How can I test-drive a restaurant business?

Hi, I am an engineer who has a burning desire to start my own business. I have narrowed it to an Indian restaurant. Before spending a ton of money on location, cooks, and the whole works, I want to know if a cheaper, more viable way of finding out if this particular business model will be successful exists.

Great question with a really simple answer: Get a part-time job in an Indian restaurant or even try several. This is by far the best way to learn what you need to know and get paid to learn it.

As for starting up a small version or low cost version, probably the only way to do that is to start a catering business or something similar.
