Becoming a money pit ]
by DarkObsessed on 2021/04/16 15:22
I originally rated this game 5 stars, but I took off 2 stars because of how expensive this game has become. I’m either having to buy coins or gold in order to advance most times because new restaurants now cost lots of gold and coins, and you don’t make a ton of coins on the levels. Gold also takes a good while to obtain the free way, so most times you’re playing the same levels over and over to get enough coins to buy a new restaurant. The game used to be fun, but now I haven’t really touched it in months because of this.
Great game rubies by monetization
by lionkitty1111 on 2021/04/15 21:52
I have been playing the diner Dash series since it came out over a decade ago. This is the second worst diner Dash ever to come out. The game is basically unplayable because of the amount of content and the ridiculous cost of upgrades. During the gold rush event I earned about 70 gold. That is enough for maybe three or four upgrades. Each level requires dozens of upgrades that cost incrementally more. For example the first upgrade is five gold and the next is nine gold and then the next is 18 gold and then 30 gold.Multiply that by the three upgrade tabs (equip, food, restaurants) and the. Multiply that by 10 upgrades per tab. You’ll need between 400-1000 gold to beat ONE VENUE. There’s over a dozen and a half Venues. I have spent money on this game . I don’t mind paying. But $10 gets me 125 gold wow what a rip off. Too bad this game company ruined a perfectly good game
From very good to vey bad
by katrika on 2021/04/15 19:24
I finally uninstalled: game kept crashing and I lost lots of gold, vips and tickets. Kept contacting the customer service, eventually they would “refund”, but hey! why didn’t they fix the game?! I really don't get the point of many players: this game IS free, but if you are not good enough or impatient, you need to buy gold for real cash. Besides, game developers are real people who need to make a living, they're not in the NO PROFIT business... I have unlocked so far all but one of the restaurants, by getting 5 stars in most episodes (this unlocks the chest for each episode), winning trophies and, yes, watching a lot of videos. Lately there was also an offer to exchange 20.000 coins for a surprise box that contained gold and other goodies. This game wouldn't be as fun if it would be 100% free. My only critic is that the tasks in the Other Offers are never ending loops that get you nowhere. I have tried many of them and never got a sigle gold piece, so I just avoid them and go straight to the video offers. Perhaps the game administrators should look into that...
deleted everything
by kayla_051704 on 2021/04/15 07:07
i downloaded this game yesterday and i signed into my icloud to save my data in case i get a new phone i’d have my data saved . i go back into the game and all my data is gone it started me over from season 1 level 1 i lost all my money and all the upgrades i did on the game . i am very upset because i actually like the game a lot but i don’t want to start all the way over AGAIN 🤦🏽‍♀️.

My favorite game in the world 🌍
Game decline
by CatchnZzzs on 2021/04/14 16:10
* ultimately deleted* Trial of Style no longer available for play. Game has become increasingly glitchy.
Love it but frustrated
by Lollypop5955 on 2021/04/14 04:06
I love this game but there are so many glitches and it’s so frustrating when you need to redo only one level after finishing all the others in order to move on but the app keeps crashing :/
Designed to Take Your Money and Short Change You
by 27Buttercups on 2021/04/13 21:34
I play this game daily and I only get so far because I refuse to use real money to purchase gold or coins. This makes my winning progress slow. Even when you use prep kitchen recipes, the game is designed to short change you. You will spent time and money trying to get one start in order to and and to the next level. Beware!
My love of Cooking Dash
by tortlal tank on 2021/04/12 21:27
Cooking Dash is a wonderful game I have had this game since I bought my iPad and it is so much fun. However everything has their ups and downs. For this game I think that it needs daily rewards, not just earning it after you do something because that is kinda boring. And as a kid, it takes forever to earn gold. So knowing that this game is really fun, but also super cool, is awesome.

Awesome game!!
Always “downloading”
by tvmo6 on 2021/04/07 02:56
This is a fun game. Unfortunately, when I want to play the game, it won’t always allow me to. It says it’s downloading something.
AMAZING
by Rosa Liliana Castellanos on 2021/04/06 01:43
I’ve played game on my laptop, yearsss ago. I got a little emotional when I found out there is an app version ❤️

Great game
Game restarted from beginning
by hftxrsreygb on 2021/03/29 01:29
I’ve been playing this game for over three years and yesterday it started me over from the very beginning. I’m not sure why it happened but I am upset because I had over $600,000 in coins, multiple restaurants open, and lots of gold saved up. I’m hoping it’s just a glitch and will fix itself soon.
Deleted my progress
by Trose0430 on 2021/03/28 01:25
I just finished the first steak season or whatever it’s called and it wouldn’t let take off the fries from the fryer and they burnt so I wanted to chopped potatoes but it wouldn’t let me set the potatoes down on the chopping board and my customer left. Then after closing the app and restarting it reopened the story line to the second steak season with the fries but all my progress was gone and I didn’t have a chopping block or fryer or anything else but steak and a potato that I couldn’t even chop!!
Love this game
by sniff_ch on 2021/03/24 18:55
I absolutely love this game. The events are really fun. I took off one star because of the glitches the game seems to get every couple of days where It crashes right after you finish your game but before you are awarded any stars. This has been happening for months. It’s also really difficult to get enough gold to actually play the game.
MUST FIX
by hdjqixi on 2021/03/23 02:32
After You Pass The 3 Season Just Get You Started From The Top Again Like New Game
Love but need new restaurants
by Bethie76 on 2021/03/22 02:25
I haven’t played in at least three months because it’s been soooooo long since a new restaurant was introduced. Come to find out, three months later, still no new restaurant. I’m honestly getting close to deleting it as it takes a ton of my memory.

Glitches and no progress saved during 12+ hours a day
by Hapababe on 2021/03/14 23:24
Love the game, been playing it for years, but there is a glitch that has not been fixed for months. If you play during certain times of the day, your progress will not be saved. I have reached out to customer support, but the issue has still not been fixed. Super frustrating...a shame
Too many bugs-Not worth playing anymore
by pay to no on 2021/03/13 01:59
I have played this game for years and I loved it. Over the last six month it has developed so many bugs that it is no longer fun. I have contacted customer service on numerous occasions and all I get is a message stating they are aware of the problem and trying to fix it.
