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.

Had a flyer through the door from Ovisher, inviting us to their Easter offer. Was not disappointed one bit with Ovisher's efforts in making our Easter metal spot on. Their Easter decor was exceptionally lovely along with the Mr egg man desserts that was given at the end.
