Nothing horrible-nothing great. Don't I wish someone could modernize, upscale and fusion-ize Indian food?! It's all predicable but acceptable. My kids love it. Sitting shoes off in the booths is fun for them. Respectable option if you have the fix but nothing terribly inspiring. It doesn't help that my mom can make all this stuff and make it 10 times...

Ok so perhaps our mistake but I ordered a lamb korma ,rice and garlic nan, mango lassie, so my question is the meal was nicely presented but flavor was lacking,... More

We love Indian food, but this place is in the pretentious , high rent district of Cherry Creek. Cherry Creek area reeks with arrogance and snobbery. We do NOT like the people nor the area ! Bombay Clay oven is no exeception. It is over priced and not good. Cherry Creek is the kind of area that is ruining Denver,... More

We happened to be in Denver for the weekend, and wanted some Indian food. This was in Cherry Creek and convenient to where we were. I didn't think much about the place upon entering, but I was surprised again and again. GET A COVERED BOOTH!!!! I forget what they called them, but they converted the booth into a kneeling table,...

My wife and I ate here for lunch on a weekday this week while visiting Denver, being hungry for some flavorful Indian food. The menu offered a nice variety and prices were comparable to what we have seen in other Indian restaurants. We chose the noon buffet, which was very reasonably priced. The buffet was modest, somewhat fewer choices than... More

I ate lunch here earlier this month while in town on business. The food is average Indian cuisine, but it is pricey. I didn't eat from the buffet but rather ordered a la carte with a Groupon that I had. They should probably charge 25% lower prices for the quality of their food.

We throughly loved the flavorful... More

A friend from the area suggested we meet him for lunch before we fly out so my wife and I met him. Having never had Indian food before I didn't know what to expect. He suggested the buffet for the variety. It was great he knew what dishes were what (spicy, sweet, what the ingredients were ect.). Overall a great... More

A Wednesday evening dinner at Bombay Clay Oven did not disappoint. We were immediately greeted by a pleasant server into a lovely and serene atmosphere of immaculately clean white tablecloths, which were not covered by glass. The napkins were beautifully displayed on a table setting with attention to detail. We received a food menu, as well as a separate drink... More

I ate the buffet, rather than testing the restaurant by ordering one of my favorite dishes. The buffet was uninspiring. The saag was the best, despite there being two tandoori dishes, a restaurant specialty, neither of which were adequately spiced. Generally, the dishes were bland. The variety was not so great (given the lack of spice of everything). You can... More
