very nice food, very pleasant place

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.

Well located in the center of the Haymarket district, the décor is beautiful, service was excellent, and the food was authentic. Excellent aloo gobi, soup, naan, nice salad too.

I selected The Oven for my birthday dinner this year. It was a nice evening so we sat out on the lovely patio. We ordered a bottle of wine to enjoy along with dinner. Excellent quality food and I loved the Mulligatawny soup. We shared chicken tikka makena and really enjoyed. Another location being added to our list for dining... More

We enjoyed our meal at The Oven. We opted to sit indoors, although there was a pretty large outdoor dining area. It is located in an old warehouse row in the Haymarket District. The entire area had a great vibe. We were only in Lincoln for one night and what a find! Our server was very friendly and did a... More

I didn't believe it years ago that Nebraska could have an Indian restaurant of such quality. The Mulligatawny soup alone is worth the trip. Good wine selection. Bar knows how to mix drinks from Manhattans to Dirty Martinis.

Went with a large party on Sunday night and were seated quickly. This was my first visit but most of the rest of our party had been here many times and had their favorites. There is a large selection of dishes and different ways they serve naan. I found the meat and lentil stuffed naan just okay. The chicken tikka... More

I didn't eat in the restaurant but I did visit the wine bar in the basement. This place has an excellent selection of cellared wines and the fellow who served me is extremely knowledgeable and friendly

My wife and I always seek out new places to eat, or new to us places to eat. As such we've been waiting for about six months to make it back to Lincoln to specifically go to The Oven. Perhaps our anticipation, after all that we have heard by word of mouth and the reviews that we have read, was... More

Having been told about this restaurant before we left home and then again told by our hotel, we set forth to find the best Tikka Masala in Lincoln. We were seated in a window table and enjoyed the wide but typical variety of menu items . The offerings were straight forward and not extremely creative in preparation nor in presentation... More

Two Words: AMAZING FOOD. This is a very special restaurant in Lincoln, NE that my wife and I love. Their Naan is to die for, we usually order multiple types to enjoy with our meals (The Garlic Naan is my favorite.) I always enjoy the Lamb, my wife loves their chicken. There is not a particular type of each that... More
