We go here once a month and always have an outstanding experience. The food and staff are always great.

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

We visited Bombay Clay Oven Restaurant on Steele Street in Denver while shopping in the Cherry Creek North area. Our waiter, Dillion, was a great guide to our first experience with Indian dinning. We loved it. The food and drinks were excellent. Thank you Dillion.

We stop by at least once a month. The vindaloo is outstanding. The lunch buffet is always loaded with tasty dishes, try the Tiki Masala. To top it off, the rice pudding and the mangos in yougurt are always a treat.
