Indian buffet, the greatest buffet of all. The Clay Oven was ok but left some things to be desired. Although we were sat very quickly, we didn't get served for a good 10 minutes after. It was pretty frustrating. After this, for some reason I...More

We visited on a mid-week night so rather quiet. The waiting staff were knowledgeable and helpful. Tasty and meaty samosas. The veggie pakoras were good too. Its a bit pricey.

First time to the Clay Oven and first impression is very good. Clean and efficient. The lamb was delicious, the naan melted in your mouth. Staff was a little laid back but only I think because we chose the buffett.
