The service was friendly, the food was fantastic, a little pricey, but will definitely go again. Very small restaurant, so check ahead for a group.

Three of us enjoyed India Oven for an after-movie dinner. Very courteous and helpful staff made us feel welcome and ensured the kitchen knew how spicy we wanted our food to be. Center-of-the-room tables are close together but table top items are strategically placed to maximize privacy. The onion stuffed naan was hot and tasty. I'd order the Mango Lamb... More

India Oven is a small restaurant located just off Hwy 111 in Cathedral City. The cuisine was delicious and the waitstaff very courteous. It offers set menus as well as ala carte. A little pricy but worth it.

Located in a strip mall. Basic ambiance with several booths and tables. Food is average. If you want Indian food in the Coachella Valley, there are few options and this one is about par for the course. Cannot compare to what we have in the Washington, DC area..

Never been disappointed with meals here, lunch or dinner. Great naan. Fresh ingredients. Spices just right or to your taste. Attentive service. Intimate atmosphere.

If you fancy good authentic indian cuisine, this is the place to come. Inexpensive and copious, full of taste and real spices, every dish is great to share with friends! I tried the vegetarian dinner platter and couldn't even finish it because it was huuuuge! Special mention to the garlic naan… We also shared some onion bahjis and spinached prawns,... More

Indian cuisine is one of my favorites. I seek it wherever I visit or live. That being said I was very excited to try a local restaurant with great reviews. I was greeted by a very nice gentleman who offered a menu and water to drink while I decided on my meal. I ordered Mango Chicken and lamb pasanda newabi,... More
