Went there for the first time today. Good selection of food for their buffet. The goat was very tender and full of flavor. Two types of rice, the tika marsala was real good! So were the curries. You have of vegetarian or meat and they serve Indian beer! I'd go back.

Nice buffet dinner....peaceful atmosphere, music not too loud, servers are pleasant and attentive. The food was nice and fresh with a large variety. Id have given fhe place five stars but for two things : the tandoori chicken was overcooked and dry, and a couple of the dishes with sauce (curry and tikka masala) were VERY salty. And I actually...

Most Indian buffets put out sort of mid-range Indian options....good but not great. Priya is distinguished in that they have a variety of buffet options (e.g. not just the standard dal, tandoori chicken, chicken tikka masala, etc). They usually have something that I've never tried or at least something that I don't routinely get so I have the opportunity to... More

We recently ate here for the first time. Hm. It was very authentically Indian. I will give it that. And it seemed like a family-style place. But whoa, we went at 5 pm and practically had to beg to not order "buffet." The food we did get was, at least, absolutely rock-solid and mouth-watering as well as a good price.... More

To be honest this didn't look too promising. A bit shabby, artificial flowers... Anyway I had a matter paneer thali and every bit of it was excellent. Really tasty, clearly distinghished flavours. Really several steps above the average. Service a bit random but go with it. Great value too.

I was hungry and had the luncheon buffet. Tandori chicken was good. Chicken marsala was OK. They served goat, which was good. A vegetable dish was good and spicy. There were four types of chutney. The mint and peanut chutneys ere spicy and were my favorites. The marasla tea was excellent as was the yogurt to cool the hot spices.

Enjoyed the food, decor and service. Beware of filling up on the appetizers! Good thing we had a fridge and microwave for the leftovers. Short walk from Holiday Inn on University.

My spouse has been to India many times, and he has said this restaurant is as close to going to a posh Indian Restaurant in India. Was excellent food, great price, and great service. This is a very Non-Americanized restaurant. Get the Thali Dinner. It is the best value, and gives you a variety sampler style of Indian food.
