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

Currently sat waiting to collect my takeaway, and am just about ready to chew my own arm off - I'm that ravenous! We've had many a takeaway from Ovisher, as we have found them to be the best in our vicinity - the food really is amazing! However, tonight has got me thinking that it maybe time for us to... More

Visited this evening with my son & feel very disappointed by the lack of manners or interest from the Staff. We have been here a few times before & it's been ok, never over friendly but this evening was terrible. We both felt like second class citizens and our custom was not wanted or appreciated. We watched other Customers arriving... More

Met up with some members of our Oxford based family including a child of just over one year old. When we arrived the high was ready and our corner table reserved. Our friendly waiter originating from Northern Romania was always available and very helpful. The food was good and we were able to enjoy a very relaxing lunch. GS

Looking at reviews one an often get differing opinions and there is no substitute from visiting yourself. We had heard of this one but this was our first visit. It was Christmas time and therefore the restaurant was beautifully decorated for the festive... More

Staff friendly, and very timely service. Not too expensive either. I ordered chicken chillie jalrezi, with pilau rice and plain nan. Last time a Chicken Madras. You can obviously have a drink whilst waiting. Very good cannot fault.

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.
