My friends and I had a very rewarding meal at Mrs Parmas before attending The Princess Theatre to see 'The Book of Mormon'. Two of us had the 'original' chicken Parma. It was excellent. Surprisingly they did not have any veal. Only chicken and eggplant....More

Parmas are fantastic, albeit on the pricey side with a choice of schnitzel, chicken and eggplant, and a variety of interesting toppings. Beer selection is one of the best you will find in a gastropub with a focus on Victorian craft and weekly rotating taps....More

Locals know that Chinatown is the tried and true place
to eat before hitting the nightclub scene. The place
simply buzzes, and the well-preserved buildings exude
a sense of Imperial China stemming from immigration

such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
