    Default (Having been) disappointed by several Indian restaurants

    Can you omit "having been" here? If you can, what's the difference between with it and without it?

    57)I was disappointed by several Indian restaurants. I think Indian food isn't for me

    Your sentences have no full stops.

    It's understandable without 'having been' but I'd keep it in.

    You need to change the full stop after 'restaurants' to a comma.