Next level won’t open
by StrangeGummyBear on 2021/03/12 14:25
I got Cat Lady Crepes and finished season 1 but season 2 is not opening.
Unfair
by MQVera on 2021/03/12 14:06
I will start a new level and of course it take 10 grocery bags to start. I start my level and out of nowhere it restarts and it takes 10 more grocery bags. Less time I get to play the levels. This is unfair and makes me not want the game anymore. They should really make it where you play a level you if you pass you keep your 10 to more on to next level. If you fail then they take the 10 grocery bags.
Same Issue As Most
by GreenIydMonsta on 2021/03/11 21:36
I’ve contacted support several times regarding an issue with a bug causing level progress to not save. It’s particularly frustrating during the special events when playing is pointless because you can’t collect coins or stars. It’s happened 3x in the past month. I play this game often to de-stress at the end of the day and I really enjoy it. Hoping this will be fixed.

by Bufalow Beal on 2021/03/11 01:34
They’ll fix something and then it’s back in a couple of days. Plus they’ve started playing advertisements that are just gross.
Why play if the data is not saved
by vonrunner on 2021/03/10 16:26
I have loved this game, played it for a few years, spent more money on it than I care to admit, but have to give it a poor review because for months now, the game is not saving progress consistently. I can spend expensive VIPs, get a perfect score and does not save that information! Daily goals to win gold are impossible to get when the game does not record coins earned consistently. It seems to work off and on, for a few hours or minutes, then no progress is saved. I wrote to customer support and at first they responded and refunded VIPs and some gold, assuring me that their developers were on it. But weeks went by, same issues, same reports back, not fixed. Now I only get an automated response to my reports of having lost gold, VIPs and time without the game saving. I would advise finding another game.
Issues
by Momma Cadenas on 2021/03/10 12:10
This game is a lot of fun. HOWEVER, it is be try frustrating when you play levels and beat them with five stars and it won’t save so it shows you only have 1 or 2. It’s also very frustrating that the levels I get 5 stars on stopped giving any rewards. It just goes out of that level as if completed fully and then when you go to get into a different level your stars you just got aren’t there nor did you collect the gold or coins from beating it. If this issue ever gets fixed I would give it 5 stars.
Very fun, but something still needs fixing
by annadecember100 on 2021/03/09 21:58
I love this game. It is so fun, but there is an issue with it at level 10 in Taco Train. I have played that level several times and have gotten 3-4 stars when serving every customer each time, but when I go back in to play the next level it says I’m still at level 10 even though I’ve passed it several times. Please fix this as I am very annoyed. Thanks.
Glitches Galore
by Whit R on 2021/03/09 20:39
Game isn’t even playable anymore because of all the glitches. Seems like everyone is having this problem, so why isn’t anything being done about it? Super fun when it used to work :(
Awesome
by Raheem27 on 2021/03/09 16:34
I just think it’s funny how the the creators of this game causes the black woman to get angry faster then everyone else. Looks like micro racism to me. It’s just funny because no one on the face of planet earth has killed, destroyed, and raped more than Caucasian’s. That’s a LITERAL fact, 200 million blacks, 100 million native Americans, 80 million Hispanics all slaughtered, literally slaughtered and that’s only talking about America’s establishment, not to mention Rome, Greece, Alexander the Great, Joseph Stalin, Hitler and many many others. I just think it’s funny how the worlds best murder gets to shift blame and make it seem as if the poor are the aggressors. But then again their blessing was the sword, and by the sword they lived.
OMG
by sarina🐞🐝ladybug fan on 2021/03/08 09:42
So I had this on my phone and I just really enjoyed it! Everything about this game is awesome so many levels so many stuff that makes my day all of the things in the game makes my day better I love cooking apps and this is one of the best ones! I didn’t find any problems with this game except that it glitches sometimes and I have to get in the app again but Get this app if you haven’t cause it’s so good :D
Too many glitches
by yelhsallen on 2021/03/07 22:55
I used to LOVE this game. I used to play it all the time when I was 19. I decided to redownload it and play but oh my god the glitches. I went to replay level 8 on the steak restaurant to serve all the customers and every time I play, it charges me the 10 groceries or whatever to play, but then the app closes out. I’m stuck on level 14 in the tofu restaurant now. Every time I beat the level the game closes out so it never lets me get past it. I don’t getting so frustrated I’m about to just delete the game.
This game is broken
by Cas-Love222 on 2021/03/07 20:57
This game is broken, the levels crash, your progress isn’t saved . There isn’t much purpose in playing when you can’t progress in the game . Customer service says they are aware of the issue but have no idea when the problem will be fixed . Seems strange .
Bug
by EllMT0 on 2021/03/07 08:02
Giving two stars because I used to love this game, but lately has been a one star experience. As everyone else has mentioned, there’s a bug that they are not fixing. Super annoying, and at the very least if you can’t fix the bug then do free play or give a warning for the issue! Some people have mentioned a fix where you don’t watch your gold videos, this works for me too. But it doesn’t seem like they care about making this game playable.
Messing up
by tiredofthedownloads on 2021/03/06 11:29
I’ve enjoyed this game for a long time but now it won’t accumulate points I’ve earned. I have to remove it and download to my iPad often. 😡
Long term issues
by Jay Hawke on 2021/03/06 03:28
I love this game. There are achievements to be had. You can do it without spending money. It’s entertaining and fun. But, there has now been an issue with it for months. Completions aren’t saving with levels or events, and sometimes that even means new levels don’t open. It’s so frustrating, and support has said they’re working on it but not a single update has come. I get to points quicker and quicker of just shutting down from it. I don’t know what happened but this is so disappointing.
Known bugs - no golds or coins or status collected after completing
by CuttleBoogie on 2021/03/06 00:44
Sent multiple reports on the issue The answer is they knew about the problem but provide no solution to this. The outcomes you will loose golden saucers, recipe preps, vip and golds.
