The food here is very good. I especially like their Chicken Tikka and the Mullagatawny Soup. Yum! They also have an excellent wine bar on the lower level. If you can't find something you like among their huge selection of wines, then you can't find it anywhere.

The oven by far is the Indian restaurant to not miss in Lincoln! There are others but this is an up class establishment that serves quality food with cooks that get it right every time! Garlic naan is also amazing along with a few other savory bread appitizers!

I've been several times over the past few years. We always get wonderful service. It's a great place to go out to eat with a group or for a date night.

The Oven, at both locations, has always had solid Indian cuisine. Never had a bad experience there at all. Serve is top notch in my opinion. Atmosphere is different between the two locations, but each good in its own way. Happy to go either way!

My wife and I have been eating at this restaurant at least once a week since 1990. We travel a lot and make it our goal on every European or Domestic trip to seek out the best local Indian food. We have never bested this place. The owner is hands on and there daily, they have a Wine Spectator award... More

Overpriced food. Kids probably will not like this place. Definitely not a family restaurant. Parking is a problem on the busy days of the week. Restaurant located in Lincoln's Hay Haymarket district.

The food was very good and the wine list was extensive. Our server was quite capable at explaining the menu to us even though we don't know anything about Indian cuisine. She made recommendations that lived up to her statements. Ambiance was good, parking was very close. All in all I would recommend this restaurant without hesitation.

I was pleased with the food, service, and decor. We had a drink downstairs from the wine bar beforehand. That was a pleasant surprise. There are vegetarian options and carnivore dishes too. I will definitely be back to try more dishes!

This is the first place I ever tried Indian food. I liked it immediately. The chicken korma is my favorite, but I prefer mild favors. The garlic naan cannot be beat. They also have a great selection of wines & drinks.
