    I had been to this venue before, and my memories were that the parma was quite good - well definatly not tonight!
    it was fairly busy, but those excuses can't be made for my shitty parma... a cheese slice had been melted on top and pizza base or tomato paste had been used as the topping sauce...
    It was such a budget slapped together parma!
    the actual quality of chicken was good though, such a shame the hobo chef's couldn't put it together as a decent parma!
    for anyone who has read any of my reviews, and notice I race alot about the $12 parmas at the elsternwick - well when I'm paying $7 less at a venue like that for a much better put together parma how can I not?
    salad was shit - chips were ok, however some may not have agreed. chips were mass cooked and placed in a large bowl as fat chef stuffed his hand in to get a handfull out for meals.. (kitchen was wide open for everyone to see as they ordered probably not the best of ideas guys the hygiene sucked!)

    I was still hungry after this parma, but otherwise everything was fine, the chicken was nice which is the main thing. They have misspelled parmagiana on the menu, but I haven't taken off any bonus points for that.

    I may go against the grain, but I don't like ham on top as standard. Needed a bit more topping and better spread. Salad was lacking in tomato. Overall, pretty decent though!

    Good chicken quality and portion sizes, could have had more sauce and even distribution of sauce and better quality ham. Very tasty overall, would order again.