Really fun game...when it works!!!
by LEG696 on 2021/03/05 23:53
I’ve played this game for years and beat every level and it used to be awesome! But now it’s broken more than it works!!!! Almost EVERY day there is an issue with it. The game freezes up. The videos crash the app. The points don’t accumulate. The levels don’t progress. Etc. Etc. Etc. FIX YOUR GAME!!!!
Crashes
by Ashlynn Hardy on 2021/03/05 15:47
Every time I try to play episode 8 of table steaks it crashes so I have no way of beating the game. Plz fix this.
Not getting rewards after level.
by Brandee Wible on 2021/03/05 10:46
Please fix. When I complete a level It doesn’t give me my rewards most of the time. Over and over. I use my recipes that take hours for vip tickets and I don’t get those either. I should have about 10. Gold is nonexistent. As soon as the time is up in the level it goes back to main screen. Everything is updated. Please fix.
Crash
by H2o_junky on 2021/03/05 04:48
I love this game but over the past several months it’s been crashing even with the latest app and phone update. You’re required to have gold to upgrade venues, VIPs to help earn extras, and VIP tickets to beat special levels. The game has not been saving any progress in the venues when beating levels; and in turn you lose anything used to help beat the venues. Not to mention playing Trail of Style or Series Finale is futile since you can beat levels but when the time is up it’s as if nothing happened but gold and VIP tickets get depleted if used. Gotta fix the glitch already.
Game doesn’t work
by AndypantsMcD on 2021/03/04 14:40
I pass levels and I don’t get credit for it. It looks like I never played the level; therefore, I am at a standstill but it still takes my gold and grocery points. It is frustrating because I’ll use my VIP players for a level and pass it and then I use up my VIP player and don’t move forward in the game. Then I’ll come back to it a day or 2 later and it will work for a little while. Then something happens and it goes back to not moving me forward. I have emailed the help desk several times and asked them when will they fix the issue.
Progress doesn’t save
by Nickifiable on 2021/03/03 17:32
This game, while it is fun, comes with quite a few bugs. Time and time again I have played episodes to find that after I 5-star an episode the progress doesn’t save and I will have lost any power-ups/gold that I had used on the episode. The support is aware of the issue however doesn’t seem to care about fixing it as this has been an ongoing issue for at least 3 months. Don’t spend money that you care about unless you’re willing to risk your progress not saving.
Crashes constantly
by Box 23 on 2021/03/03 16:38
This is the most glitchy version of an already glitchy game. Crashes constantly. Doesn’t track points or give bonuses half the time. But l, it is fun to play.
Something wrong with this game
by Ab..aziz on 2021/03/03 13:57
It’s dose not save any progress a had ... !!!!
Crash central
by thedepressedone on 2021/03/03 08:55
Keeps crashing after I’ve finished a level, I don’t get any money/points/ rewards from the game I just played and passed it’s not fair I can’t bet the levels like this :/
Constant issues
by One More Nasty Woman on 2021/03/03 00:36
This game has had an ongoing gameplay issue for MONTHS. The game intermittently doesn’t credit items won or status changes during a level. Every once in a while it will start working properly for a few hours and then it goes right back to nothing. I’ve reached out to support multiple times. They literally have nothing to say except they’re working on it and, they don’t say it this way but, essentially they’ll get it fixed when they get it fixed and too bad so sad. I understand games have issues but your glitches have been ruining gameplay for months and nothing has been done. This is disappointing. Pretty soon I’ll just have to uninstall.
Too many glitchy kitchens.....
by Erocka22 on 2021/03/02 22:28
.....that don’t register level up. At least remove them from play + challenges....
Tips to play
by ㅇ가다아찿 on 2021/03/02 22:13
Mine doesn't crash in airplane mode. Also, do not wash free gold video until later then you should be fine
Fix this game...
by Scotmom22 on 2021/03/01 22:49
...or admit you have no plans to do so. It has been broken for months now. It is not worth playing if progress can’t be made.
The game needs to be fixed
by Boboddy69 on 2021/03/01 20:19
First I got all the way to the middle of season 2 and it restarted my game, which wasn’t that big of a deal. Until I got to the VIP final 5 or 10 levels after season 3, it makes me keep replaying the first level, taking all the tickets I had for it, and says I’ve passed it already but as soon as I beat the first level it goes to the map automatically and doesn’t give an option for level 2. Highly disappointing.
Found a (semi) patch for the bug.
by MMK16 on 2021/03/01 11:24
Hello everyone. I’ve been experiencing this extremely annoying bug since the December 2020 update as well. After doing further research, I found a fix: DO NOT watch your eight free gold videos until after you finish your daily tasks or any other levels you want credit for. Personally, my videos refresh at 4pm PST everyday. I make sure to have my tasks finished and keep playing as much as I want. All the levels work great! Around 3pm, I watch my videos and receive eight free gold, then the glitch starts again until my videos refresh at 4pm again. Hope this helps! This method is working for me so far and I’m so happy to play this game and advance again. I’d give a five star if the bug was fixed, however I have waisted recipes, VIP tickets, and even saucers before I discovered the patch. P.S. - I do NOT know if this method will grant you credit in Trial of Styles levels, as I haven’t been playing those lately, but all my regular restaurant levels seem to be working great as long as I put off watching my free gold videos.
Too Glitchy
by smashinghogwash on 2021/03/01 01:37
There is a persistent problem with progress not saving. There’s only about an hour a day that you can actually earn rewards and make progress on levels. The rest of the day you’ll pass a level and then be brought to the Home Screen. When you go back to the level you were playing it will say you haven’t passed it yet. It’s like gaslighting the game. At first I thought it was just a one time thing, but this has been happening for about two months now and it’s only getting worse. My theory is this was done on purpose so that you’ll spend more money to make sure you pass your level when the game is actually working. If you don’t, who knows how long you’ll have to wait for the game to start working again. Don’t bother downloading. It’s too frustrating!
