I like Indian food. Hyderabadi dum biriyani served hot is my favorite. I prefer restaurants to be clean with good ambiance and refreshing music.

Actually I prefer to sit in restaurants with good view in open areas

I like Thai food.

I like korean restaurant and kimchi-chige!

Hi everyone, i have a doubt about the audio so i hope that someone can help me. When the staff says 'I can do half past seven or nine', instead of it, could i say 'i can do at half past seven or at nine'? or with 'at' the sentence sounds forced?

Hi belen2020,

In informal language, 'I can do' followed by a time is  quite common:

I can do Tuesday morning.

I can do 7.30 tomorrow.

The meaning is similar to 'I can manage...' or 'I can accept...'

 

If you use a preposition then you should use a different verb:

I can finish it by Tuesday morning.

I can meet at 7.30 tomorrow.
