Description: 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.

Visited with friends for our yearly get together and this year was really disappointing. Has it changed hands recently? Gone is the tidy, polite efficiency. It was so different and disappointing, we will meet elsewhere in the future. Food was only ok, not worth the travel time for many of us.

We've eaten at Ovisher a few times over thlast couple of years and the food has always been very good: great flavours and an interesting menu. The staff are also very pleasant. The one problem is that the place is in need of smartening up a bit. It's a little "tired" - and the "O" of the name is een... More

Used to live in Kidlington 20 years ago and visited on a number of occasions. A very good Indian was to be had. Returned last month with old work friends. The food was still very good and we were well looked after but we felt the prices were a little too high. Also it was very quiet only 2 other... More

The food was delicious, and the service was fast and friendly. Great value for money. I will definitely be using this restaurant regularly.

If the great food, good location and nice dining room weren't enough, the VERY friendly welcome at The Ovisher is second to none! I've eaten at The Ovisher on countless occasions and, if anything, it just gets better. Eat here, you won't regret it and you will go back.

My wife and I visited the Ovisher Tandoori for a second time and were just as impressed as the first. Our dishes were very tasty and served by the most friendly staff. Again, the restaurant is spotlessly clean, and the ambience restful. Prices very reasonable. Can highly recommend to new visitors.

Been here lots of times and got yo know them well. On my last meal I found two members of staff insulting. One tried to redeem himself, mr Barry, the owner, but I will not be returning. Now I have experienced ready stead spice I now realise ovisher tastes quite sloppy in comparison.
