From the live sitar player to the special tables where you remove your shoes and sit on pillows under a private canopy, this is a pleasant break from the commercial activity of the neighborhood. Great menu options for vegetarians and vegans too.

My friend and I stopped in for lunch last week. She was not very familiar with Indian food so she chose the buffet to try many different items. She absolutely fell in love with the cuisine! She loved everything she tried. I had the lamb korma, which was amazing. At first the server was a little frustrated with us because... More

Despite visiting this restaurant numerous times over the past 10+ years I was shocked at the deterioration in service they provided in my most recent visit. From a drink that tasted devoid of alcohol to the delivery of one of our two entrees 15 minutes prior to the other entree, and from the wrong second entree being delivered to the... More

Keith, we're so disappointed to read about your most recent experience at Bombay Clay Oven. We strive to make sure that all of our guests have 5-star experience when they join us, but it sounds like we really missed the mark when you dined with us. In short, the service you received is not the kind of experience we ever... More

The food here is tasty and spicy (especially when you ask for it) and the service is friendly. Probably the healthiest menu in the Cherry Creek shopping neighborhood, and never crowded. Outdoor and indoor seating, with live music (sitar musician) some nights. Brisk take-out/to-go service too. Bonus fun: seating in canopied, curtained raised divans (remove shoes before taking a seat... More

We were in the mood for Indian and decided to give Bombay Clay Oven a try. The interior atmosphere is tired and dark. The outside patio is very nice. The staff were very friendly and the service was adequate. We opted for the buffet to sample the various fare. The selection was not vast but enough to give you an... More

This is my 4th visit to Bombay, one each on my last 4 trips to Denver. Their food is just exquisitely delicious! On this visit, our party of 3 shared Aloo Gobi and Naan with 3 sauces. The three of us ordered Chicken Tandoori, Korma with Shrimp and Safed Maas - everything was beautifully presented and was absolutely delicious. One... More

We have been going to this restaurant for years and often go there for a date night or when shopping in Cherry Creek. The food is consistently good - try the saag, it is so good. The interior of the restaurant is a little worn, so perhaps an interior update is in order, but you won't be disappointed in the... More

I have dined here in the past and the food has always been delicious and the service top-notch. I'll be honest buffets make me nervous, I am always concerned about food safety and quality when food sits out but it has always been fabulous. We came in for lunch today and opted for the buffet after taking a quick look... More
