I have to tell you, this is one of the most lovely dining experiences in recent memory. I took a long time friend to celebrate her birthday for lunch, and the service and food were superior. Well, maybe more than superior. We were welcomed throughout the meal in such a lovely way. The food was extraordinary and my friend’s birthday was celebrated not just with a comp dessert but an incredible sparkler! Not your Fourth of July kind. Much better. We are so grateful for the hospitality, and I will be returning often based on this experience. Everyone was authentic, sincere, and lovely. Just finished leftovers for dinner!
Absolutely delicious! We have eaten here for years but our latest dining experience was our best to date. The food and the service were both flawless. If you have always wanted to try Indian but were a bit intimidated by the menu, this is the place for you. The staff will help you choose a range of dishes to sample. It’s a fun place to meet friends for conversation over interesting food.
Despite the humdrum name that touches on every Indian restaurant cliche -- Clay Oven Tandoor Indian Grill serves exquisite food of great complexity that compares favorably with the creations I've enjoyed at some of India's finest restaurants! Do yourself a favor: set aside an evening with friends (or simply with a loved one) to experience culinary greatness, preferably on a less-crowded weeknight.
