    Hmmm I did expect better from this establishement but the breast was dry as was the topping . The chips and salad saved the meal . Also $20.00 for a Parma and Pot deal is a bit rich

    Probably my all-time fave parma in Melbourne's best beer garden. Always hot, tender, well topped and seasoned extremely well. Side salad a winner too. It's my benchmark.

    Quite impressed. Meal was of a satisfying size, came out fairly quick. Chips were amazing, salad was in a separate bowl on the side. Only downer was the absence of ham on the topping. Otherwise highly recommended.

    After seeing other reviews, i thought it would be better than it was. Overall not a bad one, just not a great parma. I wish people panfried then instead of deep frying them.

    I love a good parma, and this looked as though it would be a winner. However they don't do ham in the topping. Sort it out chef! I don't know what sauce they use but it was a little dry and pastey, my mate agreed, he got one too. I did see other parmas coming out looking burnt! So minus one point for that! The salad was great and a good serving.

    About 2 months on from my last visit, i came back to The London Tavern Hotel. Service was quite slow, which is understandable because there were over 20 of us there and about half ordered the parma. It was nice, very tender chicken with great chips but the salad was pretty average. Great TV outside for watching the cricket. Not quite the incredible parma i had last time, but still well worth a visit to this great venue.

    Would have liked some ham. Came to the table very quickly. Was possibly prepared earlier and then microwaved. But still a very enjoyable meal.

    Touchtone reckons:

    Went based on the reviews on parma.com The parma nearly beat me back to the table which can be a good thing but not when it isn't hot. This might be OK for a $10 night but not at full tote odds. Would rather they cook to order. No ham in the topping which is not so good. It was OK but I won't be racing back.

    INCREDIBLE! The Chicken was amazing, very thick and cooked extremely well. Topping was brilliant, the sauce and the cheese were top quality and cooked to perfection. The chips were premium in quality and quantity and were well seasoned. The venue is brilliant aswell and the beer garden and the service is awesome and the parma dosent take long to come. Great value for $17 aswell. You gotta have this Parma!

    the sauce is the best thing about this parma, but the size of the parma and the chips also help. the chicken is preped well and the cheese is melted to perfection. I couldn't find much wrong with it. the ham didn't stand out. still the sauce is more than enough to keep you interested. only problem with a good sized parma is the chip ratio. one of the best parmas i have had in Melbourne.

    The London parma is like an under rated player that doesn't get the plaudits it should an therefore probably doesn't quite perform to its potential. There's nothing really wrong with this parma but with the tiniest bit of care and attention (ham, extra chips, better salad etc) then it could be challenging for the title.
