Great location - pretty interior-nice outside patio but overpriced for what you get

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... read 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

We eat a lot of Indian food, and there is a lot of it in Denver, but we had never been to this restaurant until this week. This is now our new favorite. We went with friends, and all six of us enjoyed our dinners, but I LOVED mine: the Goan seafood curry with black tiger shrimp. This is a... More

We usually enjoy the buffet when dining hear. We arrived for a late lunch, 1:30pm and the buffet food was poorly maintained and many items we had to scrape off the bottom of the chaffing dish. We will reconsider if we will return.

It was fun to dine with the whole Indian experience. Shoes off, sitting on cushions and eating what felt like authentic fare, especially their naan to clean it all up. Lots of flavor, good portions and attentive service, but the price seemed steep, even if we were in Cherry Creek. Enjoy!
