Fun but very expensive
by cdubssss on 2020/02/17 13:47
The game is fun but when you play more than one venue it gets really expensive and the apps creators are very cheap with prizes and gold
Great game
by rucke1 on 2020/02/15 13:34
Awesome
Long time player
by Mommaof2TX on 2020/02/13 01:53
I had some issues, but a new support assistant helped and made it right. Give this game a go, it’s hard but oh so fun!!
Crashes
by LeleAllDayErryday on 2020/02/11 22:07
I was enjoying this app til it started crashing. Please fix ur bugs!!!!
Garbage game
by Chiefjazz on 2020/02/09 13:31
Used to be a great game, but now it keeps crashing and lose what you’ve earned. And can’t earn more than 2-3 gold per day. No videos to watch anymore, must have lost their advertisers. Uninstalling
Too much pay to play
by Mike Divine on 2020/02/08 19:37
Either charge me $5 for the game and let me play or let me play without having to spend money unless I want to. I’ve played the game quite a bit for the last week or so but I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t earn enough gold bars even by watching your ads for 1 at a time and then cut off from doing that for a long while. I’ll have to delete the app and invest my time in other games. Take a look at supercells model and figure out how to keep people invested and spend money on it.
What on earth is going on with this app
by Newwyorkkkk7 on 2020/02/07 01:38
Why can’t I ever earn more gold, but have millions of coins? Why is it so hard to upgrade appliances because they need more gold than coins? Trial of Style is an absolute mess and so are the new features like pets and etc. There is too much going on without any consistency. This app used to be great but now it’s a disaster.
Love this Game but,,,,,
by Dianna34 on 2020/02/06 15:07
I love this game and would give it 5 stars, but this game is also very frustrating. I have been playing it for a few years now and have come to realize it’s almost impossible to advance without buying gold. The Trial of Style is always fun and I look forward to each new one, but it’s really frustrating when you spend two days waiting on a VIP character to finish, and have it lost in Trial of Style because the time quickly runs out and it’s wasted. I think I will find myself another game to enjoy 😔
Game is fun but buggy
by panda4563217 on 2020/02/06 04:53
I love the dinerdash series and I started playing the game for the first time today. I love this game, the levels are creative and entertaining.. but there have been certain levels that I click on that has been closing out the app altogether. This is making the game difficult to advance. Besides the bugs the game is fun.
Rip off
by MVC1176 on 2020/02/05 20:06
If you get a new phone, or have to download this app again it will start you from the beginning so all of the money you spent disappears. What a freaking rip off!
Bittersweet
by Murderlina Farruggio on 2020/02/05 18:19
If you want a game you play a flat rate for, that's super fun, go with the Delicious/Emily games, $10 is all you pay per game, and they are amazing quality fun. Cooking Dash was way more fun when the graphics weren't the best, yet you could still enjoy without pumping constant money into it. The moment this game is going anywhere near $10 I'm deleting it. Other than that, yeah the graphics are amazing and it's kind of fun. Edit: how are apps able to get majority of reviews so high? Is Apple really letting them scam for high reviews? Not a good look.
Love This Game!! Super Fun!!
by iamrazed on 2020/02/03 18:25
I am a fan of Diner Dash games. I’ve been playing since the very first version of Diner Dash. The latest Cooking Dash installment is the best of all their versions of Flo and her Diner Dash series. Honorable Mentions - the original Cooking Dash, Diner Dash: Flo on the Go AND Cooking Dash: Diner Town Studios. These are must-trys. Back to the review. Yes, you will be need to use your own money to get the game started. TIPS: 1) Buy 300 gold in the bundle and get started. Start with small upgrades that are absolutely necessary. In the Prep Kitchen, get the Auto Chef, Time Bonuses, and Fast Flow (or any combo of the other prep kitchen chefs) and play! Keep all the chefs in rotation especially the Auto Chef and it will help you advance. Find more tips online in how to beat each level effectively! Good luck! 2) If you come across a glitch or other issues while playing, click on the round orange button on the bottom right then Customer Care (green button in the middle). You can look and find answers through their Q&A board or click on Contact Us on the very upper right corner and send them your questions/issues. I have taken a brief break from the game, but now back to speed with “I’m Really Inuit,” “Jungle Joint,” and “Pad Thai Pinball.” Cooking Dash is a super fun game (challenging at times) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
I miss the old one
by jrdhdhsjshfjidjdjxjrugsgdugh on 2020/02/03 01:31
Can u make the old version? No video game is like the first one
Waiting for an answer from tech support
by Deed75 on 2020/02/02 14:57
I’ve been playing this for years. All of my progress was lost. The game Somehow reset itself. I never did. I was logged into the game through Facebook as well. It’s so frustrating. The game crashed frequently as well and they don’t update frequently.
Don’t bother - not updated
by sunnyb5678 on 2020/02/01 17:33
This used to be a great game. You have to soend a lot of money on it which I did. Now it’s not updated, doesn’t always open the venues, has too many glitches to list and will take your gold when it glitches. Time to move on and not to the new diner dash which is awful
Going downhill...
by beholdthehurrikate on 2020/01/31 20:53
I've been playing Cooking Dash for years (at least 5). Which does mean I've spent a bit of real world money...and I'm not sure where it goes. Certainly not to a tech team because there are bugs everywhere. Premonition recipes now make it harder because they glitch, there are many spelling errors, and while new levels are added consistently you need to be able to spend $20-$50 USD to get 5 stars on each. There aren't enough free gold ads to watch for gold. Really disappointing (Please fix prepmonition recipes!)
Fun but too much stuff
by Channie113 on 2020/01/29 21:29
The only thing stopping me from giving this a five star review is that there are too many bells and whistles. I just want to cook the food and servebit, not worry about her outfit, gold bars and other crap.
Not playing it over again
by Dragonwriter72 on 2020/01/27 00:11
I had started a new game because I didn’t like where I was on my old one. So I was playing merrily along then all of a sudden, a white screen came on and wouldn’t go off. Not even several minutes or an hour later. So I deleted it and redownloaded. Now it wants me to start all over again. Not happening. I’m very unhappy.
Love playing but...
by TrishMCT on 2020/01/26 20:10
Love this game, but they want you to spend too much money to keep playing. Can’t get upgrades without gold. They just want you to spend $$$$$ to get it. Too bad
Loading
by Casanovete on 2020/01/26 04:39
I absolutely love this but lately it has been loading every 30 minutes to hour. So I have to wait for the game to load and then I can play. Is there an update to stop this? Its becoming very annoying. And sometimes causes me to not want to play.
Best game ever
by ibrahim0223 on 2020/01/25 06:14
I really love this game
FIX THE VIDEO ADS!
by Brigitte Nicole on 2020/01/24 02:52
I am getting really sick of the video ads freezing on me and then I lose the gold-earning opportunity. I lost FIVE golds today because the videos keep freezing on me, so I have to kill and restart the app. PLEASE fix. The gold bars are already so rarely given in this game.
Way too expensive
by Grandprix4 on 2020/01/24 02:50
I’ve played this game for years. I even purchased diner dash on a disc before you could download games. However, this new cooking dash is ridiculous. No matter how good you are at this game, you will never pass the levels without spending a lot of $$$ having to buy gold and tickets. Maybe they should be a little less greedy. The game isn’t fun anymore because skill doesn’t matter. I would rather just purchase a game but, of course, they wouldn’t be making all this money selling supplies. Even the venues have become stupid, especially the baseball one. Nothing works fast enough unless you buy upgrades for everything.
Bugs
by elin2345 on 2020/01/22 02:56
It was working great at first. Then all of a sudden it stoped working and now it never loads. I will have to delete and since I will lose all the progress I will not install again.
Mehhh
by beeutiful715 on 2020/01/21 20:59
This is a fun and enjoyable game in my opinion. It's addicting and passes time. With that said to move through levels one must make SEVERAL purchases. Also the game has prep recipes that are boosters that take hours to "prep" before you can use them in a game. My game constantly glitches out and when I first started telling "customer service" about them they would compensate me in gold or prep recipes I had lost, now they find every excuse to blame me, my phone or connection and simply apologize. I do not make this stuff up to them just sick of paying for this game and never being able to play....They used to offer prizes over the holidays and don’t do that anymore either. This game is just a money trap with bs “customer service” well candy crush never crashes ✌🏾
Update???
by ToniWoosah on 2020/01/21 06:46
I love this game. I don’t even mind spending real money on it. But can we get an update? When are you all going to update and create more restaurants?
Do not delete this game
by Nuts about this on 2020/01/20 13:40
I’ve been playing for some time now and really enjoy the game BUT it was deleted by accident and now I’ve lost all my progress!! Contacting support is not helpful.. still have not addressed my issue.. shame,, I guess I won’t be playing anymore
Fail to download
by Shshdancer on 2020/01/20 04:53
I’ve played this game for several years and loved it, owned many restaurants and had more coins than I could have ever used. A few months ago it started every time I opening it saying it failed to download check internet connection...every.single.time I opened the game! So frustrating. I finally decided to delete the game and reinstall it hoping that works fix it. Well it didn’t and now I’m back at square one with no coins and no restaurants. Y’all are losing players left and right judging by the other recent reviews. What the heck?!?!
Awesome!!
by Gamer Girl 13 🎮😉 on 2020/01/19 15:04
Awesome, addicting game! No ads, no interruptions! Just a fun, strategic, and addicting game! Love it!
Bad update
by Sunshine1288 on 2020/01/17 11:57
I used to love playing this game day in and day out; however, things change. Your latest update has me downloading restaurants that I’ve had for years now every time I open the app. It’s ridiculous and annoying. Please fix!
Cost a lot of money
by Kristin Scimenes on 2020/01/16 18:32
You won’t get anywhere in the game unless you spend a bunch of money. I rather buy the game than be spending money everyday just to play. Stupid.
Always downloading
by kiradanielle on 2020/01/15 18:52
I used to love this game but recently every time I try to open it, it has to re-download all of the venues all over again. I don’t have the time or patience to wait. I keep it on my phone in hopes that this problem will resolve but so far, it hasn’t. I’ve spent a lot of money on this game and am pretty upset.
Fun times
by ✨🌟✨A✨🌟✨ on 2020/01/14 03:49

Ok game, costs too many rare resources, poor customer service
by GardenOfSimple on 2020/01/12 03:37
The game is fine, but requires expensive power ups in order to complete many levels. And then the customer service won’t even do return an in-game item when the game glitches causing you to have wasted many resources. Deleting. Good riddance .
Freezes all the time
by Sassi3081 on 2020/01/11 16:06
Free play and quick flo never works. Used to love game but now it’s a headache because the things I look forward to doesn’t work. I can use a boost and the game will just crash so not only is my boost gone but also my 10 supplies
This game is weird
by amazingsomeboy on 2020/01/08 20:38
It is very fraudulent and I am disappointed in glu. The game starts good at first but deteriorates in the middle
App glitching out on certain level
by Maria🖤🖤 on 2020/01/08 19:01
I love the game I’ve always loved anything “Diner Dash” related, but on “Table Steaks” season 2 episode 8 whenever I click on the level it glitches to the home screen and that’s the only level it’s does that on.
Bad
by L Jean Grace on 2020/01/08 12:26
Im gonna uninstall this app!!! Every I’d play this game its getting automatic quit!!! After you wait the active boost for a long time then that will happen?! Many times that has happened. Im so fun to play this game but now it’s so really annoying!!

Game messing up
by Lastarra on 2020/01/03 16:01
So I really love this game and have been playing it for years and for the last couple of months the game been having some type of glitch in it where it’s almost like it’s cheating and won’t let me serve customers I would have gave you guys a 5star rating but this glitch is pissing me off
Love it!
by CatDac on 2020/01/03 13:32
Challenging and not as easy as the older version
Cooking up fun!
by LRC06 on 2020/01/03 06:59
The Dashes have done it again. This game is great. There’s tons of levels, and tasks, and your ability to play (groceries) turns over quickly. I’ve played before on my iPad a dim happy I downloaded it again for my phone.
Very upset.
by $madelyn$ on 2020/01/03 03:37
This game is ok. It’s so much different than what it used to be. But what I’m REALLY mad about is that the creators are to lazy to update Hotel Dash and Wedding Dash on iPhone XR. It won’t download. AND..... this game doesn’t work very well. I am extremely irritated😡😑
Esta entretenido

Love the game but expensive
by jdvanhook on 2020/01/01 00:27
I love playing this game and opening new restaurants but it takes way too much time to build up gold to be able to do that and upgrade the restaurant to progress. Not nearly enough opportunities to earn free gold as there is in Restaurant Dash.
Upgrades are too expensive

Why does it keep crashing
by Mizz.Absolute on 2019/12/31 15:43
I’ve been playing this game for a very long time now..YEARS to be exact! I love the game but lately it just keeps crashing and it’s nerve wrecking especially when I’m trying to win a level and always end up losing the VIP characters that I’ve waited hours and days to use that just end up disappearing because of the constant crashing. Please fix it!
Love/hate
by stefy123483)3)3) on 2019/12/31 02:49
Love this game. But I hate all the ads and how you have you buy everything with your own real money to unlock stuff
It’s not download it keep saying internet connection
by Achiicka on 2019/12/30 17:56
And I have internet connection even when I’m connected to WiFi . So I don’t understand this issue
Nice game but unskippable and traumatic ads make it difficult to play
by endtraumaticads on 2019/12/30 04:26
I love the game but the constant ads are annoying. Sometimes there’s an ad that can’t be closed or ended without completely closing out the game which is frustrating. The worst though is an ad that is especially traumatic for me where a woman finds out she’s pregnant, tells the father who immediately leaves her and she’s left alone and sobbing on a porch. This ad triggers me so severely that I have to exit the game every time I see it and not play again for a few days. If there’s no way to exit the ad at least have an option for people like me to stop seeing it and see some other ad instead.
It was cool until the updates added ads. Delete this
by Beyond | Trendy on 2019/12/29 02:45
I hate in ads on a game. I can pay for coins or other things but don’t put unnecessary ads in the middle of my game.
Lost all progress
by twyztedgothik on 2019/12/29 00:34
I used to play this game all the time and spent quite a bit of real money (yeah, I know), but after getting a new phone and downloading again I lost all progress and all the money wasted! After submitting a help ticket and having several different people “taking over” my ticket I was told a couple of times that the problem was fixed.... it was not. Deleting the app, redownloading, reconnecting to my fb account, nothing fixed, I feel even sillier to have spent hard earned money on a game that I used to love. My advice, play casually, don’t give them any money, and/or don’t upgrade your phone.
Crashes
by she2346 on 2019/12/27 21:47
Won’t stop crashing. Went through the trouble of writing them to let them know and get some sort of answer. Before you write to customer service it instructs you to not have any other apps open as well as a few things... I did all of that and let them know I had done this already. Their answer was just those same instructions again.... didn’t even want to fix the issue. Deleting and never downloading again. Poor service that I could have read on the FAQ page... so what the point of customer service or contacting them to fix their app🤷🏼‍♀️
No internet connection
by kerirogers on 2019/12/27 01:26
It keeps saying that there is no internet connection so I can’t get onto the store or down load the next . My internet connection is fine because none of my other apps have had any issues
Getting boring

For the past few days, every time I log on, it tells me I don’t have a connection and the game has to re-download EVERY venue. What is happening?!
Failed to download
by Sarahjane616 on 2019/12/17 16:43
Upon opening the game, I’ve been (sporadically) getting an error message, failed to download content, with a retry option. I then have to have the game open and screen on while each restaurant downloads. It happened 2 separate times today. It is not my internet connection. It’s time consuming and unnecessary and I will eventually just stop playing. Nobody has time for that.
Lost history

Annoyed with Game
by Athena7043 on 2019/12/17 01:21
This game is fun and I enjoy wasting my time playing it. How we of you have any sort of life This game isn’t for you. If you earn rewards and don’t play for even a week it takes things away from you. I have played for over a year and I am done. You will earn what they call a saucer but if you don’t play during there special event they take one one away from you and it is impossible to earn it back. For example with the thanksgiving event I lost a saucer by only playing 2/3 events and will not be able to earn it back till next year. After a year of playing I am not much higher in points then I was a year ago. It’s hard to earn things without spending tons of money. I don’t recommend this game.
Too Challenging and Not Enough Time
by onliiistarstar on 2019/12/16 12:30
Everything cost gold & it takes along time to gain coins from customers. The only African American girl on the game gets upset very quickly. You don’t have enough time to make the orders when you have to prepare everything such as the tortillas and drinks and still make the food. So that takes up most of your time. Aside from that you do all this hard work to at least get one star and coins and they still ask for gold to upgrade. This app takes and doesn’t give unless you watch along video. Makes me not even want to spend money on it.
Update game
by Essence_C on 2019/12/10 21:53
I have been playing this game for a while now and everything a ad pops up it makes the game crash and takes me back to my phones home screen , it has done that to me 6 times already today and I barely started playing . It often makes me lose the reward I was going to get Or if I’m in a level it will make me start it all over. It’s very frustrating
Re-downloads every time
by MommytoAandK on 2019/12/09 14:32
This game desperately needs an update. Every time I close the game it loses all of its info. I like the game itself but this needs to be fixed.
Impossible to pass levels
by Skdunn on 2019/12/09 01:53
I used to play this game and loved it a few years ago and I recently downloaded it again and it’s not even enjoyable like it used to be. It’s a fun game but whoever changed it, made it to where it’s almost impossible to even get one star to go to the next level in only season 2. You’d have to keep buying gold bars to buy the Fast Flo to go fast enough to serve customers. Such a joke.

