I ordered the Beef Meatball Curry & Chicken Bhuna. The flavor & spicing were great. Probably the best Indian food that I've had in San Antonio. The garlic naan was flavorful, but could have been a little crisper. But that's just my personal preference. If you like Indian food, I highly recommend that you try India Oven.

Arrived for a late lunch at 1:30pm. They are open and it is not a buffet. You order off a menu.I Ordered potato nan, and chicken tikka masala.Indian music in the background at a good volume.Metal utensils, cloth napkins, ceramic plates, and cloth tablecloths.Food took a bit to come out but that is a good sign as it is cooked when ordered and not off a buffet line.My food came out smelling wonderful.My meal was serious delicious!The rice, chicken and the nan were all outstanding!I would definitely recommend them.

I've ordered 30min before closing (which I didn't knew while ordering )and the staff didn't call me as soon as they received the order but called 10min before closing informing the same and said it will open again at 5pm. I don't know if I should eat my lunch at 5??? I should have atleast called before or shouldn't have accepted the order or said that they can wait till I reach... they did nothing. They kept my order at a table and redirect me to pickup that without courtesy of wishing me or handing over the package to me. Pathetic experience.I will never visit again. Lesson learnt.Ordered spicy food but got blunt non spicy food with no salt, uncooked breads, uncooked rice.

Called at 7P to order takeout dinner for the family. We ordered the appetizer sampler, the Royal dinner and Baingan Bhartha (an eggplant entree). We were told it would be ready in 30 minutes. I thought that seemed like a reasonable time to ensure everything would be made fresh.... boy was I wrong. Everything on the sampler platter looked and tasted as though it had been cooked hours ago - like leftover lunch items. The eggplant dish, which one would think should be relatively healthy, was swimming in an oily/greasy stew. It was absolutely disgusting. Won't be patronizing this place ever again, my suggestion is you stay away too. Yuck.

I want to put 1 star because we went to India Oven in January 2020 and I can't stop thinking about the gulab jamun 8 months later. It was like eating a cloud. I've tried gulab jamun at other restaurants at home in Alberta but it's not the same. Everywhere I try it I get my hopes up and every time they are dashed. I will never find another gulab jamun like at India Oven. I am so salty. I live in Alberta in the covid pandemic, there is no way I can go back to San Antonio to experience this glory again. Damn you, India Oven. How very dare you. Do you deliver to Canada?

I would give this place a 10 if I could, my wife and I love the chicken tiki marsala she gets hers medium spicy and I like mine without the spice. I can't even count how many times we have ordered from there, its so wonderful, and made fresh to order, it also lasts for days in the fridge if you bag the rice. I order extra for the weeknights. This is the only Indian restaurant I will eat at. Really love these guys, the service is amazing, and I want to make sure they survive the Covid thing we'd be heartbroken if they closed. You won't be disappointed! Try it

Food is okay, Menu is extremely expensive! Nothing worth $16 for lunch buffet on Thanksgiving! Hospitality is very poor. No greetings! No smile!. They should learn customer service and and hospitality. Staff should learn how to smile and treat customers equally. Grow up buddies!!! Good luck for your business!!

Review №19

For lunch or dinner, this place is fantastic! And dining is an experience, with white tablecloths and beautifully neat flatware. Tables are a bit crowded, but it didn't detract from my meal. I've been a customer for 4+ years, and the quality is consistent. I definitely recommend!

I am super disappointed

Ordered curbside since the dining room is closed because of covid. I pulled up and as I was figuring out how to get my food someone ran out with my food. Everything was piping hot and correct. When I got it home it was delicious. The chicken kofta was shared with my 6 year old and I heard no complaints about the spice level as he has with other dishes in the past. It was so flavorful I didn't miss the heat. I can't wait to order from here again!

The servicers in this restaurant are not professional. for instance, they on their phones all the day and do not care about customers.Also, they have solid face and do not smile ever. moreover, their eating plates are not clean as well as their water. Otherwisr, the food is very teaste

Review №35

Update. I can't believe it's been 4 months since I've been here! All the old favorites plus some new offerings. I'm in a food coma! (pic of plate 1 included)Once again, I love the buffet! They may not have a tremendous number of choices (as one reviewer complained), but I couldn't begin to have everything they do offer in one sitting. I have also noticed slight variations in different visits without completely changing out the menu. This is across town for me, so I only eat here every few months. (I wish the same people would have a restaurant in the NE suburbs!)

This place is always amazing. It doesn't matter if you get the buffet which has a great selection or order off the menu. Chicken Curry is always great and a great selection of Naan. Eat here at least twice a month and it's never let me down. Consistently great.

Food was excellent and definitely with fighting the 5 o'clock traffic. This is the best Indian restaurant I've been to in San Antonio. Staff were not overly friendly and didn't seem too interested in explaining the dishes. However, they were attentive and efficient. Just not a welcoming atmosphere. However the food is amazing

Average indian food. Servers there are really very casual and do not expect a good service from them. Service is very very slow and you will have to wait a long time to get your food. I will not recommend this place to anyone.

