Unfortunately, of late, Indians believe eating out is a fashion. The way some of these celebrities on TV channel discussion mention that they have to eat atleast twice out side. Many follow them. Try home made food which is cooked and served to you with love by your loved ones.

Where are the loved ones with LOVE???? They are the first to instigate the kids to go outside and eat. Those days gone when our Moms will cook with love ,serve with love and get satisfied if only our bellies are filled.Oh those days..... with love

Honest reply by Manoharan but unfortunately reported for abuse. People don't want to hear the truth..
India neeeds to quickly catch up on the global food laws that state that all foods must have dietary information on them for consumer to decide if they want to eat it.
The info must tell what that product is made of and the calorie content of the products. If a consumer doesnt eat eggs then they can make a choice of not buying it. Or if someone has an allergy, they can avoid that product.
few days back, we had a breakfast in Taj bengal kolkata...Surprisingly, we found a fly swimming in our coffee cup...we asked the floor manager..he said in bengali accent, " OK baba, why are you shouting, take another cup".. This is the state of affairs in our 5-star hotels...

Being Taj, they served you a live fly as it was still swimming! Other restaurants will give you a dead one...:) One tea seller once asked" what do you expect , an elephant in a cup of tea?"
Prefer roadside food over big hotels. In big hotels you can't see what is going on in Kitchen. You can't even complain there. Roadside shops serve excellent food and most importantly they prepare in front of everyone. Always eat, Dosa, Idli, Vada Pav, Omlette, Bhurji roadside. Nothing bad will happen.

True. I had a chance to go to the staff area of a very famous 5 star hotel in Mumbai. It was a shocking experience. Customer areas and staff areas are like 2 different worlds. It was like some underground hellhole. Dirty, dingy, smelly. One waiter told us that if anything falls on the floor, they scrape it, put it back on the plate and serve it. This can't be done in small restaurants as everything is in front of you.
a) Cooks n staff poke noses, ears, flick mucus, scratch hairs, eczemas, rarely wash hands after a visit to the loo during cooking or serving b) If a fly, lizard or anything falls inside the vessel, it's flicked away nonchalantly & served anyway c) Stale or leftovers are coollected n overheated to be served as fresh items (WE ONLY SERVE FRESH, MIND YOU goes their blabber) d) If suitable (read that as dumbass) customers visit n solicit, they're craftily overbilled in some items or the other for a hefty total d) Finally, clever ideas for discounts or schemes or orders are hit upon n crafty managers chose to pour it down the brains of customers
i witnessed it myself in a top chain of restaurant where i interned. Milk was left exposed since they don't have anything to cover such large container. By morning few cockroach, insect drowned which were removed and it was business as usual. Inferior and cheap vegetables are turned into tasty dishes by use of chemicals which customers relish. Dough is made from leftover flour in mills.
