  • Say what was good about the food and the service

Answer:

Dear Sir,

I am Ankit Singh, who visited your restaurant last weekend. I am writing this letter to extend my gratitude for being a generous host on Saturday evening.

We were a party of 6 classmates who had not met for last 10 years but somehow bumped into each other that afternoon. Since we could not book a table at the last moment, I thought of visiting your place, a decision I am proud of.

As you might have guessed, we were revelling a pleasantly surprising reunion of the friends after a long time.

For such a gathering, we found your place to be perfect. When we entered the restaurant, the helping staff greeted us with a welcome-drink and after listening to our story offered a poolside table. Mr. Singh was a perfect host who could suggest a perfect menu for each of us based on preferences. I must also appreciate the efforts your band puts in creating a tranquil yet positive mood.

We all thank you for the evening.  Looking forward to an excuse to visit the restaurant again.

Yours faithfully,

Ankit Singh
