Model Answer 1:
Paris is a multicultural city. 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 a corner of the city and a new Asian restaurant has opened its branch here. I will describe the event now.

The restaurant belongs a South Asian country named Bangladesh. The restaurant is titled as Sonar Bangla Restaurant. It sells various types of traditional Bangladeshi foods. The restaurant is located on the south corner of Paris. This is a residential and semi-commercial area, and there are potentials that the locality will be a commercial are someday. So, commercial institutions are settling up here. And as part of the activity, the restaurant is opened. The restaurant is run by a businessman of that country and has few other branches across Europe. To meet my curiosity, I visited the restaurant with my fiancé and had a nice experience there.

The restaurant offers a good number of Bangladeshi foods. Most of the foods are the traditional one. But they use too much spices on the foods to increase the taste. Some of the foods are extremely spicy. When I went there, I ordered for a beef kebab and traditional paratha. The kebab was delicious. In fact, the spices used in the preparation have raised the taste. On the other side, my fiancé ordered for plain rice with chicken curry. The preparation was exceptionally good. They brought the rice with smoke around while the curry was moderate. Besides, there were some other types of traditional foods of that country like polaw (a type of steamed rice of special grain), chicken curries, beef curries, mutton curries, beef and chicken kebabs, traditional drinks, vegetables, salads and more. Further, the prices of the foods were cheaper than the ordinary restaurants in Paris. The service they provided was adorable as well.

The restaurant has a grand look. The outer decoration is done according to the traditional style of Bangladesh. And the inner decoration has a classic look. The inner decoration is the combination of European and Asian designs. There is a classy look in everywhere of the restaurant. There is a grand entrance to welcome the visitors. An attendant welcomes the guest after their arrival and serves with the menu. Besides, I liked their seating arrangements. The restaurant authority knows about privacy and thus there are arrangements for cabins and open spaces. If need privacy, you can use the cabins and they are really comfortable. Serving the foods is a kind of art, and they are the best so far to me in this category. It appeared that they have a sense of fineness and they have expressed the fineness by their activities.

This is a splendid restaurant. Everything appeared very good and highly decorated. Besides, the quality of the foods is also superb. In fact, I have not experienced such a nice cooking before. Though the spices irritated me in the beginning, I was relaxed with them later. The traditional drink that they offered was also outstanding and beneficial for digestion. Furthermore, the location where the restaurant is situated is also excellent. I think the owner is a smart and intelligent individual and knows his business well. He takes care of each of his customers like an intimate friend. Considering all the aspects, it appears that the restaurant will shine in near future. It has already won the hearts of the local people.
