Dear Ms. Levi,
I really liked the way you described the restaurants and it was lovely to read about them.
I have a restaurant in Epsom, surrey called Everest Spice Nepalese and Indian Restaurant and recently joined with livebookings and bookatable. I am just wondering if there is any chance of you coming to this area and give a visit to Everest Spice. I am trying to promote the restaurant to finest diners and as you may already know the restaurant is ranked no.1 in surrey by tripadvisor.
