Clay Oven Cuisine Of India

15435 Jeffrey Road, Ste 116 Irvine, CA 92618 | Irvine | 949-552-2851

Location Description:

What makes the Clay Oven stand out is the way it uses the traditional tandoori tools to expand upon the cuisine. You can't find a better swordfish in Orange County: It's so tender it flakes apart at the mere hint of a fork.
