Eating and Drinking

When you think of Indian food, odds are you think of something that is very spicy; but not all Indian food is that way. Many India restaurants serve simple breads, mild dishes and sweet desserts. Every region has their own specialities and different ways to serve meals – which is why Indian cuisine never becomes boring.

Don’t be surprised when you walk into an India restaurant and find no silverware at the table. Most Indian food is eaten with the hands. But, just because you’ll use your hands doesn’t mean you can eat like a pig. It’s not polite to have your fingers touch your mouth directly, or have food pass the first joint of your fingers. Oh, and another big one … make sure you only eat with your right hand. Most meals will be served with a flat bread, so you can use the bread to help you scoop or roll your veggies and rice in. And, don’t worry, if you order soup, they’ll give you a spoon.
