Awesome game
by kaykinlee on 2020/09/29 00:19
I have been playing this game for so very long I love it so much but sometimes it can be hard and I love the food truck levels 😀😀😀 I play day and night I like the people’s the game to so all I’m saying is that this is probably the best game ever even if there’s haters out there that don’t like the game it is still the best game ever like Taylor Swift said haters gonna hat
Great game but....
by Kelppy28 on 2020/09/28 23:16
This game is great. However not only do they advertise for you to buy options to help you advance but when you lose a level they literally take away levels and things that you earn. Instead of just re-doing the level like normal games. They want you to buy buy buy. No thanks!
Too much fun!!!
by Anasazi2010 on 2020/09/28 23:02
I play every day!! Really relaxing!!

Love the game
Best game ever
by unicons and cats on 2020/09/28 21:20
There is not many adds if any at all the levels aren’t to hard I recommend this game to any age it’s amazing
Slow Game
by Dorisdaz on 2020/09/28 16:32
I actually updated the game The game isn’t moving fast as before It slow this time And things takes time before it move
Possible bug??
by Noiykgbgvbfdv on 2020/09/28 15:14
I really enjoy this game and have spent more money than I’d care to admit on it. However, there seems to be an issue with Sugar Rush. I was on win 14 of 15 - even spent rubies to pass the previous level so I wouldn’t loose my place - the. Got pulled away, came back a few hours later, only to find it has dropped me back to the beginning. This has happened a few times and it is very frustrating. You shouldn’t loose 15 some odd levels of progress just because you aren’t able to play all the way through. Please fix this as I am definitely a loyal player.
For kids
by Veggiedog30 on 2020/09/28 12:41
Good game for kids, pretty simple for adults. Doesn’t seem to get harder.
Love this game but...
by StellanTux on 2020/09/28 03:08
Ok, so I absolutely love this game. I’ve had this for about a year and it’s a great game. However, it is very difficult to get banknotes and rubies, and hard to take care of your pet because it requires more rubies. Thanks! 🤨🤨🤨😡😡😁😁😁😁😁😁😁🥳🥳🥳🥳🤪🤪🤪
Fun, fun, fun

I love this game day Nd night
Awesome! Ish...
by Gbot2170 on 2020/09/27 22:44
AMAZING GAME!! For the first couple of restaurants. It gets too hard to get gems, which you need to progress easily. Every level is a challenge. I recall crying and quitting because of this game. But still, 3 stars because it's super fun if you can get enough gems. There's also wayyy too many adds.
Enjoyable but pay to win
by Ry🤮1 on 2020/09/27 21:49
This game is upsetting because it wants you to purchase diamonds all the time!
It’s Fun, but...
by GirlyGirl406 on 2020/09/27 20:06
It reminded me a bit of Cake Mania but with a helper. It’s a cute & fun game that isn’t overly difficult. The Gems get spent super fast & it’s annoying that the game almost forced you to spend real money to complete certain tasks and bonuses. It’s cute, it’s fun & you could easily lose at least an hour on it.
Fun!
by smanskiqueen on 2020/09/27 19:32
Amazing game, 10/10 would recommend!
Latest Update RUINED the game!
by money-grab-gets-the-BOOT!! on 2020/09/27 18:38
Updating my review because we deserve some answers: Can you please explain to me why you have changed the metrics of the game recently to make it almost impossible to pass levels? For example, I have upgraded everything in my current kitchen to max capacity except the two grills, which still need one more upgrade. My current level requires me to only serve three cooked dishes which I can serve my heart because I’ve been playing this level for days. How can the money required for the level be so much with EVERY FOOD ITEM upgraded to its maximum amount? I don’t understand this?? Your game used to be fun and I have spent so much money on it because I enjoy it, but these new requirements are getting ridiculous and greedy. Please change the game back or explain how you expect people to pass levels without dropping a small fortune on every kitchen?! So everything will now need to be at 100% to pass levels? And now we have to pass level 80 (not level 50) before unlocking a new kitchen? Getting to level 80 is impossible without spending a fortune! Using the roller skates or other items doesn’t even work! I’m disappointed in Kitchen Diary. You turned 2 and then ruined your own game! Sad. CHANGE IT BACK TO THE GAME WE ACTUALLY ENJOYED!

by apitbull1 on 2020/09/27 11:09
@MYTONA.. if you are rich and can afford to play the game, then, yes, it’s fun. I’ve been playing for awhile, and the changes that they have made makes it impossible to play without buying rubies to get through the game.. if you contact them, you receive a pre-written response, without the help you need. They do not care about your suggestions, and they don’t forward them to the “team “ that they say they have, so, don’t bother to give your thoughts!!
To the creator
by Mermaid lover 27 on 2020/09/27 00:02
I hate how it’s so different from the add when I bought this game I thought I would be doing what the add was doing not doing something completely different but other than that I really like the game so that is why I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars which that isn’t even that bad
Amazing #1!!:)
by lavender crislis on 2020/09/26 19:43
This is amazing It’s addicting !!
Do not hate this game
by Londonl15 on 2020/09/26 19:32
It’s fast but fun in a way. I don’t know how to say it’s a good game but I’ll say it’s REALLY fun.
Fun but annoying if you are not going to pay up
by Mfj5790 on 2020/09/26 19:01
The game is fun and addictive but be ready to open your wallet to get far in this game unless you are willing to spend numerous hours trying to get thru impossible levels
So good...
by Can I do below 1 on 2020/09/26 16:33
I just can’t stop playing it is so fun.
Me encanta
by Hola tambien hablo español on 2020/09/26 14:27
Es uno de los mejores juegos del mundo
I like it but...
by Tammi70 on 2020/09/26 04:30
I shouldn’t have to spend my rubies when the customers run out. That’s not my fault. It makes me upset because once I do it, I have to keep doing it then I have to buy more rubies or stop playing for a few days. That’s not fair. Also, the farther in game you get, the harder it becomes to get rubies. Not cool.
Best game ever!!
by apcifjalw on 2020/09/26 03:12
Best game ever!!
Needs improving
by lisa vera on 2020/09/25 23:09
I try to put the tocos on the burner and it won’t go on there and I had a problem like that in the pizza cooking two can u plz fix it it won’t cook it at all I can’t play it
Fun but not free
by Lakita Lover on 2020/09/25 20:17
This game is lots of fun, but as others have said, it is not possible to progress past a certain point without purchasing rubies. I usually wait until the game offers the occasional sale of 100 rubies for $2, which is really what they should cost all the time considering how many are needed to make the later restaurants playable. The art and gameplay are good and the new pets are a cute feature. Aside from pricing, the only major thing I would change is the way players travel between restaurants. Once you have several pages worth of restaurants it is really annoying to have to scroll across the map and wait through multiple loading screens to get to the restaurants from the beginning of the game. It would be much better if there were a button on every screen that opened a menu of all the restaurants a player has unlocked. Then players could scroll through a list and teleport directly to any restaurant they want to play in. It would also be great if there were options for spending various coin types once players have completed an area. Maybe add a shop or a wheel for each section of the game, so when players go back to old restaurants to earn achievements they don't end up with hundreds of thousands of coins that they can't spend on anything.
Greedy
by Bri Kramer on 2020/09/25 01:46
I like this game but anytime I play a game where they are begging you to spend money it just makes me more adamant that I will not spend one penny on it and I’ll beat it without spending money. You literally can’t advance for days if you don’t spend money (ON A GAME, literally the biggest waste of money I can even imagine). Otherwise the game rocks. 2 gems for advancing a whole level? Greedy.
best cooking game ever
by Weassuuuuup on 2020/09/25 00:29
they always give you chances to win rubies other like other games where you’d have to buy to really get them.
Love the game but support is not good
by Whiskas98 on 2020/09/25 00:02
I’ve been playing this game for awhile and I LOVE IT. however, the support team is pretty awful and doesn’t give actual answers. Also they updated their game so that players will have I spend more real money instead of making their money of advertisements. Their most recent update removed the option to watch ads to speed up request for assistants. I contacted support and they said “ads don’t always show up for everyone” which is complete bull because they have always shown up and it was never at random. Not I have to wait 3 hours to request an assistant UNLESS I use rubies to speed it up. So basically their most recent update was to remove ads and try to force players to buy rubies so they can compete In guild quests. In short they updated their game so players who have been playing for a long time and are loyal to the game will have to spend more actual money.
Glitching in restaurant 3

People are ordering raw chicken but not accepting it raw or cooked
Good game!
by HELLO I LIVE U on 2020/09/24 20:57
THIS IS THE BEST I wish there were more updates tho! Very cool app on the App Store! This teaches people to cook more foods!!! Very very cool! There was also a food truck on the app! But the event for it is over but I would say to try to game out!
love it!
by hoperellapuddingpie on 2020/09/24 19:07
I can’t help but continuously play this game. It’s kinda addicting.
Crashes!
by Koolaidkilla990 on 2020/09/24 15:01
Please fix the issue that is causing the app to crash constantly! We have paid too much money into this game to be continually dealing with this. Fix your game!
Recent update took the fun out of grinding
by Boogerpickerpro on 2020/09/24 13:24
I’ve been playing this game for about 2.5 years. They update often to keep it interesting. The recent update took away one of the big things that made the game so great. The currency in the game is rubies, and there used to be a really good balance of the rubies being affordable for those who want to pay to play but still accessible for those who want to just watch the ads and grind it out. I’m in the latter category. The fun part for me was the grinding, but after the recent update, grinding is so hard that it’s just not fun anymore. There is very little utility/reward in updating your restaurant, earning likes, playing the food truck, etc.. The game developers need to update the game again to make the grind rewards more worth it.
Perfect
by estrielle on 2020/09/24 08:56
No cooking game tops this game. Although it takes too much of my money, I just can’t get enough. It’s the most up to date cooking game I’ve downloaded and played. Very very modern. The outfits are AMAZING! I just LOVE IT!
Use to be good
by catpuaay on 2020/09/24 07:16
Use to be good !! You will have to spend money to win
Levels Impossible without Paying
by Taya J. on 2020/09/24 04:06
This game started off great but as you go through levels it seems that some are just impossible to beat unless you fully upgrade most items which requires you to purchase more gems. Starting to seem like a rigged game and after the amount of money I spent I might just uninstall altogether.
Just a few things to make it better.
by ndhrkehyf on 2020/09/23 22:53
I love the updates you’re doing with the game, but how about if you’re gonna do the timeline thing that at least maybe you could add a hairstyle, outfit or shirt/pants to make it worth going for instead of emojis, I could careless about. Also where are the seasonal stores at? Why did you stop that? I loved raising money to buy new hairstyles and outfits.
I’ve had it....
by Judge Imagi on 2020/09/23 20:18
Alright, so perhaps it isn’t the difficulty in the twin Pines restaurant. The fault lies with the gluttonous customer. The gluttonous customer is the worst customer in tasty Hills because when you serve him the last food before he decides to get another field, his heart meter does not fill up but rather decrease. And because of that it’s harder to keep him happier than other customers. Please fix him or remove him. Also, I’ve noticed that the character in the districts as the player moves forward, the character walks a lot slower. Maybe this is my imagination, but I find that she is not walking fast enough compared to earlier districts.
I LOVE THIS GAME I AM OBSESSED
by JiaAggarwal on 2020/09/23 18:03
I have never found a cooking game quite as good as this one!!!! The developers went out of their way to make it the best game possible! The graphics are amazing, and there are about a hundred different things you can do besides cooking! Thanks so much so making this game!
Update it back!!!
by unki691cp on 2020/09/23 15:08
this has become a pay to play game!!!
So addictive ( in a good way)
by bunnydoggyhorsyohmy on 2020/09/23 05:46
This game is by far one of the most addictive games I have ever downloaded! I can’t take my mind off of it whenever I’m not playing it! I have only had it for two days and I am already doing so well! I have a lot of cooking passion myself and I totally relate to almost everything that happens in the game! I do t usually write reviews but I just had to make sure this game got a good rating!
So much fun !!!!
by éla_Amore on 2020/09/23 05:18
In short, If you like Diner Dash - you will love this game. I think this game is so much fun aunt has so much to do so many different sceneries and so many different backgrounds and changes that make it always interesting You’re you’re not always making the same things you start off with the burger place and you can grow into a pizza joint. Overall if you like diner dash from way back when on the old computers, you’re gonna love this! I highly recommend
Great game!
by chillpicklechill on 2020/09/23 01:23
The only thing I don’t like is you do have to spend money to get enough gems to be able to upgrade your kitchen, another reason you would need gems is for better outfits and hairstyles, but if you are used to spending money in games then you are set. This game is addicting and fun I do find myself being like just one more time haha. There is many different restaurants to open and you can always go back and play at the ones you have already completed. I play this game daily it’s one of my favorites.
I want my guild back
by sailor_moon_R on 2020/09/23 00:15
I did enjoy this game I created a guild and you took it away from me! I’m crushed. Great game though gets tougher to earn rubies as you level up.
WOW😱
by hdbfhdndksndj on 2020/09/22 20:51
this game is awsome, I am sooooo addicted to it, literally it’s just so cool, you get to make a character, they’re are nice people, and everything is free. But if you want better clothes, then you would need to buy something, but still amazing! 😍😍😍

I really love this game I play it 24/7 and it is so fun but there is one problem... every time I don’t win a level a couple times there is no lives and I have to get my gems but don’t get me wrong I love this game and it has so good graphics and the way it works I hope you understand thank you ☺️
AMAZING!

Expensive!

Get ready to spend real money!! Unique game, but way to expensive to have fun with it!
stupid game
by le.marklolle on 2020/09/21 20:33
Program developers constantly modify the data, making the game more difficult, very boring, and dishonest
The game is good
by Jennmariatorres on 2020/09/21 19:36
The game is good I have been playing it for 2 years but the problem is their updates always have some type of problem ,the new characters the Yetis are making the game impossible to complete a level that we were able to complete, all money that I’ve spent on rubies because of the problem with the game kicking me out or closing in the middle of a level while using assistants so I had to get rubies to be able to speed up assistants request, hopefully next time they update you test the game before you make us update I am not spending anymore money since I didn’t get reimbursed for all the money I’ve spent

I could sit and play Cooking Diary for hours. Not only is it fun making all the food but I also love upgrading my restaurant and making it look all cute. And it’s free so why wouldn’t you get it.
The best!
by Mushuplayer on 2020/09/21 13:57
I have been playing this game for a while now and I am very pleased with it! It’s not hard to me to earn rubies and the overall gameplay and storyline is awesome! My only suggestion would be to use the coins you gain from past restaurants to maybe convert to rubies or upgrade the new restaurants. Other than that this game is awesome! I actually convinced a few of my friends to play and they love it! ☺️
A glitch occurred :|
by Kaygray2432 on 2020/09/21 00:18
Great app! Super fun and all... ... BUT when I bought these pet cards, I unlocked this a pet cat named “butter”. The next thing I know, it glitches out on me and I no longer own the cat... and I checked the money amount I had, and it was back to it originally was.. so I thought, okay? I’ll just buy the cards again and it will probably give my stuff back or something like that.. but no :| I don’t really care about the pet but I’m kinda nervous about something like this happening again :||| Okay, so this happened again for about two-three times and I’m a little mad cuz I lost three pets + other cool cards.. I found that every time I name the animal it glitches out. It’s not like I’m losing the gems/money though.. that’s the part I’m thankful for. It just takes away the progress I got and made it like I didn’t spend anything or gained anything.
I’m mad
by #weird unicorn bffs on 2020/09/20 23:07
Okay so me and my mom were trying to play together so when she got to a level high enough I sent her a friend request. And she sent me one to but we couldn’t figure out how to accept them. So I went to to help searched up “how to accept a friend request” and it brought me to an article that gave me no help. So I went to chat thing and that gave me no help either. So one update is that you need to make it SO much easier to accept a friend request because you made it way to complicated. It’s really annoying. Please fix this all you need to have is a notification pop up that says “_____ sent you a friend request” that would make it so much easier. The way you have made it is way to complicated. Btw I still haven’t figured out how to accept it. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!
THERE IS. No. WAY U CAN HATE THIS
by thfjygjygyjggygjyg on 2020/09/20 21:50
I absolutely love this game the graphics are so good they are not too many ads in this game is so worth it I can’t wait to the next update if they ever update it cooking diary you have Improve your game
Fun game !
by 👩🏼‍🦲 Nat on 2020/09/20 20:53
Definitely appreciate all the updates on this game and the free gifts from the developers ! I have fun playing this game and I really like my guild ! The one thing that could improve is the look of our characters. Developers can you make a bald option so my character can look more like me ?
close immediately after opening
by dandan0204 on 2020/09/20 18:45
As the title, can’t open it! I need help to fix it!
Fun and addictive app
by 😡really? on 2020/09/20 17:14
Really fun app that you could play all day. As for the ads, the ads are for only if you want to use it to speed up extra time which is very very useful. Although the rubies are very hard to get, it’s a very fun game once you have the rubies from the missions. Highly recommend the game though
READ THIS⬇️
by the reporter is online! on 2020/09/20 16:45
Let me just say you can’t hate this game, it has adorable characters and fun storyline! And it has NO ads, that’s something I really enjoyed about it, But I have one question I’m a 15 and my parents won’t let me buy the golden ticket or key sapphire, I’m on level 25 and I still don’t have any clothe please respond to this! And I just wanna give a thumbs up to all the creators of this game :)
Great game
by Vane504 on 2020/09/20 06:12
This game is great and it’s so many food that everyone in the game eats so different
Not enjoyable anymore
by T. A. MACK on 2020/09/20 05:13
I used to really enjoy playing this game. I would sit and play it for hours. But now the creators are way too focused on the $! It’s not even enjoyable anymore. I’ve updated almost everything in my restaurant but I’m not winning levels why because they want me to PAY! Enjoyed it while it lasted. I’m done playing.

