Indian Chinese cuisine is the adaptation of Chinese seasoning and cooking techniques to Indian tastes. It is said to have been developed by the small Chinese community that has lived in Kolkata (formerly Calcutta) for over a century. Immensely popular with Indians, it is widespread in major Indian metropolitan cities such as Bangalore, Kolkata, Mumbai, New Delhi and Chennai. It is also popular in Goa, where there is a large Chinese and Tibetan population. It is also enjoyed by Indian and Chinese communities in Malaysia, Singapore and North America. Indian Chinese has followed the mainstream Indian expatriate community as they have spread across the world, providing expatriate Indians with a taste of authentic Indian Chinese.

In spite of both China and India being neighboring country, Chinese food and Indian food are quite different. The Chinese food is more popular in the United States than Indian food whereas Indian food is more popular in the United Kingdom. In India, like any other countries, there are many Chinese restaurants where Chinese food is served.

Beside these Chinese restaurants, there are many local restaurants serving Indian versions or inspiration of Chinese food. Even China and India do not share much culinary background together, there are many restaurants who serve Indian Chinese food.

Yes. The Chinese seem to make foods in different countries with a local twist. I have had both Indian chinese and American chinese and the prefer the latter one, it tastes more "authentic" in taste, with the addition of sichuan peppers and five spice powders and different sauces. In India, it heavily relies on the ginger-garlic-green chilli- soy sauce combo which after a while gets monotonous.

of indian if they go abroad they mis indian chinese food. i like indian chinese food.
