Sample Answer:
I do not dine in a restaurant very frequently. In fact I prefer to eat homemade foods. However, there are some occasions when I prefer meeting people at a restaurant and like to taste the delicious menus the restaurants offer. One such restaurant is ‘Plaza de Capita Foods’ that I really like and I would like to thank you for the opportunity to talk about my favourite restaurant that I enjoyed going to.

I went to this restaurant a couple of weeks ago with my parents and siblings. The restaurant is situated in a large shopping mall in the city we live in and it is almost 30 minutes away from our home. The restaurant is in the 18th floor and offers a nice open sky view.

It was my younger sister’s birthday and we planned prior to the occasion to celebrate this special day outside. As part of our whole day plan, we ate the dinner at this restaurant. My father also like the way the restaurant offers an excellent dining experience in a moderately cheap price.

We ate the buffet and that included almost 40 items in total. I remember eating around 8-9 items while my parents less. But my younger brother John enjoyed more than 20 items. Side note: He did not eat all the items. He just tasted many of them!

The common items we ate included fried rice, sandwiches, fried chicken, curry chicken, cheese and onion rolls, seafood platter, garlic bread, prawns and ice cream. The restaurant offers an excellent view as well as a nice decoration. It was a perfect place to enjoy our dinner and they offered a free birthday cake! I loved the way they served the foods and the overall price was reasonable. It was my younger sister’s birthday and the dinner could not have been better!
