Klay Oven presents Indian cuisine cooked via a centuries-old tradition—harnessing the flavor-trapping powers of a clay oven (tandoor) or an Indian Wok (karhai) to create healthy, low-fat sub-continental sustenance. Launch into lunching with the matar aloo samosa, a puff-pastry filled with a delectable mixture of peas, potatoes, mango seasoning, and spices ($5), or fire up feasting with the masala papadam, featuring savory lentil wafers with coriander, fresh mint, and special seasoning ($3). Tandoori-cooked offerings include jheenga bemisaal, a team of tiger prawns synchronized-swimming in yogurt, ginger, and spices, and banded together by a buttery garlic paste ($26), while a convoy of karhai-cooked, stir-fried suppers include lamb and chicken dishes. For herbivoyeurs, Klay Oven summons the powers of sky and earth to create vegetatrian plates as well.

Nudge yourself into Klay Oven's elegant and welcoming dining space and enjoy Indian bread such as naan ($3), parathas ($3), or roti ($2) between bites from the Bombay-sized bounty. Reservations are required—set aside your application for mayor of Chicago and call ahead to save seats for a meal at Klay Oven Restaurant.

Klay Oven Restaurant

There's nowhere for heat to escape within a tandoori oven. Inside this sweltering cylinder of clay, chefs stoke the flames to cook everything from flat naan bread to three-dimensional lamb and chicken. It's fitting then, that Klay Oven Restaurant has a name echoing this traditional Indian method of cooking—and a bite into anything on the menu proves that there's no need to alter these time-tested techniques. Popular orders include tandoori murg, a dish of stir-fried meat simmered in gravy. Outside of the oven, chefs use homemade cheese cubes to cook paneer dishes and fill puffed samosas with lamb, peas, ginger, and coriander.

Of course, all of this happens away from customers' hungry eyes. They're too busy sipping mango lassi beneath the dining room's golden tin ceilings, or perhaps drinking something more potable at the solid wood bar. At select times, Klay Oven also serves buffets (both of the vegan and meaty variety).
