What a great local institution in the Haystack! Ladies and gents, say what you will about Hayward, but there are actually many GREAT restaurants in this city that will save your pocketbook and keep you full and happy. I've been coming here for YEARS, since they were at th...moreeir old location on A Street. I had a couple qualms with the location, but NEVER the food. After they moved to their new larger location, Favorite Indian is definitely my favorite for great Indian food in all of the bay. They do have a location in San Ramon but, it's definitely more expensive and more bougie! The location in Hayward is like Grandma's hug...warm, friendly, and comfortable! The food is fabulous and so are the prices. Favorite has one of the best Indian dinner buffets with the widest selection I have ever seen. For $13 and some change you get a selection of the tried and true dishes like Chicken Tikka Masala and Butter Chicken to homemade Paneer, Spinach, and even Mango Ice Cream (bomb). My favorite ever is the lamb korma and the tandoori items...but I also LOVE LOVE...LOVE the garlic naan. Ladies and gents, come here...I promise you will be the happiest ever. Everyone that I have ever taken here always loves it and asks to come back whenever they visit. It's just simple, good food at a great price. You'd be crazy not to try it!

Favorite Indian Restaurant is all around great indian restaurant. The samosas and vegetable pakora are delicious Indian Food Appetizers were great. After 5+ visits, I can't say I've come across a dish I wouldn't recommend - that includes both the meat and the veggie - especi...moreally when eaten with the garlic nan. Add in the friendly service and reasonable beverages mango lassi, and butter chicken is worthy of visiting any night of the week. Please Make sure to get an order or two of Gulab Jamun to-go if you're too full for dessert.You won't be disappointed.The servers was very friendly they served us with the best service.view less
