Upscale Indian Restaurant

This is definitely an upscale place. At lunch there was no buffet, but the dishes we ordered, a lamb saag and chicken masala were really good. The mulligatawny soup that came with the meal was also very tasty, as was the freshly baked papadum.

Based on the reviews...I expected more. The onion kulcha was good. I sat outside. I visited the second location on Pioneer. Inside was a bit dark. For dinner, I ordered chicken tikka. I am not sure if I got wrong meal. It was 4 pieces of chicken that was red on a bed of rice. The chicken tasted more like... More

We love the Oven. The food is amazing and the ambiance is superb. We tend to like this location best. Although the food is excellent at either location.

Went there one evening to catch up with a friend and have a good meal. Parking in that area was a minor challenge due to a large concentration of restaurants, shops and bars in the Haymarket area. Once inside, the dining experience was intimate. The low lighting and quiet atmosphere were very helpful for conversation. The wait staff was helpful... More

I have never been disappointed at The Oven. The service is always wonderful. The food is always amazing. The Naan breads are soooo good (Kabuli Naan is my fav) - it's difficult not to fill up on that and soup - but don't!! My kids get Chicken Tikka Naan and it is a great dish for those who don't know...

Consistently good food. Great wine list and a nice, but small basement wine bar. Definitely one of the best restaurants in Lincoln. If you want your food spicy hot, you'll have to ask for it that way.
