There is no general rule on Veg/Non-veg restaurants. They often change
based on locations.
Many highway non-vegetarian eateries/restaurants in tamilnadu have an
explicit sign board saying "no vegetarian food".
This is becoming common in many cities in tamilnadu.

IMHO, colors (in symbol) for restaurants have to represent 3  types of
1. Veg - Green
2. Both veg and non-veg (may be orange)
3. Strictly non-vegetarian (red)
