    We loved the vegetable samosas and the tamarind dipping sauce. The tikka masala and the chicken biriyani were also good. The biriyani is a huge portion. The naan was excellent! I would come here again if in the area.

    Not sure what all the fuss is about for this restaurant...the food was good but nothing to rave about. The atmosphere was just sad and needs a complete overhaul.

    I am no expert on Indian cuisine, but I've eaten here twice and everything I've ordered was delicious! I love curries and spicy foods. The dishes were aromatic and flavorful. The meats are cooked perfectly. Our server was very friendly and provided excellent service. Will return soon and try the buffet.

    The Butter Chicken was great. I think ordering from the menu is better than doing the buffet although the buffet brought in a lot of customers.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2009
    Dined on 11/4/2011
    Went on a Friday night and it was BUSY! They serve a buffet dinner which looked good, but which we did not have. The price must have been right, as there were many families eating from the buffet. We chose the Thali dinner - mainly because we like service on a Thali set, and what we wanted to eat wasn't part of the buffet. Between the two of us, we had the channa masala and lamb vindaloo. I asked for the puris (pooris) in lieu of the naan, and they were very good - like the bhatura at Vik's (which I love). The lamb vindaloo was my husband's and it was very good, too! They have several Indian beer choices, which we like, because sometimes we feel like one over another.

    We were not even offered a menu, told all they had was a buffet. Then a few other tables became occupied and those patrons got menus. Food was bland, not spicy and not particularly flavorful. Our server was essentially non existent. We will not be back.

  • The food at Favorite Indian

    Dined on 10/15/2011
    The food at Favorite Indian Restaurant was fantastic. The service was also good, except they weren't too sure what OpenTable was and I wasn't sure, at first, if they understood we had made our reservations through OpenTable. It would be easier to maneuver through if the host understood English a little better. I told them I had reservations for 7 pm; he understood I wanted a table for 7. It worked out in the end; and the food certainly made up for any deficiencies! I highly recommend their restaurant... we now have yet another great Indian restaurant to visit.

    Maybe it was my timing, but I was there on a Thursday at 7pm and only one other couple was there. Very quiet in there. Food was delicious. Very nice variety on the menu. Waiter was fast and very helpful. This is a place I'll be returning to (esp. for their all you can eat lunch/dinner so I can sample other foods).

    I thought it was very nice place, but the place is very small and they are not able to accommodate big families. Nice place for groups of 4 or less.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 1/14/2011
    The lunch buffet is a good way to sample all the various items on the menu. The food was very good. Each dish had its own distinct spices without being overpowering. Fresh from the tandoori oven Nan kept coming as the bread basket emptied quickly. Service was good, they kept our water glasses and beverages filled, and provided new plates at appropriate intervals. The food at Favorite Indian is consistent each time we've dined there. Great addition to the neighborhood. This is the go-to place if I need an Indian food fix.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 1/8/2011
    Staff was not helpful and/or friendly. When we arrived a man pointed to a table and left us there - no one asked if we wanted to order off the menu or have the buffet. The curries were watered down - not the rich sauces one would expect at an Indian restaurant. Tandoor chicken didn't have any flavor. We were not asked if we'd like a beverage but water was left on the table when we walked over to the buffet. My husband is Indian and we have eaten at most restaurant in the Tri Valley area - this one is not up to par.

    Favorite Indian Restaurant was packed when we arrived and our reservation made no difference - we had approx 30 minute wait. The place was very understaffed as well. The food was buffet style at a good price and had good flavor although some of the food on the buffet was barely warm. The staff was friendly. I can't recommend this place, but we'll probably give it another try at some point. The friendly staff and good tasting food lead me to believe that we just hit a bad day.
