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!

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.

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.
