The food is always good here and the banquet deal ensures you get fresh food cooked hot and you can eat at your pace. Gets busy so try and book.

We visited on a Saturday night and the place was quite busy. We ordered a banquet and had to take a lot of it home as we were so full. Each dish was fresh and delicious. The staff were very friendly and efficient. The restaurant is nice but the tables are quite tightly packed so it's a bit squishy.

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
