Took far far too long for us to discover Paw Paw, a huge error on our part. This is a great restaurant, brilliant food, excellent service it never disappoints either for eat in or take away. Really like the mixture of both Chinese and Thai cuisines. This is also really handy for dinner pre The Mill shows. Brilliant value for... More

My boyfriend and I met up with his kids for dinner here a few weeks ago and I'd never been before, but they raved about it. When we walked in we were met with a really friendly staff member (who's name I can't remember!) and she seated us and took our drinks order, the decor in the place was really... More

Wasn't sure about booking this restaurant due to location, i.e. next to a bus station and it looked more like a takeaway. I was surprised by the fabulous evening we had there; very pleasant staff, lovely food and we were very comfortable at our table. Only downside was it was Mother's Day, so the service was a little slow due... More

Town centre means parking is challenging. However lovely food full of flavour,lemon chicken,king prawns could not be faulted and very reasonably priced. Loyalty card is an interesting discount offer.Very friendly service.If you like Asian cuisine then give it a try.

Not totally sure if this is the correct way to vent, but I'm going to do it anyway. Simply put, it's the wife's birthday and she wanted a Chinese delivered. Paw Paw have usually produced good food so the choice was relatively simple. We ordered the Bamboo meal for four as we had visitors, with the addition of some chips... More

I have probably eaten in all the Chinese restaurants in Banbury, and having not been to Paw Paw for quite a while I have to say it has improved and is now my favourite Chinese of choice. Excellent food fresh tasting and well cooked, ambience good nice and buzzy feel to the place with excellent staff.

Have used Paw Paw for a few years now and although a little more expensive than some of its competitors, in my opinion it's definitely worth the extra. Service was pleasant and attentive and when I have previously ordered take away it has always been of a high standard and importantly, ready when they say it's going to be.
