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.

Went here for lunch. The buffet selection was VERY limited. Some food clearly was not made that day for example the tandoori chicken which was hard ans cold. Daal Tadka was burnt and the rice was not fresh. Worth such a limited selection we were pretty much limited to eating Chicken Korma which was underwhelming at best. This was a... More

The Clay Oven has a very nice lunch buffet. A good variety of food; vegetarian dishes, curries, chicken tikka masala and tandori. All the food was hot, fresh and very tasty. Service is excellent as well. The best quality and value Indian cuisine I've found in Pinellas county.

Have tried several, but Clay Oven is the BEST in the Bay for Indian food. Ask for Jessica as your server - she's great. We frequent them weekly and have never been disappointed. Must try the Butter Chicken or the Chicken Korma along with Nan bread. YUM

Five of us went to Clay Oven last night for dinner, having no idea what it was like. Our original restaurant choice was out of business. The food was superb. All five of us were happy with our choices. Unfortunately, they were out of the Meat Samosas, so I began with the Chicken Clear Corn Soup, which was nicely seasoned,... More

We only stumbled across this restaurant because Taste of Punjab which was around the corner had either closed down or moved. Wanting to have Indian food for dinner, we walked over to the Clay Oven and were happy to have done so. After a long wait (probably 20 minutes, but felt longer), our drinks and appetizers (vegetarian and non-vegetarian platters)... More

Excellent Indian buffet during the day, then have the dal soup in the evening. My friend and I each ordered a second bowl. It's that good! Plenty of vegetarian options, and superb flavors, but only as hot as you wish it to be. It's not about the location or the atmosphere. It's all about the food and pleasant service. In... More