This app is not to challenging but NEEDS to be renovated. We need more time to serve customers. PLEASE RENOVATE THIS APP QUICKLY BEFORE IT IS TO LATE. ( THIS APP IS TO CHALLENGING)
Fun game play, hard to progress
by Sassycassy343 on 2019/12/05 16:23
I love this game. There are so many fun levels that are uniquely themed and just overall super cute. The only thing is that it is nearly impossible to progress. Unlike Restaurant Dash with Gordon Ramsey, you hardly get any coins per level. And in Restaurant Dash, you can build up Gordon to immediately clear the customers you have in store, which helps earn more coins. Cooking Dash doesn’t have any sort of boost like that. So without earning more coins per level, you can’t purchase upgrades and then you just get stuck. I’ve honestly stopped playing because of that. But I’d like to play more, I’m just tired of playing the same levels over and over again trying to earn more to move on. Oh well, maybe the creators will finally update after all of the complaints🤷🏽‍♀️

As soon as you make a purchase, they will do an update to get you to spend more money. They'll change the level of difficulty.
Can’t get gold
by MustLoveGames on 2019/12/01 08:56
I actually do enjoy the game itself, but you can’t get gold to upgrade. The ads don’t work majority of the time to earn gold and the other means to get gold don’t work either. Can’t finish daily goals a lot of the time since watching ads for gold doesn’t work. Will be uninstalling unless it gets fixed soon. It’s also dumb that the groceries only go to 50 when you level up (each play costs 10). In other words, I could be almost out of groceries and level up so get 50 more and get to play 5 more additional times (10 total) OR I could only level up right when I start playing (6 total).

I really like playing this game, but it glitches constantly and you lose groceries and VIPs, which are hard to come by. Wish they could fix this issue.
Downhill all the way
by Scotmom22 on 2019/11/28 14:00
I’ve been playing this game for years. It started off as good, mindless fun. Recently it has gotten so bad it’s not even funny. A regular daily challenge is to watch 3 ads for gold (today I have to watch 4). Yet these ads frequently crash, or are simply not available to watch. So not only do I not get gold from the ads, but I don’t get to complete the daily challenge for gold either. When I contacted support I was told that, honestly it’s not their fault, I’m probably just not their demographic target. Yeah, okay. They don’t want my money...hmmmmm. I spend what gold I have for expensive upgrades that make no difference to the star total afterwards. It’s becoming impossible to complete levels. How this game is sitting with a 4.7 out of 5 rating is beyond me. I’ll go be mindless elsewhere lol!!
So addictive

