    I always like to look at other people's plates when I walk into a pub to see what's on offer. When I walked into The Mint, all the plates were empty. They were spotless. And now I know why. My trusted sidekick went as far to describe it as his "favourite parma ever". And I tend to agree with him. For $11.99 (the Tuesday special) it's far and away the best value in Melbourne. One bonus point is not enough, Everything from the rectangular plate, to the service, speed, price, and even the seeded mustard was spot on, The only downside was the absence of tomato in the salad. But apart from that, the bird was pretty much flawless. Hats off to the good folk at The Mint for a job well done. I'll be back.

    A thick quality parma of the perfect size, big without feeling stuffed once finished, crispy on the outside and tender in the middle with great topping. Bonus point for the seasoned chips and seeded mustard dressing on the salad. Fantastic summer venue due to the outdoor area but even on a Wednesday it was full.

    Finally got round to The Mint to try this very overrated parma. It was burnt and overcooked which ruined the taste and made it tough and dry. It's a shame because it was good quality meat. The flavours weren't there. The chips were really nicely seasoned and salad was nice too. Overall I was disappointed and wouldn't try again. Priced reasonably though.

    After some dissapointing Parmas lately I have returned to what I consider to be the best Parma in Melbourne (obviously this does not include the number one parma which is out of town). It was pretty much faultless - no correction, it was faultless. This includes the service. Congratulations to the Mint for consistency and the best Parma I've had in a very long time.

    Had a friend from the UK staying with us and she loves parmas, so I got on the site and had a look at the best for 2010. I was disappointed that two are in NSW and the top two are out of town, so I went with one that rated top ten in 2009 & 2010 and also had a Special on Tuesday nights. Ok, to the parma, I wasn't disappointed (none of the 5 of us that ordered them were), the size and quality of the meat was great, the salad was really nice as well. The chips were thin, I prefer thick cut but they were actually really good (could have been all the salt on them, I LOVE salt) they were under the parma, which I hate, but the chips were still in good nick. Overall it was great, and so was the service, the guy behind the bar looked after us with drinks and meals, and well worth the extra point I gave for it. WORTH checking out.

    Bird Bandit reckons:

    I’m outraged this parma is ranked 4th on the grid for the peoples state & food capital of Australia. Not only does it make me question the pallets of those that have ranked it so highly but also the level of quality on this list when such a mediocre meal runs just shy of a podium finish. Me & two mates who know the way around a bit of bird, ripped into the establishment filled with corporate clowns where we were informed the kitchen was closing at 8pm, making me question demand. Aside from waiting far too long for our meals (pots were delicious), there was actually nothing that really stood out & I was unimpressed that they served up fries instead of chips. As far as I’m concerned, any parma in the top ten should be worth going out of your way for & even though it was only ten mins away; this is merely a place where you’d tap chicken if it’s within walking distance. What people tend to forget is that ratio & quality ingredients need to be spot on to make a good parma, great & this shack was lacking both.

    3 of us went for a parma on a Wednesday, we paid the full price of $18.90 instead of the Tuesday's $12 special. All 3 parmas were perfect. The chicken was cooked to perfection, juicy with great flavour. The crumb was excellent, the napoli had a great "home made" texture and the cheese was as expected. The chicken came partially on the top of the fries, but its cooking was soo perfect that it did not create any sogginess. It was too large to have everything fitting the plate any way. We had a large quantity of perfectly cooked French fries and the salad was very large and good. The dressing may have had a bit too much vinegar, but it balanced well with the ret of the plate. Bonus point for the size and quality of the sides.

    A solid performace. Chicken was thick and juicy, good spread of toppings. Chips were thick, well-cooked and well-salted and the salad was fresh and simple, which is important as not to take to much attention away from the parma. Needed dressing though. Size was sufficient, but because it was such good quality, we were left wishing we had just a bit more.

    I've thought long and hard about my review on The Mint's dish. It was good, but it was not parma greatness :( I have been here before and my main complaint is lack of consistency. The parma in itself is large however the taste of the chicken was "weird" and I cant put my finger on it? The crumb is delish, in fact the best crumb I've had in a while but the napoli/tomato paste was too acidic by a long way. Chips were great and salad was great. I've marked accordingly but am dissapointed with the chicken itself, the napoli and the inconsistency. WIll be back though to see how it's travelling.

    Somedays we wake up thinking we're beautiful. Somedays, we wake up thinking we're amazing. And somedays we wake up feeling on top of the world. Today was a combination of the 3. We arrived with high expexctations after reading The Mint's high reviews of their classic parma. We sat and when the waiter offered the menu we politely refused knowing the dish we had come to be served. I am unsure of the previous comments listed in The Mint's reviews as the experience we had was something else. While there was a little wait, this only set my girlfriend and I alive with anticipation as we dreamed of what might arrive. Maybe the other reviewers were from other second class rival pubs because this parma WAS AMAZING. The size of the chicken was incredible! The salad was so fresh and the dressing was so crisp. While they provided french fries for the chips, they did not provide salt and pepper obviously showing the confidence they had in their own dish. The topping was classic tomato paste, ham and cheese combined in the most real beautifully crafted work of art I have ever seen. To all those non believers of The Mint's dominating parma success, take a long walk off a short peir. As every girl has that special fling they will always remember, in parma terms, this will be mine.

