Very very very helpfull staff!

HSBC

9 Wellesley Rd, Croydon CR9 2AA, UK – 0345 740 4404

Very lovely attendants who you would firstly speak to queue for the advisors. Nice waiting area. However the advisor I encountered provided me with false information and he was really forceful. I'm glad that I knew the correct information online so I wasn't cheated by him. I ended up finishing up my account opening and switch in another branch. It's very appealing so I've made formal complaint and received positive feedbacks from their customer service. Watch out if you ever speak to Nirav S Palan.

Brilliant and professional staff. Possibly because they are all quite young. Good bunch.

HSBC Bank Plc

139a N End, Croydon CR0 1TN, UK – 0345 740 4404

AVOID THE COUNTER SERVICE IF YOU CAN! It's a fine branch if you can use the self-service machines and pop in and out quickly but god help you in the instances you need to queue up to speak to a cashier, which sometimes you've got no choice but to do. - Long queues with people often pushing in without consequences - Inconsiderate and rude staff often at open windows doing their own chores, sometimes even openly having lunch even when there is clearly a long queue of people who've been waiting for ages and are getting frustrated - Too many inexperienced or trainee staff who don't know what they're doing which contributes to the ridiculous wait times - Pens to fill out paying in forms often not working or unavailable Like most banks, these dirtbags make MILLIONS from our deposits and rather than hire staff and make in-branch experiences better using that windfall they instead prefer to help illegally launder money for Mexican drug cartels.

Good customer service and an array of self service machines and coin counter available for account holders ....saves a lot of time especially during busy periods

MK Vasant MBE and Dental Associates

1210 London Rd, London SW16 4DN, UK – 020 8764 1424

Best Dentist in London. Strongly recommend to anyone for private treatment. Dr Manny Vasant is very friendly and caring. My last dentist was never as thorough. The whole team at the practice are warm and professional. The hygienist Ben is a wonderful man full of character. I now look forward to my appointments.

Excellent multi-disciplinary dentist with on site lab.

Smile Dental Practice

79 Addiscombe Rd, Croydon CR0 6SE, UK – 020 8649 7911

Very pleasant staff and excellent service. Dr Melissa Patel is a very talented and friendly dentist. Would recommend 100%

Excellent service. Today not only did Melissa see me at the end of a very busy day as an extra appointment but she was so helpful, professional and kind. I have always rated Smile Dental Practice highly and have been a regular patient since arrival in London 14 years ago but I am particularly delighted with the honest appraisal of current work that needs to be done, pricing, recent appointments and professionalism with which Melissa and her predecessor have treated me. The receptionists and dental nurses are also unfailingly exemplary too.

The Greyswood Practice

66 Eastwood St, London SW16 6PX, UK – 020 8769 0845

I joined this practice in late 2017. Ive not had an amazing experience at other doctors surgeries and i only usually go to the docs if im really ill. This year i had to go several times and on each ocassion was seen by a different doctor. Each doctor i saw was beyond exceptional. They listened and took their time with me and explored every symptom i had. They were thorough and just completely put me at ease. Thank god for these doctors. I feel seriously lucky to be living in this area. Reception team could do with a bit of a nudge but the superb doctors make up for that.

This is the best practice I’ve ever been registered at. Once you have an appointment (which can be a bit of hassle as it’s phone only from 8am for same day bookings - with most gone by 8.15) - all of the staff are friendly and helpful. They have had a fair bit of rotation of GPs and Locums the last year, but it’s settled down again now. Appointments run pretty much on time and they are very accommodating. - especially good with children.

Dr S Y Ganesaratnam - Wide Way Medical Centre

15 Wide Way, Mitcham CR4 1BP, UK – 020 8623 1300

Administration staffs are excellent!! Doctors and nursing staffs do their best. Keep up the good job ladies at the front desk and keep up the good work.

Great surgery the doctors are all very good and it doesn’t matter who you see. Also a great bonus is that the receptionist and admin staff are friendly and very helpful.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Moorfields Eye Hospital

530 London Rd, Thornton Heath CR7 7YE, UK – 020 8401 3486

I have been under Moorfields eye departments at Croydon for a number of years and cannot speak highly enough of their level of care and professionalism. Moorfields took over the eye division at CUH quite a while back and the improvements they have achieved are very impressive. I am therefore loathe to post my feedback from last Thursday but do this in the hope that remedial action can be taken. I attended the eye clinic for a post operation review and waited nearly three and a half hours to be seen by a consultant. He and his support staff were clearly embarrassed by the poor scheduling of the mornings appointments which resulted in horrendous log jams and was plainly due to poor resource planning failure by admin staff. The staff and consultants were , as usual, absolutely excellent .However, I really hope we are not returning to the bad old days of thoughtless appointment booking and appropriate staffing decisions!

Accompanied my apprehensive husband David this morning to have laser treatment to repair a torn retina. Moorfields Eye clinic was busy but efficient. David was duly called into the laser room and towards the end of the10 minute procedure, he passed out. With in seconds emergency help arrived, nurses, doctors, oxygen, porters, paramedics with stretcher. A routine session became a scene out of casualty as they brought him round from fainting. With all of this came a real sense of concern, efficiency, reassurance and true care. Bless all of you and thank you.

Always a pleasure to vist one of my favourite Pizza houses. Situated close to East Croydon station in George street. Good variety of food simple menu. Great to bring kids loved ones and family Groups and what not.

Chiquito

Hesterman Way, Croydon, Surrey CR0 4XP, UK – 020 8774 4710

What an amazing experience. The staff was very pleasant and curtious. The food was served fast and tasted extraordinarily exceptional. Compliments to chef for such an amazing experience. The food melted in our mouth and nothing tasted like it was microwaved or reheated. It tasted fresh. I'm really amazed every time I come to this place I never leave a review and every time I leave this place also feel like coming again. This time 5/5 for customer services, excellent service and tasty food. Thank you for the staff and especially chef.

Was surprised reading the reviews about poor service here, we experienced nothing of the sort. Brilliant service from attentive staff, very nice food and reasonably priced. Nice environment to chill out with friends and/or family and the 2-4-1 cocktails are an added bonus.

Bakhan Restaurant

72 London Rd, West Croydon, Croydon CR0 2TB, UK – 020 8680 8150

I can't really fault this place as a local restaurant. Good large portions, good priced food, not very greasy, good tasting, table service and a clean environment. I enjoyed my meal at Bakhan and will return! If you're looking for a fancy meal, this isn't it, but if you're happy with a local cafe style restaurant with helpful staff and good food, this'll do nicely!

the best iraqi kurdish restaurant in south london, the shawrmer is really nice, lamb or chicken. the rice and multiple kurdish stew, worth trying this restaurant, too good for a local restaurant! there are many restaurants out there they charge high prices this guys Reasonably cheap. the kebab is different to others turkish or any other mediterranean restaurant.another thing i love about bakhan restaurant is, they make every things there fresh, from baking naan bread the salad so many others to be mentioned.i usually go the 2 to 3 times a week ! never been disappointed with my food not event once ! onther good thing you can park your car for 30 minuets free right outside the restaurant. or what i normally do i park my car in lidl store for 1 hour free of charge but i also shop in lidl and register my care in there system to make sure i dont get penalty tickets
