“Great Indian food in Juneau? Suprisingly, yes”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 March 2014

I am a huge fan of Indian food. When I moved to Juneau, I rued the fact that there would be no Indian food to put in my mouth hole. Then suddenly, magically born from my fervent wishes, comes Clay Oven. I never expected that this hotel restaurant would be any good, but with a co-worker's recommendation and my desire to eat chicken tikka masala right now, I went after a hard day's work. The blueberry lassi was a little eh and the nann was slightly under cooked (easily fixed), but everything still tasted great. And I have to admit, the chicken tikka masala was one of the best I've had. I'm very happy that I went and I will definitely come back.

“Delicious and great service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 November 2013 via mobile

Went in for a late dinner, there weren't many tables so service was super attentive and helpful, both the waitress (she went over the entire menu with us) and bartender. The food was awesome and came out pretty quick. The chef even came out to see how everything was. We told him how much we loved it, especially the fresh garlic naan, and he came back out with a complimentary double order to go! Will definitely be back.

“Oh, the possibilities...”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 September 2013

THIS PLACE HAS POTENTIAL!!! Whoever is cooking the food knows their stuff. I travel internationally, enjoying Indian food all over, and the food I had last night was impressive. As I was visiting Juneau, not sure if their regular full wait staff was out on an emergency but having only one 'mature' person to cover that number of tables didn't work. Her heartfelt apologies regarding how long it took to get water and silverware, how long it took to get our food (which came out very tasty but not hot), how long it took to get our bill, and how long it took to run our credit card - all got a little old. Looking around, it was obvious that there were some other diners who expected a slightly higher level of service. Bar service (which had to be paid separately) was prompt - perhaps the bar tender could be enlisted to help wait tables (for a price) when the restaurant starts to fill. As you read most of the comments, the same thread runs through them - the food is very good. The single waitress is a very nice person but this treasure will crash and burn without better service.

“Authentic Indian Food....Yummy”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 September 2013

My husband and I ate at the Clay Oven 2 nights in a row. The food is tasty and with ample portions. I had the tandoori chicken and curried lamb. My husband had the Lamb Saag and chicken curry. The naan is excellent. We met the chef and discussed our likes and food allergies and he was more than willing to alter his menu to please. The menu changes almost daily depending on his fresh market finds. The chai is absolutely delicious. The bartender, Nancy, is a wealth of information on things to see and do in Juneau. We would definitely try this place again when in Juneau.