BEST GAME EVER!!! ( mobil game ever)

Honestly I cannot stop playing. Must see for yourself!!!
I’m so confused
by JennBean2323 on 2020/09/19 10:09
Why when I write in the chat for my guild is it disappearing minutes later. My girlfriend says she wrote in the chat as well and no one can see it. I figured I needed to restart the app or something or maybe it needed an update but this is ridiculous. It wasn’t always like this and I really enjoyed the game but if people on my team can’t see I’m communicating with them during the guild competition than what’s the point?! Please fix.
My favorite game

Pretty much addicted to this game i want more free red gems to be easier to get
Another update- still greedy
by Jbcb0407 on 2020/09/18 22:49
I thought with the update they would have took in consideration everyone’s feedback but nothing has changed. Definitely deleting the app bc it’s impossible to play now without dishing out a lot of money. I hate giving bad reviews but this one is deserved. Looks horrible for the developers during a pandemic, greedy isn’t a good look. When you spin the wheel and land on a free life... you never get it.
They force the micro transactions
by Dkkdkf on 2020/09/18 21:51
Fun game, unfortunately they really force the micro transaction. You cannot upgrade and progress without spending rubies. Impossible to grind in this game. You have to pay to continue to play.
Glitches

Ive been playing this game for a long time now. I open the app and all of my progress is LOST. I was finished with Ice Castle, my username was Viktoria and my guild was Chefs for Christ. Please help me get back my game. I tried to use my game center login and it had already reset itself to use the new character instead of my old one. I need my old character back. Pls help.
It’s good

This game is good
Nice Game but Costly $$$$
by Tazzyfan on 2020/09/18 15:05
Enjoy the game; has some glitches but overall great to play. Unfortunately the in-App purchases are pricey and you can play without spending any money but you will not reap the benefits of your successes, e.g. Food Truck, Path to Glory, etc. You used to have the option to watch videos instead of spending money on some items, but that is now remove. How unfortunate to an otherwise fun game! Thank you for your response. I think it is important to support the game development by purchasing items within a budget. At the same time, when the rewards for the in game currency, e.g. Rubies are reduced, there is less of an incentive to do so. Based on your response, I’ll consider the monthly PTG purchase and discontinue all others.
Great game but gets worse with every update

I loved this game in the beginning. I would purchase alot of rubies to upgrade my restaurants but it seems that with every update it gets more and more expensive. Also food truck key that you purchase now reduced its rubies as well. To buy the key you used to get 65 rubies, now it is 50, level 15 used to give 10 now it gives 8. That is a loss of 68 rubies if you buy all 4 keys. If you buy all 4 keys you now get a chest that includes 20 rubies, so in all, Yes there is a loss of a total of 48 rubies. Also turbo chef was not ran Monday when it was supposed too.
A mess
by Jamsrq on 2020/09/18 12:48
Have played daily for a really long time it has been a superior game until floating mystery packages were added. Now 90% of the time reward videos either are black screens that crash or there is no way to get back to game and out of reward video after it has played so you have to close app and reward is never rewarded. Play is also choppy. Had new update and still crashing. Very frustrating, hope for a fix. That was yesterday, first thing today 3 reward videos crashed, can’t understand why they don’t fix this, I’ll update daily.
Mytona’s greed has ruined this game.
by Timabobima on 2020/09/18 10:19
Mytona has significantly lowered the amount of rubies given in each food truck, going from 65 down to 50 rubies each food truck, yet still charging the exact same price. So, there are four food trucks a month and they are charging us 20 dollars for 200 rubies when I just bought 260 rubies for 9.99. Provided I don’t get the outfits with a regular ruby purchase, but paying all that extra money for virtual outfits? Mytona also raised the wheel amount per spin, took unlimited assistants from the players and took the rubies from us in the tasty me friends book. When questioning Mytona as to why they did all this to their loyal players, they sent automated responses.
Keep it at 50 not 80
by jayz_mom on 2020/09/18 06:45
I absolutely love this game been playing it for over a year and not too long ago we only had to beat 50 levels before you we were able to move to a new restaurant and now it’s back at 80 can we go back to passing restaurants at 50 and not at 80
Inability for the devs to restore progress
by swagerxs on 2020/09/18 03:24
I for one don’t like the fact that my girlfriend and I have put a lot of time into this game are unable to get are old accounts back because if you uninstall this game you will end up losing access to that account and you’ll have to make a new one yes you could submit in what is called a ticket to have them respond to you later to see if they get it restored but my girlfriend who has played this game a lot longer than I have, has yet to this day gotten a response back if she could get her old account back and she had to make a new one and that is very frustrating because now the same thing has happened to me I would not recommend investing ANY MONEY INTO THIS GAME until this issue is addressed and fixed(if they will even bother to fix it).
Updating game.
by piebaby10 on 2020/09/18 01:26
Why my game is not updating? I have to go to level 80 just to unlock the next restaurant. I’ve updated my app but till have to play to level 80. Please help....
Awesome

Amazing game
Changes made are horrible
by Bookwormhap on 2020/09/17 19:29
I have been playing this game for quite some time and it’s been through a lot of changes. The most recent upgrade though has made it harder to play and much less enjoyable. If you don’t have opportunities to get jewels through game play and the only way to pass levels is to upgrade with jewels it forces the player to make purchases! We are in no position to be spending real money to play a game for entertainment. Pretty soon you will have less and less players!!!!!

Such a good game app to play and addicting
Awesome game but way too expensive to play
by Mygree on 2020/09/17 12:45
You spend way too much buying rubies plying this game...otherwise it’s so fun
Frustrated
by csjtobe on 2020/09/17 05:17
I’ve emailed customer service, and have not got a response. My game went all the way back to the beginning now twice for no reason. Other than that I did love the game... 😟
Hands down the best mobile game Ever

