I visited the Clay Pit on Sunday, October 16, 2016. We had a party of 8 - 6 adults and 2 children. My husband and I had never actually been to an Indian restaurant before (my husband had never tried Indian food at all and I had only tried it once from a take out joint). The kids were 5... More

Great food quickly delivered. Service a miss, as is understanding English. Simple request like a lemon twist for a cocktail first turned into olives then limes. Trying to get leftovers into to go boxes was a challenge for our server. Couldn't understand the concept of half the rice in one box and the rest in another box with the two... More

I'm usually a picky eater, especially when it comes to Indian food, but this place is awesome. Their naan is tasty. I tend to get lamb korma, and it is mouth watering delicious. I have taken a bunch of friends there and not once has anyone had a bad meal or food item.

The food was good not great.We loved the Jaipuri mango curry.The spice level in two other curries was way too much.We had ordered a 4 on... More

I have enjoyed every meal I've ordered here, as have my dinner friends. I love the choices too. The buffet is really good, tho I always order from the menu. I have Celiac disease, so gluten free food is strictly required. When telling the server, they understand, and are know which food I can order and which I cannot. Further,... More

Came here for dinner and the food was great. I don't eat Indian food a lot so I really tell the nuances between the what the dishes "should" taste like - it was yummy in my mouth is all I remember. The lamb dishes are recommended.

We come here once awhile for their lunch buffet. These are the items we like: nans, chicken masala, grilled fresh veggies, fresh fruits and mango pudding. Lots of shops in the areas for all sorts of things. We can spend all day in the area. Highly recommended (for those that can tolerate some yuppy-ish culture:) )

We used to go to Clay Pit in Mill Creek (15418 Main St, Mill Creek, WA) occasionally for an average Indian buffet lunch, but there is no way we are going to return. We’ve always been aware that the owners of this place appeared kind of rough around the edges, but we never imagined that they would act so aggressive... More

Wonderful little Indian restaurant that serves out-of-this world food. My favorite is the Kasturi Lamb Curry. Rich vibrant flavors infuse the lamb and reach out to your soul. My son and his girlfriend love, love, love the Butter tomato chicken. This is our go-to place when we want to celebrate life's joys. Cannot recommend it enough.
