The tearoom serves 220 covers and several table turns per day.

I have only 翻台for two words, so who can tell me what's the difference between the two i.e covers and table turns please?

    Hi, could you please provide us with the source and what you wanted to say? You would do better to tell us a bit more of the information needed to answer your question. Any language, whatever it is, is accepted as long as "covers" and "table turns" can be explained.
    the difference between the two i.e covers and table turns please?
    This is a bit of a nebulous question I suppose.

    Cover (charge)
    • an additional charge made by a restaurant for providing entertainment:a cover charge of twenty dollars.

    • a fee, in addition to the cost of food and drink, charged by a restaurant, nightclub, etc., for entertainment. Also called cover. Cf. minimum (def. 4).

    Most restaurants here don't charge a "cover" unless they're also showcasing some sort of live entertainment. I don't think "serve ## covers" is idiomatic.

    In the restaurant industry, the term "cover" refers to a diner who eats or a meal that is served. A cover differs from a table in that it represents only one of the meals served at that table. It differs from a dish in that it includes the extras that a diner orders, such as drinks, appetizers and desserts. (The Top Five Basic Services a Customer Needs at a Restaurant)