I can't believe I'll have to write something bad about this restaurant. Long story short this was one of my favorite restaurants since I came here. Everything was going well till one day we had a problem with one of the servers, since then everything change they star treating us like we ask for free food we try to ignored. Every monday we use to go there with my family but yesterday they give us the worst costumer service that you can imagine. I'm really sad, because I had no problem with the food but yesterday we couldn't take it anymore we just got out of the restaurant and decided to not come back anymore

Good food, but service was lacking. Most employees are playing on their phones instead of noticing that most of their tables are full of customers complaining to each other about the service. Don't think I'll be coming back anytime soon after that experience. Such a shame considering how good the food is .

This place has ALWAYS had the best indian cuisine in San Antonio. They even have a buffet for lunch so you can try several dishes for one great price. I make it a point to go at least once per month. You won't be disappointed!

A great place with plenty of options on the full menu, but it's the buffet lunch that's the standout for me. Always plenty of options and a lot of variety day to day. Not the cheapest, but fairly priced since it's all you can eat. Come hungry!

I loved this place. The food was great. I had the vegetables Samosa, Garlic naan and butter chicken. All of it was delicious, fresh and hot. It's definitely authentic. When you are seated they put this chips and 2 sauces that are good on your table. Only reason I didn't give it 5 stars was because my waiter disappeared a few times and I had to waive it down. Overall I'll definitely go back!

Good food, the buffet was lacking a little more diversity. I expected more of a spread for a buffet but what they did have was very good. Everything was tasty and I would probably go back again. However, I have been to better tasting locations. Good option for your Indian food craving.

Review №65

I first tried this restaurant on Christmas Eve with my family. To say that we all like Indian cuisine is probably the biggest understatement of the year, so I was a bit nervous despite the high ratings. Fortunately, we were in no way disappointed! The food is fantastic and the staff is very attentive, but not intrusive. The chai tea is delicious and the refills are free. The decor is very pleasant and themed well. Even with the restaurant being busy, it wasn't too loud.My husband and I returned to the restaurant on our own and were still so happy with the food and experience! I ordered the vegetarian dinner special, which is $14.99 and was so impressed with the food choices as well as amazed by the amount of food that comes for such an affordable price! I received a samosa as an appetizer, rice, naan, some yogurt sauce, and three different dishes in generous portions as the main course, and a bowl of Indian rice pudding for dessert. The food was extremely hot when we received it as well as my tea (original cup and refills), which is really important to me and the waiter attending to our table was very prompt to clear used dishes and attend to our needs.Obviously, this is a fantastic vegetarian friendly restaurant and is very affordable. Bottom line--I completely recommend this place!

One of my favorite restaurants for Indian food. Buffet kept fresh and well stocked with delicious dishes for vegans and carnivores alike. Veggies are not over cooked. Sauces and spices enhance rather than over power. Decor is pretty and sparkly. Courteous service. A menu of specialty items available. An all round pleasant dining experience.

The below average and highly over rated Indian restaurant in San Antonio. We went to this place by checking the reviews on google and yelp but the reviews are a sham.We were visiting the nearby water park with our friends and were really hungry after the that.We ordered the following vegetarian options:1. Gobli Manchurian - the worst gobi Manchurian of our life. The dish was deep fried in high flame and tastes ok2. Dal Tadka - An ok yellow daal. We had to put lots of lemon juice to neutralize the taste.3. Paneer Makhani - the better part of the menu which made this restaurant 1 star eligible.4. Breads - the breads were the crispy and well done but the garlic naan has too much garlic.Our friends ordered non vegetarian options:1. Lamb Biryani - As per them, it was not a biryani and it was served as pulao. There was nothing close to biryani to this dish.2. Chicken Korma - This dish was bland.Overall a disastrous experience and people should avoid this place at all cost!!!

I've been coming here for years. I always think the last visit was better than the one before. It's true. Just like my Sunday buffet lunch. Colorful flavored food displayed at the right temperature. Tender, delicious Tandoori chicken. Succulent goat curry. Love the garlic naan! Dipping in the Madras soup is one of my favorites. Love the sauces and the option of adding spicy chili to my selections. Plus the staff is very attentive for a buffet service. We always tip them as if we had ordered from the menu.

Review №89

If you enjoy trying new foods then this is the place to come to. I apologize for not knowing the names of the food but everything we tried was tender and well seasoned. The naan bread was fresh and tasted great. I found myself getting the tandoori chicken bites every time I went for another plate. We will definitely be coming back to this location and I promise I will take pictures of the food (and names) to post before I devour it. Thank you to the owners and staff for making sure our waters were full.

Got a medium spicy chicken curry but end of getting 9/10 spicy curry . Taste of curry was not bad beside needing two bottle of water during my 20 min struggle with that spicy food but still 4/5 star for the food . 2 star goes to the server as I got a 2 got order which should have those fork, spoon while giving out the food . I was kinda staying in San Antino for 3 days cuz of work . Here is my story , got samsosa ready and ready to dig in my curry and rice but there is no freaking spoon/knife . Had to got all the down on to breakfast lounge and end of getting some spoon . But seriously what kind of Indian restaurant serves to go curries without a spoon to have those curry . I mean do you all think people will be like oh no spoon ok let's use my hands . Really disappointed at the servers .
