Since you apparently haven't even started learning Japanese yet and you're already starting the process of obtaining Japanese citizenship (while on a tourist visa waiver...), you might want to get started; they actually require you to have a modicum of Japanese proficiency before they will give you citizenship.

The answer is

食べましょう or 食べよう

Romaji, not romanji.

"How Interesting .. "
Nante omoshiroi, Nanto omoshiroi, Nante kyōmibukai, Nanto kyōmibukai, or more slangy Chō omoshirē, Chō sugē

Although Mike's translation is correct for the volitional "let's eat!", the most common phrase said before eating would be "itadakimasu." It doesn't have the same volitional meaning as the English, which doesn't have a set phrase for this situation, so it's often written as "let's eat!" so there can be something in the subtitles.

It does help to emphasize the fact that there is practically no question regarding "How do you say XXX in Japanese?" where the proper response isn't "What's the context?"

I was referring to the romaji transliteration of the Japanese sentences on Google Tranaslate, not the English translation. It's often relatively accurate, at least far better than translation. My another two cents.


And you can't even translate or transliterate these simple sentences. A nice humble reply, indeed...

You don't have to be sarcastic.

The way to get a good translation for a given context is to give the context when you ask for the translation. Otherwise you're going to get the same literal translations that Google provides.
