Thanks For The Food In Japanese

How do you say “Let’s eat!” or “Thank you [very much] for the food!” in Japanese?

I always want to say thank you for food, but I want to know it in Japanese =)

For ‘let’s eat’, one would normally say ‘itadakimasu’ (literally, I humbly receive) and for ‘thank-you for the food’, we say ‘gochiso-sama deshita’ (thanking the person who has worked to prepare or pay for the food). You could also say ‘oishikatta desu’ meaning ‘it was delicous’. All of these can be used at any level of familiarity – a friend or a senior work contact for example – and they are prnounced just as they are written, pronouncing every syllable/vowel. e.g. ee-ta-da-kee-ma-soo.
