    When this $15 lunch special came to the table I had such high hopes it looked so big, perfectly browned on top, had the ham, looked thick and juicy and they even gave some T sauce on the side! I soon found out I got what I paid for, the parma was just way too bready, the thickness of the bread was probably more than the chicken, and for some reason the chicken also had a bready texture and flavour. I didn't have the sensation of eating something meaty. It was almost like I was not eating a parma at all! Very sad that I won't be going back for this one :(

    It's alright for $15 (lunch special). Chicken was good and flavours were not too bad. After reading other reviews I specifically asked for chips to be separate, as you can see they gave me a bowl, nice!

    This was a pretty average parma, the thing that ruined it was putting the parma on top of the chips AND Salad, covering the bottom in balsamic salad dressing. not very nice taste. The untainted side was much better but still pretty average. Dont go out of the way for it and its a pretty poor effort for the price. But if you need a parma at least its real chicken.

    Another week....another parma. This time i tried the Mexi parma. I've never had one before and if all of them are like this then i guess they're not for me. chicken was smothered in sour cream and guacamole.....it was like a soup! But by far the most bizarre thing was the layers in which it was made - top layer was the sour cream and guac, then cheese, then ham, then corn chips????????? then chicken...... confused....In hindsight the chicken was quite good. I found myself scraping a whole lot of topping off and just eating it as more of a schnitzel so the speak. Chips were not only served under the soup/parma (which in turn were covered in sour cream and guac) but were stone cold and tasted like rubbish. -1 point for the meal overall (you can attribute it to any of the above flaws.)

    $12.00 Monday special. Can't go wrong. Pretty good parma for the price. Served on top of the chips unfortunately. -1 point for the rude bloke behind the bar taking orders that me made feel like i was taking his first birs child by placing an order. Needs some work.

    firstly, negative 1 point for the price! If you can offer a $12 parma nigth and than $15 lunch special what the fuck?!?
    the overall parma was ok, not amazing - NOT WORTH $24! topping pulled off as I chopped into it, chicken was good quality though and it did have ham.
    chips were barely viewable as they were getting squashed and soggy underneath my parma. the few non soggy ones I got weren't that great anyway.
    the salad was amazing, but it would wanna be because if you want a salad here you'll be looking at $22 anyway!!
