Been meaning to go to this Indian for ages as it was recommended by good pals but this Tuesday, as I was visiting in Banbury, we took the opportunity to try their Tuesday Banquet deal. Exceptionally good value at £10.50 any starter, any main, a side dish rice or naan and £2 extra if you want a fish/seafood dish. The... More

We visited as a group of 4; 2 of our group had been before and highly recommended Purple Mango. The staff were really attentive, despite reviews that they were slow. The food was delicious (I had a chicken dhansak and Peshawari naan) and it was meat-abundant! The only thing I missed was the yoghurt mint sauce to compliment the usual... More

Tuesday Night is a great day for an Indian with the purple mango. The deal they have is brilliant. 4 courses for around a tenner when I went. I have left left an Indian so completely stuffed, the only thing you'll want to do afterwards is lay on the sofa and vegetate

We had a lovely take away meal from here the other night, and the lamb balti was superb. we rang up for a collection and the staff were just lovely and friendly, one of the best Indian restaurants around.

I returned to Purple Mango after more than a year and was really pleased that I did. The food is excellent and just a little different. The Green Delight with either lamb or chicken is definitely one to try. It's on the list of regular places to eat out now.

When my wife and I moved from London to Banbury, we sobbed about the distance between us and our regular Indian in Belvedere. We tried most of the Indians in town (Voujon, Sheesh Mahal, Jaipur) and they all have their own merits, but all of them lacked a certain something. Our neighbours mentioned the Purple Mango to us. It is... More

Lovely little place with a good range on the menu, the service was great and they were able to give advice when asked. The decor is nice as well and we would go here again.
