    You're not kidding! Not least, the alarming "We enjoyed a traditional Italian cousin for dinner"! I think people need to be warned about cannibal dishes at this (fortunately fictitious) restaurant!

    I liked the idea of the decor being 'adequately stunning'. I shall try to find an opportunity soon to use those complimentary words.

    No need to confine yourself to decor. You'll find plenty of chances in current politics I think.

    Re: I am writing in regards to wonderful services

    Please check my corrections of the model answer below:

    It was one of my friends' birthday so we decided to celebrate it at your restaurant. We visited your restaurant on 29th July, at around 7.30 pm, due to prompted by its convenient location and a good reputation for delicious food. I am glad that we picked your place.

    Five of us went to your eatery There were five of us and we enjoyed a traditional Italian cousin cuisine for dinner and a special black forest cake from your restaurant. for dessert. It really did was worth the money we paid because I suppose you have hired the best chef in the town! The service of the waiters was also marvellous. They were truly well-mannered, organised and skilled in serving food. On top of that, the interior design of your place is adequately stunning.

    We also realised how preciously well you treat your customers when my friend got a chocolate box as a birthday gift on behalf of from your restaurant. That truly made our day.

    I hope the authorities management of your restaurant will always ensure this keep up the excellent service and food to all its guests.

    The original model is beyond correction, ted.
    It needs re-writing completely.
