My favorite Indian food in Lincoln is at The Oven- such wonderful use of aromatic spices without being hot (unless you want it that way!) The mulligatawny soup is Indian comfort food to me. The restaurant has the atmosphere to be "that special place" and some evenings there is live music to really add to the ambience.

The Oven is one of Lincoln's best restaurant It has a fine ambiance and high quality service. It has Lincoln's best Indian food by quite a margin and is better than Indian restaurants in cities much lager than Lincoln. We have tried quite a few things on the menu and they are all high quality with the mulligatawny soup and... More

Bland and boring Indian. I know some people love it but this place just doesn't do it for me. The mulligatawny and na'an are good. Just not enough to make me love it. I can nuke some TJ masala and get the same feeling.

Lazlos has been around for a long time and is locally owned. Not a chain! I love supporting local businesses, especially restaurants. The service is alway good, the food consistently great, and if there ever is an issue, they are quick to address it and make it right! A few of my favorites: french dip, rainbow chicken, applesauce and many... More

Not only is the food excellent, from the delicious options of Naan to start, but the service is awesome and there's also the fact they have an extensive and excellent wine list! We ordered a Frank Family Chardonnay for $46! And, you can cork it and take what ever you don't drink. Dinner for two including the wine and multiple... More
