Best Asian Indian Biryani in Cleveland Area

Hope for Asian Indian Biryani Lovers of Cleveland

I got an opportunity to stop by for the first time, at this newest Asian Indian restaurant in the Cleveland area with some coworkers.  Priya Indian Cuisine is located in a partially vacant strip mall at the intersection of Snow Road and Chevrolet Boulevard in Parma.  This Asian Indian restaurant is huge in size and the decor of the restaurant indicates that it was probably a Chinese restaurant before.

Priya Indian Cuisine of Cleveland had the typical food items that are available in any Asian Indian restaurant buffet except for the mutton biryani.  Hyderabad, India is famous for its biryani, I think.  I suspect that the cook of this Asian Indian restaurant has a connection to Hyderabad because this Asian Indian restaurant served the kind of biryani that not only looks and tastes like a biryani, it actually is delicious.  I would visit this restaurant again just for their biryani.  The biryani is kind of low in meat, which is good or bad depending on the view, but for about $10.00 Asian Indians shouldn't expect more than what Priya Indian Cuisine offers.

According to the Plain Dealer, Priya in Parma is owned by Cleveland Asian Indian Jalabi Sridhar.  He and his business partner, Prabhakar Bamineni, own two additional Priya locations in Lowell, Massachusetts and Hartford, Connecticut.  Dhanabal Veerannan started under Prabhakar Bamineni in the Hartford location three years ago and now manages the Parma restaurant. Polite and accommodating, he will happily answer questions and clarify menu descriptions.

Priya biryani is better than dakshin biryani.
