Model Answer 1:
Paris is a multicultural city, and people of various nations live here in harmony. As a result, the number of cafes and eateries is on the rise in this city. I live in the southeast corner of the city, and a new Asian restaurant has recently opened its branch here. For this topic, I will talk about this newly opened restaurant.

The restaurant belongs to a business person from a South Asian country named Bangladesh, and it is his 7th branch of the same restaurant. The owner gave it the name Sonar Bangla (Golden Bangla) Restaurant. It sells various types of traditional Bangladeshi foods. The restaurant is located at the southeast corner of Paris - which is a residential and semi-commercial area. A few weeks ago, I visited the restaurant with my fiancé and had a great experience there.

The restaurant offers a good number of different Bangladeshi foods. But most of the dishes they offer are spicy and hot for our taste. Some of the foods looked extremely spicy, and we did not dare to try them. When I had been there, I ordered beef kebabs and traditional parathas with seasonal salads for me. I asked the cook to make it less spicy than usual. The kebab was so soft and delicious. My fiancé, on the other hand, ordered plain rice, chicken curry and salad. She told me that she liked the food and it was tasty. The restaurant menu included many other traditional items, many of which I did not even understand! I could recognise items like steamed rice, beef curries, mutton curries, beef and chicken kebabs, traditional drinks, vegetables, salads and some desserts.

The restaurant had a cosy and welcoming ambient. The exterior of the restaurant had a traditional and exotic look. The interior had a classic look - a combination of European and Asian styles. People say that serving the food is an art, and it seems to me that they know this art pretty perfectly. Finally, I liked the way they tried to keep tables away from each other to give their customers some privacy.

My impression of this new restaurant is that it is a splendid restaurant. Everything appeared great. I also liked the hospitality that the staff offered us. Besides, the quality of the food was also superb. Furthermore, the location where the restaurant is situated is convenient for me. I think the restaurant will serve people in a professional and friendly manner and do well in the future.


Sample Answer 2:
Indians love to try different foods, and they have a fascination for traditional and international dishes and cuisines. As a result, a substantial number of restaurants and eateries are available across the streets wherever you go in our country. I live in Chennai in Tamil Nadu, and a new Chinese restaurant has opened its branch in our city just a couple of months ago. Thank you for this topic, and for it, I'll describe this newly opened restaurant.

The restaurant is called "Xialing" that has opened a new branch in our city, more specifically, near my locality - the northern part of Chennai city. The restaurant has a few more branches across the country, and they are quite popular. The restaurant that has opened in our area sells quality food at a reasonable price. Moreover, their service quality is also very good.

The restaurant mostly offers different Chinese foods and beverages. They offer a good number of dishes like Chow Mein, Fried Rice, Roasted Duck, Spring Rolls, Wontons, various types of vegetables and soups. The foods are delicious, and I am a frequent visitor to this restaurant for their tasty foods. They prepare the foods only after the customer place orders. So, the visitors need to wait a bit for the food preparations, but they are always served fresh and delicious food.

The outlook of the restaurant is excellent. The entire design and decoration are done with the reflection of the traditional Chinese style. The interior design and excellent lighting system inside the restaurant have created a magnificent look and feel. Moreover, they organised the tables and chairs in a professional and cosy manner that gives a positive impression.

The restaurant is great from every perspective. You can have your favourite Chinese dishes from there and also relax the entire time. There is nothing to hurry about. I have visited there numerous times with my family and friends and I liked their professional and friendly attitude, delicious food, reasonable price and relaxing ambient. What more to expect from a restaurant? I hope they will do better and bigger business in the coming days and get more popular.
