One location in Lincoln.

The Lincoln eatery has a Yelp rating of 4 stars out of 5.

A Yelp review:

Great place. Good breakfast, bottomless coffee cup and priced right. I've mainly eaten here for breakfast but have tried lunch a couple of times. Good but breakfast better. Which is served all day.

I recommend.


Two locations in Lincoln.

The Haymarket location has a Yelp rating of 4 stars out of 5.

A Yelp review:

Do NOT let your friends scare you, they have tons of delicious NON SPICY foods.  I LOVE Indian food, and the Oven does not disappoint.  That said, they also have lots of spicy foods too. The servers know their food and can make great recommendations if you have an aversion to spicy or milk etc.  Let them guide you if you don't know your way around Indian food.

The Oven has the most amazing  Mulligatawny Soup, it really is a must try.  Interestingly enough I found that Zoup in Lincoln also has a  Mulligatawny soup which is sort of similar but different.  Both are good in their own right.    I usually order the  Lamb Vindaloo which is probably my favorite dish.

This place is really worth visiting and its location in the Haymarket area and 2 blocks away from Pinnacle Bank Arena make it a great spot for dinner before a show.
