Food was great as usual. The chicken thali was delicious. This was the first time the service was pathetic. Never received a visit after we received our food for beverage refill or see how the food was.

Denis, I'm sorry to hear that, I will talk to the staff to remind them of the importance of quality checking and refilling drinks! Where were you seated, and what time of day was your visit? More

Normally I live eating at the Clay Oven but my last two visits were terrible. About 20 family members went for a celebration on a Tuesday. I arrived first with 3 kids. We waited one hour to get our food which included the appetizers. Everyone else in the group received their food while we waited. The server said the kitchen... More

I love going to Clay Oven! I started going back when they only had a single location on Inkster, and it's been reliably amazing. My favorite thing to order is a Butter Chicken Thali platter, with a side of Mozzarella naan. That way you get to try a little bit of everything; I've been able to try many menu items... More

Been to the Clay Oven several times, and all visits have been very good. Most recenty had the butter chicken, tandoori chicken, shrimps plus an extra order of the naan bread. Service overall is good, but can be hit and miss on occasion. It's fun to watch them prepare the food behind the glass wall. Have also ordered food for... More

A friend recommended this restaurant and SO glad they did. This is by far the best Indian restaurant I have ever gone to! From the staff, to the restrooms, the atmosphere and especially the food! I travel on business quite a lot and this is my new "GO TO" restaurant in Winnipeg!!!!!

Clay oven, stop faking real Indian food. You are cooking and selling cheap version of butter chicken which is not even close to how good butter chicken tastes and marked on you menu as house speciality.most of the dishes are overpriced. Terrible

My wife and I went and had the meal for two. Delicious mains- butter chicken and the chick pea vindaloo dish- and the amounts were amazing. We could not finish it- it came on two trays with rice, Samosas, Naan, a nice fresh salad. We love Indian food and this was authentic and nice and spicy with all the extras... More

We eat here often. Of course it's a little more spendy but that's OK. There is an excellent ambience and the place is usually packed! I'd give the desert a miss as they're usually a bit sickly sweet. Except the rice pudding -yum yum! Tons of vegetarian cuisine to choose from. There's lamb, chicken, goat and prawns. You will enjoy!
