I live in Algarve, this is the best Curry house in the Algarve, we travel from Vilamoura to get our curries here. Really good. When you ask for three different dishes, you get three difference dishes. Not like others who use the same sauce no matter what curry you ask for. Really is a Gem! Nice friendly people too.

We stumbled across this when looking for a different Indian, and were very glad we did. The food was lovely and had no complaints from start to finish. Paid 85 euros for four of us including popadoms, onion bajis, four mains, 4 beers, a baileys and a vodka. So can't complain for roughly 20 euro a head. Would recommend.

My husband and I were told how good Clay Oven would be. It was very busy and the service was off hand to the point of being quite rude. We dismissed this as the member of staff being too busy but when the food arrived it was not as good as expected. We were glad to eat most of it... More

Stumbled across the Clay Oven this week and what a fantastic find, the food was fantastic, the chicken bhuna I had was so full of flavour, my wife had chicken shaslik and my son had a prawn balti, all tasted great, the naan bread was perfect and so flavoursome. We enjoyed it so much we are going again tonight.
