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.

This used to be a frequent stop for us, but it's been some time. Went during the week and was a little disappointed how few people were there. Service was great, as was the food. Only small complaint was that the naan didn't seem to be as good as it had been. But the two entrees were fantastic. Time and... More

I have had quite a bit of Indian food. It is one of my favorite kinds of food culturally. I have driven past this place for many years and didn't check out the place until this month. One of my best friend's who is Indian, told me that the food was good. So that spoke volumes. When I arrived I... More

The owner was very personable and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. Our waitress, Kelsey, was great and attentive. It seemed as if this restaurant has many regular customers and it has a warm atmosphere. The food was very good as well. My favorite dish was the free range chicken with yogurt-ginger sauce that was one... More
