice. When I queried whether this made these items free under the supermarket code I was told it was a human error and I would only receive a refund for being overcharged. When I persisted with the argument that it was their error and therefore it should meet the code, the supervisor became hostile and rude. I was told to take my money and go away. Then she walked away from the counter.
After shopping at Sefton Park for 30 years and ignoring other incidents of false specials etc, I've got to say "enough is enough". My business is going elsewhere.

Specials unavailable

published

There is obviously a problem for Foodland management at Yankalilla re stocking shelves with advertised specials. Being busy has been given as an excuse. It would be expected that the store would be busy at this time of the year and stock orders should be commensurate. At any time of year, however, specials shelves are often empty even in the first few days of a new cycle. Meat specials, canned products and dairy are some of the areas of concern. The issue has been pointed out on several occasions, but the friendly staff seem reluctant to take it up with management.

Dont waste your money on meat in foodland in general

published

Your meat tastes like crap and sickly dont waste your money buying meat because it tastes nothing like what it actually is. One time both
Mum and myself felt sick the day after having spaghetti bolognese the night before the whole lot was wasted and chucked in the bin.

Don't try and hire a carpet cleaner

published

Today my brother and I went to foodland at Hallett cove to hire a carpet cleaner to do the carpets at our mums house.. apparently a driver's license isn't good enough as you need a local address... it's policy apparently.. so we had to go back to her house pick her up and drive back to the food land. Gee it's a shame if your cleaning your mothers house as she's in a wheelchair, or a nursing home or deceased..... we live in the same city, not a different state.. way over the top guys... we can hire a car/trailer with a lot less hassle and wasted time.... common sense is better customer service than ott policy.....

Too late to return to store as it was 1710 and the store already closed...?????

Good luck Judy. Haven't heard from Foodland with a positive reply but hope that on Monday they will reply.
Keep well. We must be aware of 'the arms length rule" To add to the confusion, we all have different length arms !!

But why post in a review site rather than ask them directly?

Jack

Jackasked

Why does the Foodland at Yankalilla frequently run out of advertised specials? The specials shelves can be empty at any time during the cycle, including the first couple of days. This happens regularly, at any time of the year and when I ask about availability, the reply is often that the supplier is responsible for stocking the shelves or the store has been busy! In my opinion both of these issues are easily addressed by effective management. JH
