Indian Oven Restaurant

This popular Indian restaurant is always packed and loud. The North Indian cuisine will be familiar to anyone who has had Indian cuisine before, but the spicing and preparation really make the food here stand out. Try the Bombay Pakora, batter-fried calamari, to start. Creamy Murg Masala is a delightful chicken entree. Several of the vegetarian dishes at Indian Oven, like the simple, satisfying sabji, are not often found in Indian restaurants in America, even though they're basic home cooking in Punjab. Try the elaborate breads such as naan stuffed with goat cheese, green onions and peppers or spinach paratha.
