Konnichiwa Sensei: Ogenki Desu ka?
When going to a Japanese Restaurant, how would you say: "Table for two please".
Is it = "Taberu wa ni-jin o kudasia".
Was this question helpful to you?

はい、げんきです。ありがとう！ (HAI, GENKI DESU. ARIGATOU!)
You can count tables as general/abstract objects, so ひとつ (HITOTSU = one) is used in this case. (See Course 1 / Lesson 11).
Then two people are counted as ふたり (FUTARI : See Course 2/Lesson 4).
Actually it sounds better to say 〜をおねがいします。(- O ONEGAISHIMASU = Would you give me -) when you ask for a table at a restaurant.
So the sentence would be like this.
、おねがいします。 (TEEBURU O
, ONEGAI SHIMASU)
= One table, please.
You can aslo say;
, ONEGAI SHIMASU) = Two (people), please.
Please remember that particles are not necessary after
Have a nice meal at a Japanese restaurant!
