Indian
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 hit a bad evening at The Oven. Soup was lukewarm and entree and sauce were cold. Chicken tikka was very tender however. Did not complain due to enjoying the evening with friends. The korma sauce we received as a side was watered down and cold and it is one of our regular sides so they were just off that day.

    .Ambiance at the east location is just fair compared to the Hay Market location. But, Food and drink options were plentiful and good.