Unplayable
by Paurri on 2021/02/28 02:27
I, like everyone else it seems like, have been experiencing the glitch where the game crashes at the end of the level before you collect your prizes. It’s taken away the reward system of the game and made it completely unplayable. The fact that hundreds of us have complained about this and they have done nothing is mind boggling. What is the point of playing a game without rewards?
Fix your bugs!
by ktnoll12 on 2021/02/27 14:46
I’ve been playing this game for years. Would have given it 5 stars, but 3 months ago, a bug started that makes the game unplayable. Levels do not count as completed. Customer service is beyond useless, saying they’re working on it and it will get fixed - It’s been 3 months and I can’t play this game that was once great.
So many bugs!
by booovdhejjdjkd on 2021/02/27 04:58
Fix ur game, back to main page after playing trail of style and have no record, waste my vip ticket. And NOT giving free prize wheel spin everyday, etc. so many bugs!
Needs an update
by justfee1983 on 2021/02/26 23:36
I’m so frustrated I like the game but I really think it needs an update I play the game a s when I get my stars and then boom the game send me right back to the same game I just beat it makes me repeat it like 10 times before it decides to let me pass the game and you need 10 groceries to play a game so I use all my groceries on the same level over and over again 😡😡😡
Love this Game but needs to be Upgraded
by Annabreeannaaa on 2021/02/26 22:09
PLEASE UPDATE THESE CRASHES !!!!
Game won’t save progress hasn’t been updated in two months
by Crstnam on 2021/02/26 22:02
If you’re not going to fix the game, just remove it from the App Store and be done with it
So many glitches
by dinoemmie on 2021/02/26 14:25
Listen, I love this game cause it’s fun and helps me waste some time. But for the past three months or so, there’s been a glitch so my game doesn’t save and I lose supplies, recipes, money, etc. It also means I can’t compete in the Trial of Style episodes so I lose golden saucers. I’ve tried contacting customer support but they keep saying it’s an ongoing issue they’re trying to solve and sometimes they refund me the recipes, golden saucers I lose or give me gold, but it’s getting so frustrating that I’m about to just delete the app.
Used to be a Great game but doesn’t work for many weeks
by ajack17 on 2021/02/26 10:16
This game has not worked since Dec 2020 and they still haven’t fixed it despite repeatedly saying they are working on it as fast as they can. The game will not record scores or achievements reliably. Don’t waste your money on this game until it’s fixed, but don’t hold your breath either. They don’t seem to be working on it despite claims to the contrary.
Fun, but Game Breaking Gitch
by BallBrigade on 2021/02/25 21:47
Let me tell you. When this game works, it’s a lot of fun. It’s easy to learn, and difficult but fun to master. However, there is currently a pretty big glitch. For most of the hours in a day, when you go to play a level and finish it, the game sends you back to the main menu without showing progress you’ve made, and at the same time taking away items, boosts, and groceries (in game currency) you spent to play that level. This also affects the ways you can get the free gold watching videos, as it constantly says there are none available. I say most hours in a day cause there’s usually a small window where this bug doesn’t happen and you can play and earn no problem. Until that’s fixed, this game is a hard pass. If they ever do find a permanent fix, then definitely pick this up.
Disappointing

I have been playing this game since 2012. I have spent a lot of money in this game trying to get far as I did. After switching from a phones i noticed that all of my progress had been deleted. I had to start over from the first beginning, which is very disappointing. I have been trying to get help with this is issue, but I haven’t been helped yet. I also dislike fyber. I completed this Hulu credit reward the day before Christmas Eve to receive over 600 gold, but I never received it. I sent them all the screenshots they needed, but they keep sending me in circles. It cost me 11.99 to join Hulu, and they didn’t even give me the reward like promised. I really enjoy playing the game, but I think I’m about ready to let it go. The game has really gotten even worse. I play and get no coins or stars it keeps making me repeat levels and taking my boosts and golds.
Boooooooo

Can’t get the next level because the season finale. Making me not want to play it no more. Money hungry
My game points are counted after each game!

Please fix it.

Guys I was just playing this game and it said that a tracking device is on.. help!!
No longer works
by MommieLovesGames on 2021/02/22 23:25
I’ve been playing for years. Last few months it is glitching and doesn’t register you beat a level. I’ve contacted support multiple times, they say this will be ongoing. Really disappointed. I really liked this game. Only one of two games I play.
Used to be great
by BellaPriya on 2021/02/22 21:07
I used to love this game and I was so excited to recently get back into it. However the design has become so busy and confusing, and it’s impossible to do well without spending money. It’s also been glitching so even though I’m watching ads to earn extra plays (it only lets you play so many games per day which I don’t understand... like don’t you want me to play your game?) I’m not getting the rewards. It also glitches after I played various levels so I wasted my daily plays and didn’t get any coins afterward. I don’t understand the changes and it’s very sad because this game used to be great.
I like Flo
by Sherryriley on 2021/02/22 18:51
Good game. I’m a little confused as I’m new to the game. So far has a lot to offer just not sure how to get into all of it. Will do a better review once I’m proficient
Frustrating to say the least
by SinClair3oo on 2021/02/22 02:52
Do NOT download this game. I have been playing this for years and it was great, but they now have a glitch that makes the game unplayable. Customer service is sh*t cause you have to literally beg to take back what the game ate up due to their error. This has a glitch that’s been going on for at least 3 months now and when contacted they say the same nonsense. This won’t be fixed anytime soon if at all. Seriously don’t get this, and be weary of this developer.
Needs an update and better customer support
by LAW_1212 on 2021/02/21 19:33
I’ve been playing this game for years and never had a problem. This last update I’ve beat boards and wasn’t given credit for the win. I’ve had items disappear and when I told customer service the response was free gold and that it won’t change until there’s an update. How does this help? It doesn’t. I’ve put money into this game so I feel I have a right to be upset.