    Ok, I was recommended to check out The Mint by parma.com.au so i got to the pub early (just to make sure that i'd be able to get my meal withought any complications). Problem one... I NEVER GOT MY PARMA...TWICE! They had sold out of parmas at 6pm (seems a bit sus to me) and when i came back the next week, it was the same story. Not wanting to spark unrest or anything but I think a few employers have rated The Mint unfairly and it has been given it a stupidly high review on this site. My friend, who was lucky enough to get 'the last parma', let me share his small meal. My rating? a D- ... and that's if you get your meal... There really wasnt anything special about this Parma. A waste of money, time and a 2hr concession card.

    I went to The Mint for a parma after seeing that it was the "best parma in melbourne 2009". I am not joking when I say that this is the most unpleasant parma that i've ever experienced. The chicken tasted strange and gamey, as though it had been frozen for some time. It was also overcooked, the crumbs were coming off. The cheese was tasteless and burnt. Possibly grated kraft singles. Chips were more burnt than the cheese,and very thin and also homebrand from the frozen section. The biggest disappointment was the salad: a sad little heap of wilted lettuce leaves without dressing. After going through this horrifying nightmare I was left unsatisfied, and nauseous. The meal was too small. This was not a parma, it's a scar on the face of all parmas everywhere and frankly, it's UNAUSTRALIAN.

    I was really excited to try The Mint since they're rated 'Melbourne's best parma' but I was SO disappointed! The parma was very small, the chicken was overcooked/dry and too thick. The salad consisted of a few lettuce leaves, the cheese was basically tasteless and our meal took nearly an hour to be served! I definitely will not be returning.

    Last time i came here for a parma it was sensational, this time around it was ordinary. Crumb was falling off the breast, it was dry and over cooked. The cheese was very rubbery? I dunno why it just was. Chips were great but Parma was ordinary, quite dissapointed.

    Haven't eaten at The Mint in a while and my return from exile was a rewarding experience. 2 Parmas delivered quickly post order (bonus point as appreciate a quick lunch) at the perfect temperature for the cold winter's day.Tender and juicy chicken, but not too thick that it felt like half a chicken had been plonked on my plate, beautiful tomato topping with strong tasting cheese (often underrated), plenty of quality fries, and enough salad to make me feel like i got my meat and three veg worth. Kudos to the cook.

    As a parma enthusiast, the reviews i'd read made this place a must on my to do list but was not bedazzled by this one. It wasn't bad but the satisfaction level was low and a trip to maccas was required to satiate the small gap left. The high expectations were sadly not met, although for a bonus point the fries were a nice change.

    Date of consumption: 12-Apr-2010 A pretty good parma, now I know why it's rated so highly for CBD parmas. The size of the breast fillet was ho-hum, quite average. Quality of the breast meat was above average too, nice and crunchy all the way through. The topping is where this parma shines! Lovely lovely cheese! Natural tomatoes were used too. Subtract 1 from this rating if you don't like french fries, but they were cooked to perfection. Seasoned with some special sort of red seasoning - it was awesome. I had the free option of alioli with the chips, which I accepted. Good move, it just brought out the chips even better! Serving of chips was decent too. I will also give kudos for the salad served up! It was fancy, and ensured that I got a balanced meal. The salad was fresh, crunchy, dressing was great too. Salad had cos lettuce, rocket, tomato, capsicum, and cucumber, just nice. Am happy to pay $18.90 anytime for this parma, and that's not a compliment given lightly :)

    Disappointed by this one, only because I had such high hopes. Chicken was nice and juicy but it had been beaten up a bit to much, the topping just that bit too oily and the size, while nice and fat, was a bit short of greatness. Chips weren't as good as I remembered either, and being fries I'm still being generous with a 'good' rating. Salad was large and great tasting though.

    We arrived at 8pm for our meal to find that that's when the kitchen closes! So make sure you get there early. This rating is the average score given between the 6 of us that ate. This is our first week of rating and I fear we may have judged a tad harshly. Personally, I thought the Parma was delicious, the relatively large juicy chicken breast and the flavorsome topping were top notch. The chips (more like 'fries' really) were nice with had a great seasoning, although not a very large serving. Salad's not really my scene, but the others thought that there could have been a bit more of it. All in all, it was a quality feed. Left everyone satisfied. The bonus point's for the great price. Good job.

    Best lunch I've had in a long time. Parma is big, juicy but still managed to have a crisp coating. Only lost out because the coating also fell off a little too easily. topping was fantastic, but could be improved in terms of quantity and a little ham. Chips were fries, but fantastic ones, seasoning was awesome. Could have been some more of them though. Salad was perfect. Bonus point for price and venue. This parma is a must have.

    The chicken itself was very tender and juicy, but the topping was quite bland and there was not enough of it. The chips were good, for the few that were there, and the salad was neither good or bad. The crumbing was clearly freshly applied as it fell off in some places, so that was nice to know. Overall satisfying for the price with a free pot, but won't become my new favourite haunt.

    Lovely, thick, real chicken breast. A++++, would eat again. Seriously, the parma was an inch thick, nicely done topping and a good, if simple salad. The chips broke law 5 by the virtue of being fries, but they were tasty all the same. This would have received a bonus point for using chips instead of fries

    Bonus point because this was one of the most juiciest parma's I have ever eaten. For $12.50 (with a pot) on a Monday and Tuesday, I'll be going back!