I play this game everyday and I love it...cannot go a day without it!!
HORRIBLE TROUBLESHOOTING!!
by Kimber A. on 2019/11/27 23:49
I have been playing this game for 3 years. I have spent over $75 on in-app purchases. The game can be fun. However the latest iOS update (13) caused several issues on my phone and required me to restore my phone from a back-up as well as reset network settings multiple times. Now I have lost ALL progress I have made in Cooking Dash along with all the restaurants I purchased, gold, coins, etc. EVERYTHING is gone and glu.com keeps asking me for my Trial of Style user name and without that nothing can be done!! HORRIBLE TROUBLESHOOTING!! Every other game I play restored my history, progress and purchases. Cooking Dash is only one who cannot!!!!
Old version was better
by Brbate on 2019/11/26 14:54
This game is ridiculous. It used to be fun and I’d play for hours. Now with the update you can only play for so long because you have to wait for your groceries/lives to refill to play and it’s ten grocery and it’s takes four minutes for each. If I have payed money for a game I better be able to play it whenever I please. And then some of the upgrades you are forced to use the gold coins for but you don’t get a lot of those. The older version I earned more money a plate and could use it for everything. And what happened to all the other versions of this, wedding dash, hotel dash, soap opera dash, parking lot dash. Then again if you trash those games like you did these maybe they aren’t worth updating. Thanks for ruining one of my favorite games. Can I get the older versions back? Those I recommend to people. This I just can’t.
DO NOT PLAY
by FurrenParagon on 2019/11/21 03:13
Originally this game can be fun. You start off, you pass through levels and upgrade just fine. Really the only thing saving this game as a two star in my book is the variety it has. But if you don’t want to spend money on an iPhone game, run away from this one. It will cheat you out of as much gold (needed for any upgrades or new stores) as it can. Plus it will randomly advertise at you once you are out of your playing portion of the game. You will perform a level and then you better hope you don’t get another ad. At this point I myself have been cheated out of over 100 gold and counting. If you can pay to play, go on ahead. Otherwise I hope you like to crawl through gameplay.
Pay to play, pay to win, and ads
by OhioSean on 2019/11/19 07:41
You have to pay to play this game (other than in short bursts). You realistically have to pay to buy items that make it possible to progress. And then the developers also force you to watch really, really terrible advertisements. To ensure the absolute worst experience for people who enjoy these games, the dev apparently stopped updating the original so people have to “upgrade” to this steaming pile. I’m out.
Super Glitchy Lately
by RLD23 on 2019/11/18 20:37
I have been playing this game for years and have loved it, but lately it’s super glitchy!!! I should have got Halloween wheels for the Halloween event and didn’t, even after communicating with customer support. I don’t get my prizes after the event is over. This is very frustrating!!! This has never happened before! What’s going on... not sure I would play this again.
Love this game but crazy expense.
by SRG302 on 2019/11/18 00:36
I truly love all the levels and unlocking everything. The problem is their are so many cooking restaurants and each will run you about 60 dollars in real money to completely beat. It is entirely too expensive and I have never replayed a game that costs this much with little specials.
Too expensive
by 233fox on 2019/11/17 22:37
For what you pay it’s not worth it
Love this game
by Ellie357 on 2019/11/16 17:38
I love this game. Each restaurant has its own challenge, you need to use your memory to remember how to cook each item. The only thing I don’t like is the fact you need gold to buy a lot of things. To obtain the amount of goal you need you have to wait for free abs each day or pay.
Genuinely happy with this game
by wax_idiotic on 2019/11/15 05:41
I’ve been playing for well over a year now, and I’m still playing every day. Recently I had an issue with rewards from an event, and less than 12 hours after contacting customer support with my screenshots, I received my rewards.. plus extra. I have spent actual money on this game, maybe around $10, but I see that as worth it. They give more than enough opportunities to earn stuff for free, so spending money isn’t even necessary. And on a random note, I’ve found that playing with a stylus is helpful on the tougher levels. It’s more precise than a finger, and I don’t end up selecting the wrong ingredients. 🤗
Please fix this
by Du€|< on 2019/11/14 02:39
Let me start by saying I absolutely love this game! It’s honestly an addiction. And the problem I have, isn’t a very large, one but one I’m sure a lot of people can agree on. Some of these levels, I feel are designed to make it impossible to get five stars in. I have played games multiple times in a row. 5-6. With different boosts and recipes. But yet I’m not given enough coins to make it to five stars. I’ve tried getting them by collecting coins in tip bonuses. And nothing. Now I’m OCD, and obsessive. I like to see five golden stars on each of my levels. I feel as if all customers are served, an extra boost of coins should be added to help possibly get to the five stars if close enough. Other then that, I very much enjoy this game. And I have been obsessed since I was a kid. If this is fixed, I will definitely give it five stars.
My opinion
by MarCar13 on 2019/11/13 17:38
The amount of gold bars needed to upgrade food, speed...etc is way to high, while the amount of gold bars you are credited are only 1-2 at a time.
Glitches
by Aud325 on 2019/11/12 04:45
This is a very fun game and I have spent a lot of money on gold bars, BUT several times this game has glitched when I have started a level. I always lose the “special” VIP bonus. I have won the trial of style series multiplayers times and have not received my reward. Not happy with the amount of money I have spent on this.
Exciting and vexing
by mm3027219 on 2019/11/09 04:21
This game is ridiculously addictive to the point where I have invested my feelings into it 😂. I have gotten so mad, I’ve thrown my phone at the wall. I’ve also gotten so sad about losing that I have actually been sad all day. On the bright side, I have had actual fun playing this and have been playing it for years. Like someone else said in the reviews, it is hard to not spend your actual money to get anywhere in this game.
You have to buy gold
by kbuedb on 2019/11/06 21:34
To complete all of the levels you will need to purchase gold.
Lack of customer support
by DW disappointed on 2019/11/06 15:45
I won their last Halloween Tournament (TOS) and I wasn’t awarded my prize. I used the in game contact us feature and that appears to not be working. I couldn’t upload my screenshot proof. I didn’t get an acknowledgement that they received what I posted. I used to get an acknowledgement within 24 hours, usually sooner.
Don’t abandon us!
by HeidiFish1 on 2019/11/06 01:41
I love this game and have been playing since it was called “Cooking Dash 2016”, but the support for the game from Glu is mostly gone, and there are no new venues or new challenges or games or surprises.
A bunch of glitches
by Serena Nicole on 2019/11/06 01:25
And no available videos for gold ever??? Do they not care some people have played this game for years spent tons of money? What a great way to show your appreciation to your customers Still glitching steals your time and money! 👎
I love the game
by ShavyT on 2017/11/23 01:09
I’ve read quit a lot of reviews and here’s what I have. First of all- I don’t try to earn gold by doing anything that takes me out of the app. I only watch the commercials. Secondly, I used to see that even after watching the commercials I wouldn’t get my gold. Here’s the thing- I’ve realized that after the commercial is over, you have to wait a second till the pop up says you’ve earned your gold. I’m pretty far along in the game- I’m up to level 93. I really enjoy it. Yes, the price of upgrades has gone up but you also have the chance of earning 3 gold bars a day. That helps. I’ve also learned to use my upgrades wisely and not just spend so I can get to the next level. I have never spent a single dollar on this game. Ever. And I never will. I have not downloaded the newest upgrade because last time this kind of thing came up it looked WILDLY complicated. The spinning, the dressing, who cares?? I just wanna run restaurants. I was so glad to see it go away last time. I have almost 2 million coins. I want the offers to but surprise gifts with coins!!
Love/Hate
by KelseyNova on 2017/11/25 21:28
I love this game. The game play is so fun, the characters are entertaining, there&#39;s A LOT you can unlock and do, it&#39;s mostly an awesome game! However, it really is very difficult to get anywhere without spending real world money. At first, it seems easy to gain gold bars, complete levels, unlock necessary and helpful upgrades, etc. But the more you play, the less you see. For instance, I completed the first restaurant (Table Steaks - all three seasons) with ease and managed to get 5 stars on every level with little help. I have since purchased Taco Train and find it impossible to get 5 stars on the majority of levels without VIPs, which cost gold as do upgrades to the restaurant, plus coins and only gaining a couple stars per level, I&#39;m not getting many coins either. So no matter what I do, even using gold to buy things to help, I&#39;m getting nowhere. I purchased the vegan restaurant next, even WITH upgrade, VIPs, serving all customers quick and efficiently I&#39;m only able to get 2-3 stars per episode. Why is that? I feel like the work I&#39;m putting into each level is monumental compared to the rewards. I&#39;d spend real money on this game if I felt like it would actually help but to be honest, I don&#39;t think it will. And lastly, I&#39;ve only been playing this game for about a week, maybe not even that long, at first I didn&#39;t notice many ads. Now all of a sudden there are video ads that pop up frequently and oftentimes crash the game.
Expensive and time consuming
by Bwilli34 on 2017/12/17 13:05
This game is fun to play but they&#39;ve designed it to make it VERY difficult to earn gold...... which you have to have to buy upgrades to win the levels. The upgrades are super expensive compared to the gold you can earn without using your real, hard earned money to buy more. The prep kitchen recipes you need to really win levels take hours and days to prep (no joke people.... 20 hours, 14 hours, 2 days, etc.). You can earn “free gold” by watching 30 second videos or completing other tasks tasks. BE WARNED....... this process can be glitchy and even though you did your part, you won’t get your gold. Don’t bother contacting customer service, “It’s beyond their control”. Free gold is handled by a third party and they “have no control over it”. They are super great about telling you how it’s all your fault though ( your device doesn’t have enough memory, your bandwidth isn’t good enough, etc), AND, they will NEVER offer to give you anything free in return for all your trouble. They are even good enough to tell you that you can uninstall your game and reinstall it to solve any glitching and everything will be great b/c they have a backup of your game saved..... BE WARNED!!!!! THEY DON’T!!!! Customer care is a joke!!! My 4 year old is more helpful. You will lose everything for good. Very hard lesson learned here. A LOT of time and energy wasted. DON&#39;t WASTE YOUR TIME PEOPLE! I will be deleting this game as soon as I hit send!
No reward for watching videos
by ATMM16 on 2017/12/05 07:42
Another update: The problems I stated below still haven&#39;t been fixed and yet there&#39;s a bug for the daily goals. Today, I completed all 3 daily goals and was supposed to get the wheel spin prize. However, at the daily goals page, it says I only completed 1 out of 3 goals when obviously I completed 3. Developers really need to read all these reviews and fix these problems or else people might stop playing your game. Update: I started a game at Medieval Dines: Bavaria Fest, but just seconds after I started the game, it forced me out of that level and the supplies and VIP I used were lost. The game itself didn&#39;t crash, but there&#39;s just this small glitch that forces back out of the level I&#39;m playing, I don&#39;t know if it&#39;s only this certain level or the game itself. Please fix this error. It used to be guaranteed a gold or amount of time to prep recipes reduced. But now every time I watch a video to earn gold or to reduce the time to prep recipes, I never receive the gold or the amount of time to prepare recipes stays the same. Developers need to recognize this bug in the game and fix it. Players wouldn&#39;t want to waste time watching videos just to get nothing back in return. They also need to realize that gold is very hard to get, everything costs a lot of gold as you unlock more restaurants, but gold being rewarded is not enough for even 1 upgrade. This needs to be fixed in order for players to enjoy the game.
Fun but fraudulent
by -Anonymous_ on 2017/08/31 23:27
First off your not gonna get anywhere or complete anything in the game without spending money; which I wouldn&#39;t mind doing from time to time if I didn&#39;t get lied to by free offers. Several times I have wasted my precious time completing these offers only to not get rewarded and then customer support refuses to payout, even when they realize you have in fact completed the offer. After the last time, I refused to download or play this game any longer. But the game is fun if you have the money to spend or actually get your rewards; and so I thought you know, maybe I gave up on Fyber too early. I came back and completed an offer for which you had to reach level 10 in final fantasy. If you&#39;ve played final fantasy or any game like it you know how long it takes to reach level 10 or upgrade anything to level 10. It took me three days only to not receive my rewards. When contacting customer support they refused to payout claiming that they paid out when I reached level 6. However I only got 82 when the original reward was 500. Now I come on here to read the reviews and see if anyone else feels the same way and holy cow, everyone does! Please fyber if your not gonna value people&#39;s time money or even interest in your game, just take it off the market. I will be deleting and not playing anymore and letting everyone know about the long shortcomings of this game. I mean come on, it&#39;s getting pretty disrespectful.
False advertising
by Squishie2016 on 2019/05/27 07:59
As others have said, the game itself is fun. In order to get to new levels you need lots of gold. You need it to upgrade your restaurant. You can purchase gold with real money or there are, “Free” offers. These are managed by an unethical company, TapJoy. Free offers are usually very time consuming. If you want your reward you need to screenshot everything, even with doing that they will not always give you your rewards. There are several misleading and fraudulent advertisements on the site. It will say, enter an e-mail and answer a short survey. That short survey is never ending and takes you to a million more questions, prompting you to give them all your information and trying to sell you a multitude of items. One offer was to download a game and get to a certain level. It took me a month as the game was awful, then I never got my reward. Then I downloaded Tinder for a free two day trial. Tinder required my credit card information. Fine. I was charged three times, by three different companies the first night (so no free trial).This caused my credit card company to put a fraud alert on my credit card. Tinder never gave me an account. Even with a screenshot of the charges, TapJoy would not give me my gold. They say to contact Tinder , who has yet to respond after a week. TapJoy doesn’t always respond either. GLU says, contact TapJoy. Seriously, considering deleting the game, depending on if I can ever get my issue resolved.
Glitches Give You Stitches
by SirKnowsALot on 2019/01/20 03:50
I was loving this game, becoming obsessed with it every time I started playing. Growing up with Diner Dash, this game was really exciting to have. Yet recently, the game glitches quite a few times. In order to play a round, you have to give in 10 grocery bags, like using a coin to play a game in an arcade. You have to be patient if you want more without having to pay for them. So I wait patiently all the time. But quite a few times, I used my grocery bags and I pressed play, and the game took me back to the main menu, where all the restaurants are. It made me upset, because it wouldn’t let me play, but it took the groceries I used to play as well... I keep playing, even though it happened 4 or five times more. But I became angry when I waited 6 hours for one of the power boosters that I prepared in the prep kitchen, and then used it to play and it did the same thing. I waited six entire hours. It’s probably just a glitch, but sometimes it feels as though that may be an intentional thing to get people to spend more money on a free app. I don’t like buying in-app purchases because if I ever lose my account, then what? And I was going to play with a booster just before writing this, and it did it again. This makes me furious, so I wouldn’t recommend this game until this problem gets fixed.
They never answer
by mommaT412 on 2019/05/19 23:57
I’ve been playing this game since Diner Dash. I love playing the games. However, you write them and the don’t answer. And if they do answer it’s usually some whack response. I have purchased gold, tickets, lives and venues using real money. I never asked for anything accept to fix my issues that I write you about. Another downside to this game is the take to long to put new venues out. I have played and mastered every venue. I have been waiting for months for them to unlock the Thai arcade venue. Please don’t get me started on those bug fixes that crashes my game. I ‘be been stuck on fame tier 99 since 2018. I wrote them they wrote back not addressing my issue. But some cockey mammy response. I say all of this to say if you’re just starting out. Find another time management game. They move too slow and cost a lot of money. You will get bored once you’re at my level. Just waiting for them to unlock a venue. If the game has come to an end they should say so. Very disappointed with the Glu team. Homescapes is a very good game try it.
Lost progress - bad customer services
by annoyedcustomer13 on 2018/08/30 15:00
I’ve been playing this game for a few years and I love it, but I’m about to delete it because of recent bugs and loss of progress with no help from customer service. I don’t mind spending some real money on it because it’s the only game I play. About a year ago, there must have been a bug in the game and I lost my progress, but customer service was amazing and helped me get it back to almost exactly where I was . HOWEVER, I just lost a significant amount of my progress from about a month of playing, including the new restaurant that I already bought and finished two seasons. I used lots of gold and valuable prep recipes to get that progress. Customer service eventually claimed they couldn’t detect any loss of progress, so could not compensate me. After all the time and money I spent on this game I find that unacceptable. I know they can see it from their end because it happened before! I’m still waiting for another response but I’m very disappointed.
Good bars are a must yet hard to come by
by miss_eyez87 on 2017/11/01 20:59
I have been playing this game for a few months now and I&#39;ve fallen in love with it, however the Gold wall where u go to get free food by completing different task doesn&#39;t always work and sometimes I&#39;ll break my neck to do a task waiting for hours to get my reward and a lot of time i don&#39;t. Also now the Gold wall to get coins isn&#39;t working it&#39;s been an issue all day. This game was once fun but it be better if the gold bars were a bit easier to come by especially when it comes to upgrades. I can already tell with this game that eventually I&#39;ll stop playing all together and delete the app you guys seem to take the fun out of it I don&#39;t want to spend real money on a game when the coins go so quickly please make it a bit easier or I&#39;ll just delete and free up some space on my phone. Update: what ever happend to the extra finale and “buying flo clothes” that you guys added on and took away? Why does the app take so long downloading restaurants I can’t even play the game because I have to wait for them to download I’m beginning to get tired of this game where I see myself deleting the app completely
Shame on Glu
by Calamities on 2019/05/12 16:51
2 stars because you can play about a week before you would wind up spending more and more money to progress. I’ve been playing for about 2 weeks, and I loved it, but I’m about to quit. The first level is easy to get through and basically free, but as you progress with each level, you need more and more gold. The offers to earn free gold will never be enough to allow progress at any reasonable level without spending money…and lots of it. I’ve forked over some cash—developers have to eat, companies need revenue—because it’s a fun game, but I’m curious how many people have gotten sucked into this game and had money sucked out of them because it’s so easy to purchase something with your thumb. I’m about done with this game. I’d pay a small amount for each restaurant, but if you monetize the amount of gold required to complete a restaurant based on the “purchase” to open it and upgrades, you’re looking at $2.99 per game and it will take you a several days earning free gold to get past the first season of restaurants after the 2nd one. Glu must be making money, but they may make more by considering reasonable price points that would encourage players to continue.
Money Hungary
by Sugar Sweet KC on 2018/08/19 20:54
This game is money Hungary. I’ve had this game since it came out and have had to reset it 50 plus times because no matter what you do, you can’t win. You spend tons of money and upgrade your tail off and still ya can’t win. It takes months to get anywhere and you can’t even barely win the competitions! I’ve almost fully upgraded restaurants and even bought the auto chef. And served everything fast and perfectly, still lose. Over and over. I used to waitress for 20 plus years, and bartended, too. I was the cook, waitress, chef maid and all, and I’m now a professional chef... They call me The Tasmanian devil, “Taz”... because I could spin circles in the restaurant and serve perfectly and speedy, and I was so smiley and chipper and made people’s day, they called me the perfect waitress. So I can run circles around this game and if in real life they were really the waiter,cook, chef, whatever, they could not run circles around me at all in the real world. And one more thing, if ya mess a plate up, in the real world you can set it down. And remake and wrap the food and save it or sell for someone who needs it. You can set it down, right? Well not in the game. Real not real world at all. I’ve found way better cooking games that don’t take your money and run.
Fun game but updates have cause crashes
by Sugartoes on 2018/02/28 20:06
I’ve been playing this game awhile now, and very recently have had issues with the game crashing while in the midst of a game. Customer service has attempted to assist but there solutions were to uninstall and reinstall and finally they removed the Trial style stating that the since they had new games going on that “could be” the problem, or my device, which is new they said it could be outdated. I’m disappointed that they just removed the trial style rather than leave it after all the time and games I’ve played and also made in-app purchases only to have it all lost! Thanks customer service for just throwing my gold down the drain.... players BEWARE!!!!! Expect to lose money with no real solution and or compensation. I don’t think they can even bring back the level reached which has all gone to WASTE! Thanks GLU! 🤬🤬🤬
Getting Fried
by RaVens HaVen on 2017/08/22 22:20
Ok, so I still like the game~but use to love it. Any and all updates mean you&#39;re going to pay if you want to enjoy the game to it&#39;s fullest..and of course, this is just wrong. I&#39;m not sure why the developers ask for feedback and reviews when it&#39;s pretty obvious to the players that you aren&#39;t listening...once you get the all mighty Facebook &#34;Like&#34; you seem to think your work is done. Not even close. Here&#39;s an example..You give us a great new ice cream restaurant to run with a hoppin, groovin auto chef who doesn&#39;t give you the correct ice cream to serve your current customer...nice. No matter how you try, you are either going to loose that customer or run out of time trying to get the right order from the chef as you can no longer choose which flavor you want once you have auto chef in play. So, I&#39;ve wasted my VIP, my regular and my 10 groceries...NUMEROUS TIMES. I could go on, but not worth any more of my time. Just beware when you play~it isn&#39;t all cake, there are a lot of brussel sprouts in there as well.
Long time cooking dash fan
by Mynicknamename2222214 on 2019/02/13 23:00
I am a long time fan of Flo and her games. I played the original diner dash and cooking dash iPhone games and beat them completely. That helps me understand why they have added so much to the game (keeps it fresh, theoretically). But it is very overwhelming as a new user. This stuff should be gated and introduced slowly as you unlock more levels. Also, after beating all of the intro restaurant, I have not earned enough to open a new one. I guess I should not have been upgrading my appliances and such. I agree with another reviewer who said it is very hard to play this game without spending money, and that is a major disappointment for me. I am the queen of playing games like this without ever spending real money. I usually just grind along and have slower progress. But that is just not possible in this game. I would gladly buy a version of this game that did not offer in-app purchases or all the dang ads (and yes- they were not very present at first and now it is after every dang level). But oh well. That is not offered. I was happy to see Flo again, but she’s about to get deleted.
Not what it used to be
by I want my gold!!!!! on 2017/09/03 11:25
I love this game. Absolutely love this game. I didn&#39;t mind spending the money to play this game until spending money on this game is the only option you have to get gold or further your game play. (Breathe). On a daily basis you used to be able to collect gold by watching these (expletive) videos. I&#39;d even supplement my habit by throwing money into the game for more gold (again, it&#39;s a great game). Now, if you&#39;re lucky when you watch a video you have a 50/50 chance of getting what they promised you&#39;d received. I don&#39;t know who to compare this relationship to a bad boss, a deadbeat dad (only read about them, mine is great) or a loser bf. Either way it&#39;s disappointing, sad and not what it used to be in the beginning. Yea, these developers are the loser bf. Imagine if we all packed our bags and left. Yes, we&#39;d sadly miss the abusive relationship but we&#39;d have a tad bit more money in our pockets and our self esteem in tact (lollll. We would no longer be subject to your lies. Wait, I have to spend 300 gold to open up the last celeb spot in Jamaican Me Hungry? My upgrades are all at 100 and that&#39;s the only thing preventing me from getting a perfect score. Kiss my (expletive).
Fun but ridiculous!
by bicha_unika on 2019/01/12 21:24
So let&#39;s start by saying I absolutely loved this game I came acrossed it from an add on another game and downloaded it immediately as it intrigued me right away! It started off very well and made sense now as I&#39;m trying to get past the first level I thought I was terrible at it and had to spend real life money just to get by. I came over to read the reviews to find its not me who is the problem it&#39;s the design of the game that sets you up to fail. I think if you&#39;re going to make a game it should make sense! For example why am I able to earn the stars &amp; coins necessary to get ahead no problem in the beginner levels but as it gets harder my reward is less? That makes no sense don&#39;t you think? Also, for as many VIP tickets you need to get passed tale steaks for your game to not help with rewarding those thru out the game is pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Hopefully after all the reviews that have been shared someone makes a change. I definitely won&#39;t be playing anymore since I now know it won&#39;t get me anywhere.
Nothing works
by reeen11 on 2018/10/06 06:47
Yes it’s fun. But as everyone else has been stating, it is super expensive if you want to advance to level 4 of a restaurant. It is really not about your skill at all, because the developer made it so that the only way you can move on to certain level is by upgrading either equipment or ingredients which is costly. Say you think you will play as fast as you can and memorize the sequence of food order, still you realize that you can’t move up if you do not upgrade. Other problem, I used to just play ad to get free gold (about 8 a day). Now the videos are not even working. So no more free gold... ridiculous. Here’s the break down. You will need about 750 gold at least to get min 3 golds on all level for 1 restaurant. That is about $50 plus some free gold. Multiply that with the number of restaurant, wow, you can actually buy a used car... Note, the program of the game is actually almost similar with all the restaurants. You were just given different setting, and ingredients, etc, n you are playing similar game over n over again. Pssst... And they think we don’t know that... We do. I’m writing this to campaign: not to feed the greeds...
Great game spoiled by issues
by *%^^#* on 2017/12/11 03:19
I absolutely loved every game with Flo, from Diner Dash Classic to Hotel Dash, so i decided Cooking Dash was worth a shot. The game is very fun; its layout is creative and the premise is challenging, but still enjoyable. The problems come in with glitches and game mechanics. Firstly, videos often do not give rewards as they as supposed to. Secondly, it is very hard to get anywhere after the first show/restaurant, Table Steaks. I was unable to get more than 1 star on many levels in the Eats for Earth restaurant even with upgrades. It is implied that you must spend real money to get anywhere in the game, which I (along with many other players) refuse to do. Thirdly, the game has glitches. I recently experienced a glitch where the game suddenly gave me (no exaggeration) 8,000,000 experience and leveled me up nonstop. I am unable to leave the Level Up screen, and I am unable to play the game any longer due to the inescapable screen. If this game was adjusted, it would easily earn 5 stars. However, due to its issues, it is only worthy of 2 stars. It’s a shame that such a good game is ruined by its monumental issues.
Can’t Progress Without Spending Money
by Pullkat on 2019/07/07 22:55
I really loved this game at first! If you spend on upgrades wisely, (not needed after every single level, only when you can’t complete a level with 3 stars) then the game is fairly easy but still challenging enough. I was able to complete all the levels in the first restaurant with full stars (can’t remember if it’s 3 or 5) but then before you can open a new restaurant, you have to do a series of 5 special levels. You spend VIP tickets to enter these levels. I failed on the 3rd round and it made me start over back to round 1. But the kicker is... I didn’t have enough VIP tickets to play again. So I went to the store to see if I could watch an add, trade my coins, or do anything to earn more tickets but the ONLY way to get them is to spend money. The least amount was $1.99 which isn’t bad, but I wondered how many other times this would happen where the only way to progress is to spend money. It starts to add up. So I decided to quit while I was ahead and deleted the game! Such a shame! Purchases should be optional for players who want to get ahead faster, not required for anyone who wants to play at all!
finally have to say i’m done with this game...
by newsoulwhodis on 2018/07/16 02:10
after playing on and off for about 3 years now, i’m deciding to put it down. plainly, it’s too money hungry. no matter how strategic your moves are, the game is formulated so that it’s impossible to get even 3 stars on some levels, much less the most desirable 5 stars. the only way to get them is by using gold to upgrade appliances and food worth etc. it has NOTHING to do with how good you are at playing after a while! it’s just a mind game! in-app purchases are constantly shoved in the players face, with crazy unrealistic expectations to obtain the stupid clothing/pet/auto chef wheel deal prizes. they continue to add restaurant after restaurant hoping to peak your interest to cash out another 25 gold just to unlock it, for you to inevitably find out that you’re beginning down a brand new cycle of having 0 upgrades. as a player, accept that you will NEVER complete every set of stars/golden saucers/outfit or whatever other set of accomplishments they put in front of you. ugh! i like fun mobile games and choosing to support companies through in-app purchases, but this not fun anymore!
Fun game...but. Terrible support and basic money gobbling app
by Nuña Biz on 2018/09/09 04:41
It’s fun. I like the game, and I never mind spend8ng money on apps that entertain me. That being said. Their support doesn’t know up from down. Takes days to respond and they don’t really read your questions. About the money grab aspect of the game. A. You can’t progress without spending money. Period. B. Half the stuff you ‘win’ in events you can’t even use cause their game is need of a serious update. Been playing the game for a year and since the last update months ago they made the ‘wheel’ unable to use. They keep creating events with awards for meeting milestones that are unavailable to use. It’s kinda ridiculous. And the support seems oblivious. Apparently they didn’t get the update in India. Idk. That being said.,..it’s a fun game. Spend 20/week and have plenty of entertainment. Great concept and moderately good game play. If they actually gave rewards that were usable I’d rate higher...but the principal if not being able to use a reward is irritating, hence the poor review. Just be warmed...
Love This Game!! Super Fun!!
by iamrazed on 2020/02/03 18:25
I am a fan of Diner Dash games. I’ve been playing since the very first version of Diner Dash. The latest Cooking Dash installment is the best of all their versions of Flo and her Diner Dash series. Honorable Mentions - the original Cooking Dash, Diner Dash: Flo on the Go AND Cooking Dash: Diner Town Studios. These are must-trys. Back to the review. Yes, you will be need to use your own money to get the game started. TIPS: 1) Buy 300 gold in the bundle and get started. Start with small upgrades that are absolutely necessary. In the Prep Kitchen, get the Auto Chef, Time Bonuses, and Fast Flow (or any combo of the other prep kitchen chefs) and play! Keep all the chefs in rotation especially the Auto Chef and it will help you advance. Find more tips online in how to beat each level effectively! Good luck! 2) If you come across a glitch or other issues while playing, click on the round orange button on the bottom right then Customer Care (green button in the middle). You can look and find answers through their Q&amp;A board or click on Contact Us on the very upper right corner and send them your questions/issues. I have taken a brief break from the game, but now back to speed with “I’m Really Inuit,” “Jungle Joint,” and “Pad Thai Pinball.” Cooking Dash is a super fun game (challenging at times) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Love the game, but the cost is insane
by Frankay101 on 2017/12/01 02:00
The new addition of the trial of style is the biggest waste of time, money, gold, etc. you work for days to complete these levels, and the top three places get the premium (not even the top) wheel spin. Below that, you get ONE fast flow or something even less valuable. It only takes 4 hours (or less) to prep fast flow. Why would I want to work through like 20 levels to just get that? It’s not worth it, and you can’t use coins or gold to get tickets, but you have to use an insane amount to get through the trial of style. If I were the game makers, I would highly reconsider the reward for that much game play. This game itself is ridiculously addicting. What’s annoying is the amount of money it takes. I’m almost embarrassed at the amount of money I’ve spent over time. PlayStation games with far better graphics and intense game play still only cost $50-60. One could easily pay $100 or more to fully enjoy this game. It’s just a little asinine.
We need more gold, not more gimmicks!
by Jeff Vader025 on 2017/12/16 19:09
I have been playing this game off and on for quite some time and overall this is a very good game. The problem with it is the fact that you need gold for absolutely everything! You can&#39;t even buy the most basic of upgrades without needing gold once you get past the first restaurant. In most other time management games I play the basic and absolutely essential upgrades can be bought with standard currency and the high end upgrades that makes things easier for you cost premium currency. So, now we can customize Flo&#39;s appearance with wardrobe items that are very hard to earn without spending more money? For the most part that just sounds like another gimmick to me. Give those of us on a budget what we really need.... more opportunities to earn free gold, so we can actually get somewhere and open more than just the first few restaurants!
Great game but...
by thenevman on 2018/02/04 16:39
This game is really fun to play, but Some of the restaurants that you can buy are way too expensive. Like some of the restaurants cost like 10,000 coins or more. Over time you will probably get that much coins to buy some of the restaurants but then by the time you get enough coins to buy a certain restaurant there would’ve already been like 5-10 other restaurants that you could buy that are close to the same price as the restaurant that you have been working on to get since the beginning. The main problem with this is that in episodes you don’t really get a lot of coins from customers. Overall though this is a great game and the episodes don’t really take long to Finnish so, this is a really fun game.
Money Grabbing
by Karbunny on 2018/02/10 22:30
This is a very fun game to play. The animation is wonderful. It’s fast pace and for those who need to relax, this is something to center your attention on. The levels increase as you go which is fun. The more you reach your level, the more you get. You do get surprise guest ( customers) who will increase your coin level to reach the next level. DOWNFALL: If you do not want to go broke, I would not recommend this game. This game is money hungry. I am aware that they have to make money but will all the advertisements which pop up, they should be fine. What both me is the fact that there is no real win to this game. You can’t buy the next level until you complete the challenge. Surprise! When you beat the level you have a challenge. Another surprise!! You can’t beat the challenge unless you purchase more gold and coins. If you beat the first challenge and lose the 2nd challenge, you go back to the 1st challenge. No one should be forced to do the challenge if you do not want too. I liked the old game years back. You could play at a good level without all the new challenges and without almost giving them a days salary to pay a game. Beside, what do you get at the end, nothing but another ad and a pop up to buy more coins. Hope this helps people who struggle in life and do not want to put their gas money into a game. Lovely game but to expensive
Money hungry, and lies.
by Ala6182 on 2018/09/24 22:56
When I played this game for the first time I thought it was quite nice. Over time I got more and more into the game and I saw the bad side. I decided to that I should get gold. I didn’t want to pay, so I decided to watch a video. When I’m done with the video I look and see I had the sane amount of gold I did before. I call customer service and they say a bunch of lies and then say “Maybe just uninstall and reinstall the app. We have data saved.” I then do that and NO DATA WAS SAVED! I spent a lot of time on that. I call customer service again and they claim “We never told you to do that. We’re sorry for this event.”....What? They tell me to uninstall and reinstall the app, then claim that they never told me to do that? I then asked, “Well can I at least have the gold that I called for in the first place?” And they’re response is, “We don’t remember a call from yesterday coming from this. We are sorry but the only this to do is assume you won’t free gold”. And they left. That day, I uninstalled the app and never, will I play that game again.
Too expensive. But stupid fun.
by KitsuneDemon on 2018/01/08 06:17
The thing is, Cooking Dash is extremely expensive, especially when you want to 100% upgrade your restaurants to earn better points for the Trials of Style Against other people. What makes me even more mad than the high cost? Ramsay Dash is cheaper than this game. Ramsay Dash also awards more gold daily and weekly than Cooking Dash. The deals? Worse than the ones offered in Ramsay Dash. If you want to play a less expensive game I’m sure the choice is pretty clear. However, I am optimistic that the game devs might take this into consideration and decide to be more generous with their gold in this game. I generally am more willing to part with a few $$ if the deals are fair and the game is generous as Counter-productive as it sounds. Why? Because I like supporting F2P friendly games so they continue being generous. That’s also a way to attract serious minded players like I like to consider myself, and other fans of this series, to be. Please Glu, be more generous... it pays off. Really.
Uhhh... where are my gold wings?
by Just_Kween on 2018/10/11 20:34
So everythime I pass a level. I get my 5 stars.... I also serve all my customers to get the gold wings.... so when I noticed I wasn’t getting them I redid all the levels to get them. And when I did that the following day the gold wings were gone again..... now I wanna keep my wings but every time I do the level it goes away and my wings are gone. But I keep my 5 stars.. I want. Y wings. So I’m gonna need you guys to fix that or give me my gold wings back from my levels... why should I have to play and use my energy to get the level to be gold when I know I served all my customers and got my 5 Stars. The more you don’t fix it the more I’m gonna go down in stars until I don’t play the game no more...I’ve never had an issue with the Gordon ramsey game ... and I actually like this game although u guys want real money half the time and Gordon Ramsey is reasonable but u guys over price things with the gold and whatnot
Needs Improving !!
by Jzekhyria on 2018/01/03 07:32
1 ) i’m tired of trying to play my game then it goes back to the home screen ! when uu click a place to begin working &amp; uu press the grocery thingy so it could take ten away it loads for about ten seconds then it stop &amp; my ten grocery thingies are gone 🤨! then i gave to wait more time , that bothers me . 2 ) these ads that say it’s gone give uu gold or money or more grocery thingies be lyin ! it says it’s a quick little video so i watch it play the game if it’s a game &amp; it still hasn’t gone away .. annoying ! normal games the ads only last fifteen seconds thirty the most .. so i’m not understanding . 3 ) it’s soooooo hard to get money . in one day uu only get like a hundred and fifty coins and that pays for nothing !! i had to redo all my levels just to get enough coins to upgrade my stuff 🙄 done waste ur time getting this .. it starts out fun until uu get to the third season of the first thingy .. hope it helped 🤩
Loved old game but...
by Mumto9 on 2019/04/16 12:21
The new game seemed like it would so much fun with all the new restaurants etc. However there are glitches that don&#39;t pay out, buying bundles that take 3 days to get credited to your account, and expensive to keep playing. Why can&#39;t they just make a new and improved version of Diner Dash without stealing cash? It&#39;s not fun when it is so hard to go up a level, earn improvements, or forced to pay 10 groceries to replay the same level? I feel if you bought that level with your groceries you should be able to try it over and over until you pass. They have made the levels too hard to get through and just have fun. Food items look too similar and you mess up cooking wrong items and running out of time in taco train. I don&#39;t know, as much as I love the concept they got too greedy, care more about raking your wallet through the coals then having a great fun game.
Great Game/Terrible Customer Service
by DontDoIt87 on 2018/07/23 15:36
This is a great game, it’s definitely one you’ll need to spend real world money in order to make any real advancements. This wouldn’t be too bad if what you paid for was actually yours to keep. Instead you lose a lot of the boosts you pay for when the game glitches. I never in my life thought I’d be someone who pays to play a game. But it’s an addictive one once you get started. If I’m putting my money into something I expect to get every last cent of it’s worth. I’ve complained and written several messages to the customer service stating I either want the boosts that I lose due to their glitches returned to my game or to reimbursed for the money I spent on stuff that was taken from me. I have yet to receive a response several days later and this is the second time I’ve complained about this issue with no resolution. For this very reason, I will not pay to play this game again. And I would suggest no one start to play. They have no recourse when it comes to solving issues.
Diner Dash
by LucJac2 on 2017/12/16 15:57
Addicting game but could&#39;ve been better if there are more ways to earn the gold bars. Also, it&#39;s disappointing that I need to use gold bars in upgrading items instead of just using money. Gold bars are hard to get and the free ways to earn the gold bars are misleading (except of course for the videos). They tell you to just submit valid information and you&#39;ll earn gold bars but after you do, you get nothing- a) cause the sponsor did not send you a confirmation email and b) cause you actually need to do tons of survey and the likes! Plus, because you registered, you will now get millions of ad emails. It gets more frustrating trying to communicate with their customer support because they would just tell you the same thing over and over again (like copy and paste from a script) without really trying to understand the issue at hand. I think they don&#39;t care about customers anymore but have become solely a profit-focused company.
Love the game!
by Nicflertruckle on 2019/05/27 17:09
This game is a lot of fun, but could use some improvements. First things first, I hate how long it takes to prep some recipes! The longest ones I have at the moment take TWO DAYS! And it just gets longer from there! It would really be great if they were shorter, like twenty minutes each, maybe? Anyway, the other thing is about watching videos for free gold. Don’t get me wrong, I love the free gold, I just think instead of only getting one gold, I think you should get two. My reason is that pretty much everything requires gold and gold is kind of hard to come by at times. What would be amazing, would be if every day the game would award you a few gold. Kind of like the deal wheel, you know, every day you get like maybe two gold. Thank you for reading my review and I hope to see these changes made to the game. God bless!
Addicting but glitchy
by Heather1970beez on 2017/08/17 10:48
This game is very fun, challenging, and addicting. There are many levels and goals to earn bonuses so that you can improve your odds. Many weekends there are additional bonuses, like extra gold drops or no penalty for playing. I had set this game down for almost a year and picked it back up recently. A year ago there were no issues with the videos you can watch to earn certain power ups - tedious, but necessary if you want to upgrade sooner. Now, however, there are glitches in the videos....I don&#39;t know how many times I have watched a video now that did not give me the promised upgrades. In the past, if I had met the quota for the day I would get a message that said there were no more videos and to try again later. Overall, one of my all-time faves....hope they fix the glitches.
Years of progress gone
by DanielleLuna927 on 2018/07/27 16:27
I loved this game for years. As other reviewers have said over the last few months the game needed to redownload every restaurant every time you opened the app (even when you hadn’t fully closed the app). I thought about deleting the game but ended up getting used to it even though it was very annoying. Then the special events wouldn’t load until all the restaurants had loaded so I would think I was making progress in a loaded restaurant goal but it wouldn’t count. The game started crashing more and more losing groceries and vip customers. Then last week, my entire account was gone. I would open the game and be at the tutorial. I tried closing the app and reopening, signing in and out of my account, deleting the app and redownloading... nothing worked. Years worth of progress gone. I had all but the newest restaurant and 5 stars with all customers served on every level of the majority of those restaurants....
Please fix this
by Du€|< on 2019/11/14 02:39
Let me start by saying I absolutely love this game! It’s honestly an addiction. And the problem I have, isn’t a very large, one but one I’m sure a lot of people can agree on. Some of these levels, I feel are designed to make it impossible to get five stars in. I have played games multiple times in a row. 5-6. With different boosts and recipes. But yet I’m not given enough coins to make it to five stars. I’ve tried getting them by collecting coins in tip bonuses. And nothing. Now I’m OCD, and obsessive. I like to see five golden stars on each of my levels. I feel as if all customers are served, an extra boost of coins should be added to help possibly get to the five stars if close enough. Other then that, I very much enjoy this game. And I have been obsessed since I was a kid. If this is fixed, I will definitely give it five stars.
They want your real money!
by Tumbelina on 2018/05/04 17:22
This game is fun but they made it so difficult to progress or upgrade unless you spend real money and lots of it. I wouldn’t mind to go back to the old way - you pay for the game once and it’s all good. However I refuse to pay real money for freeware games. The reason is that if you pay once it would get you covered for a short period of time and then you have to spend money again and again. It’s a viscous cycle. I don’t mind watching commercials, though. My problem is that some developers (this one) make their games almost impossible to complete without paying real money even though they still make money from the gazillions of ads! And let’s talk about the offers that get you “free” gold. Often times they don’t pay out as promised or at all and CS does not respond at all. They do if the offer is for a few measly coins but if it is a lot - forget about it. Bottom line - the idea behind this game is good but the way they try to make money is not honest. Goodbye!
The support and fyber have made this game not worth playing
by PoochieJoles on 2018/07/09 04:44
Besides the fact they allow fyber to do the free offers even alot of paid offers and they cheat you out of your gold fyber took all my offers off for over 2 months i have had none and they told me to be patient i contacted support for the game and talked to beejay and he did nothing i sent a normal message and he told me i was being abusive and other things i asked how 4 times he ignored the questions told me to check my pop up blocker i did sent him a screen shot he asked for a image of the conversation i had with fyber so he could further investigate i sent the screen shot he said like they said u just have to wait ... really??? I asked for a phone number to speak to a manager he ended our conversation i am erasing the game and recommend u dont do the free offers and hope u dont need support :) There’s. Non stop issues with it crashing non stop and I have to uninstall and re install the app an I lose everything
Great app!
by Sexi A on 2018/01/02 20:41
I ablsohtly love this game. I was completely sadden when the developer did not update the first diner dash app. With that being said this game is great, I only have two issues. The first one is the advertisement within the game keeps getting stuck as well as other setting in the game, for example when I click on “closet” it gets stuck as soon as it opens and I can not go back to the home page. I she constantly keep closing out the app everyone to start over. The second is that you have to use 10 of your fruits/good to play a game. This goes buy to quickly and forces you to stop playing once you run out of supplies. Once they fix those issues for me this game will be number 1 for me.
Beware...You will spend money
by ice 1ce on 2018/06/29 05:21
Like other reviewers, I love and hate this game. Love it because it’s a fun game, but hate it since it’s such a money grabber -more so now with the updated gameplay. If you don’t buy the chef, you may not get that far to do the other challenges for that particular restaurant. There are costume and pet upgrades but it takes forever to get them if you don’t spend real money. I’ve played this one for years, spent some money here and there but am considering deleting it. I am just tired of where they’ve gone with this game. Frustrating not being able to achieve 5-star levels (which you’ll need for other game challenges) without paying gold. So beware: If you’re willing to spend real money, then you’ll probably enjoy this game. If you don’t want to spend, don’t get started or play until you can’t anymore.
Irritated AF
by joce101 on 2019/01/27 01:18
Ever since I updated it to the newest version, every time I open the app it says multiple crashes and then lists my player ID.... I’ve never had this problem and it’s so irritating. If not fixed soon I’m over this game Also other suggestions: there should be 2-3 more daily goals to let players get a few more gold who do not wanna pay your stupid prices for this game The amount of stupid ads while playing this game is also getting g ridiculous and becoming Another deterrent... like is this game worth the stupid ads.. And lastly, to get gold which is nearly impossibly without paying except watching the few adds each day, you should allow users to watch 4-8 more adds a day than what’s already offered. Otherwise this game has become ridiculously to progress unless you wanna pay $$$ and I know I’m not the only one that feels that way And last suggestion, I wish there was also the option - similar to dinner dash in which you can play st venues without a time limit but you need an appropriate customer satisfaction. That would also be fun and could be another way in which users could Try to earn gold. Plz consider this and PLZ come out with an update soon cuz it’s been 1 week since I’ve been able to even play this game Since I updated and I’m sure if I look, I can find another game similar I enjoy Plz cooking dash, step it the f**** up
Best and worst game at the same time
by CharlieeeeHu on 2018/04/24 19:08
I never knew such thing existed, until I started to play this game. Gameplay is so attractive and addictive that you just cannot stop playing. It’s challenging but it’s not frustrating. The levels get harder but you also find yourself better at the game. However, invest/reward system of this game is so bad. If you are like me, a perfectionist, you just have to earn that five star and serve all the customers possible in each level. Don’t ask me why, some people are just designed this way. Anyway, this means that you might need to upgrade all materials to level 2, save up gold bars for auto chef, get the VIP prep recipe, and be mentally super concentrated (for taco train for example). Now this might sounds like nothing but it is almost impossible. Upgrading materials require gazillion gold bars, and auto chefs cost so much (100) bars later on. The worst part is when you complete a free offer, half of the time you don’t get the reward (for example downloading an app, level up in Final Fantasy, etc.) You find yourself stuck in the game because you don’t have enough coins or gold bar for upgrading in the next show, and you are tired of playing the same show to earn coins. If you are going to spend real money, you would enjoy this outstanding game. If you want it free, move on and play some other free games.
Fun and addictive but...
by songbirdmc on 2018/07/20 04:22
I really enjoy this game and it is addictive! I bought a bundle that included removal of all ad’s which I highly recommend to anyone that plays this game regularly because those ad’s are a huge nuisance and not having to deal with them has made all the difference. I’m saving up to get an iPad because I’m currently playing on my phone which is not easy on my eyes and unfortunately causes me to make the wrong dish at times. My main complaints with this game is that you really need a lot of gold bars and coins to excel in this game therefore you need to purchase them with your real money. I do sometimes and don’t get me wrong you can get free gold by watching videos and/or completing offers, but you still need more. I would watch more ad’s but there’s a limit! I hate the limit! The other complaint is one that there’s not really anything that can be done about it. The more you play the game and the more restaurants that you open the longer it takes to load!!! It’s so frustrating. I have about seven currently and it takes a really long time to load. It’s almost frustrating enough to quit. Just imagine when I have 20 or more open. 🤔 I guess I’ll see how much worse it gets.
Play a game, don’t be the game!
by jpcoop on 2018/12/01 12:42
First of all, the game itself is nicely done, with quality graphics, a well-thought out experience and no technical problems. The first “restaurant” even makes sense, with your skill mostly driving the results and the coins &amp;/or gold that are needed for items at reasonable levels. After the first restaurant, though, things go downhill. There is little connection between ability and game success. It’s nearly impossible to score more than one or two stars in some levels without upgrades and the upgrades are a ridiculously high number of coins &amp;/or gold bars. There are opportunities to “earn” free coins or gold, which I took advantage of, but the only reliable source is watching videos, and you can’t earn enough that way. I set my spending limit at $10, which is more than I’d spend on most games for my phone. I’ve reached that, so I’ll be deleting this game now. I wanted to play a game, not BE THE GAME!!
Fun game play, hard to progress
by Sassycassy343 on 2019/12/05 16:23
I love this game. There are so many fun levels that are uniquely themed and just overall super cute. The only thing is that it is nearly impossible to progress. Unlike Restaurant Dash with Gordon Ramsey, you hardly get any coins per level. And in Restaurant Dash, you can build up Gordon to immediately clear the customers you have in store, which helps earn more coins. Cooking Dash doesn’t have any sort of boost like that. So without earning more coins per level, you can’t purchase upgrades and then you just get stuck. I’ve honestly stopped playing because of that. But I’d like to play more, I’m just tired of playing the same levels over and over again trying to earn more to move on. Oh well, maybe the creators will finally update after all of the complaints🤷🏽‍♀️
Its pretty annoying
by Fsantiago88 on 2019/09/03 02:40
There’s so many hoops to go thru to play this game. I understand levels of a game but this game is ridiculous. The main requirement to play this game is GOLD. You can only get 3 GOLD per day by completing daily task + 8 additional GOLD by watching ad videos. It’s gets to the point where u have to patiently wait to collect GOLD everyday or spend your own money to play this game. You CANNOT complete certain episode because u need GOLD to upgrade the equipments, food and the restaurants. But by the rate your getting these GOLD without spending your own money....it’ll take you about 20 years to finish this game. My advice is maybe allow us to get 50 GOLD per day. There’s too many venues that requires upgrades and not to mention, you need GOLD access new venues. Why not just makes those venues FREE??? Since your already asking for GOLD for the stuff I mentioned.
Excellent game ruined by ridiculous high price tag
by Gracegsx on 2018/10/19 11:37
As far as gameplay goes the game definitely deserves a 5 star rating. It is unique in so many ways, challenging, funny, satisfying. The greed however is worth a solid 1 star rating. The problem is the ridiculous amount of premium currency (gold bars) you need to spend to access 95% of it. The price tags are unreasonably high for everything that costs gold and pretty much everything does if you want to progress at all. They make it VERY difficult to earn gold too. The challenge aspect increases way too steeply. You can easily spend 125 gold (premium currency) on upgrades for a single restaurant and only be able to master 10-15 more levels which can be pretty disheartening. 125 gold = $10. And a warning these upgrades DO NOT transfer to other restaurants. I want to spend real money if I felt it was worth it but considering $10 hardly gets you anywhere, it just is not worth it which is a real shame. The game REALLY needs to reduce the price significantly on gold purchases or gold costs because you are really losing out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in IAPs because of the ridiculously hard to swallow price tag you are putting on gold.

