From the bustling streets of Candolim, one enters a courtyard with the cushion strewn colourful charpoys past the two lions adorning the gate. Welcome to Earthen Oven. With a leafy canopy throwing much needed shade during the day, the lanterns atop provide a calm serene ambience at night transporting one to a dessert camp in Rajasthan. Within the A/c section, the décor is muted and understated with earthy hues. Top favourites are the Sikhandari raan and the dal makhni. Do not leave without relishing a wide range of kababs and tandoor bites. For the vegetarians, try the aartees-e-aloo, goes well with cheese garlic naan. End the evening on a sweet note with the rabdi misi gulab jamun and thank us later.
Not sure why it exists. Food very basic. Not worth. May be an attraction for Russian guests. Music is Indian but good. Food totally avoidable
I do not like leaving bad reviews. Have been here a few times recently, the last time the service and food was very good. This time it wasn't, asked the server how big the most expensive mutton dish on the menu was, good for one person he told me, it was enormous at 1350 rupees plus tax it would have comfortably been enough for both my wife and myself. Why did he need to lie??? O.k. so we overpaid for the food as my wife then ordered a chicken dish for herself. This is where the service became intolerable, all of the waiters disappeared, I wanted another glass of wine, no one around to serve it, I ended up plcklng up my empty wine glass and going looking for a refill, at least six of them in the bar area chatting away, no one at the entrance to the restaurant to meet and greet no wonder the place was empty. Just along the road is a restaurant called Adelaide, this place is very busy from 6 o/c until it closes Professional owner well trained staff , the difference between a well run restaurant and a shambles, management at Earthen Oven need to retrain their staff.
We visited for dinner. The staff were courteous and welcoming. It was a muggy evening so we decided to sit inside in the air conditioning. Good food with an array of Tandoori Kababs, Breads & Biryani made the evening splendid. Of particular note was the Gosht Nihari which was excellent. There is live Langa Music outside on the patio. All in all a very enjoyable evening. Travellers are encouraged to visit and savour a Taste of North- West Indian Frontier Food.
You know this restaurant is good because many Indian visitors are using it too. My tikka was slightly undercooked and the chef was sent to the table to apologise. Local music and dancer perform for tourists.
When we arrived there was no host/hostess and we did not exactly know if we could just go sit or what, but there was a guy standing lighting candles (wearing a waiters uniform) completely ignoring us even when we spoke to him. So the night did not start off so great The waiters are quick and efficient, but it’s a bit too quick like they want u to finish there food in 10 minutes and not lounge and enjoy your meal. Overall the food was amazing I give them that.
