Wonderful game... to a point.
by MrDare on 2021/03/01 21:11
Beautifully designed. Fun. Intuitive. Little contests to keep life interesting. BUT. Like EVERY other game I have played of this genre, you just get priced out. By the time you get to Paris, you got to use upgrades OFTEN to finish levels. You get upgrades by paying money. Listen, friends... this system could be OK with you. You could be OK continually investing funds in your games. I grew up with Nintendo... I fundamentally reject our gaming culture today, so know where I am coming from. I want to pay one price, one time, and not have my games turn into a monthly expenditure on my budget sheet. Either way... have fun, and stay healthy. Developers: great job, but you drank the Kool-Aid.
Can’t play event level
by keziah21 on 2021/02/28 07:32
I enjoyed this game for a while but can’t play continually cuz it’s just shut down very often or event level. Pls fix this bug ASAP!!!
Love the game
by Kelli Shref on 2021/02/27 12:34
Love the game! I’m waiting on a new city! I haven’t been able to complete all 3 stars, so that gives me something to play. Love that there are extra things to play, food truck, food court. For everyone saying it is impossible to win without spending money...not true!! I haven’t spent any $ and I’m sitting on 4300 spoons. I would have given it a 5 if the tiers gave the correct amount of spoons. Many times on tier 2 & 3 I only get one spoon. It would also be nice to ask for lives more often. It would also be nice if we could add people that are not Facebook friends.
Needs some Rule Changes
by Buttercupmami on 2021/02/27 12:22
This is a cool game and quite enjoyable. The one thing that I would change is the money that you make in one place should transfer if you reached the end!!
Cool but..........
by TillieCupcake on 2021/02/26 23:32
ya it’s cool but... ......... you have to wait for like forever!?!? Please fix The download times. Overall this game is so cool! This is how I feel about it:😃😃😃🙂🙂🙂😃😃😃🙂🙂🙂😜😜😜😃😃😃; I like how you get to cook I love to cook 👩‍🍳 -your follower
Crashing
by Kdsmith128 on 2021/02/22 15:53
Last two days it is constantly crashing! Very frustrating
It is a good game, but has become unstable
by Pooka Nator 14 on 2021/02/22 12:32
It is an enjoyable game to play, but there are definitely levels that it won’t let you pass without using spoons (even if you use a bonus). Know that upfront and you can control your frustration level haha. I am in Amsterdam and it may take awhile to get through this country as the game crashes after one or two games. This has been going on since the ill-fated Valentine’s bonus game that did nothing but crash. I emailed them but the suggestions they gave seemed like they didn’t even try to solve it (and others had the same issue). I really wish they would try to figure out why the game has become so unstable, it’s almost unplayable 😔.
Best Game Out There!
by iYarelisx3 on 2021/02/22 05:03
I must say the graphics in this game is the best. I love how detailed every aspect of this game is. The best part? Absolutely no ADs! I hate waiting on ads & the fact that this game doesn’t have any, just makes it so much better. I like that you can earn spoons in a lot of ways & there really is no reason to have to pay money for boost when there are so many ways to earn them. Reading through other reviews, I see a lot of people talk about how some levels are way too hard & having to use boost but I mean, it’s a game, it’s meant to be hard. I don’t really see a downfall, I mean yes it’s frustrating but you can play extra shifts to earn money or spoons & use those boosts. I was definitely upset that you couldn’t transfer your money from one country to the next but it makes sense. If we could transfer money from one country to the other, than we’d be able to upgrade real fast & I feel like that would take the fun away from having to re-earn that money. Overall, this game is so amazing & I wish I could find more games like this. I would definitely recommend people to download & play.
Cooking
by megs51 on 2021/02/19 16:56
I hate the game at first It is super easy but when you get to level 31 they make you play level 29 it’s impossible I’ve tried like 23 times and still didn’t pass:(
2 ⭐️ for entertainment value (at the beginning)
by juggalettekt1422 on 2021/02/19 04:30
This game starts off fun but as soon as you get to later levels- they intentionally make it impossible to win without spending money. It was fun for awhile so they get 2 stars but I’m uninstalling. I’ve played this game a few years and it’s just getting more annoying. I’m going to play street food tycoon instead.
Update?
by tysm38 on 2021/02/19 03:05
Why does it keep saying there’s an update when there isn’t?
Adore this game!
by Genie576 on 2021/02/18 18:02
This is one of the games I play every single day. In fact I’ve finished all the levels and am hoping a new country is launched soon! I love the graphics. The developers put a lot of attention in the details. Every time I play a level I notice something new — whether it’s a character or the bubbles in a pot on a stove. It’s one of the things that makes this app stand out from other similar games. While there are in app purchases available, I appreciate that the game does allow you to collect spoons over time so you don’t have to spend money to buy the boosts if you can’t afford it. Other games force you to pay and I abandon those apps pretty quickly. Overall you will really enjoy this app!
Ok
by Pixiepoo117 on 2021/02/17 15:39
Love the game when I’m able to play, sometimes it takes months before they get a new level.So annoying!!
Love Cooking Craze
by Tutibaker on 2021/02/17 06:07
I absolutely LOVE this game, however, I’m not so happy about one of the changes. There used to be several different chances to gain free lives but, for some reason, that has changed. Not sure why but I don’t like it. It gives me less opportunity to play the game...
Best Cooking Game ever
by cookie monster133 on 2021/02/15 23:28
it will keep u entertained
Overcharged multiple times
by bigfanofthispodcast on 2021/02/15 16:12
Unfortunately while I love this game, I cannot recommend it to others. Two times when I tried to purchase spoons which were marked $9.99, I was charged between $40 and $45 to my bank account. This is fraud and I can’t recommend that others play this game if it steals from you. I made a support ticket so we will see what happens
Many levels are impossible to win without “extras “
by Karma's Mama on 2021/02/14 16:30
This is a very challenging game, the graphics are great, but for the most part it is practically impossible to progress unless you either buy the spoons, or if you’re lucky enough to win enough to use for a boost, then you can progress. Perfect example is I just used 35 spoons that were almost impossible to “win “for an extra 35 secondsAnd the time jumped so i did not win. If you look on Facebook thousands of people are saying the same types of things, they just don’t post them here. They really should say that this game requires money to complete. They do not set the level so that they are in any way shape or form able to be one just on your own. That’s like playing a game outside and having to get four of your neighbors to sub for you because you’re not good enough. What is the point of that? Ridiculous
Great

Way to help pass the time during quarantine!
Too many glitches
by Kokd on 2021/02/13 23:57
The app just shuts off on its own while I’m playing and every bonus game just glitches out. Can’t play a single bonus game
Used to be great, but crashes constantly now
by KT3294 on 2021/02/13 20:45
I really liked this game when it first came out. But it seems like every time it gets an update it runs worse. After the latest update I can only play one level before the game crashes and restarts. I’ve tried everything suggested in the help article (closed all other apps, uninstalled and reinstalled the game, etc.) but it still constantly crashes. I’ve emailed support but never got a response.
The Best Cooking Game
by nickname really WF on 2021/02/13 17:19
I love this game it is so much fun. The game doesn't glitch and it’s very challenging! It go will definitely have you up all night playing!!
Definitely cheats so you’ll have to spend money.
by Livyyymarie11 on 2021/02/13 16:28
This game is fun and all, but the developers definitely made it to where you’ll HAVE to purchase extra spoons to complete a level. Customers will stop coming while the time is still going before you complete the goal and that’s so vile,lol. Also the game is really laggy and slow when they update.
More diversity
by Urban Temple on 2021/02/13 15:11
Love the game, but can we add more African countries and Caribbean islands to the mix.... Jamaica, Haiti, DR, Congo, Senegal, Nigeria, Somalia. There are so much diverse foods in East of these countries that would be great for this game
Really fun
by ddddddddddddd1 on 2021/02/13 10:06
I think cooking craze is really fun. The only thing I don’t like about it is that you have to repeat hard levels that took forever to figure out to get tickets 🎫. I think the first time you pass the level you should not have to pass it again.
Love this game!
by Upsydayz on 2021/02/13 02:03
Love this game. Only wish is that new levels came out faster and that there were more tournaments.
Heartbroken
by Tired Mom PA on 2021/02/13 00:51
I have loved this game since the beginning. I think it’s been 5 years. I have taken note of the many changes since then. Used to be able to keep unlimited cupcakes and get more every 4 hours-now it’s 12. Some levels impossible to win even with boosts, but I was able to educate myself on how to keep using those boosts to a minimum. I would wait and see what I would get with the daily gift. I do not like being “forced to participate in tournaments . I had taken to just waiting until they were over before playing again. There are some extra events to help you get more prizes, nut I ended up using more spoons. I started skipping these events as well. But the straw that broke this camel’s back was having the amount of spoons earned on each level. There are 3 levels within in level. The first time you play a particular level (1 star) you would get 1 spoon; on the 2nd level/star you would get 2 and the 3rd-you would get 3: total of 6. For 10 levels you would get 60. Was nice, but recently I noticed that I was only getting 1 for each level. Couldn’t believe it. I even sent a support message -no response after 4 days. This is hands down the best game I have ever played and it just really upsets me- all the changes the developers have made. Does anyone think about the customers any more? I have spent plenty of money on this game and don’t mind-I have just paced myself. I know the realities of game play. But this last change just about killed my love of this game-poof!-I deleted the game. May download it again in the future, but not anytime soon. Bummer!😩
Update
by deemarrie64 on 2021/02/12 23:58
I recently installed the update , however now the game will not open. I don not want to delete it because I will lose my progress since I didn’t connect it to anything. I love the game please help
Crashing
by tj_226t on 2021/02/11 18:32
Since the new update, the entire game is crashing as soon as opening it.
Infinite lives glitch!
by Raladyy on 2021/02/11 03:36
I love this game BUT LATELY after the update I haven’t been getting my full amount of infinite life! Literally just won a 30 minute infinite life from the delivery boxes, played one level and lost and the infinite time just disappeared and I lost a life! PLEASE FIX IT ASAP!!!!!!!
Very fun
by YanniLSR on 2021/02/10 13:34
I must say this is a very fun game. Very addictive. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that I feel when you use your boosters and pass a board you should still be able to use the same picks.
Grate game
by reversal.fn on 2021/02/10 04:10
Grate ya e
Not able to click on an order
by hskfoen on 2021/02/10 02:50
Ughh it just started after this last update! Super sad cause I play this game everyday guess it’s time to delete
Spoon Issue
by VN1254 on 2021/02/10 00:45
Ever since my last update, my spoons keep periodically disappearing without me spending them on any extras. Somehow I went from about 120 to 16 and have no idea how this happened. It is so hard to earn those and they are needed for so many of your levels because you make them so difficult that this is extremely frustrating and disappointing.
Keeps shutting off after update

Remains my favorite
by Flower mom on 2021/02/09 05:53
Many games come and go. I have favorite games that I constantly play - but eventually I get bored as it’s the same thing over and over. This game remains my favorite because it’s constantly changing as every country I visit has different foods to prepare. This keeps the game challenging and I have yet to get bored. ❤️
Amazing game!!!
by ermaleche on 2021/02/09 02:58
I loooove this game. I never write reviews but this game is too good to not give praise to. I’ve had this game for years and it has consistently been a favorite. It never gets boring because of the many side games and the different countries you can play in. I also love that spoons can actually be earned in a way that makes sense so you aren’t forced to buy spoons. Most games make it almost impossible to win unless you pay some money but I’ve never felt that with this one. It has hard levels that can be challenging but they aren’t impossible and that makes it very fun. I’ve made it all the way to Mexico City and have never had to pay a penny. It also doesn’t have a ridiculous amount of annoying ads. Definitely a 5 star game that I would totally recommend!!
It’s great BUT
by Trum123 on 2021/02/08 23:04
I just wish you could carry your winnings to every new level. It’s pretty unfair that all the coins you earn you can’t take with you.
Expensive
by sindi018 on 2021/02/08 23:00
Do not download this game. I already spent more than $200 just to continue playing.
Lately
by ne504ne on 2021/02/08 22:42
Absolutely love this game,but in the last 2-3 weeks I’ve been making purchases an winning levels an not receiving my spoons. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. Other than that. I love it
I’m confused
by DeLaBritt on 2021/02/08 02:11
As I play the game every so often it ask me to update it but when I come to the store it’s no update available and when I try to get free spoons and I click watch video it does nothing please fix this bug
STILL won’t work
by pretty in pink : ) on 2021/02/07 16:47
This is a great game but I cannot sign in and play it just gives me an error message. No one has responded with any useful information at all. How can you just ignore something like this?!?
Fun for a bit, then way too hard
by OMGWTF144 on 2021/02/06 20:59
I play lots of games and I appreciate a challenge, but I am of the opinion that this game creates obstacles that are not able to be overcome without the purchase of assisting items for real world money. After about 4 levels, it get so hard that it doesn’t seem possible to proceed without spending money.
Don’t bother
by KJB865 on 2021/02/05 19:38
This game is fun to play and it is a great multitasking game but it will ANNOY the crap out of you to log into FB and when you do you loose ALL the things you have ‘bought’ and won in the game and it takes everything away from you.
Killing me!
by 10rlsmo31 on 2021/02/03 21:22
Y’all are KILLING ME not getting new cities out! It’s been WEEKS. You’re going to lose players if you can’t keep up!
Great Game!
by Nice102505 on 2021/02/03 19:46
Very fun game LOVE the Challenges & Rewards! However, players should be able to pause their “Free Time”. Once I had 3 hours of free time and had to let 2 hours go because I had other things to attend to. Pausing free time will allow players to utilize the time well.
Game is expensive
by emilystyles171294 on 2021/02/03 17:13
I love this game however I think I’m going to have to move on. It has cost me so much money and now that I’m in Tokyo they don’t even send you enough customers to be able to win so you are forced to pay with 35 spoons just to get 3 more customers and then that’s not even enough! And like other people have complained about - when you move to another city you don’t get to take your points with you. Those are hard earned points! I wish I could continue to play because it is a fun game but my wallet is empty.
Enjoy Game But.......
by BMB007 on 2021/02/02 22:47
Game is not calculating beverages served right now, not the first time this has happened in competition. Also levels are getting way to hard to complete. Love a challenge but, some are just way to hard. Last thing, not everyone is on Facebook nor wants to be. Should not be in daily tasks!!!!, never received my bonus 2-2-2021 for logging in all day , showed up but no bonus, what gives with you guys, also again not not everyone is on Facebook, quit making it a task, I have spent so much money on your game, be fair

Coins
by Jamaikaluv on 2021/02/02 17:29
I love the game but why the money don’t transfer .. it just money sitting each level can y’all please make those funds available to buy things such spoons r the extras instead of just the spoons
Pay to play
by Missingdice on 2021/02/02 01:03
When you go back to max out all the levels it will have to serve 37 customers but only give you 35 customers meaning no matter how well you play the round your forced to use extra customer bonuses to even win.
My review
by Anynemous1 on 2021/02/01 22:58
Good game but the downside of it is it depends on lives and you can’t take your coins with you from one city to another, also the events are very hard because the customers don’t wait as you go up in levels.
Fun game; too many bugs
by Daniel Rules the World on 2021/01/31 23:32
Was great until I got to Tokyo. Now it crashes constantly. Sometimes I can’t even get a single level to load. Sent an email and got back a form letter saying too many complaints to respond to individually?! Hoping they work the bugs out soon. Very frustrating!
Used to Have Help
by sbbmoon on 2021/01/31 21:45
I’ve been playing this game for years. In the past, anytime there was a glitch I contacted support and they got back to me promptly and with an answer. For the last year, support sends out a robot answer with no help. The game crashes more than it stays up. Trying to play just one game is horrible because it takes me 4-5 times to reboot. Don’t waste your time
New levels
by kkstks on 2021/01/31 19:29
Need new levels I made it to the last level. Gotta make more then one level at a time cause it’s takes for forever for a new level to come out.

