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

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

When I walked in, I loved the deco and the ambiance and thought I was in for a treat ! I ordered the Chicken Buriani and called my wife to inform her that I found a great Indian Restaurant. Never judge a book by its cover. I was served 2 large stogy Papadams as a free appetizer. Papadam should be... More

With my co-workers' suggestion, we ate at Indian Oven for lunch. You could select from the regular menu or buffet. I didn't think there was anything special about or stood out from the buffet selection. Rice, veggie curry, chicken curry, potatoes, nan, and chicken tandori. They all tasted good. Chicken curry was a bit of disappointment because chicken was a... More

It cost 9.75 and because the number of item on it was so limited I ordered chicken masala off the... More
