Terrible :(

My worst ever Indian food experience.

Waiter doesn't speak English and smiles only if you speak Hindi.

Naan served was badly burnt and curry did not have anything to call it taste and only had some color that did not go off my hand for two days.

If you want to eat something this is not the place.

Great Indian food!

This place is delicious! I don't know if they've changed owners since the last 2-3 reviews, but I've been 4-5 times in 2008 and several different people and they all LOVE the food! The service has be good and the ambiance is really nice!

Not bad for take out or delivery

Although the ambiance is clean, well-lit, and pleasant the cuisine failed to live up to our expectations: it was just average. The saag paneer seemed to be prepared from canned spinach and the lamb tikki seemed over-cooked as if it had been warming since lunch (although the sauce was tasty). The samosa was heavy and tasted bland. On the other hand we enjoyed the tasty chai. The wait staff was well-intended and attentive, but disorganized,confused, and forgot some of our order how we wanted our meals spiced. We dine at many Indian restaurants and this one is lost in the pack. Not bad for take out, or a quick, simple meal. Unremarkable and average. There are better choices.

Poor customer service

Decent food but terrible service. After waiting not too long for the order, I opened all the items but did not find my samosas. I then realized that I had received the wrong order, I looked at the ticket and it was obvious that the driver switched my order with another customer as their address was scratched out and mine written above it. Upon calling the restaurant, the manager suggested I just keep the order delivered as it was of slightly greater value than what I ordered and they would ""give me some samosas"" the next time. I politely expressed dissatisfaction with this as the order delivered did not include a single item I had ordered. He then placed me on hold and let the call drop. I reluctantly started to eat the food delivered as I was hungry when the delivery driver called and said he would be back by to pick up the mistaken order. I informed him that I had already begun on the food but that I would at least like to receive my samosas. He just grunted something noncommittal and I did not hear from them again.

good food but watch out for the extras

I have an addiction to Indian buffets but in an effort not to incapacitate ourselves for the rest of the day, my husband and I dined with some friends here for dinner. They had come previously and had enjoyed the food. I would concur. We had several vegetarian appetizers and shared an entree assortment including lamb, chicken, and vegetable dishes -- all were excellent. The naan arrived fresh out of the oven. My only complaint would be that servers are not the friendliest and they will take the liberty to add or assume multiple orders of rice, naan, appetizers if they think more are appropriate for the table -- we got 2 orders of samosas for 4 people when we only wanted one and 4 orders of Naan and rice which was way too much for the table. The bill for the evening was still very reasonable by San Francisco standards but the additional $1 here $2 there does add up. So enjoy the great food but be specific about the number of sides/extras you want to order

India Clay Oven is GREAT!

As a person who frequently dines out, I'm usually a bit picky about my places. Everything at India Clay Oven is great-- the food is delicious of course, but more importantly, the staff anticipates your needs before they become needs, and have a certain grace that is lacking in many places. The ambience is wonderful: a wall made of windows allows you to see the outside world, while the inside is decorated with lovely wood and soft lighting. I enjoy every aspect of this place, and it passes my test of service: the water glasses are never empty. I highly recommend this place for those who care about both the quality of the meal and the environment you enjoy it in.
