海外に行くと食事の量って苦労しますよね。

量を減らしてもらいたいときは、
例えば
Please reduce the size of the dish.
お皿のサイズを小さくしてください。

もしくは例えば、
半分にしてください、という場合は
Please serve the half size of the dish.
半分の量をください。

のように言ってもいいですね。

ご参考になれば幸いです^^

  • Could you make the portion (size) less for me, please?

このように言うこともできます。

"Could you 〜, please?" は「〜して頂けますか?」と、人に丁寧にお願いする時の表現になります。日常でもよく使われます。

"make A 〜" は「Aを〜の状態にする」ということを表します。

"portion" は「(食事などの)一人分の量、一人前」という意味です。"size"(量) は、あってもなくても良いです。

"less" は "little" の比較級で「より少なく」となります。

1. May I have a smaller portion of this please.
You could simply ask for a smaller portion of the item.

2,.Could you bring me less of this dish please, I can't eat all of it.
This is another way you can ask for a smaller portion, by asking for less.
1. May I have a smaller portion of this please.
率直に、量を減らしてくださいという事が出来ます。

2.Could you bring me less of this dish please, I can't eat all of it.
これは、もう一つの言い方で、量を少なくしてくださいという意味です。

Waiters and waitresses are very happy when they have a customer who knows exactly what they want.

If you can be totally specific in a restaurant or cafe, then the proceedings should go very smoothly
- as long as your requests are not 'non-standard.'

"It seems like a very big portion that is served for this dish! Could you serve me a small portion only please?"
"Yes madam, certainly!"
ウェイター、ウェイトレスは、自分の注文をしっかりわかっている人を応対するのはとても嬉しいものです。も
し、レストランやカフェで、すごく細かい注文をしても、要望が標準的なものであれば、プロセスがすごくスムースに行われるでしょう。


"It seems like a very big portion that is served for this dish! Could you serve me a small portion only please?"
さらに盛られた料理がすごく大きそうです。もうちょっと小さいサイズで出してもらえますか?お願いします。
"Yes madam, certainly!"
もちろんです。

Its always important to ask politely. Politeness can always be achieved by adding the adverb 'please' to your question. Politeness is definitely required when requesting to be served the half portion due to the fact that its not standard practice for the restaurant to serve this dish as a half portion. In the first request, you start with 'I like this dish but'. You are actually saying 'although I like this dish', please serve me with only half of it.
So you may say:
I like this dish but serve me with only half of it please.
or
Please serve me with just half of this dish.
丁寧に尋ねることはどんな時でも重要です。副詞のpleaseを質問に追加することで、丁寧に礼儀正しくなります。量を半分にして提供することはレストランにとって通常している行為ではないので、量を半分にして欲しいと頼む時は絶対に礼儀正しさが求められます。
最初のリクエストで、まず最初に'I like this dish but'. (この料理が好きなのですが)と言います。
'although I like this dish', please serve me with only half of it.(この料理が好きなのですが、半分の量だけください。)
つまり、次のように言うことができます:
I like this dish but serve me with only half of it please.(この料理が好きなのですが、半分の量だけください。)
または
Please serve me with just half of this dish.(この料理の半分の量だけください。)

Portion: an amount of something.

If you do not think you can eat the entire dish, you can just ask to have a smaller portion size. For example you can say, "Could I please have, half of this portion size?" or "I would like to have a smaller portion please."

  • Please make my servings small, I'm eating light.

    play icon

In a restaurant portion or serving is used to refer to how much food is served. The above sentences can be used to inform the waiter or waitress about the portion sizes, you would like. When you say I'm eating light it means you are eating small portions of food.

Example Sentence:
A: Please make my servings small, I'm eating light.
B: Okay, sir.

  • I don't have a large appetite. Could I please have a child's portion?

    play icon

  • Could I please just have a child's portion if you have that?

    play icon

Some restaurants serve "children's portions" of meals, which is cheaper and a smaller amount of food on the plate. Your appetite is how much you are able to eat on a particular occasion. A "portion" is the amount of food that is given to a person at a meal. You can also say that you do not want to leave food on the plate, or waste food.
