This video is a school project for their English class, in Norway. The waiter is a girl originally from Cambodia and the two customers are Norwegian girls, so you can notice they have different accents (the Norwegian girls sound more British because their native language is more similar to English).

The conversation is quite good, they're practising not only how to order food at a restaurant, but also relationships (one girl is very nice, the other one is kind of nasty). They use British English but a few times they slip some American expressions into the conversation.
