Great food, attentive service

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... read 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

The decor is nicely done, but this location is in a small strip business-shopping plaza, which affects the ambience a little. However, the food was very good. Definitely go for the soup -- it was great. Our curry and tandoori meals were both nice, and also heated up well the next night. The naan was wonderful!

The service was helpful and the decor pleasant, especially for a strip mall. The chicken tikka masala was slightly greasy and not as creamy as I would have liked but above average. The rice was more Midwestern than Indian but the onion kulcha was delecious. Not sure I would return unless I lived here instead of visiting.

We visit during lunch or dinner, and service is always excellent. Menu has variety, and portions are big. We always munch on the papadums.
