My first time eating Indian food, it was good.. I expected spicier, but it was flavorful. I enjoyed it. I wish my dish was hotter though (temperature)
Food was tasty however services was lacking from seating to being served. Would rate 5 stars if more waiting staff were present
Really understaffed and food is not as good as it used to be.
Food was uninspired, service was terrible. We were there during restaurant week and staff were clearly unprepared for the dinner rush, but also unremoseful about slow and poor service. Waiter poured an $8 bottle of beer so poorly that it overflowed and no compensation was offered.
I have eaten at Bombay Clay Oven before, but this time was for Denver Restaurant Week. There were gluten free options for all of the courses except for bread (naan) for my wife. Everything was delicious with excellent flavor and enjoyed the spice!
Great new dairy free menu! Awesome flavors,not comprised by change to other milk type recipes!! Great food!
Bombay Clay Oven offered a variety of authentic Indian dishes, well prepared, in an attractive restaurant with very good service. It is located in the fashionable Cherry Creek North district.
Indian cuisine is supposed to be a plethora of flavors with a complexity that stimulate the palate; not here. The food was bland and uninspiring. The raita was the best part of the meal. The samosa was cooked in oil that desperately needed to be changed. The benghan bharta was more like a tomato stew with some chili powder. I’ve had simmer sauces in a packet with more flavor
The service saved the meal. Marissa was kind, attentive and genuine. Thank you!
The lights feel like a conference room, bright and harsh.
I love Indian cuisine and I have been to many many different restaurants serving such fare in my day. I will not be back to this one and I recommend you follow suit.
First time here. Very enjoyable. Food and service both were better then some reviews we've seen suggested. Really recommend the Chicken Tikka Masala.
restaurant was not busy but service/kitchen was slow. food was good , but overpriced.
for a cherry creek north restaurant the decor was quite dated and bathrooms need some paint at least.
Honestly, the food's not really that tasty. There are many other Indian/Nepalese type of restaurants in the Denver/Boulder/Golden area that have tastier and more authentic food. Replace the kitchen crew!
This was our second trip to this restaurant, the previous trip was wonderful. This time we had issues getting service, we would order things and they seemed to have been forgotten. It took over an hour for the meals to be served. I feel like the issue was severe understaffing but I am not sure. The wait staff were nice and apologetic. I thought that considering all the difficulties with our visit the bill might be reduced or something apologetic. But ultimately they just did not charge us for the drinks that were ordered and not delivered til the end (in to-go cups).
Hire more people.
Veggie entrees good. Veggie sampler not much filling. Otherwise, very good.
Love the food so much! We couldn't decide what to order so we ordered 2 appetizer and four entrees for two of us. Lamb biryani, seafood curry, chicken tandoori, vegetable kadai, shrimp sauté, goat cheese canape and of course cheese and chili naan. Delicious! Can t wait to go back!
Food is good as it has been in the past. Service remains spotty especially with respect to timing and pacing.
Portions were a bit small, but delicious. They had the doors open in the evening... it was very cold. I asked them to shut the door, they shut one but kept and main door open. We left quickly after eating because we were too cold.
Best Indian Restaurant in Denver area! Staff was friendly. Mother's day was so special here.
wonderful menu of authentic Indian dishes; our primary service person had indepth knowledge of the ingredients and preparations for each dish, for our next reservation we'll request the "divan" seating for a cozy dining experience. Enjoyed the live music that complimented the atmosphere.
Visited this restaurant for the first time last week during Denver restaurant week. I had the chicken korma, it was very good and tender. My husband had fish goan to curry and loved it. The place is a lot of fun and the happy hours are very reasonable. We will definitely be visiting again in the future.
Both dishes we shared, a Shrimp with coconut sauce and Lamb Vindaloo were tasteless. The rice and cheese filled nan were not very good either. Very disappointed with food. It is an attractive restaurant in a great neighborhood.
