We have eaten Indian food all over the world including in India. This ranks very high. They have a window where you can watch the chef at the tandoor oven. Some of the best naan I have ever. We had a minced meat kabob, naan, Bombay Dahl and raita. Prices were very reasonable and it is in a refurbished warehouse... More

I've heard people say this is the best Indian food, anywhere. After my travels I will have to agree. There are many vegetarian options to choose from. Before I became vegetarian, I think the Goa Shrimp from here was the best meal I've ever had. The wine list is simply amazing, like, unbelievable. I've taken friends and family here who... More

We love this restaurant, and have visited both locations frequently. The portions are generous without being ridiculous, the curry is always delicious, the spicing is for Midwestern palates, but can be enhanced if you like the heat. The salads are fresh and delicious and the Mulligatawny soup is wonderful. Get the naan for sopping up every drop. Great place--we'll be... More

After not eating at the oven(downtown) for some time we decided to try it for dinner before a James Taylor concert. All the restaurants in the Haymarket were full and busy as was the Oven. The service was quick,friendly and professional. I had the chicken tikka madras biryani and it was very good. The chicken was a little dry but... More

Have been here twice before. Have never been disappointed. Service is quick, food is very tasty and if you want spicy, they can meet your needs. But also can tone it down for those who don't want that. Good place. Give it a try.

The Oven "East" is absolutely outstanding food. Their spinach bread with mint chutney is out of this world. Everything is always good, cooked perfect with the same great flavor everytime

The food from the Oven, both locations, never fails in all the years I've gone there. The sauces and always immensely flavorful, (try the Chicken Madras) and the ingredients (especially the meats) of high quality. Our kids love it too. No other place in town comes even close to this one.

You can't go wrong with this place. We've tried Indian in Chicago, St. Louis, San Fran, on and on and The Oven ranks among some of the best we've tried. Ironically Lincoln has 3 great Indian spots including Tandoor and Sher E Punjab. The Oven has the best overall atmosphere but the food rocks at all three.

The Oven has consistently good Indian food. I like everything. The mulligatawny is great (and vegan by the way) and the mint chutney is thick and spicy. You can't go wrong here. Of course, I love Indian food, so I might be bias :)

As always, it feels like back on the road to evaluate Indian restaurants! Food is very good here and the ambiance is good too. Their salad dressing and mint chutney (which goes with Chicken Tikka Masala) is excellent. It has areas where if one wants privacy and quietness then that can be achieved. Servers are good but if they understood... More