Tech issues with no support
by jaded531 on 2021/02/21 01:21
I’ve been having trouble progressing in the game for about 2 months now. No progress will save. I’ve contacted customer service 4 times now. At first, their reps were acknowledging that other people have been having the same problem. Now, they’re telling me that it must be my device (I’ve been playing the game on my iPad for two years now with no issues in any other game; the problem isn’t my device). The customer service is sorely lacking, and unfortunately, the game is useless since I cannot make any progress in it. Please do not spend any money in this game, because if you have the same problem as me, anything you buy in the game will have less than no value.
Glitches need fixed
by 124464312357890 on 2021/02/20 22:13
I love this game but every day there is a glitch that causes it to not give you the points or stars for levels when completing so you can’t move on to the next level. It last for hours sometimes and happens multiple times a day. If it weren’t for the glitches I would give it 4 stars. 5 if you didn’t have to use so much gold to buy upgrade anything.

by lomkim on 2021/02/20 18:19
I love this game a lot but I hate that I play the same level over and over and it will say I didn’t play the level at all so i get stuck on the same level !!! Fix please
Game has not worked since December
by Teacher197 on 2021/02/20 14:59
I have played, and loved, this game for years. However, since December the game will not let you progress through levels. You complete a level and it just makes you constantly re-repeat it. I have contacted customer service multiple times. They just say they know it’s an issue and please be patient. Well, it’s been three months. I have about given up on them ever fixing this bug.
Worst App Ever
by elorapalmer on 2021/02/20 01:22
Had 8 restaurants completed and then I updated the app and it completely wiped my progress! 🤗 they also never answered my customer support message to see if they could get my game back. Sorry I ever spent money on this app, definitely won’t make that mistake again
Disappointed
by KeylaVar on 2021/02/19 21:46
I downloaded this game and enjoy the game tonight. After completing season three, the app asked me to link my account to either Apple, Facebook, or Google. Which I did. Once the account was linked I lost all my coins, call bars, as well as my season play. After contacting customer support, I was instructed to uninstall the game and reinstall the game which was completed four times. Once I got to season three I was unable to pass level six after four attempts. It was fun while it lasted although it was short. Uninstalled
Trouble moving to next level...glitch?
by hdudhdhgy on 2021/02/19 20:54
I really like this game I’m playing it for a long time but recently I have been having trouble not only in the trailer style but they happens more there than other levels . I have beaten a level on trial style numerous times with flying colors and it’s not registering to the game and letting me move onto the next level.Before it continues with the stars after you beat a level it just goes right to the main page or it goes to something else in the game like, daily goals.
Takes your money
by Kikipatt5 on 2021/02/19 13:56
I like the game but as many say it is expensive. If you do buy more gold like I do they end up not saving your progress when you get 5 stars to unlock other trophies. Last 2 games I played with VIP it’s cuts off at the end. I have complained to customer service and the will give you 15 coins or your VIP back but to many problems for me. I don’t want to have to send Customer service a note very time I play. Deleting today.
Frustrated
by Jules Osborn on 2021/02/19 03:50
Last update was 2 months ago and it created serious bugs in gameplay. I am unable to complete levels. Been in contact with customer service and all they tell me is that they are working on it. Used to be a daily player, will never spend money in the app again.
Trash
by kailucille on 2021/02/18 22:41
This game is trash. I played it and it glitches and does not Work so often. I am over it. ahhhhhh
FIX IT- New update not working - two months!!!
by Smc50322 on 2021/02/18 06:27
Levels are not showing as being completed. Cannot progress. Please fix.
use to be great
by Jtriscuit on 2021/02/18 02:28
this game was my favorite but now i don’t get rewards for completing levels or my vip tickets that are dropped. Also i have to redownload all my restaurants every time I play. Just awful now.
Doesn’t work anymore — don’t spend any $$
by Cathrob on 2021/02/17 18:55
I’ve been totally addicted to this game — love all the little characters and foods :-) but 1) it is DESIGNED to rip you off big time and 2) they’ve now abandoned it (as of Winter 20-21). It’s a total mess now and you never know when it will work and when it won’t — at least half the time you play and advance but the game doesn’t record it. Don’t invest your time. I’ve held off writing this but after many weeks of losing time and effort I’ge given up — they keep saying they don’t know when they can fix it. So don’t start!!
Game Not The Same
by MMG💘 on 2021/02/17 03:28
We need an update. The game isn’t performing good. So many things going wrong. Y’all need to do an update and fix these glitches.
What the actual F***
by Runningskunk53 on 2021/02/16 23:44
What the actual F*** I was playing the game I was on season 2 of the first restaurant and the unfair thing is you guys for some reason made my game start back over from season 1 episode 1 if your game keeps doin this I’m not gonna play this game
Lagging
by paper.io12445 on 2021/02/16 16:33
Love the game 100%! But every time I log my facebook in to link with this device it messes up! It says no internet connection and the game will just freeze up at random times. No matter how many times I restart this game, it still gets stuck in the same spot every time. Disappointed.
Hasn’t worked leveling up in 2 months
by GAMom3 on 2021/02/15 20:39
Game hasn’t worked to let me make progress in 2 months. I email then and they reply with “how sorry” they are and “how upsetting “ that must be. But never a solution or fix. I’ve been playing this game for several years and am so frustrated that they can’t fix a MAJOR issue. Why would someone play a game they can’t gain levels or proceed forward in? Very disappointing. I used to love this game.
New update caused a lot of problems
by Luckyswifey16 on 2021/02/15 18:39
It doesn’t register that I completed any new levels. Please fix ASAP About toUninstall still can’t play every time I beat a level it closes the game and don’t register please fix it
Glitch
by Christ 168 on 2021/02/15 16:18
Experiencing a glitch. The game takes my boosts and energy and never registers my progress. Please fix this glitch. It’s very annoying. The game is unplayable right now.
Game is complete trash! Uninstalling
by Candis2009 on 2021/02/15 16:03
This most recent update has PROBLEMS! I’ve played an episode many times and not gotten the stars for it. I’ve also watched ads for pieces of gold and not received them. After I play an episode it’ll take me to main screen to select a venue and not back to the episode and/or venue I was previously playing.
