The Dining Hall at the Tokyo Olympic Games Village serves cuisine from around the world, including Indian lentils and parathas. Table tennis player G Sathiyan said, 'I have no problem with the facilities of food and exercise. I ate dal and paratha yesterday, which was good. Prem Verma, deputy chief of the Indian team, said, 'When going to another country, one should adopt the culture and food of that country. Good Indian cuisine is being served here. Don't compare it with Indian food.


Given the players' demand for hot water, more than 100 electronic kettles have been sought from the Indian Embassy. The kettles are not kept in the rooms in the sports village. Along with this, cleaning of rooms will be done once in three days in an exercise to keep personal contact to a minimum due to the Corona epidemic.