love this game, it got me through quarantine and I still love it.
Great game

I love this game and I encourage you to download today!
Worth It!
by simonnster on 2020/06/13 19:39
I have never taken the time to write a review. But Cooking Diary is AWESOME!! I absolutely LOVE cooking games so I’ve played my fair few. This is definitely one of the best. Sure, maybe when you start off it seems hard to earn enough money or gems to do anything, but that’s the beauty of it- the game doesn’t charge you tickets or energy just to play a few levels. I’ve spent hours and lost track of time playing this game because there are SO many things to do! There is always a new Food Truck, Creighton’s Challenges, Guild Quests, special events to earn extra gems/money, not to mention that now with COVID going on, they issue you a FREE unlimited lives for 4hours, when you log in each different day! It’s a blast. I have not gotten bored yet, and I’ve only gone through 10 of the restaurants. I can’t even say “gone through” because the levels for each restaurant are basically infinite- I’m at 234 on one shop with no end in sight that I can see. Plus on the map I can see there are a TON of new restaurants that I haven’t even made it to yet. I really don’t know how anyone can gripe about this game, it is AMAZING. My one teeny tiny issue though- my wheel of fortune has seemed to disappear?? I can’t find the wheel anywhere. I know it’s still a part of the game because my guild mates keep sending us prizes when they hit the jackpot. But I haven’t been able to spin it because there’s no button!! Anyways that’s my small issue but other than that I love this game.
You can’t hate this game
by random person108 on 2020/02/07 11:35
This game is so enjoyable people will say it’s just a cooking game but when they download it they will be crazed about how awesome the game is the\y will get invested with the shocking storyline and unlike other cooking games other than this 1 has a storyline you can upgrade your restaurant and you don’t just stay in 1 restaurant while the characters in the game has personalities so you get attached to some of the characters and the events are amazing they are in the storyline and makes the game way more fun and the challenges of some of the customers like the forgettable customers the impatient and the 1 that can’t decide on their order make the game more challenging while other cooking games probably have just regular customers and some of them just stay and don’t leave which makes the game way too easy and some cooking games they might have the impatient customer but no more different customers other than them and I didn’t even mention the fact that you can change your character in so many ways is so fun and if you get tired of playing the game and just want to chillax you can join a guild and talk to people online while other cooking games require internet but you just play the cooking game without any chatting and just the game so in total this game is not just a game but it’s a book a chatting place and a cooking game so it’s a 3 in 1 essentially so I give this game 5 stars I would recommend this to everyone
AMAZING game
by Irelyn_Tiscareno on 2020/09/14 00:26
First off, great game. It’s very fun and very time consuming. But I still love it.😊 I also love the avatar editor. The outfits are really cute and fun! Although I do have a few complaints, just for the record, I still love this game. My first complaint is the clothing. I know what your thinking, “You where just raving about how good the outfits where.” Well yes the outfits are still AMAZING but the actual tab for it is locked till after some time. I wish the tab could open sooner. Also once you get the tab to open, you have to WAIT for some sections to be able to use such as the pet section and the shop. Another thing I want to add it the gems. The gems take A LONG time to earn. I wish that you could get gems more often even though they can be earned on daily login streak and wheel of fortune. Still... I just want to get more gems. The last thing I wanna add is something that isn’t necessarily about a glitch or a ad problem (which BTW there are like zero ads) or something like that. It’s actually something the players have been doing quite recently. On the guilds people have been putting “Dating guilds”. I don’t like that because there could be little kids coming across that and PRETEND DATING. That’s only something you would do as an adult. That’s pretty much it but please maybe fix these problems. Thank you 👍
Wow, Insane...
by THEWOLFGURL on 2020/09/08 20:32
I’ve been playing for over a year now and let me just say, this was a lucky find. From the very beginning I knew this was going to be my favorite game. So let’s get straight to it. There is a diamond balance, but honestly, the daily gems and quests you can complete make it nearly impossible to NOT have any gems. I wouldn’t see any reason why people would complain about not getting enough, when really there is a good amount you can gain. I tested it and gained 40 diamonds within 3-4 days. You could probably get more in that period of time. Also the amount of money that you need to play this game is absolutely none. I have gone through almost 11 restaurants without paying a cent. It just takes patience and hard work to save up diamonds to upgrade. Also you can buy certain rare clothing items but that’s entirely your choice. The harder the levels, the more diamonds you’ll need to improve your kitchen, which is what is necessary to complete the game. So be sure to spend them wisely! Overall I would say this is a FANTASTIC creation! The makers of this are geniuses, and they really do deserve shout outs for this incredible mobile game. I can play this all day if I wanted, but be careful with spending diamonds for clothing items (you’ll regret using them for that). Thank you for reading this review! Hopefully this review will help you decide whether or not to get this game. :) Enjoy your day!
Rubies
by blackberrysyrup on 2019/07/06 01:58
This game is very enjoyable and I got addicted fast. Like many other games you have a usual coin currency and then a special ruby currency. You need rubies to upgrade ingredients and appliances which isn’t a problem at first because they are relatively easy to come by when you first start. Now it’s still possible to get rubies but it takes a lot of time (unless you’re willing to throw some money at the game) and the amount of rubies rewarded doesn’t feel worth the task given for the amount of time and levels you’d have to play to get them (like serving 1150 plates of one dish for 5 rubies). Also I don’t understand why the coin currency changed when you make it to the next map. Now I’m not using the original coins for anything but still collecting revenue from those restaurants. I suggest an option to be able to exchange coins for rubies, that way the coins don’t go to waste as I’m not using the ones from the first map and I’ve already gotten more than enough in the second one. The only thing I’m falling short on in this game is rubies which is frustrating when you need them for all of the upgrades, especially when the next restaurant requires more coins and rubies for upgrades. The amount of coins you earn increases but the rubies adversely become harder to obtain. At the least I would like if the ruby rewards were higher and/or the ruby requirements for upgrades were lowered.
Gems too difficult to come by
by ShainaME on 2020/05/21 11:16
The game play is quick paced and really fun! ... at first. After about 3 or 4 restaurants in you start getting stuck because in a set time you have to serve x customers or make x amount of money. But to do that you need faster machines and more expensive ingredients... and how do you get those? With gems! But how do you get gems? Well, you can get 1 on day 4 of constant gameplay and 2 on day 5. You can watch an add twice a day and get 1 gen per add. You can spin a wheel for free once a day (I’ve gotten 2 gems this way maybe once a week, it’s hit or miss) and occasionally there’s special events where you can earn gems (1-3 gems every 5-10 levels complete). You also get a few gems when you get through episodes but you can only do that by whining levels. So when you’re stuck there’s 2 options. 1: wait. Every day you get a few gems. Save up to get that 16 gem tray or 12 gem oven upgrade. Might take you a few weeks of not playing and just clicking. Or 2: pay up. For a dollar you can get 100 gems.. sometimes. It’s one of those special offers that keep popping up. Or for $4.99 you can get a golden ticket and earn better prizes (gems and outfits) when you play events in the food truck. Gems should be a part of level prizes same as coins. Maybe to a less extent because I get it... ads aren’t enough, the game maker wants us to pay up. But it literally halts game play for me and that’s not ok. Do better Food Diary!
Actually Great
by macaronifriend on 2020/01/30 16:16
I really don’t review games nor do I enjoy modern mobile games because of the pushy capitalism that comes with them, the ads have taken truly over. HOWEVER - this game is entirely different. You CAN play this game pleasantly and still have so much to do without pestering ads. You CAN enjoy this game because of the quality of the game mechanics and there is just, like I said, so many things to do. Unlike most games, there is something for everyone here. I loved the integration of the food truck, different cuisines and restaurants, and most importantly GUILDS!! They’ve done it right, when many mobile games miss the mark on these features. This game stands out. It all makes Cooking Diary interesting and fun while remaining wholesome and doesn’t show children or adults horrible despicable ads or themes within the game (other than the witch in the newest update which I am not a fan of). It really is impressive and I give my thanks to the developers for taking their time to make what is, in my opinion, one of the best mobile games to date. Diner Dash can’t stand a chance next to Cooking Diary. And I didn’t even mention that the storyline feature in this game is surprisingly awesome, it’s actually cute and engaging and gives your character life. God Bless the developers and all who play this game in Jesus name. Thank you for bringing quality and wholesome entertainment to the App Store!
Amazing game :)
by genericpanic on 2020/07/27 15:39
This game is really fun! I’ve never been one to play cooking games for a long time, but I’ve already spent hours playing this game and it’s still enjoyable. I like how there are several things happening in addition to the main story: big events, small events, guild quests etc. I also like that you can add friends without having to necessarily go through Facebook. I really only have one major issue: the rubies are hard to get. I understand that it’s part of the challenge of collecting the rubies, but it’s at a point where there’s a lot of work just to get a couple of gems (unless I want to pay real money to buy gems). All the upgrades require gems to purchase in addition to coins. Coins I have no problem collecting, but the currency collecting is just disproportionate. I would LOVE if there was a way to trade in coins for rubies! This would definitely help those who collect a lot of coins but are unable to do anything with them because you need coins AND rubies to upgrade. Or, another suggestion would be to make the upgrades cost more coins but less gems. All that being said, I’m still able to enjoy this game, and while getting the rubies is a slow process, so far it hasn’t been too terrible. Oh and I would love if there were more clothing options that can be purchased with the banknotes. I really like this game! Thank you :)
This game is amazing for chronic pain!
by Mortishya on 2020/04/09 22:26
I have a chronic degenerative disease called CIDP. I also have numerous other conditions. Between all of these, I am in bed most of the time and in severe to extreme pain. This game has enough going on that I am able to dive in and put all my focus on it, removing my focus from my pain. Even though I can’t afford to put much money into the developers, I have been purchasing little extras when I can. I really just want to support this game’s development team because of how amazing this game is! The only negative for me is that the lives system makes it really hard for long play sessions, once your higher level. I have been playing this game a little over a week, I think, and have gotten my level into the 50s (in the 3rd cafe, the cinecafe I think it’s called). In the beginning you can basically play forever because of either lots of storyline and tutorial type things that take a bit to complete or items/extensions to your lives. Now that I am in the level 50s, the extensions/items are drastically more rare (you can buy these items with real money if you can afford to) and you are having to play multiple difficult levels to get to the amazing and funny storyline (which at this level is much shorter). So, to sum up, THIS IS AN AMAZING GAME🥰😘💜🤩🥰! I just wish I could afford longer play sessions😞....
BEST COOKING APP EVER!! 😍😍😍😍
by Saaaaaaaaamy on 2020/01/31 00:36
So I never heard of this game until SSSniperwolf sponsored this game she is a YouTuber. So I downloaded it and OMG I LOVE IT 🥰 best cooking game I have ever had!! I have downloaded many cooking games but they never seem to interest me but this one really takes the cake! I LOVE the story that goes along with it it really makes the game more fun and interesting I have never seen a cooking game with a story line and well that’s just the beauty of it. And I also LOVE how you have your own characters! I love it how you can be creative in your own way to make your own restaurants and your own character! I played many cooking games where the chef is way too plain and you would love to give it a makeover but you can’t. Just two flaws with the game the first one is that it HEAVILY tells you on your screen “Do you want to buy 100 rubies” all the time! It’s super annoying then when you try to click out it says “ Do you want to miss this special offer?” I know it’s a free game and all but come on. And the other thing is that in my opinion there should be more free clothes I’m being honest right now there is only one free outfit ONE! Can you at least put a little bit more? But other than that I think this is THE BEST COOKING GAME IN HISTORY IF NOT I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS! 😍😍😍😍 ❤️💜💞💝💓💗💖💘💕💙💚❣️💛 😅
Hours of Addicting Fun
by Andreanna Allyn on 2020/03/28 10:19
This game is great. The storylines are fun, the animation is bright and updates frequently for seasons and holidays. I spend hours serving up food to patrons and developing my restaurants. I would give 5 stars, but there are just a few things that irritate me enough to stay at 4. The need for gems increases as your levels increase. The ability to win enough to fully upgrade your restaurants are few and far between. Additionally, there are ads you can watch to augment your restaurant develop times as you upgrade, which made it easier, faster and funnier to quickly improve your cooking speeds and earning potential; however one you get to a certain level that ends and you are forced to wait up to 8 hours for upgrades which limits what you can do in your newest restaurant. Gems are expensive and I have been impulsive and spent money to more quickly and efficiently update my stuff, but if you’re patient you can get by with the free gems earned during game play. I love the variety of games within the game. There are team challenges, individual challenges and all kinds of mini games that keep things exciting. This is a great game. I wish gems weren’t so expensive and difficult to get and I wish I still had ads to help push the game along but these negatives aren’t enough to keep me from playing every day. It’s fun, relaxing and you’ll enjoy playing it.
Super addicting and fun for a few weeks...then just frustrating and $$ hungry
by mlknowles11 on 2020/04/29 05:12
I was so excited when I found this game. I was having so much fun playing it for the first few weeks. The animation is super cute, I love customizing the restaurants, and it’s satisfying to beat the levels. I was fine spending a few dollars on it because I was having fun, but as I advanced in the game, it became clear that I would have to spend a LOT more money to make progress. I realized this when they changed currency in the next district - I now have over 100,000 coins that are useless. You should at least be able to spend these old coins in the wheel of fortune to have a chance to get gems. To get the needed gems without spending real cash, you’d have to spend HOURS completing the same levels you’ve already played 100 times to get the measly 10 gems from a completed challenge - that’ll get you *one* upgrade in the more advanced restaurants (if that). Serve 1000 croissants? Guess I’ll have to play the same old bakery 200 times while earning useless coins. So annoying. Also, the story is pointless. They bring in all these random characters and there’s no real storyline and it doesn’t even relate to your journey as a chef, so why have it? Such lazy writing. And the ads to spend money in the game are CONSTANT. I’ve reached my limit with this game. No way am I going to spend real money on it again - way too repetitive and no incentive to finish the story.
Ridiculous ruby amounts
by Silvermist16 on 2019/11/23 23:16
I love this game. It’s very addicting but they are many setbacks and even changes that are not ideal. Rubies are getting harder to come by! We get 2 rubies every so often in the truck levels, but a suggestion is to maybe allow 1 ruby every truck level instead. They are also winnable after finishing a story (20 rubies), but we need those rubies to be able to finish the story. We can also win them in the achievements but having to serve, for example, 2400 snacks in the Particles of Taste restaurant is ridiculous for only 5 rubies. This should at least be worth 10 or 15. I get it sometimes since snacks and drinks can be served more often than the main dishes, but that is a lot for less rubies. And the currency differences are a little ridiculous too. Since we get to a point where we’re not updating restaurants in a city anymore, what’s the point of still having free coins regenerate every 4 hours. It’s really a waste and would be more useful to be able to trade in for rubies. Like I have almost 900,000 coins in one city and haven’t really used them. One last thing is the update on certain updates in restaurants where, for example, we need 5 rubies to get a certain wall design or curtain design now. We already need too many rubies for restaurant updates and this is just too much. It’s not reasonable. I understand needing to up some stuff up for players to buy in-app purchases in order to make money from this app, but there’s a better way about it.
Impossible to play after awhile without spending significant money
by Kad2274 on 2019/10/27 05:53
This was a great game until I beat maybe 4-5 restaurants. The cost of upgrades keeps getting more and more expensive and it seems like there are less rubies to be earned. I wouldn’t mind spending a little money every now and then but $1 for 10 rubies! It won’t even buy you one upgrade you need at the Golden Dragon restaurant I am at now!! It’s so frustrating. And also, I used to be able to watch videos to speed up delivery of upgrades or be able to speed up asking for help from my guild and now it asks me for a ridiculous amount of rubies. I thought this game was maybe going to be different since the first few restaurants seemed fair and reasonable. But it’s just like every other game. The daily reward is only 2 rubies! And then spinning the wheel almost always gets me 5 measly tickets, sometimes 1-2 rubies. It’s very frustrating. And why did the currencies change? Now I have so many useless coins. What’s the point to keep accumulating them. I’m going to play until I really get stuck (which I imagine will happen soon when it would probably take me 2 weeks to save up for one upgrade which would only help for a few levels. It’s incredibly frustrating when you should beat a level because you serve every customer, have no angry customers, don’t burn or throw out even one dish, and still fail because you don’t have the rubies to upgrade the cost of ingredients.
Fun game, but you take the good with the bad
by Thesmashlife on 2020/01/21 20:42
This is my “go to” game. I love the different themes and the variety of challenges including daily challenges, long term achievements, and healthy competition against other players- especially when you join or create a team. I give 5 stars for those reasons. The biggest hurdle is to acquire rubies (used for upgrades)... So save them while you can. I don't suggest using rubies to “speed up” upgrades, as it wastes rubies you could use in the future. I use the waiting time to complete other challenges/ achievements. As much as I love this game, I will say I’ve slowed down In playing. With the current update, they started charging rubies for restaurant decorations along with doubling the “paper money” price tags on decorations. This was a massive disappointment. I used to use the in game “paper money” to upgrade my restaurant decor and in turn, receive ruby rewards for higher prestige. This was key in consistently progressing through the game and earning those diamonds. But, hey the developers need to make money.. I guess they caught on. It was fun while it lasted. All in all very entertaining game. I do give a thumbs up in hopes that they don’t make any more money grabbing upgrades. Id rather spend on extras like outfits.
This game is awesome but needs a few changes.
by Markb082 on 2019/12/04 19:16
I absolutely love this game. By far the best cooking app I’ve played and it’s very addicting. I’ve been playing this game for about 6 months maybe and it’s still very enjoyable. I have paid like 8 bucks which I normally don’t pay for games but I wanted to get more gems and a cute Halloween outfit so I did. To anyone reading this make sure before you go into a new district spin the wheel and get rid of your coins because I have so many unused coins from the first few districts. I would suggest to the developers to find a use for the coins because I’m still able to collect but can’t do anything with them. Now that I’m up there in levels it makes it harder to upgrade my restaurant. You can go back and do certain tasks to get gems but it takes a while and sometimes I get stuck cause I don’t upgrade the restaurants all the way. I don’t use my bank notes for anything but decor and now you have to use gems to upgrade the decor that doesn’t seem fair. Also with the new update there is no time in between quests and it’s honestly too much. I usually play everyday for about an hour or more but some days I don’t have time to play and it makes it hard to contribute to quests. With the new update it won’t download. Not sure if this happening to everyone or just me.
Great time management game
by Ashley K. T. on 2020/05/28 09:39
I love this game. If you like fun time management games, then you’ll love this one. I played burger shop before and would have to say this game is better. You get to be in a team and compete, there are also competitions for individuals, you get to socialize in the chats, and you get to level up through the restaurants. There are strategic ways to get free gems. So you don’t necessarily have to spend money on it unless you want to progress faster. I also love the guild quest. I love the new feature of being able to speed up help requests for free. Great job devs. Can you do this an unlimited amount of times? If so, I’ll watch as many ads as you need me to because it is very helpful. I really like that you can progress within the game without having to break your bank account. You can spend money on it without going broke in the process if that’s your style of play. I also appreciate that there are so many levels and restaurants. It’s fantastic. One suggestion I have is a built in translator. In my guild, there are a variety of languages spoken. I would like it if this can be automatically translated to the language I’m using within the game so that I can communicate better with my teammates.
Great game but...
by allieplummer on 2018/11/02 15:23
I absolutely love this game. I quickly got addicted and couldn’t stop playing it. The graphics are amazing and the storyline is interesting. One problem I have with the game is how impossible the levels get. I understand the need to make them harder as you move up, but harder shouldn’t equal impossible. In one of my restaurants, I tried to beat one of the levels and failed about 3 times. I then got help from my guild and even with the help and the extra tips I still failed. Then I made every possible upgrade to my restaurant (stoves, ingredients, drinks, etc.) and I tried again and I still can’t beat the level. The game raised the coin objective I needed to beat the level but decreased the amount of customers I would get so I’m always like 20 coins short from what I need. It’s so frustrating and makes me want to quit and delete the app. The second problem I have is the need for gems to upgrade everything. They’re already super hard to come by in large quantities unless you by them. When you do get them, it’s like you immediately have to spend them again. You should only need coins for upgrades, and if it’s a higher level one maybe it could require one gem but not eight. Other than these two issues this game is really great and I would start recommending it more if they somewhat fixed these two problems.
Best game but a tiny complaint
by Reviewing your app. on 2020/01/11 00:57
Ok to be straight, I got addicted fast as heck, and I love this game, but the prices are a little high. Seriously though, 2.99 for just a kitty bank!? I can buy like, three songs on iTunes for that price. And these special offers (take the kitty bank for example because it’s going on right now but will end like in 2 hrs) barely last that long. I went on a Vacation with my family for two weeks and when i got this game, the “kitty-bank” had like maybe 5 days left at the time. Yeah I know you can’t run these things forever and yeah you wanna make more money with the offers but the southern key was 9 bucks like seriously, I bought myself an entire meal with that money. (10 bucks whatever it’s a one dollar difference) Maybe it doesn’t sound like a huge deal but I had 2.77 left in my iTunes and I hadn’t found any iTunes cards in stores while I was on VC. So I couldn’t buy the kitty bank or the southern key. I’m getting on my flight back to the US soon but all the special deals will end before I arrive and get some iTunes cards. Please if you read this please re-enter the kitty bank for just a month or two. Thanks for making a great game though, congrats developers!!
Fun but not free
by Lakita Lover on 2020/09/25 20:17
This game is lots of fun, but as others have said, it is not possible to progress past a certain point without purchasing rubies. I usually wait until the game offers the occasional sale of 100 rubies for $2, which is really what they should cost all the time considering how many are needed to make the later restaurants playable. The art and gameplay are good and the new pets are a cute feature. Aside from pricing, the only major thing I would change is the way players travel between restaurants. Once you have several pages worth of restaurants it is really annoying to have to scroll across the map and wait through multiple loading screens to get to the restaurants from the beginning of the game. It would be much better if there were a button on every screen that opened a menu of all the restaurants a player has unlocked. Then players could scroll through a list and teleport directly to any restaurant they want to play in. It would also be great if there were options for spending various coin types once players have completed an area. Maybe add a shop or a wheel for each section of the game, so when players go back to old restaurants to earn achievements they don't end up with hundreds of thousands of coins that they can't spend on anything.
Rude Customer/Rubies
by QuitaB2012 on 2020/01/09 18:38
I love this game! The a guild leader and we have fun! Come to Holy Pepperoni if you’re looking for an active guild home! I want to complain about the white privileged, rude, impatient customer that makes the game unnecessarily uncomfortable. He comes with an attitude because he’s in a rush and thinks he should be served first! That’s so unfair. I work in food irl and I do have some of those customers but I wish to escape that rude and uncomfortable part of real life. I do not wish to have it in a game as well. He has the power to ruin an entire game or cause your turbo chef session to end when he’s ordering the whole restaurant with 2 hearts. That’s ludacris! This should be dealt with, at least give him 3 hearts or take him and his attitude all out together. Rubies. A necessity. It’s so hard to get them or at least get enough for an upgrade. Not everyone has money to spend to buy rubies so we’re stuck on levels that will require an upgraded item to pass the level. If we can obtain more rubies in the daily spin or when we pass food truck levels, it would be so much better. Other than that, the game is awesome and I recommend it to everyone!! Download it and join Holy Pepperoni and be active!
BEWARE: Super Addictive!!
by MuzicBabie on 2019/08/31 23:28
I absolutely love this game. I’m not the type to get addicted to games but since I’ve started this one, I have been completely engrossed. Now the only downfall is the rubies, and the time it takes to be able to request assistance especially when you have a guild quest that you need assistance to complete. I have spent so much money on buying rubies at some point during the game I think it would suffice to be able to trade old coins from old towns to rubies for new towns, as many rubies as it takes to upgrade items they will run out quick and you’ll need to still buy more so it’s not completely unreasonable. The old levels are not really played and the money won’t be needed because the items are all upgraded so it’s coins for no reason that I can’t use on any other level across the map. Think about it. Plus it would keep people playing more because they won’t lose levels for not having rubies to be able to upgrade which means they will be more apt to purchasing small amounts of rubies more often to be able to upgrade items. But besides that the game is absolutely amazing and you guys did an awesome job!!
Let’s talk about gems.. AGAIN.
by Kiminiko on 2019/09/26 01:14
I recently downloaded the game and got super hooked and gave the game a rating 4/5 stars... Today, I noticed certain things that ticked me off a bit. 1. When you pay to spin the wheel, the deals should become better. You have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME with the ONE gem option *facepalm* 1 gem literally does nothing! It makes me not want to invest in spinning the wheel. 2. More options to win gems!! Even if it’s one or two gems every level or every two levels. It’ll keep people actually wanting to play. 3. Since you guys wanna charge for gems then you might as well do good deals... honestly, $3 for only 60 gems!? And $1 for only 10 gems!? That’s ridiculous! If I see a good deal I’ll take it and invest more in the game but all you guys have are lame deals where clearly you get less for your dollar. At least $1 for 40-50 gems and you’ll be getting a payment from me everyday. And last but not least, you guys aren’t listening/reading. You can tell in almost every review on this game that everyone has something to say about the gems and clearly that problem has not been solved. I understand game developers need money too, but think about the outcomes in the LONG run. Think about your loyal players that will invest more if you make better deals. The game is SO GOOD but there’s always room for improvement. Work with us, don’t let us down!
Cooking Diary
by Spalmer0105 on 2018/10/11 19:56
Great game! I love how all the customers and all the characters have their own unique flawless detailed looks! Fancy hair, nice outfits, cool accessories. BUT there is one MAJOR flaw though. They don’t look realistic at all to me. Oh actually there is another major flaw. It skips sometimes. All I want to do is play an awesome cooking game that’s completely different from all the rest but when it skips like that I can’t very well do that. So those two things should be fixed. Thanks! Oh and I’d suggest more main characters. There are only like two. My character/cooker and her cooking grandpa. But I LOVE the name of the town/city! Which is tasty hills. It’s a really cute name and the game is SUPER kid friendly!!!!!!👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Thanks for making it kid friendly. Hahah AND adult friendly hahah! Obviously!! Well, love the game. Could be more products in the restaurant though. Just a suggestion.🙂🙂. Well... I don’t think there’s much more to say!! I’ve already done a lot anyway soooo. Yeah hehe. Well I hope u have a wonderful day cooking diary creators. Bye bye! I’m sure I’ll be writing more reviews to you and your game and your company soon. That will probably be when I see something else to comment on. Hehe. Well have a great great great great great day!
Fun but Pricey - Impossible to Obtain Gems!
by Just a Poor College Kid on 2020/04/14 19:16
This game is extremely fun to play and I’ve been obsessed the past couple of days. HOWEVER, the ability to obtain gems is EXTREMELY difficult. The game encourages you to purchase gems, however the gems are overpriced and frustrating, because there really is no other way to obtain gems easily. In order to obtain gems for free you have to complete quests which essentially make you replay a level hundreds of times in order to obtain just one or two gems. Upgrading your kitchen fully requires hundreds of gems. It would be a lot more enjoyable to play if things didn’t require HUNDREDS of gems in order to progress in the game; I often have to stop playing solely because I don’t have gems and cannot get anymore until the next day with the daily quests. Even after waiting a day, it is difficult to gain enough gems to upgrade enough of your kitchen to progress to the next stage. I’ve purchased some gems before, but since upgrading requires so many gems, the gems were used in SECONDS. I would honestly NOT recommend this game unless you have money you’re willing to spend. This is especially because once you get sucked into the game, you end up getting extremely frustrated since it’s so impossible to get gems.
Cool game but gems is an issue
by LeanaF212 on 2018/09/14 18:48
When I first started playing this game, I really enjoyed it and the storyline is interesting and great too. However the only thing that is a bummer and I know I am not the only one who has said this, but it’s the fact that to upgrade the kitchen not only do you need to use the coins you have, you also need to use the gems too. This I find is a bit difficult because it’s not as easy to gain gems as it is to gain coins. So maybe my suggestion to keep this game going and make it better is hopefully just have the coins themselves be the only thing needed to upgrade the kitchen so it will make it easier and have the gems used for other special things or upgrades. Especially when the levels increase and get harder to beat and you need to upgrade the kitchen and you don’t have enough gems, you then have to be forced to pay for them and if you still don’t have enough gems after you do, where you have to spend another 99 cents for example is getting to just be pointless and not worth it. There are other ways to use gems but just not constantly along with coins to upgrade kitchen items. I hope you creators can reconsider and make it better and easier for us the gamers who love to play this game because it is pretty good!
Cooking diary is an amazingly awesome game but...
by artsandcraftsqueen on 2020/08/10 14:34
I think cooking diary via an awesome game but there is a few things I would like to fix. First the ads for the game are nothing like the actual game the first time I got the game I thought you could level up yourself that’s what it showed me when I saw the add for it. The next ad I saw for showed a a moving belt like the one at the grocery store and had to take the stuff of the belt and give it to the people in the game you have to actually cook the food not get it off a belt. Please give us ads that actually represents the game.😕😕 The next thing is I never ever run out of time when I play the game and I have never burnt stuff but I never get and any of that blue money that you get like come on.😒😒 You can use that blue money to get new clothes and shoes and stuff like that i have been playing for 6 months and I still have not gotten any new clothes or anything. I am not a fashionista and I don’t need to get any new clothes but still make it more fun for everybody else. Thank you so much for reading I feel like my voice should be heard so if you read this you are making my dream come true but I have a long time to achieve that because I am a kid but still thank you 😊
Addictive But The Coin Issue Is Annoying
by Megumi6 on 2020/01/11 10:45
I really enjoy this game and am impressed with the many features Mytona has put into this to make it an immersive game. I’m not finding the gems to be too hard to come by as I get quite a few from achieving ranks in restaurants or finishing episodes and achievements or spinning the wheel. I also took advantage of newcomer deals to buy gems at a steep discount, something I normally wouldn’t do. Gems are also available in reasonable package deals if so desired. Gameplay is engaging and challenging but so far not so challenging that I feel discouraged. My chief irritant with this game is the same as other players: I have a ton of wasted coins in the first district that I can’t use for anything, not even the wheel of fortune. I wish I had read reviews beforehand so I knew to use the wheel before opening the second district. It also seems unfair that daily quests send you back into places where you earn revenue that you can’t use. I’d at least like to be able to spin the wheel to earn banknotes and power ups or maybe be able to use the coins to buy pet supplies or clothing. I sincerely hope Mytona listens to the feedback of the players on this issue as it is quite frustrating.
Impressive
by papi kota on 2020/02/22 08:38
Honestly the best free cooking app on the App Store currently. Interesting storyline, lovable characters, and very fun gameplay. The game doesn’t treat you like you’re an idiot, and gives you some pretty challenging levels. I feel like the ruby and coins distribution are fair with the competitions, achievement, and high scores you can rank in. However, with each new restaurant (another perk, multiple restaurants) things get more expensive, and you really start having to grind for coins. I wish that was scaled better along with the higher ruby costs, but overall it’s a lovely game. I will admit that I’ve spent money on this app for extra rubies, but that’s because I’m impatient. If the creators polished the game and made it a stand alone with even better in-depth game play, I would absolutely buy it outright full price. It reminds me of the original Cakemania games that I grew up with. I’m definitely happy with this game and supporting it, and really excited to see what other apps they’ll put on the market in the future. I truly wish I could just pay a standard set price for the full game honestly because I feel like with some tweaking it’s good enough to justify it.
limited time game mode bug?
by EmmaTheSrawberry on 2019/07/06 23:16
I love this game and have opened quite a few restaurants already. I love the upgrades, new restaurants that have their own unique items and foods, and outfits for your character. Some people complain about how hard the levels are, but they either need to upgrade their items or just get better at the game. 😂 However, when playing the limited time mode (not sure what it’s name is - the most recent one where you need the northern key to unlock more items as you move up the “road”) I can’t add the white cream sauce on top of my dishes. This makes it unplayable because I cannot serve half of my customers. I click on it and nothing happens and when I try to serve it, it won’t let me no matter how many times I click on the sauce bottles. Not sure if this is my fault or if its my phone or the game. I personally think it’s just a bug because I know when I play normal games that sometimes when I press something I have to click it a few times before my character walks over there. Now I have no more ways to earn dollars. Hope this can be fixed. Thanks! EDIT: The LTM is called “Pop Culture” or something.
First I want to say that I love cooking diary I am addicted to this game.
by shorycake on 2019/08/25 11:36
I have spent tons of money on in app purchases. I have one issue so frustrating to me, I understand u get offers just pop up randomly in the game to purchase rubies coins, boosters etc I have never received an offer of 99 cents for 100 rubies,so I had my administrator of my guild send me a photo of the offer. I understand that people don’t buy a lot get this offer all the time. But those of us who make regular purchases never in 6 months ever have gotten this offer. I sent my concern to your support center then I was told there was nothing they can do they have no control over the game pop up purchases. I also have an issue with the restaurant Dessert Fair, this restaurant takes a minimum of 2, seconds to get first customer and then that level runs extremely slow. Example I played a level that required money and make 12 let’s just say happy, the game clock didn’t run down to o.oo it stopped with the last plate in my hand giving to customer clock stopped at 0.11 seconds. But over all I am addicted to CD I LOVE THIS GAME the graphic the story line but we want to remove the coins from old islands they are useless or can we figure out some way to use all of our coins trade for rubies or blue notes or dog supplies so many can be done in one day. Please consider making these changes. Happy gaming everyone!!!
Addictive?
by camwonderland on 2019/03/05 22:55
I really enjoyed this game when I first got it. I beat the first restaurant level quickly, but when I upgraded to the bakery the levels started to become harder. One level was filled with all of the customers that forget their order as soon as they stated it, which was near impossible. I thought the bakery restaurant level would be similar to the diner one, due customers being able to customize everything, however, I was wrong. It is very much indeed similar, but it is HARDER. Example: How am I supposed to cook three cakes with two ovens, one triangle cake with chocolate icing and blueberries, one star cake with strawberry icing ONLY, and one cake with who knows what? And on top of that, dealing with what drink they would like, having to reset the drink machine, what snacks they would like as well, and making sure that they aren’t getting too impatient? One time I used all of the candies for just one level! I can’t even complete levels anymore without having the urge to close down the app! I was really excited to keep going along with this game until I made it to the last restaurant, but due to how impossible the levels are getting I might not be able to. I love the storylines/plot, how we can create our own character, and much more, but please make the levels a little bit easier so I can truly enjoy this amazing app!
Fun To Play
by Bruce Fanatic on 2020/04/21 13:38
I really love this game it is addicting to play and have been playing it for a long time. I love how you can see the action of the characters in the kitchen as you play along. The colors are vibrant and it really makes me happy overall and it helps to pass the time especially during this quarantine period. I love the food truck levels it gives me a fun rush. Please note: A few issues I have noticed is that there should be an option to purchase the pets in the store as well as playing videos to get gems. With this recent update this disappeared. It seems logical that the more you allow us players to purchase items, the more profits you could ring in. Some games offer you a chance to play for the progress and if you notice your not getting the item in time they offer you a chance to purchase. I was bummed I couldn’t get the rabbit because the progress seemed slow due to the changes in the update it became a bit lore challenging and because of the financial issues currently going on. I hope you will reconsider the purchase options. Other than that I definitely recommend this game.
GETS WORSE WITH EACH UPDATE
by anonmember on 2020/03/12 06:41
Look, I don’t mind spending money on this game. It’s the only one I play on mobile and it brings me joy, so why not? (Trust me, I’ve spent way too much money on this game).And, to be fair, developers have to earn an income too. That being said, this game gets worse with each update. Developers think we’re not smart enough to realize what is happening. First, gems started to be used on everything — on decor upgrades and clothes — when it used to be on just kitchen upgrades. Blue bucks have become near obsolete because you can’t buy clothes with them anymore so they just accumulate. Furthermore, now the developers want to decrease the amount of gems we get from Guild Quests? You must be joking. They have literally decreased the amount -10 gems in rewards. I used to earn 20-25 gems each Guild Quest and now earn just half of that. Even when you express frustration to support, they respond with the same message (as I’ll most likely receive in response to this). Everyone hates these updates but MyTona doesn’t care at this point. Plus, it’ll keep getting worse. Guaranteed. I was tempted to make a purchase again on one of their offers but I don’t want to support a terrible business model. To be honest, I might let go of the game soon. So disappointing as I did love the Cooking Diary.
BEST restaurant time-management game, I’m obsessed!
by kattlelol on 2020/04/30 02:54
I’ve honestly never in my life written an app review before, even for things I use all the time and love, but I have to write one for this game. I’ve tried quite a lot of mobile time-management games, especially in the restaurant category, and this one is the best one I’ve come across. I’ve stopped playing the other ones I’ve downloaded, including one I used to play allll the time and have spent like $40 on. KUDOS to the team that put this together because I can tell it took a LOT of work, between the gameplay design and the graphics and the storyline… I tend to be stingy with in-app purchases but had no problem buying one $5 pack for this game, less because I wanted the items and more because I just wanted to support the developers! I’m not even annoyed at the ads in the game (which you can choose to watch to get more rewards - they’re not forced upon you) because I just want this game to continue developing more restaurants and storylines! There’s often new events popping up so that you can never really get bored of it. As you can tell I’m obsessed!
My first ever app review!
by jacqipro on 2020/03/08 13:48
Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever left a review for an app before, but I just enjoy this game so much I felt really inclined to write one! It’s the best cooking and time-management game I’ve ever played by far and there is so much that goes into it; you always have something to do, a level to unlock, a restaurant to upgrade, a guild quest to win, etc etc...and I especially like that while yes, there are in-game purchases, you don’t have to spend money to get to enjoy and play the game! You can earn gems/coins in multiple ways so you aren’t always stuck waiting hours between upgrades. I digress. When I discovered this game, I originally had gone into the app store bored and just trying to find some new game to pass the time on, next thing I know I’m hooked lol I play it everyday. Oh also I wanted to add that their support team, in my experience, has been fantastic. They’re quick to respond and have solved all of my past questions/issues (e.g., quickly helping reconnect my account when I thought I’d lost it). Anyway, TL;DR - I love this app. It’s genuinely enjoyable and easy to get hooked :)
GREAT game, but EXPENSIVE
by T'ichelle on 2020/05/20 22:47
This is a great game! I don’t typically find games that I enjoy playing, but once I started this game I couldn’t stop! The only down fall is eventually you get to the point where you are only accumulating 2-3 gems/rubies at a time and it is very far in between. The further you are through the game the more gems/rubies it requires to upgrade your kitchen equipment. For example, I might not be able to pass a level until I can collect enough gems/rubies to upgrade a part of the kitchen which in turn makes me score higher to pass the level. If you cannot collect the gems/rubies through the game play itself you are left with the only option of purchasing them with actual, real money. $2.99 a pop, which isn’t TERRIBLE but isn’t super cheap either giving you would have to purchase this AT LEAST once a week to continue moving forward in the game. I’m on the very last restaurant of the “second town” and I cannot go any further in the game without purchasing rubies through iTunes. I’m DONE spending money on this game. Great game, but TOO expensive to play. The gems/rubies should not be so hard to earn through the game play.
Very Addicting
by MusicKei on 2020/05/19 06:18
Normally I get bored with games after awhile, especially cooking games. But this game had me hooked from the start. You can own more than one restaurant and it’s very refreshing, because after a while I tend to switch to another restaurant to keep me occupied. They don’t shove ads in your face constantly, you only watch them if you want to speed up your deliveries or add decorations without spending rubies or bucks. And I love the storyline; it keeps you on your toes. The only problem is what everyone is saying about the rubies. The further you progress, the harder they are to come by and some tasks you can complete for rubies aren’t really worth the trouble. You can’t upgrade your restaurants without them. If you don’t mind spending money every now and then to buy rubies, then you’re good to go. Otherwise, you just have to be extremely patient. ETA: The amount of diamonds to continue a level that you’ve lost should start off with a minimum of 5 then gradually increase if you keep losing. It’s annoying when I accidentally spend 20 diamonds on a level I could’ve easily beaten after a few more tries. Diamonds aren’t cheap.
Game Losing Appeal
by oopblahh on 2019/06/02 03:08
Don’t get me wrong, I love the game and it’s a great way to spend spare time. Love the challenge of it. But, you know what I’m about to say too, the gems. When you first start the game off, gems are easy to come by. Mostly because you level up fast and if you’re in a active guild you get the prizes, all that jazz. You don’t have a need to waste money and that’s great. But by the time you get to the second map, everything basically revolves around gems and they are not possible to come by to upgrade unless you spend money. The ‘discounts’ aren’t even discounts to me anymore because of it. I have over a 100k coins just sitting there because they're not being used for anything. I don’t mind using gems to upgrade but I think it should either be reduced or getting said gems should be easier. It used to be that the food trucks helped, now you have to pay money to actually get good stuff. Totally understand that the app needs to make money, but the appeal of this game at first was that I didn’t need to throw money at it to have tons of fun. Now, that appeal is dying.
I’m obsessed ❤️❤️❤️😍😍💕💕💕💕
by zody1o1 on 2020/03/24 23:00
Ive tried to find a game like this but i never can. But when i saw the reviews that were way better then the other games I’ve tried i was like ok it seems like a good game so ill try it i went to sleep at 6 in the morning planning this game and i was not tired i got this game yesterday and right now i have 2 restaurants open about to have 3 and that’s so cool because with other games it only gives you 1 restaurant but this one you one you just keep on playing and rearming award then when you finish with restaurant you go to the next there’s a shop and everything people coming in and taking pictures of the food and rating how good it is. No matter what other people say about the restaurant they keep it official and honestly if you don’t want to be obsessed with a game [you will want to do it with this game if you don’t get this game you are missing out] then that’s on you. When i first opened the game i thought this was going to be a stressful game but it’s not for me personally It calmes me. PS YOU CANT HATE THIS GAME EVEN IF YOIU TRY TO JUST TRY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻
Gems gems gems
by Symmie on 2019/03/15 23:29
As many other reviewers said this game is fantastic other than the gems. I didn’t find it too bad and was able to get all the way to the top level released if I was patient and worked towards some of the achievements. However, I’m frustrated with the update and the pop ups. The game constantly asks you to buy gems. It’s really annoying. But also with the update now I don’t get decor upgrades unless I pay out some of my blue cash (I forget the name) to watch a video to get the item. The only reason I bother with the restaurant decor is to get more stores to eventually get gems. But now I can’t do that. And now this new kitty bank is just another frustrating you can’t do it unless you pay real money. It’s getting annoying. I’d much rather pay out a couple bucks to have an ad free game then have a game with no ads that’s always in your face asking for money. Oh and pro tip: don’t ever pay $20 for the “key” to the food truck events. It always drops down to $10 and then $5 as the end of the event gets closer. I never pay because that’s a ridiculous amount of money even at $5 for a key that only works for one event. But if you do choose to buy wait til the last minute!
You HAVE to have a STRATEGY!!
by DeJhanea on 2019/07/05 18:58
I love this game soooo much more than any other game I’ve ever played....EVER! I feel like the levels are not that hard to complete including the side games and quests. Once i got to colafornia i noticed that having a strategy with the gems is all you need to keep leveling up and moving forward. Mine is making sure i have enough gems before the next restaurant so i can level up my store once i get there and get more gems from achieving stars and whatnot. Those once in a lifetime deals where it’s 100 rubies for $0.99 are the best but i rarely see them anymore ( probably because it’s supposed to be rare) the game is fun and having a successful guild and contributing to your guild daily is helpful in moving up too. It also takes a lot of focus sometimes for those hard levels. I don’t think this game is supposed to be crazy easy, it’s supposed to be challenging. Anyway i love this game to the moon and back and i think the developers are doing a bombass job! Keep up the great work and offer more of those .99 cent deals cause those be coming in handy asf lol
Its fun! But one thing...
by JaeJaeCee on 2018/10/07 15:52
The upgrades are too expensive a lot of times, and I would really like to be able to grind levels. I am only in the first restaurant, and I already see warning signs of over-monetization. Devs, would you guys be able to fx this? Maybe erase having to use rubies for the game, and switch that to hair, shop decor (NOT food or equipment, please!) and clothes. Or lower it so that upgrades aren’t as expensive. Maybe 1 ruby, + X gold. I don’t have the budget to be buying rubies.... so having to use them almost every day is frustrating! If you guys can increase the Ruby rewards from the Spin, and achievements, (if you’re not willing to erase having to use them for upgrades) it would be greatly appreciated. As for grinding levels- this would allow the player to save up, and learn from past mistakes. I personally believe this is a great way to let players learn! Maybe allow for grinding, with half the rewards as when they played that same level for the first time. Half the gold, but infinite plays, would allow a player to learn how to better play the game. I play so slowly because i am working with a broken phone, sadly, or i would play much more often than two levels a day :(
Love this game BUT....
by Heather9284 on 2019/09/23 06:45
I love this game. I’m so addicted to it. There are a couple problems though. As others have mentioned sometimes its impossible to get past certain levels without upgrading your things, but to upgrade you have to have gems. What am I suppose to do when I have 2 gems and I can’t get pas the level without upgrading everything that’s 22 gems? I’ve usually found a way around it at times, but the thing I HATE the most is how I hit things and it doesn’t take! I don’t know how many levels I’ve lost due to hitting the item and it doesn’t take it ESPECIALLY in the food truck!! I don’t know how many things I hit and it doesn’t respond. I hit an item and then a person, next thing I know that person is still there and the item is still in my hand. I’m really ticked that I have spent $3 on gems to continue when I’m at the final level in the food tuck and I lose because of that issue. It’s not right. Another thing is I give my things to Johnny and he messes it up! I want to put mushrooms on one thing and tomatoes on another and it gets switched up! I don’t know how many times that’s happened as well!

