My wife and I were introduced to Indian food by a neighbor now friend. They had spent several years in London and found the Indian food much better than local food. We started trying various Indian restaurants. We eventually found India

I am an Indian and a food lover. I have lived all around in India and have a good sense of how various indian cuisine is supposed to taste. This restaurant is a total rip-off. I visited this restaurant in last-week Nov 2009.
They do not even know how to make a daal (lentil soup) - which is one of easiest thing to make. I am no cook and I can make better daal than them. Everything is very very expensive and yet taste pathetic (not even close to how Indian food is supposed to taste). Stay away from this place.

Pros: None

Cons: Poor food, Very Pricey

Very very sick after eating here. Second time. I finally spoke to the owner about it a few days later and he not only refused to apologize but told me he has plenty of customers and he doesn't need me!! Whew. What a place. I think they use pesticides to marinate their tandoori chicken.

Pros: In Vegas

Cons: Sick Owners like their Customers

The Reviews here are from a long way back.

I visited the India Oven recently. I found the service to be excellent & the food very good. We ordered off the menu & it all tasted like it was supposed too! (unlike India Palace!) I certainly will be going back there for my Indian meals. Everything is reasonably priced.

You must be kidding. Value?? $4.50 for a garlic naan! $3 for an ordinary naan (sorry, 5 cents less than $3). A simple Daal (lentils) for $13! And they do not even provide complementary rice with the entrees, that go as high as $25 for lamp chop masala (simply "mince meat" or "kheema" in most places)! And what is with those hostile signs so typical of some Indian businesses --- "We reserve the right to refuse Service to Anyone" "No shirt, no shoes, no Service." That is always your right on your property, there is no need to rub that in. It is rude. And this new sign that I saw there: "Any one over 5 years old will be charged full price for buffet." Since when has a 5 year old become an adult? Have some kindness/courtesy to kids at least --- their stomachs are too small for you to charge $20 for what they put into it typically. Greedy businessmen.

Pros: Las Vegas

Cons: greedy and rude

We waited 40 minutes to be seated --- and that is actually a good sign that the place is popular. We ordered food and waited with keen anticipation. The Paneer Pakoras arrived --- 5-6 pieces in all. OK. My wife and I grabbed a piece each and put our teeth into it. It was well-spiced and warm outside --- but inside it was hard and stone-cold. They clearly prepare their food ages ago, even pakoras (appetizers!), store it in the freezer and reheat it on being ordered by a guest. In my case, they had obviously just dropped these from the freezer into hot oil (not even a microwave) and since it was a busy evening, they pulled it out too quickly and the cat was out of the bag. The culminating piece of ridicule was they took it away and brought back a plate of THREE, not SIX pieces (re-re-heated). They were clearly telling us, that we had somehow either swallowed or regurgitated two pieces and broken one, so they only got back three reusable (reheatable) pieces, so that is what they just reheated a little more and brought them right back. In my case, they clearly re-reheated the Paneer Pakoras from our plates in a big bath of hot oil --- which is used to deep fry a whole lot of stuff the same evening. Total sharing experience I guess.

Pros: Close to The Strip

Cons: Exorbitant ($4.50 per garlic naan), reheated frozen food, next to a seedy Massage Parlor (family avoid)

We just got back from this place and are truly shocked. We have eaten here years ago and the food was good. Today we waited 40 minutes to be seated --- and that is actually a good sign that the place is popular. We ordered food and waited with keen anticipation. The Paneer Pakoras arrived --- 6 pieces in all. OK. My wife and I grabbed a piece each and put our teeth into it. It was well-spiced and warm outside --- but inside it was hard and stone-cold. It didn't take Einstein to figure out that they prepare their food ages ago, even pakoras (appetizers), store it in the freezer and reheat it on being ordered by a guest. In my case, they had obviously just dropped these from the freezer into hot oil (not even a microwave) and since it was a busy evening, they pulled it out too quickly and the cat was out of the bag. We called the owner and he started expressing total surprise. So I broke another piece and put his finger on the inside paneer, and then he stopped arguing -- it really was hard and stone cold. Still we were being tolerant. But the culminating piece of ridicule was they took it away and brought back a plate of THREE, not SIX pieces. They were clearly telling us, that we had somehow either swallowed or spit out two pieces and broken one, so they only got back three reusable (reheatable) pieces, so that is what they just reheated a little more and brought them right back. Not a trace of shame or pride. We walked out, and still not a word of "sorry" from either of the two owners, who were pretending they hadn't noticed (I was loud believe me, even walked up to the old m,an and toild him, to no avail). They really couldn't care less, BECAUSE they had a line of eager people waiting to be served reheated food. WSo why bother about a few bad eggs (like me) who demand normal service and courtesy? I will never go back there, never recommend a friend (just my old Boss). Long ago I remember, both Pasta Pomodoro and California Pizza Kitchen didn't charge us because they simply brought some food/appetizer a little too late (and we did not even need to complain).That is honorable. But India Oven needs to be taught a lesson. Question is, if they do not respect their customers one bit, will they at least stop from serving you food even that left on someones' used plates? Take a guess.

The naan here is amazing, it is soft and freshly baked even during the lunch buffet.
The restaurant is clean, even the bathrooms, which is wonderful considering how busy it is.
The food off the a la carte menu is okay though the portions are a bit small. The buffet is little and pretty good, though not of very good quality.
I think my biggest complaint is that this restaurant isn't consistent.

This is one of the best Indian reasaurants in the valley. They have been around for a long time and the place is run by a real nice Indian family. The nan is some of the best around. Sauces are not as Americanized as a lot of other Indian places in Vegas. The spinach and lamb dish is always wonderful. Though I am not usually a fan of buffets, this one (lunch only) is an execption....really good. For you tourists out there, this place is just east of the Strip on the corner of Paradice and Sahara.

Pros: friendly staff, just off the strip

Cons: mmmmm they're not my next door neighbor :o)

Each time I go to India Oven the food gets better and better. Service is a little slow but the food is what I go for.
