    I'm a tight arse student and pretty critical of the parmas I eat, keeping that in mind I wouldn't bother with this place unless it's a Tuesday ($15 Parma and Pot). Don't get me wrong there is nothing wrong with the parma but I just don't think it's worth the $20 they charge on their non-special days.

    lazzenbake reckons:

    This was by far the worst excuse for a parma ever. In fact to even have the nerve to classify this abysmal excuse for food as a parma is just insulting. The chicken was an I & J frozen fillet straight out of the supermarket freezer. There was no ham, the sauce was simply tomato paste straight from a can and the cheese was almost no existent. The chicken breast was about 6mm thick an the crumbing was actually thicker then the chicken. It came with only a small handful of fries, no salad and if i wasnt so hungry i would have been asking for my money back. This is one venue to be avoided at all costs.

    $15 for a decent parma and pot. A winning combination. Only problem was the sauce wasn't spread all the way to the edge, so there was some naked schnitzel. Other then that A+++ WOULD EAT AGAIN!!!

    Scott reckons:

    You had better be hungry because this is a big feast. Big parma, lots of chips, lots of salad. The parma was quite bland though, no stand out flavours of any kind, it just tasted like chicken. Which, everyone knows, tastes like everything. Chips were quite good but also lacked on the extra flavour side of things. Bonus point for fast service and the $12 jugs of beer.