Need to put money in to progress
by Flashy person on 2021/02/15 02:37
A game is never free now a days. You need certain amount of coins to buy this and that in order to complete a level. Sure you’ll be able to play the first season but not the rest because you need to pay for coins and gold
They are slowly stealing progress from longtime players
by Choc Roni on 2021/02/14 23:27
I have sent them multiple messages regarding how items I have PURCHASED have been lost over the past few weeks. Initially they credited me for them, but today they said they can’t promise the issue will be fixed, and didn’t even reimburse me what was lost. The developer suggested I not participate in the Trial of Style. I did as they asked, then got penalized for not playing, as my saucers were stripped away. All that said, I have decided to delete the game. This is ridiculous.
Glitch won’t let you advance/ no fix
by Bronzino on 2021/02/14 18:43
I play this game a lot, but I guess I won’t be very much anymore. There is a glitch that will not let you advance in the Trial of Style. You will be able to spend groceries and VIP tickets; you will beat the level; it will not let you advance; and those groceries and tickets are wasted. You do not get them back. It also won’t let you accumulate gold and groceries in the special events. I’ve contacted customer care twice and they said they are aware and have no idea when it will be fixed. I don’t understand how they can’t get it fixed. It’s been an ongoing problem for several weeks. Maybe they are phasing the game out and aren’t fixing things anymore.
Fix the game please
by Jrhgirl on 2021/02/14 18:23
I’ve been playing this for 2 years now. Originally gave 5 stars but lower to two because for over 4 months now their have been glitches. It isn’t saving your progress. The latest update didn’t fix it either. Fix the game please
Love/Hate
by May be a runner? on 2021/02/14 18:01
This game is a lot of fun and there are many levels you can play. However, if you aren’t willing to invest real money into it, you get stuck and can’t beat levels or move forward. They balance this out by having special events and rewards, but more than half the time the game stops working during these periods. Even if you beat a level, it doesn’t save the progress. I think this is done intentionally to ensure you pay to play.
Disappointed
by shushshakanwajisd on 2021/02/13 18:19
I loved this game but it’s very glitchy sometime if I completed a level it’ll never say I did
Glitches
by Lost_Adventurer on 2021/02/13 14:16
I loved this game so much but the glitches are terrible. If I beat a level or increase my stars, it doesn’t recognize it. It glitches close the level and takes my energy, tickets or VIPs. This game is so much fun but I can’t keep playing if it won’t let me progress. Please fix the glitches, I love this game!
By a true gamer
by slowgame79 on 2020/09/06 21:22
I honestly love this game. I have been playing for over five years now and they do have glitches but sometimes they work them out haha and they still working progress and that means they love the energy and the time and work that they put into it to . I my self have put thousands in these games I’ve played that’s how much I love the game but I found a way not to spend so much anymore lol just being patient with thier glitches and I know it gets frustrating trust me, I play for hrs and lose sleep over this game and I’m constantly talking to them about the issues. Because just like my son we stuck inside all the time because of this virus and this playing games online is what we do to past time and get things off our minds so we don’t go crazy lol. Well I think most of you gamers understand so if we stay on their butts about issues maybe they will keep working out the glitches and make us even happier. But I do thank them and I will for sure keep playing because yes also it’s An addicting game as many more other games lol so that’s all I have to say for now thank you for your time and keep pushing for them to fix the glitches say hell to the yay yay lol good luck friends and be safe
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's A LOT you can unlock and do, it'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'm not getting many coins either. So no matter what I do, even using gold to buy things to help, I'm getting nowhere. I purchased the vegan restaurant next, even WITH upgrade, VIPs, serving all customers quick and efficiently I'm only able to get 2-3 stars per episode. Why is that? I feel like the work I'm putting into each level is monumental compared to the rewards. I'd spend real money on this game if I felt like it would actually help but to be honest, I don't think it will. And lastly, I've only been playing this game for about a week, maybe not even that long, at first I didn't notice many ads. Now all of a sudden there are video ads that pop up frequently and oftentimes crash the game.
No reward for watching videos
by ATMM16 on 2017/12/05 07:42
Another update: The problems I stated below still haven't been fixed and yet there'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't crash, but there's just this small glitch that forces back out of the level I'm playing, I don't know if it'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'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.
Expensive and time consuming
by Bwilli34 on 2017/12/17 13:05
This game is fun to play but they'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't WASTE YOUR TIME PEOPLE! I will be deleting this game as soon as I hit send!
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't mind doing from time to time if I didn'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'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'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's getting pretty disrespectful.
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!!
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've fallen in love with it, however the Gold wall where u go to get free food by completing different task doesn't always work and sometimes I'll break my neck to do a task waiting for hours to get my reward and a lot of time i don't. Also now the Gold wall to get coins isn't working it'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'll stop playing all together and delete the app you guys seem to take the fun out of it I don't want to spend real money on a game when the coins go so quickly please make it a bit easier or I'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
Found a (semi) patch for the bug.
by MMK16 on 2021/03/01 11:24
Hello everyone. I’ve been experiencing this extremely annoying bug since the December 2020 update as well. After doing further research, I found a fix: DO NOT watch your eight free gold videos until after you finish your daily tasks or any other levels you want credit for. Personally, my videos refresh at 4pm PST everyday. I make sure to have my tasks finished and keep playing as much as I want. All the levels work great! Around 3pm, I watch my videos and receive eight free gold, then the glitch starts again until my videos refresh at 4pm again. Hope this helps! This method is working for me so far and I’m so happy to play this game and advance again. I’d give a five star if the bug was fixed, however I have waisted recipes, VIP tickets, and even saucers before I discovered the patch. P.S. - I do NOT know if this method will grant you credit in Trial of Styles levels, as I haven’t been playing those lately, but all my regular restaurant levels seem to be working great as long as I put off watching my free gold videos.
