One very common hindi word is haanji, which is basically a respectable yes. You would hear that a lot. An interesting one is when you ask for a check in a restaurant. In India people use the word "bill" and not "check". It is still in english but better to use bill than "check" since that might be confusing in the context.

"Restroom" word for toilet/bathroom is not used. Just say bathroom or toilet.
