We hadn't heard that they'd moved, so imagine when we saw the shell of the old building being worked in! Just 20 metres further on is the new, much bigger, Clay Oven. We hadn't booked and the restaurant was very busy, but we were shown to the bar area to wait and have a drink. 5 minutes or so and... More

We wandered by this restaurant and decided to try and were not disappointed. I had prawn curry and coconut, which was just enough(portions), with rice and their naan bread. My husband had prawns with curry(tomato) and was satisfied with his choice. We also had their homemade pistachio ice cream. Lovely meal.

We were practically sitting with the people on both sides of us and we couldn't talk as all we could hear was the the people beside us conversation. The food was nice... More

Great food and fantastic service. The restaurant is full every day so best arrive about 6-7pm if you haven't booked ahead as you will need to wait for a table afterwards. Food is first class, best curry I've ever had!!! Everything is cooked in front of you in an open kitchen. Service and ambience of place is really good. Restaurant... More
