Typically non-plated dinners don’t have any meal choice options. The caterer will usually prepare a certain amount of everything on the buffet based on the total headcount you give. Also keep in mind, the some people will probably try some of both types of food

I don’t think you need to ask what people will eat. I would try a little of everything, honestly. But, if you want to include something to let people know, you could say along the lines of your cultures combining and so is your food? I don’t think that’s really necessary though.

Guests might feel really uncomfortable answering your RSVP meal question! Especially when worded as Indian or American food! It is all just food and it is a buffet so they will take as little or as much as thy want. it might also give the opportunity to guests who have never tried the cuisine the chance to try!

I agree with PPs I think people will probably have a bit of everything.  I know I would!!  🙂

@kianeema:  with plated dinners guests have to decide their meal choice early on, i think its totally reasonable to have something like: “Please indicate your buffet of choice: ___Indian food ___American food ___I’d like to try it all!”
