Great authentic Indian food

If you are in the mood for Indian Cuisine this is a great place. Had Chicken Korma and Lamb Rhogan Josh. Awesome. Well worth a visit

We went to the lunch buffet. This is our second time at this place. Food taste good. Wish they have bit more veggie dishes, since we are vegetarians. Service is always good.

I was not disappointed! It was outstanding! Very tasty, spicy and authentic! The service was fast! Of course it was a Sunday night but there was no wait! I will definitely be back!

If you have time, go to the lunch buffet. It is so worth it. Dinner service is great as well. The food is great and service is just as great.

We visited India's Oven with my son and a couple of his college buddies who are both from India. We enjoyed the food and the young men from India said the food was the closest they have found here in the states to what they would eat in India. We had the lunch buffet and were able to try a...

Everything about this place is a fantastic! The servers are some of the most professional I've experienced in this area, for one. They will also adjust, within reason, the level of spiciness in their dishes to suit the needs of their patrons. For me this is extremely important, considering I'm usually a huge wuss when it comes to spicy food.... More

Meh. The buffet was fair if you like the previous nights leftovers. The tandoori chicken was so dried out it was chicken jerky so it was inedible. The butter chicken was okay. The Korma meatballs are frozen Sam's/Costco meatballs that they marinate in the sauce so they were fairly disgusting. All in all it was just barely okay, but if... More

I am by no means an indian food expert, so I wont frame this review in that manner, but I can say that the lunch buffet was really a great way to experience some foods I might never try based on their own strength. If you wanted to wade into the realm of Indian food this might be a great... More

Our son lives in the area, so when we are visiting him, we often eat out. We've been to this place a few times and have never been disappointed with either the food or the service. Great Naan, wonderful Chicken Korma during our last visit and all reasonably priced. It's in a strip mall and is small and kind of... More
