Moving to New Delhi from a small town because of the job has its disadvantages. But, it has some benefits as well, and one such benefit is that you have many, literally countless great restaurants to try your favourite food. Today, I would like to talk about one such restaurant which has been my favourite since the day I moved to the capital of my country.
The name of the restaurant is “Bukhara”, which is located in the diplomatic enclave of New Delhi. This high-end fine dining restaurant has an extravagant ambience and stylish aura which reflects the modernity and glamorous style of “Indian Royalty”. The interior wall of this famous, all-Indian restaurant is made of expensive tiles with a perfect lighting scheme to illuminate them. The tables are not placed too close to each other to ensure the customers’ privacy. The plates and cutleries look exceptionally good and elegant, perfectly blending in with the restaurant’s royal interior. And as for the foods, the celebrated restaurant serves authentic Mughlai foods such as Murgh Tandoori, Tandoori Guchchi, sumptuous Mutton Biryani, Chaamp Taajdar (mutton chops braised and grilled), authentic Butter Chicken and Daal along with Malai tikka and Raarhya Meat which are served with crisp Rotis and Ulta Tawa parathas. It also serves “Sarson da saag” and “Makki di roti”. Finally, Dal Bukhara, served with the Tandoori Naan, Kastoori kebab, and Reshmi kebab would also satisfy your taste buds anytime.
It is my favourite restaurant mainly because they always serve fresh food with the best available ingredients. Besides, whenever I come to this restaurant, the staffs always treat me like a “royal” with an amiable attitude. I love this restaurant also because it always serves the foods at the right time, after ordering them, without keeping me waiting and hungry. Finally, this is my favourite restaurant because it perfectly blends the taste of different Indian cuisines from different parts of India.

Thank you very much for allowing me to talk about my favourite restaurant. The name of my favourite restaurant is Diner’s Paradise, and it is located in the downtown city I live in. I like it because it offers a friendly environment and delicious food. Moreover, I have many pleasant memories related to this establishment. My parents celebrated some of my birthday parties there, our college friends arranged get-together parties twice, and on one occasion, one of my cousins’ marriage ceremony was celebrated at that very place; all these events make it unique to me.
The restaurant has three floors and the seating arrangement is extraordinary, which does not compromise privacy, unlike many other restaurants. Paintings of famous artists hang on the wall, and the place is clean. The interior decoration is simply gorgeous. Besides, the ground floor can park more than 50 cars. It also has a large playground for children. Finally, the front view of the restaurant is unique as it gives the aura of a green and lavish garden.
The restaurant offers several dishes, including continental menus, Italian, Thai, Indian, Pakistani and local menus, and delightful exotic desserts. Not to mention, the prices are reasonable, and the food is served reasonably quickly, contrary to some other eateries where you have to wait for a long for your food to be served. Besides, the attendants and other staff members are friendly and treat the guests cordially. The restaurant offers a wide range of dishes to pick from, and no additional service charge is imposed on the final bill. The soft background music and instrumentals make the environment more enjoyable and soothing. As I said, tables are not congested, and people can enjoy their conversations and sports on large TVs. The large glass-made windows offer the city view, which makes the place worth visiting. The place is famous for dining, and I have often noticed many foreign tourists visiting the restaurant. It’s a good thing that the authority invites customer feedback and comments on food, service and dining experience and they take prompt actions against customer complaints.
I would say, this is a nice restaurant to go to and enjoy the tasty food and I like it very much.

Thank you very much for this excellent topic. I would like to talk about my favourite restaurant and mention where it is, what it looks like, the food it serves and why it is so special to me.
My favourite restaurant is in England! It is actually in the suburbs of the city of Sheffield where I live in. The restaurant is on a busy street very near to a large park. It is quite a small and hectic place called Jonty’s because Jonty is the name of the person who set up the business.
From the outside, the restaurant doesn’t look very impressive. It has large glass windows at the front and some benches outside for people to sit on if they are waiting to go in. There used to be a large sign with the restaurant’s name in big letters, but recently they have taken down the sign and not yet replaced it! Inside there are lots of square wooden tables, each with about four chairs around them. The restaurant is on two levels, I prefer to go upstairs to the first floor because you can sometimes get a window seat and enjoy watching people as they pass in the street outside.
The restaurant serves mainly breakfast and lunch meals. It makes delicious coffee – I like their latte’s best – and lots of sandwiches, salads and amazing soups. The restaurant also has a selection of delicious, gooey homemade cakes. However, when I go, I always have the same thing – scrambled egg on wholemeal toast with mushrooms, because that is what I like best!
The restaurant is very special to my friends because we meet there every Saturday. On Saturday, about 500 people go to the local park at 9.00 in the morning to participate in a 5 km run. Afterwards, I like to eat at Jonty’s with three of my best friends. We feel we deserve a big breakfast after our run and enjoy catching up with each other’s news over a leisurely meal together.
So if you are in Sheffield, I hope you will find Jonty’s and enjoy it as much as I do.

‘Dine Excellence’ is the largest restaurant in our city, and this is my favourite eatery in my area. This place offers a great dining experience and the view, both inside and outside, is spectacular. This is a beautiful restaurant with a great price and a clean environment. I often go there to enjoy my meal with my wife and sometimes with my friends.
It is a four-storied restaurant, and the 2nd floor is reserved for parties and special events. The playground for children is large enough, and many toys are placed there for children to have fun. The rooftop is my favourite as it gives a clear view of the surrounding nature and the clear blue sky. I enjoy my dinner on the rooftop if it is not raining. The interior decoration of the restaurant is something that makes it stand out from the crowd. The soft music, delicious dishes and well-mannered and prompt staff make it a worth visiting place for food lovers.
The variety of dishes this restaurant offers is another great thing about it. Someone will find almost any local or famous foreign menu there and the master cooks make the food tasty and worth enjoying. Interestingly, the price of the food in this restaurant is comparatively cheaper and that’s the main reason I love this restaurant so much – it is indeed pocket-friendly. Many other restaurants in my city offer delightful dishes and good services, but most are expensive.
The weekly music concert and discount for regular customers are two other reasons I prefer it more than other restaurants. I was amazed to get as high as 30-35% discount on a few occasions, and they told me that this was their way of rewarding loyal customers. I would recommend anyone in this city to enjoy the delicious menu this restaurant offers, and I am sure most of them would love the experience.
