Had Chicken Vindaloo, it was screaming spicy which is how I like it. Service was OK, atmosphere is strip-mall average.

This place has fantastic Indian food. The service is great. I suggest getting the vegetarian meal for one or the vindaloo! So tasty!

This was an adventure for most of my group and we were welcomed into a very clean restaurant. All questions were encouraged and answered. Everyone got something different and I have to say each dish was presented beautifully and was extremely tasty. Prices were very reasonable. The only reason if didn't give them a 5 was because they ran out... More

We went with group of friends, celebrating a birthday, determined to try something new. The staff was welcoming the moment we walked in & very helpful with menu explanations/suggestions. Our table shared appetizers & bread baskets, all were terrific. Each of us ordered something different & were pleased with our food. Service was fairly quick even though the small restaurant...

The waiter forewarned us on the level... More

There aren't many Indian restaurants in Frederick, just Clay Oven and Delhi 6. Between the two, I like Delhi 6 a lot better. Clay Oven's food is spicier yet less flavorful, and the service isn't very good. Over all, the food is just ok going in, but it's no joke when it works it's way out of you alarmingly quickly....

When we moved to the area we were suprised and pleased to find the BEST Indian restaurant we have ever found to be right down the road! We have been eating here regularly for 3 years and have never been disappointed. The place is on the small side and there aren't a lot of 'frills' to the decor, but it... More

We don't need to travel to DC to have amazing Indian food! Everyone was so kind and welcoming. Everything we ordered was authentic and delicious. We cannot wait to go back!

After moving from Frederick several years ago, we always find a way to make it here. The menu does not disappoint along with the quality. We have always enjoyed Clay Oven and will be back for our next visit.
