    To dine is to eat and a table used while eating is a dining table.

    It is better that we also talk about dinning room.

    I am sure that it is not anyway far linked to Indian civilization. In most of the Asian countries, I think the tradition was to sit on the floor and eat. We had serving chowkis for food in front of us. Japanese still follow their tradition of sitting down and dining.

    I have experienced this tradition during my stay in Konkani area in Goa, and some other south Indian states besides in Assam, and Bengal. I have even eaten on Banana leaf in many states sitting both on chair and kitchen floor in many states. We in north India eat sitting on floor on certain special occasions.

    At my home, we still sit on the floor for our meals. And on special occasions such as Gauri Ganpati, etc. when I have my in-laws and my mother and everyone for the Naivedya, we draw elaborate colorful rangolis around the plates and use incense sticks. It is a very pleasant affair.

    That sounds so beautiful. It really enhances the joy of eating in a traditional beautiful way. In our house, dining table is for guests only. We have a center table of Japanese style. We sit around it on the floor to have our meal.

    In India most of families have not dinning table, I also have not dinning table. In Rajasthan serving  chowkis for food still is fashion in Jaipur and Azmer region. Even in marriage they served food on chowkies.
