Chadstone has two food courts, including a few random cafes scattered throughout the shop, so wherever you are you know that you'll be able to grab a drink and bite to eat wherever you go.
Some food places in Chadstone include Macdonald's, Hungry Jacks, KFC, Salsa, Subway, Sumo Salad, and a few Indian/Asian/Chinese places.
Chadstone caters for people of all ages as it has the fashionable shops for the young girls (Diva, Supre, Jayjays) clothes shops for older women (Suzannes, My size) men's shops (AFL store, Gamesworld, various men's clothes shops). There's also shops for the kids (Toys R Us, K-mart, Target) including a playground right near Toys R Us in case the kids need a break from shopping. Also upstairs is a whole range of very expensive designer stores such as Chanel and Gucci.
Need kids clothes? Pop into Best n Less, Cotton on Kids and Pumpkin Patch.
There is also a Myer, David Jones and the Apple Store if you have any phone problems.
There is lots of kiddy entertainment for the school holidays including AMF bowling (right near JB Hi Fi and Macdonald's) Hoyts cinemas, Timezone indoor arcade centre, and build a bear workshop.
Go and see a movie at Hoyts in Chadstone (ground floor, right next to Timezone) it is such a nice cinema and very big. Have a bite to eat at the Pancake Parlour or the coffee/cafe shop, sushi train or Nando's before going to see a movie.
Chadstone never fails to satisfy all my needs as a shopper, I think I use Chadstone for all my shopping needs and entertainment needs.
If you're close to Chadstone I suggest you take the kids there during the school holidays. There is lots to do and even a mini playground they can go on if you want to have a quick look in Best n Less.
Best part is, you don't have to pay for parking.
All relevant shops are kind of close to one another so you won't find yourself walking far distances.
