I love Priya - great food and service. Very vegan/vegetarian friendly. Their food is very consistent and flavorful. It is definitely one of my favorite spots in Chico. I love the pakora, vegetable masala, navratan korma, and chicken tikka masala!

Just the best. The lunch buffet is offered 7 days a week and is wonderful! Just went there for dinner tonight and ordered off the menu. Have never been disapointed. Highly, highly recommend. Very nice folks and great service.
