    this was by far the thickest parma i have ever seen, the chicken was great quality and the crumbing was excellent, right on the edges might have been a little overcooked but the taste was still sensational. the topping was great but didnt quite cover the whole parma. the chips were excellent and came with their own dipping sauce, my only complaint is that there wasnt a huge serving to match the rest of the meal. the dressing on the salad was absolutely fantastic.. all in all this was a superb parma, it could earn a bonus point for any of the things i have mentioned so far, but i will instead award it for the excellent choice of locally brewed beers / cider on tap.

    best parma i've had in newie in quite some time. surprisingly thick parma covered in bacon and a delicious tomato sauce and melted cheese. there was an absurd amount of chippies which were spot on, it was a battle to finish it off. bonus point for the big screens showing the ashes and nba side by side, $10 parmas on a thursday

    Gavin reckons:

    my mate gaz and i went to check out this relatively new establishment down in honeysuckle and were majorly impressed. their beers were cold and delicious, especially for a monday morning, and the parmas were excellent. the size was great and the schnitty itself was superbly cooked. the topping was spot on, with a heap of bacon that still didn't overpower the cheese / tomato. the chips were nicely seasoned but there wasn't a huge serving which was a shame, although they were served in a weird tin which may or may not make up for that. i gave a bonus point for their "you don't make friends with salad" approach to the parma, and also for the kebabs on their menu which are served on this fancy hanging skewer thing which i liked.
