When I eat outta town I like to try foods I can't find at home. This place worked. Also when each dish has its own flavors it indicates to me it is more real.

The food was authentic, the service was excellent and as far as prices go, you get what you pay for and everything was delicious.

I would never go back here when there is such a great Indian restaurant right up the road in Dixon. It's OK, but misses the mark if you want truly authentic and complex Indian the way it is in India.I would call this Indian "fast food." It gave me indigestion.

The quality of the food is very high, but I feel that it is overpriced for what you get. I spent over $45 for lunch for two people. Also, I have never been charged for naan bread before in any Indian restaurant I've been in.

If you love tandoori style cooking you'll absolutley love this restaurant. The naan is delicious with many choices. I love the garlic and the onion naan. I had an all meat tandoori plate with chicken and salmon and it was the best I've ever had. No matter what we have here it's great! the drinks are good and they offer... More

Chicken tikka masala, garlic naan, yogurt sauce, rice - all so yummy. Service is polite but seriously and pathetically slow. Slow, slow. They also don't check on you often - but food is great.

I love Indian food, and this might be the best Indian restaurant where I've been. Excellent food, great service. Try the local red wine; it goes great with the spices.

We ordered my fave Indian dish: chicken tikka masala & we tried tandoori chicken, vegetarian biryani rice & plain nan. Everything was good & u can't eat fast nor eat too much Bcoz u hav to savor the rich flavors of every dish. A little pricey but worth it

My husband loves Indian food and this was our first time here. A friend, that loves Indian food recommended that we give them a try and Clay Oven did not disappoint. First, the place is spotlessly clean and inviting, which is really important, plus the bar area is very nice. The hostess and wait staff were very friendly and welcoming.... More

The decor is sort of lacking. But don't let that fool you. The service and the food was wonderful. Hubby and I had so much food left over we had a second nights dinner. The appetizer sample plate was nice, fun to try different things. My Lamb Korma was delish. The lamb sweet and delicate, tender too. Hubby had a... More
