Mistral is a restaurant located in Ibn Battuta Gate in Dubai and this is one of the finest places for dining in the country. The restaurant is located on the side of a busy marketplace and always is crowded by the visitors from home and abroad. The restaurant staffs are welcoming all the visitors and guests cordially. The entire atmosphere is filled with the smells of spices which are alluring for all. People could have their breakfast, lunch, brunch or dinner and the meals are prepared with the local cuisine of Arabia. Besides, the restaurant also allows the visitors to taste the fresh foods from the seafood fare.


The restaurant looks like a mini market place beside a large market for its crowd inside the big place. The place inside is a bit dark yet, the restaurant is preferred by almost all types of visitors here only for the delicious foods and drinks. The seating arrangements are admirable while the serving techniques are also praiseworthy. Amid the crowd, the visitors do not feel alienated rather all of them enjoy their respective meals and drinks. This is a very good place for dining with family members and taste the traditional tastes of Arabia. The restaurant offers different types of foods and drinks to the visitors like the sumptuous breakfast buffet, lunch buffet centering Arabic cuisine, hot and cold Arabic mezzeh, seafood buffet for dinner etc. Besides, there are plenty of entertainment areas for the kids during the stay at the restaurant.

The foods and drinks at the restaurant are up to the mark and satisfactory. The serving quality is splendid. The restaurant serves the clients with different sorts of local and traditional foods in line with seafood. Besides, there are different sorts of drinks are also available here. The all-day dining station is filled with extraordinary foods and fruits. The seafood collection is adorable while the meats are cooked very well that they almost melt in the mouth. The desserts made in the restaurant is considered as the best one in the country. Moreover, the children section is also wonderful and enriched with attractive toys and attentive staff. The visitors can order their foods after a great variety of foods and they need to wait for few moments for the food to be prepared.

This is a special restaurant to me for some special reasons. I like the sea foods and drinks here most and they are really praiseworthy. Often I take my buffet seafood dinner here and the price is also reasonable for me. When I am with my kids, I allow them to play inside the children’s room and I do not need to worry about them at all.

Model Answer 2:  
Black Sesame Kitchen is one of the most impressive restaurants in Beijing and serves mostly Asian foods which are of great taste indeed. The restaurant is located in the Dongcheng District in Beijing in China. The restaurant now has shifted to this new location as the former one was a bit difficult to access from different parts of the city. So, the authority planned the move here and it is more convenient to reach at 28 Zhong Lao Hutong than the previous location. Dining at the restaurant is a pleasure for everyone as the foods are yummy and drinks are up to the standard.

The restaurant remains busy to deal with the customers and thus the entire ambience is a bit different from the contemporary restaurants. The accommodation system for the clients is also adorable and it becomes a joyful experience once you are in. The staffs and other members are friendly and you will be able to differentiate either you are your home or at a restaurant. The skilled staffs take care of everything and the chefs know what you want. So, the foods are prepared accordingly your taste. Though the foods are simply, they are cooked very well to be the perfect one and the cooks are expert in this case.

Black Sesame Kitchen offers a wide variety of foods. Most of the foods are traditional Chinese foods and sometimes the customers could also have some other cuisines except China. So, the customers have the options to taste different sorts of food in a single place. The most popular dishes cooked in the restaurant are - Pan-Fried Dumplings with Seasonal Filling, Beef with Hangzhou Peepers, Chongqing Spicy Chicken, Three Mushroom Stir-Fry, Red Braised Pork Belly, Kung Pao Shrimp (Spicy), Wild Rice Stem with Chinese Bacon, Five-Flavored Eggplant, Home Made Black Sesame Ice Cream, Seasonal Fruits etc. The desserts of the restaurants are also adorable and most of the cases the desserts come with the fruits and sweet-flavored items.

The restaurant is special to me for some particular reasons. Firstly, I like the courses served here and they are extremely delicious. The surrounding environment is brilliant. I like the Beef with Hangzhou Peepers, Chongqing Spicy Chicken more than any other items as those have a different way to cook and the taste is also spicy. The most important thing is that when the dishes are served, someone of the restaurant comes and describes the history, ingredients and cooking methods of the courses. The accommodation system is greatly decorated and it appears that you are waiting for someone at your home’s dining table. In fact, this special measure has been adopted to make the customers feel at home and enjoy their foods.
