“Hair in rice and the rice was super hard”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 18, 2012

The atmosphere was decent but there was a long hair in my rice and the rice was pretty hard. The dishes were ok, drinks just ok as well.

“Not worth a visit”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 13, 2012

Ambiance - They have outdoor seating in the old market area but its right next to a cigar shop, so that was ruled out. The interior was nice, they were promoting a local artist, which was good to see.

Menu - very limited vegetarian selection, especially for the entrees. Might be a Omaha thing, but you can have an Indian restaurant with only 10-15% vegetarian options.

Food - seems like they want to artsy/trendy about the food without really focusing on taste/flavor. It wasn't anything to rave about at all.

Service - There was only one waiter, who had no clue about the ingredients.
The owners/chef seemed to be pre-occupied with talking with the artist and non Indian folks. It was disturbing to see that they did not stop by even once to ask how things were. We felt singled out (as Indians) as they did appear very friendly with non Indians. This behavior when there were only 3-4 tables occupied.

Cost - $$ but not worth it at all. There is much better and cheaper food in town.

Overall, a truly disappointing experience. Waste of time and money.Wish the owners get their priorities straightened out, else its all downhill.

“Wonderful!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 31, 2012

Potentially the best Indian food I've had in Nebraska. It's a fairly small restaurant, keeping it quite personal. Great prices, large selection, and lots of wine!

“One of the worst restaurants ever!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 17, 2012

1- The food took too long to be ready! I mean... almost 1 hour later!
2- The appetizers were not what he have asked for... after all the waiting...
3- The entrees were plain nasty! Overcooked or raw, NOTHING was edible.
4- I complained and received zero better service! After 15 more minutes something even worse (burnet food) cameback in exchange of what was raw before!
5- Costumer services was a joke! Had to beg for my glass of water!

THIS IS NOT A RESTAURANT! IT IS A BED JOKE !!! Please, the best thing is to never even go there. My poor family left the place hungry and angry after spending almost $100!

“Omaha's Oldest and Best Indian Restaurant”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2012

My husband and I go to the Indian Oven whenever we have a craving for Indian food. This is an upscale Indian restaurant with professional service, and a great menu and wine list. We have been going to this place for over 20 years and the food and service has always been consistently great. They have varied the menu over the years to add choices for those who do not like Indian food, but most of the menu is high quality dishes. The owner/manager is usually in the restaurant to oversee the food preparation and table service. We usually have a tandori chicken or shimp and a curry vegetable dish. They have several types of Naan bread...try the cashew and golden raisin.
