“Excellent Indian Food in th Cathedral City”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Were visiting Palm Springs and the Coachella Valley with an eye towards moving here, and so as part of our exploration we researched the restaurants with our favorite cuisines. Indian was definitely on our list. Back in our hometown, Chicago we have a very large Indian community and frequent restaurants that appeal to the Indian community rather than Westerners. We were VERY impressed with India Oven. We loved that it was small an intimate and the food we had was AMAZING. We rank it amongst one of the best Indian meals we've had. We liked it so much we ate here twice during our visit. We're planning on moving to Palm Springs and are very happy to know that we'll be able to enjoy this restaurant on a regular basis.

“Loved this restaurant”
Reviewed May 17, 2013 via mobile

There is an acute shortage of Indian restaurants in this area so we were really happy to find this place. The food was excellent and unusual, I loved the olive nan. It is small and cosy, good value, a great find. We wanted a half portion of vegetable curry as a side which the waiter told us couldn't be done ( surely not impossible) but otherwise it is top of our list for Friday night curry.

“If you like Indian Food, this is the place to come to”
Reviewed May 16, 2013

Stumbled upon this hidden in a small strip mall, delightful small restaurant with pleasing Indian ambiance and an extensive menu. Serviced by a member of the owner's family, advice on menu items was given patiently, and our order war served promptly. From Naan bread to our main course, the food was delicious and portions generous. India Oven has been added to the must go to list of restaurants for our future visits in the Palm Springs area. Anyone liking Indian food will be pleased here. Needless to say, prices are very reasonable.

“Oh, Yessss!”
Reviewed March 9, 2013

Very nice, cozy little restaurant, friendly and efficient service, great food! It's owned and run by a family and they really have their act together. Attractive Indian decor, ambiance and music. It gets real busy after about 6:30, even on weekdays, so do make reservations! We shall return again...and again...and again!
