“Average service of Indian Restaurant”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

The food was very good, but the service could have been a lot better. The server seemed to be surly and disinterested in the customers. Decor was very nice.

“Small buffet but soooo good!”
Reviewed May 9, 2012

I have been to a few Indian food buffets and this one is a great value if you don't mind the limited selection of items. Make sure to set up a reservation if you are planning on being there at lunch! It is a very small resaurant which seats about 50 people, the buffet price at lunch is $13 per person (without drinks), but the food is fantastic. As I said, the selection is (very) limited i.e. 4-6 dessert items, a couple of veggies (rice, and maybe 1-2 other things), and 3-4 meat varieties but oh so good :) If you are a meat-aterian like myself, it is the best bang for your buck ... I literally rolled out of there absolutely full and couldn't think of food for the next 24 hours LOL

“SMALL Buffet”
Reviewed February 6, 2012

Well, I didn't even stay to eat, so I can't comment on the quality of the food, but the buffet was so limited - especially the vegetable options - that I didn't think it was worth staying.

Maybe I'm spoiled by all the good Indian buffets in Nashville, TN (for real!), but this place was seriously lacking.

“Awful”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

We visited the Clay Oven Restaurant after being recommended by friends. Well what a mistake. When we arrived the restaurant was empty. This should have been an indicator. We had several different dishes including the biryani which was awful and a couple of lamb dishes which consisted of mainly of gristle which we could not even swallow. Their idea for hot means to put lots of cayenne pepper on the top of everything. We ended up not being able to eat most of the meal. Now I have eaten in hundreds of curry restaurants over the years in the UK and Canada and enjoy a good hot spicy curry. I have had meals ranging from fantastic to mediocre, but this must be among the worse that I have ever had.
