"We've been to India Oven many times, and it was well worth the trip. Delicious food, great service. But this last dinner was a huge disappointment. Had to wait a full hour for anything to eat. And when our appetizers finally arrived, the dinner also arrived about 2 minutes later. They had TWO beers to offer; all others on the menu were n/a. Some pieces of chicken and lamb were inedible, no exaggerating.
This was NOT AT ALL the experience from previous visits. They were simply overwhelmed, and the kind waiter was very apologetic. I still will not risk it and go back. Even for their fantastic chai tea.

"A great restaurant, and I can be picky about Indian. My first visit was for business (a party of 5); second visit was my wife and me. Both times, the food was amazing and we were made to feel very welcome.
One dish was ordered both nights - Baingan Bharta. It was smokey and flavored with ginger. Very enjoyable. It was also easy to modify a dish to your tastes.
P.S. They did a great deal of take-away. Another good sign of very good food."

"Took my GF here. Several times they asked if we wanted wine and she said on glass for herself. They kept asking me. Also they would not listen her her. A bit too "traditional" if you ask me. Also tried to charge us for extra wine we didn't order. They are nice, and food is good, but would look elsewhere."
