Best Indian lunch buffet in indy! Like the service, they do it just right, don't hesitate you all the time, but they make sure you have everything ok. My favorite is curry chicken and their mango dessert. They serve ice water from copper pitchers, fresh...More

My wife and I are always searching for better restaurants. We have definitely hit a winner in the Indiana market with Clay Oven. The store is smaller and usually rather quiet around dinner time, nice decor and feels comfortable. The staff are always quick to...More

This is one of the best Indian restaurants in Indianapolis! Food is always so good. Service isn't the best, but since its buffet, it doesn't matter. I think its more typical Indian style service than American, and I will take it! This is must at...More

We lived in Indianapolis until 2014, and this was our favorite Indian restaurant. Everything tastes great. The Naan is awesome, and the Mango Lassi is a kids' favorite. I love the spicy chicken and shrimp tikka. We always come back when we visit.

This restaurant doesn't look much from the outside...a lot of Indiana Restaurants in Indiana are like that, but the food is pretty good. The curries are excellent and you get exactly what you order heat wise, which is not always true in the mid west....More

We went about 45 minutes before closing for lunch buffet. There was no meat in the lamb curry or chicken curry just gravy. The sambhar is a joke. Forget about even being authentic. The refresh of the buffet never happened despite asking specifically for it....More

This restaurant has been reviewed by many other sites, and I find it unusual that no one has made mention of it previously to tripadvisor. I would enjoy writting a review. The place is noteworthy, and my experience there was wonderful. Hope to hear from you. Thank you!
