He says that in the past, people typically visited restaurants to celebrate special occasions, but now dining out has become a daily activity for many, especially in big cities, when they don't want to cook, or just crave restaurant offerings.

There is also a trend of people dining out alone, or with one or two companions, instead of a large group, he adds. Thus, diners are more particular about their dining experience, and not only want delicious food, but also a pleasant dining environment and attentive service, he says.

In Manbo, diners can indulge themselves.

The restaurant, in a tiny alley, has a private room for eight people, and an open area for about 20-30 diners, besides a kitchen and a bar area. And, covered with a blanket of soft light, the dark-colored wooden tables and stools, the fresh flowers and dainty tableware, the busy chefs in Japanese-style clothing and the aromatic flavors escaping from the kitchen that faces the entrance in the restaurant create a cozy, inviting atmosphere, and tempt customers to explore what lies inside.

Manbo has 50 dishes on its menu and a wide range of drinks, ranging from rice wine to tea. The pictures of every dish on the menu look eye-catching.

Moreover, every dish is served in a small portion, perfect for one person or a couple to share.
