Couple Bobo and Liam started Bobo’s Cambodian Kitchen during lockdown but have recently decided to make the move to permanent premises.

Having learned how to cook many of the dishes from her grandmother back in Cambodia, Bobo now hopes to introduce new flavours and authentic traditional meals to Banbury.

Liam said: “Our personal favourite would be one of our curries with a side of pork wontons. Our pork wontons are made fresh every morning and make a great snack on their own if you don’t want to eat a full meal.”

The couple previously ran pop-up takeaways at various events around the area before moving to the permanent home in Lock29 a few weeks ago.

Liam said: “So far, the most special thing about Lock29 has been how welcoming and friendly all the staff and other vendors have been.

"It has helped us feel comfortable and at home in a very short period. It has also been wonderful to see the positive feedback and reviews for our food from our customers, old and new.”

Chris Catford, general manager at Lock29, said: “It is our mission to ensure that the traders here at Lock29 are the very best at what they do, and Bobo’s Cambodian is just that. Boba and Liam have passion, skill, authenticity, and a great menu.

"It has been brilliant to see the customer feedback since they opened a couple of weeks ago.”
