The atmosphere is okay. Could use some more popular Indian videos and music. There was plenty food for the price. I like the more authentic spicy Indian food and so this was low on the spice side. They are close by and so its good when I don't have much time.

The food is delicious, service is pretty good, and the price is a STEAL. Lunch(everyday 11-2) is only $9.99 and dinner on the weekends is $14.99. Best Indian spot in Hayward!

My husband and I like to try new places when we go out. Now that is going to be very hard to do because I am always going to want to go the Favorite Indian Restaurant! From the moment we walked in we were warmly welcomed, seated right away and shown the buffet. Normally I do not like buffets but... More

Friends took me here for the first time several years ago - and now, if I want to go to a sit-down Indian restaurant I go here. The prices are reasonable! The food is good!

Our "favorite" Indian food restaurant. The food is always delicious. We always select naan and butter chicken then go from there.

My friend recommended this place for our get together and so it is worth it for the food you get for the lunch buffet which costs about $10.95 after the Yelp check-in. You don't pay until after the buffet so I showed them my yelp check-in and the three of us got the discount, so nice! This is my first... More

Favorite Indian Restaurant in Hayward continues to be one of my go-to places because of their consistently good food, reasonable prices, and -especially- because of their complimentary local delivery service, a real plus on those evenings in which I don't want to go out. This time I tried their mixed-lentil vegetarian dish- it was very good. Other favorites of mine... More

This is my "favorite" Indian spot outside of Fremont. A must try on any Friday or Saturday night. The lunch buffet is equally solid. The ambiance is fitting, as Bollywood videos play on the monitors in the dining area... The owners have done a nice job. I would caution eating here in late afternoon or early evening hours because they... More

We have been going to Favorite Indian for over 15 years, 4-5 times per year. The buffets are excellent, well spiced and never too crowded. Good selection of non-meat and meat dishes. Nans (garlic or not) are offered. The meals go well washed down with Indian beer. One can make a tasty dessert concoction with the gulab jamun, rice pudding... More
