“Overall Best Restaurant in Lincoln”
Reviewed September 25, 2008

My wife and I eat at The Oven very often. It is our favorite restaurant in Lincoln. We have been to all of the other Indian restaurants and we feel it is the best. The food is fantastic and very consistent. The service is also very good. The wait staff is young, knows the menu, and is enthusiastic. We prefer the atmosphere at the Hay Market location. It is more comfortable than the East location, but the food is the same at each. Every course at The Oven is outstanding. The Indian breads, the soup, the rice, and the main dishes. The wine list is very good and you have several choices of wines by the glass. My recommendation is the Chicken Tikka Makhani, or Chicken Buhna. You can't go wrong with either. The owner is often there to greet his customers. His restaurant is a gem.
