Kaylee: do you want to go out for dinner tonight?
Nathan: sure. Have you got anywhere in mind?
K: I'm starving, so maybe we could go somewhere with large portions.
N: that Italian restaurant in the city centre always has large portions. Do you want to go there?
K: I'm not really in the mood for Italian, actually. I was thinking of something a bit spicy.
N: if you want spicy food, then I'd recommend going to a Thai, Indian or Chinese restaurant. How about that Chinese buffet on Cowley Road?
K: I really like that restaurant; you get a lot for your money there. But, they've westernized their food, so it's not actually that spicy.
N: you're right. Most of their dishes have sweet sauces. We could try that Indian restaurant just down the road from us.
K: the Taj? They're a bit expensive, but they do serve large portions of very hot food.
N: the Taj it is then.
K: shall we bring our own bottle of wine to save some money?
N: they'll still charge us a corkage fee.
K: that's right. It'll probably work out to be about the same then anyway.
N: don't worry about money. I'll treat you tonight.
K: are you sure? We could go Dutch.
N: no, I'll pay. It's my turn anyway. You paid last time.
K: I won't argue with that! Let's go!
