How to order food in English by phone
While picking up the phone to order food can feel stressful, the thought of having delicious food delivered to your door makes it much more bearable! If you’re anything like me, you’re likely rehearsing what to say over the phone every time you need to make a phone call – even if it’s to order a pizza.
So, to make ordering your food easier for you, we’ve taken the time to write down what a conversation or dialogue like that may look like when ordering food in English by phone.
You: Hello! I’d like to place an order for delivery, please.
Waiter: Hi! Perfect. What’s the delivery address?
You: The delivery address is…
Waiter: Ok, great! What can I get started for you?
You: I’ll have one large pepperoni pizza, one order of mozzarella sticks, and a large bottle of Coca-Cola.
Waiter: Would you like something for dessert? We have a promotion for our chocolate ice cream. You can get it for just $ 2.50 with a large pizza. Shall I add it to your order?
You: Yes, please! Chocolate ice cream sounds delicious!
Waiter: Can I add something else for you?
You: No, thank you. That’ll be all. How much is it?
Waiter: It’ll be $ 32.50. You can pay by card at delivery. Your order will arrive in around 40 minutes at [delivery address].
You: Thank you!
