The Oven is one of my favorites restaurants in Lincoln, NE. The food is amazing and it's not expensive. If you like spicy and Indian food, that's your place in Lincoln! One thing that they could be missing is that they don't have Indian desserts, and that would be great!

Very upscale feel, very classy. Top notch service. What I really enjoy is that the food is also extremely authentic, and very very flavorful. Strongly recommend. A pleasure to eat at, and surprisingly good. Keep up the good work.

I've eaten at the Oven many times and have never been disappointed. This is my go to place for a nice romantic night out. I love the atmosphere and the historic HayMarket.The staff is well trained and if you are eating Indian food for the first time, will guide you thru the menu to help with your choices. A must...

First time I had ever had Indian Food, and I immediately fell in love. Tandoori Chicken and Naan bread is to die for, and The Oven does it perfectly! Definitely recommend!

The atmosphere and overall feel of the restaurant is very modern and classy. (A good feeling). The food was very delicious and the prices weren't out of the roof. The creamy chicken curry was exceptional, and the tandoori meats were very flavorful. Service was good, price was good, food was good. Nuff said.

As with all the other reviews, this restaurant is about the best Indian I've had. An appetizer called Chana Masala started us off, and I recommend that. Then on to some excellent entrees. My wife had the Tandoori Grill and I had the Kheema. They have an amazing wine and beer selection, which is good to help with the spice.... More

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
