I've been dining at the Clay Oven restaurant in Calgary for at least 12 years and have never been disappointed. Because I work in NE Calgary, it's a very convenient place for lunch. I usually go around 1 pm to ensure a table. The lunch buffet is delicious. The butter chicken and the naan bread are the best I've ever... More

We are a family that absolutely loves Indian food, and as such we try many different places. Clay Oven, recommended by friends of ours who were missionaries in Indian all their lives, is one of the very best we have come across yet. Like any place we find that ordering off the menu is better than buffet and this is... More

Went to Clay Oven with a Groupon. There were no other customers when we got there but it still took almost 40 minutes to have the entrees on our table. Naan was freshly baked and tasted really good. Butter Chicken was good but I've had it better. Lamb Vanderloo was just plain. The portions of Naan and rice were generous... More

This restaurant was near our airport hotel. The Indian food was top notch and the service was friendly and prompt. Most of the patrons appeared to be Indian which is another sign of good Indian cuisine.

As a British family we love hot spicy Indian/Pakistani food and to date this is the only restaurant that comes anywhere close to the standards we had come to expect in the UK. It may have taken us some time to find the Clay but having done so we never go anywhere else. Excellent food and service.

We went to the Clay Oven early on a Thursday evening. There was lots of room. The only problem we had was that one dish we wanted was not ready. The server suggested a different dish which was excellent. Overall we were very satisfied and full!

My wife and I started eating at the Clay Oven when we first moved to Calgary in 2004. We loved it. Then when we had kids, we stopped going, but kept doing takeout. We moved to Toronto in 2008, and have been trying many different Indian restaurants in Toronto, but have never found one that we like as much. It's... More

We were a bit tired of the hotel food and called for delivery. Everything was just as ordered. Nice flavors, good portions.
