This one is two times more than that one.
The dishes were 3 times more than it's now.
There were 3 times as much dishes as there are now.

Hello everybody these are my own sentences and may seem easy but I really need help to use these structures. Are these sentences above correct?
Thank you in advance.

(Sorry for the title but I can't change it now.)

    I'm afraid not. In the first two sentences you need to specify your comparison. Two times more what? More expensive?

    In the third sentence, I believe, you need to use a quantifier for countable nouns: There were three times as many dishes as there are now​.

    Ok Berly from Northallerton, what I was trying to ask is how can make a comparison of amounts.I understand my third sentence shoould be "as many as".
    But I'm still confused about first two.
    "There were 2 times more dishes than right now." Can I ask that like this?
