one of us ordered the roast vege sald - what came out was old roast potatoes on a bed of plain ripped up green letteuce. Ver disappointing. The other three meals were totally acceptable for $12.00

Here is a restaurant with chefs who know how to cook pork belly. It was tasty, succulent and had a delicious sauce over it. The mash was perfectly seasoned, and smooth. The vegetables were minimal but very nice, and the dish was garnished with microgreens. 10/10. The tiramisu was lacking in flavour and comprised mostly of whipped cream. I expected coffee-soaked sponges but instead there was a vaguely vanilla mascarpone hidden amongst half a cup of whipped cream ( the sponge fingers were down the sides of the glass, and the cream had been pumped into the space in the middle). Bleehhrr. The staff were amazing however, and all in all it was a fantastic meal. The portion sizes were great.

I have to say, having lived in London for nearly three years, I thought returning to the Tron would be a good experience. We went here for a birthday meal, and I couldn't believe that a pint of Mac's Gold was $9! That's more expensive than pretty much any pint in Central London! The food was so-so, mainly just big pizzas. I had fond memories of Furance, but a lot has changed since I was away!

We were in Hamilton on a Wed night and walked up Victoria St looking for somewhere lively around 7pm. Furnace had quiet a few people (most other bars didn't) sitting in the open area out the front so we drank very cold beer and watched a football game which was great. Service was excellent. Place was very clean and tidy and nicely decorated.
