Disappointing food (except for the Indian Flat bread) extremely terrible atmoshere!

We like Indian food and eat it often in Scotland, where we live. We can even buy it ready made in super markets. ..so we know what to expect from decent Indian food. This place serves cool rice, tough lamb with cool verging on cold sauce. The cheese pakoras were inedible and tasteless. India... read more

This was my first time eating Indian food so I wasn't sure what to expect. We went for Valentines dinner before a night out on the town. From the moment we walked in the door until the moment we left we were treated like extended family. Our server, who I belive is the owner, was so friendly and accomodating. The... More

The restaurant decor is beautiful. Its seems like this business is family owned and everyone was super friendly. I love Indian food and this place did not disappoint as the portion size was so big I took my leftovers back to the hotel. This is one of the two places Valentine's Day Weekend that did not have a 25-30 minute... More

We've always wanted to try Indian cuisine and we are so glad we did!! We couldn't ask for a better experience. From the time we walked in the door until we left, we were made to feel like long lost friends! The atmosphere, the service, the food all wonderful!!

That was delicious as well! We also got dessert, Kheer and Rasmalai....very, very, tasty! Very different! Wish they lived or had a restaurant... More

The decor is the only thing good here. The owner waited on us and was very rude because we had a lot of questions. When our food came there was a bug cooked on a piece of mine! I called him over and he said it was just spices. It was very much a bug. I refused to eat it... More

Wow, if this had really happened this would be awful but it did not! Not sure why you are saying these untrue things about our establishment. We have never failed a health inspection and we have our normal monthly pest control people that come and we have NEVER had a bug in any of our food or in our restaurant... More

The food here is succulent and authentic. The staff treated us like we were returning friends, instead of new customers. We asked questions about the menu, received very knowledgeable guidance. When my chicken tikka masala came out, it was so fresh, full of flavor, and wonderful! Followed that off with a mango lassi and I left with a very happy... More

I had the pleasure of eating at India Clay Oven restaurant on Monday, February 2, 2015 for the first time. I'm glad I finally got to eat there. The decor, hospitality and food and service were superb. We started out with the garlic Naan and the mint dip was delicious. I had the lamb tikki masala and it was outstanding.... More

The food is aromatic and flavorful! We've eaten here several times and have never been dissapointed. From the friendly and helpful staff, to the delicious menu, it is impossible to ask for a better dining experience in the heart of Branson. Don't miss this one!
