Excellent buffet. Variety of food from different parts of India and excellent service. The menu in the buffet is always changing. I love that idea not having to eat the same item over and over again. Consistency in flavor need to improve but overall, I give A-

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 doesn't all taste the same! Menu items such as goat curry and lamb meatballs add... 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.

I started going here for lunch buffet back when they only had the A Street location. It quickly became one of my favorite places to eat. I have recommended an innumerable amount of people there and everyone loves it. The lunch buffet is a great value and the dinner buffet is even better. I go at least 3 times a... More

There's a reason why the lunch buffet is so popular here. They put on a really good spread, with more vegetarian options than any other Indian buffet I have encountered. It's usually got a nice mix of traditional dishes such as aloo gobi, tandoori, channa masala, saag, etc. They consistently offer at least 3-4 fresh veggie selections in rotation. If... More

Daily lunch buffet offers a great treat for under $10 per person. Hot steaming naan is brought to the table and refilled as you need it. Many choices on the buffet offer all you could want, from salads to meat and veggie dishes, to dessert. Clean and tastefully set tables top off the set of positives.

I have been a regular customer of Favorite Indian Restaurant for quite a few years. Their food is consistently very tasty, and prices reasonable. My favorite dishes are The Allo Gobi. Tandoori Chicken, Mushroom Mattar, Vegetable Samosa, and various naan breads. I especially appreciate their complimentary delivery service to the local area. Very appreciated on those nights in which one... More

I must admit that I have not eaten a lot of Indian food but I was impressed with what I had. Nice flavors and decent service. I got the chicken vindaloo and it was really good. I am sure I will be back.
