awesome 7/17/2010

I have been a regular customer to priya and I always find the food just like my mom used to cook back in India.They have homemade recipe style more of a vegetarian favoured lunch and dinner buffets on saturday and non-veg lover's buffets on sunday.They have a wide variety of options in their buffet which i like a lot and may the best reason i never got bored of going there.Cheers to priya !!!!!which reminds me home. Pros: mouth watering food more

I would go there again 7/8/2010

I believe i was there on Saturday and there was a huge Buffet. I havent seen so many items before especially Andhra items for a long time. I liked pretty much everything except one or two dishes. I loved their Biryani mmmmmm my mouth is watering now.....Well i would certainly go there again. Pros: Typical Andhra Food Cons: one or two items were not good. more

Priya Indian Cuisine 5/18/2010

It seems that almost any kind of food has it's "chains". From Olive Garden to Starbucks for coffee it's always tastes the same. I have never found this to be true with Indian food. If there is a chain, I am not aware of it which is wonderful because it means that the restaurants are privately owned. I visited Priya recently and was treated to Indian cuisine that was a treat for the senses. I ordered the Chicken Tika Masala, garlic nan, and a yogurt drink. Everything was as I expected it to be. Delicious. I like my food just a little spicy and they made certain not to overdo it. One pet peave I have is atmosphere. I hate going into a Mexican or Indian or Italian restaurant only to hear top 40 music being played. If it's a Mexican restaurant I want Mariachi Music. I am happy to say that Priya was playing Indian music. It helps add to the experience. I will happily return to Priya any time. more

Priya 3/27/2010

I wanted to comment on mayuri's post but could not because it was to long... If you notice most people are not complaining about the food. I'm sure we understand food will taste different depending on who cooks it. But most people complained about the lack of taste. I complained mostly about being charged the same amount of money for awful food and half the amount. "...might be some of our competitors becuase no one takes time to write a good review and such a long review as people write the bad reviews" This says something about the business, and its childish. How do you think yelp started?? People like sharing what they like and telling other people " don't go to that place because the food is bad!" That what a review is! People like giving options. I think the point of the reviews is maybe priya was great 10 years ago, but its not now. Maybe you should work on that? more

Good Indian Food! 12/19/2009

Family owned with a large clientele of Indian food lovers make me comfortable eating there. We like to eat out at typical American holidays and they are always open for Christmas when other restaurants are shut down. Pros: Good food and large buffet of quality items. Cons: Personality of servers are subdued but there when needed. more

halaal 11/30/2009

I have personally enquired about it, it is 100% halaal, they have this awesome hyderabadi biryani i really liked that one it is one of my favourites. I would recommend to go to buffet because they have a huge variety of dishes..... I pretty much liked everything especially the Dahi vada on the buffet....... I would certainly recommend this place because for halaal and good tasty food... Pros: everthing Cons: nothing more

good food low price 11/23/2009

it is one of best restaurant i have visited so far good food but very low price biryani was great Pros: it is one of best food ever i tasted Cons: finding it will be difficult more

Awesome Food & Service 10/4/2009

Very good South/North Indian Buffet introduced on this weekend. As they are new to buffet in weekends(friday & saturday dinner) they served it with fantastic items... Their Dum biryanies are very special... many many n many more iteams in buffet. i wish to say very longest buffet in AZ. Its a family restaturant, u feel like u eat in your home & there servies is so friendly natured. compared to other resturants in AZ less in price, more in taste with selective number of spices. I am from london and my friends suggested me to visit PRIYA in Tempe, i really enjoyed my holiday food in PRIYA.. Never wait guys, RUSH RUSH.../ Cons: No Drawbacks more

I love this place 8/15/2009

We have being going to Priya for the past few years. We go there at least 12 times a year or even more. The family is very friendly and the food is excellent. Wonderful little Mom and Pop place. Pros: excellent South Indian food & buffet Cons: None more

Excellent Indian food, nice mom and pop restaurant, tasty buffet and dinner menu 1/26/2009

This is one of the best Indian restaurants I've tried, we've eaten both the dinner menu and the buffet. They have amazing tandoori chicken and the tikka kabob plate, aloo gobi, and chana masala are awesome! My husband loves their stewed goat. Although the seleciton at the lunch buffet is a bit limited, I have always found the food very fresh and delicious. Don't believe the bad reviews, I've read a lot of restaurant reviews and it sounds like these were rude customers. If you are rude to the staff and are wasteful, you will not get good treatment, and NO I do not work for the restaurant! I've eaten here many times over 8 years and I've never been treated badly or experienced "bad food". As with any buffet, if you come at the end of service, shortly before they close it up, the food is not going to be as fresh, but it's certainly never been "bad" or "spoiled". The owners seem friendly and pleasant to me. I'd recommend this place to anyone who likes good Indian food. Pros: Excellent food, not a chain, good to support local non-chain restaurants Cons: Buffet choices are a bit limited, more selection would be nice more

