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. Over the last several years, the Oven Restaurants has expanded to two other locations and added space to the lower level of the Haymarket location. Whether you enjoy the historic Haymarket atmosphere and relaxed vibe of the Cellar, the beautiful sunsets and outdoor patio of the Oven East, or you’re in Omaha for the night to try Himalayas, there are many ways to sample the cuisine of India!

    We ate outside, so the noise level was minimal. The service was quite slow getting started but excellent thereafter. The food could’ve been a bit hotter, but it was very tasty and the wine was very good and reasonably priced. Chicken Bhuna is always a favorite and was excellent once again.

    We had very slow, inattentive service. People on either side of us that arrived after us were served first. Our server didn’t check on us until we asked. Fortunately our meals were very good but slow service takes away from an anticipated good experience.

    2nd time trying Indian food, this location was way better than the downtown location in my opinion, in regard to food, service, and ambiance. Will definitely return!

    We thoroughly enjoyed our first visit. We’d heard it was as good as the Haymarket location and we were not disappointed. All the hits were on the menu,still perfectly executed. If this shop had open first, it would be our favorite.
