I have actually gone here several times now while visiting Lincoln. I really like it. The food is always delicious. The restaurant is great for just a casual dinner with friends or a nice night out on a date.

This is a nice restaurant, but I was overall unimpressed. The location is nice, in the heart of Lincoln, and there is shaded outdoor seating. The service was fine and I always had water in my cup. Apart from the amazing soup, I was unimpressed by the food. For the price, the portions were not very generous. I had the... More

Five of us for dinner and they couldn't have looked after us better. Food was excellent and the restaurant is very well appointed. Staff were a good bunch and the restaurant had a good feeling about it. Well worth dropping into but there's plenty of choice.

If you are looking for impeccable dining in Lincoln Ne. try the Indian oven. The food is incredible as is the staff. One of the best wine selections in the city plus the wines are more reasonably priced without the high mark up. Our favorites are the Thimphu chicken, chicken jalfrazie and mixed tandoori grill.

Had the sampler app and a lamb and chicken dish. Both were tender and spicy and perfectly done. Was only in town for 1 night and chose the right place. FYI, their wine list is also incredible. Would go back again if traveling through town.

The Indian food served at this place is different than most of the Indian restaurants across the country (New York, Chicago). It is a lot lighter as they use less oil but the taste is excellent.

We annually visit The Oven Restaurant when we visit friends and relatives in Omaha and Lincoln. Good Indian cuisine is often hard to find in the US, but this is one of the top Indian restaurants we have found. The menu is extensive, and we have always had a great meal there. Wine selection is extensive, the staff is friendly... More

They have a good selection of Indian food, most are spicy. My Biryani with shrimp was good and more than I could eat. I would go there again.