Fun but very expensive
by cdubssss on 2020/02/17 13:47
The game is fun but when you play more than one venue it gets really expensive and the apps creators are very cheap with prizes and gold
Great game
by rucke1 on 2020/02/15 13:34
Awesome
Long time player
by Mommaof2TX on 2020/02/13 01:53
I had some issues, but a new support assistant helped and made it right. Give this game a go, it’s hard but oh so fun!!
Crashes
by LeleAllDayErryday on 2020/02/11 22:07
I was enjoying this app til it started crashing. Please fix ur bugs!!!!
Garbage game
by Chiefjazz on 2020/02/09 13:31
Used to be a great game, but now it keeps crashing and lose what you’ve earned. And can’t earn more than 2-3 gold per day. No videos to watch anymore, must have lost their advertisers. Uninstalling
Too much pay to play
by Mike Divine on 2020/02/08 19:37
Either charge me $5 for the game and let me play or let me play without having to spend money unless I want to. I’ve played the game quite a bit for the last week or so but I’ve gotten to the point where I can’t earn enough gold bars even by watching your ads for 1 at a time and then cut off from doing that for a long while. I’ll have to delete the app and invest my time in other games. Take a look at supercells model and figure out how to keep people invested and spend money on it.
What on earth is going on with this app
by Newwyorkkkk7 on 2020/02/07 01:38
Why can’t I ever earn more gold, but have millions of coins? Why is it so hard to upgrade appliances because they need more gold than coins? Trial of Style is an absolute mess and so are the new features like pets and etc. There is too much going on without any consistency. This app used to be great but now it’s a disaster.
Love this Game but,,,,,
by Dianna34 on 2020/02/06 15:07
I love this game and would give it 5 stars, but this game is also very frustrating. I have been playing it for a few years now and have come to realize it’s almost impossible to advance without buying gold. The Trial of Style is always fun and I look forward to each new one, but it’s really frustrating when you spend two days waiting on a VIP character to finish, and have it lost in Trial of Style because the time quickly runs out and it’s wasted. I think I will find myself another game to enjoy 😔
Game is fun but buggy
by panda4563217 on 2020/02/06 04:53
I love the dinerdash series and I started playing the game for the first time today. I love this game, the levels are creative and entertaining.. but there have been certain levels that I click on that has been closing out the app altogether. This is making the game difficult to advance. Besides the bugs the game is fun.
Rip off
by MVC1176 on 2020/02/05 20:06
If you get a new phone, or have to download this app again it will start you from the beginning so all of the money you spent disappears. What a freaking rip off!
Bittersweet
by Murderlina Farruggio on 2020/02/05 18:19
If you want a game you play a flat rate for, that&#39;s super fun, go with the Delicious/Emily games, $10 is all you pay per game, and they are amazing quality fun. Cooking Dash was way more fun when the graphics weren&#39;t the best, yet you could still enjoy without pumping constant money into it. The moment this game is going anywhere near $10 I&#39;m deleting it. Other than that, yeah the graphics are amazing and it&#39;s kind of fun. Edit: how are apps able to get majority of reviews so high? Is Apple really letting them scam for high reviews? Not a good look.
Love This Game!! Super Fun!!
by iamrazed on 2020/02/03 18:25
I am a fan of Diner Dash games. I’ve been playing since the very first version of Diner Dash. The latest Cooking Dash installment is the best of all their versions of Flo and her Diner Dash series. Honorable Mentions - the original Cooking Dash, Diner Dash: Flo on the Go AND Cooking Dash: Diner Town Studios. These are must-trys. Back to the review. Yes, you will be need to use your own money to get the game started. TIPS: 1) Buy 300 gold in the bundle and get started. Start with small upgrades that are absolutely necessary. In the Prep Kitchen, get the Auto Chef, Time Bonuses, and Fast Flow (or any combo of the other prep kitchen chefs) and play! Keep all the chefs in rotation especially the Auto Chef and it will help you advance. Find more tips online in how to beat each level effectively! Good luck! 2) If you come across a glitch or other issues while playing, click on the round orange button on the bottom right then Customer Care (green button in the middle). You can look and find answers through their Q&amp;A board or click on Contact Us on the very upper right corner and send them your questions/issues. I have taken a brief break from the game, but now back to speed with “I’m Really Inuit,” “Jungle Joint,” and “Pad Thai Pinball.” Cooking Dash is a super fun game (challenging at times) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
I miss the old one
by jrdhdhsjshfjidjdjxjrugsgdugh on 2020/02/03 01:31
Can u make the old version? No video game is like the first one
Waiting for an answer from tech support
by Deed75 on 2020/02/02 14:57
I’ve been playing this for years. All of my progress was lost. The game Somehow reset itself. I never did. I was logged into the game through Facebook as well. It’s so frustrating. The game crashed frequently as well and they don’t update frequently.
Don’t bother - not updated
by sunnyb5678 on 2020/02/01 17:33
This used to be a great game. You have to soend a lot of money on it which I did. Now it’s not updated, doesn’t always open the venues, has too many glitches to list and will take your gold when it glitches. Time to move on and not to the new diner dash which is awful
Going downhill...
by beholdthehurrikate on 2020/01/31 20:53
I&#39;ve been playing Cooking Dash for years (at least 5). Which does mean I&#39;ve spent a bit of real world money...and I&#39;m not sure where it goes. Certainly not to a tech team because there are bugs everywhere. Premonition recipes now make it harder because they glitch, there are many spelling errors, and while new levels are added consistently you need to be able to spend $20-$50 USD to get 5 stars on each. There aren&#39;t enough free gold ads to watch for gold. Really disappointing (Please fix prepmonition recipes!)
Fun but too much stuff
by Channie113 on 2020/01/29 21:29
The only thing stopping me from giving this a five star review is that there are too many bells and whistles. I just want to cook the food and servebit, not worry about her outfit, gold bars and other crap.
Not playing it over again
by Dragonwriter72 on 2020/01/27 00:11
I had started a new game because I didn’t like where I was on my old one. So I was playing merrily along then all of a sudden, a white screen came on and wouldn’t go off. Not even several minutes or an hour later. So I deleted it and redownloaded. Now it wants me to start all over again. Not happening. I’m very unhappy.
Love playing but...
by TrishMCT on 2020/01/26 20:10
Love this game, but they want you to spend too much money to keep playing. Can’t get upgrades without gold. They just want you to spend $$$$$ to get it. Too bad
Loading
by Casanovete on 2020/01/26 04:39
I absolutely love this but lately it has been loading every 30 minutes to hour. So I have to wait for the game to load and then I can play. Is there an update to stop this? Its becoming very annoying. And sometimes causes me to not want to play.
Best game ever
by ibrahim0223 on 2020/01/25 06:14
I really love this game
FIX THE VIDEO ADS!
by Brigitte Nicole on 2020/01/24 02:52
I am getting really sick of the video ads freezing on me and then I lose the gold-earning opportunity. I lost FIVE golds today because the videos keep freezing on me, so I have to kill and restart the app. PLEASE fix. The gold bars are already so rarely given in this game.
Way too expensive
by Grandprix4 on 2020/01/24 02:50
I’ve played this game for years. I even purchased diner dash on a disc before you could download games. However, this new cooking dash is ridiculous. No matter how good you are at this game, you will never pass the levels without spending a lot of $$$ having to buy gold and tickets. Maybe they should be a little less greedy. The game isn’t fun anymore because skill doesn’t matter. I would rather just purchase a game but, of course, they wouldn’t be making all this money selling supplies. Even the venues have become stupid, especially the baseball one. Nothing works fast enough unless you buy upgrades for everything.
Bugs
by elin2345 on 2020/01/22 02:56
It was working great at first. Then all of a sudden it stoped working and now it never loads. I will have to delete and since I will lose all the progress I will not install again.
Mehhh
by beeutiful715 on 2020/01/21 20:59
This is a fun and enjoyable game in my opinion. It&#39;s addicting and passes time. With that said to move through levels one must make SEVERAL purchases. Also the game has prep recipes that are boosters that take hours to &#34;prep&#34; before you can use them in a game. My game constantly glitches out and when I first started telling &#34;customer service&#34; about them they would compensate me in gold or prep recipes I had lost, now they find every excuse to blame me, my phone or connection and simply apologize. I do not make this stuff up to them just sick of paying for this game and never being able to play....They used to offer prizes over the holidays and don’t do that anymore either. This game is just a money trap with bs “customer service” well candy crush never crashes ✌🏾
Update???
by ToniWoosah on 2020/01/21 06:46
I love this game. I don’t even mind spending real money on it. But can we get an update? When are you all going to update and create more restaurants?
Do not delete this game
by Nuts about this on 2020/01/20 13:40
I’ve been playing for some time now and really enjoy the game BUT it was deleted by accident and now I’ve lost all my progress!! Contacting support is not helpful.. still have not addressed my issue.. shame,, I guess I won’t be playing anymore
Fail to download
by Shshdancer on 2020/01/20 04:53
I’ve played this game for several years and loved it, owned many restaurants and had more coins than I could have ever used. A few months ago it started every time I opening it saying it failed to download check internet connection...every.single.time I opened the game! So frustrating. I finally decided to delete the game and reinstall it hoping that works fix it. Well it didn’t and now I’m back at square one with no coins and no restaurants. Y’all are losing players left and right judging by the other recent reviews. What the heck?!?!
Awesome!!
by Gamer Girl 13 🎮😉 on 2020/01/19 15:04
Awesome, addicting game! No ads, no interruptions! Just a fun, strategic, and addicting game! Love it!
Bad update
by Sunshine1288 on 2020/01/17 11:57
I used to love playing this game day in and day out; however, things change. Your latest update has me downloading restaurants that I’ve had for years now every time I open the app. It’s ridiculous and annoying. Please fix!
Cost a lot of money
by Kristin Scimenes on 2020/01/16 18:32
You won’t get anywhere in the game unless you spend a bunch of money. I rather buy the game than be spending money everyday just to play. Stupid.
Always downloading
by kiradanielle on 2020/01/15 18:52
I used to love this game but recently every time I try to open it, it has to re-download all of the venues all over again. I don’t have the time or patience to wait. I keep it on my phone in hopes that this problem will resolve but so far, it hasn’t. I’ve spent a lot of money on this game and am pretty upset.
Fun times
by ✨🌟✨A✨🌟✨ on 2020/01/14 03:49

