Model Answer 1:
I live in a rather big city which has plenty of good food places and restaurants to enjoy all kinds of food. In fact, there are so many of them that it would take literally years to try all of their food and dishes at least for once. Anyway, I have no intention to talk about trying to taste all those kinds of food, but rather I want to talk about visiting one of my favourite places to try some of my favourite food items and dishes.

The name of this favourite place, where I like to eat out, is called “Noel’s eatery”. Physically located at one corner and also on one of the major roads of my hometown, this large restaurant serves all kinds of food which include famous Indian cuisines, Chinese foods, Italian dishes, as well as popular dishes from many western countries.

Even though this restaurant is located at one corner of the city, the city dwellers from all over flock into this busy restaurant in order to enjoy their favourite food menu.  Anyway, I mostly visit this place to take my dinners, occasionally. This restaurant offers a sitting arrangement both in its lower space and upper space and attracts more or less all kinds of customers from all age groups and professional backgrounds, but it is more popular among the young people, probably because it is closed to a university and a junior college.

By the way, the décor of the restaurant is exquisitely designed with modern architecture, complemented by all kinds of modern furniture and amenities to make anyone feel comfortable. Besides, the elegant looks and designs of the cutleries there can only match those of a star-rated restaurant.
Well, this is my favourite place to eat out mainly because it has a rather impressive look. In fact, it allows me to enjoy the grand view of my beautiful city from the top floor during the night time. I like to visit this place also because it has all kinds of food for all seasons and time to stimulate my taste buds. Finally, it is my favourite place because the staffs here are very professional.


Sample Answer 2:
The (...say a restaurant name...) restaurant is my favourite place to eat out. I often go to this restaurant with my friends and family members both for the delicious foods they serve and for the quiet and healthy environment they offer.

This restaurant serves many various types of foods and that's why one can easily pick the foods s/he likes. The main dishes they serve are Thai, Indian, Italian, Mexican, Chinese and local dishes. On special occasions like Christmas and New Year, they serve other special menus as well.

This restaurant is a 4 storied building and has a nice parking underground and a garden in front of the ground floor. Just after someone enters the restaurant, the garden gives him a positive impression and a touch of nature. The architecture of the building looks good from the outside and the interior decoration of the building is eye-catching also. The light green colour of the wall, the opulent wooden furniture, the paintings on the wall, and the nice arrangement of the interior make it a nice looking place.

The restaurant offers a range of dishes and the prices are reasonable. The middle class, upper class and lower-middle-class people can easily afford to eat here. People who love Indian, Chinese, Tai and Mexican foods and like to be in a nice place with a calm environment should come here and try their foods. Since the environment is quiet and the interior is well-designed, people from all ages would enjoy being here. The playground at the ground floor is specifically built for children's amusement and the kids would also enjoy being in this restaurant.
