About Clay Oven - Indian Street Kitchen
Lovely food, staff and atmosphere
I have been here twice now. The mains are great. There is a good range of veggie and vegan choices. The garlic chilli curry is delish!! The nan breads are also perfect. I only ordered starters the last time to share (fish pakora and chatt bomb) however these are just okay, maybe it was my choices and hopefully next time will be better! I love the way its BYOB (plus £1 corkage a person). Would like to go back soon.
Great food and service. Went for my son's 21st Birthday and really enjoyed it. BYOB was a great idea! Look forward to returning soon.
