“Excellent Indian Food at a great price”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 8, 2013

This was my first visit to the Clay Oven, but I have to say, I was impressed. The service was good, and the lunch buffet of Indian classics was excellent. They had three different kids of curry dishes with various meats, and they were all very good. They were spicy, but not too spicy. It was hard not to eat too much at this place. The prices were a little less than I expected.

I highly recommend you go if you like Indian food.

“good food at a reasonable price”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 10, 2013

The food was excellent and the service was attentive. The restaurant is small so may be not be able to handle large groups. Definitely going to return for the buffet. Beats all the chain restaurants in the area for price and quality of food.

“Reliable Standby in Frederick”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 3, 2012

Clay Oven has proven a reliable standby for Indian cuisine in Frederick--an area that seems to have a high turnover of Indian restaurants. The lunch buffet remains reasonably priced ($8.95 weekdays, $10.95 weekends). Bucking the trend to buffet blandness, the Clay Oven isn't afraid to serve up a little spiciness. Although the owner is Nepalese, the menu is pretty much straight up Indian.

Service is friendly and efficient. The owner is generous and gracious. The decor is crisp and clean.

“Good Food and Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2012

We were recently visiting DC area and on our way back stopped at Clay Oven for lunch. Good place, nice food was perfect for the long journey ahead. It was a big hit with our elders, since they were craving for some indian food. The place is small, but the service offered was great. The owner was excellent, even after driving down from Toronto the prior night. The buffet choices were also good.

“Good food!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 14, 2012

We are Indian food lovers, and while visiting Frederick visited the Clay Oven. The service was quick and the food was delish. Excellent garlic naan, and the vindaloo had great flavor. The serving sizes were perfect as well...plenty of food, but not so much as to be wasteful. It certainly hit the spot and satisfied my craving for Indian food!
