Diner Reviews
  • "It's too hot inside the restaurant and it is currently winter, during our hot and humid summers it is not a place where I would go out to eat. I've been to other east Indian restaurants that have good ventilation and the smell doesn't linger as much as this location."

  • "The area is spacious and nicely set up. We ordered palak paneer, chicken vindaloo, goat and grilled prawns to start. The prawns were delicious as was the chicken. Very highly recommended. I was told the goat was tasty and naan came out fresh. Unfortunately we weren't aware the palak paneer would have cream in it. All in all, a very enjoyable experience."

  • "My wife and I visited for the first time since the change from Hu's on First. The food was excellent, as it is at the other two Clay Oven locations. While the ambience is fine, the space feels a little too open, relative to the set up, previously, when it was Hu's. This made it feel a little less like a date spot, and more like a place to take the family, which is likely what we'll do next time."

  • "A tasty spot at Shaw Park (former location of Hu's On FIrst). Rather "lively" in the noise department, and stark in terms of furnishings. What it lacked in decor, it made up for in the food. It was hot, tasty, and full of flavour. Unfortunately the basmati rice was not up the standard of the rest of the food, being of rather low quality rice to begin with. The service was excellent. The price was just right for the portion sizes. The vast selection of dishes should allow everyone to find something they like."

  • "We are self proclaimed "foodies", and focus on visiting good restaurants with highly rated food during each vacation or business trip that we take outside of Winnipeg. We appreciate good food. Having said that, I will say that we were totally "wowed" by every single dish that we ordered during our recent visit to Clay Oven Shaw Park! Although similar in menu (and tastiness) to the Kenaston location, the addition of an additional menu (Hakka?) allowed for the sampling of additional unique foods (we loved the manchurian noodles!) The butter chicken and vindaloo shrimp were similarly amazing as was a curry dish and the naan bread. The server was very pleasant, knowledgable and attentive. Great experience and a true gem for Winnipeg!"

  • "I have tried almost all of the East Indian Restaurants in Winnipeg. This one is one of my favorites. The ambience and look of the room is just a bonus. The service was also good and pricing was average. I thoroughly enjoyed the presentation of the food. We had the samosa appetizer and the combo plate which gave you a large variety."

  • "We were treated as an annoyance. Anything we asked for they were apparently out of. No cream for coffee, wine was limited, no liqueurs at the bar, couldn't make specialty coffees etc. No coffee or beverages refills, did not offer dessert, carry away was all wrapped up in one container, odd for two women dining together. What really took the cake though is they went around the dining room shortly after 10pm and told everyone to leave!!!! There were about 30 people still in the dining room, they wouldn't even let us wait 5 minutes for our ride. Guess we should have known when they turned on the lights and started mopping at 9:00pm. Was no surprise this restaurant was only half full the weekend before Christmas. Would definitely not return"

  • "Clay Oven delivers good quality Indian fare, but the service is not up to par. The wait staff do not speak in clear voices and are overly friendly. We tried to get some explanations on dishes before ordering, but this proved rather difficult. No one came back to ask us if our food was ok. For the very high prices -- $17 per dish on average -- the dining experience should have been at least as good as the food."
    Dined on 12/11/2013
  • "While the food and service are very good, the prices are quite high for the amounts that are served. It seems that every time we've been there, the prices go up and the serving sizes go down. I wonder how long this can go on before business starts to decline."

  • "This new ethnic theme in an existing site was worth the visit. Variety plate has several good tastes. Bread slightly burnt, but edible. Butter chicken great. Service (new to the job) was excellent. Busy, but not too loud in the booths. Will definitely go back."

  • "Our after theatre group all enjoyed our dinner. The service was good and the food delicious."
    Dined on 11/9/2013
  • "I was hoping for so much more. The service was awful. No one to greet or seat us upon arrival, and we waited over 20 minutes for a drinks order to be taken after being shown to our seats. Even after that, when our drinks were prepared they sat on the bar for 10 minutes, to the point that they were warm and flat. The food was average, certainly nothing special. For those who are used to indian food this will be a disappointment."

  • "Had two special occasion celebrations at the restaurant. My friends who attended the first one, wanted to come back for the second celebration to Clay Oven - Shaw Park. Reason... this is the only restaurant in town that has Hakka Chinese food on their menu. It is simply delicious, along with their regular menu. Everyone could order food to their taste due to their variety menu options. Great dining! Wonderful Staff! Highly recommend this place!!"

  • "our server was friendly, warm, confident, not over the top, but could have checked in with us more often, as our group would have ordered more items as we waited for other guests. Our "surprise is with a recommended entre" request turned out to be a superb choice. well done Clay Oven."

  • "Food was good, service was 50/50, guy was friendly and knowledgeable, but the follow through wasn't great, as in forgot 3 different food/drink requests until we had to ask again, annoying! We were also there for the baseball game, but view is not ideal, wouldn't recommend for that at all."
