waiting staff at Maharani

This delightful local Indian restaurant has a notice in the window: waiting staff wanted...

The food is truly wonderful and I'm thinking about approaching them. I sent the info to my sister who is ex-hospital but she suggests I should go for it myself. I'm a bit nervous. What do you think?

I only worked waiting tables for a week before something in my profession came up, and it was pretty demanding work physically, but I got a lot out of it - including a developing a better appreciation for the culture, picking up a few words and customs, and getting a couple of good dishes. I'd recommend it.
