Just as good a The Oven Downtown

We got takeout from here one night and it was just as good as their sister restaurant downtown. The restaurant location is a bit awkward, as the entrance is located on a walkway between buildings, and not the easiest thing to see from the parking areas. It's a shame that the restaurant... read more

We just moved to Lincoln and thought we would try this highly rated restaurant. We called on a Saturday night around 7:30 and surprisingly could get in. We arrived and the restaurant was about 20% occupied which was a red flag. We both tried entrees that were recommended by the staff and were on the milder side of traditional Indian... More

This is the clear front runner for our favorite restaurant in Lincoln. The food is always of the best quality. I have my favorite dishes, but I do try something new every few visits. If you are a little shy about trying Indian food, I suggest you start here or their other location in the Lincoln Haymarket. There are several... More

We joined friends for dinner at The Oven East on Feb. 13. I've often dined at The Oven in Lincoln's Haymarket and wasn't sure the more suburban version would stack up. It proved to be one of the nicest meals I've had in Lincoln recently. The food was excellent -- meeting or exceeding the high expectations I hold for The... More

the food here is great. it is on the spicy side, if you like some spice this will fill the bill. the servings are very generous. it is a little pricey, but is worth it. the service was excellent. it exceeded my expectations. I will certainly return here again. they are very good about serving a solo customer.

This is the place to go when you want something that is not the same old thing. I'm pretty sure it is authentic Indian. The place is elegant. I had the Gosht Akbari, lamb cooked with fruit and just spicy enough to have an after bite. We got there at 8:30pm on a Saturday, and got seated right away. My... More

The Oven East was located across a quiet street from our hotel and I'd eaten a couple of times at their Haymarket location so was happy to have this one located so close. It was a Saturday night and I was surprised that there wasn't much of a crowd there. We had garlic naan (very good), my husband had muligatawny... More

Always a good meal at the Oven in a relaxed trendy atmosphere. Arrived just before 6pm on a Friday without reservations and were seated immediately. By the time we left tables were filling up so if arriving later reservations are suggested. We ordered the spinach naan bread which is one of our favorites as an appetizer with a glass of... More

This was our first introduction to Indian food. We met a relative for dinner who had recommended Oven East as he is a local and had been there before. So we went with his suggestion. The restaurant is very nicely decorated and the tables and booths are reasonably spaced in a way that a large crowd was not seated elbow... More

I'm more of a Steak guy, but, would definitely recommend this place if you are looking for something different. Also, the entree's are all under $20 and many under $15. I had the madras, with both chicken and lamb. The only reason I didn't give The Oven a 5 star rating was that the meat was overcooked and dried out... More
