Decided to stop for a meal on the way back to our hotel accommodation near Thame. So glad we did. The food was excellent, staff very polite, attentive and efficient. It was a Tuesday night which is their banquet night(great value). We have experienced banquet nights nearer home and whilst good for drawing the customers they tend to serve smaller... More

I can recommend the Ovisher. Particularly on a Tuesday when they have a special Banquet night menu. Starter, main course, and side order with any rice for just £11.95. Excellent menu friendly service and very tasty.

An unexpected Monday evening sans children led us to an evening meal here. A great meal served by attentive friendly and welcoming staff. Certainly worth a visit if you are a vegetarian.

I have ordered from Ovisher for at least two years now. They are very prompt, sound very knowledgeable and courteous on the phone. I love the fact that you can pay using a card on phone orders too. We love the food they cook. My Mrs loves their Akbari chicken with pilau rice. She won't have anything else now. They... More

I visited Ovisher for the first time with a friend. The staff were all very friendly and keen to make sure we enjoyed our food. The food itself was delicious and very filling a good selection available for all tastes as well. I would definitely recommend and would certainly consider a return trip.

Normally I don't respond to reviews, but if a review is not true then it is my duty to put things into correct perception, as everyone knows customers can't always be right. The first point you mentioned about the Biryani: Our Banquet night consists of four items (Starter + Main + Side + Rice or Nan). The Biryani is a... More

Party was booked for 10 people, we arrived early, at which point the manager asked if the party was for 8 or 10. As we were not the ones that booked we did not know, and would not be able to confirm. The manager at that point took 2 seats from us saying 'it's not my fault'. When I spoke... More

Was recommended to go here by the staff at The Boat Inn and what a recommendation!! We went on a Tuesday, their banquet night and got more food that we could possibly eat at an unbelievable price and they let us take the left overs home.

Went to the 'Banquet Night' (happens every Tuesday - fixed price for starter, main course,side dish and rice/bread). Food is very nice. Staff are pleasant. Prices reasonable. We will go again.

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.
