The key cuisine=* is used to describe the type of food served at a place.

The cuisine tag is used on places that serve food, such as amenity=restaurant, amenity=fast_food, or amenity=cafe to provide more information about the type of food served. The value can describe the ethnic origin of the food, specific types of food featured, or other features about the food or style of food.

Values can be combined using the semi-colon value separator. For example, cuisine=donut;coffee_shop denotes a place that specializes in both donuts and coffee, or cuisine=italian;pizza denotes an Italian restaurant that specializes in pizza. The order is not important. [ dubious ]

Only the most commonly used values are listed below. It is important to use existing values when possible to assist third party tools. However, other values may be used if they are meaningful. For example, if a restaurant specializes in a local dish, it is appropriate to tag that even if the tag does not have widespread global use.

Values should be all lower case, even when listing ethnicities or other proper nouns which would usually have the first letter capitalized. Values are usually singular (cuisine=burger not cuisine=burgers).

Related tags

The availability of food matching certain dietary restrictions can be described with the diet:*=* tag. For example, vegetarian restaurants are described with diet:vegetarian=only.

The option for takeaway, delivery, drive-through, or drive-in can be be described with the takeaway=*, delivery=*, drive_through=*, and drive_in=* tags.

The availability of food at all can be described with the food=* tag or with food:*=* namespace (e.g food:pizza=yes). This is primarily useful on amenity=bar and other types of amenities that sometimes do not serve food.

The specific drinks served at a place can be described with the drink:*=* prefix or drink=* key.

The ethnicity of non-food goods can be described with the origin=* tag.
