On a more sensible note, you are forced to eat slightly more slowly (even me and I rock with a pair of chopsticks) which is better for your health.

I might be wrong but this could be due to the ratio of carbs to protein in most Asian dishes. It's usually lots of rice and very little meat. Western food tends to be lots of meat and a small portion of potatoes.
At any rate, for me I'll use whatever implement they provide with the dish.
