This is the best Northern Indian food we've ever come across. We've been eating with Murad for close to 20 years when the Indian Oven was originally located on OSU Campus. About 10 years ago, ownership moved to a renovated warehouse type building near downtown. The ambiance is well beyond what you expect - huge windows allowing you to peer... More

My husband and I went to dinner with another couple on a Friday night. Everyone there, including the owner/manager, treated us like royalty. They couldn't have been more attentive and accommodating. I enjoyed a vegetarian dish (chick peas and potatoes in a delicious curry sauce). The other three people shared a shrimp dish, a chicken dish and a beef dish.... More

Had an amazing dinner here on Thursday evening. Extraordinary food. We had a lamb special that was perfectly cooked... tender and flavorful. A roasted chicken recommended by our server was another highlight. Fiery shrimp with vegetables and rice... just wonderful. Our server was exemplary as well. Genuinely attentive and helpful, very interested in how we enjoyed everything. Having tried about... More

I loved the food here. There are few changes made in style and presentation of different dishes. But what matters is taste. I would have given 5 star but its a little too costly for the some dishes. Overall a nice place in columbus downtown to dine in with friends, family alike. Try out the Roasted Chicken.

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!

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

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....
