Great food and fantastic service. The restaurant is full every day so best arrive about 6-7pm if you haven't booked ahead as you will need to wait for a table afterwards. Food is first class, best curry I've ever had!!! Everything is cooked in front of you in an open kitchen. Service and ambience of place is really good. Restaurant... More

I have eaten in tons of Indian restaurants (even in India) and have never come across one as good as this, we are only in Portugal for a week and have already decided to go back here again this week. very busy place so, best to book a table. Staff very good here as well.

On a low season Monday when most restaurants were closed, we decided to enter Clay Oven just because of the TripAdvisor rating. It turned out to be the best Indian we ever had . Amazing starters and a very good curry. If we had to say something negative it would be that it could have more prawns in our curry... More

From the moment you enter everything is up to par. Very nice decor, excellent service and great food. Apps, main entree drinks and tip came to 35 euros. Would highly recommend open evenings only reservations suggested.
