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.

A wide assortment of Indian dishes are available - from curry dishes for lamb and vegetarian. Oddly enough, my favorite are the different naan available. This place is definitely worth it.

Three out of four in our group chose the lunch buffet. This was not listed in their menu. The buffet gives you several dishes; my favorite was the chicken tandoori; the rice was very good, as was the salad. Did not try the soup, but it looked good. The rice pudding was very good. One of my friends opted to... More

If you like Indian, you really enjoy Clay Pit. Took friends who had never been there. We all had great dinners. Lots of different choices, sauces, meats, etc. But best. Is choosing your heat number, from 1 to 6 on the hot spicy scale. Very busy place. And offers take out. Service is good.

We went with as group of 6. Many good choices and many of these could be shared. You rated your tolerance of "hot" from 1 to 5 and they graciously matched it for you - they did seem to imply that you should be certified for a 5. The sauces were a little heavy but very tasty - you might... More

I wanted curry and naan and I am beyond pleased I went to Clay Pit. Service was quick and friendly and the food was delicious. I will definitely be a return customer.
