    Excellent parma! Great taste, great size, great chips! what more can you want. Parma was served on top of the chips unfortunately. Nice little venue - if you can find the place! Would definately return.

    After my dissappointment that the dining room was booked out (my own fault for not booking) we managed to nab a table in the bar area (slightly different menu - more pub style food than the dining room) much to mmy delight there before my eyes standing out from all others on the board was the "Metroplitan fat arse chook parma with fat fries." Who could resist that? a pint of little creatures later the single and i mean single best parma i have ever eaten arrived in front of me! It's one of my locals and i honestly can't believe i've never had the parma there! First i'll admit that the parma did arrive on top of the chips however the salad arrived in a little bowl so once i shunted that off to the side there was plenty of room to reshuffle the plate. Now at first glance the parma looked great, fat piece of chicken, lots of topping, fat chips - unfortunately no ham but i got over it..... On first taste the chicken was amazing! Soft fresh juicy chicken, the topping was also very well done! Chips tasted great and the salad was also quite reasonable. Honestly - i think i have found the holy grail (well it's going to be my holy grail for now) however i will continue the hunt to find better although it will be a tall ask....

    We decided to spread the orders around the table to get a range of flavours on the parmas. One Hawiian, one Aussie and one Italian. The chicken on all were absolutely spot on. The topping was great! although i don't think i will beordering the hawiian - not sure if chicken, cheese and pinapple mix that well. The aussie was apparently "the best i've ever tasted" according to my brother. My other brother also was quoted as saying "the best i've ever had" also. Mine was great however i somehow got shorted a little on the topping. Could use a little more next time. Chips and salad were great and complimented the meal well.