Ok game, costs too many rare resources, poor customer service
by GardenOfSimple on 2020/01/12 03:37
The game is fine, but requires expensive power ups in order to complete many levels. And then the customer service won’t even do return an in-game item when the game glitches causing you to have wasted many resources. Deleting. Good riddance .
Freezes all the time
by Sassi3081 on 2020/01/11 16:06
Free play and quick flo never works. Used to love game but now it’s a headache because the things I look forward to doesn’t work. I can use a boost and the game will just crash so not only is my boost gone but also my 10 supplies
This game is weird
by amazingsomeboy on 2020/01/08 20:38

App glitching out on certain level
by Maria🖤🖤 on 2020/01/08 19:01
I love the game I’ve always loved anything “Diner Dash” related, but on “Table Steaks” season 2 episode 8 whenever I click on the level it glitches to the home screen and that’s the only level it’s does that on.
Bad
by L Jean Grace on 2020/01/08 12:26
Im gonna uninstall this app!!! Every I’d play this game its getting automatic quit!!! After you wait the active boost for a long time then that will happen?! Many times that has happened. Im so fun to play this game but now it’s so really annoying!!

Game messing up
by Lastarra on 2020/01/03 16:01
So I really love this game and have been playing it for years and for the last couple of months the game been having some type of glitch in it where it’s almost like it’s cheating and won’t let me serve customers I would have gave you guys a 5star rating but this glitch is pissing me off
Love it!
by CatDac on 2020/01/03 13:32
Challenging and not as easy as the older version
Cooking up fun!
by LRC06 on 2020/01/03 06:59
The Dashes have done it again. This game is great. There’s tons of levels, and tasks, and your ability to play (groceries) turns over quickly. I’ve played before on my iPad a dim happy I downloaded it again for my phone.
Very upset.
by $madelyn$ on 2020/01/03 03:37
This game is ok. It’s so much different than what it used to be. But what I’m REALLY mad about is that the creators are to lazy to update Hotel Dash and Wedding Dash on iPhone XR. It won’t download. AND..... this game doesn’t work very well. I am extremely irritated😡😑
Esta entretenido

Love the game but expensive
by jdvanhook on 2020/01/01 00:27
I love playing this game and opening new restaurants but it takes way too much time to build up gold to be able to do that and upgrade the restaurant to progress. Not nearly enough opportunities to earn free gold as there is in Restaurant Dash.
Upgrades are too expensive

Why does it keep crashing
by Mizz.Absolute on 2019/12/31 15:43
I’ve been playing this game for a very long time now..YEARS to be exact! I love the game but lately it just keeps crashing and it’s nerve wrecking especially when I’m trying to win a level and always end up losing the VIP characters that I’ve waited hours and days to use that just end up disappearing because of the constant crashing. Please fix it!
Love/hate
by stefy123483)3)3) on 2019/12/31 02:49

It’s not download it keep saying internet connection
by Achiicka on 2019/12/30 17:56
And I have internet connection even when I’m connected to WiFi . So I don’t understand this issue
Nice game but unskippable and traumatic ads make it difficult to play
by endtraumaticads on 2019/12/30 04:26
I love the game but the constant ads are annoying. Sometimes there’s an ad that can’t be closed or ended without completely closing out the game which is frustrating. The worst though is an ad that is especially traumatic for me where a woman finds out she’s pregnant, tells the father who immediately leaves her and she’s left alone and sobbing on a porch. This ad triggers me so severely that I have to exit the game every time I see it and not play again for a few days. If there’s no way to exit the ad at least have an option for people like me to stop seeing it and see some other ad instead.
It was cool until the updates added ads. Delete this
by Beyond | Trendy on 2019/12/29 02:45
I hate in ads on a game. I can pay for coins or other things but don’t put unnecessary ads in the middle of my game.
Lost all progress
by twyztedgothik on 2019/12/29 00:34
I used to play this game all the time and spent quite a bit of real money (yeah, I know), but after getting a new phone and downloading again I lost all progress and all the money wasted! After submitting a help ticket and having several different people “taking over” my ticket I was told a couple of times that the problem was fixed.... it was not. Deleting the app, redownloading, reconnecting to my fb account, nothing fixed, I feel even sillier to have spent hard earned money on a game that I used to love. My advice, play casually, don’t give them any money, and/or don’t upgrade your phone.
Crashes
by she2346 on 2019/12/27 21:47
Won’t stop crashing. Went through the trouble of writing them to let them know and get some sort of answer. Before you write to customer service it instructs you to not have any other apps open as well as a few things... I did all of that and let them know I had done this already. Their answer was just those same instructions again.... didn’t even want to fix the issue. Deleting and never downloading again. Poor service that I could have read on the FAQ page... so what the point of customer service or contacting them to fix their app🤷🏼‍♀️
No internet connection
by kerirogers on 2019/12/27 01:26
It keeps saying that there is no internet connection so I can’t get onto the store or down load the next . My internet connection is fine because none of my other apps have had any issues

For the past few days, every time I log on, it tells me I don’t have a connection and the game has to re-download EVERY venue. What is happening?!
Failed to download
by Sarahjane616 on 2019/12/17 16:43
Upon opening the game, I’ve been (sporadically) getting an error message, failed to download content, with a retry option. I then have to have the game open and screen on while each restaurant downloads. It happened 2 separate times today. It is not my internet connection. It’s time consuming and unnecessary and I will eventually just stop playing. Nobody has time for that.

Annoyed with Game
by Athena7043 on 2019/12/17 01:21
This game is fun and I enjoy wasting my time playing it. How we of you have any sort of life This game isn’t for you. If you earn rewards and don’t play for even a week it takes things away from you. I have played for over a year and I am done. You will earn what they call a saucer but if you don’t play during there special event they take one one away from you and it is impossible to earn it back. For example with the thanksgiving event I lost a saucer by only playing 2/3 events and will not be able to earn it back till next year. After a year of playing I am not much higher in points then I was a year ago. It’s hard to earn things without spending tons of money. I don’t recommend this game.
Too Challenging and Not Enough Time
by onliiistarstar on 2019/12/16 12:30
Everything cost gold &amp; it takes along time to gain coins from customers. The only African American girl on the game gets upset very quickly. You don’t have enough time to make the orders when you have to prepare everything such as the tortillas and drinks and still make the food. So that takes up most of your time. Aside from that you do all this hard work to at least get one star and coins and they still ask for gold to upgrade. This app takes and doesn’t give unless you watch along video. Makes me not even want to spend money on it.
Update game
by Essence_C on 2019/12/10 21:53
I have been playing this game for a while now and everything a ad pops up it makes the game crash and takes me back to my phones home screen , it has done that to me 6 times already today and I barely started playing . It often makes me lose the reward I was going to get Or if I’m in a level it will make me start it all over. It’s very frustrating
Re-downloads every time
by MommytoAandK on 2019/12/09 14:32
This game desperately needs an update. Every time I close the game it loses all of its info. I like the game itself but this needs to be fixed.
Impossible to pass levels
by Skdunn on 2019/12/09 01:53
I used to play this game and loved it a few years ago and I recently downloaded it again and it’s not even enjoyable like it used to be. It’s a fun game but whoever changed it, made it to where it’s almost impossible to even get one star to go to the next level in only season 2. You’d have to keep buying gold bars to buy the Fast Flo to go fast enough to serve customers. Such a joke.
Reallly bad
by lliyerr🎊07 on 2019/12/08 12:44
Hangs all the time and has way too many bugs
So cool
by shekah dance on 2019/12/07 19:35
This app is not to challenging but NEEDS to be renovated. We need more time to serve customers. PLEASE RENOVATE THIS APP QUICKLY BEFORE IT IS TO LATE. ( THIS APP IS TO CHALLENGING)
Fun game play, hard to progress
by Sassycassy343 on 2019/12/05 16:23
I love this game. There are so many fun levels that are uniquely themed and just overall super cute. The only thing is that it is nearly impossible to progress. Unlike Restaurant Dash with Gordon Ramsey, you hardly get any coins per level. And in Restaurant Dash, you can build up Gordon to immediately clear the customers you have in store, which helps earn more coins. Cooking Dash doesn’t have any sort of boost like that. So without earning more coins per level, you can’t purchase upgrades and then you just get stuck. I’ve honestly stopped playing because of that. But I’d like to play more, I’m just tired of playing the same levels over and over again trying to earn more to move on. Oh well, maybe the creators will finally update after all of the complaints🤷🏽‍♀️
Terrible
by LolaSkyy13 on 2019/12/04 03:35
Buggy. Crashes frequently. Customer support is apologetic but does not and will not help. Uninstall!