Hi. I love this game but the “updating” seems to be going slow lately. I’ve played all cities, all levels but now the “coming soon” messege for a new city lately it doesn’t update for a couple of months now. It wasn’t always this slow. Thanks 🤦‍♀️

Impossible to pass now
by Titio4444 on 2021/01/26 15:54
I’m at level 76 (like most) Cape Town and still cannot pass it. But realize I will never pass it bc it’s actually impossible to pass if you have no boosts at higher levels. Have never bought any coins or upgrades so I think that’s why they’re making it impossible for me to pass it bc realizing they want me to buy boosts now! Ridiculous bc I’ve been playing this game for a long time and loving it. Hate the game now when it’s sneaky tactics to get you to buy boosts etc.

by Pew Pew Master6294 on 2021/01/24 05:56
Maybe I’m just bad at this game but every time there’s a timed level, you have to upgrade which can get very annoying. Other than that it’s a pretty fun game, just maybe increase the
It's a love hate relationship
by sassy neshh on 2021/01/24 00:16
I love this game but I don't like that you earn so many coins and sometimes don't spend them all and you can't take them to a new city not when a portion. I don't think that fair at all. I also hate when somethings are just unclickeable on levels no matter what you do. Definitely needs to be some changes an or updates

Cooking craze
by Rosanne723 on 2021/01/22 02:47
I love this game but wish if I find an area too hard, that I can still move to other cites. Right now I’m at a stalemate! Can’t move forward due to the part I’m at is just too hard to complete. Too many ingredients to each dish and not enough time to complete. I used all my “spoons” to buy boosts and spent real money too and nothing helped get over this hard patch. Won’t do that again!! No game is worth using my hard earned money on, especially at times like this and ALL I HAVE ARE GAMES AND TV. No income at all right now! So with nothing else to do I wish my favorite game would allow me to open new cities without having to complete the current one! That’s why I gave a 2-star rating!! So my favorite game may become my worst game if I can’t move forward!
Does not work anymore

by larotayo123 on 2021/01/22 01:25

Annoying
by Herculicious on 2021/01/21 21:04
I used to REALLY enjoy this game until the introduction of the combo levels. The game was totally fine before and the combo levels are complete TRASH. I didn’t play for months because of this and now every time I hit I combo level I turn the game off for a long time. You always have to purchase SOMETHING to get through the combo levels. I begging you the developer to delete these horrid levels so we can go back to enjoying whipping in the kitchen.
Been playing for years!
by 20155 on 2021/01/21 16:56
Ive had this game for so long and I’ll continue to play. The details are great and the new cities keep it new and interesting. Some levels are tougher than others, but I love the challenge. I’ve never had to pay for spoons because I’ve gotten so many from easier levels.
Great game, but...
by RunnerMomx3 on 2021/01/21 04:39
I really do not like the new “Combo” levels. It drives me nuts that the only way to get past them is by utilizing a boost.
Great game but, some issues
by Dragons Rule😎 on 2021/01/21 00:27
I really love cooking craze, I would spend hours everyday day working on levels. I have had this game for years and I loved the settings and back grounds but, they had to change it to the more animated version. I will always continue to play the game but I would appreciate it if the screen went back to normal. Other than that, great game guys!!😜
Absolutely love
by Riy&Zoi'sMommy on 2021/01/20 22:08
I absolutely love this game! Although I gave 5 stars, I just wish it didn’t cost so many spoons to buy the boost we need for the different levels! You have to play for forever to reach 50!
It’s great!
by Lizzie~Puffs on 2021/01/20 06:08
I think that this app is very entertaining and it’s great for car trips or just for when your bored, but be warned it gets more and more difficult. Speaking of witch when trying to get a new restaurant or more levels than it’s hard because of the increase of difficulty, one time it took me a whole day - at least when I had time - to get to then next levels when I need to get tickets. But overall it’s a GREAT game 😁
LOVE
by Kpm31 on 2021/01/20 04:06
I love this game!! It’s fun and addictive. I love the boosts and details. I like that it’s hard but with practice and sometimes luck you can eventually beat the hard levels without having to pay to play. My one and only complaint is that I wish the developers could drop new cities more often. Or give each city more than 3 restaurants. I’ve beat all the levels and anxiously awaiting more. Good job big fish. I’m hooked.
So Much Fun! 😀

This is the only game that makes me want to buy an iTunes card. So much fun
Love it!!!

I play it every day and I have referred others to play it. Addictive for sure and tons of fun!!!

Excelente jueguito
Best game!
by Veronycah on 2021/01/19 22:44
It’s pretty much just amazing! Most games I end up deleting because you have to fork over money when in this game it gives you the opportunity to accumulate more coins with “extra shifts”. The only downfall to it is you only get a certain amount of lives. Ones those are used you have to wait a certain time period to get more. I wish it were unlimited lives. Kind of need them for the harder levels. Other than that it’s hands down the best game I’ve downloaded! Please do not ever get rid of this game!
My favorite cell phone game!
by Lisa40278 on 2021/01/19 21:47
This game is the perfect cooking game. It is the only cooking game that isn’t pay to win. Your Facebook friends can send you extra time and customers that would otherwise cost you money. You can gladly have my Facebook data to save me a few bucks on hard levels (haha).
Soooo addicting

This game is what has been keeping me stress free during quarantine. It is so fun and I can’t stop playing.
Game didn’t work?
by IslandK9 on 2021/01/19 16:51
The game is not working, fix it please
It’s okay
by Krystle1227 on 2021/01/17 02:26
I like if but I also get very mad all the time at weird things so like when I lose this game or when I can’t get something on it or just being on a time limit for doing something to ow and also I’m just saying I have to be doing a lot of things at once so just sitting down and play this makes it fun because this game has all thing people that you have to all get food at once so for me it’s a ✔️ and a ❌
Game glitches
by mandasaurus123 on 2021/01/16 22:19
Anybody else having trouble with levels in the later cities. When I’m playing It won’t allow me to select certain items for the entirety of the level and then I have to start the game over
Mixed Feelings
by Tayislit on 2021/01/16 14:18
Overall this is a great game! I like the challenges and tournaments! You can replay levels and more! You learn what each coutries cuisine (IDK if I used the right word) is! People may not even realize, but you if really pay attention, you can learn a lot from this game! I have played this game for about a year now, and have never felt the need to write a review! Until now, that is... So, you know how you can do those “daily tasks” right? Yeah, so, some of them aren’t even possible! Like some of them say 60 likes from your costumers! First off, most challenges don’t even asks for likes, and I know you can go back levels and coutries looking for those purple levels. But it’s very limited and hard to find those levels! Specially for you are only on New York or something! Please fix that! Some levels are IMPOSSIBLE and you are kinda FORCED to buy bonuses! Like, the heck!? I had this one level, and (I’m not even lying) I tried 20 something times, and didn’t pass it! I had to save up for spoons for a week or so to buy a burn proofer thingy! Like, you should be able to get pass EVERY level without having to try 20 something times! You also lose your rank the tournament levels if you don’t win something! I was in sous chef level, and was knocked down to Prep cook! The heck!?
Good but bad
by Cr&se on 2021/01/16 05:34
I love this game but it is very frustrating and it makes me want to throw my phone 😡🤬
So Fun!
by Stepnflee on 2019/06/21 01:49
I gotta say, this is my absolute favorite game I’ve ever downloaded on the App Store. It’s super fun and addictive. I appreciate all the details they put into every country and the different ways to cook the foods and the ability to earn boosts / spoons in a way that I think is fair. Other games I’ve played pretty much force a player to pay but I’ve never really felt that with this game. You just have to be patient and keep plugging away at the levels or the weekly challenges to earn those extra boosts. Personally I’ve never had too many issues with it, sometimes it does freeze but very rarely for me and it’s usually if I lost a level. It does glitch out on occasion where if I use a boost and then lose, the next time I try that level or any other level I’ve lost, my boost will reactivate. Sooo I guess I’m not really complaining about that glitch as much lol. I will say that the levels where you have to make a certain amount of money can be a little annoying / frustrating but I usually wait until I either have infinite lives so I can keep trying to beat that level or play extra shifts to earn enough money to upgrade my stuff so that I can earn more money. I think the thing I appreciate the most about this game are the weekly challenges, they are so fun and keep the game interesting for me, especially since I’m still only in Rome at the moment. So thank you to the creators for making such a fun game and continually adding updates!
Stole 300 spoons from me
by Sakermelis on 2020/07/27 14:35
I am updating my review because I have run into another problem. I am in Spain, on the last restaurant, and every time I go to add lemons to the paella or serve a drink, it won’t work. It is extremely frustrating. It makes me lose levels I would otherwise easily win. This is not acceptable. It is not my device. My iPad works on every other level and food item. Please fix this or I won’t be able to play anymore. Ever since I have gotten a surplus of spoons the game has done everything it can to make me spend them. Trying to trick people in to spending their hard earned spoons is despicable. The game does not do these tricks when you are low on spoons. Only when you have an abundance. There was a pop up telling me that I had an upgrade for a kitchen product and I had no choice but to accept. Stealing 300 of my spoons. You also don’t have the option of watching an ad to gain a new life if you have spoons. Why should I be punished for earning spoons or in this case actually purchasing them? When you are trying to trick me I don’t feel inclined to spend more money on spoons. Quite the opposite actually. I will never spend another dime on this game. Had I actually gone through my spoons on my own and felt like I was still in control , I might consider contributing to your game, because I am getting entertainment out of it. But I have no desire to be tricked out of my hard earned money.
Multi Taskers Heaven
by Alana360 on 2020/12/29 15:07
I don’t appreciate that I have to put in a lot of personal information just to contact support. Why do you need to know my birth year and full name and email just so I can tell you that I can’t click on an object—again—and I’m losing games because of it? This continues to happen in various cities; certain objects become impossible to click on no matter how many times you try, whether you click directly on or all around it, and this is a very fast paced game Ive been playing for a year and a half. On the slow levels there is no difficulty clicking on these items, yet when it’s a faster level with more challenge suddenly the third waffle maker in Amsterdam simply won’t register my touch, or the three sausages crammed together in Germany won’t let me select the correct one. EXTREMELY ANNOYING. DEVELOPERS THIS IS YOU. AND YOU DONT NEED ALL MY PERSONAL INFO FOR THAT. However, other reviewers hit the nails on the head with beautiful graphics and fun levels. Yes sometimes it’s hard to beat a level and gets super annoying but I keep playing because this game feeds a need in my brain to do a million things at once quickly and come out on top. No you don’t have to spend money to do it, just be persistent and play the “free” levels to upgrade your items and keep at it. Lots of good dining out ideas; I’ve found a ton of new restaurants and tried a lot of new foods thanks to this game.
Challenging and fun!
by Rawrrritskarrr on 2020/10/07 23:46
I love this game. It’s got a ton of levels and individual events as well. It seems very well made. You don’t have to watch ads unless you want extras in the game, which is really nice. A lot of games make you watch an ad in between each round/level, which gets annoying. It is very difficult at points, which I appreciate, because that’s hard to find in free mobile games. But it is possible to pass really hard levels if you use strategy and do the 3 bonus tasks every day. It seems like some levels are a little harder than they need to be, though. I feel like some are literally impossible without a lot of boosts, mainly because you have to serve a certain amount of customers in a period of time that seems too short. But like I said, with enough patience and strategy, I’ve been able to pass ones I’ve thought were impossible. The only issue I’ve had with the game is the fact that over the past several days, no matter what I do, whenever I open the map, I get the leaderboard result of an event that ended like a week ago, and is no longer relevant. I can’t get it to stop popping up, but I am able to close it. That’s a really small gripe though, something I’m sure will get sorted out in the next update. I’m a little confused as to why Pac-Man is in the icon now, but I guess I’ll find out eventually? Haha.
Good game in the beginning
by Sev Bear on 2018/04/04 15:05
I’ll start by saying this is a good game overall. I’m impressed with the responsiveness, graphics, and overall fun it has been to play this game. I also enjoy the ability to earn spoons as you progress on new levels. Again I enjoy playing and the game is one of my most played when I need to unwind. My issue is with the difficulty as you progress to the higher levels. I understand a certain amount of challenge in the group of 40 for each restaurant, but when I can’t complete a level because the game doesn’t factor enough people within the time limit or I don’t make enough money as the goal because customers only ask for one item for all 4 on the screen, this is when I have to say enough is enough. In the levels for Athens and beyond, I see this more and more (Mexico City, Tokyo, Shanghai, Moscow). I can only progress when I use my boosts that I’ve been trying to save for later cities, but I have to use 2-3 at a time to make it through then the next level is the exact same goal with 5 seconds less than you had previously. Please fix this. I really do enjoy playing this game, but it might just end up being another app that I get frustrated with and delete because it’s too difficult. Thanks for reading this and I hope to see a fix in an update soon.
We all love this game!! BUT.........
by Jessylee717 on 2018/02/09 18:50
Adding to my review!! So I’m in Paris level 21... there is no way of passing this level without putting money it to it only because they don’t give you enough costumers which is a bad big turn off for me!! That right there might just make me stop playing the game!! It’s unfair and upsetting!!! I too love this game, it’s a lot of fun and the challenge is great but unfortunately very unfair. I started reading everyone’s reviews and I have to agree with every single review!! I do have one other thing that’s annoying that I didn’t see much complaining about. When I lose instead of going back to map it gets stuck, not frozen because I’m still able to cook, but it won’t bring me back to the map so I have to get off the game close it out completely and then start again, it’s happened to be a couple of times but last night it happen when I was playing a bonus round I made about 1,000 bucks but since it got stuck and I had to get off I lost the money I made. It’s it upsetting. I did write to them I’m not sure if they will get back to me hopefully they will. It’s sad because I really do like to play but if they don’t take what everyone is saying into consideration then I’m going to have to stop playing as well. It’s not worth getting frustrated!! I could just go play one of the other millions of game out there. So please I hope you guys look at we are all writing and do the right thing!! Thank you!!
Best Cooking Game Available
by island_boy2000 on 2020/05/09 16:54
Nearly a year ago now, I discovered this amazing time management cooking game. There is no doubt, this is the best one out there on the App Store — nothing even comes close in my opinion. Currently cooking my way through Jerusalem and enjoying every moment I play! The colorful and detailed graphics, characters and even city maps are created by the app designers with great attention to detail. In my opinion, they also balance making the game challenging but not overly frustrating. For me it is been a great escape from the stress of everyday life. My only suggestion for improvement is adding cities more frequently. Having played the game for a while now, I have noticed cities are added around every 2-3 months now rather than on a monthly basis. Really enjoying this game but quickly running out of cities, even after trying to ‘ration’ the remaining levels by dragging them out. I know a lot goes into designing these amazing cities but it would be amazing if they could be added just a little more quickly! Nonetheless, I really love this game and it is definitely one of the best games out there, period.
Fun Concept, sketchy Execution
by mrkcook on 2017/11/15 13:28
So I love this game, the design is fun and its overall a great game, but I have some big issues with it that WILL stop me from playing. My 1st issue is that when you travel to a new country, none of your money is taken with you, which makes the money you made previously unimportant, especially if you got all the upgrades. For example, when I left New York to go to Paris, I had over 80k coins, and now in Paris I have to start fresh. Normally I wouldnt mind, but the paris levels are incredibly unforgiving and without much pay off. By level 10 you need already a lot of upgrades so you constantly have to replay the same mundane levels. So, it would be nice if there was some form of currency conversion. Like I could use my 80k to get, say 20k of the paris coins. Something like that. Now, my next point, and possibly my biggest issue with the game isn’t difficultly but rather, impossibility. In many of the Paris levels (and some of the NY levels), when your goal is to get “likes” they dont give you enough customers to achieve that goal. Say you need 12 likes, they will only give you 11 customers so you HAVE to use a power boost of +3 customers which is ridiculous. This isnt a matter of, “oh I didnt perform fast enough” because it often isnt timed and you just dont get enough customers. Its a ridiculous money scam, and poor game development that needs to be fixed.
Stuck
by Blissful Eyes on 2017/12/18 18:51
I really like this game. I would say that it’s one of my favorites because it is the great mixture of challenging and quick paced. I have a few issues and that’s what caused me to knock off two stars for what should be a five star review. As I said, it’s fun and I could play for hours and I have before. But my problem is 1) when going to a new world, you lose all your coins from the previous world. Because it’s also supposed to be harder levels it’s harder to upgrade and advance to new levels. That for me isn’t too big of a deal but it’s definitely not my favorite thing. I’m not saying I should keep all my coins but I shouldn’t have to leave them all behind, especially since I had about 90k when I left NY. 2) But my biggest issue is that I’m stuck on this level and I’ve upgraded all the things available to me to the highest level possible and I’m losing the level by 40 or 50 coins. I might be able to win if I had a boost but I don’t have enough spoons to buy one. If you’re going to have a level, make it possible for someone to win without any boosts, especially if that person upgraded everything in the “restaurant” to the highest level. EDIT: I got past the level I had trouble with but now I’m having trouble 2 different levels in Paris. I can’t seem to get enough customers in the 60 seconds. Like I’m 5 away from winning the level. I’ve used free boosts given to me like insta cook do it’s not me. It’s the game. The game won’t let me win the game. I’ve given up.
Stop being greedy
by Pita4ever on 2019/05/27 03:38
I think this is one of the best designed cooking games and it used to be my favorite. I would have given a 5 star review, however The last few updates have caused levels to be impossible to pass unless you drop real money on boosts. Which I will sometimes but not again. Since the last update when you replay a level that you used a boost on it automatically steals your boosts. Example used the coin double boost passed the level went to the next. Did NOT use a boost, replayed the level and it forced me to use my double coin boost on a level I just need to serve customers. The challenges are almost impossible unless you use boosts which is not fair. I stopped playing them because once you get to a certain point they do not give you enough time on the clock, enough customers etc. example... had 20 sec left on the clock and only one customer came out. Any other time they are back to back. Stop being greedy. If you keep making us pay to pass levels we will just stop playing. I have been stuck on one level in New Orleans for 3 days because I refuse to drop another dime on this game. It would be nice to use our coins earned in the game for boosts and not just upgrades..the coins earned once all upgrades are purchased are useless. Allow them to carry over or be used to purchase boosts.
Fun for a while
by Mfaith1983 on 2018/03/11 01:40
UPDATE to point out major flaw. Game forces you to waste 35 spoons when you choose to pay for 3 more customers or 30 more seconds but you already have something cooking. When it restarts you, your customers are gone meaning you automatically burn whatever you were making when you “lost.” So sick of using spoons for no reason. Needs to be fixed. It’s a fun game for a while. Until you leave NY and none of your money comes with you. Even then, you can survive for a while if you are willing to play the extra shifts over and over for hours to buy the necessary upgrades to pass the levels. Even then, there are extra shifts that you will pass the first time you play and then suddenly not be able to beat the second time even though everything is exactly the same. If you aren’t willing to spend money to continue playing, I’d suggest not getting hooked on this game. I’m not exaggerating when I say it takes HOURS to build up enough coins to buy upgrades. I will admit the developers are genius at getting players to spend money. I still refuse to pay, so I will probably delete it now that I’ve been trying to get past the same spot for weeks. If you’re making a time management game, make it that. Allow players to be rewarded sufficiently when they are technically beating the levels to continue playing. If you want to make a paid game, charge me to download it.
I USED TO Love this game - an update review
by kckranzzz on 2018/04/29 21:56
My previous review is below for all to read but I would like to update this review to include the updated in the game. The updates have pretty much ruined the game for me. I’ve been playing for jeez like, almost a year now I think? No less than 9 months without a doubt and prior to the update it was perfect. Some levels are challenging but not IMPOSSIBLE if you really try your best. Finishing up Dublin because there are no more locations to travel to at the moment and some of those levels are literally impossible without a paid upgrade and then some. It has become so frustrating I find myself closing the game to play others even when I have lives left. Something I would not previously do. If you want to alienate your previous fan base, this is how you do it. You don’t gain ANY money if you lose a level, it’s impossible to beat a level just doing your best without upgrades. It’s quite frustrating. I’ve thought of uninstalling however I do love this game. Please give us new locations! I have passed all locations and waiting for the next! Also I agree, the trash should not be double tap. It makes no sense and is the only non-user friendly part of this game. Some levels were hard, yes but I cannot wait until the new destinations!
Fun to start but.........
by Q8ee21 on 2020/01/20 19:53
I wrote a review the first time I played and was disappointed at how much money you have to spend. This was a BIG complaint by many ppl so I quit playing for a while. I gave it some time and tried again and did better. Either the creators listened to their customer base or I got better :) I worked the system, spent a bit of money and really loved it. But I have to say it’s gotten a bit ridiculous. I’m on the Greece level and I defy the makers of this game to play the last restaurant’s levels without a ton of boosts. I’m pretty good and fast and I’m telling ya EVERY level on that restaurant needed a boost or even several to get the ticket. Totally stuck without them. No way to make money to upgrade no way to go back to do it. That really sucked. I kept playing to see if it was just a few hard levels, because yeah there are a few, but seriously it was nuts. I’m gonna try the next country, to see if it was just this one. They could really help things along if they allowed money to transfer to other countries. Then you could tackle the harder levels if you got stuck. Might take some time but you could do it. Even if it wasn’t an exact exchange the money on past levels wouldn’t be wasted. If the next country is this bad they’ve lost me as a fan.
Wonderful time management game except....
by Tee Cee 8 on 2018/02/07 13:03
Except there are still bugs and fixes that need to worked on. 1. For example I can double tap on some of the “correct” food items to serve the customers and it won’t serve them. Better yet that food goes straight into the trash, which has cost me to fail many levels, especially the bonus restaurant level which is my favorite part of this entire game. I wish the bonus restaurants didn’t take so long to unlock, 4 hrs. This happens allll the time and frustrates me so much, because of this I’ve lost several times. I have to tap food over and over again. But sometimes I think they designed it that way for you to lose levels. 2. Also, after I’ve been fully upgraded and you have to pass the levels based on dollars, some levels you just can’t pass until you purchase like two and sometimes three boosters. That’s insane. 3. Also, they added a limit to the cupcakes that were very useful. 4. After reading a lot of reviews we are all pretty saying the same thing. I’m very new to this game, level 97 New York but I don’t have a desire to progress, I’m going to just keep playing the bonus restaurant that unlocks every 4 hrs, which at first before a few days ago every 3 hrs.
Done now
by Mikmoo007 on 2017/11/09 02:27
Edit: i now have to be done with the game. They have a ridiculous policy where you must update to play and i keep getting so close to finishing all the levels only to be required to update to keep playing and new levels added. I find this unbelievably aggravating and will not give a single dollar to support this game again. Even worse, their updates take a ridiculous amount of time to install, have to be done in several stages , and then you have to update EVERY SINGLE RESTAURANT when you have to play old content. Yes, one at a time. This is the most ridiculous update system i have ever come across. I have to say- THIS GAME IS AMAZING!!! This is how games should be designed. I came to here from Cooking Fever because of the awful way they have their gem system set up. I have been a fanatical player since- about two weeks now. At first, I didn't like how it was different: it seemed just a bit too easy. But there are challenges and it gets better as you progress and best of all: you can play and actually earn their premium currency. They have a great support team that was so friendly and extremely helpful the first time I hit a roadblock in my play and it was just an amazing time. I will be staying with this game and buying from them for a LONG time.
Addictive up to a point
by Daisypond on 2017/09/06 21:46
I became immediately addicted to this game, I like the fast paced challenge it offers. However, it does have some things I feel need to be fixed such as cooking something for a customer and then someone else walks up and it gives your meal to that person instead, sometimes forcing you to lose the level (repeatedly). Also, the fact that you can't carry over the coins that you've earned from playing is unfair and should be fixed. My biggest gripe is with the Rio level. Most of this level includes you having to cook rice as a sometimes side dish. The problem is that you can't just cook three servings of rice and have it sitting there waiting to serve when needed like with sides in all the other levels...in Rio you have to cook individually portions one by one and only as needed which is impossible to anticipate. Instead, a "person" walks up, wants his beans with rice so only then is when you can start cooking it and time is already ticking down. On top of this, since you can't place the rice where you want it, it ends up wasting dinners, often causing you to lose the entire level. I'm seriously considering giving up the entire game due to the Rio level. It's truly frustrating and since it's only a game, not worth the aggravation (or the money!)
PLEASE LISTEN TO ALL OF THESE REVIEWS
by Vita32813 on 2018/06/08 08:25
Like many of you have said I too agree with all the reviews I’ve read!! The currency switch up for me was the most shocking. I swore my money would roll over, in fact I re-did multiple extra levels just to build up my bank to take to Paris. I expected the prices to go up as I went further as the upgrades were costing THOUSANDS, which I found UNFAIR. When I got to Paris I noticed that even in the beginning levels they wanted 6500 when the levels only paid out 320 coins, if that! TOTALLY UNFAIR. Please make the upgrades affordable! Also I can’t stand when I only have 15-20 minutes to play and I activate an unlimited lives and it’s wasted because I put the phone down. It should be like the boosters and just add up to be used when I really need them. We should get more spoons than just one at a time, especially since they are used to subsidize coins for upgrades. I noticed that in Paris there are 31 or however many levels( haven’t gotten further yet) until the restaurant changes. In NY after 10 levels you moved off of donuts onto hamburgers and hotdogs then onto eggs and pancakes etc.., but Paris you’re playing the sameee croissants and custard for 30+ levels smh we need some consistency. I HAVE ALMOST DELETED THIS GAME THAT I LOVE MULTIPLE TIMES- PLEASE FIX THESE MINOR ISSUES
Best Game Out There!
by iYarelisx3 on 2021/02/22 05:03
I must say the graphics in this game is the best. I love how detailed every aspect of this game is. The best part? Absolutely no ADs! I hate waiting on ads & the fact that this game doesn’t have any, just makes it so much better. I like that you can earn spoons in a lot of ways & there really is no reason to have to pay money for boost when there are so many ways to earn them. Reading through other reviews, I see a lot of people talk about how some levels are way too hard & having to use boost but I mean, it’s a game, it’s meant to be hard. I don’t really see a downfall, I mean yes it’s frustrating but you can play extra shifts to earn money or spoons & use those boosts. I was definitely upset that you couldn’t transfer your money from one country to the next but it makes sense. If we could transfer money from one country to the other, than we’d be able to upgrade real fast & I feel like that would take the fun away from having to re-earn that money. Overall, this game is so amazing & I wish I could find more games like this. I would definitely recommend people to download & play.
Great game but new update freezes and limits
by Luvthisgame2 on 2018/02/11 06:40
I fell in Love with the game because of its easy to play but not have to get broke playing it quality. I wish I could have given it a 5* but this new update has brought it down. The game design is good and the levels do get increasingly hard, but the best part of this game was that kept me playing was the ability to play without having to buy a package every minute; you bought a package either by playing extra shifts or with cask when you got stuck on a level and that was only a few times. I understand you need to get paid, though. Also, this game never froze for me and I played it for over an hour straight daily. Now the game is frozen when I open it, when I select a level, in the middle of game play and at the ending of a game. It also doesn’t allow me to scroll back and make more money in previous levels like I used to be able to with working extra shifts. Also, why is there a cap of 25 cupcakes? I understand 50, but 25 is kinda low for a cap on cupcakes, you can use that alone on the bonus round. Please, the game I love so much, I have been having to put down and try and find another game to play due to all these changes. Kindly make an adjustment, especially for the freezing issue. Thank you.
Fun game

