Diner Reviews
  • "This was our second visit and we enjoyed it even more than our first. The first time we went was great too, but the food was cooked even more to our taste this time and it was absolutely delicious. The service here is great. The owner clearly takes pride in the quality of the food and making sure that customers are happy. I think this is the best indian food around and we will be back for sure."

  • "Can I go again already? It's our new favorite place to eat! Food is the best authentic Indian around. IndeBlue is more fusion, but not necessarily authentic. Plus it's way more expensive. I'd rather go here for the non-special occasions. Every time we get the bill we're amazed because we always get enough food for an extra 2 meals! It has wonderful flavors, and choice of how much kick you want. It's amazing!"

  • "Some of the best service I've received -- very friendly and accommodating, delicious authentic Indian cuisine with plenty of options for special diets. Felt like we were family! Can't wait to return!"

  • "I was excited to try this new Indian restaurant and I was impressed. The food was very good and very reasonably priced. Good Indian food depends on the quality of the meat and the meat here was very good. We had the mixed appetizer and it was a large portion of good food and the fried part was not greasy. I had the chicken tikka masala and he had the lamb vindaloo. Both were great the only complaint we had was that we asked for very spicy and the food was not close to spicy. It was very flavorful but we really like spicy. The naan bread was excellent. The service was superb and the restaurant was small but clean and comfortable. We will be back and next time we will ask for extra spicy!"

  • "Second time here and loved it again! Not sure how it compares to other Indian restaurants because this is the only one I've been too. That being said, myself and the party I was with all enjoyed the food and the experience. Will definitely be going back."

  • "I have been to the Clay Oven several times now, and each meal has been a delight! The food is authentic, the atmosphere simple, yet pleasant. The lunch buffet was particularly good and reasonably priced. Just a few blocks from downtown, it is easy to get to and a better value! A definite MUST TRY on your Collingswood Dining List!!!"

  • "My boyfriend and I went to the Clay Oven Palace for my birthday dinner to try Indian cuisine for the first time and we were absolutely blown away. We informed our server that we had never tried Indian food before and she took the time to walk us through the menu and explained what the popular dishes were. We settled on an appetizer that samosa chaat which was crispy, yogurty, and the perfect combination of flavors. We ordered the Chilly Chicken and Shrimp Nargisi and were amazed. The curries were extremely rich in flavor, and so different and delicious in their own way. Needless to say, we will be coming back to this hidden gem and I've already recommended it to everyone who will listen!"

  • "This place is a gem! Get in now while its still new and people are finding out about it. I have no bad points to make about this place. Food was really good Indian food! My boyfriend loves indian food, and spice, and I cant handle spice, but they worked with us and it was sooooooo good. Both of us thought it was perfect.There was so much food we have to take it home. So we got two meals, and the price made my boyfriend recalculate it cause we thought they missed something! So cheap, but you would never know it by the food. The service was wonderful! For my single ladies out there, our waiter was cuuuuuuute! Perfect all the way around! Well be back! And soon!"

  • "BYOB with reasonably priced food and pleasant service. Chef is able to customize some of the entrees for individual preferences. Extensive menu. This is the kind of place where you can meet friends, enjoy a good meal, spend time visiting without feeling rushed, and pay the bill without needing a bank loan."

  • "This was the best curry we ever had. Everything was obviously freshly prepared with the freshest of ingredients. Our waitress was very attentive and friendly. When we asked she said they were always pretty quiet. What a shame. People of Collingswood get along and sample this excellent food - you won't be disappointed. If you're wary of Indian cuisine they will cook it mild for you. We come from Scotland where curries are very popular and with food of this standard this place would have been overflowing on a Saturday night. We were going to a concert at the nearby Scottish Rites Auditorium so if you're ever headed there eat at Clay Ove Palace first - you won't be disappointed."

  • "This was our second dinner here. It was excellent as it was the first time. The food, service and friendliness are all wonderful. The first time we went with 2 other couples and this time with one other couple. Service is timely, but we were never rushed and could enjoy our friends as well as the food."

  • "First time I ever had Indian cuisine and was blown away. My girlfriend, who has enjoyed Indian food many times, said it was the best she ever had. We were nervous because place was empty on a Saturday night but so glad we went in. Waiter was friendly and efficient and place was clean and uncluttered. We are definitely going back!"

  • "I am sad to say I only gave the restaurant 3 stars for my overall experience. Even though the food was amazing and extremely affordable, the creepy quietness kind of ruined it for us. My boyfriend and I were the only people in the restaurant, other than the host and the cooks in the kitchen. There was no music, and things were just a little too creepy for our liking. Yes, we pigged out on some delicious Indian food, but we couldn't really enjoy it. It just seemed as if everything we said was being listened too. This restaurant is only a block away from our home too! I wish it was more inviting and had better hours so there would be more customers there. Perhaps we'll just have to order take-out from there next time."

  • "I'm glad I found this Indian restaurant. The food is delicious and the service is excellent. Most of the time when I dined at an Indian reataurant it takes can take over 20 mins before I get my order but here at Clay Oven the food came in 5-10 mins. There's plenty of street parking in front do the restaurant too! A great bonus and a hard find in Collingswood. I will definitely go back and it's not even around the corner for me!"

  • "Clay Oven Palace is a few blocks away from the hassle of "downtown" Collingswood. It is easy to park and the atmosphere is pleasant and quiet. The staff is eager to please and willing to adapt entrees to fit the preferences of diners. BYOB. Definitely a place to go back to."
