OK, I'm not a great Indian food person, but still the food here was poor, in my case a "kabbob" that was like a rock-hard, tasteless hot dog. The portions are enormous, which is why I think people are drawn to this place: a take-out...More

The food here is always so good! One of the things we like best is how helpful the staff is in helping us order food since we don't have much experience with Indian food.

After a couple of weeks of travel, the Indian cuisine at The Oven was a welcome respite from pub fare. We ordered raita (a yogurt based side with cucumber) to dissipate the potential spiciness of any of the entrees we ordered but none were overly...More

My friend and I chose this restaurant because of the good reviews and we both love Indian food. We chose a non-vegetarian Thali which means tray; great choice because one gets small bowls of most food, and it includes a desert. The naan was great,...More

We have been told about the goodness of this Indian restaurant. Authentic Indian cousine in the Haymarket area. A wide range of dishes to choose, including for vegan and dietary restrictions too. A flaw is perhaps the value for money, but it is fairly compensated...More

The food i had was an South Asian Dish called "Brayani". The food served was not even close to that. It was a worse food quality. Also during bill, they charged 20% of tips automatically whereas we were not satisfied by the food quality at...More

Indian cuisine is one of my all time favorites, so I've been to my fair share of Indian restaurants (both domestic and international), and this has to be the worst restaurant I've ever tried. My brother got sick from it, and the food was so...More

I recommend Tandoori chicken from the oven, a side of Saag (spinach), a side of Raita (cucumber and yogurt salad), papadam (crispy thin bread), and rice. This meal is both very healthy and filling and is not at all spicy.
