- As a matter of grammar, they seems fine.
but, as I noticed, you 'incidently' use an english word there:

B: Ah, Yasmine, nama nice
should be
B: Ah, Yasmine, nama yang bagus sekali

and some words are mis-spelled:
Oh, Mihad, kenalkan ini teman , Dia bersal dari Mesir!
should be
Oh, Mihad, kenalkan ini teman saya, dia berasal dari Mesir!

B: Siapa nama saundara? and
B: Apa Pekerjaan saundara?
should be
B: Siapa nama saudara? and
B: Apa pekerjaan saudara?

Saya bitang film. Dan Kamu?
should be
Saya bintang film. Dan kamu?


and this part of conversation is not clear

B: Mau minum apa?

C: Bukan, terima Kasih

to politely refuse, say something like:
Tidak perlu repot-repot, terima kasih.

A: Ya, terima kasih

to accept the offer, mention what kind of drink you want to ask, because Mihad ask what kind of drink they want, not specifically offer one kind of drink:
Air putih saja cukup, terima kasih.
or
Bisakah saya minta teh (/kopi)?

B: Silakan Minum

A : Terima Kasih
