The Clay Oven Restaurant has now been serving in The Gambia genuine Indian food to eat in or take-away for many years now and is one of the best Indian restaurants in Gambia. The main restaurant is exquisitely furnished and has a seating capacity for 70 diners.

There are also private rooms for up to 20 people as well as wheelchair access from the side entrance.

In 1992 “The Sunday People” described “The Clay Oven” as “…the best Indian restaurant in Africa….”

For over 20 years your host, Vimal, has welcomed discerning gourmands to this quiet and efficient eating house to enjoy genuine Indian cuisine, and also, in no small way, has re-educated people who expect the menu to describe food as “Madras” “Vindaloo” or “Korma”.

There is more to the spectacular variety of Indian food than could ever be summed up in a few trite words.

And there is much more to The Clay Oven than can be conveyed by the word “restaurant”.

Lunch in the Tamarind Garden is from Monday to Saturday between 12.00 p.m. to 3.00 p.m. and for dinner from 6pm onwards.

The wonderful a la carte menu offered also from noon each day, but until late, late in the evening.
