A very well balanced buffet. The food was authentic Indian. It is not a super fancy place but the service and food is tops. I could go once a month...will be back for sure. All the dishes were well prepared with not too much over spicing as sometimes occurs at some restaurants.

As a non Indian food fan I was hesitant, figuring I'd have the safe white girl doesn't like Indian dish of butter chicken and naan bread. However I'm also well travelled and do enjoy trying new things, I just didn't want an entire meal of something I might not like. Thankfully we had a fabulous solution which was to order multiple items and share as so many cultures do. And, turns out I now have more than one Indian dish that I will happily eat. We did get the wussy white girl staple of butter chicken, so I had something to fall back on if needed but we also enjoyed some lamb vindaloo, tandoori chicken and two other main dishes I don't remember names of. The starters were awesome. They managed the spice level for white girl hot and those who actually like some heat very well. I figure I'll be back when I need to eat those pakoras again. All the food was tasty. And judging by the heavy patronage by mostly East Indian clients, it's up to their standards too.

Always come here for their awesome butter chicken. Usually came when buffet was open. This time we ordered and were able to choose the spice level. Hot is hot so be careful, I ordered the mild which was spicy enough for me. Food tasted great but naan bread was a little overdone.

I was disappointed with the presentation of this restaurant. Not enough staff to cleanup after the lunch rush. The tables were filled with dirty dishes. We had the buffet at that point and they didn’t care to refill some of the items. The dirty tables were around us through our lunch It didn’t seem to bother the employees that there were 8 customer in the restaurant eating and how unsightly it looks. The owner should look around that there are many more restaurants competing for business and should look after the customers coming your establish for good food, service and ambience.

This is the BEST place to have curry worldwide! And I've eaten in many counties! Including India! If you are in Calgary and love Indian authentic cuisine, then you must visit! The buffet is exceptional, and so is the hospitality! This is the second review made and the I'll likely not be the last! Best on the planet! Butter Chicken to die for!

I have been coming to The Clay Oven for a long time (back when it was in another location) and had my wedding rehearsal dinner here. The food is always amazing. I remember one night overhearing another table talking and one fellow said he had just gotten off the plane from a visit to London, England and just had to come get his “Clay Oven” fix. I’ve been to London as well, have gone out for East Indian there, and this place beats it hands down. I especially love the Naan bread and the Chicken Tikka, but it’s all good. Do yourself a favour and come to this place - they have a great lunch buffet but dinner has way more choices. I love this place!!!

Excellent food! Great selection. Staff is very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return! There is a relaxed feel to the place. We noticed several people who appeared to be regulars - always a good endorsement!

Nice clean building, friendly wait staff. We had the dinner buffet on a Thursday evening. Food was ok, quite bland, it was fresh and plentiful. Could have used some more spices. The butter chicken was the best item at the buffet. However bland the food might have been, the after effects on my digestive system were anything but bland! It wasn’t an allergy, it wasn’t food poisoning, it was more like a reaction to a HUGE overload of MSG. Whatever it was, we will never return.

Words can’t do scribe the heavenly experiences this place has to offer. The only problem is that you can’t just have one plate of food... and by the time you realize you overate... you are ready to rupture... but it’s worth it!!! Fresh naan breads, piping hot dishes with quality ingredients... If you want to experience Indian Cuisine’s finest... this is the place. TIP: if you are not sure about what to eat... try their lunch buffet... that way you can try one... or all of their dishes... Cheers.

My son took my husband and I to this restaurant and the food was amazing. Really liked the hand-made naan bread. Staff were very polite.

We went to Clay Oven for dinner on a Sunday evening when most of the restaurant was taken over by a group celebrating a young girl’s teenage birthday. It was a celebratory atmosphere, but rather loud. However, they tried to place us as far from the birthday crowd as possible. They were serving a buffet but told me we could also order off the menu. The vegan buffet items were not marked, but they were glad to show us which we could have. They had several vegan options on the buffet so we elected to have it. The food was delicious. Highly recommend if you are in the area.

Calgary’s industrial north east isn’t where I’d expect to find one of the best North Indian restaurants I’ve sampled lately but it’s worth the trip. Clean and modern decor with an open kitchen view of the tandoor where the chef pulls out skewers of authentically spiced prawns and meats, not fake red, but genuine ochre color. The naans are a revelation, light and crisp, not doughy. The papri chaat street food app is terrific. Has lamb saag and the eggplant bartha with tandoori prawns and some rice for an excellent meal for 3 or 4. Some fine kulfi for dessert. Reasonable drink list, but stick with some excellent Indian Kingfisher beer.

Tried a few dishes here, the Biryani and Chicken Curry and was super disappointed, not sure why this place is rated so high. I went off the good reviews and thought I would try it out. The food did not taste authentic Indian cuisine at all. Its to bad its such a nice restaurant inside but needs to improve big time on the dishes. Me and my friends won't be going back.
