Very tasty!

Food is VERY tasty! Never underestimate a clay over, my friends. They keep the juices in and want to make you come back for more. Trust me, give it a shot, you won't regret it. Great service too!

OMG! hadn't been to the Clay Oven for ages, but it didn't take long to realize what we had been missing! The food is absolute perfection, the taste and freshness are unbeatable and the awesome service sums it up. Been to lots of Indian restaurants and the Clay Oven is simply the best in every way. Can't wait to go... More

This restaurant had the best Indian food I've ever had, and I've had lots! The curries were so flavorful and the nan bread was cooked to perfection. Service was great and had a great atmosphere. It is a bit tucked away but worth the trip!

I've been here for lunch a few times now - always arriving at opening time (11:30am) and getting down to business before the crowds come in. The selection is small, but the food is fantastic. I'm particularly fond of their beautifully baked naans and the very tender and juicy tandoori chicken. The lentil and chickpea dishes are just smart eating... More

The Clay Oven is the best Indian Restaurant in Calgary. It is intimate, clean and has the most intoxicating aromas of food wafting in the air. We have been eating here for ten years. Everything from the homemade, hot Naan to the chilled glasses for your Kingfisher beer and the delicious homemade food is amazing !

Have ordered out here a couple of time and recently dined-in too. There is not a lot to say here, the food is the standard selection you'd expect at an Indian restaurant. Spice levels are accurate, which doesn't happen much - i.e. beware if you usually have to order things 'extra hot' just to make them 'reasonably hot'. This time... More

A small family run restaurant with a vibe to match, the Clay Oven is a pleasant place for a nice meal. The only down side is its size and location, but the food makes up for it. A detailed review follows: Ambience – while it does have a great ‘family’ feel to it, it is quite small inside. The tables... More

I visited this place a couple times having order a couple appetizers which were above average but not excellent, notably the aloo parentha and aloo tikki. These are staple indian foods you just can't go wrong with. I then ordered Shahi paneer and tandoori chicken one evening. The Shahi paneeris a preparation of paneer in a thick gravy made up... More

I am not going to suggest this is going to happen to you, but if visiting the Clay Oven you might mention that you were referred by the recipient of a meal "on the house". I literally have dined in thousands of restaurants, and I was trying to recall if this has ever happened to me ever before, and I... More