Worst worst worst! 10/5/2008

Hands down the worst Indian restaurant in the Phoenix area! I have been living in Tempe for almost 8 years now and I know all the Indian restaurants. I have been to Priya only twice and I regretted eating here both times. Here is an example of their service. We went to their buffet section for a second helping and took a second plate. The owner stared at us and put up a sign that said "dont waste plates". If anyone involved with the restaurant is reading this - then here is a piece of advice - let the customers EAT IN CLEAN PLATES!!! Thats the point of a buffet. Then while we were eating, another waiter came up to our table and simply picked up our food and left, without even asking whether we were going to eat it. Then they put up another sign that says "dont waste food". OK - so here is another question for you idiots from Priya - will you charge me less if I eat less? !!! Oh and then the food - anyone with a hell of a lot vegetable oil, chicken and some vegetables can cook what they served. It was basically oil, oil and more oil and some chicken and vegetables in between! Needless to say - it sucked. Pros: Nothing Cons: Everything more

cold food left over from lunch was served for dinner, very bad experience !! 9/11/2008

We were very excited by reading the ratings, and went there for dinner. Our 1st mistake was we were not speaking the Telugu (or was it tamil / malyalam / kannada?) language. They speak good english, but customers speaking their language were treated better. Our 2nd mistake was we ordered a "thaali" type of curries. Those came with all sorts of side dishes of curries which were the left overs from lunch menu. The rice was ice-cold !!.. Even the main curries we ordered were having cold vegetables inside, only the gravy was warm. We could have ignored these small issues, but the food was completely tasteless. Still the owner came and asked "everything okkay sir?" .. I was so fuming, but my wife asked me to keep calm & remain polite. All in all, very bad experience. Will never go again. Even if you are a raving fan of their buffet lunch, at least do not visit for dinner - unless you have liked whatever you ate in the morning. For sure you will be served with those same dishes. Cons: cold food, tasteless, indifference to customers more

Good dinner food, not lunch. 8/1/2008

I went twice for restuarant, one at dinner time and one at lunch time. Dinner time it was good. But lunch the options were more, but I wouldn't recommend it to people. I would recomment people going for dinner and trying out the biranyi stuff. and If you would like some malas dosa or idle. it is a good place. I would seariously not suggest people trying out the lunch buffer option at all..... Ramesh. Pros: good location, seating's ,service . Good dinner food. Cons: Lunch buffet , I would'nt recommend. more

Excellent ...Feels like to be having home food :) 6/29/2008

This is one of the best places to have some delicious, mouth watering , spicy and most importantly INDIAN food. Atleast mutton biryani looks and tastes like biryani and not like fried rice with tomatoes and all unwanted things in it. Guys dont care and dont mind abt bad reviews. Have a look and taste the items can't resist going there another time. MOreover I am going for lunch today and I am keeping myself hungry to have a grt buffet. May God bless all bad reviewers a sense for good taste for food .. hehehe Pros: Food, Ambience, People Cons: Not sure b'coz i go for buffet and thats a self service more

Aweful spoiled food. Never visit this place.. 5/18/2008

This place has really downhill in the last couple of years. It used to be very good. I have gottten really sick the last 2 times i had food there. Really bad food..This place should be shut down by health services. more

Please dont judge it unless you really know it. 1/5/2008

This is not a review from some who had the food. It is the review from the Priya resturant itself. All we could say is that if we were not to serve good food and not have given any good service we wouldnt have been running the resturant for more than 10years. Which is not a small time. We wouldnt have been getting cutomers for all these 10 years. We might have ran out of buisness like with in an year if we were not a good resturant. Its true that everyone has a different taste and different recepie to make food, like every mom cooks different. We are not really aware who are writing these reviews it might be some of our competitors becuase no one takes time to write a good review and such a long review as people write the bad reviews. . Thanks for the people who gave good reviews and also the bad reviews because someone might think after looking at these mixed reviews this cant be really a bad resturant because there are both good and bad reviews. So he really needs to come and check it out. Please do not judge any resturant not just ours based on these reviews. Its like judging someone with out really knowing them. Please do come to our resturant try and then judge it. more

awful greasy food 8/19/2007

I took my family for lunch buffet on weekend. As we entered it looked pretty decent, we were seated promptly. We went to grab food from the food bar. It had lot of variety. However, food tastes so greasy. We tried only vegetarian food. After eating all of us got very very sick. Even the following day we all had upset stomach. We'll never go back for sure. Pros: clean Cons: bad food more

Worst place 8/3/2007

hmmm let's seeas as far i as know indian people do their best performence to satisfy their customers. but priya indina cuisines staff they don't care if a customer walks in all of the workers they are all into television. it was my first time when i went their fot dinner with my friends like few months ago, i haven't aten anything disgusting in my life and i love indian food. my husband is indian. my gosh i ate chicken tikka masala and tandoori chicken i took a bite into my food and i couldn't take the smell seroiusly. i was sick for a week for eating at that place. and th service was rediciulous they don't smile they don't greet. people who read this please don't go to that restasurant again. i'm never going to that smelly restaurant again . more

South Indian restaurant 7/10/2007

Priya claims to serve North and South Indian food but it's essentially a South Indian restaurant so I wouldn't order north Indian dishes. To it's credit however, Priya makes better vegetarian dishes than the Pakastani restaurants(Tandoori Times I and II, Copper Kettle, Tandoori Village) and their malai kofta and palak paneer was good. Their north Indian dishes could use a lot of work such as their chicken tikka masala. Most of the food I've had here has been through take-out. The people seemed very nice and when I dined there, the service was adequate. Pros: South Indian food, Vegetarian dishes Cons: Meat dishes, North Indian dishes, reputation for bad service more