I really enjoy the game. It's challenging. I don't like that I don't get to decide which plate an item tapped is added to, or which customer gets served. I've never had to spend real money to advance in the game (and I'm all the way to Munich), but it can be a real challenge to earn enough money or enough likes to advance through some levels. Strategic use of boosters and cupcakes is a must. Replaying finished levels is a bit boring, but at least you can earn free boosters by completing daily challenges. On the whole, I'd say if you like time management games, this one is definitely worth a try. Of similar games, I like the gameplay of Cooking Fever better, but that game is a true money-grubber and they never update it. **Adding a couple of dislikes: The newest cities, such as London and Munich, have some levels that are truly impossible to pass without boosts. Over 80 plates to serve with 65 seconds on the clock is ridiculous and unfair. I don’t like that the money I’ve earned in completed cities is useless. There should be some kind of conversion that gives me some value for those coins in new cities. I also really dislike that I have to re-download every single restaurant every time there’s a game update.
You need money
by yeahyeahnono on 2017/09/10 22:45
I love the game so much but can't seem progress further than the burger levels because I need "spoons" which can only be earned at certain levels, which become locked after you play them once, or you must wait til " jobs become available ". The other way to get spoons is to pay actual money and I don't think that's right to ask, in order to progress in a free game. The game fails me from progressing for stupid reasons out of my control. 2 examples.. one time the game will say, ran out of customers! Add more? And it costs 35 spoons which is hard to get. Well, say I build up 35 spoons. Ok, I replay the level to progress.. I spend the 35 spoons to add more customers. I serve a few people.. Then it pops up yet another message. Again!!! Ran out of customers. Please pay another 35 spoons. Really? The second example.. the game will say ran out of time. Buy more time? Same scenario. You buy time with spoons or clocks.. both which are hard to get once you've played up to say, level 28. So I'm stuck. I just keep playing the same levels over and over again, hoping one day the developers will publish an update to allow me to progress without spending actual money, because I really would like to experience the other restaurants...
Use to play everyday - new update will make me uninstall
by kristin1838572927 on 2019/03/16 14:45
I am SO disappointed in this game now. I almost finished the New Orleans level and I’ve played this game for like 2-3 years now? The only game I’ve every continuously played in my life. Now whenever they update they purposely add something sketchy to it. They just “added” to the bonus level (the only time you can actually get money to upgrade) and made it to where you can’t accidentally click the wrong thing AT ALL. It’s so sleazy they would do that...I’m so sad that I have to uninstall this but when it’s not fun anymore because they ruined it, it’s not fun anymore. They also keep adding all these weird events that creates bugs like not saving your game progress and not being able to earn any rewards you get...one time I was trying to win the event and kept winning, they weren’t adding my score up, it was the same number after every level I won! This game originally had 5 stars from me, but yeah have to give it 1 for screwing over the people that have played this game since it started. Bottom line - don’t F with the bonus level...not cool. Bye Cooking Craze 👋
Pay to play
by Guardog781212 on 2019/02/14 01:31
This game is NOT worth blowing money on,the lives regenerate entirely too slow(every 30 mins for a life). They have made the later levels impossible to beat without boosts that cost money to purchase. This could have been (and still could be, if the developers care about what people say) a very entertaining game, if the hearts regenerated every 5-10 mins instead of every half hour,and they made the levels bearable without boosts. Why not listen to these reviews,and improve the game? People would actually continue to play this game instead of loading it,blowing through their lives,and getting frustrated enough to delete it. I’ve given it more time then I probably should have,but it’s on the chopping block to be deleted. There are far too many games in the App Store that are as entertaining,if not far more entertaining then this one,that don’t have as many flaws. 30 mins per heart is beyond ridiculous for a game on a phone. Come on developers,you have a decent format here,why not cut the greed down,and offer a product that people won’t delete after a few frustrating days? Fix the issues,and the 1 and 2 star ratings will rise,I guarantee it. You will get more players and revenue if you put a product out that people want to play,and keep players from deleting after a couple days.
I really like this game except...
by Puff-puff100 on 2020/08/19 18:15
I find some of the levels virtually impossible to beat without spending money to get more spoons because there’s no previous levels available to get more since you have beat them all. Another problem I have discovered which is not necessarily the games fault, but I have a iPhone and the bar to close the game is always in the bottom of the screen, which makes the sensitivity messed up, and you unable to click on items that are done, causing you to loose levels because you either burn something or can’t get the food out of the cooking area and customers leave. I may have to try to finish these levels on a tablet which will cause other problems because of the tablet size. Another issue I have found is that if you technically beat a level but the timer hasn’t run out and you make a mistake you loose the level. For example; serve 12 plates of food without trashing anything. I had 14/12 plates of food with time still in the clock and double clicked a plate and lost. Even though I had surpassed the amount of plates needed to pass the level.
Awesome game if things are fixed
by Rotty mom on 2017/11/18 03:53
I love the idea of the game but the way some of it is executed ruined it for me. One of the worst features of this game is the way you trash food. It's ridiculously easy to accidentally hit an item twice (which trashes the food), especially when you're timed and clicking the food fast, and then you lose the whole board and your life. Some people have an issue and our fingers jump without doing it on purpose. It should be that you have to drag the food to trash it. The other horrible feature is that our money isn't carried over into other countries. It's so very annoying when you start out with $0 and need 50 upgrades, (and yet you worked in the country before and have $90,000). To get those upgrades it takes an insanely long time to get them, and you have to play the same mundane boards over and over to even upgrade twice. I stopped playing because it's so very annoying. That and because some boards you can't beat without an instant chef hat no matter how quick and efficient you are. I wasted a lot of money doing it. The worst though is even with the highest upgrades it takes too long for the food to cook so it's impossible to beat certain boards without that instant food option. If these few things (which everyone seems to mention) were upgraded/fixed it would be an awesome game.
Can’t Win
by Brwnsugamc on 2018/03/03 16:12
Game is so difficult to beat at least at the Paris level. First level ability to win was reasonable, but you can’t build enough coins to update in Paris so you will play one level upwards of 50 to 60 times just to NOT get the golden ticket or lose all of your hearts in the process and have to wait forever to play again. I don’t understand why the coin rewards are so low that you can’t upgrade unless you play levels 700 times. I understand needing difficulty, but impossible is unnecessary. Why not charge people a flat fee to play games, instead of a free download that could end up costing 100’s of dollars just to get spoons and coins to play. Hell, I’d pay the cost of an X box or PlayStation game just to have the opportunity to play seamlessly and WIN every once in a while. Even following strategy you can’t win some levels because the cookers are too slow or you try to have foods on deck but the guests only want one type of thing so you end up burning stuff. If you don’t win levels, then no coins to update 🤷🏾‍♀️. Sad because the game is fun. I know money needs to be made but geeeez. Make it manageable.
Dislike the new update
by bwinsor2 on 2020/05/05 07:00
I’ve really been enjoying this game being on quarantine. It’s a good one to play for a little while here and there between the demands of my kids and my job, but I have to say I hate the new update. Now the upgrades pop up to tell me what is available to be upgraded. It’s super annoying. I now have to hit “cancel” 2-3 times every time I want to play a new level. When it first updated I wasn’t paying attention to what had popped up and accidentally clicked yes and spent 4,000 coins on an upgrade I didn’t want or need. I was SOO IRRITATED because I was closing in on the amount I needed for a more expensive upgrade. Like 9,000 or something and had to spend extra time in extra shift levels which are tedious. I also dislike the fact that when you go to a new area your money doesn’t go with you. You have to start over and the new upgrades are way more expensive. We’ll see if I keep playing much longer, but for now at least I guess I’ll keep going. Haven’t spent any real money on the game so that says something. I hate games that almost force you to spend money to keep going. I hardly use any of the power ups too so that’s nice.
Great as a calming tool/stress reliever
by RaveeBabee on 2019/11/15 23:56
I have never been into game apps, never played Candy Crush, that farm game or any of the other popular ones. When I would DL a game here & there I always deleted it within a day or two b/c the interest wasn’t there. I usually like word or mind games but I stumbled upon this game in 2017 and have been playing faithfully. This game is extremely organized, efficient, fun, has cool graphics and I’ve rarely encountered technical issues. I also love how culturally competent the creators of the dishes appear to strive to be; makes the game so much more authentic. I have never spent a dime in this game as the daily tasks and special events keep my inventory of spoons & boosts stacked. I do hate that they put a cap on the cupcakes but I’ve adjusted. I have a stressful career & sometimes I’ll stop to play for a few minutes at my desk to help de-stress. Clearing out jobs or tasks within the time frame help me feel better about not meeting my real deadlines at work lol. I also sometimes play at night before bed to wind down. I’m just waiting for them to add Havana as a city!!
Hits and misses
by Awestergren17 on 2020/07/06 20:47
I loved this game. Great way to clear your mind but there are a lot of issues. Some levels are so easy a toddler could complete them, then other levels, Tokyo in particular, are SO challenging you need 2 boosts to get through them. They always have other challenges you can do but I have zero interest in them because the money doesn’t help you at your current level. Currency changes with each country which is so dumb because there’s no reason to complete levels that don’t have golden tickets attached to them. Clearly it gets more challenging, which I appreciate, but I’m at a place now in Tokyo where I’m not willing to spend anymore REAL money to buy spoons and boosts and I can’t pass any levels without upgrades even though I’ve purchased several and they were always the “recommended” ones. I want it to be challenging, but I don’t think anyone actually tested Tokyo for them. Another complaint is that you can’t put some ingredients where you want them. You simply click and the game puts them wherever. This is incredibly pointless on the hard levels because then you can’t fill plates, you risk burning food, or needing to throw things away. If I could determine what went where, the game would still be challenging, but not impossible.
It's a decent game that has minor flaws.
by SMC_2013! on 2017/09/10 10:31
(9/10) Since my last review I've just dealt with the game makers not going to change the way the game is played but it wasn't as bad as it is now. I'm playing in Bangkok and this level is the worst of it. The game expects you to make 790$ in cash with only 12-15 customers. Even I've spent real money to buy boosts and you have to use (3) additional 3+ customers. At this point I don't mind spending a few dollars but to force me to use my money when the levels are designed like that I'd rather just uninstall. There's no other way to win the levels without it. (7/27) I agree with the previous post. This game is a very fun game but some of the levels are set up to force you to use a boost. I've played a level 3x perfectly but it's a timed round and not enough customers come in for the amount of one it's set thus you have to use a 30sec boost which I don't feel you should be forced to use it. The game overall is a good one and I would just adjust that if possible. I also agree on what topping goes on what and which customer it goes to. That brings it back to the game setting you up since if you have an angry cust and one that hasn't been waiting long the plate should go to the angry one...but the game decides. Please take into consideration.
Great concept but falls short
by Joselyn34 on 2018/01/11 21:09
I have been a big fish game player forever and usually they measure up. This game is fun and addicting for sure and I like a challenge but the expectations on some levels are made for you to fail. I’m not afraid to spend money and I will when a game doesn’t force me to. I am still in New York and these “need likes” levels are ridiculous. I have already spent money and have used the “add customers” on the last one I had to add customers 4 times in one level just to pass it. Not only do they not give you enough customers by far..but the amount of time they give you when each person is asking for a lot of stuff makes it impossible to get it all done in the time they give you. New people walk in and they are not in a line so it’s easy to lose who was “next” plus the food will go to the most unhappy person at the time anyways and that may not even be who you wanted it to go to. I get they are trying to make money but losing customers especially those who are willing to spend is the last thing they should be doing. And since I see in the reviews my same issues already being stated it’s obvious the concerns of the people don’t concern them one bit, so they have lost another one.
Awesome but would like some improvements
by crazyitaliancook on 2018/06/27 03:43
I LOVE THIS GAME! I’m a late night person and play when I have time and will play for hours! I’m in Moscow and I have hundred of thousands of coins in previous cities that don’t carry over and I have spent probably over $100 on boosts and spoons in the months I have been playing this game. However, would love to be able to use that money towards SOMETHING! Anything really! Also, I agree with others that the infinite lives should be treated as a boost to use whenever you want I have lost so many of the daily ones simply because I can’t play for 17 minutes right then or even an hour or whatever the time may be. That would be a fantastic change! I spend money on the game but would like to get a little more out of my hard earned coins that I have spent HOURS earning just to pass levels because I’m competitive and have this compulsive desire to be caught up on the cities before a new one comes! Please take it into consideration because it is very frustrating. Other than those issues, I enjoy this game way more than I probably should.
Bugs, bugs and more bugs.
by naomariell on 2019/02/12 22:44
So let me be honest by saying first that I really enjoyed this game for the past month I’ve played it. I even spent some money on spoons. Obviously, the developers cannot pass on the chance to make money off of the game as well. At the end of the day, it’s their job to make a game entertaining enough that makes you spend money on it. The levels are challenging when they need to be and unlike others who reviewed the game, I believe it’s only fair that some levels require some strategy when using boosts that you might get by exchanging spoons or winning tournaments. However, the game gets extremely frustrating when “random” things happen that affect the gameplay and even prizes. I am currently on level 70 in Rome and there was a tournament where I had to win 15 straight levels. Did it all, used boosts, extra time, extra customers and spoons so the game could at the end decide to completely “crash” and not give me any of the prizes I WON. This was all after multiple crashes and having to play levels over because it couldn’t successfully sync with Facebook. This game is in serious need of an update. I’ll update this review when that happens...I’m waiting.
Challenging and Fun 👍🏾
by Cfurlongue on 2018/02/03 16:23
Overall a fun game. Good amount of challenge but doesn’t feel impossible. Some of the levels do not feel like you can beat them without using boosters which means spending money, that’s annoying and my only complaint. For example having to serve 25 people in 35 seconds when each person has 3 orders, you have to buy more time even with a boost 🙄. The first restaurant in Tokyo was insane the sushi was really hard to see and thus made it hard to complete because I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the shapes. I almost gave up on the overall game because of it. One more thing, the bonus levels that you can play once you’ve completed a city are fun but we should be able to do something with all the extra money (like use it to buy boosts). I currently have 180k in NYC but can’t do anything with it. Maybe update that! Also it’s annoying when in bonus levels you’re given a certain dish to make or person to serve x amount of times but then those things never come up in the level which causes you to have to play bonus levels way more than you should.
Best cooking game by far!
by Beyonce8474 on 2017/11/07 06:13
I love this game! So many levels without having to buy additional levels, each city increases in difficulty and your own time management skills you either fail or succeed. I would have given this game 5 stars, but the only issue I have with it is that once you earn an excessive amount of money on a country, you cannot transfer that money to use for the next country. Which gives the game a bit of a challenge, because when you start off on a new country you are forced to replay levels to earn enough money to upgrade your items needed to advance to some of the more harder levels where you are timed or have to earn enough money to pass it and if your items or cookware isn’t upgraded it’s impossible to pass the level . I really hope that the developers take this issue into account or at least give the player a way to use your unearned money to buy boosts or more lives, or like a way to transfer that money to another countries currency...other than that better than any and all the cooking games that are currently on the App Store!
It’s fun but it is a money trap!
by eappletree on 2019/06/14 15:47
Let me start by saying I love,love,love this game but I can’t afford to love it much longer. It is fun and challenging and going to different cities with different foods and cooking challenges will have me playing for hours. I agree with many other reviewers who have complained about only being able to pass levels if you drop real money on boosters. I have stopped playing as much because I feel like the game is rigged to get you to pay to pass levels. I spent too much money before I realized this. I am stuck on level 78 or 9 because their is neither enough time to make 2200 dollars. I will only get to the new restaurant if I by the price doubler and I just can’t drop more money on this game! I will need to find a replacement game but it won’t be from this game company. Great game but definitely rigged to get you to dish out real money. I’ve already spent too much money, it’s like a slot machine! Other issues: 1. Coins should be able to purchase more than upgrades, like spoons and boosters. 2. Your coins from one country to the next should be able to be exchanged in the new country. You shouldn’t just lose it and start from zero.
Impossible Wins
by ai 4 jmusic on 2018/12/20 15:42
This game is so much fun and quite addictive. I loved playing diner dash back in the day so I thought this would be fun. The New York level was pretty good but the Paris level makes a lot of the issues with this game very clear. In New York, I had one instance when the game didn’t issue enough dishes to win the level. To customer support’s credit, they responded to my complaints within 24 hours and credited me with some boosters. However, the Paris level is riddled with the same issue. Most of the levels that required a certain number of likes and dishes to pass often require a boost for more time or more customers because the game didn’t provide enough from the start. I’m all for a challenge but it’s unfair to not provide just the basic number or customers or dishes. I don’t even mind paying for boosts, but I’m against making boosts a requirement to win. If that’s the case, make those levels locked/bonus levels because the main game should be winnable for everyone. When they fix that issue, I’ll be more than happy to increase my rating. For now, I’ll give the game 2 stars because of customer service’s swift response (5-star service) and gameplay (0-star for requiring boosts to win).
I use to love the game ... !!!
by Kimberliee2002 on 2017/10/07 14:25
I was addicted to this game ... I even stopped playing my usuals! I HATE the fact that you cannot rollover your coins to the different countries. I understand in the beginning of a new country, you have to earn coins to gain, but Rio is flippin ridiculous! Who knows what the others look like 🙄 Not to mention, the first purchase of merchandise is I guess ok’d price, but the secondary purchase is expensive as fudge! I know, I know you want use to spend actually money because it’s not free to make the game for our entertainment, but could you make it a little easier to pass level 11 and so forth on Rio and future countries. I really don’t understand how the heck can you be timed and expect us to meet the requirement to complete that level and he customers wants kabob WITH vegetables with it 😶 That’s when you’re forced to make a purchase because you’d want to complete that level. Who knows how the other levels look like 😶 Since the level is hard to complete, it has put a halt of me WANTING TO PLAY and I know I’m the only one 😳 If the coins were transferable, maybe people wouldn’t mind spending money to play because they’ve exhausted their coins 🤔
It’s ok
by App Reviewerrrr on 2019/01/27 03:30
I have not played this game for very long but it’s clear the makers of this app wanted money. You runout of lives quickly because you can only have 5 at a time. You can’t earn spoons very quickly either so it’s hard to use them. You can buy those things for real money in the store though, so it seems like the game is rigged for you to need to spend money. The game is fun though and addictive but in a good way. I just get annoyed when I get stuck use all my lives and have to wait for a hour so they can regenerate. I feel like you should be able to play extra shifts if your lives are out. Going back to the spoon problem they can fix that by giving you more spoons per level. The money for upgrades is way to much considering how much money you make per level. You can also get bored in this game so I suggest more food court challenges. You can go from being on top to having no coins, no spoons, no lives, & no boosts. Which happened to me in 20 minutes. It’s just annoying how little you get of those things and how quickly you use them up. I hope for the makers of this game to fix these issues in a new update soon.
A couple of things...
by quarter55 on 2019/06/12 05:02
I really do enjoy this game; I’ve been playing for about 6 months now. They’ve made some really good updates & some really bad ones along with it. I’m glad they got rid of the “touch the wrong thing & end your turn” on the bonus levels because those were absolutely stupid, but I’m mad they shortened them to 180 seconds instead of 300. That’s where I make up a lot of extra coins when I’m needing upgrades. I’ve also noticed that my game force quits when I am offline or in airplane mode, which isn’t too often, but would be frustrating for someone who constantly is. I also really personally hate the bonus levels because you’re not getting any additional coins for the food served. One upgrade that they made a few months ago and i loved was the month long, blue star challenge, but it looks like they just got rid of it for no apparent reason. Can you please bring that back?! This game has its flaws, but is also quite enjoyable if you play a little here & a little there, they just need to fix a couple more bugs!
this game was fun until it wasn’t as much
by jeanchenrn on 2020/02/10 00:54
I truly enjoy this game and it is my favorite past time! I got my husband and friend to play! The reason I only gave it 3 stars was because 1) you can’t transfer your money over! I have so much money in New York! Even if they would do an exchange rate I would be happy! I am currently in Paris and it’s taking me forever to upgrade anything because of the lack of money you get. So fix that! You developers don’t lose out! You have so many cities to still play. 2) I literally worked at an extra shift in Paris and I went from having 11 people to serve to get a certain amount of money to like 6-7 people every time I lost and needed to start over. I was forced to use a boost or extra customers. Not cool bro. Don’t manipulate your peeps. 3) Once you log into facebook you can’t get extra lives or double my coins by watching ads! Bring the ads! That’s where you make money! 4) the challenges aka the random maps get way too difficult and it ends up being more frustrating than fun. I get that you guys need to make money but keep the game fun. I’m sure you make enough money to do so.
Happy Birthday to them!!!
by Queen Staty on 2018/06/30 15:00
June 2018- I am playing the birthday challenge and it is a joke. Full of technical difficulties...can’t place fruit and candy on the cake, can I have double and triple tap to get the cake on the plate. You have to use power ups to get win the levels. Hmmm...could that be the reason why they are giving you almost two weeks to play it. Not playing it! August 27th Update: I am on the Rio section of the game. I would like to know, how am I supposed to grill vegetables and meat on the same grill at the same time when there are on three sections on the grill? I tell you...you have yo use the instant cook boost every time because every customer wants vegetables with their meet. Are the developers of this game playing the levels before they release it? I love this this game; however, it costs too much money to move past levels. I collected over $40,000 coins while in New York, but when I moved to Paris the money didn't transfer over. In order to upgrade in Paris, you HAVE TO spend money or YOU WILL NOT advance levels.
FUN game but...
by FireflyGirl2517 on 2019/01/25 06:44
EDIT: I USED to love this game. I’m about a step away from uninstalling. Any game that essentially forces you to buy boosts and never gives you the option of earning the ones you need is not a fun game. Yes, it has fantastic graphics and started out very fun and just challenging enough to keep me engaged. But then I got to a level that is impossible to beat without a money booster and I used up the ones I’d earned trying to get past one or two other price boost levels because they too were impossible without the boosts. I don’t spend money on games and there’s no way to earn spoons to buy boosters without playing new levels or getting a daily reward. Very disappointing. And like others, I think the update screwed things up a little because when I play the special challenge, it won’t sense my touch for one of the foods so I can’t play that either. And it repeatedly thinks I’m trashing things when I’m not, it’s just not sensing me right away and when it does, I’ve tapped twice. I’ll probably end up uninstalling it, which is REALLY disappointing because it’s a great game in concept and design. But don’t force people to pay to keep playing your free game. Give them other options, even ones that take longer to earn.
The New update
by Ronni1969 on 2020/09/15 03:07
I was under the impression I had unlimited lives if I upgraded the Fall Edition, but only had the standard lives. At first I really really loved this game, but it becomes impossible to pass some of the stages even with good skills, adding a cooking helper, it just can't be done even in 60s stages. In the beginning you don't realize spending coins to update is not necessary-they update as you move through stages on their own but it is a balancing act. You just can't ever completely finish without spending real money-I don't doubt it is well deserved, but I do think as many ads that I've watched and actually downloaded many of the other games advertised that maybe they should be paying or even google should pay something. For what we pay for a phone, then the monthly bill-we shouldn't be nickeled and dime at every turn. Developers are being ripped as well. Consumers of these games & developers should demand more because they've got it off all our backs! Sorry for the cynicism, it's the 'times' we live in. Graphics are perfect, I love the variety, and the developers have it fairly set if you have the funds to win. I'm still not deleting it yet.
So awful!
by Jonnieray on 2019/05/16 03:46
Omigosh. I have the sinking feeling that this is one of the games that you’re forced to download in the infernal abyss, and the fiends down there MAKE you play it. For starters, it’s a lot like a real job. A very, very cruddy job. Chef Insulin barges in and bellows directions at you: “Cook a donut!” Or “Upgrade your equipment!” etc. He never chills out; just like a real boss. Then the customers come in, and they don’t even remotely behave like real customers. I don’t know what miserable country this game is set in, but it’s surely not America (well...possibly California or Oregon). The customers don’t even have the sense to get in a line, nope; they all just randomly form up shoulder-to-shoulder and start barking out their idiotic orders—firing-squad style. And if they don’t think you’re doing good enough? Well; they just wander off like a bunch of lemmings. This game will make you want to stalk into the nearest hippie-bistro and clothesline everyone placing an order. It isn’t much better if you make them happy, either; they just JIGGLE as they chunk money at you and then they race off like the apocalypse is coming...not nearly soon enough if you’ve played this game for any duration longer than a femto-second. Ah; the dangers of placing a cafe right next to a cannibis store. Avoid!
Faulty...before and worse, after the update
by Getting frustrated 13 on 2019/12/30 12:13
Gane was fun...but, for the last couple of days is not working properly. Getting the double coins and using spoons for additional time freezes the game and just takes the spoons and the life without giving the double coins nor giving the ability to continue the game even after the spoons were taken. It used to give you the opportunity to get a life, by watching a video; now, the life is not given...the sound of the video is there, yet no life and no actual video. It is difficult as is to pass the levels, and when spoons are taken away, that makes it even more difficult. Update to include that now when the “double coins” are offered, you can never get them either as the screen goes black with just the sound of the advertisement...once the sound is gone, there’s nothing to do. The game needs to be closed and when you re-enter, there are no double coins given. Also, a keyboard doesn’t populate within the app to allow users to submit an issue. Was able to do the CAPTCHA, but, nothing else. Unable to enter any other information without the keyboard to type.
I like this game BUT...
by Lordeofchaos on 2018/08/05 22:07
The graphics are great. Responsiveness is great. The way you can go and pick up extra shifts to help make more coins I think is awesome. But there are some things that aren't ok. One thing is when you are trying to get so many likes and they only send in people who want one or two things and then I run out of customers. It prompts me to continue if I buy spoons. I don't feel like I should have to buy spoons if the game actually sent people in line. As I go through the levels I notice how that becomes more and more of an issue. It's not me getting the food out fast enough, it's the game not sending people to where I can make it close enough. Now I know there are challenges that need to be met and I get that, it's a game. What I don't get is why some levels you literally have to use boosts to get through it and I don't want to have to use my boosts up to progress. And naturally when my boosts are up the only way to continue is to buy boosts. It's frustrating. I really do like the game but when small things like that stop me from continuing it makes me not want to keep playing.
Getting frustrated
by GillianPaige on 2019/07/31 02:19
I have to agree with other long time players. First this has been my favorite game to play by far, but it is getting more and more frustrating and seems to actually becoming unfair. I am in Istanbul and for the first time I feel you can barely get through the 5th stop first tier without using additional spoons/boosts. I’ve really noticed lately that when you start playing and you get the extra 10 seconds which used to be plenty of time to get 2-5 more dishes the 2nd customer comes out very late, it seems I actually am waiting and when he does he barely shows his order when he’s walking away, almost seems like cheating and planned to make you spend more money. Second, like others have stated , we understand that level are going to become harder and more challenging, but if they’re actually built with the purpose of being impossible unless you start spending more and more money, my interest is definitely going to wain if not completely end. I hope something is done about this, if not I will be walking away also.
Fun at first
by Issy829 on 2018/10/23 16:39
It’s a fun and addicting game at first. Each kitchen gets harder like any normal game, but once you get to a point, the levels get ridiculously hard to the point it’s not enjoyable any more, like London and Munich. You really have to upgrade the entire kitchen to pass any level after 10 in any of the new kitchens. Too many things you tap that you have to get started cooking. Louisiana was too much! Ridiculous! And if you hit something twice, it’s trashed. Horrible feature! Money doesn’t roll over from one country/city to the next. The touch levels are stupid especially on the fast levels where you have to serve 72 people. You can’t win without accidentally hitting an item and you lose. Stupid feature! I have, also, served 5 dishes at a time being fully upgraded and lose the level when you only have so many customers to serve and didn’t make enough money. It forces you to use spoons or actually pay and buy boosts. This is unfair in my opinion. The game definitely needs lots of tweaks. Im almost at the point of removing the app since it’s now unenjoyable.

