    bear reckons:

    slightly staggered at this accidental find during a lunch hour, how could an $8 parma be any good? It comes with a pot of draught so there's a head start. Its a no nonsense parma and chips, with no salad or veg. The structure is spot on, crispy crumbing, nice thinly sliced ham, some tasty napoletana style sauce, good lashing of grilled mozzarella, a good clean butterflied chicken breast and a good serve of salty crisp chips. Really tastes nice and like a good pub parma, and its terrific value so the bonus point. Clean little venue, and the beer by itself is great value also. Recommend.

    Parmaman reckons:

    If your up for food poisoning then head down to Golden Age. But seriously, in my experiences at this place, the 2nd time you get a meal its great but the first one that comes may be raw/sickening. Twice out of 5 times eating here I've seen a parma literally raw in the centre, the 2nd one is pretty solid. I guess if you could convince them to make a parma and then chuck it in the bin then start over and give you the 2nd one; then this place would be worth while. The staff/general feeling of the place is that of a morgue. There is a general fawlty towers feeling about the place which is nice in some respects for a little bit of show while you eat. The parma itself was cheap as hell, they don't have a website for me to check and I'm not game to go back and find out; but it was under $10 so I guess you can't expect a masterpiece. With a hop skip and a jump you can go to the colonial and get an amazing parma so don't waste your time.
