We found this restaurant when we were visiting the Haymarket area last week. Very good Indian food. Good prices. Good service from the staff. We had hummus and samosas for an appetizer and shared the lamb curry entree. Good atmosphere, as well.

The Oven is my very favorite restaurant ever! I have eaten there many times and it is consistently delicious every time! I have tried many things on the menu and they are all delicious. The muligatawny soup is spicy and wonderful. We love the variety of naan....the chicken tikka madras....the shrimp masala....the safed maas.....all of them! We enjoy the atmosphere,... More

I've eaten in Indian restaurants more times than I can count. I'm from the UK, where curry is almost our national dish. I was excited to eat at a place so highly ranked. It really was nothing like any Indian I've been to before, and not in a good way. Soup or salad to start...That's strange. What salads do they... More

I do love Indian food as you will have seen from my past reviews but I found the Oven to be disappointing. The samosa was very good but the chicken korma was far from creamy, some of the chicken was dry. A good Indian restaurant should always ask how spicy you would like your food. This was not asked but... More

The Oven was a great surprise. It is a beautiful restaurant in the renovated factory area of Lincoln. The food and service were excellent. We ordered lamb and chicken sagg. Both were terrific. I strongly recommend this restaurant.

Went on recommendation of the Hyatt staff. Selections/choices were extensive. Very reasonably priced. I got a couple of appetizers a soup and an entree and left under $30.

We have been coming here ever since it opened. I haven't been here in over 10 years since I moved to Las Vegas but I can say it's the same great Indian food!! We had chicken tandoori, lamb vindaloo, mixed grill tandoori and Tikka wrap. It was all wonderful! Highly recommend if you down in Haymarket area!!!!
