Best Indian food in Lincoln. Service is great and always friendly. This is a “must eat” place!! Wide range of options to choose from and the jalapeño beer is delightful.

I absolutely love the Oven. My favorite restaurant in Lincoln. Amazing wine list, and menu. I love the lamb or chicken Buhna and Vindaloo. You will never be disappointed. Ask for Tashi. She is world class in customer service as well as the entire staff.