Great Game but...
by Snowyowl5489 on 2020/01/09 06:38
I feel the developers are becoming a bit “greedy” with requiring most things to be paid for with gems instead of coins or blue bucks. While there are different ways to gather gems throughout the game the amount of gems needed to upgrade your kitchen as you progress through the levels/ game become ridiculous and then if you want to get anything “special” they have replaced trading blue bucks with needing rubies to purchase. Another thing is as you progress through the game, you go to different areas with different currencies. The currencies from the previous area then becomes worthless after all upgrades are finished, but you still will end up playing those levels for turbo chef or daily quests. There’s should be a way to exchange previous area currencies for either rubies or even “specials” in the game. The censorship in the games guild chat is also a bit ridiculous and overly sensitive. While I get wanting to have a “family friendly” environment for the game there should be a option for guild leaders to turn the censorship on or off. There have been times where I have said nothing wrong in chat, but it gets flagged and I have to start the sentence over trying to figure out what word they flagged.
Needs improvement, but great game
by Rowland25G on 2019/10/17 23:12
I love this game. The only things I dislike are having to wait real time for product/equipment to be “delivered”. I use to be able to watch ads to speed up the process. I didn’t mind watching them because that meant I got to continue playing the game. Now I can’t watch ads (apparently some people can and a lot of them can’t??) so I’ll have to wait and I can’t beat certain levels if my product/equipment isn’t upgraded so honestly I just get off the game and play a different one. I think having people watch ads is a win-win for the consumer and developer so I don’t know why you guys don’t just make it to where everyone can watch ads to speed up the delivery process. I also hate how currency changes through out the towns. I have no many coins for certain towns and all my stuff is upgraded to there’s nothing left to do with those coins? Maybe have a currency trading of some sort? And it’s crap that we can’t change coins into rubies. Overall I like playing the game a lot but these improvements would make it so much less frustrating and way more enjoyable.
I love it, but...
by Toke777 on 2018/10/26 07:29
There are only a two sections (5 restaurants in the first section, 6 in the second), so if you play this like I did you’re done with what’s available WAAAAAAY before you want to be. When I go back to the first section there’s one location where I can’t get the side ingredients on the items I need, therefore I can not complete the achievements. There’s currently an event going on for Halloween which is cool and all but shouldn’t you be working on the full game play before you do an event that lasts a month? I appreciate that it’s not too difficult to get rubies (just don’t expect to get enough to buy everything), but the ratio of how much they go up as you upgrade feels disproportionate. I know you need to make money, but I’ve deleted games that make it this hard to advance. I feel like all the upgrades for the restaurants outside of the food and interior should not include rubies in their prices since I already always buy rubies when you offer the “one time deals” during gameplay so I can buy all the things I need for the ingredients and interior to help me with gameplay. I do love it, but those are my issues and the reason it won’t get 5 stars from me.
Recent Flaws within game otherwise my rating has always been a 5!
by Fair game play on 2020/08/14 13:58
Enjoyable game play rated at a 5 but would rate it at a 1 for odd in game losses through no fault of the player. I absolutely love love love cooking diary!! I have had this game for 2 years now. I have been noticing that recently there seems to be some scheming in the game. For example there are delays in customers to where your time is ticking away and the customers don’t show right until you have 1 second of play time left which means you really aren’t getting the amount of customers you’re supposed to during the level. Another example, when you have to serve a certain amount of drinks say for instance 7 but you only get 6 customers requesting drinks. Doesn’t seem quite right especially when the player serves all the customers. In the end these in game cheats force you to just give up or choose to use 20 gems to add additional customers. I played a level 4 times thinking maybe it was just me but realized that the level was set up to where you fail and hopefully get frustrated enough to use gems or just don’t realize the developers purposefully didn’t give enough customers. I hope this “issue” is fixed because I love this game and would hate to delete the game.

by kaykinlee on 2020/09/29 00:19
I have been playing this game for so very long I love it so much but sometimes it can be hard and I love the food truck levels 😀😀😀 I play day and night I like the people’s the game to so all I’m saying is that this is probably the best game ever even if there’s haters out there that don’t like the game it is still the best game ever like Taylor Swift said haters gonna hat
Great game but....
by Kelppy28 on 2020/09/28 23:16
This game is great. However not only do they advertise for you to buy options to help you advance but when you lose a level they literally take away levels and things that you earn. Instead of just re-doing the level like normal games. They want you to buy buy buy. No thanks!
Too much fun!!!

