Very slow service, which made for an excruciatingly long meal. Cold food. Bright lights. Food on the floor. Not a great experience.
Pretty rude server (he looked hungover...) and the server-in-training would say she was going to take care of something and would disappear for what seemed like a long time. Two times, I saw her some back into the dining area empty handed and then apparently remembered what she was going to do, e.g. bring dessert menus, and left again and returned again. About 15 minutes went by with 3 requests for one guest to get a second beer.
Very helpful staff.
The Clay Pit is a always a great choice especially when vegetarians and meat eaters are dining together. The food was delicious as always and we sat in the quieter downstairs dining room. Our food took a little longer to arrive than we would have liked this visit, but that isn't a great surprise on a busy Saturday night.
Great food, terrible waiter. Threw plates on table.
I've never had a bad meal. I've taken lots of friends and everyone has always enjoyed their meal.
We love it & would go more often if it were closer to us!
Clay Pit was amazing and we can’t wait to go back! We went on a New Year’s Eve double date. It was easy to get a reservation even when numerous other restaurants were booked and the food, service, and atmosphere was perfect. My husband even decided he really wanted a steak even though we were at an Indian restaurant. That was one of the best steaks we’ve had! This is definitely a new favorite when we’re in Austin!!
We have visited this restaurant several times and had wonderful meals and great service over the past two years but this time was different. The service was horrific. We sat waiting to be acknowledged. We waited for our food for a longer than acceptable time. The food was very good but not hot just kind of warm. We waited 25 min for our check. This was my 2nd birthday celebration at the Clay Pit and probably my last.
I'm not an expert on Indian food, but this was very good. I brought my daughter and girlfriend who have never eaten Indian food before and they liked it. Our server was very nice as well..
