Description: Welcome to Clay Oven! Clay Oven derives its name from tandoor, which is used in traditional Punjabi/North Indian cooking and baking. Punjab is a northern state of India and is very popular for its rich food and flavours, originating from its traditional way of clay oven cooking. Food cooked in Clay Oven is authentic and emits unique aroma – a taste that is impossible to duplicate! Cooking in clay is one of the oldest techniques for cooking exotic meals. The process dates back to the early settlements of the ancient Indus Valley and Harappan Civilization.

After enjoying their food for two years, the last two visits were enough to keep me away forever. To begin with only one server on duty on a Thursday night. If there was any management in the kitchen they never once poked their head around the corner to see what was going on in the front of the house. Food... More

The food here is great. A friend recommended this place. They have a lunch buffet and India videos playing in the background. The prices are kind of high, but would eat there again!

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.

This is the first "Indian Cuisine" restaurant where none of the wait staff, none of the guests (while I was dining) and few of the kitchen staff were East Indian. 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.
