“superb indian food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 30, 2014

As a British family we love hot spicy Indian/Pakistani food and to date this is the only restaurant that comes anywhere close to the standards we had come to expect in the UK. It may have taken us some time to find the Clay but having done so we never go anywhere else. Excellent food and service.

“Clay Oven”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2014

We went to the Clay Oven early on a Thursday evening. There was lots of room. The only problem we had was that one dish we wanted was not ready. The server suggested a different dish which was excellent.
Overall we were very satisfied and full!

“Best Indian Food, both Calgary and Toronto”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 2, 2014

My wife and I started eating at the Clay Oven when we first moved to Calgary in 2004. We loved it. Then when we had kids, we stopped going, but kept doing takeout.
We moved to Toronto in 2008, and have been trying many different Indian restaurants in Toronto, but have never found one that we like as much.
It's now been 5 years, and we wondered if we were just glorifying the past, and overinflating our memories of Calgary.
However, I was recently back in Calgary for a short business trip, and returned to try the food - it still remains my favorite Indian restaurant.

Service is great. Warm and friendly.
We typically order lamb goscht, butter chicken, cauliflower, naan & rice.
Portions are generous for an Indian restaurant.

We were a bit tired of the hotel food and called for delivery. Everything was just as ordered. Nice flavors, good portions.

“Worth a visit”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 18, 2014

Not too impressed with welcome and atmosphere in restaurant think couple front of house either need a day off or had a row
We ordered prawn bamdini and chicken vindaloo , rice for 2 and a nan
It would have been nice to have been told rice for 2 would feed 5 people and was just a waste of food for 2 people
Curries were ok would not eat here again due to miserable owners and fact we were not told that the rice was just too much for 2
