Parking is great, behind co op lot of space available and in front of the restaurant a lot of space available. Food is high quality, with great authenticity. Service is top notch as well. Highly recommended.

Visiting family for Easter weekend and got a takeaway. Service was friendly and it seemed busy, but having eaten in curry houses and cooking Indian food myself i found the glow in the dark red food tasted the same in the three dishes we ordered. The rice was good. It was £25 which is far to cheap, which i guess... More

Service was rubbish and rushed. Gone downhill since my last visit here when the manager was tops. Since he left they are only interested in getting your money!!

Dear Sarge483, Hope you are doing well. I apologize if you felt that our service was as you say ‘rubbish and rushed' – sometimes when it is really busy, it is very difficult to maintain high standards – but we do really try and pardon us for any shortcomings in the service. But you also mentioned we are only interested... More

Every year I meet up with old friends from work and my wife has regular get togethers with her friends. We always choose the Ovisher because they make us very welcome and the food is fabulous.

Our recent visit to The Ovisher on Sunday resulted in complete satisfaction for our group of four. The selection available and the standard of the food is arguably the "best in town" and I have no hesitation in recommending this friendly restaurant to anyone.

Unfortunately the meals were not what we expected. The restaurant looks very nice and clean but the meat was dry and not tastefull.. After -at first not having ordered some bread- we wanted some anyway and the response was very unfriendly..

I came here the other day with my parents, my partner and my 20 month old daughter. It was my father's 70th birthday meal and I handed over a cake with candles when I arrived and asked if they could bring it out at the end of the meal. I was so pleased to see the effort they went to,... More

Did not have the opportunity to try this restaurant as a sit in yet but ordered a take away from them a couple of month ago. You can place your order on their website - very easy to use and quick. They then call you to confirm it - this was not that great, it was a very quick phone... More

Being one of the oldest Indian restaurants in Oxfordshire, it has been serving the people of Kidlington and Oxford for more than 30 years.

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.
