Excellent restaurant. The owner is there and is very courteous to customers. The food is delicious and authentic-especially if you want to try new tastes. Can be very spicy so be careful and choose mild if you want to. The mango custard is delicious after...a spicy dinner.More

It’s been a long time since our last visit to Branson, so hubby and I were very happy to see this gem of a restaurant was not only open but booming! Arriving at 5 pm on a weeknight and most of the tables were full...was a good sign. We were promptly seated and our order taken. Our food arrived quickly even though everything is indeed freshly prepared. The owner/ host was gracious and attended to our needs in such a warm and inviting manner. The food was so flavorful…we ordered a couple of starters including vegetable samosas chat and Clay Oven special which was a samosa on a flavorful bed of chick peas. Our main courses were ginger chicken and Lamb Tika Masala with some yummy garlic naan. The ginger chicken and the lamb tika were so, so flavorful! Our portions were very generous. We took home leftovers and savored those wonderful flavors the next day! In addition we were given extra tamarind sauce (oooh that is good stuff) for the leftovers and a yummy mango pudding. We felt so welcomed by the staff and enjoyed our meal so very much…wish we lived closer! This jewel of India should not be missed!More

In our world of Fast Foods and Food Chains, how wonderful it is to stumble across a “Mom & Pop” eatery giving it their all and succeeding! Thanks for bringing this culinary delight to Branson. We dined on Butter Chicken, Chicken Marsala and cheese Naan...Bread but the menu is full of delights. Beer, Wine & Coke products are available too. Located across Hwy 76 from Walmart, it’s easy to miss as it’s nestled in a small strip mall. Housing only about 11 tables (5 booths and 6 tables, the line was long on a Saturday night and noisy, but soooo worth the wait. The owner is humorous and attentive as are the waitstaff. If you’re looking for something different, seek out this restaurant. Carry out is available if you just can’t stand to wait Travels With MarleneMore

You must enjoy the meals from India. My wife and I have eaten many times at this restaurant. I cannot remember the names of all the dishes we have tried, but they are all fantastic. You can try the sauces in mild, medium or hot...and spicy. We also love the bread available. We have tried several breads, but like the cheese bread the best. This restaurant is rather small, but the decor is beautiful with fine dinner ware and cloth napkins. Enjoy the experience!More

India Clay Oven is our favorite restaurant. The food and the service are exceptional. The family treats you like you are their family. They are the best restaurant in Branson.

Authentic Indian at reasonable prices! It was a relief to see a non-chain restaurant that wasn’t overpriced, as most of Branson dinner places are! We ordered the Chicken Lentil soup, naan with garlic butter, Chicken Tikka Masala, and Lamb Rogan Josh. Each dish was excellent....Portions are not oversized but you could still eat family-style if you wanted as they are very rich in flavor. They offer your basic beverages and some Indian drinks. The atmosphere is not fancy, but comfortable and clean. Don’t miss out on this Branson gem!!!More

I had dinner here twice and both times everyone was professional, friendly and attentive. The dishes were all excellent, from butter chicken, pakoras and garlic naan to samosa chat, dal makhni and chilli chicken with parantha. Fantastic place, you won't be disappointed!

We ordered takeout. Malai kofta and lamb vindaloo and Mulligitawny soup. Staff was friendly and wore masks and patrons did as well when not seated. Very busy on a Friday night. Place seemed clean. I would go again.

We are new to Indian food but wanted to try this place since it was rated so highly. It definitely did not disappoint! We are a family of 6 and we came in a bit late but they were still so friendly and happy to...serve us. They helped us with what to order since we were newbies. Everything they recommended was delicious. We started with the cheese and garlic naan. Delicious especially with the sauces! We tried the chicken korma and lamb Korma….it had a cashew cream sauce. This was our favorite dish! The tiki masala was so delicious too. We will definitely be back next time we are in Branson. You definitely need to try it!More

This Indian restaurant is on my top list of Favorites. Nice Restaurant with Excellent Flavor. Would eat here again if in Branson in the future. Only drawback was that we got there just before 2pm not realizing they closed at 2pm for a break and...reopen at 5pm. We could have ordered take out but instead went back and dined in at the 5pm time.More

Iffy! My son is allergic to peanuts and nuts. He also cannot consume legumes and Indian food has that.