I’m not even a gamer
by byebye1214 on 2021/01/04 13:33
But this was a game I would love to play and I did not mind spending money in it at all. It is expensive like people say but I would take my time with it. And my game unfortunately got uninstalled and I wasn’t aware for a while. So when I downloaded it back I’ve been trying to sync through facebook but it hasn’t been working.😩 So I contacted customer service. They basically told me to do the same thing I’ve already tried . I feel like they should have a better way to get people their game progress back cause people like me don’t mind spending the money on the game but I worked so hard and spent so much money already. They should have some way to troubleshoot people’s game progress back. It took me months to get where I was and a lot of money spending . I had 5 stars on every episode, auto chefs, and total food upgrade FOR EVERY SINGLE RESTAURANT I HAD OPEN. Not to mention it gets more expensive the farther you get . That took a lot of hard work and if they can’t find another way to get me my progress back I will no longer playing cause I’ve already had to start the game over twice I will not a third time .
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.
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! 🤬🤬🤬
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.
Painful
by E|i on 2020/08/31 03:44
This game is a lot of fun. Don’t get it. Seriously, I love playing, but the game’s main function requires groceries to play, and they are expensive to buy. What ends up happening is you have fun for 20 minutes, spend another 10 waiting for a few groceries, and then move on to something else because it’s not worth waiting any longer. There are probably over a thousand levels spread between the different restaurants, and it would take a year to complete them all with this problem, even if you played all day, every day. From what I understand, there’s no way to speed up how quickly the groceries come, or raise the maximum that you can have from waiting (50 may seem like a lot but that’s only 5 games). You can only pay gold to get some more, and it’s a lot to pay all the time. They should have a function that lets you use real money to permanent have infinite groceries, kind of like games that spam you with ads but you can pay to remove them. I think it would be worth the developers’ time and money.
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're going to pay if you want to enjoy the game to it's fullest..and of course, this is just wrong. I'm not sure why the developers ask for feedback and reviews when it's pretty obvious to the players that you aren't listening...once you get the all mighty Facebook "Like" you seem to think your work is done. Not even close. Here's an example..You give us a great new ice cream restaurant to run with a hoppin, groovin auto chef who doesn'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'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't all cake, there are a lot of brussel sprouts in there as well.
Individual Restaurants take forever to download
by fire_flies on 2020/12/11 04:59
I really love this game and would really love to give it 5 stars because I play this for hours on end almost everyday but I have come across one issue. Every time I join all the restaurants say “downloading” even ones I have not purchased yet. To download the content of trial of style the game has to download the content of each restaurant in the game, which there are a lot of. Not to mention the download speed is very long. There is also no background downloading so you have to be on the main map screen for the restaurants to even beginning downloading, you can’t play levels while waiting for it to download. This whole process takes 30+ minutes in my experience and makes it unenjoyable to play since I can almost never play trial of style unless I want to wait 30 minutes. I would also agree with those that say this game is money hungry. Gold is very hard to receive in this game and you should have more ways in getting gold instead of paying or watching videos.
Fun but ridiculous!
by bicha_unika on 2019/01/12 21:24
So let'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'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's the design of the game that sets you up to fail. I think if you're going to make a game it should make sense! For example why am I able to earn the stars & 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'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't be playing anymore since I now know it won'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.
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'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'd even supplement my habit by throwing money into the game for more gold (again, it's a great game). Now, if you're lucky when you watch a video you have a 50/50 chance of getting what they promised you'd received. I don'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'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'd sadly miss the abusive relationship but we'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's the only thing preventing me from getting a perfect score. Kiss my (expletive).
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!
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.
Got a few issues but otherwise is fun
by Pillowcase26 on 2020/07/01 19:42
Gameplay is smooth and this is a good and fun game overall, if a little pay to win. It’s kind of annoying to have to sink so much gold to max a venue, considering how many venues there are. I’ll make a list of select issues that aren’t too important but I feel the need to mention, in hopes they’ll be fixed or retooled. 1. Morsel Magnet has a delay, which makes it difficult to use. Maybe make Flo not able to move while she’s getting things, or have the animation of getting it but she already has it so she can use it instantly. Otherwise things go really bad. 2. Premonition is really ugly and clunky. They look like orders when they’re not and they confuse me, plus they get in the way of swipe collecting tips. Also the numbers are all over the place. Maybe move the bubbles to the left more so they don’t block tips and don’t look like current orders, and allow sauces and toppings to be added to dishes if they are premonitioned. 3. Give better uses for coins. An exponentially priced Deal Wheel isn’t good enough. Maybe bring back the surprise box? Heck, I’d even accept charging coins for VIP dishes but making gold have a higher chance to drop from them. 4. Maybe an undo button? Not to reverse something being cooked because you can’t do that realistically, but to uncheck something you accidentally clicked on. These are a few issues I had with the game. Otherwise the game is good.
Love this game but...
by hauntedintuition on 2020/08/28 00:37
I’ve been playing this game on my iPad for years and love it... but... a recurrent issue that I’ve been having is when attempting to watch videos for daily gold. I will watch a video for gold, and it will work... but then the next ad will freeze (which freezes the app) without playing. I will have to close the app, open it again, and try again for gold. Unfortunately, since the ad attempted to play (but failed), that opportunity for gold is lost... and since there are only 8 ads available for gold per day, I often am unable to claim all 8 free gold. This issue makes it very frustrating when attempting to play the game, because it takes longer to upgrade supplies/items for each “show”, which makes it difficult to progress in the game. My iPad is set to auto-update so it always is running at the most current iOS, so that isn’t the issue. Please fix!!!
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...
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!
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!
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.
Used to be Better
by mixiue on 2021/02/05 21:24
I have been playing this game for over 4 years! I remember waiting for each individual stage to come out and the right side of VIP Valhalla didn’t even exist, this was way back before the map expanded to what it is today. This game has always been difficult to advance in. You have to watch a lot of ads to earn gold. I’ve cleared 17 restaurants (half of them with max stars) and can honestly say it is practically impossible to do so without spending gold for restaurant upgrades. You can earn up to 11 gold per day watching ads but some stages require hundreds of gold to upgrade its equipment! For instance, Cutie Cakes needs at least 1000 gold (or $50) for full upgrades. Multiply that by 39 restaurants and this quickly becomes the most expensive app you’ll own. I don’t mind spending money on games, I work for a gaming company so I understand and I want to support this game’s developers. I love the art and mechanics of this game. However, the monetization in Cooking Dash is really bad. The upgrades are way too expensive. It drives people away rather than entices them to spend money. Also, it seems like this company has started to put its efforts into their new game Diner Dash Adventures and are no longer developing new restaurants for Cooking Dash. Now, Cooking Dash has tons of bugs. The game crashes sometimes and is unplayable. Reaching out to support doesn’t help. This is so disappointing considering all of the time and money I’ve put into this game.
