    Parmaman reckons:

    While slightly pricey ($22) I really enjoyed this parma. Size wise it was perfect in every regard; in terms of the actual chicken fillet, but also the salad and chips quantity was excellent. While it was a beautiful chicken fillet, crumbed really well; the real highlight was the ham and cheese coverage, slightly baked on and perfectly covering the fillet which is a pet hate of mine. The highlight was the sauce, it was napolitan however it had a tomato paste edge to it which made it pizzarish which added an extra element to the palate. The cheese was a nice mix of motza and cheddar which provided an excellent tang. If the oil was newer the chips would have improved dramatically. However an excellent meal, great portion, fantastic sauce all culminating together to deliver a truly excellent meal. I had it with a pint of Hargreaves Hill ESB which was a really 'meatey' and filling beer which complimented the meal perfectly.

    Parmaman reckons:

    Fantastic parma. If it were around $15 I would say it was one of the best in town. Although a little pricey its very much a get what you pay for situation. Quality chicken, no expense spared on the sauce, nice amount of chips and a fantastic salad that many parmas often lack. Good service and quality make those extra $5 or so go to an area that many parmas and venues often lack.
