My meal (lamb balti - not too spicy, very flavourful) was delicious and the price for three people was very reasonable. Very busy when we arrived so staff weren't very chatty but were very friendly once they had time to talk.

We always have a good time when we go to Ovisher. The service is great (and quick!), the food is delicious, and they've given me £5 off for my birthday for the last two years. Definitely more than enough reason to recommend!

The food was delicious, we had salmon tandoori which was huge and the best salmon I've ever tried. The Goan masala curry was very hot, which was perfect. The waiters are the politest people ever!

We have been to the Ovisher many times; whether it's for the Banquet night on Tuesdays or a social evening with friends, the restaurant never disappoints! The service is excellent and the food is always tasty. A firm favourite Indian restaurant in the area.

Under new management since Mr Abdul Bari retired, The Ovisher continues to offer a varied selection of extremely good Asian cooking. Maruf and his team cope well with a choice of eat in, takeaway or delivered food and we would not hesitate to take any of our friends or relatives there. Colin/Lynn Fisher.

Whenever we go here, the food is always excellent, the staff are friendly and helpful and the prices are reasonable. I go to a lot of curry houses and this one is always a pleasure to visit.
