Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

We had a takeaway - perhaps one of the best we have ever had! We are real foodies and love fresh, well balanced and sophisticated food. We also cook our own Chinese. This was stunning.. and for the price exceptional. Hugely recommended and having just...moved into the area from Oxford very surprised to experience delivered food so good. If you want your traditional msg Chinese, don’t choose this, but if you want something natural, tasty and home cooked, go for it!More

Shocking take away delivered from this place on 15 Sept. Food ordered at 6.30pm, arrived at 7.20pm and one of the dishes was incorrect. Called to report and was assured they would re-deliver the correct one immediately, it arrived 45 minutes later. My wife had...to eat hers while it was hit and I had to microwave mine later and of course it's not the same and not what I expected. Complained to the business and was offered a £5 voucher as compensation. Their argument was that they did not make a mistake on purpose, they had to pay the delivery driver twice and I had the 'benefit' of an additional dish that they delivered incorrectly and didn't ask for it back. I chucked it in the bin anyway. Added to all of this the food was dreadful, chewy ribs, chewy overcooked sweet & sour chicken and lemon chicken just awful when microwaved. Mistakes happen but the attitude suggesting that their issues like paying for 2 deliveries and giving me a dish I didn't want being played back as a benefit to me are not good enough. Need to be so much better with their attitude and lost me as a customer who has ordered for the last 3 weeksMore

Pawpaw is our regular takeaway treat and never disappoints. Their online ordering is quick and simple and remembers your last order, which is handy if you're a creature of habit. Staff are always friendly. I collect so can't comment on delivery service but the food...is always ready on time, professionally presented, generous portions, piping hot, super tasty and keeps us coming back for more. Crispy duck is a particular family favourite but order an extra portion of pancakes so none of the duck goes to waste.More

In London where I used to live we had a vast range of high quality eateries to choose from. Truth is, and perhaps misguidedly so, I didn't expect to find one near our new home near Banbury. But my oh my, the food we ordered...as a takeway from Paw Paw exceeded all expectations. Nothing gloopy here – just simple, home-style cooking using really fresh ingredients. My crispy beef with chilli was delicious and the al dente broccoli was scrumptious. Paw Paw is my new go-to Chinese takeaway. Next time I shall dip into some of their Thai dishes. Highly recommended for those looking for good quality East Asian food.More
