Good take-out experience

We live downtown and this is the closest Indian restaurant without driving up to the Dublin area. I wasn't in the mood to dress up Saturday night so we ordered take-out. The Chicken Spinach dish was delicious and the Tandoori Keema Naan was very good! Abi

Our dine-in and take out experiences have both been terrible. We aren't sure what was worse -- the service or the food. When we tried dining in, we suspect there were cleanliness issues in the kitchen, which the staff reacted very rudely to when we said something. I would highly recommend that if you love Indian food, or are trying... More

The Indian Oven is our "go to" when we want gourmet Indian in Columbus, Ohio. Our meals always start and end well. The owner is always there to greet us in personal ways making us feel right at home. Mali Kofta is my favorite and the mint chutney is so good!

The experience I had here was wonderful! The food was great, I had the special of the day and it was great. I ordered it a little too spicy, normally this wouldn't be a problem, I would just mix it with rice. The rice portions are smaller than many other Indian restaurants. However, I would return, overall the food and... More

Indian Oven has a fairly typical (and typically extensive) menu of Indian standards, but the off menu specials are often wonderful, so definitely consider them if you go. Tonight I had the fish biryani which was very good. The restaurant is a large elegant feeling space with lots of windows, and tables with white tablecloths. Service is friendly and efficient....

I was visiting Columbus, OH for business and went to this restaurant in downtown for dinner. This is walking distance from the center of the city. I ordered Chicken Kebob, Dal Makhni, Onion Bread and Kingfisher beer. The service was good and food was yummy. The ambience is good and the restaurant is clean and nice.

Service and food were awesome. I had the goat. My wife had the chicken special and my son had the butternut squash and chicken special. All were great. Prices were very reasonable. I will be returning often.
