    Waiter took forever & messed up orders. Mixed up our orders. My food was to be mild & another person was to get spicy. Food orders came reversed. Food so spicy I couldn’t eat it. Not more than the initial bite. It’s a shame because the restaurant has great ambiance but the group of us will never be back.

    Have been going to Indian Oven for many many years. It's been a while though. Our dinner was perhaps the best dinner we've had at Indian Oven ever. Every single morsel of food was spot on. Chicken Tikka Masala and Combination Biryani were tasty, tender, and perfectly spiced. The samosas and chutney were so good that we added two additional orders to take home. Truly enjoyed our dinner!!!

    The service was bad. The girl asked us if we wanted drinks 20 min after we got seated. She was rude. The food was not great. It was late and cold. Chai tea was brought without milk or sugar or spices, we had to assemble it ourselves.

    My husband and I sat at our table for 45 and never got service. No menus, no water, not even a hello I’ll be with you shortly from a server. I understand being busy and short staff but I don’t understand bad customer service. Within that 45 mins we watched other tables be sat with menus, get drinks and place their food orders. When we left I called and asked for the manager, the person who answered the phone said she was very busy. I explained the situation to him. He was very apologetic and said he would take care of us if we came right back. I told him NO because we’re not waiting another hour on food. I didn’t want to pick my baby up super late from the sitter because they couldn’t handle being busy! He took my info and assured that someone would call me during the upcoming week! Still no call!!! But I hear the food is really good.

    Bright and clean! We were seated immediately and the staff was very prompt without being a nuisance. Our order came and was accurate. The meal was outstanding and the dishes we ordered, spicy, were truly spicy and not just tingling on the tongue. We take family and friends there.

    Nice ambience and service. However, it has the same, tired menu of most North Indian restaurants. The dishes we ordered were very good, which included two entrees. The breads; onion naan and paratha were excellent. Unfortunately, the entire experience was ruined by the dessert (rasamalai), which were misshapen, discolored, and excessively sweet. (The liquid base, which should be milk-based, seemed watery). Not a nice way to finish.

    Wonderful service and the food is outstanding. I asked for a medium-hit heat for my biryani and the server had me mix the spices after bringing to the table so as not to over power the other flavors, which worked like magic. Will definitely return.

    We have enjoyed this restaurant for many years and were surprised to find that it is now under new ownership. We were very happy to see the menu is mostly the same, and many of the wait staff have stayed on to provide the same great service as before. We had several friends in our group who had not been to an Indian restaurant in many years, fearing overly spicy food. We let the waiter know about their apprehensions and he selected a great mix of spicy and mild dishes for everyone to enjoy. Another memorable night at Indian Oven. :)

    A group of four friends met up for a midweek evening meal and Indian Oven made it a perfectly delivered experience. Our meals, each different, were excellent, service as well, and the ambience is beautiful and low-key. Prices are quite fair and it is clear that this little gem of Columbus takes great pride in their authenticity and quality. Thank you Indian Oven!

    The food was absolutely delicious, but do not eat there if you are in any kind of time crunch or have plans after. We had a 7pm reservation, and did not get our food until about 8:30pm. Entrees only, no apps or dessert ordered. We were missing a few items and the waiter was a little confused and brought the wrong item (peshwari naan, a sweet naan, instead of the plain buttered naan we ordered). When it was pointed out, he said but it’s naan, you ordered it. When I opened it to show him the difference, it seemed as if I was supposed to accept it as a substitute. He then took it to the kitchen to verify it was not the butter naan we ordered (it wasn’t). My husband ordered a second can of Diet Pepsi, and the waiter forgot until he was done with his dinner. Despite all of this, we did love the food, it was just a bummer to have to stop eating in the middle of the meal as we waited for the naan. We had our infant with us, and keeping him entertained for twice as long as we planned was a workout, but the other diners in our area praised how well behaved he was. Around the 2hr mark we just started packing up and my husband went up to pay rather than continuing to wait for the check as our son seemed about over it. They seemed a bit overwhelmed that night, so I hope they work out logistics, because the food was great.

    Our meals were excellent, with good service and a pleasant, clean, upscale environment. The food is high quality and moderately priced. Two of our party had the dinner special that evening, chicken roasted/served on the bone and it was wonderful. This restaurant is a solid mainstay of the city, so glad we get to enjoy it!
