    Hi all, I am interested in people's preference in cuisines from around the world. I've recently heard that majority of people tend to prefer Indian over Turkish cuisine.

    Personally, I prefer Turkish cuisine. However I would like to test whether Indian cuisine is more popular.

    Thanks for answering the poll. Also, please only vote if you have tasted both cuisines before.( don't be biased!)

    Lastly, it would be nice if you could point out why you prefer one over the other.

    Thanks for your time.

    Its a bit of a trick question. When people go for an Indian, chances are they are actually eating food cooked and served by people from Pakistan or Bangladesh. And the food they eat - poppadom and dips and spicy soup / stew with lumps of meat floating in it is more a British take on Indian food compared to authentic cuisine from the Indian subcontinent region.

    So for me, no to British Indian / curry house type cuisine
    Yes to authentic Indian cuisine (which is nothing like British curry) and actually tastes nice.
    Yes to Turkish although I have to say that I am not quite sure how you define Turkish food.

    I prefer spicy food so I prefer Indian food to Turkish food which I just find bland.

    I'm Indian and I prefer neither over the other.

    Turkish cuisine is excellent, though, and there is some overlap between the two.

    British Indian curry tastes nice. Go to better curry houses.
