In Mandarin, we will use a different way to say it: ‘You have what ….?’ For example:

You have what question?

Your restaurant has what special dish?

Here is a mistake of a student:

He wrote: Do you have any special dish in your restaurant?

Nǐmēn zài nǐmēn de cāntīng yǒu rènhé zhāopáicài ma?

你们在你们的餐厅有任何招牌菜吗?

The correct sentence : Your restaurant has what special dish?

nǐmēn de cāntīng yǒu shénme zhāopáicài ?

你们的餐厅有什么招牌菜?
