Addison >Clay Pit
Stay Away!. We thought this restaurant was affiliated with Clay Pit in Austin, TX. It was originally owned and operated by the same owner, however, it has changed hands twice since then. My husband and I gave it a try last night and ordered the exact entrees we order at the Austin Clay Pit. Much to our dismay, our "Indian" food was swimming in some sort of bland gravy sauce and had no flavor whatsoever. We have eaten lots of Indian food in many cities and have never had Indian food that tasted like this. The rice was Minute Rice and was room temperature and tasteless. On top of this, our tablecloth had not been changed since the last guest, and had food and a few hairs on it. We ate only one bite of our food and told the manager that we were leaving.....he kindly told us not to worry about the bill. That is the only good thing I can say about our experience.
Not worth being Indian food...or food for that matter. let me begin by saying, do not eat here. We ordered delivery from Clay Pit in order to impress a couple of our Indian friends. The food looked like baby poo and even though we ordered a variety of dishes, they all looked and tasted the same. Our Indian friends said, "blah" after trying the food and that Clay Pit is NOT Indian food. I hope that no one eats from here. The naan was the only thing I ended up semi enjoying. To wrap this up, I read the reviews from this site quite often, but never commented on restaurants before. The only reason I created an account is to warn people to stay away from this place. I hope I and the others who share the same feelings are heard by you, do not eat here.
Everything tasted like cream. All dishes are oily and cold. The dishes are not made to the right Indian recipe, esp fish chilli, dal,etc., chicken(s) are the meat available most of the times. Not much verities. It is not worth to pay $13/ adult for their crap. They rip you off if you are not pay attention on your bill. The advertised menu will not be available when you make it there.They will charge for kids even under 4 (unlike the ad). they "automatically' charge your tip (18%) for your convenience. Very poor service!
Pros: good location, okay with the inside looks,
Cons: bad food, expensive, not much verities, poor service.
Cons: bad food, not worth my money
DIDN'T BOTHER TO STICK AROUND.
WORST SERVICE EVER EXPERIENCED...
My husband and I had made reservations for Valentine's weekend to try out Indian food for the first time. When we arrived the hostess was away from the podium helping the staff which should've been our first red flag. She finally approaches us to tell us that our "table isn't ready" even though we had reservations. We waited in the bar for 10 minutes and then finally got seated. We sat in a dark corner next to the kitchen where a hand full of servers were running around like chickens without heads. The HOSTESS brought us our water and bread. My husband and I sat unattended for 25 minutes! Nobody came by to take our orders or to even introduce themselves as our waiter. I looked around and realized many other couples that had been seated long before us were still sitting with their menus. My husband decided to get up and leave to eat elsewhere because we wanted to eat before midnight! We walked passed a couple of staff and the hostess and nobody tried to stop us or at least apologize. Worst Valentine's experience EVER...
Not at all authentic!. the food was bland...and there was a belly dancer all over the customers! not a place i wanted to be with my parents and kids...not somewhere i'm returning!
Horrible food. DIRTY place. BAD SERVICE.
everything tasted the same.....UNHEALTHY AND FULL OF CREAM couldnt even taste the masala because my mouth was full of cream.
other indian restaurants are better.
unhygienic, poor service. We found a hair in our food...To add to that when we mentioned that to the person serving the food..he told us he can assure us it's not his for sure and then when we returned the entree we were left with bill on our table without any replacement of the ordered item...indeed *Professional..Thank God we still have multiple Indian restaurants in dallas area to decide which ones to avoid next time..
My first Lunch here, left me lacking...........
I have read many favorable/highly rated reviews for the Clay Pit before; however, I think they were primarily for the dinner. I took a friend here for lunch about two weeks ago. They had never tried Indian cuisine before, and I thought it would be a great introduction. Although the lunch was ok, it was just that?.ok. It was not bad; it just was not very good. Many of the dishes lacked the distinct seasoning that make Indian cuisine such a treat.
Again, this was lunch. Their dinner entree?s could be spectacular, or I may have come on an off day. I am going to try the Clay Pit again and will let you know. If you are in Addison and have an insatiable desire for Indian (based on my first encounter), Clay Pit will fit the bill.
Not Bad. I went to this restaurent on tuesday night with my buddies. My first impression was it is a restaurent like Tabla in manhattan but once i open menu it proved wrong. We ordered some vegitarian and non veggie food and quantities are adiquate for asingle person. Vegitarian tastes good but Non-Veg they may need to improve. Over all clean environment and food is pricey for that quality and quantity. Service is just ordinary.
A great surprise. We ate at the restaurant for lunch on day and they had a buffet. It was killer. The seasoning was nice and not over done, the food on the buffet was fresh and cook just right, not like some where it sits and overcooks. The staff was very pleasent and the place was packed.
