Size of these deep plates are pefect for any restaurant-style setup, but i prefer to use it for my raman soup or noddles. Design and shape are the way i wanted. Because of the large size, it feel heavy but I prefer to use little heavy plates & I like the way it is. Want more items with same size and shape. I have bought both -black and white & happy with my purchase. Delivery was on time & packaging was done nicely. Thank you and waiting for more Deep Plates & Raman Bowls.