Wonderful game... to a point.
by MrDare on 2021/03/01 21:11
Beautifully designed. Fun. Intuitive. Little contests to keep life interesting. BUT. Like EVERY other game I have played of this genre, you just get priced out. By the time you get to Paris, you got to use upgrades OFTEN to finish levels. You get upgrades by paying money. Listen, friends... this system could be OK with you. You could be OK continually investing funds in your games. I grew up with Nintendo... I fundamentally reject our gaming culture today, so know where I am coming from. I want to pay one price, one time, and not have my games turn into a monthly expenditure on my budget sheet. Either way... have fun, and stay healthy. Developers: great job, but you drank the Kool-Aid.
Can’t play event level
by keziah21 on 2021/02/28 07:32
I enjoyed this game for a while but can’t play continually cuz it’s just shut down very often or event level. Pls fix this bug ASAP!!!
Love the game
by Kelli Shref on 2021/02/27 12:34
Love the game! I’m waiting on a new city! I haven’t been able to complete all 3 stars, so that gives me something to play. Love that there are extra things to play, food truck, food court. For everyone saying it is impossible to win without spending money...not true!! I haven’t spent any $ and I’m sitting on 4300 spoons. I would have given it a 5 if the tiers gave the correct amount of spoons. Many times on tier 2 & 3 I only get one spoon. It would also be nice to ask for lives more often. It would also be nice if we could add people that are not Facebook friends.
Needs some Rule Changes
by Buttercupmami on 2021/02/27 12:22
This is a cool game and quite enjoyable. The one thing that I would change is the money that you make in one place should transfer if you reached the end!!
Cool but..........
by TillieCupcake on 2021/02/26 23:32
ya it’s cool but... ......... you have to wait for like forever!?!? Please fix The download times. Overall this game is so cool! This is how I feel about it:😃😃😃🙂🙂🙂😃😃😃🙂🙂🙂😜😜😜😃😃😃; I like how you get to cook I love to cook 👩‍🍳 -your follower
Crashing
by Kdsmith128 on 2021/02/22 15:53
Last two days it is constantly crashing! Very frustrating
It is a good game, but has become unstable
by Pooka Nator 14 on 2021/02/22 12:32
It is an enjoyable game to play, but there are definitely levels that it won’t let you pass without using spoons (even if you use a bonus). Know that upfront and you can control your frustration level haha. I am in Amsterdam and it may take awhile to get through this country as the game crashes after one or two games. This has been going on since the ill-fated Valentine’s bonus game that did nothing but crash. I emailed them but the suggestions they gave seemed like they didn’t even try to solve it (and others had the same issue). I really wish they would try to figure out why the game has become so unstable, it’s almost unplayable 😔.
Best Game Out There!
by iYarelisx3 on 2021/02/22 05:03
I must say the graphics in this game is the best. I love how detailed every aspect of this game is. The best part? Absolutely no ADs! I hate waiting on ads & the fact that this game doesn’t have any, just makes it so much better. I like that you can earn spoons in a lot of ways & there really is no reason to have to pay money for boost when there are so many ways to earn them. Reading through other reviews, I see a lot of people talk about how some levels are way too hard & having to use boost but I mean, it’s a game, it’s meant to be hard. I don’t really see a downfall, I mean yes it’s frustrating but you can play extra shifts to earn money or spoons & use those boosts. I was definitely upset that you couldn’t transfer your money from one country to the next but it makes sense. If we could transfer money from one country to the other, than we’d be able to upgrade real fast & I feel like that would take the fun away from having to re-earn that money. Overall, this game is so amazing & I wish I could find more games like this. I would definitely recommend people to download & play.
Cooking
by megs51 on 2021/02/19 16:56
I hate the game at first It is super easy but when you get to level 31 they make you play level 29 it’s impossible I’ve tried like 23 times and still didn’t pass:(
2 ⭐️ for entertainment value (at the beginning)
by juggalettekt1422 on 2021/02/19 04:30
This game starts off fun but as soon as you get to later levels- they intentionally make it impossible to win without spending money. It was fun for awhile so they get 2 stars but I’m uninstalling. I’ve played this game a few years and it’s just getting more annoying. I’m going to play street food tycoon instead.
Update?
by tysm38 on 2021/02/19 03:05
Why does it keep saying there’s an update when there isn’t?
Adore this game!
by Genie576 on 2021/02/18 18:02
This is one of the games I play every single day. In fact I’ve finished all the levels and am hoping a new country is launched soon! I love the graphics. The developers put a lot of attention in the details. Every time I play a level I notice something new — whether it’s a character or the bubbles in a pot on a stove. It’s one of the things that makes this app stand out from other similar games. While there are in app purchases available, I appreciate that the game does allow you to collect spoons over time so you don’t have to spend money to buy the boosts if you can’t afford it. Other games force you to pay and I abandon those apps pretty quickly. Overall you will really enjoy this app!
Ok
by Pixiepoo117 on 2021/02/17 15:39
Love the game when I’m able to play, sometimes it takes months before they get a new level.So annoying!!
Love Cooking Craze
by Tutibaker on 2021/02/17 06:07
I absolutely LOVE this game, however, I’m not so happy about one of the changes. There used to be several different chances to gain free lives but, for some reason, that has changed. Not sure why but I don’t like it. It gives me less opportunity to play the game...
Best Cooking Game ever
by cookie monster133 on 2021/02/15 23:28
it will keep u entertained
Overcharged multiple times
by bigfanofthispodcast on 2021/02/15 16:12
Unfortunately while I love this game, I cannot recommend it to others. Two times when I tried to purchase spoons which were marked $9.99, I was charged between $40 and $45 to my bank account. This is fraud and I can’t recommend that others play this game if it steals from you. I made a support ticket so we will see what happens
Many levels are impossible to win without “extras “
by Karma's Mama on 2021/02/14 16:30
This is a very challenging game, the graphics are great, but for the most part it is practically impossible to progress unless you either buy the spoons, or if you’re lucky enough to win enough to use for a boost, then you can progress. Perfect example is I just used 35 spoons that were almost impossible to “win “for an extra 35 secondsAnd the time jumped so i did not win. If you look on Facebook thousands of people are saying the same types of things, they just don’t post them here. They really should say that this game requires money to complete. They do not set the level so that they are in any way shape or form able to be one just on your own. That’s like playing a game outside and having to get four of your neighbors to sub for you because you’re not good enough. What is the point of that? Ridiculous
Great
by vvnnivyg% on 2021/02/14 03:43
Way to help pass the time during quarantine!
Too many glitches
by Kokd on 2021/02/13 23:57
The app just shuts off on its own while I’m playing and every bonus game just glitches out. Can’t play a single bonus game
Used to be great, but crashes constantly now
by KT3294 on 2021/02/13 20:45
I really liked this game when it first came out. But it seems like every time it gets an update it runs worse. After the latest update I can only play one level before the game crashes and restarts. I’ve tried everything suggested in the help article (closed all other apps, uninstalled and reinstalled the game, etc.) but it still constantly crashes. I’ve emailed support but never got a response.
The Best Cooking Game
by nickname really WF on 2021/02/13 17:19
I love this game it is so much fun. The game doesn't glitch and it’s very challenging! It go will definitely have you up all night playing!!
Definitely cheats so you’ll have to spend money.
by Livyyymarie11 on 2021/02/13 16:28
This game is fun and all, but the developers definitely made it to where you’ll HAVE to purchase extra spoons to complete a level. Customers will stop coming while the time is still going before you complete the goal and that’s so vile,lol. Also the game is really laggy and slow when they update.
More diversity
by Urban Temple on 2021/02/13 15:11
Love the game, but can we add more African countries and Caribbean islands to the mix.... Jamaica, Haiti, DR, Congo, Senegal, Nigeria, Somalia. There are so much diverse foods in East of these countries that would be great for this game
Really fun
by ddddddddddddd1 on 2021/02/13 10:06
I think cooking craze is really fun. The only thing I don’t like about it is that you have to repeat hard levels that took forever to figure out to get tickets 🎫. I think the first time you pass the level you should not have to pass it again.
Love this game!
by Upsydayz on 2021/02/13 02:03
Love this game. Only wish is that new levels came out faster and that there were more tournaments.
Heartbroken
by Tired Mom PA on 2021/02/13 00:51
I have loved this game since the beginning. I think it’s been 5 years. I have taken note of the many changes since then. Used to be able to keep unlimited cupcakes and get more every 4 hours-now it’s 12. Some levels impossible to win even with boosts, but I was able to educate myself on how to keep using those boosts to a minimum. I would wait and see what I would get with the daily gift. I do not like being “forced to participate in tournaments . I had taken to just waiting until they were over before playing again. There are some extra events to help you get more prizes, nut I ended up using more spoons. I started skipping these events as well. But the straw that broke this camel’s back was having the amount of spoons earned on each level. There are 3 levels within in level. The first time you play a particular level (1 star) you would get 1 spoon; on the 2nd level/star you would get 2 and the 3rd-you would get 3: total of 6. For 10 levels you would get 60. Was nice, but recently I noticed that I was only getting 1 for each level. Couldn’t believe it. I even sent a support message -no response after 4 days. This is hands down the best game I have ever played and it just really upsets me- all the changes the developers have made. Does anyone think about the customers any more? I have spent plenty of money on this game and don’t mind-I have just paced myself. I know the realities of game play. But this last change just about killed my love of this game-poof!-I deleted the game. May download it again in the future, but not anytime soon. Bummer!😩
Update
by deemarrie64 on 2021/02/12 23:58
I recently installed the update , however now the game will not open. I don not want to delete it because I will lose my progress since I didn’t connect it to anything. I love the game please help
Crashing
by tj_226t on 2021/02/11 18:32
Since the new update, the entire game is crashing as soon as opening it.
Infinite lives glitch!
by Raladyy on 2021/02/11 03:36
I love this game BUT LATELY after the update I haven’t been getting my full amount of infinite life! Literally just won a 30 minute infinite life from the delivery boxes, played one level and lost and the infinite time just disappeared and I lost a life! PLEASE FIX IT ASAP!!!!!!!
Very fun
by YanniLSR on 2021/02/10 13:34
I must say this is a very fun game. Very addictive. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star is that I feel when you use your boosters and pass a board you should still be able to use the same picks.
Grate game
by reversal.fn on 2021/02/10 04:10
Grate ya e
Not able to click on an order
by hskfoen on 2021/02/10 02:50
Ughh it just started after this last update! Super sad cause I play this game everyday guess it’s time to delete
Spoon Issue
by VN1254 on 2021/02/10 00:45
Ever since my last update, my spoons keep periodically disappearing without me spending them on any extras. Somehow I went from about 120 to 16 and have no idea how this happened. It is so hard to earn those and they are needed for so many of your levels because you make them so difficult that this is extremely frustrating and disappointing.
Keeps shutting off after update
by hbaker3942 on 2021/02/09 23:32

