This evening we dined at this restaurant with friends, we had booked a table yesterday but arrived about 15 minutes early. The staff welcomed us as if nothing was to much trouble. We were shown to our table and whilst looking at the menu we were served with complimentary snacks.. We chose a set menu but asked could we change... More

We have eaten at Parasol a few times and every visit has been wonderful. I can personally recommend the Thai green curry!! The staff are friendly and the decor of the restaurant is also lovely!

Service was prompt but the waitresses looked bored and never smiled - they also changed the tablecloth while we were still seated and didn't wait for us to leave first. The buffet food was OK but some chicken dishes were too salty, the rice was too sticky and I think they used too much MSG. The coffee at the end... More

The food wasn't great. Bland and tasteless and not good value at all. I have heard good reviews about this restaurant, but I have to say I was not impressed.

Large menu of all-you-can-eat choices that are prepared immediately (and not just previously prepared as in other "buffets"). A mixture of Chinese and Thai dishes.

We have been eating here for 8 years now and we have always enjoyed a delicious meal. The menu of both Chinese and Thai food gives enough variety to find something interesting to eat. Although, we particularly enjoy the various choices of meat with lettuce wraps as the mix of hot meat within cold lettuce is a great sensation. Service... More

If your thinking of going after 10pm ?DONT!!!!!!! The staff just want you out so the can close. They were extremely rude and unwelcoming. The food was nice but spoiled by the atmosphere. I'd like to say that the Indian waitress isn't just rude and unfriendly after 10 , I've been at 6 and she's the same . Get a... More

"Eat as much as you like banquet" is great value, you can do exactly that, eat as much as you like! We have always found the owner to be extremely friendly, without being intrusive. We have found all the staff to be friendly and helpful. I would have no reservations in recommending the Parasol to anyone looking for good value,... More
