CPE 2016 Restaurant Review Sample
I was recently invited to have dinner in one of the best Italian restaurants in Hong Kong: Van Gogh Kitchen, which is situated on the second floor of a multi-storey building in the busy Nathan Road.
What makes this restaurant so special is its unique decoration, inspired on Van Gogh´s works of art. For example, the main room has been styled to resemble “Night Cafe”; the 1888 oil painting which depics a red-walled cosy cafe with a huge billiard table in the middle of the place.
The menu offers a wide range of appetizers and main courses, all italian and mouth-watering. As starters, I chose to eat the “scallop carpaccio crab meat temple” and the “wild mushroom soup”, while my friend ordered “baked polenta” served with spicy sausages and cannellini beans. For the main dishes, we ordered the chef’s specialty “chilled Australia lamb shoulder rack”. The food was delicious and perfect in color, flavor and taste. This superb 5-star-meal was perfectly crowned with Tiramisu and european creme brulee, our all-time favourite desserts.
Equally important is, of course, the service of the restaurant. The waiters and waitresses are hospitable and cordial, and their constant amiable smiles undoubtedly win the hearts of customers. Slight disappoiting was, however, having to wait a considerable amount of time for the food to arrive.
The price of this Italian cuisine was also reasonably high. Nevertheless, it is worth waiting and paying for such special dishes that can bring us joyful times. With tasty food and good service, I enjoyed a pleasant dining experience with my friend in a comfortable homelike and artisty atmosphere. I therefore strongly recommend going there.