by WendyTR on 2021/02/09 15:10
Please fix the issue where the pan de muerto is unable to be served, even with the waiter boost activated! It does not move to the customer no matter how many times you tap on it.l

Remains my favorite
by Flower mom on 2021/02/09 05:53
Many games come and go. I have favorite games that I constantly play - but eventually I get bored as it’s the same thing over and over. This game remains my favorite because it’s constantly changing as every country I visit has different foods to prepare. This keeps the game challenging and I have yet to get bored. ❤️
Amazing game!!!
by ermaleche on 2021/02/09 02:58
I loooove this game. I never write reviews but this game is too good to not give praise to. I’ve had this game for years and it has consistently been a favorite. It never gets boring because of the many side games and the different countries you can play in. I also love that spoons can actually be earned in a way that makes sense so you aren’t forced to buy spoons. Most games make it almost impossible to win unless you pay some money but I’ve never felt that with this one. It has hard levels that can be challenging but they aren’t impossible and that makes it very fun. I’ve made it all the way to Mexico City and have never had to pay a penny. It also doesn’t have a ridiculous amount of annoying ads. Definitely a 5 star game that I would totally recommend!!
It’s great BUT
by Trum123 on 2021/02/08 23:04
I just wish you could carry your winnings to every new level. It’s pretty unfair that all the coins you earn you can’t take with you.
Expensive
by sindi018 on 2021/02/08 23:00
Do not download this game. I already spent more than $200 just to continue playing.
Lately
by ne504ne on 2021/02/08 22:42
Absolutely love this game,but in the last 2-3 weeks I’ve been making purchases an winning levels an not receiving my spoons. Hopefully this will be fixed soon. Other than that. I love it
I’m confused
by DeLaBritt on 2021/02/08 02:11
As I play the game every so often it ask me to update it but when I come to the store it’s no update available and when I try to get free spoons and I click watch video it does nothing please fix this bug
STILL won’t work
by pretty in pink : ) on 2021/02/07 16:47
This is a great game but I cannot sign in and play it just gives me an error message. No one has responded with any useful information at all. How can you just ignore something like this?!?
Fun for a bit, then way too hard
by OMGWTF144 on 2021/02/06 20:59
I play lots of games and I appreciate a challenge, but I am of the opinion that this game creates obstacles that are not able to be overcome without the purchase of assisting items for real world money. After about 4 levels, it get so hard that it doesn’t seem possible to proceed without spending money.
Don’t bother
by KJB865 on 2021/02/05 19:38
This game is fun to play and it is a great multitasking game but it will ANNOY the crap out of you to log into FB and when you do you loose ALL the things you have ‘bought’ and won in the game and it takes everything away from you.
Killing me!
by 10rlsmo31 on 2021/02/03 21:22
Y’all are KILLING ME not getting new cities out! It’s been WEEKS. You’re going to lose players if you can’t keep up!
Great Game!
by Nice102505 on 2021/02/03 19:46
Very fun game LOVE the Challenges & Rewards! However, players should be able to pause their “Free Time”. Once I had 3 hours of free time and had to let 2 hours go because I had other things to attend to. Pausing free time will allow players to utilize the time well.
Game is expensive
by emilystyles171294 on 2021/02/03 17:13
I love this game however I think I’m going to have to move on. It has cost me so much money and now that I’m in Tokyo they don’t even send you enough customers to be able to win so you are forced to pay with 35 spoons just to get 3 more customers and then that’s not even enough! And like other people have complained about - when you move to another city you don’t get to take your points with you. Those are hard earned points! I wish I could continue to play because it is a fun game but my wallet is empty.
Enjoy Game But.......
by BMB007 on 2021/02/02 22:47
Game is not calculating beverages served right now, not the first time this has happened in competition. Also levels are getting way to hard to complete. Love a challenge but, some are just way to hard. Last thing, not everyone is on Facebook nor wants to be. Should not be in daily tasks!!!!, never received my bonus 2-2-2021 for logging in all day , showed up but no bonus, what gives with you guys, also again not not everyone is on Facebook, quit making it a task, I have spent so much money on your game, be fair
Game loading
by meer rostam kakazall on 2021/02/02 20:10
My game is only loading and isnt entering why and i deleted and downloaded again isnt fixed i need your help
Coins
by Jamaikaluv on 2021/02/02 17:29
I love the game but why the money don’t transfer .. it just money sitting each level can y’all please make those funds available to buy things such spoons r the extras instead of just the spoons
Pay to play
by Missingdice on 2021/02/02 01:03
When you go back to max out all the levels it will have to serve 37 customers but only give you 35 customers meaning no matter how well you play the round your forced to use extra customer bonuses to even win.
My review
by Anynemous1 on 2021/02/01 22:58
Good game but the downside of it is it depends on lives and you can’t take your coins with you from one city to another, also the events are very hard because the customers don’t wait as you go up in levels.
Fun game; too many bugs
by Daniel Rules the World on 2021/01/31 23:32
Was great until I got to Tokyo. Now it crashes constantly. Sometimes I can’t even get a single level to load. Sent an email and got back a form letter saying too many complaints to respond to individually?! Hoping they work the bugs out soon. Very frustrating!
Used to Have Help
by sbbmoon on 2021/01/31 21:45
I’ve been playing this game for years. In the past, anytime there was a glitch I contacted support and they got back to me promptly and with an answer. For the last year, support sends out a robot answer with no help. The game crashes more than it stays up. Trying to play just one game is horrible because it takes me 4-5 times to reboot. Don’t waste your time
New levels
by kkstks on 2021/01/31 19:29
Need new levels I made it to the last level. Gotta make more then one level at a time cause it’s takes for forever for a new level to come out.

When will there be new levels added
Update!
by nicknamebs! on 2021/01/29 15:46
Hi. I love this game but the “updating” seems to be going slow lately. I’ve played all cities, all levels but now the “coming soon” messege for a new city lately it doesn’t update for a couple of months now. It wasn’t always this slow. Thanks 🤦‍♀️
Disappearing spoons
by regretfearconfusion on 2021/01/29 08:41
Tired of my spoons disappearing, so I’m done with this game, even though it was hella fun to play
Help
by spazgirl28 on 2021/01/29 01:05
Can you please make new levels?
I love Cooking Craze!

That’s a good game for Cooking Craze because I love it! This was great! Good luck with this. Have a great night! Bye.

