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.

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!
