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

hello delboy... the best way to deal with any queries is to pick up the phone, speak to the manager at your pawpaw. i have looked at your past review on 20/09/16 giving is rating of 4/5 stars. nothing has changed except the bamboo meal was always meant for 2 persons, clearly not enough to share between your wife, daughter...

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.

A cold Autumnal evening following an afternoon of excitement after watching England beat SA (Rugby Union), resulted in the wife and I deciding on another Paw Paw delivery. Food was fantastic and thoroughly enjoyed by all the family, including our 8 year old daughter. Only slight criticism was the temperature but as highlighted in my last review, we live in... More
