THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Klay Oven Restaurant Review

: Of all the Indian restaurants in Chicago, this is among the most luxuriously appointed. The menu concentrates on the more well-known and popular Indian dishes, but the kitchen obviously knows how to flavor the food. They also make first-rate breads, a solid mulligatawny and seemingly endless tandoori dishes (we suggest the lemon-marinated lamb). The menu also features an array of stir-fried dishes like spicy coconut chicken curry or mahi mahi with cilantro in mint sauce. Admittedly, we often find Indian desserts come off as boring. But here, the ras malai (pudding made with milk, honey and pistachio) is terrific. Note that there is a lull between lunch and dinner service. Another location is at 734 Lake St., Oak Park, 708-386-3999.
