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...More

I'm a huge fan of the unique flavors of Indian cuisine. But I often find USA Indian restaurants tone down the spices and what's left is boring. Not so at Favorite Indian. Very good and unique flavors across a variety of different dishes so it...More

We have Favorite Indian food often! They deliver - and fast! Our favorites are Chicken Masala and Tandoori Chicken. The chutney is to die for - both green and red! Be sure to order extra, you will want to put it on everything.
