Teh Kurang Manis

What drink would you order when you go to an Indian or mamak (Indian-Muslim) restaurant? I would order teh kurang manis (direct translation - tea less sugar).

And what about in a Chinese hawker stall or restaurant? I would order teh-si (tea with sugar and evaporated milk) or Chinese tea.

And what about in a Malay hawker stall or restaurant? Hmm.... this is a tough one. Usually the drinks they serve are too diluted with lots of sugar even though you ask for less sugar. I will still order teh kurang manis and if it's undrinkable then I won't finish it.
