    Popo the Monkey reckons:

    Date of consumption: 3 November 2010. The size of the parma was really a 3.5, slightly below average. The quality of the meat was pretty good, deserved a 3.5 but I bumped it up to a 4 to take into account the 3 I awarded for the size of the parma. The meat was pretty great, all natural, not too dry, fried just right, and still crunchy when it got to my table. The topping was pretty good - The cheese was pretty nice, and just the right amount of covering too. The sauce was a tad sweet, but you could tell that it was a natural homemade tomato sauce. I can see that lots of effort went into creating that sauce. The chip quality was very very good. It was fried "just right", and lightly salted. Unfortunately, the quantity could be improved - I could have eaten twice as much! The salad was pretty good too, definitely above average. It contained fresh carrots, cucumber, lettuce, orange, red onion, small bits of orange. The salad was fresh, and the vegetables shredded into small bits. Dressing was pretty good too. I loved the presentation - with a couple of splashes of gravy poured onto the parma. Overall, a pretty good parma, considering the price. There is obviously some scope for improvement, particularly in the size of the chicken served and the chip portion. Definitely worth a shot, you would be pleasantly surprised.
