The Ovisher which means "The lovers meeting place" was established in 1981. Being one of the oldest Indian restaurants in Oxfordshire, it has been serving the people of Kidlington and Oxford for more than 30 years. One of our greatest boast is that three generations of families have now been enjoying the Ovisher cuisine. Our food is indeed aimed to be special and our experienced chef's are always studying our customers culinary desires, to produce good, if not the finest curry. This special food of ours is served in a warm and relaxing environment, set up by our friendly and attentive staff.

We stopped here on our way back home, lovely service from the outset. Our waiter greeted us with a smile. The meal was fantastic. The serving sizes where perfectly portioned. Reasonable prices for the excellent quality of the food. Will definitely remember this place and recommend to friends

We have visited a few Indian restaurants in the area, but always return here for the great food. Plenty of flavour, and not just a hot brown sauce poured over some meat that seems to pass as a curry in some places. I am a bit of a stick in the mud when it comes to my choice (a very... More

I witnessed the staff being extremely rude to local customers, who decided to leave and go elsewhere, the restaurant was almost empty and this was 9 pm Saturday ( speaks for itself ) The food is not great, there are far better curry houses around and nearby If you read through the positive reviews on here it is not hard...

We used to eat at The Ovisher but the last time we ate there with a newly single friend the waiter completely spoilt the experience; by stating that he couldn't work out the relationships and who was with who. My friend was absolutely mortified and obviously upset being sensitive to the fact she was eating with a married couple and... More

Dear valued customer, I couldn't agree with you more. Our waiters deeply take interest in their customers therefore they might ask you questions like which nearby town are you from, and etc. However you have to please understand that there is a logic and motive behind every question we ask, for example we might ask the town you are from...

I went here for my birthday and the staff were really welcoming. They had put a banner up and were quick to wish me happy birthday. The service was great and the food was really tasty. Loads to go around and really reasonably priced. This was the first time I had been here but I would definitely go again!
