Good Indian food

This restaurant is tucked away in a plaza across from some airport hotels, which is really convenient. I liked the food - as an East Indian, I didn't find it to be the best food I'd had but it was good. Unfortunately, the eggplant we ordered seemed to have a burnt taste. The other food was good... read more

I love spicy food, but it has to have flavour accompanying the heat element. This place is awesome! I make what I believe to be a killer dahl, in that it is Portuguese in origin, a little different from a traditional Indian dahl in composition. Most Indian dahls leave me a little wanting: not this one ~ I asked for... More

Driving from Sparwood BC to the Calgary Airport, we stopped at this restaurant, a small family run restaurant with tasteful décor. We ordered some typical vegetarian and non-vegetarian dishes with rice and nans. The nans were excellent and mutton curry dish was very flavorful. The butter chicken was so so. It had very red gravy instead of usual yellowish creamy... More

went to clay oven for the first time a couple of months ago. Both my husband and \i were really impressed with the service and the food was excellent. The naan just melts in your mouth. Going back again today for the second time and hope to enjoy.

Been coming here for many years now and the quality of food and customer service is always impeccable. This is our family's favorite indian restaurant by far in Calgary (and we have pretty much tried all of them)

Best indian food I've had in Calgary and service was excellent! The meal we ordered was full of flavour and piping hot. Butter chicken melted in my mouth. Can't wait to go back.

I went there for buffet, few items were not available and they said that very rudely. One lady was showing unnecessary attitude and making faces like a bch. She served water like throwing water on someone. I must say if you have any self respect then don't go there. Food quality was worst.

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
