This is more of role play than a traditional game. It takes a lot of instruction the first couple of times. It can be played by 3 to 5 students: one waiter, one hostess, one or two guests, and possibly a role play instructor. You need a minimum of 3 students and a game instructor. The game instructor can be a student or the teacher. The role play takes some preparation, so it can be divided into two lessons, one for preparation and talk about food and one with role play.
