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.

After a few heavy shopping spree I still had a few tenners left to spend and tried a takeaway at Ovisher.

It is very difficult to find a restaurant that cater to the need of your allergy. Suffering from dairy allergy, the restaurant did well in indicating which dishes contain dairy. Their handbook was extremely helpful as it showed which dishes it was safe for me to have. The waiter were very polite and very patient with my order and that... More

I have always found the Ovisher to be perfectly "okay", but a couple of years ago we ordered a takeaway on line from another nearby restaurant which then became our number one. However, last time we tried to go there, they were fully booked and so we popped round to the Ovisher instead. It is safe to say that they... More
