“Excellent Place to Lunch”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 31, 2014

Can we count on chains? At the Red Parrot Asian Bistro "yes". Two for two anyways. I had general tso chicken at two locations. This chicken had wonderful white chunks of chicken in a sweet crisp batter. Others at the table had beef (tender and tasty) with green beans (crisp and tasty). I would also recommend the thai basil sauce.

Lots of friendly smiles from the server.

I am eager to try more dishes there.

“Below average sushi”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 29, 2014

Went there for first time. Ordered the sashimi deluxe. It was very lacking. The white tuna was thinly sliced, way to thin for sashimi. Also I do not respect any sushi place that serves fake crab as sashimi. Fake food is not sashimi. The tuna and salmon were okay. The last item was red snapper. To add insult to it all there were only 14 pieces when promised 16, and I did include the fake crab.

“Pretty Good Options for Lunch and Dinner, Disappointing Sunday Brunch”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

Friends and I visited this location recently for "Sunday brunch." We had a Groupon to use, which is what prompted us to visit this particular location (we are all closer to the Hanover, MD location). Overall, we had a good meal. The sushi options are very good as are the other lunch and dinner entrees. The Sunday brunch buffet option for $19.95 was a bit disappointing, however. All but one person in our party decided to order off the main menu instead. Hopefully Red Parrot will consider a dim sum style brunch option for the future which would probably be a better fit than its current offerings.

“Very Diverse Menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2014 via mobile

Live near by and got carry out one night. Got Panang curry with chicken and happy family. Portions were pretty small. Mango sticky rice for dessert. This was dried out and hard as a rock. I would go back for lunch and try some other dishes

“A Pan-Asian success story!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This place has it all - Korean, Chinese, Japanese, Vietnamese, Thai, and sushi, and all I have tried are delicious. I am a huge fan of the various Asian cuisines, and usually visit restaurants that specialize in one or two, but this one seems to excel in all of them. The drunken noodles are amazing, as is the Bibimbap, and the sushi and tuna tartare make great appetizers. You cannot go wrong, no matter your preference, with the Red Parrot Asian Bistro, and it also runs deals in Groupon and Living Social, so you can enjoy a gustatory delight for half price!
