Tonight, my daughter took me here for my birthday as it is one of our favorite restaurants, and most definitely our favorite Indian restaurant. We have been to many in the area the past 20 years, and Clay Oven is the best overall. I always enjoy their buffet, but tonight needed to comment on dinner. Their Tuesday/Wednesday night specials are... More

The atmosphere isnt perfect, but the food truly makes up for it. I love tge chicken Kashmir and garlic naan. My friends and I always enjoy the food and staff. My one friend is Indian and she enjoys the dishes and likes the spice. I go mild, which they accommodate well without loss of flavor.

The spices were weak--I asked for the spice to be hot and it was mild at best, however, the folk at the next table, their first time at the restaurant,... More

I'm new to Indian food, so I went with the recommendations on Trip Advisor and had Butter Chicken and naan. The food was wonderful. If you have never tried Indian food, give it a try...you won't be disappointed.

The starters were so good esp the side dishes. It was soooooo tasty. They offer a huge variety of dishes. The chicken biriyani was too good. The quantity of the dish was good for 2 people. We enjoyed it. We will definitely visit the place to try their different recipes.
