So disappointed with Clay Oven. We will try Mumbai Grill next time. I’m so tired of calling in or placing orders on door dash and then never being ready. My husband was told the order would be ready in 35 minutes tonight. He got there...More

My wife and had a sitter and decided on Indian over sushi. We chose the Clay Oven, mainly, because the menu was easier to access over the other options on the south side of Indy. We were quite satisfied with our choice. We were seated...More

My sons recommended this place and the food is excellent! The food is made to order and they adjust the heat to your liking. Just a couple of things as we frequent other Indian restaurants they should increase the quantity for take out dishes and...More

Best Indian lunch buffet in indy! Like the service, they do it just right, don't hesitate you all the time, but they make sure you have everything ok. My favorite is curry chicken and their mango dessert. They serve ice water from copper pitchers, fresh...More

My wife and I are always searching for better restaurants. We have definitely hit a winner in the Indiana market with Clay Oven. The store is smaller and usually rather quiet around dinner time, nice decor and feels comfortable. The staff are always quick to...More

My wife and I along with friends went to the Clay Oven during lunchtime when they have a buffet. It was well stocked and had about 12 different entrees including some vegan, along with naan, desserts, and salad. Food was well prepared and seasoned nicely....More
