I've been told that to say that you want something is considered incredibly rude and childish. At least, in Japan it's supposed to be.

Japanese usually uses more indirect constructions to convey such ideas.

I'd use it with friends but it would be a little blunt with strangers (just like"i want a glass of water" would be in english)
