Lunch is a buffet style. Limited choices, but ALL good. Nice change from fast food joints. Price is reasonable - you'll spend as much on a burger - so enjoy the different flavors of India instead. Healthier too.

Great Indian food. Love the Butter chicken with cheese naan. Also the polluck panier (spelling is off, sorry) is very good. They have a buffet for lunch so you can try a little bit of everything.

Love going for the lunch buffet that happens to also be 7 days a week! If we get water my wife and I eat and get stuffed for under 20 bucks. Always a great flavorful variety. Love the rice pudding and the mango pudding too when they have it.

I ordered the Mattar Mushroom, Naan Bread, Vegetable Samosas and Mango Lassi. All of the food was delicious. Everything had such good flavor and just the right amount of spice. I regularly eat Indian food in Minnesota so it was nice to find such a great Indian restaurant in Swansea. I will definitely eat here again if I am in... More

I love the food here. It's my go-to place if my husband or I want a special treat. We love Indian food. The decor is very simple so some might not find it fancy enough - that is the only reason I gave it 4 instead of 5 stars. I prefer to go at lunch time when there is an... More

I've been a regular at India's Oven for the past 4 or 5 years. As my review title implies, I'm pretty happy with them. Their food compares favorably to anything in the St. Louis metro area. The lunch buffet is a great deal at $8. The rest of the menu is good and reasonably priced. Very good chai; they also... More

I can't believe nobody has posted a review for India's Oven. It's hands down the best Indian food on the Illinois side. Maybe people miss it because it's a smaller storefront in the strip mall. My wife and I always go for the lunch buffet. The nan is great. The tomato cream chicken is my favorite and I've yet to... More
