This is not your typical Indian cuisine

You might be wondering about the name of the restaurant.

You might be thinking that this is going to be a typical Indian cuisine.

But, you will soon find out that this is not your typical Indian cuisine in the sense that it is a fusion between Indian and eastern cuisine.

The introduction of oriental dishes into the traditional Indian fare has been a result of the influx of immigrants from countries such as China, Thailand, Indonesia and Malaysia. Dishes such as Pad Thai and Satay skew more towards Thai and Indonesian cuisines respectively.

What to Expect at an Oriental Restaurant?

One of the most commonly found dishes on an oriental menu is fried rice. It is a highly adaptable dish and can include ingredients such as eggs, peas, carrots, onions, and green onions. A common sauce used for this dish is soy sauce or oyster sauce. Another popular dish at an oriental restaurant is the ramen noodle soup which contains noodles made from wheat flour and served in a meat-based broth with such toppings as sliced pork or dried seaweed.

Some other popular items off of an oriental menu are dumplings which are small filled pasta that can be boiled or deep-fried and served with various dipping sauces. Other common dishes found at an oriental restaurant include sushi, sashimi, and teriyaki which all consist of raw fish on top of sushi rice or tempura. Teriyaki is a Japanese dish that is made from fish, vegetables, and other ingredients that are dipped in a sauce before being eaten.

Primary Dishes You’ll Find at an Oriental Restaurant

It is difficult to define what makes an Oriental dish. It has come to be known as a term for dishes that are served in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Thai and Vietnamese restaurants.

The definition of “Oriental” food is not precise in its scope or in the ingredients that are used in the recipes.

There are many different kinds of Oriental foods which are considered to be common dishes at Oriental restaurants.

Some of them are General Tso’s Chicken, Egg Drop Soup, Pad Thai Noodles, Shrimp Lo Mein with Vegetables, Spicy Basil Fried Rice with Seafood.

How To Order Your Meal At An Oriental Restaurant?

It is of utmost importance to know how to order your meal at an Oriental restaurant, so you can get the best experience.

The following are some dos and don’ts when ordering a meal at a restaurant:


– Make sure the menu has pictures, as this will help you select what you want to eat.

– Make sure your waiter is fluent in English, as there may be a language barrier otherwise.


– Order from the parents’ menu if you’re an adult that doesn’t have kids with them because this will earn you strange looks from the waiter and other diners.

– Ask for substitutions or modifications to dishes that are not on the menu because this might cause confusion for the waiter and it’s possible they won’t be able to do what you ask.

Why You Should – and Shouldn’t Eat at an Oriental Restaurant?

Oriental food is not for everyone, but it’s certainly worth giving it a try. Just like any food, you can’t truly know what you will like until you try it.

While some people swear by the taste of Oriental foods, others are not as enthusiastic about it. The main reason why these people do not enjoy Oriental cuisine is because they are not too fond of hot spices or flavors that are more intense than what they are used to.

Some people believe that Oriental restaurants serve higher quality dishes than other types of restaurants, while others think that the quality is about the same as other restaurants.

The good thing is, if you don’t enjoy your meal at an Oriental restaurant, there are plenty of other international cuisines to choose from!
