Best Indian food in Boulder! I eat here once a week. Food is consistently fresh and tasty, with high-quality ingredients. Buffet is great and changes slightly daily.

On a Monday night our group was the only party in the restaurant on arrival around 6:30. It was our first visit, and we weren't sure what to expect. The food was remarkably good and beautifully prepared. We also found that the level of seasoning...More

I have been trying a variety of Indian Lunch Buffets, here in Boulder,and find them for the most part boringly the same. Now with the Clay Oven I found something just a little different that makes me think I will come here again. Same dishes...More

Food was good but have had better. Used a Group On coupon so can't complain. Not a place that I would return to. The service was okay. I think what deters me from going back is the personality of the people there. The man who...More

We have been monthly regulars at this place for a long time. The food is consistently good and the family that runs the restaurant is delightful. We especially like the Tandori prawns and all of the Saag dishes.

Most worst Indian food ever!!! And I really mean it! We had ordered dinner to go and had order tandoori chicken, garlic naan, and butter chicken.

My group of 6 had a good dinner here, but it certainly wasn't the best Indian food we've had.  We enjoyed the samosas, vegetable pakoras, chicken saag, and chicken tikka masala the most.  The service was friendly, and they even gave us some rice pudding...More
