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 had booked a table for four of us for 8.30pm with plans to return in two weeks time for a 65th birthday celebration. However, our Starter was only just acceptable. The Main Course had been ordered but it didn't arrive until 10.00pm after I had asked when we might expect it! Two of the main courses were bland but... More

My wife and I had a superb meal here during our post Xmas break in Oxfordshire. We ordered far too much for the 2 of us but managed to eat most of it as it was so good. The staff are all very polite and courteous and nothing was too much trouble. We will definitely visit again when we are... More
