The service was fast and friendly! The menu was easy to understand. The staff was very helpful to us "first-timers." The atmosphere was pleasant and cozy. I already want to go back and sample other items from the menu!

Nicely decorated and cozy restaurant. Very good food with clearly high quality and fresh ingredients. Combination plates provide a diverse sampling and almost enough food for two people. Service was very good. Taj Mahal and Kingfisher beers available.

Clay Oven is an unprepossessing storefront, but serves high quality Indian food at a reasonable price. When the food arrived, I was a bit concerned -- the lamb vindaloo looked like it was covered in marinara sauce. However, although it looked a little strange, the...More
