The ovisher is a good curry house. Slightly lacking in atmosphere...a bit too bright inside. The food was fabulous. Service was a bit awkward... the waiters were very friendly but a bit intrusive..a bit too familiar. However overall a great meal. Will be back.

An excellent restaurant with good food and friendly staff for reasonable prices. I love it and my parents like it enough that they insist on going every time they visit. Definitely would recommend.

I get together every few months with friends to play poker, and the Ovisher provide perfect food for a bunch of us with different tastes and big appetites! We all feel full, very happy and ready to play! Thanks Ovisher!

We went for dinner at 7:30pm, a table of 6. The service was extremely slow, and the waiters (particularly one) very abrupt and unfriendly. I ordered one bottle of wine and 4 glasses, as we would rather drink a small glass of cold wine each,...More

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.
