Although there are many restaurants along the streets, eating while standing or walking on the street is inappropriate. Finishing a drink implies the desire for the glass to be refilled. It is impolite to eat or drink until invited to do so by the host. Both hands are kept above the table while eating. Compliments about the food are appreciated by the hostess.
At restaurants, a service charge is usually included in the bill. Tipping is uncommon. Public use of toothpicks is avoided; if toothpicks must be used, one hand should cover the mouth during use.
