The service is amazing and he food never disappoints. The samosas are to die for. My favorite part is that I can ask to have as little or as much spice as possible and they always do it perfectly.

Dining at Indian Oven on a recent Saturday night we were pleased to find a restaurant where we could converse and be heard. The food was delicious, service was great, and we enjoyed the whole evening. I had shrimp and veggies in a wonderful tomato sauce spiced mildly for my tastes. My husband had the special of the night --... More

I took an Indian client to this location and the first two things he noticed was the empty restaurant and the overpriced menu. I am American and eat Indian food once a week in various cities as I am on the road 5 days a week. We were both disappointed with the experience. I did not care for the food... More

We love to go to Indian oven in downtown Columbus near children's hospital for amazing food and a friendly atmosphere . The owner greets you personally upon arrival and often will sit for a chat as well. The food is consistently excellent with many options. Favorites are the chicken tikka, the palek paneer and an eggplant dish ( the name... More

I moved away from C'bus and I miss (of all things) Indian Oven. I moved to a Indian rich area, but I compare everything to the Indian oven days. I have even frozen their chutney and muled it to my friends in CA and DC! I LOVE the Shrimp Palau

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.