I play every day!! Really relaxing!!

There is not many adds if any at all the levels aren’t to hard I recommend this game to any age it’s amazing
Slow Game

I actually updated the game The game isn’t moving fast as before It slow this time And things takes time before it move
Possible bug??
by Noiykgbgvbfdv on 2020/09/28 15:14
I really enjoy this game and have spent more money than I’d care to admit on it. However, there seems to be an issue with Sugar Rush. I was on win 14 of 15 - even spent rubies to pass the previous level so I wouldn’t loose my place - the. Got pulled away, came back a few hours later, only to find it has dropped me back to the beginning. This has happened a few times and it is very frustrating. You shouldn’t loose 15 some odd levels of progress just because you aren’t able to play all the way through. Please fix this as I am definitely a loyal player.
For kids
by Veggiedog30 on 2020/09/28 12:41
Good game for kids, pretty simple for adults. Doesn’t seem to get harder.
Love this game but...
by StellanTux on 2020/09/28 03:08
Ok, so I absolutely love this game. I’ve had this for about a year and it’s a great game. However, it is very difficult to get banknotes and rubies, and hard to take care of your pet because it requires more rubies. Thanks! 🤨🤨🤨😡😡😁😁😁😁😁😁😁🥳🥳🥳🥳🤪🤪🤪

Awesome! Ish...
by Gbot2170 on 2020/09/27 22:44
AMAZING GAME!! For the first couple of restaurants. It gets too hard to get gems, which you need to progress easily. Every level is a challenge. I recall crying and quitting because of this game. But still, 3 stars because it's super fun if you can get enough gems. There's also wayyy too many adds.
Enjoyable but pay to win
by Ry🤮1 on 2020/09/27 21:49
This game is upsetting because it wants you to purchase diamonds all the time!
It’s Fun, but...
by GirlyGirl406 on 2020/09/27 20:06
It reminded me a bit of Cake Mania but with a helper. It’s a cute & fun game that isn’t overly difficult. The Gems get spent super fast & it’s annoying that the game almost forced you to spend real money to complete certain tasks and bonuses. It’s cute, it’s fun & you could easily lose at least an hour on it.
Fun!
by smanskiqueen on 2020/09/27 19:32
Amazing game, 10/10 would recommend!
Latest Update RUINED the game!
by money-grab-gets-the-BOOT!! on 2020/09/27 18:38
Updating my review because we deserve some answers: Can you please explain to me why you have changed the metrics of the game recently to make it almost impossible to pass levels? For example, I have upgraded everything in my current kitchen to max capacity except the two grills, which still need one more upgrade. My current level requires me to only serve three cooked dishes which I can serve my heart because I’ve been playing this level for days. How can the money required for the level be so much with EVERY FOOD ITEM upgraded to its maximum amount? I don’t understand this?? Your game used to be fun and I have spent so much money on it because I enjoy it, but these new requirements are getting ridiculous and greedy. Please change the game back or explain how you expect people to pass levels without dropping a small fortune on every kitchen?! So everything will now need to be at 100% to pass levels? And now we have to pass level 80 (not level 50) before unlocking a new kitchen? Getting to level 80 is impossible without spending a fortune! Using the roller skates or other items doesn’t even work! I’m disappointed in Kitchen Diary. You turned 2 and then ruined your own game! Sad. CHANGE IT BACK TO THE GAME WE ACTUALLY ENJOYED!

by apitbull1 on 2020/09/27 11:09
@MYTONA.. if you are rich and can afford to play the game, then, yes, it’s fun. I’ve been playing for awhile, and the changes that they have made makes it impossible to play without buying rubies to get through the game.. if you contact them, you receive a pre-written response, without the help you need. They do not care about your suggestions, and they don’t forward them to the “team “ that they say they have, so, don’t bother to give your thoughts!!
To the creator
by Mermaid lover 27 on 2020/09/27 00:02
I hate how it’s so different from the add when I bought this game I thought I would be doing what the add was doing not doing something completely different but other than that I really like the game so that is why I gave it a 3 out of 5 stars which that isn’t even that bad
Amazing #1!!:)
by lavender crislis on 2020/09/26 19:43
This is amazing It’s addicting !!
Do not hate this game
by Londonl15 on 2020/09/26 19:32
It’s fast but fun in a way. I don’t know how to say it’s a good game but I’ll say it’s REALLY fun.
Fun but annoying if you are not going to pay up
by Mfj5790 on 2020/09/26 19:01
The game is fun and addictive but be ready to open your wallet to get far in this game unless you are willing to spend numerous hours trying to get thru impossible levels
So good...

I just can’t stop playing it is so fun.
Me encanta

Es uno de los mejores juegos del mundo
I like it but...
by Tammi70 on 2020/09/26 04:30
I shouldn’t have to spend my rubies when the customers run out. That’s not my fault. It makes me upset because once I do it, I have to keep doing it then I have to buy more rubies or stop playing for a few days. That’s not fair. Also, the farther in game you get, the harder it becomes to get rubies. Not cool.
Best game ever!!

Needs improving

I try to put the tocos on the burner and it won’t go on there and I had a problem like that in the pizza cooking two can u plz fix it it won’t cook it at all I can’t play it
Fun but not free
by Lakita Lover on 2020/09/25 20:17
This game is lots of fun, but as others have said, it is not possible to progress past a certain point without purchasing rubies. I usually wait until the game offers the occasional sale of 100 rubies for $2, which is really what they should cost all the time considering how many are needed to make the later restaurants playable. The art and gameplay are good and the new pets are a cute feature. Aside from pricing, the only major thing I would change is the way players travel between restaurants. Once you have several pages worth of restaurants it is really annoying to have to scroll across the map and wait through multiple loading screens to get to the restaurants from the beginning of the game. It would be much better if there were a button on every screen that opened a menu of all the restaurants a player has unlocked. Then players could scroll through a list and teleport directly to any restaurant they want to play in. It would also be great if there were options for spending various coin types once players have completed an area. Maybe add a shop or a wheel for each section of the game, so when players go back to old restaurants to earn achievements they don't end up with hundreds of thousands of coins that they can't spend on anything.
Greedy
by Bri Kramer on 2020/09/25 01:46
I like this game but anytime I play a game where they are begging you to spend money it just makes me more adamant that I will not spend one penny on it and I’ll beat it without spending money. You literally can’t advance for days if you don’t spend money (ON A GAME, literally the biggest waste of money I can even imagine). Otherwise the game rocks. 2 gems for advancing a whole level? Greedy.
best cooking game ever
by Weassuuuuup on 2020/09/25 00:29
they always give you chances to win rubies other like other games where you’d have to buy to really get them.
Love the game but support is not good
by Whiskas98 on 2020/09/25 00:02
I’ve been playing this game for awhile and I LOVE IT. however, the support team is pretty awful and doesn’t give actual answers. Also they updated their game so that players will have I spend more real money instead of making their money of advertisements. Their most recent update removed the option to watch ads to speed up request for assistants. I contacted support and they said “ads don’t always show up for everyone” which is complete bull because they have always shown up and it was never at random. Not I have to wait 3 hours to request an assistant UNLESS I use rubies to speed it up. So basically their most recent update was to remove ads and try to force players to buy rubies so they can compete In guild quests. In short they updated their game so players who have been playing for a long time and are loyal to the game will have to spend more actual money.
Glitching in restaurant 3

Good game!
by HELLO I LIVE U on 2020/09/24 20:57
THIS IS THE BEST I wish there were more updates tho! Very cool app on the App Store! This teaches people to cook more foods!!! Very very cool! There was also a food truck on the app! But the event for it is over but I would say to try to game out!
love it!
by hoperellapuddingpie on 2020/09/24 19:07
I can’t help but continuously play this game. It’s kinda addicting.
Crashes!
by Koolaidkilla990 on 2020/09/24 15:01
Please fix the issue that is causing the app to crash constantly! We have paid too much money into this game to be continually dealing with this. Fix your game!
Recent update took the fun out of grinding
by Boogerpickerpro on 2020/09/24 13:24
I’ve been playing this game for about 2.5 years. They update often to keep it interesting. The recent update took away one of the big things that made the game so great. The currency in the game is rubies, and there used to be a really good balance of the rubies being affordable for those who want to pay to play but still accessible for those who want to just watch the ads and grind it out. I’m in the latter category. The fun part for me was the grinding, but after the recent update, grinding is so hard that it’s just not fun anymore. There is very little utility/reward in updating your restaurant, earning likes, playing the food truck, etc.. The game developers need to update the game again to make the grind rewards more worth it.
Perfect
by estrielle on 2020/09/24 08:56
No cooking game tops this game. Although it takes too much of my money, I just can’t get enough. It’s the most up to date cooking game I’ve downloaded and played. Very very modern. The outfits are AMAZING! I just LOVE IT!
Use to be good
by catpuaay on 2020/09/24 07:16
Use to be good !! You will have to spend money to win
Levels Impossible without Paying
by Taya J. on 2020/09/24 04:06
This game started off great but as you go through levels it seems that some are just impossible to beat unless you fully upgrade most items which requires you to purchase more gems. Starting to seem like a rigged game and after the amount of money I spent I might just uninstall altogether.
Just a few things to make it better.
by ndhrkehyf on 2020/09/23 22:53
I love the updates you’re doing with the game, but how about if you’re gonna do the timeline thing that at least maybe you could add a hairstyle, outfit or shirt/pants to make it worth going for instead of emojis, I could careless about. Also where are the seasonal stores at? Why did you stop that? I loved raising money to buy new hairstyles and outfits.
I’ve had it....
by Judge Imagi on 2020/09/23 20:18
Alright, so perhaps it isn’t the difficulty in the twin Pines restaurant. The fault lies with the gluttonous customer. The gluttonous customer is the worst customer in tasty Hills because when you serve him the last food before he decides to get another field, his heart meter does not fill up but rather decrease. And because of that it’s harder to keep him happier than other customers. Please fix him or remove him. Also, I’ve noticed that the character in the districts as the player moves forward, the character walks a lot slower. Maybe this is my imagination, but I find that she is not walking fast enough compared to earlier districts.
I LOVE THIS GAME I AM OBSESSED
by JiaAggarwal on 2020/09/23 18:03
I have never found a cooking game quite as good as this one!!!! The developers went out of their way to make it the best game possible! The graphics are amazing, and there are about a hundred different things you can do besides cooking! Thanks so much so making this game!
Update it back!!!
by unki691cp on 2020/09/23 15:08
this has become a pay to play game!!!
So addictive ( in a good way)
by bunnydoggyhorsyohmy on 2020/09/23 05:46
This game is by far one of the most addictive games I have ever downloaded! I can’t take my mind off of it whenever I’m not playing it! I have only had it for two days and I am already doing so well! I have a lot of cooking passion myself and I totally relate to almost everything that happens in the game! I do t usually write reviews but I just had to make sure this game got a good rating!
So much fun !!!!
by éla_Amore on 2020/09/23 05:18
In short, If you like Diner Dash - you will love this game. I think this game is so much fun aunt has so much to do so many different sceneries and so many different backgrounds and changes that make it always interesting You’re you’re not always making the same things you start off with the burger place and you can grow into a pizza joint. Overall if you like diner dash from way back when on the old computers, you’re gonna love this! I highly recommend
Great game!
by chillpicklechill on 2020/09/23 01:23
The only thing I don’t like is you do have to spend money to get enough gems to be able to upgrade your kitchen, another reason you would need gems is for better outfits and hairstyles, but if you are used to spending money in games then you are set. This game is addicting and fun I do find myself being like just one more time haha. There is many different restaurants to open and you can always go back and play at the ones you have already completed. I play this game daily it’s one of my favorites.
I want my guild back
by sailor_moon_R on 2020/09/23 00:15
I did enjoy this game I created a guild and you took it away from me! I’m crushed. Great game though gets tougher to earn rubies as you level up.
WOW😱
by hdbfhdndksndj on 2020/09/22 20:51
this game is awsome, I am sooooo addicted to it, literally it’s just so cool, you get to make a character, they’re are nice people, and everything is free. But if you want better clothes, then you would need to buy something, but still amazing! 😍😍😍

stupid game
by le.marklolle on 2020/09/21 20:33
Program developers constantly modify the data, making the game more difficult, very boring, and dishonest
The game is good
by Jennmariatorres on 2020/09/21 19:36
The game is good I have been playing it for 2 years but the problem is their updates always have some type of problem ,the new characters the Yetis are making the game impossible to complete a level that we were able to complete, all money that I’ve spent on rubies because of the problem with the game kicking me out or closing in the middle of a level while using assistants so I had to get rubies to be able to speed up assistants request, hopefully next time they update you test the game before you make us update I am not spending anymore money since I didn’t get reimbursed for all the money I’ve spent

I could sit and play Cooking Diary for hours. Not only is it fun making all the food but I also love upgrading my restaurant and making it look all cute. And it’s free so why wouldn’t you get it.
The best!
by Mushuplayer on 2020/09/21 13:57
I have been playing this game for a while now and I am very pleased with it! It’s not hard to me to earn rubies and the overall gameplay and storyline is awesome! My only suggestion would be to use the coins you gain from past restaurants to maybe convert to rubies or upgrade the new restaurants. Other than that this game is awesome! I actually convinced a few of my friends to play and they love it! ☺️
A glitch occurred :|
by Kaygray2432 on 2020/09/21 00:18
Great app! Super fun and all... ... BUT when I bought these pet cards, I unlocked this a pet cat named “butter”. The next thing I know, it glitches out on me and I no longer own the cat... and I checked the money amount I had, and it was back to it originally was.. so I thought, okay? I’ll just buy the cards again and it will probably give my stuff back or something like that.. but no :| I don’t really care about the pet but I’m kinda nervous about something like this happening again :||| Okay, so this happened again for about two-three times and I’m a little mad cuz I lost three pets + other cool cards.. I found that every time I name the animal it glitches out. It’s not like I’m losing the gems/money though.. that’s the part I’m thankful for. It just takes away the progress I got and made it like I didn’t spend anything or gained anything.
I’m mad

Okay so me and my mom were trying to play together so when she got to a level high enough I sent her a friend request. And she sent me one to but we couldn’t figure out how to accept them. So I went to to help searched up “how to accept a friend request” and it brought me to an article that gave me no help. So I went to chat thing and that gave me no help either. So one update is that you need to make it SO much easier to accept a friend request because you made it way to complicated. It’s really annoying. Please fix this all you need to have is a notification pop up that says “_____ sent you a friend request” that would make it so much easier. The way you have made it is way to complicated. Btw I still haven’t figured out how to accept it. PLEASE FIX THIS!!!!

by 👩🏼‍🦲 Nat on 2020/09/20 20:53
Definitely appreciate all the updates on this game and the free gifts from the developers ! I have fun playing this game and I really like my guild ! The one thing that could improve is the look of our characters. Developers can you make a bald option so my character can look more like me ?
close immediately after opening
by dandan0204 on 2020/09/20 18:45
As the title, can’t open it! I need help to fix it!
Fun and addictive app
by 😡really? on 2020/09/20 17:14
Really fun app that you could play all day. As for the ads, the ads are for only if you want to use it to speed up extra time which is very very useful. Although the rubies are very hard to get, it’s a very fun game once you have the rubies from the missions. Highly recommend the game though

Let me just say you can’t hate this game, it has adorable characters and fun storyline! And it has NO ads, that’s something I really enjoyed about it, But I have one question I’m a 15 and my parents won’t let me buy the golden ticket or key sapphire, I’m on level 25 and I still don’t have any clothe please respond to this! And I just wanna give a thumbs up to all the creators of this game :)
Great game
by Vane504 on 2020/09/20 06:12
This game is great and it’s so many food that everyone in the game eats so different
Not enjoyable anymore
by T. A. MACK on 2020/09/20 05:13
I used to really enjoy playing this game. I would sit and play it for hours. But now the creators are way too focused on the $! It’s not even enjoyable anymore. I’ve updated almost everything in my restaurant but I’m not winning levels why because they want me to PAY! Enjoyed it while it lasted. I’m done playing.
Best cooking game ever five stars

