Fantastic Lincoln spot for Indian food. 8/25/2009

The Oven is a great place to get Indian food in Lincoln. The atmosphere is very nice and I've never been disappointed in anything that I've ordered. It's especially pleasant to sit outside on their patio to eat if the weather is cooperating. The owner is often working and is friendly to us each time we come. The soup is incredible. more

Best indian anywhere 9/5/2007

Not to be overly dramatic but I'm a bit of an indian food snob. I have eaten in restaurants all over the states...both coasts...all major cities and at least 30 different times all over the UK, not to mention other major cities in Europe. The Oven is not only the best restaurant in Lincoln but could indeed be the best Indian restaurant in the world. Order anything its all FANTASTIC. And when they ask you if you want the soup or the salad...order the soup...if you want the salad, you don't deserve to be eating there. Oh, and not that its important with this quality of food but you can walk out of there with a starter, entree and drinks for under $30. Don't even read the reviews for the other Indian restaurant in Lincoln...they're all just trying to be The Oven. Pros: Possibly the best Indian food in the world Cons: Its in Lincoln, Ne more

One of the top restaurants in Lincoln 12/5/2006

This is definitely the best Indian restaurant in Lincoln, and an argument could be made that it's the best restaurant in Lincoln, period. Their dishes are generally in the $15 range, and the portions are very generous. I love their Lamb dishes (I'd rather eat a lamb here than lamb at Billy's, even if the price was comparable, though in fact, the Oven will cost you half as much. By the way, apparently citysearch thinks ra*k, *=c is a bad word), the Tandori is excellent, as are the various naan bread offerings. The bar is ummatched in Lincoln. Louis XIII? check. Macallan aged 25 years? check. Fat tire on tap? check. They even have Chimay Blue, though I'd never pay $30 for it. I don't have the expertise to comment on the wine menu, though I'd imagine its quality matches the other menus. The service is excellent, and the quiet, relatively dimly lit interior also gets high marks. Highly Recommended. Pros: Great prices, great quality Cons: Indian spices may not be to everyone's taste (though there are plenty of mild dishes to try) more

The Oven 6/27/2006

The Oven is kind of a fancy little place in the Haymarket that serves Indian food for lunch and dinner. The lunch prices are fairly reasonable. You get lots of food, and it is consistently high quality in taste and ingredients. It's the kind of place where you want to go back and try something else, and something else. Pretty soon you get a list of favorites. This is absolutely one of my most favorite restaurants in Lincoln. I love their stuffed breads, the Mulgatawny soup, and the rice pudding. The lamb is excellent! If you want to impress someone, or simply want really good Indian food, The Oven is the place to go. PROS: Great atmosphere and fantastic Indian food. CONS: more

Owner Message

  • The Oven Restaurants specialize in Northern Indian Cuisine which is known for its rich colors, flavor profiles and a unique style of cooking in a clay oven, called the Tandoor. Chicken, shrimp and lamb marinate for several hours in a yogurt and spice mixture and placed on skewers while various breads are being hand made by our chefs fresh each day. The skewers and breads are then placed in the tandoor over an open flame where breads are cooked to perfection and the rich flavors are sealed in to ensure tenderness and quality of the meat..
