Good food served by friendly staff. We went on a Monday evening and the restaurant was quiet but the Olympics was on! The food was very tasty and well presented.

Like NJS707 we popped in here for food prior to the Fairport Convention gig at the Mill last week. Lovely, friendly service, super food (and not too salty) and very good value. Everything arrived piping hot, and the food tasted fresh with lovely crisp vegetables. Can't fault it - this is the second year that we've made this our pre-gig... More

After travelling to Banbury we found this great Chinese by luck whilst awaiting the Fairport Convention gig at The Mill. Food was both excellent and served with a smile by the delightful staff. Underwhelmed by Banbury itself, I would return just for this restaurant!!!

Food was delivered within an hour of ordering. Food tasted amazing would highly recommend ordering from here. Only downside I could find was there was not a huge takeaway menu. The menu for eating in was a lot bigger, I look forward to ordering in at Paw Paw

The staff were friendly and attentive, the decor was appealing and very clean. But best of all was the food! All the dishes we... More

Pregnant wife was craving sweet and sour chicken, sadly Banbury has a real lack of good clean Chinese restaurants so Paw Paw was the obvious choice. We'd had takeaways from here before and they've always been good. We sat in for an early dinner and were pretty pleased we did. The restaurant is spotless! Nicely decorated and an appealing place...
