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 their 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!Listed in: Little 'ole me and my little…
Had been here for lunch buffet. Relished the north indian food and the sweets. Highly recommended. Keep up the good work!!
Fast service, good price point, and friendly staff. We devoured every plate of food and if it weren't for public humiliation I would have literally licked the plate clean. Instead, I opted to wipe it clean with a piece of naan.
So yummy! I don't know why it took us almost 8 years of living here to find this place! It's SO good! I love the butter chicken, my husband prefers tikka masala. Our 4 year old only cares about the naan.The third time we went in (to pick up take home; I've never actually been *in* the place!) the guy recognized my husband and greeted him with a "Hey Buddy!" and we were hooked!The food isn't overly spicy, which is good for me. I like just enough of a kick; I don't want flames shooting out of my ears or anything!It's so good, and one of our favorite take-out meals ever!