My girlfriend & I went to their special Valentine's Day "Kama Sutra Dinner for Lovers". They do this only one time/year. It was a very special evening. The food & ambience were just outstanding. We'll do it again next year.
Good Indian food in a handsome setting. The service was slow the night we were there; not sure what the problem was in the kitchen, but once it arrived at our table, it was excellent. Bombay Oven provides the usual popular Indian dishes and does them well. The servers were very pleasant indeed; they couldn't have bee nicer. The problem was in the kitchen, but we never found out what it was.
Not particularly impressed. Food was ok--turned out to be better next day upon reheat. Not awful, but far from the best I've had.
Service left something to be desired--waiter was pretty decent, but they were understaffed. There were two hostesses (?) who seated us, came by for drinks, water, etc. but were not very attentive.
Meanwhile, the ambiance was underwhelming. Phone ringing constantly--who wants to hear that all night? And DH was seated next to a woman who just kept yammering loudly for the entire meal.
We hadn't visited Bombay Clay Oven in a few years, but chose to revisit us with an out-of-town guest from Chicago. The service was attentive, but not overbearing. The ambience, complete with zither player, was lovely. And the food was a wonderful as we recalled. We will return.
My partner went to dinner there for our 16 year anniversary. The service was great. The food was very tasty and the atmosphere was perfect for our celebration.
I had dinner with a friend, and everything about the evening was fantastic...the food was delicious, the mood was casual, and we felt the price was very reasonable. We will definitely be back!
Terrible food. Untrained servers. Would not return, nor recommend.
The food here is always excellent. This last visit was characterized by slow service perhaps because they were busier than usual. I especially appreciate the labelling of food for being gluten and dairy free -- and the extra help from wait staff to understand menu items and ingredients.
Just wonderful every time
I ordered the tea and I got sick when I got home. The tandoori chicken was not good. The chickpeas malasla was great
The kitchen couldn't sequence the food for our table. Repeatedly had to ask staff about our order. The kitchen seems to be in complete disarray. New staff who was running food from the kitchen couldn't even tell patrons what was on the plate. This place used to be decent Indian. Until they work out the kinks in kitchen and with staff, I would recommend avoiding.
The evening was delightful! We had great food, service, & music! The waitstaff was very attentive, the food delicious. We will look forward to our next visit!
Food is excellent. No doubt about that.
I wish they would invest in more servers. On a busy weekend night, service tends to be very slow and a bit frustrating.
Our waiter was exceptionally good to us. Our party met to eat and talk. It was quiet so we could speak in normal tones and hear each other. We were the last in the restaurant after lunch so we lingered and enjoyed the atmosphere, food and our conversation.
There's a feeling when you walk into a restaurant in the heart of cherry creek in the middle of the week for lunch.....and it's empty. Am I missing something? Does everyone know something that I don't? Should I get up and leave? The furniture is super old and worn out. The menus are crinkled and worn. The waiters are trying as hard as they can.....the food is good but can be much better.
Clearly the owner has decided to spend less and less on this place. This can be an awesome and unique place that I would go to regularly.
My wife and I were joking that this is the perfect place to be on chef Ramsey show.....
Good food and ambiance. Sit away from sitar if you want conversation.
Well, it was empty when we got there - not a good sign. It didn't get much better. I was with a group of people raised in India. They told me they could tell that the chef was not native, as the food was not authentic and just ok. I am not as good with comparison, but the food for me was also only average. Service was pretty good, had to wait alot more than I wanted.
Really enjoyed the food at Bombay Clay oven. Will definitely go again when in Cherry Creek area.
The food was below average - just a lot of the same spice slathered over the various options; this place is for those who think they want Indian and have no clue what it can be. It is old style with lots of the same western Indian dishes like every other average Indian restaurant. They just add heat to cover lack of taste or creativity
This restaurant is always consistently good. Staff is pleasant and knowledgeable about ingredients, and will bring a very small sample of the sauce if need be to make sure you will enjoy your meal.
Such a treat to know you will get a good meal or small plates every time!!!!
