  • This is a great place to have lunch if on the run and if you want somewhere where you can hear yourself talk with your guests. I frequent this place a lot, especially the chinese food, where you order...  more »

  • Thank you to Anisu for all your help in getting me the perfect suit and arranging a hem shortening within the hour. Massive kudos to Benjamin who, 8 minutes before closing time, rushed over to my hotel to bring my new trousers to me, after I had left them at the store when I went to pick up my suit! To David Jones HQ: the Five Stars above belong to these individuals, however, it has to be said that stress could be avoided if you stock trousers that are the right length to start (I'm two inches taller than the average Australian man - there shouldn't be any reason to shorten trousers - but even if you do, this should be a free, and instant, service. You'd no doubt benefit from the additional sales.)
  • If you like shopping then you'll have plenty to do, but the food hall in the basement is great. Lots of fresh meats and bread and cheeses and salads and fruit and plenty more besides. You can 'dine in' with some seating scattered around, or take some yummy goods back home (or to your apartment) or maybe stock up a picnic basket for a lunch in the Botanic Gardens while punting around the lake. Not cheap, but great quality.
  • I was total disappointed at some La mer staff on the ground floor of David Jones in Bourke st. Very rude and indifference. I bought two very expensive products from them several days ago and the staff told me they did n't have sample now and asked me to come back two days later and she would tell another staff that I'm coming to pick up the sample. Two days later, I went there again and waited a long time there and another staff showed and told me she doesn't know. And only gave me one very small sample, saying it worth fifty dollars and their samples are rare. Come on. You just got samples in. If I know this, I wouldn't spend my time going to city. And she's so impatient and seems like hope I can leave asap. This is the worst time of my shopping experience in Melbourne. I experienced the service of la mer in DJ Chadstone, which is much better than that in bourke st. I'll never come back to the la mer counter in city again.
  • Significantly less range provided than its competitor in Myer and is of a premium price but is unable to deliver on the quality of the apparell
  • Good quality department store with an above average range of better quality goods and helpful staff.
