This Indian food was unexpectedly delicious. The meat samosas were our favorite item of the appetizer sampler. The lamb vindaloo, chicken tikka, and saag meat were all excellent as well. Our server was attentive and even offered to substitute extra veggies for one of our sides of rice. We would definitely dine here again!

The Oven serves the best Indian food in Lincoln! The atmosphere is nice, warm and casual. The food is outstanding and extremely consistent. I love their Mulligatawny soup. The wine list is impressive. For an different experience, head downstairs to The Cellar. You have access to the upstair menu, plus a tapas menu that includes foods not just from India.... More

The Oven is a great place if you're looking for some Indian food within Lincoln. Whilst the selection of dishes is relatively small, the food that is prepared is indeed good.

]This restaurant was recommended but it was disappointing. The shrimp tikka was dry and not very tasty. The chicken saag was a bit tasteless and the rice overdone. There was a chicken dish with a cream sauce that was awful. The service not that great either. Maybe it was a bad night but overall not a great experience.

We had no desire to seek out Indian cuisine, but the reviews in TripAdvisor strongly suggested The Oven was worth seeking out. We did so and were thoroughly impressed! Other reviewers suggested asking for help from the server; which we did and she was gracious and very helpful in guiding us in our selection. Both of our choices were just... More

very subdued, calm interior, with great food, moderate price. Our vegan companion had no problem, my chicken was delightful. Our waitress was able to guide us in our ordering according to our various tastes and preferences.
