Our friend, visiting from out of town, uses lamb vindaloo as the benchmark dish for judging Indian restaurants. He was not disappointed by The Oven's rendition. My selection was the vegetables Madras; it's slight sweetness was a nice contrast to the heat of the chilies in the sauce. I also recommend getting maah dal as a side with your curry... More

The whole family loves The Oven. We all have our favorite dishes and it is one of our favorite Friday night spots. The wait staff is very good and the food is even better.

Great atmosphere and the food beaver disappoints. Try the wine cellar for the states largest selection of wines along with a sample tasting dispenser. Indian food can feel spice but tell server to go light on the curry and you don't go wrong. Also try the mulligatina soup and roti bread.

The Oven is my home town Indian restaurant. But it is also the best Indian restaurant I have ever eaten at including in NYC, London & Montreal. I love the Chicken Bhuna and the Vegetable Madras. But Lamb Madras and Chicken Tikka Madras are also wonderful.
