Purple Mango is everything you expect from a decent indian.

Modern decor, clean stylish and the service is second to none. They are friendly extremely professional and the food is amazing!

I always have tikka @ korma, its so tasty, flavoursome and moreish!! Popadoms are crisp and complemented with all the accompliments

NEGATIVES;

Desert menu is all frozen and in my opinion like most foreign resturants, are of low quality but priced high. Plus when I attended with a large party, most of the deserts had sold out!

In my opinion they should make some fresh indian inspired puds!

... by a country mile. Since moving away from Banbury, I can't find an Indian Restuarant that is up to the standard of the Purple Mango.

Clean and modern, the food is great and you won't come away hungry. Good value for money.

I went on a Wednesday with my boyfriend and both of us had a fantastic meal. The staff are really friendly and made sure we had everything we needed. The food is second to none and faultless. Really good atmosphere for either a special occasion or just for a place to have a quick dinner at. Also, thursday is their cheap night so you get loads more food for a set price!

mixed review, the food was good, service mixed, some of the staff were excellent, one in particular came over as rude and arrogant, did not seem to be bothered that his attitude was upsetting. His behaviour was mentioned but the manager did not seem to be too bothered, on member of staff though was excellent and in my eyes, should be the manager.

Another issue were the disabled toilets, they were cluttered with restaurants things, no bin provided and worst of all, no toilet paper, which did cause a problem. I had to struggle over to the normal toilets to get the paper and go back, good job i checked otherwise i really would have been in a pickle. When this was mentioned to the manager, his reply was that they were not expecting any disabled people in and did not know that there were any disabled people in the restaurant. I pointed out that one did not have to look disabled to be disabled and i also wondered why he had not noticed the lady in the wheelchair, unfortunately she had already left before i brought up the toilet problem, perhaps he too was not bothered about the customers.

The only reason it got an average was the one member of staff and the food was nice but i will not be going there again

Great out of town restaurant. Really good service and good value. Thursday night is banquet night and Sunday is buffet. A fantastic choice of food in a lovely atmosphere.
