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.

This family-run restaurant is located at the back of a nondescript strip mall in northeast Calgary. Although it is rather bland inside, it appears to be very popular and I understand that they will soon be moving to another location nearby that will give them twice the space. The service was exceptional - fast, efficient and extremely friendly. I am... More

It's a little tucked away though well worth the visit. Small restaurant so a reservation is recommended.

If you are looking for a good place for Indian food I highly recommend this place. Felt welcomed at the door coming in. Service was so amazing from beginning to the end. The food was to die for was so happy to have leftovers. I would be back there for sure in the future.

Amazing authentic, true Indian cuisine with friendly service. As for service, they get an A+. Probably the most polite host we have ever come across. While my tastes in Indian food are very generic I thought the food here was great! The portions were decent, & the prices were normal for Calgary. The menu is large, a lot to choose... More

This hole in the wall was a spicy, super flavorful experience. The menu is extensive and the prices reasonable. My meal was rich in aroma and flavor. My brow was sweating but the excellent service kept my ice water full. The only thing keeping me from rating it as excellent is the decor which is a little......blah.

Ambiance is non existent, in a strip mall, not a romantic place to go. The food was average at best... nothing bad but nothing remarkable Note that their heat levels are underrated. Their 'hot' is actually a phal level of chili. If you are used to UK vindaloo heat then order a medium!

We have been going here for several years now and have always had excellent food. We love the pakoras, the naan and the chicken tikka. The service is friendly and quick. We have had Indian food all over the world and have found few places that compare to the quality you will find at the Clay Oven.
