My dining companion and I went on a Monday evening with no reservation, and had a 20-25 minute wait for a table.

I ordered my dish medium spicy, and as glad that I had not ordered it hot. I've got a decent spice tolerance, though not nearly as great as some of my friends. The dish had a kick to it, but it was very flavorful, and the spiciness was balanced out nicely by the roti.

Overall, Clay Pit is a bit on the pricey side, but has a good selection, helpful waitstaff, and a nice atmosphere. It's a good choice for special occasions.