As soon as you make a purchase, they will do an update to get you to spend more money. They&#39;ll change the level of difficulty.
Can’t get gold
by MustLoveGames on 2019/12/01 08:56
I actually do enjoy the game itself, but you can’t get gold to upgrade. The ads don’t work majority of the time to earn gold and the other means to get gold don’t work either. Can’t finish daily goals a lot of the time since watching ads for gold doesn’t work. Will be uninstalling unless it gets fixed soon. It’s also dumb that the groceries only go to 50 when you level up (each play costs 10). In other words, I could be almost out of groceries and level up so get 50 more and get to play 5 more additional times (10 total) OR I could only level up right when I start playing (6 total).
Glitches
by Wilkins729 on 2019/11/30 00:25
I really like playing this game, but it glitches constantly and you lose groceries and VIPs, which are hard to come by. Wish they could fix this issue.
Downhill all the way
by Scotmom22 on 2019/11/28 14:00
I’ve been playing this game for years. It started off as good, mindless fun. Recently it has gotten so bad it’s not even funny. A regular daily challenge is to watch 3 ads for gold (today I have to watch 4). Yet these ads frequently crash, or are simply not available to watch. So not only do I not get gold from the ads, but I don’t get to complete the daily challenge for gold either. When I contacted support I was told that, honestly it’s not their fault, I’m probably just not their demographic target. Yeah, okay. They don’t want my money...hmmmmm. I spend what gold I have for expensive upgrades that make no difference to the star total afterwards. It’s becoming impossible to complete levels. How this game is sitting with a 4.7 out of 5 rating is beyond me. I’ll go be mindless elsewhere lol!!
So addictive

HORRIBLE TROUBLESHOOTING!!
by Kimber A. on 2019/11/27 23:49
I have been playing this game for 3 years. I have spent over $75 on in-app purchases. The game can be fun. However the latest iOS update (13) caused several issues on my phone and required me to restore my phone from a back-up as well as reset network settings multiple times. Now I have lost ALL progress I have made in Cooking Dash along with all the restaurants I purchased, gold, coins, etc. EVERYTHING is gone and glu.com keeps asking me for my Trial of Style user name and without that nothing can be done!! HORRIBLE TROUBLESHOOTING!! Every other game I play restored my history, progress and purchases. Cooking Dash is only one who cannot!!!!
Old version was better
by Brbate on 2019/11/26 14:54
This game is ridiculous. It used to be fun and I’d play for hours. Now with the update you can only play for so long because you have to wait for your groceries/lives to refill to play and it’s ten grocery and it’s takes four minutes for each. If I have payed money for a game I better be able to play it whenever I please. And then some of the upgrades you are forced to use the gold coins for but you don’t get a lot of those. The older version I earned more money a plate and could use it for everything. And what happened to all the other versions of this, wedding dash, hotel dash, soap opera dash, parking lot dash. Then again if you trash those games like you did these maybe they aren’t worth updating. Thanks for ruining one of my favorite games. Can I get the older versions back? Those I recommend to people. This I just can’t.
DO NOT PLAY
by FurrenParagon on 2019/11/21 03:13
Originally this game can be fun. You start off, you pass through levels and upgrade just fine. Really the only thing saving this game as a two star in my book is the variety it has. But if you don’t want to spend money on an iPhone game, run away from this one. It will cheat you out of as much gold (needed for any upgrades or new stores) as it can. Plus it will randomly advertise at you once you are out of your playing portion of the game. You will perform a level and then you better hope you don’t get another ad. At this point I myself have been cheated out of over 100 gold and counting. If you can pay to play, go on ahead. Otherwise I hope you like to crawl through gameplay.
Pay to play, pay to win, and ads
by OhioSean on 2019/11/19 07:41
You have to pay to play this game (other than in short bursts). You realistically have to pay to buy items that make it possible to progress. And then the developers also force you to watch really, really terrible advertisements. To ensure the absolute worst experience for people who enjoy these games, the dev apparently stopped updating the original so people have to “upgrade” to this steaming pile. I’m out.
Super Glitchy Lately
by RLD23 on 2019/11/18 20:37
I have been playing this game for years and have loved it, but lately it’s super glitchy!!! I should have got Halloween wheels for the Halloween event and didn’t, even after communicating with customer support. I don’t get my prizes after the event is over. This is very frustrating!!! This has never happened before! What’s going on... not sure I would play this again.
Love this game but crazy expense.
by SRG302 on 2019/11/18 00:36
I truly love all the levels and unlocking everything. The problem is their are so many cooking restaurants and each will run you about 60 dollars in real money to completely beat. It is entirely too expensive and I have never replayed a game that costs this much with little specials.
Too expensive
by 233fox on 2019/11/17 22:37
For what you pay it’s not worth it
Love this game
by Ellie357 on 2019/11/16 17:38
I love this game. Each restaurant has its own challenge, you need to use your memory to remember how to cook each item. The only thing I don’t like is the fact you need gold to buy a lot of things. To obtain the amount of goal you need you have to wait for free abs each day or pay.
Genuinely happy with this game
by wax_idiotic on 2019/11/15 05:41
I’ve been playing for well over a year now, and I’m still playing every day. Recently I had an issue with rewards from an event, and less than 12 hours after contacting customer support with my screenshots, I received my rewards.. plus extra. I have spent actual money on this game, maybe around $10, but I see that as worth it. They give more than enough opportunities to earn stuff for free, so spending money isn’t even necessary. And on a random note, I’ve found that playing with a stylus is helpful on the tougher levels. It’s more precise than a finger, and I don’t end up selecting the wrong ingredients. 🤗
Please fix this
by Du€|< on 2019/11/14 02:39
Let me start by saying I absolutely love this game! It’s honestly an addiction. And the problem I have, isn’t a very large, one but one I’m sure a lot of people can agree on. Some of these levels, I feel are designed to make it impossible to get five stars in. I have played games multiple times in a row. 5-6. With different boosts and recipes. But yet I’m not given enough coins to make it to five stars. I’ve tried getting them by collecting coins in tip bonuses. And nothing. Now I’m OCD, and obsessive. I like to see five golden stars on each of my levels. I feel as if all customers are served, an extra boost of coins should be added to help possibly get to the five stars if close enough. Other then that, I very much enjoy this game. And I have been obsessed since I was a kid. If this is fixed, I will definitely give it five stars.
My opinion
by MarCar13 on 2019/11/13 17:38
The amount of gold bars needed to upgrade food, speed...etc is way to high, while the amount of gold bars you are credited are only 1-2 at a time.
Glitches
by Aud325 on 2019/11/12 04:45
This is a very fun game and I have spent a lot of money on gold bars, BUT several times this game has glitched when I have started a level. I always lose the “special” VIP bonus. I have won the trial of style series multiplayers times and have not received my reward. Not happy with the amount of money I have spent on this.
Exciting and vexing
by mm3027219 on 2019/11/09 04:21
This game is ridiculously addictive to the point where I have invested my feelings into it 😂. I have gotten so mad, I’ve thrown my phone at the wall. I’ve also gotten so sad about losing that I have actually been sad all day. On the bright side, I have had actual fun playing this and have been playing it for years. Like someone else said in the reviews, it is hard to not spend your actual money to get anywhere in this game.
You have to buy gold
by kbuedb on 2019/11/06 21:34
To complete all of the levels you will need to purchase gold.
Lack of customer support
by DW disappointed on 2019/11/06 15:45
I won their last Halloween Tournament (TOS) and I wasn’t awarded my prize. I used the in game contact us feature and that appears to not be working. I couldn’t upload my screenshot proof. I didn’t get an acknowledgement that they received what I posted. I used to get an acknowledgement within 24 hours, usually sooner.
Don’t abandon us!
by HeidiFish1 on 2019/11/06 01:41
I love this game and have been playing since it was called “Cooking Dash 2016”, but the support for the game from Glu is mostly gone, and there are no new venues or new challenges or games or surprises.
A bunch of glitches
by Serena Nicole on 2019/11/06 01:25
And no available videos for gold ever??? Do they not care some people have played this game for years spent tons of money? What a great way to show your appreciation to your customers Still glitching steals your time and money! 👎
I love the game
by ShavyT on 2017/11/23 01:09
I’ve read quit a lot of reviews and here’s what I have. First of all- I don’t try to earn gold by doing anything that takes me out of the app. I only watch the commercials. Secondly, I used to see that even after watching the commercials I wouldn’t get my gold. Here’s the thing- I’ve realized that after the commercial is over, you have to wait a second till the pop up says you’ve earned your gold. I’m pretty far along in the game- I’m up to level 93. I really enjoy it. Yes, the price of upgrades has gone up but you also have the chance of earning 3 gold bars a day. That helps. I’ve also learned to use my upgrades wisely and not just spend so I can get to the next level. I have never spent a single dollar on this game. Ever. And I never will. I have not downloaded the newest upgrade because last time this kind of thing came up it looked WILDLY complicated. The spinning, the dressing, who cares?? I just wanna run restaurants. I was so glad to see it go away last time. I have almost 2 million coins. I want the offers to but surprise gifts with coins!!
Love/Hate
by KelseyNova on 2017/11/25 21:28
I love this game. The game play is so fun, the characters are entertaining, there&#39;s A LOT you can unlock and do, it&#39;s mostly an awesome game! However, it really is very difficult to get anywhere without spending real world money. At first, it seems easy to gain gold bars, complete levels, unlock necessary and helpful upgrades, etc. But the more you play, the less you see. For instance, I completed the first restaurant (Table Steaks - all three seasons) with ease and managed to get 5 stars on every level with little help. I have since purchased Taco Train and find it impossible to get 5 stars on the majority of levels without VIPs, which cost gold as do upgrades to the restaurant, plus coins and only gaining a couple stars per level, I&#39;m not getting many coins either. So no matter what I do, even using gold to buy things to help, I&#39;m getting nowhere. I purchased the vegan restaurant next, even WITH upgrade, VIPs, serving all customers quick and efficiently I&#39;m only able to get 2-3 stars per episode. Why is that? I feel like the work I&#39;m putting into each level is monumental compared to the rewards. I&#39;d spend real money on this game if I felt like it would actually help but to be honest, I don&#39;t think it will. And lastly, I&#39;ve only been playing this game for about a week, maybe not even that long, at first I didn&#39;t notice many ads. Now all of a sudden there are video ads that pop up frequently and oftentimes crash the game.
Expensive and time consuming
by Bwilli34 on 2017/12/17 13:05
This game is fun to play but they&#39;ve designed it to make it VERY difficult to earn gold...... which you have to have to buy upgrades to win the levels. The upgrades are super expensive compared to the gold you can earn without using your real, hard earned money to buy more. The prep kitchen recipes you need to really win levels take hours and days to prep (no joke people.... 20 hours, 14 hours, 2 days, etc.). You can earn “free gold” by watching 30 second videos or completing other tasks tasks. BE WARNED....... this process can be glitchy and even though you did your part, you won’t get your gold. Don’t bother contacting customer service, “It’s beyond their control”. Free gold is handled by a third party and they “have no control over it”. They are super great about telling you how it’s all your fault though ( your device doesn’t have enough memory, your bandwidth isn’t good enough, etc), AND, they will NEVER offer to give you anything free in return for all your trouble. They are even good enough to tell you that you can uninstall your game and reinstall it to solve any glitching and everything will be great b/c they have a backup of your game saved..... BE WARNED!!!!! THEY DON’T!!!! Customer care is a joke!!! My 4 year old is more helpful. You will lose everything for good. Very hard lesson learned here. A LOT of time and energy wasted. DON&#39;t WASTE YOUR TIME PEOPLE! I will be deleting this game as soon as I hit send!
No reward for watching videos
by ATMM16 on 2017/12/05 07:42
Another update: The problems I stated below still haven&#39;t been fixed and yet there&#39;s a bug for the daily goals. Today, I completed all 3 daily goals and was supposed to get the wheel spin prize. However, at the daily goals page, it says I only completed 1 out of 3 goals when obviously I completed 3. Developers really need to read all these reviews and fix these problems or else people might stop playing your game. Update: I started a game at Medieval Dines: Bavaria Fest, but just seconds after I started the game, it forced me out of that level and the supplies and VIP I used were lost. The game itself didn&#39;t crash, but there&#39;s just this small glitch that forces back out of the level I&#39;m playing, I don&#39;t know if it&#39;s only this certain level or the game itself. Please fix this error. It used to be guaranteed a gold or amount of time to prep recipes reduced. But now every time I watch a video to earn gold or to reduce the time to prep recipes, I never receive the gold or the amount of time to prepare recipes stays the same. Developers need to recognize this bug in the game and fix it. Players wouldn&#39;t want to waste time watching videos just to get nothing back in return. They also need to realize that gold is very hard to get, everything costs a lot of gold as you unlock more restaurants, but gold being rewarded is not enough for even 1 upgrade. This needs to be fixed in order for players to enjoy the game.
Fun but fraudulent
by -Anonymous_ on 2017/08/31 23:27
First off your not gonna get anywhere or complete anything in the game without spending money; which I wouldn&#39;t mind doing from time to time if I didn&#39;t get lied to by free offers. Several times I have wasted my precious time completing these offers only to not get rewarded and then customer support refuses to payout, even when they realize you have in fact completed the offer. After the last time, I refused to download or play this game any longer. But the game is fun if you have the money to spend or actually get your rewards; and so I thought you know, maybe I gave up on Fyber too early. I came back and completed an offer for which you had to reach level 10 in final fantasy. If you&#39;ve played final fantasy or any game like it you know how long it takes to reach level 10 or upgrade anything to level 10. It took me three days only to not receive my rewards. When contacting customer support they refused to payout claiming that they paid out when I reached level 6. However I only got 82 when the original reward was 500. Now I come on here to read the reviews and see if anyone else feels the same way and holy cow, everyone does! Please fyber if your not gonna value people&#39;s time money or even interest in your game, just take it off the market. I will be deleting and not playing anymore and letting everyone know about the long shortcomings of this game. I mean come on, it&#39;s getting pretty disrespectful.
False advertising
by Squishie2016 on 2019/05/27 07:59
As others have said, the game itself is fun. In order to get to new levels you need lots of gold. You need it to upgrade your restaurant. You can purchase gold with real money or there are, “Free” offers. These are managed by an unethical company, TapJoy. Free offers are usually very time consuming. If you want your reward you need to screenshot everything, even with doing that they will not always give you your rewards. There are several misleading and fraudulent advertisements on the site. It will say, enter an e-mail and answer a short survey. That short survey is never ending and takes you to a million more questions, prompting you to give them all your information and trying to sell you a multitude of items. One offer was to download a game and get to a certain level. It took me a month as the game was awful, then I never got my reward. Then I downloaded Tinder for a free two day trial. Tinder required my credit card information. Fine. I was charged three times, by three different companies the first night (so no free trial).This caused my credit card company to put a fraud alert on my credit card. Tinder never gave me an account. Even with a screenshot of the charges, TapJoy would not give me my gold. They say to contact Tinder , who has yet to respond after a week. TapJoy doesn’t always respond either. GLU says, contact TapJoy. Seriously, considering deleting the game, depending on if I can ever get my issue resolved.
Glitches Give You Stitches
by SirKnowsALot on 2019/01/20 03:50
I was loving this game, becoming obsessed with it every time I started playing. Growing up with Diner Dash, this game was really exciting to have. Yet recently, the game glitches quite a few times. In order to play a round, you have to give in 10 grocery bags, like using a coin to play a game in an arcade. You have to be patient if you want more without having to pay for them. So I wait patiently all the time. But quite a few times, I used my grocery bags and I pressed play, and the game took me back to the main menu, where all the restaurants are. It made me upset, because it wouldn’t let me play, but it took the groceries I used to play as well... I keep playing, even though it happened 4 or five times more. But I became angry when I waited 6 hours for one of the power boosters that I prepared in the prep kitchen, and then used it to play and it did the same thing. I waited six entire hours. It’s probably just a glitch, but sometimes it feels as though that may be an intentional thing to get people to spend more money on a free app. I don’t like buying in-app purchases because if I ever lose my account, then what? And I was going to play with a booster just before writing this, and it did it again. This makes me furious, so I wouldn’t recommend this game until this problem gets fixed.
They never answer
by mommaT412 on 2019/05/19 23:57
I’ve been playing this game since Diner Dash. I love playing the games. However, you write them and the don’t answer. And if they do answer it’s usually some whack response. I have purchased gold, tickets, lives and venues using real money. I never asked for anything accept to fix my issues that I write you about. Another downside to this game is the take to long to put new venues out. I have played and mastered every venue. I have been waiting for months for them to unlock the Thai arcade venue. Please don’t get me started on those bug fixes that crashes my game. I ‘be been stuck on fame tier 99 since 2018. I wrote them they wrote back not addressing my issue. But some cockey mammy response. I say all of this to say if you’re just starting out. Find another time management game. They move too slow and cost a lot of money. You will get bored once you’re at my level. Just waiting for them to unlock a venue. If the game has come to an end they should say so. Very disappointed with the Glu team. Homescapes is a very good game try it.
Lost progress - bad customer services
by annoyedcustomer13 on 2018/08/30 15:00
I’ve been playing this game for a few years and I love it, but I’m about to delete it because of recent bugs and loss of progress with no help from customer service. I don’t mind spending some real money on it because it’s the only game I play. About a year ago, there must have been a bug in the game and I lost my progress, but customer service was amazing and helped me get it back to almost exactly where I was . HOWEVER, I just lost a significant amount of my progress from about a month of playing, including the new restaurant that I already bought and finished two seasons. I used lots of gold and valuable prep recipes to get that progress. Customer service eventually claimed they couldn’t detect any loss of progress, so could not compensate me. After all the time and money I spent on this game I find that unacceptable. I know they can see it from their end because it happened before! I’m still waiting for another response but I’m very disappointed.
Good bars are a must yet hard to come by
by miss_eyez87 on 2017/11/01 20:59
I have been playing this game for a few months now and I&#39;ve fallen in love with it, however the Gold wall where u go to get free food by completing different task doesn&#39;t always work and sometimes I&#39;ll break my neck to do a task waiting for hours to get my reward and a lot of time i don&#39;t. Also now the Gold wall to get coins isn&#39;t working it&#39;s been an issue all day. This game was once fun but it be better if the gold bars were a bit easier to come by especially when it comes to upgrades. I can already tell with this game that eventually I&#39;ll stop playing all together and delete the app you guys seem to take the fun out of it I don&#39;t want to spend real money on a game when the coins go so quickly please make it a bit easier or I&#39;ll just delete and free up some space on my phone. Update: what ever happend to the extra finale and “buying flo clothes” that you guys added on and took away? Why does the app take so long downloading restaurants I can’t even play the game because I have to wait for them to download I’m beginning to get tired of this game where I see myself deleting the app completely
Shame on Glu
by Calamities on 2019/05/12 16:51
2 stars because you can play about a week before you would wind up spending more and more money to progress. I’ve been playing for about 2 weeks, and I loved it, but I’m about to quit. The first level is easy to get through and basically free, but as you progress with each level, you need more and more gold. The offers to earn free gold will never be enough to allow progress at any reasonable level without spending money…and lots of it. I’ve forked over some cash—developers have to eat, companies need revenue—because it’s a fun game, but I’m curious how many people have gotten sucked into this game and had money sucked out of them because it’s so easy to purchase something with your thumb. I’m about done with this game. I’d pay a small amount for each restaurant, but if you monetize the amount of gold required to complete a restaurant based on the “purchase” to open it and upgrades, you’re looking at $2.99 per game and it will take you a several days earning free gold to get past the first season of restaurants after the 2nd one. Glu must be making money, but they may make more by considering reasonable price points that would encourage players to continue.
Money Hungary
by Sugar Sweet KC on 2018/08/19 20:54
This game is money Hungary. I’ve had this game since it came out and have had to reset it 50 plus times because no matter what you do, you can’t win. You spend tons of money and upgrade your tail off and still ya can’t win. It takes months to get anywhere and you can’t even barely win the competitions! I’ve almost fully upgraded restaurants and even bought the auto chef. And served everything fast and perfectly, still lose. Over and over. I used to waitress for 20 plus years, and bartended, too. I was the cook, waitress, chef maid and all, and I’m now a professional chef... They call me The Tasmanian devil, “Taz”... because I could spin circles in the restaurant and serve perfectly and speedy, and I was so smiley and chipper and made people’s day, they called me the perfect waitress. So I can run circles around this game and if in real life they were really the waiter,cook, chef, whatever, they could not run circles around me at all in the real world. And one more thing, if ya mess a plate up, in the real world you can set it down. And remake and wrap the food and save it or sell for someone who needs it. You can set it down, right? Well not in the game. Real not real world at all. I’ve found way better cooking games that don’t take your money and run.
Fun game but updates have cause crashes
by Sugartoes on 2018/02/28 20:06
I’ve been playing this game awhile now, and very recently have had issues with the game crashing while in the midst of a game. Customer service has attempted to assist but there solutions were to uninstall and reinstall and finally they removed the Trial style stating that the since they had new games going on that “could be” the problem, or my device, which is new they said it could be outdated. I’m disappointed that they just removed the trial style rather than leave it after all the time and games I’ve played and also made in-app purchases only to have it all lost! Thanks customer service for just throwing my gold down the drain.... players BEWARE!!!!! Expect to lose money with no real solution and or compensation. I don’t think they can even bring back the level reached which has all gone to WASTE! Thanks GLU! 🤬🤬🤬

