    I've been curious about this for a while. The most popular two foreign cuisines in Britain are probably Indian and Chinese (not counting burgers/pizza places). If you had to pick one of the two, which would you prefer? I'd go for Chinese every time, because I can't stand hot spices like chilli. I've always thought curries would be lovely if they didn't have to ruin them with the hot spices.... Also, chinese meals tend to have more vegetables included.

    Edit: I know there are more takeaway cuisines than those two, but I'm interested in how the two most popular Asian ones in Britain compare, that's all.

    Two choices? How sheltered.

    "Spices like chilli"? Heared of a Korma?

    You're pretty one track minded.

    Hmmm. I'm not a fan of spicy food, but a well cooked Korma is amazing. Saying that, it's probably the only thing I like from an Indian, whereas I like lots of Chinese food, so I'll say Chinese.

    No, I'm not sheltered, I am aware there are many more cuisines than those two. I personally prefer Turkish or Moroccan to either of them. But Indian and Chinese are much more common, and I was interested in which would come out in front if viewed as rivals.

    Also, yes I have heard of, and tried korma. I know that there are many more spices that are hot, chilli just happened to be the first that sprung to mind. I know some curries are extremely mild, but I appear to be super sensitive and just can not like the sensation of spicy heat on my tongue. Sorry. I can detect heat in even the mildest of curries.
