The service was lovely and the food even better. Very authentic and well thought out. A good range of dishes for all. The only low point was perhaps the price: it was definitely in the higher range and not a usual haunt for students like myself however everything considered it was not grudged.

My husband & I had not been to The Clay Oven in years & forgot how good this little gem of a restaurant was. The staff were courteous, helpful & very pleasant, but most importantly the food was delicious. We will definitely return to this little curry house delight.

Excellent choice of food for the all day Sunday buffet, something for everyone's taste. Very good value. Not too much out at one time so nothing drying up, as soon as a platter was near empty it was filled up again never had to wait. We were mid afternoon so i can only rate atmosphere as normal, there were only 3 at my table and another table of 2.

Hi Meal was lovely. Served hot too and we did not have to wait long either inbetween each course. Bit overcrowded tables next to each other and not much space but again remember that was due to the time of year Hogmanay. We were lucky to get booked up at short notice and it was very very busy while we were there.

Food is always good here, and the staff are friendly and attentive, but without being over bearing. It's a relaxed atmosphere and even when busy, is not noisy, and the dining experience is never rushed.

Food was great but got charged for tap water and £2.25 for a can of juice that had a 69p price on it. Had to wait 10 minutes after main meal was delivered for the rice so food was cold.

Decent curry restaurant. Interesting menu, with more fish and seafood options than usual. Lovely fresh poppadums to start. Fish pakora and salmon kebab both well cooked and tasty. Tandoori king prawns were lovely but salty. Good side dishes.
