    First time to this venue. First thing that attracted us to it was the $12 special on a thursday for the "parma's of the world" and more importantly, the inclusion of salsa on the Mexican parma. And can i say, what an inclusion! I've had some good Mexican parma's before, but this one was probably the best. Quality of guacamole was great, and the sour cream and salsa were a delight. Size of the parma was very good, as was the quality. Chips were very tasty with a subtle hint of chicken salt to go with. The salad, while a good size, could have used one or two more wedges of tomato, but was good nonetheless. Bonus point for consistency across the 5 parmas ordered. Very impressed

    This parma was something else. The hype had been built to epic proportions after reading other reviews, and you only have to read the special parma menu on arrival to realise you're playing in the big leagues. The size is amazing, definitely the biggest I've encountered thus far. I chose the BBQ parma, and was impressed no end. Not only is the chicken enormous, the topping does not get left in its wake, covering every inch of delicious chicken. A large amount of chips hide under this beast, and while their positioning isn't ideal, there is no other way to fit such an epic meal on the plate. Bonus point for double parma challenge, and especially the spinning prize wheel. Well played all round

    A very solid contributor. While not as showy as some of its parma counterparts, the Wednesday night "parmas of the world" special is very good. Been a few times and have never left feeling I haven't been nourished, and that is half the battle. Bonus point for the bread roll and butter.
