    Tybalt reckons:

    Quite expensive. Topping good but actual chicken was quite terrible. Avoid!!! I'm sure there is better Place around corner, I suggest you look for it. It is a cafe so while expectations should be low, you should still steer clear. The gnocchi was ok though.

    Berger reckons:

    Parma and chips... It's what I normally order when I ask for a meal. For the $25.50 price... I was expecting to have chips included.. Nope. Another $6 for them. Was a quiet night, but the delay for the meal to arrive was poor. Once it arrived I was in disbeleif... Smallest Parma I have seen in my life, on top of a poorly presented salad. And a bowl of chips along side. Felt like a kids meal with an entree. The chicken was thin, tasteless, as tasteless at the coke on tap, which tasted like it come from the rusty pipelines of the building, with added water. The only enjoyable part of the night was the Blue Tounge beer of the month. I also can't say much for service either. Give me a $12 Parma & pot from a country pub any day. Did I mention the lack of ham on the Parma.

    Popo the Monkey reckons:

    Date of consumption: 10 September 2010 Apologies for the picture. The lighting in the restaurant wasn’t very bright. This parma was expensive, and a little bit of a disappointment. I’m going to give this restaurant a -1 straight out for not serving chips with the parma meal. What makes the lack of chips more galling is that my dining companions ordered a side order of chips – it was pretty well cooked. Not burnt at all. Why the chef doesn’t include chips with the parma is beyond me. Parma and chips/wedges go hand in hand, like bacon and eggs, peanut butter and jam, potato and gravy, and pizza and beer. Pure madness – probably in the name of “being fancy”. The salad was good, despite a slightly under average serving. The dressing was quite nice, but I couldn’t pick out exactly what it was. The salad was pretty fresh – and consisted of tomato, cucumber, spinach, and some onion. Onto the parma itself. The meat was a bit thin, dry, and chewy. Okay in quality… The crumbing was alright, but nothing special. The chef committed another parma sin – there was no ham provided! The sauce was okay, the cheese good, but a little sparse. Nice garnish on top though. Recommendation: Avoid this train wreck of a parma. I mean, there’s always the temptation to “see how bad it can really get”, but I guarantee you’ll leave this joint swearing you’d only eat parmas in pubs in the future. SHAME!