Pretty cool🤷‍♀️ past the time I guess
Very enjoyable
by munchkin1324576 on 2020/09/19 17:51
I think it is very entertaining and enjoyable but on the food trucks the orders come on so fast and it is overwhelming but overall it is a very fun game!
BEST GAME EVER!!! ( mobil game ever)
by PrincessHawkeye on 2020/09/19 13:17
Honestly I cannot stop playing. Must see for yourself!!!
I’m so confused
by JennBean2323 on 2020/09/19 10:09
Why when I write in the chat for my guild is it disappearing minutes later. My girlfriend says she wrote in the chat as well and no one can see it. I figured I needed to restart the app or something or maybe it needed an update but this is ridiculous. It wasn’t always like this and I really enjoyed the game but if people on my team can’t see I’m communicating with them during the guild competition than what’s the point?! Please fix.
My favorite game
by sha sha26 on 2020/09/19 09:24

by roxasyumi on 2020/09/19 01:10
Pretty much addicted to this game i want more free red gems to be easier to get
Another update- still greedy
by Jbcb0407 on 2020/09/18 22:49
I thought with the update they would have took in consideration everyone’s feedback but nothing has changed. Definitely deleting the app bc it’s impossible to play now without dishing out a lot of money. I hate giving bad reviews but this one is deserved. Looks horrible for the developers during a pandemic, greedy isn’t a good look. When you spin the wheel and land on a free life... you never get it.
They force the micro transactions
by Dkkdkf on 2020/09/18 21:51
Fun game, unfortunately they really force the micro transaction. You cannot upgrade and progress without spending rubies. Impossible to grind in this game. You have to pay to continue to play.
Glitches
by 47382892929292928374 on 2020/09/18 20:30
Ive been playing this game for a long time now. I open the app and all of my progress is LOST. I was finished with Ice Castle, my username was Viktoria and my guild was Chefs for Christ. Please help me get back my game. I tried to use my game center login and it had already reset itself to use the new character instead of my old one. I need my old character back. Pls help.
It’s good
by eleite4 on 2020/09/18 18:23
This game is good
Nice Game but Costly $$$$
by Tazzyfan on 2020/09/18 15:05
Enjoy the game; has some glitches but overall great to play. Unfortunately the in-App purchases are pricey and you can play without spending any money but you will not reap the benefits of your successes, e.g. Food Truck, Path to Glory, etc. You used to have the option to watch videos instead of spending money on some items, but that is now remove. How unfortunate to an otherwise fun game! Thank you for your response. I think it is important to support the game development by purchasing items within a budget. At the same time, when the rewards for the in game currency, e.g. Rubies are reduced, there is less of an incentive to do so. Based on your response, I’ll consider the monthly PTG purchase and discontinue all others.
Great game but gets worse with every update
by Blaze.. on 2020/09/18 14:10
I loved this game in the beginning. I would purchase alot of rubies to upgrade my restaurants but it seems that with every update it gets more and more expensive. Also food truck key that you purchase now reduced its rubies as well. To buy the key you used to get 65 rubies, now it is 50, level 15 used to give 10 now it gives 8. That is a loss of 68 rubies if you buy all 4 keys. If you buy all 4 keys you now get a chest that includes 20 rubies, so in all, Yes there is a loss of a total of 48 rubies. Also turbo chef was not ran Monday when it was supposed too.
A mess
by Jamsrq on 2020/09/18 12:48
Have played daily for a really long time it has been a superior game until floating mystery packages were added. Now 90% of the time reward videos either are black screens that crash or there is no way to get back to game and out of reward video after it has played so you have to close app and reward is never rewarded. Play is also choppy. Had new update and still crashing. Very frustrating, hope for a fix. That was yesterday, first thing today 3 reward videos crashed, can’t understand why they don’t fix this, I’ll update daily.
Mytona’s greed has ruined this game.
by Timabobima on 2020/09/18 10:19
Mytona has significantly lowered the amount of rubies given in each food truck, going from 65 down to 50 rubies each food truck, yet still charging the exact same price. So, there are four food trucks a month and they are charging us 20 dollars for 200 rubies when I just bought 260 rubies for 9.99. Provided I don’t get the outfits with a regular ruby purchase, but paying all that extra money for virtual outfits? Mytona also raised the wheel amount per spin, took unlimited assistants from the players and took the rubies from us in the tasty me friends book. When questioning Mytona as to why they did all this to their loyal players, they sent automated responses.
Keep it at 50 not 80
by jayz_mom on 2020/09/18 06:45
I absolutely love this game been playing it for over a year and not too long ago we only had to beat 50 levels before you we were able to move to a new restaurant and now it’s back at 80 can we go back to passing restaurants at 50 and not at 80
Inability for the devs to restore progress
by swagerxs on 2020/09/18 03:24
I for one don’t like the fact that my girlfriend and I have put a lot of time into this game are unable to get are old accounts back because if you uninstall this game you will end up losing access to that account and you’ll have to make a new one yes you could submit in what is called a ticket to have them respond to you later to see if they get it restored but my girlfriend who has played this game a lot longer than I have, has yet to this day gotten a response back if she could get her old account back and she had to make a new one and that is very frustrating because now the same thing has happened to me I would not recommend investing ANY MONEY INTO THIS GAME until this issue is addressed and fixed(if they will even bother to fix it).
Updating game.
by piebaby10 on 2020/09/18 01:26
Why my game is not updating? I have to go to level 80 just to unlock the next restaurant. I’ve updated my app but till have to play to level 80. Please help....
Awesome
by Teresa Franklin on 2020/09/17 20:02
Amazing game
Changes made are horrible
by Bookwormhap on 2020/09/17 19:29
I have been playing this game for quite some time and it’s been through a lot of changes. The most recent upgrade though has made it harder to play and much less enjoyable. If you don’t have opportunities to get jewels through game play and the only way to pass levels is to upgrade with jewels it forces the player to make purchases! We are in no position to be spending real money to play a game for entertainment. Pretty soon you will have less and less players!!!!!