This game is fun to play but some levels are impossible to do.
Crashing
by Fefe_J on 2021/01/27 14:28
I can’t even play the game without it crashing like cutting off every time I open the app I even checked the connection and restart my device and it’s still cutting off
Impossible to pass now
by Titio4444 on 2021/01/26 15:54
I’m at level 76 (like most) Cape Town and still cannot pass it. But realize I will never pass it bc it’s actually impossible to pass if you have no boosts at higher levels. Have never bought any coins or upgrades so I think that’s why they’re making it impossible for me to pass it bc realizing they want me to buy boosts now! Ridiculous bc I’ve been playing this game for a long time and loving it. Hate the game now when it’s sneaky tactics to get you to buy boosts etc.
Favorite games of all

Good Game but really difficult
by Pew Pew Master6294 on 2021/01/24 05:56
Maybe I’m just bad at this game but every time there’s a timed level, you have to upgrade which can get very annoying. Other than that it’s a pretty fun game, just maybe increase the
It's a love hate relationship
by sassy neshh on 2021/01/24 00:16
I love this game but I don't like that you earn so many coins and sometimes don't spend them all and you can't take them to a new city not when a portion. I don't think that fair at all. I also hate when somethings are just unclickeable on levels no matter what you do. Definitely needs to be some changes an or updates
The best app

Cooking craze
by Rosanne723 on 2021/01/22 02:47
I love this game but wish if I find an area too hard, that I can still move to other cites. Right now I’m at a stalemate! Can’t move forward due to the part I’m at is just too hard to complete. Too many ingredients to each dish and not enough time to complete. I used all my “spoons” to buy boosts and spent real money too and nothing helped get over this hard patch. Won’t do that again!! No game is worth using my hard earned money on, especially at times like this and ALL I HAVE ARE GAMES AND TV. No income at all right now! So with nothing else to do I wish my favorite game would allow me to open new cities without having to complete the current one! That’s why I gave a 2-star rating!! So my favorite game may become my worst game if I can’t move forward!
Does not work anymore
by csntsee60 on 2021/01/22 02:02
Since upgrading the food given to customer is not being served I keep clicking but it won’t go to customer , it disappears from the dishes but does not get to customer
Fun game
by larotayo123 on 2021/01/22 01:25
The game is fun, but there are some levels that are so impossible to achieve without using boosters!
App keeps crashing.
by Furby gal on 2021/01/22 00:19
Love this game. Since most recent upgrade- it crashes so bad I can’t even get app to stay open to email a ticket regarding the issue. Please help. Still awaiting new Restaraunt also!
Annoying
by Herculicious on 2021/01/21 21:04
I used to REALLY enjoy this game until the introduction of the combo levels. The game was totally fine before and the combo levels are complete TRASH. I didn’t play for months because of this and now every time I hit I combo level I turn the game off for a long time. You always have to purchase SOMETHING to get through the combo levels. I begging you the developer to delete these horrid levels so we can go back to enjoying whipping in the kitchen.
Been playing for years!
by 20155 on 2021/01/21 16:56
Ive had this game for so long and I’ll continue to play. The details are great and the new cities keep it new and interesting. Some levels are tougher than others, but I love the challenge. I’ve never had to pay for spoons because I’ve gotten so many from easier levels.
Great game, but...
by RunnerMomx3 on 2021/01/21 04:39
I really do not like the new “Combo” levels. It drives me nuts that the only way to get past them is by utilizing a boost.
Great game but, some issues
by Dragons Rule😎 on 2021/01/21 00:27
I really love cooking craze, I would spend hours everyday day working on levels. I have had this game for years and I loved the settings and back grounds but, they had to change it to the more animated version. I will always continue to play the game but I would appreciate it if the screen went back to normal. Other than that, great game guys!!😜
Absolutely love
by Riy&Zoi'sMommy on 2021/01/20 22:08
I absolutely love this game! Although I gave 5 stars, I just wish it didn’t cost so many spoons to buy the boost we need for the different levels! You have to play for forever to reach 50!
It’s great!
by Lizzie~Puffs on 2021/01/20 06:08
I think that this app is very entertaining and it’s great for car trips or just for when your bored, but be warned it gets more and more difficult. Speaking of witch when trying to get a new restaurant or more levels than it’s hard because of the increase of difficulty, one time it took me a whole day - at least when I had time - to get to then next levels when I need to get tickets. But overall it’s a GREAT game 😁
LOVE
by Kpm31 on 2021/01/20 04:06
I love this game!! It’s fun and addictive. I love the boosts and details. I like that it’s hard but with practice and sometimes luck you can eventually beat the hard levels without having to pay to play. My one and only complaint is that I wish the developers could drop new cities more often. Or give each city more than 3 restaurants. I’ve beat all the levels and anxiously awaiting more. Good job big fish. I’m hooked.
So Much Fun! 😀

by Veronycah on 2021/01/19 22:44
It’s pretty much just amazing! Most games I end up deleting because you have to fork over money when in this game it gives you the opportunity to accumulate more coins with “extra shifts”. The only downfall to it is you only get a certain amount of lives. Ones those are used you have to wait a certain time period to get more. I wish it were unlimited lives. Kind of need them for the harder levels. Other than that it’s hands down the best game I’ve downloaded! Please do not ever get rid of this game!
My favorite cell phone game!
by Lisa40278 on 2021/01/19 21:47
This game is the perfect cooking game. It is the only cooking game that isn’t pay to win. Your Facebook friends can send you extra time and customers that would otherwise cost you money. You can gladly have my Facebook data to save me a few bucks on hard levels (haha).

I like if but I also get very mad all the time at weird things so like when I lose this game or when I can’t get something on it or just being on a time limit for doing something to ow and also I’m just saying I have to be doing a lot of things at once so just sitting down and play this makes it fun because this game has all thing people that you have to all get food at once so for me it’s a ✔️ and a ❌
Game glitches
by mandasaurus123 on 2021/01/16 22:19
Anybody else having trouble with levels in the later cities. When I’m playing It won’t allow me to select certain items for the entirety of the level and then I have to start the game over
Mixed Feelings
by Tayislit on 2021/01/16 14:18
Overall this is a great game! I like the challenges and tournaments! You can replay levels and more! You learn what each coutries cuisine (IDK if I used the right word) is! People may not even realize, but you if really pay attention, you can learn a lot from this game! I have played this game for about a year now, and have never felt the need to write a review! Until now, that is... So, you know how you can do those “daily tasks” right? Yeah, so, some of them aren’t even possible! Like some of them say 60 likes from your costumers! First off, most challenges don’t even asks for likes, and I know you can go back levels and coutries looking for those purple levels. But it’s very limited and hard to find those levels! Specially for you are only on New York or something! Please fix that! Some levels are IMPOSSIBLE and you are kinda FORCED to buy bonuses! Like, the heck!? I had this one level, and (I’m not even lying) I tried 20 something times, and didn’t pass it! I had to save up for spoons for a week or so to buy a burn proofer thingy! Like, you should be able to get pass EVERY level without having to try 20 something times! You also lose your rank the tournament levels if you don’t win something! I was in sous chef level, and was knocked down to Prep cook! The heck!?
Good but bad
by Cr&se on 2021/01/16 05:34
I love this game but it is very frustrating and it makes me want to throw my phone 😡🤬
So Fun!
by Stepnflee on 2019/06/21 01:49
I gotta say, this is my absolute favorite game I’ve ever downloaded on the App Store. It’s super fun and addictive. I appreciate all the details they put into every country and the different ways to cook the foods and the ability to earn boosts / spoons in a way that I think is fair. Other games I’ve played pretty much force a player to pay but I’ve never really felt that with this game. You just have to be patient and keep plugging away at the levels or the weekly challenges to earn those extra boosts. Personally I’ve never had too many issues with it, sometimes it does freeze but very rarely for me and it’s usually if I lost a level. It does glitch out on occasion where if I use a boost and then lose, the next time I try that level or any other level I’ve lost, my boost will reactivate. Sooo I guess I’m not really complaining about that glitch as much lol. I will say that the levels where you have to make a certain amount of money can be a little annoying / frustrating but I usually wait until I either have infinite lives so I can keep trying to beat that level or play extra shifts to earn enough money to upgrade my stuff so that I can earn more money. I think the thing I appreciate the most about this game are the weekly challenges, they are so fun and keep the game interesting for me, especially since I’m still only in Rome at the moment. So thank you to the creators for making such a fun game and continually adding updates!
Stole 300 spoons from me
by Sakermelis on 2020/07/27 14:35
I am updating my review because I have run into another problem. I am in Spain, on the last restaurant, and every time I go to add lemons to the paella or serve a drink, it won’t work. It is extremely frustrating. It makes me lose levels I would otherwise easily win. This is not acceptable. It is not my device. My iPad works on every other level and food item. Please fix this or I won’t be able to play anymore. Ever since I have gotten a surplus of spoons the game has done everything it can to make me spend them. Trying to trick people in to spending their hard earned spoons is despicable. The game does not do these tricks when you are low on spoons. Only when you have an abundance. There was a pop up telling me that I had an upgrade for a kitchen product and I had no choice but to accept. Stealing 300 of my spoons. You also don’t have the option of watching an ad to gain a new life if you have spoons. Why should I be punished for earning spoons or in this case actually purchasing them? When you are trying to trick me I don’t feel inclined to spend more money on spoons. Quite the opposite actually. I will never spend another dime on this game. Had I actually gone through my spoons on my own and felt like I was still in control , I might consider contributing to your game, because I am getting entertainment out of it. But I have no desire to be tricked out of my hard earned money.
Multi Taskers Heaven
by Alana360 on 2020/12/29 15:07
I don’t appreciate that I have to put in a lot of personal information just to contact support. Why do you need to know my birth year and full name and email just so I can tell you that I can’t click on an object—again—and I’m losing games because of it? This continues to happen in various cities; certain objects become impossible to click on no matter how many times you try, whether you click directly on or all around it, and this is a very fast paced game Ive been playing for a year and a half. On the slow levels there is no difficulty clicking on these items, yet when it’s a faster level with more challenge suddenly the third waffle maker in Amsterdam simply won’t register my touch, or the three sausages crammed together in Germany won’t let me select the correct one. EXTREMELY ANNOYING. DEVELOPERS THIS IS YOU. AND YOU DONT NEED ALL MY PERSONAL INFO FOR THAT. However, other reviewers hit the nails on the head with beautiful graphics and fun levels. Yes sometimes it’s hard to beat a level and gets super annoying but I keep playing because this game feeds a need in my brain to do a million things at once quickly and come out on top. No you don’t have to spend money to do it, just be persistent and play the “free” levels to upgrade your items and keep at it. Lots of good dining out ideas; I’ve found a ton of new restaurants and tried a lot of new foods thanks to this game.
Challenging and fun!
by Rawrrritskarrr on 2020/10/07 23:46
I love this game. It’s got a ton of levels and individual events as well. It seems very well made. You don’t have to watch ads unless you want extras in the game, which is really nice. A lot of games make you watch an ad in between each round/level, which gets annoying. It is very difficult at points, which I appreciate, because that’s hard to find in free mobile games. But it is possible to pass really hard levels if you use strategy and do the 3 bonus tasks every day. It seems like some levels are a little harder than they need to be, though. I feel like some are literally impossible without a lot of boosts, mainly because you have to serve a certain amount of customers in a period of time that seems too short. But like I said, with enough patience and strategy, I’ve been able to pass ones I’ve thought were impossible. The only issue I’ve had with the game is the fact that over the past several days, no matter what I do, whenever I open the map, I get the leaderboard result of an event that ended like a week ago, and is no longer relevant. I can’t get it to stop popping up, but I am able to close it. That’s a really small gripe though, something I’m sure will get sorted out in the next update. I’m a little confused as to why Pac-Man is in the icon now, but I guess I’ll find out eventually? Haha.
Good game in the beginning
by Sev Bear on 2018/04/04 15:05
I’ll start by saying this is a good game overall. I’m impressed with the responsiveness, graphics, and overall fun it has been to play this game. I also enjoy the ability to earn spoons as you progress on new levels. Again I enjoy playing and the game is one of my most played when I need to unwind. My issue is with the difficulty as you progress to the higher levels. I understand a certain amount of challenge in the group of 40 for each restaurant, but when I can’t complete a level because the game doesn’t factor enough people within the time limit or I don’t make enough money as the goal because customers only ask for one item for all 4 on the screen, this is when I have to say enough is enough. In the levels for Athens and beyond, I see this more and more (Mexico City, Tokyo, Shanghai, Moscow). I can only progress when I use my boosts that I’ve been trying to save for later cities, but I have to use 2-3 at a time to make it through then the next level is the exact same goal with 5 seconds less than you had previously. Please fix this. I really do enjoy playing this game, but it might just end up being another app that I get frustrated with and delete because it’s too difficult. Thanks for reading this and I hope to see a fix in an update soon.
We all love this game!! BUT.........
by Jessylee717 on 2018/02/09 18:50
Adding to my review!! So I’m in Paris level 21... there is no way of passing this level without putting money it to it only because they don’t give you enough costumers which is a bad big turn off for me!! That right there might just make me stop playing the game!! It’s unfair and upsetting!!! I too love this game, it’s a lot of fun and the challenge is great but unfortunately very unfair. I started reading everyone’s reviews and I have to agree with every single review!! I do have one other thing that’s annoying that I didn’t see much complaining about. When I lose instead of going back to map it gets stuck, not frozen because I’m still able to cook, but it won’t bring me back to the map so I have to get off the game close it out completely and then start again, it’s happened to be a couple of times but last night it happen when I was playing a bonus round I made about 1,000 bucks but since it got stuck and I had to get off I lost the money I made. It’s it upsetting. I did write to them I’m not sure if they will get back to me hopefully they will. It’s sad because I really do like to play but if they don’t take what everyone is saying into consideration then I’m going to have to stop playing as well. It’s not worth getting frustrated!! I could just go play one of the other millions of game out there. So please I hope you guys look at we are all writing and do the right thing!! Thank you!!
Best Cooking Game Available
by island_boy2000 on 2020/05/09 16:54
Nearly a year ago now, I discovered this amazing time management cooking game. There is no doubt, this is the best one out there on the App Store — nothing even comes close in my opinion. Currently cooking my way through Jerusalem and enjoying every moment I play! The colorful and detailed graphics, characters and even city maps are created by the app designers with great attention to detail. In my opinion, they also balance making the game challenging but not overly frustrating. For me it is been a great escape from the stress of everyday life. My only suggestion for improvement is adding cities more frequently. Having played the game for a while now, I have noticed cities are added around every 2-3 months now rather than on a monthly basis. Really enjoying this game but quickly running out of cities, even after trying to ‘ration’ the remaining levels by dragging them out. I know a lot goes into designing these amazing cities but it would be amazing if they could be added just a little more quickly! Nonetheless, I really love this game and it is definitely one of the best games out there, period.
Fun Concept, sketchy Execution
by mrkcook on 2017/11/15 13:28
So I love this game, the design is fun and its overall a great game, but I have some big issues with it that WILL stop me from playing. My 1st issue is that when you travel to a new country, none of your money is taken with you, which makes the money you made previously unimportant, especially if you got all the upgrades. For example, when I left New York to go to Paris, I had over 80k coins, and now in Paris I have to start fresh. Normally I wouldnt mind, but the paris levels are incredibly unforgiving and without much pay off. By level 10 you need already a lot of upgrades so you constantly have to replay the same mundane levels. So, it would be nice if there was some form of currency conversion. Like I could use my 80k to get, say 20k of the paris coins. Something like that. Now, my next point, and possibly my biggest issue with the game isn’t difficultly but rather, impossibility. In many of the Paris levels (and some of the NY levels), when your goal is to get “likes” they dont give you enough customers to achieve that goal. Say you need 12 likes, they will only give you 11 customers so you HAVE to use a power boost of +3 customers which is ridiculous. This isnt a matter of, “oh I didnt perform fast enough” because it often isnt timed and you just dont get enough customers. Its a ridiculous money scam, and poor game development that needs to be fixed.
Stuck
by Blissful Eyes on 2017/12/18 18:51
I really like this game. I would say that it’s one of my favorites because it is the great mixture of challenging and quick paced. I have a few issues and that’s what caused me to knock off two stars for what should be a five star review. As I said, it’s fun and I could play for hours and I have before. But my problem is 1) when going to a new world, you lose all your coins from the previous world. Because it’s also supposed to be harder levels it’s harder to upgrade and advance to new levels. That for me isn’t too big of a deal but it’s definitely not my favorite thing. I’m not saying I should keep all my coins but I shouldn’t have to leave them all behind, especially since I had about 90k when I left NY. 2) But my biggest issue is that I’m stuck on this level and I’ve upgraded all the things available to me to the highest level possible and I’m losing the level by 40 or 50 coins. I might be able to win if I had a boost but I don’t have enough spoons to buy one. If you’re going to have a level, make it possible for someone to win without any boosts, especially if that person upgraded everything in the “restaurant” to the highest level. EDIT: I got past the level I had trouble with but now I’m having trouble 2 different levels in Paris. I can’t seem to get enough customers in the 60 seconds. Like I’m 5 away from winning the level. I’ve used free boosts given to me like insta cook do it’s not me. It’s the game. The game won’t let me win the game. I’ve given up.
Stop being greedy
by Pita4ever on 2019/05/27 03:38
I think this is one of the best designed cooking games and it used to be my favorite. I would have given a 5 star review, however The last few updates have caused levels to be impossible to pass unless you drop real money on boosts. Which I will sometimes but not again. Since the last update when you replay a level that you used a boost on it automatically steals your boosts. Example used the coin double boost passed the level went to the next. Did NOT use a boost, replayed the level and it forced me to use my double coin boost on a level I just need to serve customers. The challenges are almost impossible unless you use boosts which is not fair. I stopped playing them because once you get to a certain point they do not give you enough time on the clock, enough customers etc. example... had 20 sec left on the clock and only one customer came out. Any other time they are back to back. Stop being greedy. If you keep making us pay to pass levels we will just stop playing. I have been stuck on one level in New Orleans for 3 days because I refuse to drop another dime on this game. It would be nice to use our coins earned in the game for boosts and not just upgrades..the coins earned once all upgrades are purchased are useless. Allow them to carry over or be used to purchase boosts.
Fun for a while
by Mfaith1983 on 2018/03/11 01:40
UPDATE to point out major flaw. Game forces you to waste 35 spoons when you choose to pay for 3 more customers or 30 more seconds but you already have something cooking. When it restarts you, your customers are gone meaning you automatically burn whatever you were making when you “lost.” So sick of using spoons for no reason. Needs to be fixed. It’s a fun game for a while. Until you leave NY and none of your money comes with you. Even then, you can survive for a while if you are willing to play the extra shifts over and over for hours to buy the necessary upgrades to pass the levels. Even then, there are extra shifts that you will pass the first time you play and then suddenly not be able to beat the second time even though everything is exactly the same. If you aren’t willing to spend money to continue playing, I’d suggest not getting hooked on this game. I’m not exaggerating when I say it takes HOURS to build up enough coins to buy upgrades. I will admit the developers are genius at getting players to spend money. I still refuse to pay, so I will probably delete it now that I’ve been trying to get past the same spot for weeks. If you’re making a time management game, make it that. Allow players to be rewarded sufficiently when they are technically beating the levels to continue playing. If you want to make a paid game, charge me to download it.
I USED TO Love this game - an update review
by kckranzzz on 2018/04/29 21:56
My previous review is below for all to read but I would like to update this review to include the updated in the game. The updates have pretty much ruined the game for me. I’ve been playing for jeez like, almost a year now I think? No less than 9 months without a doubt and prior to the update it was perfect. Some levels are challenging but not IMPOSSIBLE if you really try your best. Finishing up Dublin because there are no more locations to travel to at the moment and some of those levels are literally impossible without a paid upgrade and then some. It has become so frustrating I find myself closing the game to play others even when I have lives left. Something I would not previously do. If you want to alienate your previous fan base, this is how you do it. You don’t gain ANY money if you lose a level, it’s impossible to beat a level just doing your best without upgrades. It’s quite frustrating. I’ve thought of uninstalling however I do love this game. Please give us new locations! I have passed all locations and waiting for the next! Also I agree, the trash should not be double tap. It makes no sense and is the only non-user friendly part of this game. Some levels were hard, yes but I cannot wait until the new destinations!
Fun to start but.........
by Q8ee21 on 2020/01/20 19:53
I wrote a review the first time I played and was disappointed at how much money you have to spend. This was a BIG complaint by many ppl so I quit playing for a while. I gave it some time and tried again and did better. Either the creators listened to their customer base or I got better :) I worked the system, spent a bit of money and really loved it. But I have to say it’s gotten a bit ridiculous. I’m on the Greece level and I defy the makers of this game to play the last restaurant’s levels without a ton of boosts. I’m pretty good and fast and I’m telling ya EVERY level on that restaurant needed a boost or even several to get the ticket. Totally stuck without them. No way to make money to upgrade no way to go back to do it. That really sucked. I kept playing to see if it was just a few hard levels, because yeah there are a few, but seriously it was nuts. I’m gonna try the next country, to see if it was just this one. They could really help things along if they allowed money to transfer to other countries. Then you could tackle the harder levels if you got stuck. Might take some time but you could do it. Even if it wasn’t an exact exchange the money on past levels wouldn’t be wasted. If the next country is this bad they’ve lost me as a fan.
Wonderful time management game except....