Ok, so I still like the game~but use to love it. Any and all updates mean you&#39;re going to pay if you want to enjoy the game to it&#39;s fullest..and of course, this is just wrong. I&#39;m not sure why the developers ask for feedback and reviews when it&#39;s pretty obvious to the players that you aren&#39;t listening...once you get the all mighty Facebook &#34;Like&#34; you seem to think your work is done. Not even close. Here&#39;s an example..You give us a great new ice cream restaurant to run with a hoppin, groovin auto chef who doesn&#39;t give you the correct ice cream to serve your current customer...nice. No matter how you try, you are either going to loose that customer or run out of time trying to get the right order from the chef as you can no longer choose which flavor you want once you have auto chef in play. So, I&#39;ve wasted my VIP, my regular and my 10 groceries...NUMEROUS TIMES. I could go on, but not worth any more of my time. Just beware when you play~it isn&#39;t all cake, there are a lot of brussel sprouts in there as well.
Long time cooking dash fan
by Mynicknamename2222214 on 2019/02/13 23:00
I am a long time fan of Flo and her games. I played the original diner dash and cooking dash iPhone games and beat them completely. That helps me understand why they have added so much to the game (keeps it fresh, theoretically). But it is very overwhelming as a new user. This stuff should be gated and introduced slowly as you unlock more levels. Also, after beating all of the intro restaurant, I have not earned enough to open a new one. I guess I should not have been upgrading my appliances and such. I agree with another reviewer who said it is very hard to play this game without spending money, and that is a major disappointment for me. I am the queen of playing games like this without ever spending real money. I usually just grind along and have slower progress. But that is just not possible in this game. I would gladly buy a version of this game that did not offer in-app purchases or all the dang ads (and yes- they were not very present at first and now it is after every dang level). But oh well. That is not offered. I was happy to see Flo again, but she’s about to get deleted.
Not what it used to be
by I want my gold!!!!! on 2017/09/03 11:25
I love this game. Absolutely love this game. I didn&#39;t mind spending the money to play this game until spending money on this game is the only option you have to get gold or further your game play. (Breathe). On a daily basis you used to be able to collect gold by watching these (expletive) videos. I&#39;d even supplement my habit by throwing money into the game for more gold (again, it&#39;s a great game). Now, if you&#39;re lucky when you watch a video you have a 50/50 chance of getting what they promised you&#39;d received. I don&#39;t know who to compare this relationship to a bad boss, a deadbeat dad (only read about them, mine is great) or a loser bf. Either way it&#39;s disappointing, sad and not what it used to be in the beginning. Yea, these developers are the loser bf. Imagine if we all packed our bags and left. Yes, we&#39;d sadly miss the abusive relationship but we&#39;d have a tad bit more money in our pockets and our self esteem in tact (lollll. We would no longer be subject to your lies. Wait, I have to spend 300 gold to open up the last celeb spot in Jamaican Me Hungry? My upgrades are all at 100 and that&#39;s the only thing preventing me from getting a perfect score. Kiss my (expletive).
Fun but ridiculous!
by bicha_unika on 2019/01/12 21:24
So let&#39;s start by saying I absolutely loved this game I came acrossed it from an add on another game and downloaded it immediately as it intrigued me right away! It started off very well and made sense now as I&#39;m trying to get past the first level I thought I was terrible at it and had to spend real life money just to get by. I came over to read the reviews to find its not me who is the problem it&#39;s the design of the game that sets you up to fail. I think if you&#39;re going to make a game it should make sense! For example why am I able to earn the stars &amp; coins necessary to get ahead no problem in the beginner levels but as it gets harder my reward is less? That makes no sense don&#39;t you think? Also, for as many VIP tickets you need to get passed tale steaks for your game to not help with rewarding those thru out the game is pretty ridiculous if you ask me. Hopefully after all the reviews that have been shared someone makes a change. I definitely won&#39;t be playing anymore since I now know it won&#39;t get me anywhere.
Nothing works
by reeen11 on 2018/10/06 06:47
Yes it’s fun. But as everyone else has been stating, it is super expensive if you want to advance to level 4 of a restaurant. It is really not about your skill at all, because the developer made it so that the only way you can move on to certain level is by upgrading either equipment or ingredients which is costly. Say you think you will play as fast as you can and memorize the sequence of food order, still you realize that you can’t move up if you do not upgrade. Other problem, I used to just play ad to get free gold (about 8 a day). Now the videos are not even working. So no more free gold... ridiculous. Here’s the break down. You will need about 750 gold at least to get min 3 golds on all level for 1 restaurant. That is about $50 plus some free gold. Multiply that with the number of restaurant, wow, you can actually buy a used car... Note, the program of the game is actually almost similar with all the restaurants. You were just given different setting, and ingredients, etc, n you are playing similar game over n over again. Pssst... And they think we don’t know that... We do. I’m writing this to campaign: not to feed the greeds...
Great game spoiled by issues
by *%^^#* on 2017/12/11 03:19
I absolutely loved every game with Flo, from Diner Dash Classic to Hotel Dash, so i decided Cooking Dash was worth a shot. The game is very fun; its layout is creative and the premise is challenging, but still enjoyable. The problems come in with glitches and game mechanics. Firstly, videos often do not give rewards as they as supposed to. Secondly, it is very hard to get anywhere after the first show/restaurant, Table Steaks. I was unable to get more than 1 star on many levels in the Eats for Earth restaurant even with upgrades. It is implied that you must spend real money to get anywhere in the game, which I (along with many other players) refuse to do. Thirdly, the game has glitches. I recently experienced a glitch where the game suddenly gave me (no exaggeration) 8,000,000 experience and leveled me up nonstop. I am unable to leave the Level Up screen, and I am unable to play the game any longer due to the inescapable screen. If this game was adjusted, it would easily earn 5 stars. However, due to its issues, it is only worthy of 2 stars. It’s a shame that such a good game is ruined by its monumental issues.
Can’t Progress Without Spending Money
by Pullkat on 2019/07/07 22:55
I really loved this game at first! If you spend on upgrades wisely, (not needed after every single level, only when you can’t complete a level with 3 stars) then the game is fairly easy but still challenging enough. I was able to complete all the levels in the first restaurant with full stars (can’t remember if it’s 3 or 5) but then before you can open a new restaurant, you have to do a series of 5 special levels. You spend VIP tickets to enter these levels. I failed on the 3rd round and it made me start over back to round 1. But the kicker is... I didn’t have enough VIP tickets to play again. So I went to the store to see if I could watch an add, trade my coins, or do anything to earn more tickets but the ONLY way to get them is to spend money. The least amount was $1.99 which isn’t bad, but I wondered how many other times this would happen where the only way to progress is to spend money. It starts to add up. So I decided to quit while I was ahead and deleted the game! Such a shame! Purchases should be optional for players who want to get ahead faster, not required for anyone who wants to play at all!
finally have to say i’m done with this game...
by newsoulwhodis on 2018/07/16 02:10
after playing on and off for about 3 years now, i’m deciding to put it down. plainly, it’s too money hungry. no matter how strategic your moves are, the game is formulated so that it’s impossible to get even 3 stars on some levels, much less the most desirable 5 stars. the only way to get them is by using gold to upgrade appliances and food worth etc. it has NOTHING to do with how good you are at playing after a while! it’s just a mind game! in-app purchases are constantly shoved in the players face, with crazy unrealistic expectations to obtain the stupid clothing/pet/auto chef wheel deal prizes. they continue to add restaurant after restaurant hoping to peak your interest to cash out another 25 gold just to unlock it, for you to inevitably find out that you’re beginning down a brand new cycle of having 0 upgrades. as a player, accept that you will NEVER complete every set of stars/golden saucers/outfit or whatever other set of accomplishments they put in front of you. ugh! i like fun mobile games and choosing to support companies through in-app purchases, but this not fun anymore!
Fun game...but. Terrible support and basic money gobbling app
by Nuña Biz on 2018/09/09 04:41
It’s fun. I like the game, and I never mind spend8ng money on apps that entertain me. That being said. Their support doesn’t know up from down. Takes days to respond and they don’t really read your questions. About the money grab aspect of the game. A. You can’t progress without spending money. Period. B. Half the stuff you ‘win’ in events you can’t even use cause their game is need of a serious update. Been playing the game for a year and since the last update months ago they made the ‘wheel’ unable to use. They keep creating events with awards for meeting milestones that are unavailable to use. It’s kinda ridiculous. And the support seems oblivious. Apparently they didn’t get the update in India. Idk. That being said.,..it’s a fun game. Spend 20/week and have plenty of entertainment. Great concept and moderately good game play. If they actually gave rewards that were usable I’d rate higher...but the principal if not being able to use a reward is irritating, hence the poor review. Just be warmed...
Love This Game!! Super Fun!!
by iamrazed on 2020/02/03 18:25
I am a fan of Diner Dash games. I’ve been playing since the very first version of Diner Dash. The latest Cooking Dash installment is the best of all their versions of Flo and her Diner Dash series. Honorable Mentions - the original Cooking Dash, Diner Dash: Flo on the Go AND Cooking Dash: Diner Town Studios. These are must-trys. Back to the review. Yes, you will be need to use your own money to get the game started. TIPS: 1) Buy 300 gold in the bundle and get started. Start with small upgrades that are absolutely necessary. In the Prep Kitchen, get the Auto Chef, Time Bonuses, and Fast Flow (or any combo of the other prep kitchen chefs) and play! Keep all the chefs in rotation especially the Auto Chef and it will help you advance. Find more tips online in how to beat each level effectively! Good luck! 2) If you come across a glitch or other issues while playing, click on the round orange button on the bottom right then Customer Care (green button in the middle). You can look and find answers through their Q&amp;A board or click on Contact Us on the very upper right corner and send them your questions/issues. I have taken a brief break from the game, but now back to speed with “I’m Really Inuit,” “Jungle Joint,” and “Pad Thai Pinball.” Cooking Dash is a super fun game (challenging at times) and I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
Love the game, but the cost is insane
by Frankay101 on 2017/12/01 02:00
The new addition of the trial of style is the biggest waste of time, money, gold, etc. you work for days to complete these levels, and the top three places get the premium (not even the top) wheel spin. Below that, you get ONE fast flow or something even less valuable. It only takes 4 hours (or less) to prep fast flow. Why would I want to work through like 20 levels to just get that? It’s not worth it, and you can’t use coins or gold to get tickets, but you have to use an insane amount to get through the trial of style. If I were the game makers, I would highly reconsider the reward for that much game play. This game itself is ridiculously addicting. What’s annoying is the amount of money it takes. I’m almost embarrassed at the amount of money I’ve spent over time. PlayStation games with far better graphics and intense game play still only cost $50-60. One could easily pay $100 or more to fully enjoy this game. It’s just a little asinine.
We need more gold, not more gimmicks!
by Jeff Vader025 on 2017/12/16 19:09
I have been playing this game off and on for quite some time and overall this is a very good game. The problem with it is the fact that you need gold for absolutely everything! You can&#39;t even buy the most basic of upgrades without needing gold once you get past the first restaurant. In most other time management games I play the basic and absolutely essential upgrades can be bought with standard currency and the high end upgrades that makes things easier for you cost premium currency. So, now we can customize Flo&#39;s appearance with wardrobe items that are very hard to earn without spending more money? For the most part that just sounds like another gimmick to me. Give those of us on a budget what we really need.... more opportunities to earn free gold, so we can actually get somewhere and open more than just the first few restaurants!
Great game but...
by thenevman on 2018/02/04 16:39
This game is really fun to play, but Some of the restaurants that you can buy are way too expensive. Like some of the restaurants cost like 10,000 coins or more. Over time you will probably get that much coins to buy some of the restaurants but then by the time you get enough coins to buy a certain restaurant there would’ve already been like 5-10 other restaurants that you could buy that are close to the same price as the restaurant that you have been working on to get since the beginning. The main problem with this is that in episodes you don’t really get a lot of coins from customers. Overall though this is a great game and the episodes don’t really take long to Finnish so, this is a really fun game.
Money Grabbing
by Karbunny on 2018/02/10 22:30
This is a very fun game to play. The animation is wonderful. It’s fast pace and for those who need to relax, this is something to center your attention on. The levels increase as you go which is fun. The more you reach your level, the more you get. You do get surprise guest ( customers) who will increase your coin level to reach the next level. DOWNFALL: If you do not want to go broke, I would not recommend this game. This game is money hungry. I am aware that they have to make money but will all the advertisements which pop up, they should be fine. What both me is the fact that there is no real win to this game. You can’t buy the next level until you complete the challenge. Surprise! When you beat the level you have a challenge. Another surprise!! You can’t beat the challenge unless you purchase more gold and coins. If you beat the first challenge and lose the 2nd challenge, you go back to the 1st challenge. No one should be forced to do the challenge if you do not want too. I liked the old game years back. You could play at a good level without all the new challenges and without almost giving them a days salary to pay a game. Beside, what do you get at the end, nothing but another ad and a pop up to buy more coins. Hope this helps people who struggle in life and do not want to put their gas money into a game. Lovely game but to expensive
Money hungry, and lies.
by Ala6182 on 2018/09/24 22:56
When I played this game for the first time I thought it was quite nice. Over time I got more and more into the game and I saw the bad side. I decided to that I should get gold. I didn’t want to pay, so I decided to watch a video. When I’m done with the video I look and see I had the sane amount of gold I did before. I call customer service and they say a bunch of lies and then say “Maybe just uninstall and reinstall the app. We have data saved.” I then do that and NO DATA WAS SAVED! I spent a lot of time on that. I call customer service again and they claim “We never told you to do that. We’re sorry for this event.”....What? They tell me to uninstall and reinstall the app, then claim that they never told me to do that? I then asked, “Well can I at least have the gold that I called for in the first place?” And they’re response is, “We don’t remember a call from yesterday coming from this. We are sorry but the only this to do is assume you won’t free gold”. And they left. That day, I uninstalled the app and never, will I play that game again.
Too expensive. But stupid fun.
by KitsuneDemon on 2018/01/08 06:17
The thing is, Cooking Dash is extremely expensive, especially when you want to 100% upgrade your restaurants to earn better points for the Trials of Style Against other people. What makes me even more mad than the high cost? Ramsay Dash is cheaper than this game. Ramsay Dash also awards more gold daily and weekly than Cooking Dash. The deals? Worse than the ones offered in Ramsay Dash. If you want to play a less expensive game I’m sure the choice is pretty clear. However, I am optimistic that the game devs might take this into consideration and decide to be more generous with their gold in this game. I generally am more willing to part with a few $$ if the deals are fair and the game is generous as Counter-productive as it sounds. Why? Because I like supporting F2P friendly games so they continue being generous. That’s also a way to attract serious minded players like I like to consider myself, and other fans of this series, to be. Please Glu, be more generous... it pays off. Really.
Uhhh... where are my gold wings?
by Just_Kween on 2018/10/11 20:34
So everythime I pass a level. I get my 5 stars.... I also serve all my customers to get the gold wings.... so when I noticed I wasn’t getting them I redid all the levels to get them. And when I did that the following day the gold wings were gone again..... now I wanna keep my wings but every time I do the level it goes away and my wings are gone. But I keep my 5 stars.. I want. Y wings. So I’m gonna need you guys to fix that or give me my gold wings back from my levels... why should I have to play and use my energy to get the level to be gold when I know I served all my customers and got my 5 Stars. The more you don’t fix it the more I’m gonna go down in stars until I don’t play the game no more...I’ve never had an issue with the Gordon ramsey game ... and I actually like this game although u guys want real money half the time and Gordon Ramsey is reasonable but u guys over price things with the gold and whatnot
Needs Improving !!
by Jzekhyria on 2018/01/03 07:32
1 ) i’m tired of trying to play my game then it goes back to the home screen ! when uu click a place to begin working &amp; uu press the grocery thingy so it could take ten away it loads for about ten seconds then it stop &amp; my ten grocery thingies are gone 🤨! then i gave to wait more time , that bothers me . 2 ) these ads that say it’s gone give uu gold or money or more grocery thingies be lyin ! it says it’s a quick little video so i watch it play the game if it’s a game &amp; it still hasn’t gone away .. annoying ! normal games the ads only last fifteen seconds thirty the most .. so i’m not understanding . 3 ) it’s soooooo hard to get money . in one day uu only get like a hundred and fifty coins and that pays for nothing !! i had to redo all my levels just to get enough coins to upgrade my stuff 🙄 done waste ur time getting this .. it starts out fun until uu get to the third season of the first thingy .. hope it helped 🤩
Loved old game but...
by Mumto9 on 2019/04/16 12:21
The new game seemed like it would so much fun with all the new restaurants etc. However there are glitches that don&#39;t pay out, buying bundles that take 3 days to get credited to your account, and expensive to keep playing. Why can&#39;t they just make a new and improved version of Diner Dash without stealing cash? It&#39;s not fun when it is so hard to go up a level, earn improvements, or forced to pay 10 groceries to replay the same level? I feel if you bought that level with your groceries you should be able to try it over and over until you pass. They have made the levels too hard to get through and just have fun. Food items look too similar and you mess up cooking wrong items and running out of time in taco train. I don&#39;t know, as much as I love the concept they got too greedy, care more about raking your wallet through the coals then having a great fun game.
Great Game/Terrible Customer Service
by DontDoIt87 on 2018/07/23 15:36
This is a great game, it’s definitely one you’ll need to spend real world money in order to make any real advancements. This wouldn’t be too bad if what you paid for was actually yours to keep. Instead you lose a lot of the boosts you pay for when the game glitches. I never in my life thought I’d be someone who pays to play a game. But it’s an addictive one once you get started. If I’m putting my money into something I expect to get every last cent of it’s worth. I’ve complained and written several messages to the customer service stating I either want the boosts that I lose due to their glitches returned to my game or to reimbursed for the money I spent on stuff that was taken from me. I have yet to receive a response several days later and this is the second time I’ve complained about this issue with no resolution. For this very reason, I will not pay to play this game again. And I would suggest no one start to play. They have no recourse when it comes to solving issues.
Diner Dash
by LucJac2 on 2017/12/16 15:57
Addicting game but could&#39;ve been better if there are more ways to earn the gold bars. Also, it&#39;s disappointing that I need to use gold bars in upgrading items instead of just using money. Gold bars are hard to get and the free ways to earn the gold bars are misleading (except of course for the videos). They tell you to just submit valid information and you&#39;ll earn gold bars but after you do, you get nothing- a) cause the sponsor did not send you a confirmation email and b) cause you actually need to do tons of survey and the likes! Plus, because you registered, you will now get millions of ad emails. It gets more frustrating trying to communicate with their customer support because they would just tell you the same thing over and over again (like copy and paste from a script) without really trying to understand the issue at hand. I think they don&#39;t care about customers anymore but have become solely a profit-focused company.
Love the game!
by Nicflertruckle on 2019/05/27 17:09
This game is a lot of fun, but could use some improvements. First things first, I hate how long it takes to prep some recipes! The longest ones I have at the moment take TWO DAYS! And it just gets longer from there! It would really be great if they were shorter, like twenty minutes each, maybe? Anyway, the other thing is about watching videos for free gold. Don’t get me wrong, I love the free gold, I just think instead of only getting one gold, I think you should get two. My reason is that pretty much everything requires gold and gold is kind of hard to come by at times. What would be amazing, would be if every day the game would award you a few gold. Kind of like the deal wheel, you know, every day you get like maybe two gold. Thank you for reading my review and I hope to see these changes made to the game. God bless!
Addicting but glitchy
by Heather1970beez on 2017/08/17 10:48
This game is very fun, challenging, and addicting. There are many levels and goals to earn bonuses so that you can improve your odds. Many weekends there are additional bonuses, like extra gold drops or no penalty for playing. I had set this game down for almost a year and picked it back up recently. A year ago there were no issues with the videos you can watch to earn certain power ups - tedious, but necessary if you want to upgrade sooner. Now, however, there are glitches in the videos....I don&#39;t know how many times I have watched a video now that did not give me the promised upgrades. In the past, if I had met the quota for the day I would get a message that said there were no more videos and to try again later. Overall, one of my all-time faves....hope they fix the glitches.
Years of progress gone
by DanielleLuna927 on 2018/07/27 16:27
I loved this game for years. As other reviewers have said over the last few months the game needed to redownload every restaurant every time you opened the app (even when you hadn’t fully closed the app). I thought about deleting the game but ended up getting used to it even though it was very annoying. Then the special events wouldn’t load until all the restaurants had loaded so I would think I was making progress in a loaded restaurant goal but it wouldn’t count. The game started crashing more and more losing groceries and vip customers. Then last week, my entire account was gone. I would open the game and be at the tutorial. I tried closing the app and reopening, signing in and out of my account, deleting the app and redownloading... nothing worked. Years worth of progress gone. I had all but the newest restaurant and 5 stars with all customers served on every level of the majority of those restaurants....
Please fix this
by Du€|< on 2019/11/14 02:39
Let me start by saying I absolutely love this game! It’s honestly an addiction. And the problem I have, isn’t a very large, one but one I’m sure a lot of people can agree on. Some of these levels, I feel are designed to make it impossible to get five stars in. I have played games multiple times in a row. 5-6. With different boosts and recipes. But yet I’m not given enough coins to make it to five stars. I’ve tried getting them by collecting coins in tip bonuses. And nothing. Now I’m OCD, and obsessive. I like to see five golden stars on each of my levels. I feel as if all customers are served, an extra boost of coins should be added to help possibly get to the five stars if close enough. Other then that, I very much enjoy this game. And I have been obsessed since I was a kid. If this is fixed, I will definitely give it five stars.
They want your real money!
by Tumbelina on 2018/05/04 17:22
This game is fun but they made it so difficult to progress or upgrade unless you spend real money and lots of it. I wouldn’t mind to go back to the old way - you pay for the game once and it’s all good. However I refuse to pay real money for freeware games. The reason is that if you pay once it would get you covered for a short period of time and then you have to spend money again and again. It’s a viscous cycle. I don’t mind watching commercials, though. My problem is that some developers (this one) make their games almost impossible to complete without paying real money even though they still make money from the gazillions of ads! And let’s talk about the offers that get you “free” gold. Often times they don’t pay out as promised or at all and CS does not respond at all. They do if the offer is for a few measly coins but if it is a lot - forget about it. Bottom line - the idea behind this game is good but the way they try to make money is not honest. Goodbye!
The support and fyber have made this game not worth playing
by PoochieJoles on 2018/07/09 04:44
Besides the fact they allow fyber to do the free offers even alot of paid offers and they cheat you out of your gold fyber took all my offers off for over 2 months i have had none and they told me to be patient i contacted support for the game and talked to beejay and he did nothing i sent a normal message and he told me i was being abusive and other things i asked how 4 times he ignored the questions told me to check my pop up blocker i did sent him a screen shot he asked for a image of the conversation i had with fyber so he could further investigate i sent the screen shot he said like they said u just have to wait ... really??? I asked for a phone number to speak to a manager he ended our conversation i am erasing the game and recommend u dont do the free offers and hope u dont need support :) There’s. Non stop issues with it crashing non stop and I have to uninstall and re install the app an I lose everything
Great app!
by Sexi A on 2018/01/02 20:41
I ablsohtly love this game. I was completely sadden when the developer did not update the first diner dash app. With that being said this game is great, I only have two issues. The first one is the advertisement within the game keeps getting stuck as well as other setting in the game, for example when I click on “closet” it gets stuck as soon as it opens and I can not go back to the home page. I she constantly keep closing out the app everyone to start over. The second is that you have to use 10 of your fruits/good to play a game. This goes buy to quickly and forces you to stop playing once you run out of supplies. Once they fix those issues for me this game will be number 1 for me.
Beware...You will spend money
by ice 1ce on 2018/06/29 05:21
Like other reviewers, I love and hate this game. Love it because it’s a fun game, but hate it since it’s such a money grabber -more so now with the updated gameplay. If you don’t buy the chef, you may not get that far to do the other challenges for that particular restaurant. There are costume and pet upgrades but it takes forever to get them if you don’t spend real money. I’ve played this one for years, spent some money here and there but am considering deleting it. I am just tired of where they’ve gone with this game. Frustrating not being able to achieve 5-star levels (which you’ll need for other game challenges) without paying gold. So beware: If you’re willing to spend real money, then you’ll probably enjoy this game. If you don’t want to spend, don’t get started or play until you can’t anymore.
Irritated AF
by joce101 on 2019/01/27 01:18
Ever since I updated it to the newest version, every time I open the app it says multiple crashes and then lists my player ID.... I’ve never had this problem and it’s so irritating. If not fixed soon I’m over this game Also other suggestions: there should be 2-3 more daily goals to let players get a few more gold who do not wanna pay your stupid prices for this game The amount of stupid ads while playing this game is also getting g ridiculous and becoming Another deterrent... like is this game worth the stupid ads.. And lastly, to get gold which is nearly impossibly without paying except watching the few adds each day, you should allow users to watch 4-8 more adds a day than what’s already offered. Otherwise this game has become ridiculously to progress unless you wanna pay $$$ and I know I’m not the only one that feels that way And last suggestion, I wish there was also the option - similar to dinner dash in which you can play st venues without a time limit but you need an appropriate customer satisfaction. That would also be fun and could be another way in which users could Try to earn gold. Plz consider this and PLZ come out with an update soon cuz it’s been 1 week since I’ve been able to even play this game Since I updated and I’m sure if I look, I can find another game similar I enjoy Plz cooking dash, step it the f**** up
Best and worst game at the same time

