I especially love the paneer vindaloo. Great traditional breads, dial up or down the spice without sacrificing quality, flavor or authenticity.

Take a left at the entrance to The Oven, go down the stairs and you'll find yourself in the cozy, very inviting Cellar. There, Somelier and Oven Manager Charles Ludwig created a special meal for our group of seven. Five courses of intriguing East Indian fare, each paired with a wine - and Charles' entertaining as well as knowledgeable insights... More

Two separate colleagues from different parts of the country immediately said that I needed to visit The Oven on my trip to Lincoln. I don't know that this was the best Indian food I ever had, but it was very nice. The menu had a good selection. A positive for me was an extensive wine list, which I wouldn't have... More

We had the spinach dip appetizer which is very hearty and the flavor is to die for! My husband had the chicken tikka and I had the mixed grill. The flavors were outstanding. The restaurant is warm and inviting and the wine selections were wonderful. Definitely worth a visit if you enjoy Indian fare.

I love the Chicken Bhuna, and the Mulligatawny soup is great too. I prefer the downtown location for atmosphere, but both places have good service and the southeast location is nice when you don't want to deal with event crowds and parking downtown.

By some of my friends standards this is the best indian food in Lincoln. I don't agree but it is indeed good food, good service and overall a very good place to dine. Love their Mulligatawny soup.

My husband drags me to Indian restaurants everywhere, including overseas, and The Oven in Lincoln, Nebraska is always the standard we use to compare. Their food is top-notch, the ambiance is sophisticated, and their service superb. We've been there for both lunch and dinner. The owner is almost always on site, which translates into a well-run establishment.
