‘Living in Chatswood as I do, I have witnessed a thriving community increasing in energy and community spirit,’ says Dr Taylor. Here, we take a look at some of the local dentist’s personal highlights of the town and the services they provide to the Chatswood community.
Vibrant restaurant and cafe scene
While Dr Taylor loves to cook classic dishes or barbecue at home, he says he can’t compete with the wonderful Asian restaurants in Chatswood. He recommends The Golden Bo Restaurant on Archer Street or newly opened Mamak for Malaysian fare.
If you’re on your lunch break, Neridah Street Cafe serves fine Californian Rolls and freshly cut sandwiches. With a burgeoning coffee scene it’s easy to find a perfect cappuccino. Steam Engine and Rossini are stand outs, says Dr Taylor.
