The waitstaff at Indian Oven have been known to recommend just the right dish to those unfamiliar with Indian cuisine, even arranging sampler plates from their lunch buffet as a culinary introduction. Regardless of a diner's level of experience with Indian cuisine, though, it's easy to find enjoyable flavors on the restaurant's menu.

Guests can alternate bites with sips of sweet, milky Indian–style coffee or creamy mango lassi.
