Daily English - At the Restaurant

It's very important to prepare how to order food at the restaurant, and how to make a complaint when you don't like their service.

  • Is everything OK?
  • Actually, this chicken is not well-done.
  • Oh, I'm sorry. Let me take it back. What about yours?
  • Mine's fine, thanks. But this vegetable's not fresh.
  • Oh, I'm sorry. I'll take care of that right away.

Ways to order meat:

  • How would you like your beef done?
  • Well-done/medium/rare please.
  • How do you like your eggs done?
  • Hard boiled/hard over/sunny side up/over easy/poached/scrambled please.
