The food i had was an South Asian Dish called "Brayani". The food served was not even close to that. It was a worse food quality. Also during bill, they charged 20% of tips automatically whereas we were not satisfied by the food quality at...More

This is more upscale than many Indian/Himalayan restaurants. This is in the trendy Haymarket area so we found street parking to be challenging. We both ordered chicken dishes and they used large chunks of white meat that had been overcooked and were consequently very dry....More

The Oven is my second favorite place to have Indian food in Lincoln. You can ask how hot and spacy do you want your meal. The staff is very helpful and they are happy to help you navigate through these exotic dishes. The lentil soup...More

The oven is one of the best dining experiences you could have! Great Staff, great food and the best soup I have ever had. The Tandori chicken is out of this world. This is a must to do on your list when in Lincoln.

What would you recommend for someone who does not like spicy foods for a dinner there?

Response from AnthonyLNK |
I recommend Tandoori chicken from the oven, a side of Saag (spinach), a side of Raita (cucumber and yogurt salad), papadam (crispy thin bread), and rice. This meal is both very healthy and filling and is not at all spicy.
