At the Indian anything from the Tandoor is ok. Just don't go for sauces or rice etc.
Chinese I usually go for the chop sueys and drain the sauce off or the egg foo yungs.
Kebabs are fine as long as you don't have the pitta bread. :)

I normally get a spring roll and salt and pepper spare ribs from the chippy/chinese. The day after I'm still in ketosis so I always still with those :) I tried a foo yung once but I was getting a bit sick of eggs by that stage so couldnt eat it :-(
Another consideration is the trans fats (opaque white gloop) that most Indian and Chinese restaurants add to their sauces, etc., to improve the texture and longevity. I saw a tv show on this stuff and it looks like smoothly blended, almost see-through wallpaper paste. Our bodies cannot process this new food technology innovation and we can get serious health problems from ingesting it but it is dirt cheap and makes sauces extra smooth. Dr. Atkins cautioned against trans fats.

Trans fats are added to commercial cakes, biscuits, and a wide array of both sweet and savoury foodstuffs including ready meals and desserts. I always check the labels to avoid it but in a restaurant meal you can't know so go easy on the sauces.

Chinese is full of monosodium glutamate too and sugar, tons of it, in the sauces. Such a pity lol cos it tastes gorgeous.

I love doner meat :) mixed kebab is ok too, with garlic mayo, lovely. be careful of the salads though as some are covered in sugar water.

chinese just the ribs really (salt and pepper)
