I can thoroughly recommend this restaurant in Abingdon. Our visit was an excellent experience. The food was great, the staff in the restaurant were very friendly and helpful.

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 !

One of the best in Oxfordshire. Unfortunately, the last meal gave both me and my husband a little bit of a stomachache. Regardless, I would return because all of the other meals we've had were perfect.

Not visited restaurant for a meal but have had loads of takeaways. Food is fantastic - very fresh tasting. Portions are good size with plenty of meat in each dish. Staff are helpful on phone and very polite on collection. Restaurant does seem a bit quiet/lacking atmosphere but that's just my view from front door when picking up my order!

We hadn't been before and were looking for a local 'eat in' Chinese restaurant and thought we would give it a try. Staff all extremely friendly and the service was good and unhurried, despite being full and busy. As this is the only Chinese restaurant in Abingdon, they have a relatively captive market. However, I don 't think we will... More

Centrally located, great food and welcoming service is guaranteed. Food is tasty without being overly salty or seasoned. Will definitely return.
