We ordered a take away meal today . The meal when we got home was missing the crispy duck and the sweet and sour pork. Other portions were lightweight in quantity. We rang up and we're told to come back for the crispy duck but the other missing portion might take an hour. Although initially apologetic, when my wife called... More

Called in on spec and ordered a simple meal (char sui) and a beef dish both with egg fry. The pork had been cooked (at least once) beforehand and was served on a warming tray. This succeeded in only warming up the tinned pineapple which was hiding underneath. The beef was in some form of batter/breadcrumb coating and was devoid... More

I went into the Parasol as I had heard 'good things' about the place. The decor is tired and the food is avergae and over priced. If I was asked to recommend it, I wouldn't and will not listen to the people who said it was 'good' again.

Enjoyed great food, excellent friendly service and the price was ok too! Would recommend this place to couples or groups going out for a meal. Only down side is they don't serve draft beer, but the bottles are fine!

Whilst visiting Abingdon with a group of work colleagues eight of us called in Parasol on a Thursday night. Despite the fact the restaurant was busy the waitress was able to find a table big enough to accommodate all of us and even found time to give us a lesson in the correct use of chopsticks which was a first...

We visited the parasol Abingdon on a busy Saturday night, we used to use the one in bicester all the time until they sold it. The quality of the food was just as good and the service excellent and friendly. The owner Edward really takes care of you and wants you to enjoy your time in his restaurant. I can't... More

We visited this place during a recent stay in Abingdon and using Tripadvisor. I can honestly say it was the worst dining experience we have ever had, the starters took about 90 seconds to arrive so not cooked fresh, i also ordered beef in black bean sauce with chilli and got beef in bisto. DISGUSTING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! There are lots of eateries... More

Have eaten in Parasol restaurant and had take away. The staff are nice and the food is great. If you get a takeaway and pick it up rather than have it delivered they give you 10% off !
