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.

This has been our favourite for many years, but my last visit was a bit of a shock. Overt owner Mr Bari has sold and gone. The place has been rrfurbished and restaffed, not necessarily for the better. The place seemed to be in chaos, staff in confusion, and when we eventually got our food, although the quantity seemed similar,... More

Very good meal from the seasonal menu. I had a spiced lamb shank with a side of lentils/ spinach for the main course which was bursting with spicy flavours. Having left with cash on the table I was chased outside by the boss as the amount was wrong - I'd mistakenly left an extra ten pounds! Most unlike me, so... More

I reviewed The Ovisher in August and felt the price didnt match the tired decor of the restaurant. WOW!!! The new owner has turned the Ovisher into the NEW Ovisher. It has curbside appeal again as it had all those years ago and the interior is light bright modern and smart which now fully justifies the price. The food is... More
