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.

Amazing!

Ovisher is the best Indian Food I've tasted! We've been in there a few times and all the staff welcomed us superbly, especially Maruf- such a friendly face and very polite. Brilliant! Can't recommend enough!

For 3 of us (one only 12) we could easily have shared one of the rice dishes and got a naan bread as well as there was plenty of food! Would be great to... More
