Visited this restaurant on 25th May 2016 for dinner, location is good but food here is OK but not very good. We tried the buffet dinner there was a good variety in the vegetarian section but only one dish in the non-veg section. Nan quality was very thick, but sweet dish was very good..

I'm pretty sure that this used to be a fast food place of some kind, or maybe a Friendly's. So, don't expect too much in the way of atmosphere - it's pretty "utilitarian". That being said, they have an extensive buffet - which is actually really nice since diners may sample a wide variety of dishes. The service was very... More

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 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
