I pay attention to the atmosphere in a dining establishment along with the food. If the atmosphere is relaxed I think it makes the food more enjoyable. I do not like a place that is so moisey you can't carry on a conversation too. I think talking while eating also makes the meal more enjoyable.

Yes,the place must be clean. If the place is not clean its just reflect how they prefer the foods. It doesnt have to be so grandiose but it must be well kept.

It depends on the purpose of my eating out. If I have something urgent to do, and it is the lunch time,I will not care about the dining environment.Under this situation, A fast food restaurant is Ok. I can deal with it with a bowl of noodles, a sandwich, and a bottle of soda water.WE EAT TO LIVE. lol.. If I dine with my firends, i will choose some places where comfort is the top priority.Cos, under such an circumstance,we can relax completely. If I have a dinner with some one for business. I will pay close attention to the environment. Sometimes the environment is more important than the food itself.Most often, we do not know if the food is good or not after we finish our dinner. Many times I have to go to some other place to find some food to eat . Cos I am still hungry after this kind of FORMAL dinner.

I usually like to note a restaurants decor as well as what they serve for food. Sometimes it's the atmosphere of the place that makes the meal even more enjoyable. I love to go to Chinese & Japanese restaurants. The decor always makes it such a pleasant experience just because the decor is usually oriental and gives you a full flavor of the total experience. Sometimes the decor is better than the meal, but the decor makes it worth it sometimes.

Well if the price of food expensive then the ambiance should be well designed too. Also the service should not be ignored and the preparation of food must also done with passion too. But when my budget is too tight I just make myself enjoy food that my money could buy. I think in that situation I don't have to be picky and be contented with the place that the food is being served. But still even if the place could not be so good in look, it should be clean enough to make me fell safe with food that I'm eating. And that what counts our health and safety in every thing we take inside our body.
