Transcripts

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!

It is Ashark Al awsat restaurant in Yemen.

My favorite restaurant is japanese

My favourite kind of restaurant is Italian and Arabic.

i keen on our uzbek national restourant. chiefly because there are very delicious, attractive, nutrional meals. in addition to not expensive. my daughters are fans of uzbek meals like norin and halim. preparing these meals is very difficult. thats why I can not ask to my wife preparing at home.

If I travel to another country, First I will look for a Peruvian restaurant, but as well I can try some foreign food.

Hello, I have several kinds of restaurant. I like pastas, pizza, barbecue and gourmet food. I prefer gourmet food because I isn´t to preparing in my home.
I like eating beef, pork and fish. I don't have a problem with the food.

Hello
I prefer Algerian food but not all. let s say the traditional ones

As I am keen on Pizza and Pasta, Italian restaurants are the best option for me. After that I tend to go to the restaurants which serve seafood to try the best taste of shrimp and lobster.

thanks so much from your team. i would appreciate that your hardworking. you asked us, which restuarant do you like, i would prefer small restuarant than the bigger and crowded ones. Bxz, in my country services were not perfect and dirty. the small ones are perfect.

My favorite is Azerbaijan food. I like to eat Sheki Piti. It is really delicious. Also I like Turkish and Azerbaijan sweets. Azerbaijan and Turkish pakhlava are really perfect. I like each one a lot.
