Traditionally, they use their hands. Right hand only (like Muslim countries the tradition is that the left hand is used for 'other purposes.) There are also utensils similar to ours, especially spoons, that are often handmade.

Etiquite also suggests that if food is served family style, each person takes food from one side/section of the plate.
