the restaurant is situated near the corner of university and san pablo. there is available parking on the street. it is operated by the family named Seelam. i have yet to try ordering from the menu during the 6 times i have dined there, so this review is about the traditional indian buffet offered on fridays, saturdays, and sundays.

having tried many indian styles on repetitive occassions in myanmar, brunei, indonesia, thailand, and of course here in the u.s., priya indian cuisine restaurant best exemplifies the different regional styles with pungent, aromatic, no holds barred, traditional flavors through its authentic sauces. if you are not familiar with genuine indian cuisine, i would suggest that you stick to indian restaurants catering to the american palette. during my visits, there have always been indian nationals dining there. when you finally accustomize your tastes to the point where you want to explore and take indian cuisine to a higher level, you must give priya a try.

there has always been ample table space during the times i have visited. reservations and credit cards are accepted. 'Pavali' and 'Nitin', sister and brother, are your waitstaff.

a nice variety of traditional indian beers is offered while free flowing fresh, hot nan (bread) prepared in their tandoori accompanies all meals.

I am always looking for good Indian food in any city I visit, but true South Indian restaurants are hard to find. Most Americans wll try North Indian but the southern cuisine is usually too hot for them. Priya is quite mild but has all the best menu selections and the price is low. Berkeley has so many Indian choices but Priya is rare. I missed the buffet as it was 9pm when I arrived for my takeout. I had Thairasa and Masala Dosa, which made a great combination of spice and texture, with a wonderful yogurt dish. I am looking forward to returning soon.