Except there are still bugs and fixes that need to worked on. 1. For example I can double tap on some of the “correct” food items to serve the customers and it won’t serve them. Better yet that food goes straight into the trash, which has cost me to fail many levels, especially the bonus restaurant level which is my favorite part of this entire game. I wish the bonus restaurants didn’t take so long to unlock, 4 hrs. This happens allll the time and frustrates me so much, because of this I’ve lost several times. I have to tap food over and over again. But sometimes I think they designed it that way for you to lose levels. 2. Also, after I’ve been fully upgraded and you have to pass the levels based on dollars, some levels you just can’t pass until you purchase like two and sometimes three boosters. That’s insane. 3. Also, they added a limit to the cupcakes that were very useful. 4. After reading a lot of reviews we are all pretty saying the same thing. I’m very new to this game, level 97 New York but I don’t have a desire to progress, I’m going to just keep playing the bonus restaurant that unlocks every 4 hrs, which at first before a few days ago every 3 hrs.
Done now
by Mikmoo007 on 2017/11/09 02:27
Edit: i now have to be done with the game. They have a ridiculous policy where you must update to play and i keep getting so close to finishing all the levels only to be required to update to keep playing and new levels added. I find this unbelievably aggravating and will not give a single dollar to support this game again. Even worse, their updates take a ridiculous amount of time to install, have to be done in several stages , and then you have to update EVERY SINGLE RESTAURANT when you have to play old content. Yes, one at a time. This is the most ridiculous update system i have ever come across. I have to say- THIS GAME IS AMAZING!!! This is how games should be designed. I came to here from Cooking Fever because of the awful way they have their gem system set up. I have been a fanatical player since- about two weeks now. At first, I didn't like how it was different: it seemed just a bit too easy. But there are challenges and it gets better as you progress and best of all: you can play and actually earn their premium currency. They have a great support team that was so friendly and extremely helpful the first time I hit a roadblock in my play and it was just an amazing time. I will be staying with this game and buying from them for a LONG time.
Addictive up to a point
by Daisypond on 2017/09/06 21:46
I became immediately addicted to this game, I like the fast paced challenge it offers. However, it does have some things I feel need to be fixed such as cooking something for a customer and then someone else walks up and it gives your meal to that person instead, sometimes forcing you to lose the level (repeatedly). Also, the fact that you can't carry over the coins that you've earned from playing is unfair and should be fixed. My biggest gripe is with the Rio level. Most of this level includes you having to cook rice as a sometimes side dish. The problem is that you can't just cook three servings of rice and have it sitting there waiting to serve when needed like with sides in all the other levels...in Rio you have to cook individually portions one by one and only as needed which is impossible to anticipate. Instead, a "person" walks up, wants his beans with rice so only then is when you can start cooking it and time is already ticking down. On top of this, since you can't place the rice where you want it, it ends up wasting dinners, often causing you to lose the entire level. I'm seriously considering giving up the entire game due to the Rio level. It's truly frustrating and since it's only a game, not worth the aggravation (or the money!)
PLEASE LISTEN TO ALL OF THESE REVIEWS
by Vita32813 on 2018/06/08 08:25
Like many of you have said I too agree with all the reviews I’ve read!! The currency switch up for me was the most shocking. I swore my money would roll over, in fact I re-did multiple extra levels just to build up my bank to take to Paris. I expected the prices to go up as I went further as the upgrades were costing THOUSANDS, which I found UNFAIR. When I got to Paris I noticed that even in the beginning levels they wanted 6500 when the levels only paid out 320 coins, if that! TOTALLY UNFAIR. Please make the upgrades affordable! Also I can’t stand when I only have 15-20 minutes to play and I activate an unlimited lives and it’s wasted because I put the phone down. It should be like the boosters and just add up to be used when I really need them. We should get more spoons than just one at a time, especially since they are used to subsidize coins for upgrades. I noticed that in Paris there are 31 or however many levels( haven’t gotten further yet) until the restaurant changes. In NY after 10 levels you moved off of donuts onto hamburgers and hotdogs then onto eggs and pancakes etc.., but Paris you’re playing the sameee croissants and custard for 30+ levels smh we need some consistency. I HAVE ALMOST DELETED THIS GAME THAT I LOVE MULTIPLE TIMES- PLEASE FIX THESE MINOR ISSUES
Best Game Out There!
by iYarelisx3 on 2021/02/22 05:03
I must say the graphics in this game is the best. I love how detailed every aspect of this game is. The best part? Absolutely no ADs! I hate waiting on ads & the fact that this game doesn’t have any, just makes it so much better. I like that you can earn spoons in a lot of ways & there really is no reason to have to pay money for boost when there are so many ways to earn them. Reading through other reviews, I see a lot of people talk about how some levels are way too hard & having to use boost but I mean, it’s a game, it’s meant to be hard. I don’t really see a downfall, I mean yes it’s frustrating but you can play extra shifts to earn money or spoons & use those boosts. I was definitely upset that you couldn’t transfer your money from one country to the next but it makes sense. If we could transfer money from one country to the other, than we’d be able to upgrade real fast & I feel like that would take the fun away from having to re-earn that money. Overall, this game is so amazing & I wish I could find more games like this. I would definitely recommend people to download & play.
Great game but new update freezes and limits
by Luvthisgame2 on 2018/02/11 06:40
I fell in Love with the game because of its easy to play but not have to get broke playing it quality. I wish I could have given it a 5* but this new update has brought it down. The game design is good and the levels do get increasingly hard, but the best part of this game was that kept me playing was the ability to play without having to buy a package every minute; you bought a package either by playing extra shifts or with cask when you got stuck on a level and that was only a few times. I understand you need to get paid, though. Also, this game never froze for me and I played it for over an hour straight daily. Now the game is frozen when I open it, when I select a level, in the middle of game play and at the ending of a game. It also doesn’t allow me to scroll back and make more money in previous levels like I used to be able to with working extra shifts. Also, why is there a cap of 25 cupcakes? I understand 50, but 25 is kinda low for a cap on cupcakes, you can use that alone on the bonus round. Please, the game I love so much, I have been having to put down and try and find another game to play due to all these changes. Kindly make an adjustment, especially for the freezing issue. Thank you.
Fun game
by hurricanehag on 2018/09/22 21:08
I really enjoy the game. It's challenging. I don't like that I don't get to decide which plate an item tapped is added to, or which customer gets served. I've never had to spend real money to advance in the game (and I'm all the way to Munich), but it can be a real challenge to earn enough money or enough likes to advance through some levels. Strategic use of boosters and cupcakes is a must. Replaying finished levels is a bit boring, but at least you can earn free boosters by completing daily challenges. On the whole, I'd say if you like time management games, this one is definitely worth a try. Of similar games, I like the gameplay of Cooking Fever better, but that game is a true money-grubber and they never update it. **Adding a couple of dislikes: The newest cities, such as London and Munich, have some levels that are truly impossible to pass without boosts. Over 80 plates to serve with 65 seconds on the clock is ridiculous and unfair. I don’t like that the money I’ve earned in completed cities is useless. There should be some kind of conversion that gives me some value for those coins in new cities. I also really dislike that I have to re-download every single restaurant every time there’s a game update.
You need money
by yeahyeahnono on 2017/09/10 22:45
I love the game so much but can't seem progress further than the burger levels because I need "spoons" which can only be earned at certain levels, which become locked after you play them once, or you must wait til " jobs become available ". The other way to get spoons is to pay actual money and I don't think that's right to ask, in order to progress in a free game. The game fails me from progressing for stupid reasons out of my control. 2 examples.. one time the game will say, ran out of customers! Add more? And it costs 35 spoons which is hard to get. Well, say I build up 35 spoons. Ok, I replay the level to progress.. I spend the 35 spoons to add more customers. I serve a few people.. Then it pops up yet another message. Again!!! Ran out of customers. Please pay another 35 spoons. Really? The second example.. the game will say ran out of time. Buy more time? Same scenario. You buy time with spoons or clocks.. both which are hard to get once you've played up to say, level 28. So I'm stuck. I just keep playing the same levels over and over again, hoping one day the developers will publish an update to allow me to progress without spending actual money, because I really would like to experience the other restaurants...
Use to play everyday - new update will make me uninstall
by kristin1838572927 on 2019/03/16 14:45
I am SO disappointed in this game now. I almost finished the New Orleans level and I’ve played this game for like 2-3 years now? The only game I’ve every continuously played in my life. Now whenever they update they purposely add something sketchy to it. They just “added” to the bonus level (the only time you can actually get money to upgrade) and made it to where you can’t accidentally click the wrong thing AT ALL. It’s so sleazy they would do that...I’m so sad that I have to uninstall this but when it’s not fun anymore because they ruined it, it’s not fun anymore. They also keep adding all these weird events that creates bugs like not saving your game progress and not being able to earn any rewards you get...one time I was trying to win the event and kept winning, they weren’t adding my score up, it was the same number after every level I won! This game originally had 5 stars from me, but yeah have to give it 1 for screwing over the people that have played this game since it started. Bottom line - don’t F with the bonus level...not cool. Bye Cooking Craze 👋
Pay to play
by Guardog781212 on 2019/02/14 01:31
This game is NOT worth blowing money on,the lives regenerate entirely too slow(every 30 mins for a life). They have made the later levels impossible to beat without boosts that cost money to purchase. This could have been (and still could be, if the developers care about what people say) a very entertaining game, if the hearts regenerated every 5-10 mins instead of every half hour,and they made the levels bearable without boosts. Why not listen to these reviews,and improve the game? People would actually continue to play this game instead of loading it,blowing through their lives,and getting frustrated enough to delete it. I’ve given it more time then I probably should have,but it’s on the chopping block to be deleted. There are far too many games in the App Store that are as entertaining,if not far more entertaining then this one,that don’t have as many flaws. 30 mins per heart is beyond ridiculous for a game on a phone. Come on developers,you have a decent format here,why not cut the greed down,and offer a product that people won’t delete after a few frustrating days? Fix the issues,and the 1 and 2 star ratings will rise,I guarantee it. You will get more players and revenue if you put a product out that people want to play,and keep players from deleting after a couple days.
I really like this game except...
by Puff-puff100 on 2020/08/19 18:15
I find some of the levels virtually impossible to beat without spending money to get more spoons because there’s no previous levels available to get more since you have beat them all. Another problem I have discovered which is not necessarily the games fault, but I have a iPhone and the bar to close the game is always in the bottom of the screen, which makes the sensitivity messed up, and you unable to click on items that are done, causing you to loose levels because you either burn something or can’t get the food out of the cooking area and customers leave. I may have to try to finish these levels on a tablet which will cause other problems because of the tablet size. Another issue I have found is that if you technically beat a level but the timer hasn’t run out and you make a mistake you loose the level. For example; serve 12 plates of food without trashing anything. I had 14/12 plates of food with time still in the clock and double clicked a plate and lost. Even though I had surpassed the amount of plates needed to pass the level.
Awesome game if things are fixed
by Rotty mom on 2017/11/18 03:53
I love the idea of the game but the way some of it is executed ruined it for me. One of the worst features of this game is the way you trash food. It's ridiculously easy to accidentally hit an item twice (which trashes the food), especially when you're timed and clicking the food fast, and then you lose the whole board and your life. Some people have an issue and our fingers jump without doing it on purpose. It should be that you have to drag the food to trash it. The other horrible feature is that our money isn't carried over into other countries. It's so very annoying when you start out with $0 and need 50 upgrades, (and yet you worked in the country before and have $90,000). To get those upgrades it takes an insanely long time to get them, and you have to play the same mundane boards over and over to even upgrade twice. I stopped playing because it's so very annoying. That and because some boards you can't beat without an instant chef hat no matter how quick and efficient you are. I wasted a lot of money doing it. The worst though is even with the highest upgrades it takes too long for the food to cook so it's impossible to beat certain boards without that instant food option. If these few things (which everyone seems to mention) were upgraded/fixed it would be an awesome game.
Can’t Win
by Brwnsugamc on 2018/03/03 16:12
Game is so difficult to beat at least at the Paris level. First level ability to win was reasonable, but you can’t build enough coins to update in Paris so you will play one level upwards of 50 to 60 times just to NOT get the golden ticket or lose all of your hearts in the process and have to wait forever to play again. I don’t understand why the coin rewards are so low that you can’t upgrade unless you play levels 700 times. I understand needing difficulty, but impossible is unnecessary. Why not charge people a flat fee to play games, instead of a free download that could end up costing 100’s of dollars just to get spoons and coins to play. Hell, I’d pay the cost of an X box or PlayStation game just to have the opportunity to play seamlessly and WIN every once in a while. Even following strategy you can’t win some levels because the cookers are too slow or you try to have foods on deck but the guests only want one type of thing so you end up burning stuff. If you don’t win levels, then no coins to update 🤷🏾‍♀️. Sad because the game is fun. I know money needs to be made but geeeez. Make it manageable.
Dislike the new update
by bwinsor2 on 2020/05/05 07:00
I’ve really been enjoying this game being on quarantine. It’s a good one to play for a little while here and there between the demands of my kids and my job, but I have to say I hate the new update. Now the upgrades pop up to tell me what is available to be upgraded. It’s super annoying. I now have to hit “cancel” 2-3 times every time I want to play a new level. When it first updated I wasn’t paying attention to what had popped up and accidentally clicked yes and spent 4,000 coins on an upgrade I didn’t want or need. I was SOO IRRITATED because I was closing in on the amount I needed for a more expensive upgrade. Like 9,000 or something and had to spend extra time in extra shift levels which are tedious. I also dislike the fact that when you go to a new area your money doesn’t go with you. You have to start over and the new upgrades are way more expensive. We’ll see if I keep playing much longer, but for now at least I guess I’ll keep going. Haven’t spent any real money on the game so that says something. I hate games that almost force you to spend money to keep going. I hardly use any of the power ups too so that’s nice.
Great as a calming tool/stress reliever
by RaveeBabee on 2019/11/15 23:56
I have never been into game apps, never played Candy Crush, that farm game or any of the other popular ones. When I would DL a game here & there I always deleted it within a day or two b/c the interest wasn’t there. I usually like word or mind games but I stumbled upon this game in 2017 and have been playing faithfully. This game is extremely organized, efficient, fun, has cool graphics and I’ve rarely encountered technical issues. I also love how culturally competent the creators of the dishes appear to strive to be; makes the game so much more authentic. I have never spent a dime in this game as the daily tasks and special events keep my inventory of spoons & boosts stacked. I do hate that they put a cap on the cupcakes but I’ve adjusted. I have a stressful career & sometimes I’ll stop to play for a few minutes at my desk to help de-stress. Clearing out jobs or tasks within the time frame help me feel better about not meeting my real deadlines at work lol. I also sometimes play at night before bed to wind down. I’m just waiting for them to add Havana as a city!!
Hits and misses
by Awestergren17 on 2020/07/06 20:47
I loved this game. Great way to clear your mind but there are a lot of issues. Some levels are so easy a toddler could complete them, then other levels, Tokyo in particular, are SO challenging you need 2 boosts to get through them. They always have other challenges you can do but I have zero interest in them because the money doesn’t help you at your current level. Currency changes with each country which is so dumb because there’s no reason to complete levels that don’t have golden tickets attached to them. Clearly it gets more challenging, which I appreciate, but I’m at a place now in Tokyo where I’m not willing to spend anymore REAL money to buy spoons and boosts and I can’t pass any levels without upgrades even though I’ve purchased several and they were always the “recommended” ones. I want it to be challenging, but I don’t think anyone actually tested Tokyo for them. Another complaint is that you can’t put some ingredients where you want them. You simply click and the game puts them wherever. This is incredibly pointless on the hard levels because then you can’t fill plates, you risk burning food, or needing to throw things away. If I could determine what went where, the game would still be challenging, but not impossible.
It's a decent game that has minor flaws.
by SMC_2013! on 2017/09/10 10:31
(9/10) Since my last review I've just dealt with the game makers not going to change the way the game is played but it wasn't as bad as it is now. I'm playing in Bangkok and this level is the worst of it. The game expects you to make 790$ in cash with only 12-15 customers. Even I've spent real money to buy boosts and you have to use (3) additional 3+ customers. At this point I don't mind spending a few dollars but to force me to use my money when the levels are designed like that I'd rather just uninstall. There's no other way to win the levels without it. (7/27) I agree with the previous post. This game is a very fun game but some of the levels are set up to force you to use a boost. I've played a level 3x perfectly but it's a timed round and not enough customers come in for the amount of one it's set thus you have to use a 30sec boost which I don't feel you should be forced to use it. The game overall is a good one and I would just adjust that if possible. I also agree on what topping goes on what and which customer it goes to. That brings it back to the game setting you up since if you have an angry cust and one that hasn't been waiting long the plate should go to the angry one...but the game decides. Please take into consideration.
Great concept but falls short
by Joselyn34 on 2018/01/11 21:09
I have been a big fish game player forever and usually they measure up. This game is fun and addicting for sure and I like a challenge but the expectations on some levels are made for you to fail. I’m not afraid to spend money and I will when a game doesn’t force me to. I am still in New York and these “need likes” levels are ridiculous. I have already spent money and have used the “add customers” on the last one I had to add customers 4 times in one level just to pass it. Not only do they not give you enough customers by far..but the amount of time they give you when each person is asking for a lot of stuff makes it impossible to get it all done in the time they give you. New people walk in and they are not in a line so it’s easy to lose who was “next” plus the food will go to the most unhappy person at the time anyways and that may not even be who you wanted it to go to. I get they are trying to make money but losing customers especially those who are willing to spend is the last thing they should be doing. And since I see in the reviews my same issues already being stated it’s obvious the concerns of the people don’t concern them one bit, so they have lost another one.
Awesome but would like some improvements
by crazyitaliancook on 2018/06/27 03:43
I LOVE THIS GAME! I’m a late night person and play when I have time and will play for hours! I’m in Moscow and I have hundred of thousands of coins in previous cities that don’t carry over and I have spent probably over $100 on boosts and spoons in the months I have been playing this game. However, would love to be able to use that money towards SOMETHING! Anything really! Also, I agree with others that the infinite lives should be treated as a boost to use whenever you want I have lost so many of the daily ones simply because I can’t play for 17 minutes right then or even an hour or whatever the time may be. That would be a fantastic change! I spend money on the game but would like to get a little more out of my hard earned coins that I have spent HOURS earning just to pass levels because I’m competitive and have this compulsive desire to be caught up on the cities before a new one comes! Please take it into consideration because it is very frustrating. Other than those issues, I enjoy this game way more than I probably should.
Bugs, bugs and more bugs.
by naomariell on 2019/02/12 22:44
So let me be honest by saying first that I really enjoyed this game for the past month I’ve played it. I even spent some money on spoons. Obviously, the developers cannot pass on the chance to make money off of the game as well. At the end of the day, it’s their job to make a game entertaining enough that makes you spend money on it. The levels are challenging when they need to be and unlike others who reviewed the game, I believe it’s only fair that some levels require some strategy when using boosts that you might get by exchanging spoons or winning tournaments. However, the game gets extremely frustrating when “random” things happen that affect the gameplay and even prizes. I am currently on level 70 in Rome and there was a tournament where I had to win 15 straight levels. Did it all, used boosts, extra time, extra customers and spoons so the game could at the end decide to completely “crash” and not give me any of the prizes I WON. This was all after multiple crashes and having to play levels over because it couldn’t successfully sync with Facebook. This game is in serious need of an update. I’ll update this review when that happens...I’m waiting.
Challenging and Fun 👍🏾
by Cfurlongue on 2018/02/03 16:23
Overall a fun game. Good amount of challenge but doesn’t feel impossible. Some of the levels do not feel like you can beat them without using boosters which means spending money, that’s annoying and my only complaint. For example having to serve 25 people in 35 seconds when each person has 3 orders, you have to buy more time even with a boost 🙄. The first restaurant in Tokyo was insane the sushi was really hard to see and thus made it hard to complete because I spent a lot of time trying to figure out the shapes. I almost gave up on the overall game because of it. One more thing, the bonus levels that you can play once you’ve completed a city are fun but we should be able to do something with all the extra money (like use it to buy boosts). I currently have 180k in NYC but can’t do anything with it. Maybe update that! Also it’s annoying when in bonus levels you’re given a certain dish to make or person to serve x amount of times but then those things never come up in the level which causes you to have to play bonus levels way more than you should.
Best cooking game by far!
by Beyonce8474 on 2017/11/07 06:13
I love this game! So many levels without having to buy additional levels, each city increases in difficulty and your own time management skills you either fail or succeed. I would have given this game 5 stars, but the only issue I have with it is that once you earn an excessive amount of money on a country, you cannot transfer that money to use for the next country. Which gives the game a bit of a challenge, because when you start off on a new country you are forced to replay levels to earn enough money to upgrade your items needed to advance to some of the more harder levels where you are timed or have to earn enough money to pass it and if your items or cookware isn’t upgraded it’s impossible to pass the level . I really hope that the developers take this issue into account or at least give the player a way to use your unearned money to buy boosts or more lives, or like a way to transfer that money to another countries currency...other than that better than any and all the cooking games that are currently on the App Store!
It’s fun but it is a money trap!
by eappletree on 2019/06/14 15:47
Let me start by saying I love,love,love this game but I can’t afford to love it much longer. It is fun and challenging and going to different cities with different foods and cooking challenges will have me playing for hours. I agree with many other reviewers who have complained about only being able to pass levels if you drop real money on boosters. I have stopped playing as much because I feel like the game is rigged to get you to pay to pass levels. I spent too much money before I realized this. I am stuck on level 78 or 9 because their is neither enough time to make 2200 dollars. I will only get to the new restaurant if I by the price doubler and I just can’t drop more money on this game! I will need to find a replacement game but it won’t be from this game company. Great game but definitely rigged to get you to dish out real money. I’ve already spent too much money, it’s like a slot machine! Other issues: 1. Coins should be able to purchase more than upgrades, like spoons and boosters. 2. Your coins from one country to the next should be able to be exchanged in the new country. You shouldn’t just lose it and start from zero.
Impossible Wins
by ai 4 jmusic on 2018/12/20 15:42
This game is so much fun and quite addictive. I loved playing diner dash back in the day so I thought this would be fun. The New York level was pretty good but the Paris level makes a lot of the issues with this game very clear. In New York, I had one instance when the game didn’t issue enough dishes to win the level. To customer support’s credit, they responded to my complaints within 24 hours and credited me with some boosters. However, the Paris level is riddled with the same issue. Most of the levels that required a certain number of likes and dishes to pass often require a boost for more time or more customers because the game didn’t provide enough from the start. I’m all for a challenge but it’s unfair to not provide just the basic number or customers or dishes. I don’t even mind paying for boosts, but I’m against making boosts a requirement to win. If that’s the case, make those levels locked/bonus levels because the main game should be winnable for everyone. When they fix that issue, I’ll be more than happy to increase my rating. For now, I’ll give the game 2 stars because of customer service’s swift response (5-star service) and gameplay (0-star for requiring boosts to win).
I use to love the game ... !!!
by Kimberliee2002 on 2017/10/07 14:25
I was addicted to this game ... I even stopped playing my usuals! I HATE the fact that you cannot rollover your coins to the different countries. I understand in the beginning of a new country, you have to earn coins to gain, but Rio is flippin ridiculous! Who knows what the others look like 🙄 Not to mention, the first purchase of merchandise is I guess ok’d price, but the secondary purchase is expensive as fudge! I know, I know you want use to spend actually money because it’s not free to make the game for our entertainment, but could you make it a little easier to pass level 11 and so forth on Rio and future countries. I really don’t understand how the heck can you be timed and expect us to meet the requirement to complete that level and he customers wants kabob WITH vegetables with it 😶 That’s when you’re forced to make a purchase because you’d want to complete that level. Who knows how the other levels look like 😶 Since the level is hard to complete, it has put a halt of me WANTING TO PLAY and I know I’m the only one 😳 If the coins were transferable, maybe people wouldn’t mind spending money to play because they’ve exhausted their coins 🤔
It’s ok
by App Reviewerrrr on 2019/01/27 03:30
I have not played this game for very long but it’s clear the makers of this app wanted money. You runout of lives quickly because you can only have 5 at a time. You can’t earn spoons very quickly either so it’s hard to use them. You can buy those things for real money in the store though, so it seems like the game is rigged for you to need to spend money. The game is fun though and addictive but in a good way. I just get annoyed when I get stuck use all my lives and have to wait for a hour so they can regenerate. I feel like you should be able to play extra shifts if your lives are out. Going back to the spoon problem they can fix that by giving you more spoons per level. The money for upgrades is way to much considering how much money you make per level. You can also get bored in this game so I suggest more food court challenges. You can go from being on top to having no coins, no spoons, no lives, & no boosts. Which happened to me in 20 minutes. It’s just annoying how little you get of those things and how quickly you use them up. I hope for the makers of this game to fix these issues in a new update soon.
A couple of things...

