We'd never been to this restaurant before but it looked busy as we walked past (often a good sign) and we liked the set menus listed in the window. Unfortunately said set menus were only available as part of the take-away menu but there was plenty on the main menu that also took our fancy. When it arrived, the food... More

I've had takeaways from here before which were good but the takeaway we've had tonight was awful. I ordered a half crispy duck which was extremely dry and only had half a small pot of plum sauce and a tiny amount of spring onion and cucumber. The house special chow mien was not even half full in the container and... More

First visit for me and may be my last. I thought the food was good and the seating was good too. The service left much to be desired. There was a list of issues that made me wonder if they have had any training. From walking away when taking our order, 20 minutes waiting for drinks after reminding them. 30... More

As an Asian myself, we use to love Parasol. So when our relatives came over from abroad we thought we'd take them there. Booked a table for 11. That's where the problem began. They didn't have a baby seat \ high chair for the little one. The Indian \ Pakistani waitresses didn't understand English, so we had a mix up... More

Ordered a delivery this evening.. I have never had such a bad experience. The food was actually lovely but the delivery came, the duck was not shredded (asked for specifically) and the box lid was broken the crispy shredded beef. So I called back and they offered to deliver another of each free of charge. Then it arrived the same... More

Visited again after a few months and the food is still spot on. Great duck dishes that draw me back time and time again. Room is usually full of larger parties but there is plenty of space for a table of 2 to feel cozy.

We visited Parasol yesterday after wandering around Abingdon trying to find somewhere nice to eat and settled on Parasol. We were not disappointed, the menu choice was excellent, however we decided to have the banquet for two. The starters were fabulous, crispy duck plentiful and tasty and the main courses (three dishes plus special fried rice) were freshly cooked, we... More

Tasteless food and very poor services, been before but not again for some time, the management should have a good look at their staff and possibly provide some training, basically no idea. It's a shame as word gets around and can't fo there trade any good. Old not recommend.
