We had first take away from Clay oven tonight and none of the 3 dishes was satisfying. Saag paneer was glue like consistency and tasteless, - I've never had saag paneer strange like this. This is normally my favorite Indian dish and I have never been disappointed with it till tonight. Other two dishes were average, so I would not... More

I could only put down which month I visited. In fact for the 10 years I lived in Cowtown I would probably go to Clay Oven up to 4-6 times per month. The Butter Chicken is a world best! If you go to Calgary, it's a must! Probably the best curry in the world and the best lunch buffet!!

Looking for a variety of Curries or the Best Butter Chicken ever? Try out the Clay Oven in Calgary. Generous portions of Curry and Basmati Rice and Naan bread or Parathas. Small restaurant with big attitude on service. Reserve ahead and enjoy the cuisine.

My wife and I were going for lunch at another restaurant quite near the Clay Oven but it was closed. Having been to the Clay Oven for dinner once before and remembering that it was very good we decided to go there for lunch. Unfortunately, it turned out to be very disappointing. The buffet choices were very limited and there... More

The buffet is $13 and seems rather expensive for a small buffet but its was well worth it. The butter chicken is to die for and the naan was always fresh and hot. Best butter check I've ever had in my life. All the dishes were super hot and not left to get cold like many other buffets. The server... More

This is one of my regular (monthly) eatery spots. I generally have the lunchtime buffet - and zero in on the butter chicken. For the most part, the offerings are quite good - and it shows with the standing-room-only lunchtime crowd of regulars. The "heat" of some of the spicier dishes does vary, though; I think it depends on who's... More

The service was great and the food was very good, If it wasnt a 30 minute drive I would go all the time. Our waitress was pregnant it was her day off but she loves working there so much she asked to come in that day, that says something.

We've been to India twice, and this is the closest we've come to finding food that reflects the spicing and flavours we found there. Garlic Naans are soft and warm; fish pakoras are amazingly tender; Beef Gosht is deliciously spicy and the Vindaloo is spicy of course, not just hot. A meal for a family of four costs ~$120 (especially... More

We will definitely be back for the butter chicken and more! The food was the best Indian cuisine I have ever tasted. We ordered the butter chicken, tandoori chicken with vegetables, saag paneer, naan bread, and vegetable samosas. All of it was delicious and filling. It was fresh tasting and not at all too heavy or greasy like some Indian... More