I really do enjoy this game; I’ve been playing for about 6 months now. They’ve made some really good updates & some really bad ones along with it. I’m glad they got rid of the “touch the wrong thing & end your turn” on the bonus levels because those were absolutely stupid, but I’m mad they shortened them to 180 seconds instead of 300. That’s where I make up a lot of extra coins when I’m needing upgrades. I’ve also noticed that my game force quits when I am offline or in airplane mode, which isn’t too often, but would be frustrating for someone who constantly is. I also really personally hate the bonus levels because you’re not getting any additional coins for the food served. One upgrade that they made a few months ago and i loved was the month long, blue star challenge, but it looks like they just got rid of it for no apparent reason. Can you please bring that back?! This game has its flaws, but is also quite enjoyable if you play a little here & a little there, they just need to fix a couple more bugs!
this game was fun until it wasn’t as much

I truly enjoy this game and it is my favorite past time! I got my husband and friend to play! The reason I only gave it 3 stars was because 1) you can’t transfer your money over! I have so much money in New York! Even if they would do an exchange rate I would be happy! I am currently in Paris and it’s taking me forever to upgrade anything because of the lack of money you get. So fix that! You developers don’t lose out! You have so many cities to still play. 2) I literally worked at an extra shift in Paris and I went from having 11 people to serve to get a certain amount of money to like 6-7 people every time I lost and needed to start over. I was forced to use a boost or extra customers. Not cool bro. Don’t manipulate your peeps. 3) Once you log into facebook you can’t get extra lives or double my coins by watching ads! Bring the ads! That’s where you make money! 4) the challenges aka the random maps get way too difficult and it ends up being more frustrating than fun. I get that you guys need to make money but keep the game fun. I’m sure you make enough money to do so.
Happy Birthday to them!!!

June 2018- I am playing the birthday challenge and it is a joke. Full of technical difficulties...can’t place fruit and candy on the cake, can I have double and triple tap to get the cake on the plate. You have to use power ups to get win the levels. Hmmm...could that be the reason why they are giving you almost two weeks to play it. Not playing it! August 27th Update: I am on the Rio section of the game. I would like to know, how am I supposed to grill vegetables and meat on the same grill at the same time when there are on three sections on the grill? I tell you...you have yo use the instant cook boost every time because every customer wants vegetables with their meet. Are the developers of this game playing the levels before they release it? I love this this game; however, it costs too much money to move past levels. I collected over $40,000 coins while in New York, but when I moved to Paris the money didn't transfer over. In order to upgrade in Paris, you HAVE TO spend money or YOU WILL NOT advance levels.
FUN game but...

EDIT: I USED to love this game. I’m about a step away from uninstalling. Any game that essentially forces you to buy boosts and never gives you the option of earning the ones you need is not a fun game. Yes, it has fantastic graphics and started out very fun and just challenging enough to keep me engaged. But then I got to a level that is impossible to beat without a money booster and I used up the ones I’d earned trying to get past one or two other price boost levels because they too were impossible without the boosts. I don’t spend money on games and there’s no way to earn spoons to buy boosters without playing new levels or getting a daily reward. Very disappointing. And like others, I think the update screwed things up a little because when I play the special challenge, it won’t sense my touch for one of the foods so I can’t play that either. And it repeatedly thinks I’m trashing things when I’m not, it’s just not sensing me right away and when it does, I’ve tapped twice. I’ll probably end up uninstalling it, which is REALLY disappointing because it’s a great game in concept and design. But don’t force people to pay to keep playing your free game. Give them other options, even ones that take longer to earn.
The New update
by Ronni1969 on 2020/09/15 03:07
I was under the impression I had unlimited lives if I upgraded the Fall Edition, but only had the standard lives. At first I really really loved this game, but it becomes impossible to pass some of the stages even with good skills, adding a cooking helper, it just can't be done even in 60s stages. In the beginning you don't realize spending coins to update is not necessary-they update as you move through stages on their own but it is a balancing act. You just can't ever completely finish without spending real money-I don't doubt it is well deserved, but I do think as many ads that I've watched and actually downloaded many of the other games advertised that maybe they should be paying or even google should pay something. For what we pay for a phone, then the monthly bill-we shouldn't be nickeled and dime at every turn. Developers are being ripped as well. Consumers of these games & developers should demand more because they've got it off all our backs! Sorry for the cynicism, it's the 'times' we live in. Graphics are perfect, I love the variety, and the developers have it fairly set if you have the funds to win. I'm still not deleting it yet.
So awful!
by Jonnieray on 2019/05/16 03:46
Omigosh. I have the sinking feeling that this is one of the games that you’re forced to download in the infernal abyss, and the fiends down there MAKE you play it. For starters, it’s a lot like a real job. A very, very cruddy job. Chef Insulin barges in and bellows directions at you: “Cook a donut!” Or “Upgrade your equipment!” etc. He never chills out; just like a real boss. Then the customers come in, and they don’t even remotely behave like real customers. I don’t know what miserable country this game is set in, but it’s surely not America (well...possibly California or Oregon). The customers don’t even have the sense to get in a line, nope; they all just randomly form up shoulder-to-shoulder and start barking out their idiotic orders—firing-squad style. And if they don’t think you’re doing good enough? Well; they just wander off like a bunch of lemmings. This game will make you want to stalk into the nearest hippie-bistro and clothesline everyone placing an order. It isn’t much better if you make them happy, either; they just JIGGLE as they chunk money at you and then they race off like the apocalypse is coming...not nearly soon enough if you’ve played this game for any duration longer than a femto-second. Ah; the dangers of placing a cafe right next to a cannibis store. Avoid!
Faulty...before and worse, after the update
by Getting frustrated 13 on 2019/12/30 12:13
Gane was fun...but, for the last couple of days is not working properly. Getting the double coins and using spoons for additional time freezes the game and just takes the spoons and the life without giving the double coins nor giving the ability to continue the game even after the spoons were taken. It used to give you the opportunity to get a life, by watching a video; now, the life is not given...the sound of the video is there, yet no life and no actual video. It is difficult as is to pass the levels, and when spoons are taken away, that makes it even more difficult. Update to include that now when the “double coins” are offered, you can never get them either as the screen goes black with just the sound of the advertisement...once the sound is gone, there’s nothing to do. The game needs to be closed and when you re-enter, there are no double coins given. Also, a keyboard doesn’t populate within the app to allow users to submit an issue. Was able to do the CAPTCHA, but, nothing else. Unable to enter any other information without the keyboard to type.
I like this game BUT...
by Lordeofchaos on 2018/08/05 22:07
The graphics are great. Responsiveness is great. The way you can go and pick up extra shifts to help make more coins I think is awesome. But there are some things that aren't ok. One thing is when you are trying to get so many likes and they only send in people who want one or two things and then I run out of customers. It prompts me to continue if I buy spoons. I don't feel like I should have to buy spoons if the game actually sent people in line. As I go through the levels I notice how that becomes more and more of an issue. It's not me getting the food out fast enough, it's the game not sending people to where I can make it close enough. Now I know there are challenges that need to be met and I get that, it's a game. What I don't get is why some levels you literally have to use boosts to get through it and I don't want to have to use my boosts up to progress. And naturally when my boosts are up the only way to continue is to buy boosts. It's frustrating. I really do like the game but when small things like that stop me from continuing it makes me not want to keep playing.

I have to agree with other long time players. First this has been my favorite game to play by far, but it is getting more and more frustrating and seems to actually becoming unfair. I am in Istanbul and for the first time I feel you can barely get through the 5th stop first tier without using additional spoons/boosts. I’ve really noticed lately that when you start playing and you get the extra 10 seconds which used to be plenty of time to get 2-5 more dishes the 2nd customer comes out very late, it seems I actually am waiting and when he does he barely shows his order when he’s walking away, almost seems like cheating and planned to make you spend more money. Second, like others have stated , we understand that level are going to become harder and more challenging, but if they’re actually built with the purpose of being impossible unless you start spending more and more money, my interest is definitely going to wain if not completely end. I hope something is done about this, if not I will be walking away also.
Fun at first
by Issy829 on 2018/10/23 16:39
It’s a fun and addicting game at first. Each kitchen gets harder like any normal game, but once you get to a point, the levels get ridiculously hard to the point it’s not enjoyable any more, like London and Munich. You really have to upgrade the entire kitchen to pass any level after 10 in any of the new kitchens. Too many things you tap that you have to get started cooking. Louisiana was too much! Ridiculous! And if you hit something twice, it’s trashed. Horrible feature! Money doesn’t roll over from one country/city to the next. The touch levels are stupid especially on the fast levels where you have to serve 72 people. You can’t win without accidentally hitting an item and you lose. Stupid feature! I have, also, served 5 dishes at a time being fully upgraded and lose the level when you only have so many customers to serve and didn’t make enough money. It forces you to use spoons or actually pay and buy boosts. This is unfair in my opinion. The game definitely needs lots of tweaks. Im almost at the point of removing the app since it’s now unenjoyable.
