Awesome Buffet – Pros:
Great Buffet. Lots of Variety. Friendly and attentive wait staff. Great value for lunch.
Hidden location, attracts occasionally white trash (maybe its just Denver), and parking sometimes.
Insect Central!! Where are the Health Inspectors? – I tried this place a few months ago & found an insect in the bathroom. Since the food was tasty, we thought we'd give it another try. Last night, I found an insect in the hallway after exiting the bathroom, informed an employee who just shrugged his shoulders. There will no be another next time.
Should have been charged for extra protein? – We arrived at India Oven around 8:30 PM. We were seated promptly. We had a party of four and ordered: Shrimp Makhani, Shrimp Masala, Chicken Tikka Masala, Yak Thali, Garlic Naan, Cheese Naan, 3 ice teas and a coke. The food here is very good. During the meal my girlfriend went into the women?s restroom and noticed insects. Later my friend found an insect floating in his ice tea. We informed our waiter and all he did was brought another ice tea out for my friend. He didn?t offer taking the ice tea off the bill or anything. As we were leaving I approached the manager to talk to him. He asked me what he could do for me. I told him about the ice tea and then he stood there with no comment and offered nothing to rectify the situation.
Go to Little India instead – I don't know where to start! The restroom was disgusting, the waiter barely spoke any English and brought us the wrong wines, and the food was so-so at best. The nan was cold.
Skip This Restaurant – I don't know how they did but they even made horrible onion kulcha. No wonder I never see that many people at this restaurant. Skip this restaurant. Try the Nepal Restaurant and Bar up in Louisville, Great Indian and Nepalase food!
Inspires Cravings – First let me say that I don't know a lot about Indian food, I just know that I love the food at Indian Oven. The sauces are very flavorable and memorable, and the meats are tender. Great naan. The service was pleasant, unlike the service I encountered at India's in Tamarac Square several years ago. The atmosphere is also very nice. When I am reminded of this restaurant, I always want to go back. If you are unfamiliar with Indian cuisine, this is a great place to start! Try it!
A real find!!! – This is Yak&Yeti (fabulous Indian restaurant in Westminster)'s sister restaurant, I believe. I was turned on to this place from the Y&Y owner, and love it! The food is wonderful...though they seem to think I can't handle the hot food because I haven't really experienced anything really spicy yet. The buffet is just scrumptiously delightful. Be sure to have some chai, and order the chicken masala! Great vegetarian dishes too!
A restaurant experience you can do without! – We arrived at the restaurant at 7:30 on Saturday. It was quite busy, which seemed to obviously overwhelm the staff. We ordered Daal soup, Biriani and a combination platter. The server did not bother to provide napkins or silverware. They just dropped the appetizer at our table and only after several futile attempts we were able to get their attention to provide the silverware. The Daal and Biriani arrived after a long delay. They were totally tasteless. The Daal did not have any flavor and the Biriani had nothing to do with any Biriani we have had before. It was basically soggy rice with no Biriani spices.
We kept waiting almost another 30 minutes for the combination platter hoping it would make up for the awful food so far, only to find out that they forgot to place the order and we would have to wait another half hour. At that point we decided it was waste of time to wait since the experience has so far been so poor. Therefore we left, never to return.
We are frequent patrons at Indian restaurant and this one is not even in the same league as an average one. It was almost comical to watch other diners having all kinds of problems, either getting the wrong food or being unhappy with what they were served. I cannot imagine a restaurant like this staying in business if they do not dramatically improve both their service and their food.
One of the best buffets in town, most extensive. Got to try several new dishes including an interesting seet potato massala. Great samosas. Almost everything was great, fresh and good flavor. Daal was the only disappointment-ok, but not very flavorful. The staff was great and very friendly. Will definitely be back.
