The interior may be small, but the flavors definitely aren’t. Decorated with only a few tables and some wall art, Sushiland is definitely worth the wait. For fish lovers, they offer a wide variety of both deep-fried and raw rolls. For the picky eaters, there are teriyaki bento boxes, as well as udon noodles and donburi – a rice bowl served with your choice of meat.

Known as one of the best Thai restaurants in Hayward, Paya Thai serves up recipes that have been passed down for over a hundred years. The sweet owner will regale you with tales of her home in Thailand while you read over their delectable menu. If you’re unsure of what to order, go with the pad Thai or panang chicken curry – a milder curry made with dried chili peppers, coriander, and cumin.

Colloquially known as just Bronco Billy’s, Bronco Billy’s Pizza Palace is highly recommended by Cal State East Bay students, present and former. Where else can you get a ‘slice’ of pizza the size of your head for as little as $4.25? Each slice is cooked to order to your specifications. If their prices still aren’t reasonable enough, they offer coupons on their website.
Blink and you might miss it. Tucked away next to the Hayward Karaoke Studio, The Sister House is hands down the best place to get Korean BBQ short ribs. So tender and full of flavor, the meat is marinated extraordinarily well. Just one visit, and you’re sure to be hooked.
