The lunch buffet is great with the typical lineup of veggie and nonveg items. Come back in the evening for a variety of Dosas, vada and other South Indian specialties in addition to the standard fare. I speak a smattering of Hindi...no luck here...the staff primary language is Telegu. South Indian. Such a wonderful rare change from the usual Indian.

This is the best Indian restaurant in at least a couple of hundred miles. We lived in India so have discerning palates when it comes to Indian cuisine. The chicken masala is delicious, the dal is red and I prefer black but still tasty. Their naan is excellent and we either eat in or take out. Considering the price you... More

We tried Indian food for the first time.. Loved it. Everything was so good. We ordered one lamb meal and shared it and there were still left overs. Very delicious excellent service. Highly recommended!

I recommend this place to anyone who likes Indian food... or anyone who has never tried it but is willing to give it a go. The people are friendly, the food is DELICIOUS and the prices are good. I am partial to the Butter Chicken, but pretty much anything that sounds good is going to be just as good as... More

We stopped in to Priya because of its proximity to our motel and an excellent Yelp rating. We rarely have Indian food, but when all was said and done, we were delighted with our dining experience. The menu's offerings are wide and varied, and our server was most courteous and patient while explaining the dishes. The menu offers a la... More

I had the Chana masala thali and my dinner partner had a chicken tikka with spiced rice dish she raved about. Delicious! Very flavorful and great presentation. Service was excellent and it was a friendly family run business. We definitely plan on going back.

We came to Chico for a wedding, wanted to stay for the Indian food. We were hiding out from our horrible experience across the Street at the American Inn, and were warmly greeted by friendly folks, good smells, and happy appearing customers. The servers took their time to explain their food to us, ingredients, and origin, etc. Based on the... More

Such a colorful and happy restaurant, with traditional menu items from both north and southern India. My favorite thing here is the naan, but the chicken tikka masala, saag chicken, and dosas are fantastic too.

I chose this place based on the Yelp reviews and was not disappointed. Service was great - you can tell it is family owned and honored. Curries, naan, chicken tikka, rice and mango lassi were all delicious. Chicken tikka wasn't as spicy as I'm used to but it was creamy and amazing nonetheless. The mango lassi was so good I... More

We had the opportunity to have the buffet lunch at Priya. The service is great and the food was tasty, plentiful and fresh. The variety was very good and constant checking by staff to be sure all choices was available was well appreciated. Well worth a revisit on our travels to Chico. Well done.
