“Varied if uninspired menu”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 12, 2012

My wife and I had some shopping to do near the mall, and we wanted to grab dinner at someplace with good food that wasn't too pricy. Red Parrot is located in a little strip mall down the street from Arundel Mills. It has a nice dinning room that is overseen by the bar in back. The menu has many east Asian options, mostly Japanese, Chinese, Thai and Korean. I had a glass of the house Malbec, which I found to be truly excellent. We ordered the Thai calamari as an appetizer, which was breaded and cooked very well and came with some sort of duck sauce. It was also completely devoid of tentacles, which we found interesting but did make them easy to eat- although we did have to request chopsticks. I enjoy sushi, but we decided to split a Thai Pattaya Seafood dish. This came with scallops, shrimp, mussels and many chopped vegetables in a chili sauce. Everything was cooked perfectly, but the asparagus pieces were cut on such a steep bias that they included the tough base of the stalks. It is also a pet peeve of mind when they make a special note in the menu warning diners that an item is spicy hot but turns out to be particularly as mild as this was. They had some interesting dessert items on the menu, but we decided to skip them this time. We will probably be back, after all.

“Great food but a little pricey for Asian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

The food is good here, got an Asian fusion kick to it. The dishes are a little pricier than your standard place. Got quite a selection, I chose a curry chicken dish with rice and it was yum!

“Fresh and tasty Asian style food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 28, 2012 via mobile

I go here a lot when I visit the Baltimore area. The food is very tasty with an extensive Asian menu that includes a wide selection of noodle, rice, curry and soup dishes. Servings are generous and the flavors of the dishes subtle and tasty using very fresh ingredients. You know that your meal has been taken straight off the stove to your table, piping hot and fresh.The atmosphere is relaxed asian influence with booths, tables and a bar you can sit at. Service is always friendly and attentive. Good place to go, if, like myself you travel alone a lot.you can people watch, find a quiet place or choose to eat at the bar and join in conversation with the staff or customers.
Vegetarian options are many, however the noodle and soup based dishes use chicken or beef broth. They need to have dishes created with vegetable broth for true vegetarians.
Highly recommended
