I believe that the photos in the menu should be so that the customer can see what this dish looks like. These photos of food arouse your appetite, and you want to eat right away, even if you did not plan to. Usually,
I always focus on the photo and decide whether I like this dish and whether I want to order it. Maybe I’m wrong, but I’m so influenced by photos of food on the menu.
When I walk down the street and see a photo of a juicy burger on food truck, I cannot pass by and go to order this burger. This is how marketing works. Of course, to avoid disappointment, the dishes in reality should at least slightly match the dishes in the photo.
