Portions served in restaurants

I have experienced that many times when I am dining alone in a nice restaurant (happens on work trips), the portion served is of much bigger quantity then I can consume, and there are no thali options. Therefore half of the curry goes waste. Why can't the department mandate that all restaurant menus should have atleast some items available (half portion). Other option is to have a child/light menu in all restaurants. We should reduce food wastage in our country and this could be easy step. more

Very good suggestion. May hotel people think that will reduce the sales. Because they are concerned about daily turnover
They will also happy to implement if the rates are above 50% for 50% quantity. That will ensure 1.saving of money to single customer, and useful to have more varieties/items
2. Reduce wastage,
3. hotel people will have better deal. more  
Very good and needy suggestion. The hotels are trying only to sell out their product. Nobody is trying to know whether the product is used well. The customers are also seems not bothered about the wasting of food articles. I have seen many times that the customers order different types of food items and leaving behind a good part of it. So we should be aware of both the things. more  
In many a restaurants quantity of vegetable served is very high.This can be divided in full plate and half plate.Specially if a single person is dining.It will save wastage and money. more  
Yes, it is a usual feature in many restaurants. They should make provision for half plate. Many of us, when dining together, also share the contents that is provided. more  
Instead of wasting the curry, next time Mishraji have the left overs packed and you can give it to a needy, hungry person on the road and earn his/her blessing as well. If quantity is half portion, people will complain that the restaurant serves less quantity and compare it with other restaurants. If they server full...there's still dissent...so instead of heart-burn and dish-burn, best option is enjoy what you got and pack left over for others also to enjoy. Alternatively you shouldn't be eating alone. more
