Best Indian in town

The lunch buffet is an excellent deal at under $10. I recommend going early during the lunch service to ensure freshness on items like the naan and pakoras. The staff are very nice and attentive to their customers. I have never been disappointed here!

The buffet is a real bargain with a very wide selection of delicious freshly cooked Indian foods constantly replenished by what appear to be Indian cooks who are grand mothers. Despite a bargain price, the setting is elegant and a good place to bring guests.

We really liked Priya the last time we were in Chico, so we went back this week. My husband loved the Lamb curry and I enjoyed the Tandoori mixed grill. service was very attentive. when my husband ordered his food extra spicy our waiter brought out samples of more dips he thought we should try. Limited but adequate wine menu.

One of my daughters and I had the lunch buffet. We both really enjoyed everything. My other daughter ordered off the menu and really enjoyed her meal as well. Our water glasses were kept filled. Service was quite good. This is definitely a go to again place.

I have been here twice now, once for dinner, and recently for the buffet lunch. The buffet is a wide variety of foods, sauces, and naan. It is all you can eat and I wish I could eat more it was so good. I love this place!

Best Indian Food in Chico and on par with the best places in the Bay Area. The lunch buffet really stands out and dinner is great too.

We've been to Priya maybe a dozens times since they opened and the food and service has always been consistently good. I especially like the thin crisps, served with the white, green, and red sauces as an appetizer, the Indian beers, the little fried dough ball with sugar sauce for dessert, and the selection of curries and tandoori dishes. It's... More

We often visit Priya for the lunch buffet. It's about $10 per person ($5 for children). They have a good selection of choices (pakoras, naan, butter chicken, curry vegetables, saag paneer, etc.) Whether you are vegetarian or not, if you like Indian Food, the lunch buffet will hit your spot. The service is always good and the restaurant very clean.... More

Limited selection, usually fresh, and decent service, this place does give decent exposure to Indian cuisine for a city the size of Chico.
