    Excellent food and friendly service. Was expecting middle eastern flavours going into the dinner but was (pleasantly) surprised at the strong influence of Thai and Vietnamese flavours that went into each dish. Favourite dish was the swordfish. The chilli crab is great-be prepared to get your hands dirty though. Only slight criticism is that the food took quite a while to come out.

    Great atmosphere. Great service. Great food. Get the chilli crab and mussel dish. And the fried squid. Delicious!

    Great atmosphere with live music and staff very friendly, but my colleague's portion of the Kingfish cutlet was so paltry and small I gave him half of my dish. I was so embarrassed because I chose the location based on current reviews. My Fish Plate was comprised of small whole fish that didn't have much taste and I spent a lot of time 'fishing' bones out of my mouth. It was interesting to note that all other eateries in Hardware Lane were overflowing, whereas Claypots was not - it may be the locals know something I didn't! Although we are both on diets, we decided to have dessert to fill in our tummies. The desserts were good as was the Turkish coffee - they only type of coffee they serve.

    Food came after a long wait and they forgot one of the order, which was disappointing ????

    Entree should have been served on 2 x separate plates as they were 2 x separate orders I was waiting for mine to come but didn't get it due to both orders on one plate so mine got eaten did they tell us? No did they offer to replace my entree? No bad business should have still given me my entree but no offer made

    While the food was fresh and well cooked, 3 dishes I ordered were not available, even though we were the only group of 8 in the restaurant. This could have been conveyed at the beginning of ordering.

    Had the meze plate for entree which was not worth $18. The barramundi wings tasted good except that it was way too salty. If less salt, it would have been perfect. The swordfish dish was also good but too salty.

    Cute restaurant but table was tiny and the plates are really large, made dining uncomfortable. Food was ok, very seasoned. I probably wouldn’t go back.,

    The mark of a good restaurant is not responding to great food, but how they deal with issues. The oysters fresh and succulent, the scallops brilliant and the spaghetti marinara about the best in Melb. The octopus skewers tough and inedible, after being so tender last visit. Despite feedback to two staff at their request, nothing was done. Disappointing
