“Horrible”
Reviewed 30 December 2011

Being an indian I really know what indian food is, the chicken tikka was horribly cooked, seemed frozen for months and then cooked and burnt, the naan was good, but butter chicken didn't even taste like butter chicken, was really disappointed. Meanwhile I was charged a 10% surcharge on the overpriced menu since it was christmas, and they charge extra for mint chutney and onion and lemon

“Par for the course for Indian Restaurants in NZ”
Reviewed 23 December 2011

We ate twice at Priya's during our holiday, and we feel its just about as good (or as bad) as any other Indian restaurant in the country.

Like all Indian restaurants in NZ, I feel this too is a bit overpriced. Quality-wise, their veg pulao was very very good, and so was the daal.

During both our visits, the place was quite empty so you can't really complain about the service. The only thing I found a bit odd was their insistence on you paying at the cashier counter, and not on your table.

“appaling service, mediocre food, overpriced — beware”
Reviewed 27 November 2011

I often eat Indian food in various countries, but the muck served up by this crowd is truly disghusting. They tried to charge for a glass of wine that was corked, and when I returned the wine after barely trying a sip, the manager replied "It's not my problem. Call the vineyard."

Just stay away.

“Great Indian Food at Franz Josef”
Reviewed 16 November 2011

As Malaysians, we have had our fair share of tasty Indian food. As such, we were quite skeptical when we entered this restaurant. We had Briyani Chicken rice and vegetarian Dhal curry. The verdict? Excellent! Delicious! We would eat here again.