Worth It!
by simonnster on 2020/06/13 19:39
I have never taken the time to write a review. But Cooking Diary is AWESOME!! I absolutely LOVE cooking games so I’ve played my fair few. This is definitely one of the best. Sure, maybe when you start off it seems hard to earn enough money or gems to do anything, but that’s the beauty of it- the game doesn’t charge you tickets or energy just to play a few levels. I’ve spent hours and lost track of time playing this game because there are SO many things to do! There is always a new Food Truck, Creighton’s Challenges, Guild Quests, special events to earn extra gems/money, not to mention that now with COVID going on, they issue you a FREE unlimited lives for 4hours, when you log in each different day! It’s a blast. I have not gotten bored yet, and I’ve only gone through 10 of the restaurants. I can’t even say “gone through” because the levels for each restaurant are basically infinite- I’m at 234 on one shop with no end in sight that I can see. Plus on the map I can see there are a TON of new restaurants that I haven’t even made it to yet. I really don’t know how anyone can gripe about this game, it is AMAZING. My one teeny tiny issue though- my wheel of fortune has seemed to disappear?? I can’t find the wheel anywhere. I know it’s still a part of the game because my guild mates keep sending us prizes when they hit the jackpot. But I haven’t been able to spin it because there’s no button!! Anyways that’s my small issue but other than that I love this game.
You can’t hate this game
by random person108 on 2020/02/07 11:35
This game is so enjoyable people will say it’s just a cooking game but when they download it they will be crazed about how awesome the game is the\y will get invested with the shocking storyline and unlike other cooking games other than this 1 has a storyline you can upgrade your restaurant and you don’t just stay in 1 restaurant while the characters in the game has personalities so you get attached to some of the characters and the events are amazing they are in the storyline and makes the game way more fun and the challenges of some of the customers like the forgettable customers the impatient and the 1 that can’t decide on their order make the game more challenging while other cooking games probably have just regular customers and some of them just stay and don’t leave which makes the game way too easy and some cooking games they might have the impatient customer but no more different customers other than them and I didn’t even mention the fact that you can change your character in so many ways is so fun and if you get tired of playing the game and just want to chillax you can join a guild and talk to people online while other cooking games require internet but you just play the cooking game without any chatting and just the game so in total this game is not just a game but it’s a book a chatting place and a cooking game so it’s a 3 in 1 essentially so I give this game 5 stars I would recommend this to everyone
AMAZING game
by Irelyn_Tiscareno on 2020/09/14 00:26
First off, great game. It’s very fun and very time consuming. But I still love it.😊 I also love the avatar editor. The outfits are really cute and fun! Although I do have a few complaints, just for the record, I still love this game. My first complaint is the clothing. I know what your thinking, “You where just raving about how good the outfits where.” Well yes the outfits are still AMAZING but the actual tab for it is locked till after some time. I wish the tab could open sooner. Also once you get the tab to open, you have to WAIT for some sections to be able to use such as the pet section and the shop. Another thing I want to add it the gems. The gems take A LONG time to earn. I wish that you could get gems more often even though they can be earned on daily login streak and wheel of fortune. Still... I just want to get more gems. The last thing I wanna add is something that isn’t necessarily about a glitch or a ad problem (which BTW there are like zero ads) or something like that. It’s actually something the players have been doing quite recently. On the guilds people have been putting “Dating guilds”. I don’t like that because there could be little kids coming across that and PRETEND DATING. That’s only something you would do as an adult. That’s pretty much it but please maybe fix these problems. Thank you 👍
Wow, Insane...
by THEWOLFGURL on 2020/09/08 20:32
I’ve been playing for over a year now and let me just say, this was a lucky find. From the very beginning I knew this was going to be my favorite game. So let’s get straight to it. There is a diamond balance, but honestly, the daily gems and quests you can complete make it nearly impossible to NOT have any gems. I wouldn’t see any reason why people would complain about not getting enough, when really there is a good amount you can gain. I tested it and gained 40 diamonds within 3-4 days. You could probably get more in that period of time. Also the amount of money that you need to play this game is absolutely none. I have gone through almost 11 restaurants without paying a cent. It just takes patience and hard work to save up diamonds to upgrade. Also you can buy certain rare clothing items but that’s entirely your choice. The harder the levels, the more diamonds you’ll need to improve your kitchen, which is what is necessary to complete the game. So be sure to spend them wisely! Overall I would say this is a FANTASTIC creation! The makers of this are geniuses, and they really do deserve shout outs for this incredible mobile game. I can play this all day if I wanted, but be careful with spending diamonds for clothing items (you’ll regret using them for that). Thank you for reading this review! Hopefully this review will help you decide whether or not to get this game. :) Enjoy your day!
Rubies
by blackberrysyrup on 2019/07/06 01:58
This game is very enjoyable and I got addicted fast. Like many other games you have a usual coin currency and then a special ruby currency. You need rubies to upgrade ingredients and appliances which isn’t a problem at first because they are relatively easy to come by when you first start. Now it’s still possible to get rubies but it takes a lot of time (unless you’re willing to throw some money at the game) and the amount of rubies rewarded doesn’t feel worth the task given for the amount of time and levels you’d have to play to get them (like serving 1150 plates of one dish for 5 rubies). Also I don’t understand why the coin currency changed when you make it to the next map. Now I’m not using the original coins for anything but still collecting revenue from those restaurants. I suggest an option to be able to exchange coins for rubies, that way the coins don’t go to waste as I’m not using the ones from the first map and I’ve already gotten more than enough in the second one. The only thing I’m falling short on in this game is rubies which is frustrating when you need them for all of the upgrades, especially when the next restaurant requires more coins and rubies for upgrades. The amount of coins you earn increases but the rubies adversely become harder to obtain. At the least I would like if the ruby rewards were higher and/or the ruby requirements for upgrades were lowered.
Gems too difficult to come by
by ShainaME on 2020/05/21 11:16
The game play is quick paced and really fun! ... at first. After about 3 or 4 restaurants in you start getting stuck because in a set time you have to serve x customers or make x amount of money. But to do that you need faster machines and more expensive ingredients... and how do you get those? With gems! But how do you get gems? Well, you can get 1 on day 4 of constant gameplay and 2 on day 5. You can watch an add twice a day and get 1 gen per add. You can spin a wheel for free once a day (I’ve gotten 2 gems this way maybe once a week, it’s hit or miss) and occasionally there’s special events where you can earn gems (1-3 gems every 5-10 levels complete). You also get a few gems when you get through episodes but you can only do that by whining levels. So when you’re stuck there’s 2 options. 1: wait. Every day you get a few gems. Save up to get that 16 gem tray or 12 gem oven upgrade. Might take you a few weeks of not playing and just clicking. Or 2: pay up. For a dollar you can get 100 gems.. sometimes. It’s one of those special offers that keep popping up. Or for $4.99 you can get a golden ticket and earn better prizes (gems and outfits) when you play events in the food truck. Gems should be a part of level prizes same as coins. Maybe to a less extent because I get it... ads aren’t enough, the game maker wants us to pay up. But it literally halts game play for me and that’s not ok. Do better Food Diary!
Actually Great
by macaronifriend on 2020/01/30 16:16
I really don’t review games nor do I enjoy modern mobile games because of the pushy capitalism that comes with them, the ads have taken truly over. HOWEVER - this game is entirely different. You CAN play this game pleasantly and still have so much to do without pestering ads. You CAN enjoy this game because of the quality of the game mechanics and there is just, like I said, so many things to do. Unlike most games, there is something for everyone here. I loved the integration of the food truck, different cuisines and restaurants, and most importantly GUILDS!! They’ve done it right, when many mobile games miss the mark on these features. This game stands out. It all makes Cooking Diary interesting and fun while remaining wholesome and doesn’t show children or adults horrible despicable ads or themes within the game (other than the witch in the newest update which I am not a fan of). It really is impressive and I give my thanks to the developers for taking their time to make what is, in my opinion, one of the best mobile games to date. Diner Dash can’t stand a chance next to Cooking Diary. And I didn’t even mention that the storyline feature in this game is surprisingly awesome, it’s actually cute and engaging and gives your character life. God Bless the developers and all who play this game in Jesus name. Thank you for bringing quality and wholesome entertainment to the App Store!
Amazing game :)
by genericpanic on 2020/07/27 15:39
This game is really fun! I’ve never been one to play cooking games for a long time, but I’ve already spent hours playing this game and it’s still enjoyable. I like how there are several things happening in addition to the main story: big events, small events, guild quests etc. I also like that you can add friends without having to necessarily go through Facebook. I really only have one major issue: the rubies are hard to get. I understand that it’s part of the challenge of collecting the rubies, but it’s at a point where there’s a lot of work just to get a couple of gems (unless I want to pay real money to buy gems). All the upgrades require gems to purchase in addition to coins. Coins I have no problem collecting, but the currency collecting is just disproportionate. I would LOVE if there was a way to trade in coins for rubies! This would definitely help those who collect a lot of coins but are unable to do anything with them because you need coins AND rubies to upgrade. Or, another suggestion would be to make the upgrades cost more coins but less gems. All that being said, I’m still able to enjoy this game, and while getting the rubies is a slow process, so far it hasn’t been too terrible. Oh and I would love if there were more clothing options that can be purchased with the banknotes. I really like this game! Thank you :)
This game is amazing for chronic pain!
by Mortishya on 2020/04/09 22:26
I have a chronic degenerative disease called CIDP. I also have numerous other conditions. Between all of these, I am in bed most of the time and in severe to extreme pain. This game has enough going on that I am able to dive in and put all my focus on it, removing my focus from my pain. Even though I can’t afford to put much money into the developers, I have been purchasing little extras when I can. I really just want to support this game’s development team because of how amazing this game is! The only negative for me is that the lives system makes it really hard for long play sessions, once your higher level. I have been playing this game a little over a week, I think, and have gotten my level into the 50s (in the 3rd cafe, the cinecafe I think it’s called). In the beginning you can basically play forever because of either lots of storyline and tutorial type things that take a bit to complete or items/extensions to your lives. Now that I am in the level 50s, the extensions/items are drastically more rare (you can buy these items with real money if you can afford to) and you are having to play multiple difficult levels to get to the amazing and funny storyline (which at this level is much shorter). So, to sum up, THIS IS AN AMAZING GAME🥰😘💜🤩🥰! I just wish I could afford longer play sessions😞....
BEST COOKING APP EVER!! 😍😍😍😍
by Saaaaaaaaamy on 2020/01/31 00:36
So I never heard of this game until SSSniperwolf sponsored this game she is a YouTuber. So I downloaded it and OMG I LOVE IT 🥰 best cooking game I have ever had!! I have downloaded many cooking games but they never seem to interest me but this one really takes the cake! I LOVE the story that goes along with it it really makes the game more fun and interesting I have never seen a cooking game with a story line and well that’s just the beauty of it. And I also LOVE how you have your own characters! I love it how you can be creative in your own way to make your own restaurants and your own character! I played many cooking games where the chef is way too plain and you would love to give it a makeover but you can’t. Just two flaws with the game the first one is that it HEAVILY tells you on your screen “Do you want to buy 100 rubies” all the time! It’s super annoying then when you try to click out it says “ Do you want to miss this special offer?” I know it’s a free game and all but come on. And the other thing is that in my opinion there should be more free clothes I’m being honest right now there is only one free outfit ONE! Can you at least put a little bit more? But other than that I think this is THE BEST COOKING GAME IN HISTORY IF NOT I DON’T KNOW WHAT IS! 😍😍😍😍 ❤️💜💞💝💓💗💖💘💕💙💚❣️💛 😅
Hours of Addicting Fun
by Andreanna Allyn on 2020/03/28 10:19
This game is great. The storylines are fun, the animation is bright and updates frequently for seasons and holidays. I spend hours serving up food to patrons and developing my restaurants. I would give 5 stars, but there are just a few things that irritate me enough to stay at 4. The need for gems increases as your levels increase. The ability to win enough to fully upgrade your restaurants are few and far between. Additionally, there are ads you can watch to augment your restaurant develop times as you upgrade, which made it easier, faster and funnier to quickly improve your cooking speeds and earning potential; however one you get to a certain level that ends and you are forced to wait up to 8 hours for upgrades which limits what you can do in your newest restaurant. Gems are expensive and I have been impulsive and spent money to more quickly and efficiently update my stuff, but if you’re patient you can get by with the free gems earned during game play. I love the variety of games within the game. There are team challenges, individual challenges and all kinds of mini games that keep things exciting. This is a great game. I wish gems weren’t so expensive and difficult to get and I wish I still had ads to help push the game along but these negatives aren’t enough to keep me from playing every day. It’s fun, relaxing and you’ll enjoy playing it.
Super addicting and fun for a few weeks...then just frustrating and $$ hungry
by mlknowles11 on 2020/04/29 05:12
I was so excited when I found this game. I was having so much fun playing it for the first few weeks. The animation is super cute, I love customizing the restaurants, and it’s satisfying to beat the levels. I was fine spending a few dollars on it because I was having fun, but as I advanced in the game, it became clear that I would have to spend a LOT more money to make progress. I realized this when they changed currency in the next district - I now have over 100,000 coins that are useless. You should at least be able to spend these old coins in the wheel of fortune to have a chance to get gems. To get the needed gems without spending real cash, you’d have to spend HOURS completing the same levels you’ve already played 100 times to get the measly 10 gems from a completed challenge - that’ll get you *one* upgrade in the more advanced restaurants (if that). Serve 1000 croissants? Guess I’ll have to play the same old bakery 200 times while earning useless coins. So annoying. Also, the story is pointless. They bring in all these random characters and there’s no real storyline and it doesn’t even relate to your journey as a chef, so why have it? Such lazy writing. And the ads to spend money in the game are CONSTANT. I’ve reached my limit with this game. No way am I going to spend real money on it again - way too repetitive and no incentive to finish the story.
Ridiculous ruby amounts
by Silvermist16 on 2019/11/23 23:16
I love this game. It’s very addicting but they are many setbacks and even changes that are not ideal. Rubies are getting harder to come by! We get 2 rubies every so often in the truck levels, but a suggestion is to maybe allow 1 ruby every truck level instead. They are also winnable after finishing a story (20 rubies), but we need those rubies to be able to finish the story. We can also win them in the achievements but having to serve, for example, 2400 snacks in the Particles of Taste restaurant is ridiculous for only 5 rubies. This should at least be worth 10 or 15. I get it sometimes since snacks and drinks can be served more often than the main dishes, but that is a lot for less rubies. And the currency differences are a little ridiculous too. Since we get to a point where we’re not updating restaurants in a city anymore, what’s the point of still having free coins regenerate every 4 hours. It’s really a waste and would be more useful to be able to trade in for rubies. Like I have almost 900,000 coins in one city and haven’t really used them. One last thing is the update on certain updates in restaurants where, for example, we need 5 rubies to get a certain wall design or curtain design now. We already need too many rubies for restaurant updates and this is just too much. It’s not reasonable. I understand needing to up some stuff up for players to buy in-app purchases in order to make money from this app, but there’s a better way about it.
Impossible to play after awhile without spending significant money
by Kad2274 on 2019/10/27 05:53
This was a great game until I beat maybe 4-5 restaurants. The cost of upgrades keeps getting more and more expensive and it seems like there are less rubies to be earned. I wouldn’t mind spending a little money every now and then but $1 for 10 rubies! It won’t even buy you one upgrade you need at the Golden Dragon restaurant I am at now!! It’s so frustrating. And also, I used to be able to watch videos to speed up delivery of upgrades or be able to speed up asking for help from my guild and now it asks me for a ridiculous amount of rubies. I thought this game was maybe going to be different since the first few restaurants seemed fair and reasonable. But it’s just like every other game. The daily reward is only 2 rubies! And then spinning the wheel almost always gets me 5 measly tickets, sometimes 1-2 rubies. It’s very frustrating. And why did the currencies change? Now I have so many useless coins. What’s the point to keep accumulating them. I’m going to play until I really get stuck (which I imagine will happen soon when it would probably take me 2 weeks to save up for one upgrade which would only help for a few levels. It’s incredibly frustrating when you should beat a level because you serve every customer, have no angry customers, don’t burn or throw out even one dish, and still fail because you don’t have the rubies to upgrade the cost of ingredients.
Fun game, but you take the good with the bad
by Thesmashlife on 2020/01/21 20:42
This is my “go to” game. I love the different themes and the variety of challenges including daily challenges, long term achievements, and healthy competition against other players- especially when you join or create a team. I give 5 stars for those reasons. The biggest hurdle is to acquire rubies (used for upgrades)... So save them while you can. I don't suggest using rubies to “speed up” upgrades, as it wastes rubies you could use in the future. I use the waiting time to complete other challenges/ achievements. As much as I love this game, I will say I’ve slowed down In playing. With the current update, they started charging rubies for restaurant decorations along with doubling the “paper money” price tags on decorations. This was a massive disappointment. I used to use the in game “paper money” to upgrade my restaurant decor and in turn, receive ruby rewards for higher prestige. This was key in consistently progressing through the game and earning those diamonds. But, hey the developers need to make money.. I guess they caught on. It was fun while it lasted. All in all very entertaining game. I do give a thumbs up in hopes that they don’t make any more money grabbing upgrades. Id rather spend on extras like outfits.
This game is awesome but needs a few changes.
by Markb082 on 2019/12/04 19:16
I absolutely love this game. By far the best cooking app I’ve played and it’s very addicting. I’ve been playing this game for about 6 months maybe and it’s still very enjoyable. I have paid like 8 bucks which I normally don’t pay for games but I wanted to get more gems and a cute Halloween outfit so I did. To anyone reading this make sure before you go into a new district spin the wheel and get rid of your coins because I have so many unused coins from the first few districts. I would suggest to the developers to find a use for the coins because I’m still able to collect but can’t do anything with them. Now that I’m up there in levels it makes it harder to upgrade my restaurant. You can go back and do certain tasks to get gems but it takes a while and sometimes I get stuck cause I don’t upgrade the restaurants all the way. I don’t use my bank notes for anything but decor and now you have to use gems to upgrade the decor that doesn’t seem fair. Also with the new update there is no time in between quests and it’s honestly too much. I usually play everyday for about an hour or more but some days I don’t have time to play and it makes it hard to contribute to quests. With the new update it won’t download. Not sure if this happening to everyone or just me.
Great time management game
by Ashley K. T. on 2020/05/28 09:39
I love this game. If you like fun time management games, then you’ll love this one. I played burger shop before and would have to say this game is better. You get to be in a team and compete, there are also competitions for individuals, you get to socialize in the chats, and you get to level up through the restaurants. There are strategic ways to get free gems. So you don’t necessarily have to spend money on it unless you want to progress faster. I also love the guild quest. I love the new feature of being able to speed up help requests for free. Great job devs. Can you do this an unlimited amount of times? If so, I’ll watch as many ads as you need me to because it is very helpful. I really like that you can progress within the game without having to break your bank account. You can spend money on it without going broke in the process if that’s your style of play. I also appreciate that there are so many levels and restaurants. It’s fantastic. One suggestion I have is a built in translator. In my guild, there are a variety of languages spoken. I would like it if this can be automatically translated to the language I’m using within the game so that I can communicate better with my teammates.
Great game but...
by allieplummer on 2018/11/02 15:23
I absolutely love this game. I quickly got addicted and couldn’t stop playing it. The graphics are amazing and the storyline is interesting. One problem I have with the game is how impossible the levels get. I understand the need to make them harder as you move up, but harder shouldn’t equal impossible. In one of my restaurants, I tried to beat one of the levels and failed about 3 times. I then got help from my guild and even with the help and the extra tips I still failed. Then I made every possible upgrade to my restaurant (stoves, ingredients, drinks, etc.) and I tried again and I still can’t beat the level. The game raised the coin objective I needed to beat the level but decreased the amount of customers I would get so I’m always like 20 coins short from what I need. It’s so frustrating and makes me want to quit and delete the app. The second problem I have is the need for gems to upgrade everything. They’re already super hard to come by in large quantities unless you by them. When you do get them, it’s like you immediately have to spend them again. You should only need coins for upgrades, and if it’s a higher level one maybe it could require one gem but not eight. Other than these two issues this game is really great and I would start recommending it more if they somewhat fixed these two problems.
Best game but a tiny complaint
by Reviewing your app. on 2020/01/11 00:57
Ok to be straight, I got addicted fast as heck, and I love this game, but the prices are a little high. Seriously though, 2.99 for just a kitty bank!? I can buy like, three songs on iTunes for that price. And these special offers (take the kitty bank for example because it’s going on right now but will end like in 2 hrs) barely last that long. I went on a Vacation with my family for two weeks and when i got this game, the “kitty-bank” had like maybe 5 days left at the time. Yeah I know you can’t run these things forever and yeah you wanna make more money with the offers but the southern key was 9 bucks like seriously, I bought myself an entire meal with that money. (10 bucks whatever it’s a one dollar difference) Maybe it doesn’t sound like a huge deal but I had 2.77 left in my iTunes and I hadn’t found any iTunes cards in stores while I was on VC. So I couldn’t buy the kitty bank or the southern key. I’m getting on my flight back to the US soon but all the special deals will end before I arrive and get some iTunes cards. Please if you read this please re-enter the kitty bank for just a month or two. Thanks for making a great game though, congrats developers!!
Fun but not free
by Lakita Lover on 2020/09/25 20:17
This game is lots of fun, but as others have said, it is not possible to progress past a certain point without purchasing rubies. I usually wait until the game offers the occasional sale of 100 rubies for $2, which is really what they should cost all the time considering how many are needed to make the later restaurants playable. The art and gameplay are good and the new pets are a cute feature. Aside from pricing, the only major thing I would change is the way players travel between restaurants. Once you have several pages worth of restaurants it is really annoying to have to scroll across the map and wait through multiple loading screens to get to the restaurants from the beginning of the game. It would be much better if there were a button on every screen that opened a menu of all the restaurants a player has unlocked. Then players could scroll through a list and teleport directly to any restaurant they want to play in. It would also be great if there were options for spending various coin types once players have completed an area. Maybe add a shop or a wheel for each section of the game, so when players go back to old restaurants to earn achievements they don't end up with hundreds of thousands of coins that they can't spend on anything.
Rude Customer/Rubies
by QuitaB2012 on 2020/01/09 18:38
I love this game! The a guild leader and we have fun! Come to Holy Pepperoni if you’re looking for an active guild home! I want to complain about the white privileged, rude, impatient customer that makes the game unnecessarily uncomfortable. He comes with an attitude because he’s in a rush and thinks he should be served first! That’s so unfair. I work in food irl and I do have some of those customers but I wish to escape that rude and uncomfortable part of real life. I do not wish to have it in a game as well. He has the power to ruin an entire game or cause your turbo chef session to end when he’s ordering the whole restaurant with 2 hearts. That’s ludacris! This should be dealt with, at least give him 3 hearts or take him and his attitude all out together. Rubies. A necessity. It’s so hard to get them or at least get enough for an upgrade. Not everyone has money to spend to buy rubies so we’re stuck on levels that will require an upgraded item to pass the level. If we can obtain more rubies in the daily spin or when we pass food truck levels, it would be so much better. Other than that, the game is awesome and I recommend it to everyone!! Download it and join Holy Pepperoni and be active!
BEWARE: Super Addictive!!
by MuzicBabie on 2019/08/31 23:28
I absolutely love this game. I’m not the type to get addicted to games but since I’ve started this one, I have been completely engrossed. Now the only downfall is the rubies, and the time it takes to be able to request assistance especially when you have a guild quest that you need assistance to complete. I have spent so much money on buying rubies at some point during the game I think it would suffice to be able to trade old coins from old towns to rubies for new towns, as many rubies as it takes to upgrade items they will run out quick and you’ll need to still buy more so it’s not completely unreasonable. The old levels are not really played and the money won’t be needed because the items are all upgraded so it’s coins for no reason that I can’t use on any other level across the map. Think about it. Plus it would keep people playing more because they won’t lose levels for not having rubies to be able to upgrade which means they will be more apt to purchasing small amounts of rubies more often to be able to upgrade items. But besides that the game is absolutely amazing and you guys did an awesome job!!
Let’s talk about gems.. AGAIN.
by Kiminiko on 2019/09/26 01:14
I recently downloaded the game and got super hooked and gave the game a rating 4/5 stars... Today, I noticed certain things that ticked me off a bit. 1. When you pay to spin the wheel, the deals should become better. You have GOT TO BE KIDDING ME with the ONE gem option *facepalm* 1 gem literally does nothing! It makes me not want to invest in spinning the wheel. 2. More options to win gems!! Even if it’s one or two gems every level or every two levels. It’ll keep people actually wanting to play. 3. Since you guys wanna charge for gems then you might as well do good deals... honestly, $3 for only 60 gems!? And $1 for only 10 gems!? That’s ridiculous! If I see a good deal I’ll take it and invest more in the game but all you guys have are lame deals where clearly you get less for your dollar. At least $1 for 40-50 gems and you’ll be getting a payment from me everyday. And last but not least, you guys aren’t listening/reading. You can tell in almost every review on this game that everyone has something to say about the gems and clearly that problem has not been solved. I understand game developers need money too, but think about the outcomes in the LONG run. Think about your loyal players that will invest more if you make better deals. The game is SO GOOD but there’s always room for improvement. Work with us, don’t let us down!
Cooking Diary
by Spalmer0105 on 2018/10/11 19:56
Great game! I love how all the customers and all the characters have their own unique flawless detailed looks! Fancy hair, nice outfits, cool accessories. BUT there is one MAJOR flaw though. They don’t look realistic at all to me. Oh actually there is another major flaw. It skips sometimes. All I want to do is play an awesome cooking game that’s completely different from all the rest but when it skips like that I can’t very well do that. So those two things should be fixed. Thanks! Oh and I’d suggest more main characters. There are only like two. My character/cooker and her cooking grandpa. But I LOVE the name of the town/city! Which is tasty hills. It’s a really cute name and the game is SUPER kid friendly!!!!!!👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👍🏼👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻👊🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 Thanks for making it kid friendly. Hahah AND adult friendly hahah! Obviously!! Well, love the game. Could be more products in the restaurant though. Just a suggestion.🙂🙂. Well... I don’t think there’s much more to say!! I’ve already done a lot anyway soooo. Yeah hehe. Well I hope u have a wonderful day cooking diary creators. Bye bye! I’m sure I’ll be writing more reviews to you and your game and your company soon. That will probably be when I see something else to comment on. Hehe. Well have a great great great great great day!
Fun but Pricey - Impossible to Obtain Gems!
by Just a Poor College Kid on 2020/04/14 19:16
This game is extremely fun to play and I’ve been obsessed the past couple of days. HOWEVER, the ability to obtain gems is EXTREMELY difficult. The game encourages you to purchase gems, however the gems are overpriced and frustrating, because there really is no other way to obtain gems easily. In order to obtain gems for free you have to complete quests which essentially make you replay a level hundreds of times in order to obtain just one or two gems. Upgrading your kitchen fully requires hundreds of gems. It would be a lot more enjoyable to play if things didn’t require HUNDREDS of gems in order to progress in the game; I often have to stop playing solely because I don’t have gems and cannot get anymore until the next day with the daily quests. Even after waiting a day, it is difficult to gain enough gems to upgrade enough of your kitchen to progress to the next stage. I’ve purchased some gems before, but since upgrading requires so many gems, the gems were used in SECONDS. I would honestly NOT recommend this game unless you have money you’re willing to spend. This is especially because once you get sucked into the game, you end up getting extremely frustrated since it’s so impossible to get gems.
Cool game but gems is an issue
by LeanaF212 on 2018/09/14 18:48
When I first started playing this game, I really enjoyed it and the storyline is interesting and great too. However the only thing that is a bummer and I know I am not the only one who has said this, but it’s the fact that to upgrade the kitchen not only do you need to use the coins you have, you also need to use the gems too. This I find is a bit difficult because it’s not as easy to gain gems as it is to gain coins. So maybe my suggestion to keep this game going and make it better is hopefully just have the coins themselves be the only thing needed to upgrade the kitchen so it will make it easier and have the gems used for other special things or upgrades. Especially when the levels increase and get harder to beat and you need to upgrade the kitchen and you don’t have enough gems, you then have to be forced to pay for them and if you still don’t have enough gems after you do, where you have to spend another 99 cents for example is getting to just be pointless and not worth it. There are other ways to use gems but just not constantly along with coins to upgrade kitchen items. I hope you creators can reconsider and make it better and easier for us the gamers who love to play this game because it is pretty good!
Cooking diary is an amazingly awesome game but...
by artsandcraftsqueen on 2020/08/10 14:34
I think cooking diary via an awesome game but there is a few things I would like to fix. First the ads for the game are nothing like the actual game the first time I got the game I thought you could level up yourself that’s what it showed me when I saw the add for it. The next ad I saw for showed a a moving belt like the one at the grocery store and had to take the stuff of the belt and give it to the people in the game you have to actually cook the food not get it off a belt. Please give us ads that actually represents the game.😕😕 The next thing is I never ever run out of time when I play the game and I have never burnt stuff but I never get and any of that blue money that you get like come on.😒😒 You can use that blue money to get new clothes and shoes and stuff like that i have been playing for 6 months and I still have not gotten any new clothes or anything. I am not a fashionista and I don’t need to get any new clothes but still make it more fun for everybody else. Thank you so much for reading I feel like my voice should be heard so if you read this you are making my dream come true but I have a long time to achieve that because I am a kid but still thank you 😊
Addictive But The Coin Issue Is Annoying
by Megumi6 on 2020/01/11 10:45
I really enjoy this game and am impressed with the many features Mytona has put into this to make it an immersive game. I’m not finding the gems to be too hard to come by as I get quite a few from achieving ranks in restaurants or finishing episodes and achievements or spinning the wheel. I also took advantage of newcomer deals to buy gems at a steep discount, something I normally wouldn’t do. Gems are also available in reasonable package deals if so desired. Gameplay is engaging and challenging but so far not so challenging that I feel discouraged. My chief irritant with this game is the same as other players: I have a ton of wasted coins in the first district that I can’t use for anything, not even the wheel of fortune. I wish I had read reviews beforehand so I knew to use the wheel before opening the second district. It also seems unfair that daily quests send you back into places where you earn revenue that you can’t use. I’d at least like to be able to spin the wheel to earn banknotes and power ups or maybe be able to use the coins to buy pet supplies or clothing. I sincerely hope Mytona listens to the feedback of the players on this issue as it is quite frustrating.
Impressive
by papi kota on 2020/02/22 08:38
Honestly the best free cooking app on the App Store currently. Interesting storyline, lovable characters, and very fun gameplay. The game doesn’t treat you like you’re an idiot, and gives you some pretty challenging levels. I feel like the ruby and coins distribution are fair with the competitions, achievement, and high scores you can rank in. However, with each new restaurant (another perk, multiple restaurants) things get more expensive, and you really start having to grind for coins. I wish that was scaled better along with the higher ruby costs, but overall it’s a lovely game. I will admit that I’ve spent money on this app for extra rubies, but that’s because I’m impatient. If the creators polished the game and made it a stand alone with even better in-depth game play, I would absolutely buy it outright full price. It reminds me of the original Cakemania games that I grew up with. I’m definitely happy with this game and supporting it, and really excited to see what other apps they’ll put on the market in the future. I truly wish I could just pay a standard set price for the full game honestly because I feel like with some tweaking it’s good enough to justify it.
limited time game mode bug?
by EmmaTheSrawberry on 2019/07/06 23:16
I love this game and have opened quite a few restaurants already. I love the upgrades, new restaurants that have their own unique items and foods, and outfits for your character. Some people complain about how hard the levels are, but they either need to upgrade their items or just get better at the game. 😂 However, when playing the limited time mode (not sure what it’s name is - the most recent one where you need the northern key to unlock more items as you move up the “road”) I can’t add the white cream sauce on top of my dishes. This makes it unplayable because I cannot serve half of my customers. I click on it and nothing happens and when I try to serve it, it won’t let me no matter how many times I click on the sauce bottles. Not sure if this is my fault or if its my phone or the game. I personally think it’s just a bug because I know when I play normal games that sometimes when I press something I have to click it a few times before my character walks over there. Now I have no more ways to earn dollars. Hope this can be fixed. Thanks! EDIT: The LTM is called “Pop Culture” or something.
First I want to say that I love cooking diary I am addicted to this game.
by shorycake on 2019/08/25 11:36
I have spent tons of money on in app purchases. I have one issue so frustrating to me, I understand u get offers just pop up randomly in the game to purchase rubies coins, boosters etc I have never received an offer of 99 cents for 100 rubies,so I had my administrator of my guild send me a photo of the offer. I understand that people don’t buy a lot get this offer all the time. But those of us who make regular purchases never in 6 months ever have gotten this offer. I sent my concern to your support center then I was told there was nothing they can do they have no control over the game pop up purchases. I also have an issue with the restaurant Dessert Fair, this restaurant takes a minimum of 2, seconds to get first customer and then that level runs extremely slow. Example I played a level that required money and make 12 let’s just say happy, the game clock didn’t run down to o.oo it stopped with the last plate in my hand giving to customer clock stopped at 0.11 seconds. But over all I am addicted to CD I LOVE THIS GAME the graphic the story line but we want to remove the coins from old islands they are useless or can we figure out some way to use all of our coins trade for rubies or blue notes or dog supplies so many can be done in one day. Please consider making these changes. Happy gaming everyone!!!
Addictive?
by camwonderland on 2019/03/05 22:55
I really enjoyed this game when I first got it. I beat the first restaurant level quickly, but when I upgraded to the bakery the levels started to become harder. One level was filled with all of the customers that forget their order as soon as they stated it, which was near impossible. I thought the bakery restaurant level would be similar to the diner one, due customers being able to customize everything, however, I was wrong. It is very much indeed similar, but it is HARDER. Example: How am I supposed to cook three cakes with two ovens, one triangle cake with chocolate icing and blueberries, one star cake with strawberry icing ONLY, and one cake with who knows what? And on top of that, dealing with what drink they would like, having to reset the drink machine, what snacks they would like as well, and making sure that they aren’t getting too impatient? One time I used all of the candies for just one level! I can’t even complete levels anymore without having the urge to close down the app! I was really excited to keep going along with this game until I made it to the last restaurant, but due to how impossible the levels are getting I might not be able to. I love the storylines/plot, how we can create our own character, and much more, but please make the levels a little bit easier so I can truly enjoy this amazing app!
Fun To Play
by Bruce Fanatic on 2020/04/21 13:38
I really love this game it is addicting to play and have been playing it for a long time. I love how you can see the action of the characters in the kitchen as you play along. The colors are vibrant and it really makes me happy overall and it helps to pass the time especially during this quarantine period. I love the food truck levels it gives me a fun rush. Please note: A few issues I have noticed is that there should be an option to purchase the pets in the store as well as playing videos to get gems. With this recent update this disappeared. It seems logical that the more you allow us players to purchase items, the more profits you could ring in. Some games offer you a chance to play for the progress and if you notice your not getting the item in time they offer you a chance to purchase. I was bummed I couldn’t get the rabbit because the progress seemed slow due to the changes in the update it became a bit lore challenging and because of the financial issues currently going on. I hope you will reconsider the purchase options. Other than that I definitely recommend this game.
GETS WORSE WITH EACH UPDATE
by anonmember on 2020/03/12 06:41
Look, I don’t mind spending money on this game. It’s the only one I play on mobile and it brings me joy, so why not? (Trust me, I’ve spent way too much money on this game).And, to be fair, developers have to earn an income too. That being said, this game gets worse with each update. Developers think we’re not smart enough to realize what is happening. First, gems started to be used on everything — on decor upgrades and clothes — when it used to be on just kitchen upgrades. Blue bucks have become near obsolete because you can’t buy clothes with them anymore so they just accumulate. Furthermore, now the developers want to decrease the amount of gems we get from Guild Quests? You must be joking. They have literally decreased the amount -10 gems in rewards. I used to earn 20-25 gems each Guild Quest and now earn just half of that. Even when you express frustration to support, they respond with the same message (as I’ll most likely receive in response to this). Everyone hates these updates but MyTona doesn’t care at this point. Plus, it’ll keep getting worse. Guaranteed. I was tempted to make a purchase again on one of their offers but I don’t want to support a terrible business model. To be honest, I might let go of the game soon. So disappointing as I did love the Cooking Diary.
BEST restaurant time-management game, I’m obsessed!
by kattlelol on 2020/04/30 02:54
I’ve honestly never in my life written an app review before, even for things I use all the time and love, but I have to write one for this game. I’ve tried quite a lot of mobile time-management games, especially in the restaurant category, and this one is the best one I’ve come across. I’ve stopped playing the other ones I’ve downloaded, including one I used to play allll the time and have spent like $40 on. KUDOS to the team that put this together because I can tell it took a LOT of work, between the gameplay design and the graphics and the storyline… I tend to be stingy with in-app purchases but had no problem buying one $5 pack for this game, less because I wanted the items and more because I just wanted to support the developers! I’m not even annoyed at the ads in the game (which you can choose to watch to get more rewards - they’re not forced upon you) because I just want this game to continue developing more restaurants and storylines! There’s often new events popping up so that you can never really get bored of it. As you can tell I’m obsessed!
My first ever app review!
by jacqipro on 2020/03/08 13:48
Honestly I don’t think I’ve ever left a review for an app before, but I just enjoy this game so much I felt really inclined to write one! It’s the best cooking and time-management game I’ve ever played by far and there is so much that goes into it; you always have something to do, a level to unlock, a restaurant to upgrade, a guild quest to win, etc etc...and I especially like that while yes, there are in-game purchases, you don’t have to spend money to get to enjoy and play the game! You can earn gems/coins in multiple ways so you aren’t always stuck waiting hours between upgrades. I digress. When I discovered this game, I originally had gone into the app store bored and just trying to find some new game to pass the time on, next thing I know I’m hooked lol I play it everyday. Oh also I wanted to add that their support team, in my experience, has been fantastic. They’re quick to respond and have solved all of my past questions/issues (e.g., quickly helping reconnect my account when I thought I’d lost it). Anyway, TL;DR - I love this app. It’s genuinely enjoyable and easy to get hooked :)
GREAT game, but EXPENSIVE
by T'ichelle on 2020/05/20 22:47
This is a great game! I don’t typically find games that I enjoy playing, but once I started this game I couldn’t stop! The only down fall is eventually you get to the point where you are only accumulating 2-3 gems/rubies at a time and it is very far in between. The further you are through the game the more gems/rubies it requires to upgrade your kitchen equipment. For example, I might not be able to pass a level until I can collect enough gems/rubies to upgrade a part of the kitchen which in turn makes me score higher to pass the level. If you cannot collect the gems/rubies through the game play itself you are left with the only option of purchasing them with actual, real money. $2.99 a pop, which isn’t TERRIBLE but isn’t super cheap either giving you would have to purchase this AT LEAST once a week to continue moving forward in the game. I’m on the very last restaurant of the “second town” and I cannot go any further in the game without purchasing rubies through iTunes. I’m DONE spending money on this game. Great game, but TOO expensive to play. The gems/rubies should not be so hard to earn through the game play.
Very Addicting
by MusicKei on 2020/05/19 06:18
Normally I get bored with games after awhile, especially cooking games. But this game had me hooked from the start. You can own more than one restaurant and it’s very refreshing, because after a while I tend to switch to another restaurant to keep me occupied. They don’t shove ads in your face constantly, you only watch them if you want to speed up your deliveries or add decorations without spending rubies or bucks. And I love the storyline; it keeps you on your toes. The only problem is what everyone is saying about the rubies. The further you progress, the harder they are to come by and some tasks you can complete for rubies aren’t really worth the trouble. You can’t upgrade your restaurants without them. If you don’t mind spending money every now and then to buy rubies, then you’re good to go. Otherwise, you just have to be extremely patient. ETA: The amount of diamonds to continue a level that you’ve lost should start off with a minimum of 5 then gradually increase if you keep losing. It’s annoying when I accidentally spend 20 diamonds on a level I could’ve easily beaten after a few more tries. Diamonds aren’t cheap.
Game Losing Appeal

