Had dinner at Mrs Parma's before catching a show in Melbourne. The whole table ordered different chicken and veal parmas and everyone was delighted with their selections. Washed down with a range of different craft beers, it's everything you would want before a night out.

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

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
over a century ago. In restaurant after restaurant on
Little Bourke Street, you'll find delicious dishes
such as sizzling honeyed prawns, and value for your
money. Stately matrons oversee family kitchens serving