I never knew such thing existed, until I started to play this game. Gameplay is so attractive and addictive that you just cannot stop playing. It’s challenging but it’s not frustrating. The levels get harder but you also find yourself better at the game. However, invest/reward system of this game is so bad. If you are like me, a perfectionist, you just have to earn that five star and serve all the customers possible in each level. Don’t ask me why, some people are just designed this way. Anyway, this means that you might need to upgrade all materials to level 2, save up gold bars for auto chef, get the VIP prep recipe, and be mentally super concentrated (for taco train for example). Now this might sounds like nothing but it is almost impossible. Upgrading materials require gazillion gold bars, and auto chefs cost so much (100) bars later on. The worst part is when you complete a free offer, half of the time you don’t get the reward (for example downloading an app, level up in Final Fantasy, etc.) You find yourself stuck in the game because you don’t have enough coins or gold bar for upgrading in the next show, and you are tired of playing the same show to earn coins. If you are going to spend real money, you would enjoy this outstanding game. If you want it free, move on and play some other free games.
Fun and addictive but...

I really enjoy this game and it is addictive! I bought a bundle that included removal of all ad’s which I highly recommend to anyone that plays this game regularly because those ad’s are a huge nuisance and not having to deal with them has made all the difference. I’m saving up to get an iPad because I’m currently playing on my phone which is not easy on my eyes and unfortunately causes me to make the wrong dish at times. My main complaints with this game is that you really need a lot of gold bars and coins to excel in this game therefore you need to purchase them with your real money. I do sometimes and don’t get me wrong you can get free gold by watching videos and/or completing offers, but you still need more. I would watch more ad’s but there’s a limit! I hate the limit! The other complaint is one that there’s not really anything that can be done about it. The more you play the game and the more restaurants that you open the longer it takes to load!!! It’s so frustrating. I have about seven currently and it takes a really long time to load. It’s almost frustrating enough to quit. Just imagine when I have 20 or more open. 🤔 I guess I’ll see how much worse it gets.
Play a game, don’t be the game!

First of all, the game itself is nicely done, with quality graphics, a well-thought out experience and no technical problems. The first “restaurant” even makes sense, with your skill mostly driving the results and the coins &amp;/or gold that are needed for items at reasonable levels. After the first restaurant, though, things go downhill. There is little connection between ability and game success. It’s nearly impossible to score more than one or two stars in some levels without upgrades and the upgrades are a ridiculously high number of coins &amp;/or gold bars. There are opportunities to “earn” free coins or gold, which I took advantage of, but the only reliable source is watching videos, and you can’t earn enough that way. I set my spending limit at $10, which is more than I’d spend on most games for my phone. I’ve reached that, so I’ll be deleting this game now. I wanted to play a game, not BE THE GAME!!
Fun game play, hard to progress
by Sassycassy343 on 2019/12/05 16:23
I love this game. There are so many fun levels that are uniquely themed and just overall super cute. The only thing is that it is nearly impossible to progress. Unlike Restaurant Dash with Gordon Ramsey, you hardly get any coins per level. And in Restaurant Dash, you can build up Gordon to immediately clear the customers you have in store, which helps earn more coins. Cooking Dash doesn’t have any sort of boost like that. So without earning more coins per level, you can’t purchase upgrades and then you just get stuck. I’ve honestly stopped playing because of that. But I’d like to play more, I’m just tired of playing the same levels over and over again trying to earn more to move on. Oh well, maybe the creators will finally update after all of the complaints🤷🏽‍♀️
Its pretty annoying

There’s so many hoops to go thru to play this game. I understand levels of a game but this game is ridiculous. The main requirement to play this game is GOLD. You can only get 3 GOLD per day by completing daily task + 8 additional GOLD by watching ad videos. It’s gets to the point where u have to patiently wait to collect GOLD everyday or spend your own money to play this game. You CANNOT complete certain episode because u need GOLD to upgrade the equipments, food and the restaurants. But by the rate your getting these GOLD without spending your own money....it’ll take you about 20 years to finish this game. My advice is maybe allow us to get 50 GOLD per day. There’s too many venues that requires upgrades and not to mention, you need GOLD access new venues. Why not just makes those venues FREE??? Since your already asking for GOLD for the stuff I mentioned.
Excellent game ruined by ridiculous high price tag
by Gracegsx on 2018/10/19 11:37
As far as gameplay goes the game definitely deserves a 5 star rating. It is unique in so many ways, challenging, funny, satisfying. The greed however is worth a solid 1 star rating. The problem is the ridiculous amount of premium currency (gold bars) you need to spend to access 95% of it. The price tags are unreasonably high for everything that costs gold and pretty much everything does if you want to progress at all. They make it VERY difficult to earn gold too. The challenge aspect increases way too steeply. You can easily spend 125 gold (premium currency) on upgrades for a single restaurant and only be able to master 10-15 more levels which can be pretty disheartening. 125 gold = $10. And a warning these upgrades DO NOT transfer to other restaurants. I want to spend real money if I felt it was worth it but considering $10 hardly gets you anywhere, it just is not worth it which is a real shame. The game REALLY needs to reduce the price significantly on gold purchases or gold costs because you are really losing out on hundreds of thousands of dollars in IAPs because of the ridiculously hard to swallow price tag you are putting on gold.
