Just about every time I've gotten sick in India, it's been from restaurant food. Frankly, the best bet is to go to places that have a good reputation whether they are street stalls or high-end restaurants and don't eat anything that looks or feels like it's been sitting at room temperature for a while. Otherwise, it's all going to be a matter of luck.

There was a time when I was going to the same street vendor selling masala dosas along the side of the road in Delhi and they were all prepared fresh right in front of my eyes: never a problem there. Then I went to a South Indian restaurant with local friends of mine and got horribly ill. Go figure.
