With friends from Poona, we had a really fun evening of terrific and unusual Indian food at this new place tonight. Priya serves both Southern and Northern Indian food and on Wed. night they do a Chat Buffet along with a Desi Chinese buffet. It was all vegetarian, so you veggies out there- you are going to be really thrilled with this addition to your options.
I have to say that i am extremely picky about Indian food in U.S. restaurants.From Desis (native Asian Indians living in the States) I have learned to cook a large array of Indian dishes. I was really delighted and surprised with the excellence of the food at Priya. I had not one dish that I thought 'ugh'
or mediocre, and I returned quite a number of times to the buffets, sampling everything.
Dhokla- WOW! this was a revelation!
Curried white peas
Mini poori w/array of filling choices
Desi Chinese Buffet:
Sambar- NOW i finally know how good this dish can be: thick, rich, multi layered complex flavors
Fried Idli in Sweet and Sour type sauce
fried spiced rice
egg rolls w/ cabbage, green pepper etc.
rice w/ yoghurt
there were other dishes as well; they just weren't my top favs.
Can you imagine, a DINNER buffet w/ a large variety of delicious food for $12 p.person??
we can't wait to go back. but *** WARNING: Google maps BAD for this place.***
Also, our friends told us that there's a place with great authentic lunch thali and particularly excellent dosas, at Udupi Bhavan, just down the street.