Don’t get me wrong, I love the game and it’s a great way to spend spare time. Love the challenge of it. But, you know what I’m about to say too, the gems. When you first start the game off, gems are easy to come by. Mostly because you level up fast and if you’re in a active guild you get the prizes, all that jazz. You don’t have a need to waste money and that’s great. But by the time you get to the second map, everything basically revolves around gems and they are not possible to come by to upgrade unless you spend money. The ‘discounts’ aren’t even discounts to me anymore because of it. I have over a 100k coins just sitting there because they're not being used for anything. I don’t mind using gems to upgrade but I think it should either be reduced or getting said gems should be easier. It used to be that the food trucks helped, now you have to pay money to actually get good stuff. Totally understand that the app needs to make money, but the appeal of this game at first was that I didn’t need to throw money at it to have tons of fun. Now, that appeal is dying.
I’m obsessed ❤️❤️❤️😍😍💕💕💕💕

Ive tried to find a game like this but i never can. But when i saw the reviews that were way better then the other games I’ve tried i was like ok it seems like a good game so ill try it i went to sleep at 6 in the morning planning this game and i was not tired i got this game yesterday and right now i have 2 restaurants open about to have 3 and that’s so cool because with other games it only gives you 1 restaurant but this one you one you just keep on playing and rearming award then when you finish with restaurant you go to the next there’s a shop and everything people coming in and taking pictures of the food and rating how good it is. No matter what other people say about the restaurant they keep it official and honestly if you don’t want to be obsessed with a game [you will want to do it with this game if you don’t get this game you are missing out] then that’s on you. When i first opened the game i thought this was going to be a stressful game but it’s not for me personally It calmes me. PS YOU CANT HATE THIS GAME EVEN IF YOIU TRY TO JUST TRY IT AND SEE FOR YOURSELF✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻✌🏻
Gems gems gems

As many other reviewers said this game is fantastic other than the gems. I didn’t find it too bad and was able to get all the way to the top level released if I was patient and worked towards some of the achievements. However, I’m frustrated with the update and the pop ups. The game constantly asks you to buy gems. It’s really annoying. But also with the update now I don’t get decor upgrades unless I pay out some of my blue cash (I forget the name) to watch a video to get the item. The only reason I bother with the restaurant decor is to get more stores to eventually get gems. But now I can’t do that. And now this new kitty bank is just another frustrating you can’t do it unless you pay real money. It’s getting annoying. I’d much rather pay out a couple bucks to have an ad free game then have a game with no ads that’s always in your face asking for money. Oh and pro tip: don’t ever pay $20 for the “key” to the food truck events. It always drops down to $10 and then $5 as the end of the event gets closer. I never pay because that’s a ridiculous amount of money even at $5 for a key that only works for one event. But if you do choose to buy wait til the last minute!
You HAVE to have a STRATEGY!!
by DeJhanea on 2019/07/05 18:58
I love this game soooo much more than any other game I’ve ever played....EVER! I feel like the levels are not that hard to complete including the side games and quests. Once i got to colafornia i noticed that having a strategy with the gems is all you need to keep leveling up and moving forward. Mine is making sure i have enough gems before the next restaurant so i can level up my store once i get there and get more gems from achieving stars and whatnot. Those once in a lifetime deals where it’s 100 rubies for $0.99 are the best but i rarely see them anymore ( probably because it’s supposed to be rare) the game is fun and having a successful guild and contributing to your guild daily is helpful in moving up too. It also takes a lot of focus sometimes for those hard levels. I don’t think this game is supposed to be crazy easy, it’s supposed to be challenging. Anyway i love this game to the moon and back and i think the developers are doing a bombass job! Keep up the great work and offer more of those .99 cent deals cause those be coming in handy asf lol
Its fun! But one thing...
by JaeJaeCee on 2018/10/07 15:52
The upgrades are too expensive a lot of times, and I would really like to be able to grind levels. I am only in the first restaurant, and I already see warning signs of over-monetization. Devs, would you guys be able to fx this? Maybe erase having to use rubies for the game, and switch that to hair, shop decor (NOT food or equipment, please!) and clothes. Or lower it so that upgrades aren’t as expensive. Maybe 1 ruby, + X gold. I don’t have the budget to be buying rubies.... so having to use them almost every day is frustrating! If you guys can increase the Ruby rewards from the Spin, and achievements, (if you’re not willing to erase having to use them for upgrades) it would be greatly appreciated. As for grinding levels- this would allow the player to save up, and learn from past mistakes. I personally believe this is a great way to let players learn! Maybe allow for grinding, with half the rewards as when they played that same level for the first time. Half the gold, but infinite plays, would allow a player to learn how to better play the game. I play so slowly because i am working with a broken phone, sadly, or i would play much more often than two levels a day :(
Love this game BUT....
by Heather9284 on 2019/09/23 06:45
I love this game. I’m so addicted to it. There are a couple problems though. As others have mentioned sometimes its impossible to get past certain levels without upgrading your things, but to upgrade you have to have gems. What am I suppose to do when I have 2 gems and I can’t get pas the level without upgrading everything that’s 22 gems? I’ve usually found a way around it at times, but the thing I HATE the most is how I hit things and it doesn’t take! I don’t know how many levels I’ve lost due to hitting the item and it doesn’t take it ESPECIALLY in the food truck!! I don’t know how many things I hit and it doesn’t respond. I hit an item and then a person, next thing I know that person is still there and the item is still in my hand. I’m really ticked that I have spent $3 on gems to continue when I’m at the final level in the food tuck and I lose because of that issue. It’s not right. Another thing is I give my things to Johnny and he messes it up! I want to put mushrooms on one thing and tomatoes on another and it gets switched up! I don’t know how many times that’s happened as well!
Cool

Great Game but...
by Snowyowl5489 on 2020/01/09 06:38
I feel the developers are becoming a bit “greedy” with requiring most things to be paid for with gems instead of coins or blue bucks. While there are different ways to gather gems throughout the game the amount of gems needed to upgrade your kitchen as you progress through the levels/ game become ridiculous and then if you want to get anything “special” they have replaced trading blue bucks with needing rubies to purchase. Another thing is as you progress through the game, you go to different areas with different currencies. The currencies from the previous area then becomes worthless after all upgrades are finished, but you still will end up playing those levels for turbo chef or daily quests. There’s should be a way to exchange previous area currencies for either rubies or even “specials” in the game. The censorship in the games guild chat is also a bit ridiculous and overly sensitive. While I get wanting to have a “family friendly” environment for the game there should be a option for guild leaders to turn the censorship on or off. There have been times where I have said nothing wrong in chat, but it gets flagged and I have to start the sentence over trying to figure out what word they flagged.
Needs improvement, but great game
by Rowland25G on 2019/10/17 23:12
I love this game. The only things I dislike are having to wait real time for product/equipment to be “delivered”. I use to be able to watch ads to speed up the process. I didn’t mind watching them because that meant I got to continue playing the game. Now I can’t watch ads (apparently some people can and a lot of them can’t??) so I’ll have to wait and I can’t beat certain levels if my product/equipment isn’t upgraded so honestly I just get off the game and play a different one. I think having people watch ads is a win-win for the consumer and developer so I don’t know why you guys don’t just make it to where everyone can watch ads to speed up the delivery process. I also hate how currency changes through out the towns. I have no many coins for certain towns and all my stuff is upgraded to there’s nothing left to do with those coins? Maybe have a currency trading of some sort? And it’s crap that we can’t change coins into rubies. Overall I like playing the game a lot but these improvements would make it so much less frustrating and way more enjoyable.
I love it, but...
by Toke777 on 2018/10/26 07:29
There are only a two sections (5 restaurants in the first section, 6 in the second), so if you play this like I did you’re done with what’s available WAAAAAAY before you want to be. When I go back to the first section there’s one location where I can’t get the side ingredients on the items I need, therefore I can not complete the achievements. There’s currently an event going on for Halloween which is cool and all but shouldn’t you be working on the full game play before you do an event that lasts a month? I appreciate that it’s not too difficult to get rubies (just don’t expect to get enough to buy everything), but the ratio of how much they go up as you upgrade feels disproportionate. I know you need to make money, but I’ve deleted games that make it this hard to advance. I feel like all the upgrades for the restaurants outside of the food and interior should not include rubies in their prices since I already always buy rubies when you offer the “one time deals” during gameplay so I can buy all the things I need for the ingredients and interior to help me with gameplay. I do love it, but those are my issues and the reason it won’t get 5 stars from me.
Recent Flaws within game otherwise my rating has always been a 5!
by Fair game play on 2020/08/14 13:58
Enjoyable game play rated at a 5 but would rate it at a 1 for odd in game losses through no fault of the player. I absolutely love love love cooking diary!! I have had this game for 2 years now. I have been noticing that recently there seems to be some scheming in the game. For example there are delays in customers to where your time is ticking away and the customers don’t show right until you have 1 second of play time left which means you really aren’t getting the amount of customers you’re supposed to during the level. Another example, when you have to serve a certain amount of drinks say for instance 7 but you only get 6 customers requesting drinks. Doesn’t seem quite right especially when the player serves all the customers. In the end these in game cheats force you to just give up or choose to use 20 gems to add additional customers. I played a level 4 times thinking maybe it was just me but realized that the level was set up to where you fail and hopefully get frustrated enough to use gems or just don’t realize the developers purposefully didn’t give enough customers. I hope this “issue” is fixed because I love this game and would hate to delete the game.
