The food is very good. The restaurant strangely has very few diners, though. I've been there twice, and each time it was just me or me and a friend.

Everything was amazing. Dahi poori was top notch, but tikka masala was very bad. It did not taste anything like tika masala.

The service was friendly and attentive. Ordered the Bombay sampler which had the tandoori chicken, lamb korma, and the chicken tikki masala. I liked the lamb the most. The other dishes were fine but fairly standard. The naan was fresh and quite good.

No question that the Indian food at both the Little India restaurants and the Mint Indian restaurant are more tasty and flavorful than that of the Bombay Clay Oven. I eat Indian food all the time as it is one of my most favorite cuisines. I went back to the Bombay Lay Oven tonight because I had a coupon for a free entree up to $14.00. I ordered the Lamb Dopyaza, naan and a mango lassi. Both times I have eaten at the Bombay Clay Oven previously I got a very small portion of rice, piled in a round triangle shape. Not nearly enough rice to go with the main course. Being that there should be more rice than what I got for the serving of lamb, I asked for some more rice. The waitress never said a thing about there being an extra charge for a single small scoop of rice. I did not find out until the check arrived that I was charged $2.99 for this one extra scoop of rice! Are you kidding me? I was the last customer in there tonight! They will throw out the rest of the rice, as they will make a fresh batch tomorrow! It seems to me that they serve such a small portion of rice so that they can then charge another $3.00 for enough rice to go with the entree. Whenever I eat at the Little India restaurants, as well as the Mint restaurant they always make sure you have enough rice, even offering you a to-go box of rice to take home, without ever charging extra for it! Since the food is tastier at those two restaurants compared to the Bombay Clay Oven, I will not bother going out of my way to go to Cheery Creek to get mediocre Indian food again. Simply put, there is better Indian food in Denver than at the Bombay Clay Oven!

Entertainer was fun, but want a fan if the food. I ordered chicken Korma and it wasn't like any Korma I've ever had.

Do not waste your money. We ordered and it took over an hour to arrive. It was $35 for 2 dinners and the portions were tiny and not good at all. Very disappointed.

The packaging was open when I received it and the sauce was all over the bag. Food was okay. But not as good as when I dined in last time. Thank you

From Our Editors

Behind Bombay Clay Oven’s castle-like façade lies a gateway to the Mughlai style of Indian cuisine, which features yogurt, cream, fruit, and a wide range of spices lending silky textures and delicately distinct flavors to roasted meats and vegetables. In the kitchen, kebabs of lamb and beef sizzle in the eatery’s traditional tandoor oven, balanced by a lengthy bill of vegetarian fare.

On Fridays and Saturdays, Bombay’s dining room fills with live music, which diners can enjoy from the confines of Middle Eastern–style booths draped in curtains and padded with basmati rice.
