Sample letter

Dear Sir,

I celebrated my 25th birthday with my friends and family in your restaurant last week and I am writing to thank you for making it a grand success. I really appreciate the excellent service provided by your people.

My friends and family enjoyed every aspect of the party. We, in particular, loved the food. It was mouth-watering to say the least. The perfect service complemented the food and made it even tastier. All of my guests absolutely loved the North Indian and the Italian foods served at the party. I must also mention the kind service provided by your staff. They were extremely polite and went out of their way to ensure that we were comfortable. The ambiance was quite relaxing and the decoration beautiful. In fact, the flowers and the scents used for the party were my favourites.

I have absolutely no complaints about the food or the service, but I feel that it would be great if you could add more parking space to the restaurant.

Once again, thank you so much for the best service.

Yours sincerely

Manav Mehta
