This evening we ordered a take away to be delivered we have used Paw paw in the past & know that you do have to wait usually 1- 1&1/2 for delivery on a Saturday night which wasn't a problem for us. (The delivery came 1 hour & 20 minutes after ordering.) The only problem we had was that one of... More

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

This is the best of a bad bunch in that foodies desert known as Banbury. Last nights takeaway was just a tad disappointing , crispy chilli beef was as good as ever as was plain chow mien but sweet and sour chicken an prawn pad Thai both a bit of a rip off. Three prawns in pad Thai and four... More

The food is all of a very high quality, and tastes fresh rather than greasy as this type of cuisine sometimes can. We have eaten in the restaurant multiple times and had several take-aways, and it has always been good. The staff are very friendly and the service is very quick. We always collect a take-away rather than have it... More

Tried lots of delivered Chinese takeaways recently, the majority if which have left the wife, daughter, and I a little disappointed. Tried Paw Paw again after an absence of a few years and was pleasantly surprised. Food was very tasty and arrived in under 40 minutes, no mean feat on a Saturday evening. Only reason for not awarding 5 stars... More

Have tried most of the takeaways in Banbury over the years and they mainly taste of old cooking oil or there's no taste at all. Paw Paw cook the food well and it is really nice.
