Food was only ok; service was decent

had a bunch of vegetarian dishes with family. Stick to north indian dishes as dosa was not very good.. Matar Paneer was quite good. Other dishes were average at best. Service was excellent though!

This is a unique place to eat. The decor is different from many of the Indian restaurants I have eaten at in the past. They have live music the night we were there. They also have these booths along the one wall that look like they provide a more private dinning experience. I would suggest reservations, because this place gets... More

I have an iron stomach, and yet I got sick. Won't go back unfortunately. We love Indian, but it was disappointing.

I have one word that expresses what I felt about my meal at this long running establishment. UNDERWHELMING. The wait staff inaccurately conveyed the menu, I was never offered more naan, and I asked for water without ice and got water with ice. The meat tasted like it was added to the sauce...vrs a sauce that hints of lamb because... More

We tried this Indian restaurant in the Cherry Creek District for dinner recently. It was a balmy evening and they have an inviting outdoor patio, so we sat out there. There was also a live string instrumentalist; it was a Saturday night. That was a good choice for seating. From there it was mostly downhill. The service was excruciatingly slow,... More

We love the buffet here and recommend it heartily to anyone looking for good Indian food in Denver. All menu items are fairly priced, the food is always fresh, and the buffet includes meat entrees (not always a given for Indian restaurants today).

This is an updated review of a restaurant we've been to numerous times. Though the circumstances of our last several visits have always been the same: We're in Cherry Creek for the annual 4th of July Arts Festival to listen to music and wander around looking at the exhibits. As the fast food scene isn't what we're prefer to eat,... More

My Husband and I went to Bombay Clay Oven on a dinner date on 6/13/15. I ordered a spicy dish with chicken. Almost half way through my dish I bit into a bad piece of chicken. I immediately spit it into my napkin and notified the waiter. The waiter apologized and asked why I thought the chicken was bad and... More
