We had family visiting during the holidays and needed a place that had many vegetarian and seafood items. This was recomended and we had a delicious dinner. We had two orders of Samosas (to serve 4), and they were VERY good, and not spicy hot. They are fried, so some might shy away and try another... read more

I've never been a big fan of Indian food but I went because the wife likes it. Thankfully, I went with her. The food and service was good and it has a nice atmosphere with excellent parking. The best thing about this place is the bar as its well stocked.

Searched for a place nearby to have lunch. This name popped up and I thought of a burger. To my surprise and dining joy found very good Indian food! I had a chicken tikka marsala dish and my husband salmon tandori. Both of were pleased with the food and service. The portions were very generous and my husband enjoyed the... More

This restaurant is absolutely first class. With their generous yet affordable faire, they really stand out from the crowd. The cuisine is Tandoori style, but varied and well prepared. If you need a sampler to see what you like, try the Traditional Thali. My personal favorites are the Aloo Gobi and Chicken Saag, all served with their freshly baked Naan.... More

Food, including the combination Naan bread option, was hot (stove hot) and appeared to be made to order. While the food certainly had plenty of the spiciness associated with India's cuisine it wasn't that overpowering, cloying curry taste and smell that I and many of my dining companions, other than the most ardent of curry lovers, have found in the...

We consistently enjoy what is fast becoming a local favorite. We have eaten here numerous times since its opening and found the food to be excellent. If you enjoy Indian/Punjabi food, this is a great choice.

Overall this restaurant got great reviews so we decided to visit since we always appreciate good Indian food. Well, Clay Oven was a bit of a letdown. Service was good but slow. Waitresses were very courteous and atmosphere was great and very quiet, however food takes a while to arrive. The restaurant is at a remote area, no scenery and... More

The chef doesn't know how to cook Indian cuisine! I ordered Chicken Kebab and what i got was grilled hard chicken breast pieces! Their chef's special Chicken Methi was another big big disappointment. Ordered butter naan and they served plain naan with some butter! I mean are you kidding me! And the waiter said that's what they serve always! We... More

This was our first visit and all was special. A very friendly staff, great menu selections,nice portions(brought home enough for lunch), local draft beer and good value. The medium spice might be to much but not over powering. Be adventurous and share. You will return.
