Excellent experience. It was 31th December for dinner while I traveled solo in Calgary. The staff was awesome, smily, in communication from the other side of the room, as the cook looked at me eating with delight what he prepared for me and as I congratulated him, he smiled, satisfied. I loved these people and felt there was someone there... More

Clay Oven was closes for several months and has finally re-opened in a brand new, beautiful location! The food was amazing as always and the atmosphere in the restaurant now matches the divine cuisine. Can't wait to return again!!

After being closed for a move to a new location, that took 5 months - my favourite East Indian restaurant is open. Couldn't wait for my lunch gang so went solo. The buffet line up is expanded, and all very good. And the best butter chicken in in Calgary if not the whole world. They seem to have the right... More

My daughter and I went for dinner using a Groupon. The waiter had recommended we both get a dish and then have rice and naan bread. We had the butter chicken and the chicken marsala dish. The butter chicken was the better choices of the two we thought but we both love butter chicken. The rice and naan were very... More

The food is always great, the service is sometimes scattered and the place is always full! I haven't ever had anything I haven't been happy with. The service is always pleasant, but I go often enough that I'm recognized now. Wine and Beer menu is lacking though. However, I went once for the lunch buffet and didn't love it.

It's always hit and miss here with the service. But the food is just excellent, so worth it. I can get very busy, so it's best to order take out and eat at home.

We have been here a few times and always encounter the same good food and service. The interior is smaller so it gets busy fast but the food is well worth it. I love their Butter Chicken -- a dish that I usually order when we go there.

Service was excellent and friendly. The lunch buffet was delicious. Very good Indian food. Heard a rumour that they will be moving to a new location.
