The food is really nice. Nice enough that you can almost overlook the speed (slow at best) and quality (anywhere from disinterested to downright surly) of the service-- I've been back enough to realize that it's really not "off days" but just bad service. I'd recommend it as expensive (but basically appropriately priced since it's tasty) take-out, but wouldn't suggest eating there, unless you're willing to spend an hour of your time wondering what's taking them so long to get your order or check when the place isn't busy.

These people have much to learn about taking care of the customer. As you walk in the door, there is a cold, empty feel about the restaurant from 'the owner'. The prices are ridiculous and the attitude is inconceivable. The food taste fine but I ordered 3 different curry dishes and none of us could tell much difference between them. I was charged $5 for a cucumber salad and that was all it was.... a small plate of cucumber. I asked for some Nan to go with dinner and was charged $4 for 1 piece. The owner/server saw that we were done eating and ready to go but just glared at us. There was only one other customer in the restaurant at 6pm which tells a lot. Finally my boyfriend reached behind the counter to get a to go box and the owner got upset and gave us our bill. This is the first time in 20 years that I haven't tipped for food and service.

This is one of the best and authentic North Indian Cuisine in SE Portland I’ve ever tested in last two years. Especially the goat curry and the fish curry with tandoor roti are the must haves among many. The test is authentic, which could be customized with own preference as well. Ambiance is awesome. This is a must go place for the person who loves to test authentic Indian food.

My family and I love Indian food and this is our favorite Indian restaurant in Portland that we've tried. The owners have always been very nice and polite to us, and they have some of the best mango lassi I've had. I also love their rogan josh, aloo gobi, chicken makhanwala, saag paneer, and eggplant bhartha (although I can't say I've had a bad curry from them, and I've probably tried over half their menu). The wait's usually not bad depending on the time, which is also a big plus.

If you are looking for not just the authentic Indian cuisine but authentic Indian cuisine fit for Maharajas and Maharinis (rulers of the princely states that existed in Indian subcontinent before and during the British colonial rule), you can definitely find it at India Oven (and unlikely elsewhere). I travel all over the US for business and prefer to eat at an Indian place. I have not found a place like this up till now. I will give just two examples out of the menu to illustrate the difference between simply authentic and authentic plus superb. Chicken Biryani (with bones) one finds at regular Indian restaurants is authentic, but not good enough for the royal taste. Making it boneless is not sufficient either. At India Oven, you get this plus a healthy amount of raisins, almonds, cashews and other nuts. Plain salted Lassi (yoghurt shake, effective in beating the scorching Indian summer heat) would be authentic but, not good enough for the royal taste. At India Oven, you get it with a touch of freshly ground mint or freshly round dry roosted cumin seeds. The wife of the owner couple freshly prepares each dish, right behind the counter, in plain sight (not hidden behind kitchen doors), just as she would prepare it for her family, if she was back in India.

Unbelievably rude staff. I tried to call for takeout, and was hung up on by the 'owner'. The food is not bad, but treating customers that way is unacceptable with the number of restaurant choices out there. Will take my business elsewhere, until these folks learn the value of customer service.

Second time I've tried this place. First, my wife and I walked out because the waiter was rude (never did that before or since); that was for dinner. Now we tried for lunch (4 years later). Food was good, they were under staffed, but the thing that made it a bad experience was they played a prayer, for the 45 minutes we were there; instead of music, if it was a few minutes it would have been atmosphere, but this was awful, I asked if it could please be changed, it was not. I don't recommend this place, and I won't go back.
