Malaysian Cuisine - A Saleable Brand in Chennai

Charlet Christina Rajakumari R.

Abstract—Malaysia is an integrated society of Malays, Bumiputeras, Chinese and Indian Population, practicing Islam, Buddhism, Christianity, Daoism, Hinduism, Sikhism and Shamanism. Malaysian cuisine is a mixture of Thai, Indian, Chinese and many other cultures. A close analysis reveals that India and Malaysia are quite similar with respect to the traditional values, tribal contributions and obvious food habits. The historical migrations from India to Malaysia in the 19th century and the geographical advantage of Malaysia has resulted in similar eating habits and symphony of flavours. In spite of the similarities Malaysian food is not well accepted by the Chennai population. The facts of the Chennai dining industry show that Chinese, American, European and Italian cuisines are more popular in Chennai rather than Malaysian cuisine. Therefore an attempt to derive a formula for success of Malaysian restaurants in Chennai is undertaken in this research.

Index Terms—Customer perception, India, Malaysia, marketing strategies, restaurants.
