    order, make

    Background:
    When I was in a Malaysia resturant, I ordered my dinner.
    I sit down in there. I ate the food in there after the food ready.


    Question:
    Do I use "order" and "make" correctly?
    If not, any suggestions?


    Sentence:
    When I ordered the “fired chicken noodle”, I told a waiter that I didn't like salty food and asked him to talk to the chef to make it less salty.


    Thanks

    (NOT a teacher) Very good sentence. May I respectfully suggest a few changes: (1) it is spelled "fried" (2) "noodles" with an "s" (3) to make/cook them a little less salty.
