Vegetarian. Can describe food ("This is veg pulao"), a person ("No meat, I am veg") or a restaurant ("Shanti Sagar is veg, so be warned").

It can also clue wholesome family entertainment, as the antonym of "non-veg", which is sometimes used to suggest sexual content.

Usage

H1B Gujju at US restaurant: "You have vayz?"
All-American waitress: "What?"
H1B: "Vayz? You have vayz?"
Waitress: "I'm sorry, what? Do we have a vase?"
