Staff: Hello, Gino's.

Jamie: Hi. Can I book a table for tomorrow night, please?

Staff: How many people is it for?

Jamie: Four.

Staff: And what time would you like?

Jamie: About eight, eight thirty maybe?

Staff: Let's see ... We're pretty busy tomorrow, so I can do half past seven or nine.

Jamie: Oh. OK, then. Half seven, please.

Staff: What name is it?

Jamie: Jamie.

Staff: J-A- ...?

Jamie: M-I-E

Staff: OK, so that's a table for four at half past seven tomorrow evening.

Jamie: Great. Thanks! Bye.

Staff: Bye.


Staff: Hello, Gino's.

Jamie: Hi, I called earlier to book a table for four and I was wondering if I can make it for six instead?

Staff: Ah, what name was it?

Jamie: It's Jamie.

Staff: Table for four at half past seven. So you want to change it to 6 o'clock?

Jamie: No, sorry. Can I make it for six people?

Staff: Oh, I see. Sorry! That shouldn't be a problem. I can move you to a bigger table but it will be nearer the kitchen. Is that OK?

Jamie: No problem. Is it possible to change the time as well? Make it a little bit later?

Staff: Ah ... yeah, we can. Is eight OK for you?

Jamie: Perfect, thanks!

Staff: Lovely. See you tomorrow, then.

Jamie: Thanks! Bye!

Staff: Thanks. Ciao!

I like a restaurant that can serve the meals from my hometown, Rasht of Iran. it is interesting to know Rasht is designated as members of the UNESCO Creative Cities Network in terms of Gastronomy on 11 December 2015! to tell the truth, when I am hungry at outdoor, I prefer to have delicious fast foods such as cheeseburger. and I can't wait for finding my mother town foods!!!
I agree with you, Especially Baghalighatogh! Thanks for explain about rasht, i'm sorry about has a little information about my country!

Actually, I was a girl who love to travel around the world, so I like to taste all kinds of different meals from a wide variety of countries. As a matter of fact, I love the Japanese cuisine the most because its meal and ingredients are fit to my favorite.

I like to eat very much, I want to try many kinds of food in the world. Especially, Vietnamese food make me lot of impressions. If you can at least visit Vietnam on time, you must stay there in 1 month and try your best to eat