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'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'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!
Fix the glitches and it will be fun again
by Merbear41 on 2021/01/10 14:31
I love this game because there are so many options for play. It helps me with my anxiety, just to focus on something small for a few minutes. I have been playing it for years, and love all the Diner Dash games. This one since the last bug fix has been glitchy - you will pass a level but then the game doesn’t unlock the next level. So you’re just stuck. I thought maybe it was just a certain restaurant, but it’s been happening in multiple restaurants. I even just bought a new one with 25 gold and could only play the first two episodes - even though I passed the second one the third remains locked. Without these bugs I would have given it 5 stars. I think 4 is even generous at this point since I’m not sure how much longer I’ll even be able to play it. Hopefully it gets fixed soon!
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!
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
Needs Improving !!
by Jzekhyria on 2018/01/03 07:32

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.
Fun game but too many flicked
by chickenpantz on 2021/02/06 19:26
I played this for years and loved it but stopped for a while as I got busy. I reinstalled on a new phone to start playing again. Problems everywhere. Too many options to get like pets, outfits, trial by style, etc it makes the game confusing. It used to be simpler. The worst part are the major bugs which make it hard to want to continue playing this game. To often it does not register my win and count up the stars and money and goes straight to the main screen. So basically I lost my groceries and prep recipes used to play that episode and lost all my winnings. Eventually it starts to work for a bit but then starts up again. They gave me a free 10 gold bars after I complained but that is not enough as I have lost way more. I refuse to pay for anything in the app for fear of losing it or my progress. No matter how much fun the game is I will eventually stop playing it unless the issues are fixed soon.
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
No Support for broken game
by Aklilah on 2021/01/24 13:41
I have played this game FOR YEARS. It is the only one I indulge in spending real money to play. It is so fun and customer service used to be great but now you get no support and the game is constantly broken. It used to be Customer Care would at least throw you a little bit of gold or if you missed an event because of a glitch they would give you the prize if you were on track to get it but now you get absolutely nothing and long waits for fixes (if they get fixed at all).The bugs make it near impossible to play. During the holidays, I missed basically all the events because multiple levels would not let me progress despite beating them. I got zero help from support when I wrote tickets and they refused to refund any of my purchased gold. It is clear that Glu is now just phoning it in since they are no longer updating the game and they don’t care about their customers or their game experience. Highly recommend playing a different game and spending your hard earned money elsewhere.
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't pay out, buying bundles that take 3 days to get credited to your account, and expensive to keep playing. Why can't they just make a new and improved version of Diner Dash without stealing cash? It'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'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.
Diner Dash
by LucJac2 on 2017/12/16 15:57
Addicting game but could've been better if there are more ways to earn the gold bars. Also, it'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'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't care about customers anymore but have become solely a profit-focused company.
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'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.
Too glitchy!
by Remsleebeau. on 2021/01/21 07:55
I have been playing this game for a very long time! I even started a new account to redo some of my progress. I thought it was my phone glitching because every time I played, it would skip to the front screen and I’d get no stars, money, nothing. So I just used up 10 groceries for it to not give me anything. I’ve won a ton of times and not been rewarded. I’ve even contacted the company and they were rude and said they already knew it was glitchy and they were working on it. It’s been happening A LOT and still not update and not working right. I play every other day so it actually works. Hope you guys fix it soon... and to people complaining about the gold, click on the gold and it’ll let you watch the ads up to 9 times I believe, as long as you don’t watch the other ads for groceries or the “people”. I do it everyday and get gold.
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....
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.
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.

Becoming a money pit ]
by DarkObsessed on 2021/04/16 15:22
I originally rated this game 5 stars, but I took off 2 stars because of how expensive this game has become. I’m either having to buy coins or gold in order to advance most times because new restaurants now cost lots of gold and coins, and you don’t make a ton of coins on the levels. Gold also takes a good while to obtain the free way, so most times you’re playing the same levels over and over to get enough coins to buy a new restaurant. The game used to be fun, but now I haven’t really touched it in months because of this.
Great game rubies by monetization
by lionkitty1111 on 2021/04/15 21:52
I have been playing the diner Dash series since it came out over a decade ago. This is the second worst diner Dash ever to come out. The game is basically unplayable because of the amount of content and the ridiculous cost of upgrades. During the gold rush event I earned about 70 gold. That is enough for maybe three or four upgrades. Each level requires dozens of upgrades that cost incrementally more. For example the first upgrade is five gold and the next is nine gold and then the next is 18 gold and then 30 gold.Multiply that by the three upgrade tabs (equip, food, restaurants) and the. Multiply that by 10 upgrades per tab. You’ll need between 400-1000 gold to beat ONE VENUE. There’s over a dozen and a half Venues. I have spent money on this game . I don’t mind paying. But $10 gets me 125 gold wow what a rip off. Too bad this game company ruined a perfectly good game
From very good to vey bad
by katrika on 2021/04/15 19:24
I finally uninstalled: game kept crashing and I lost lots of gold, vips and tickets. Kept contacting the customer service, eventually they would “refund”, but hey! why didn’t they fix the game?! I really don&#39;t get the point of many players: this game IS free, but if you are not good enough or impatient, you need to buy gold for real cash. Besides, game developers are real people who need to make a living, they&#39;re not in the NO PROFIT business... I have unlocked so far all but one of the restaurants, by getting 5 stars in most episodes (this unlocks the chest for each episode), winning trophies and, yes, watching a lot of videos. Lately there was also an offer to exchange 20.000 coins for a surprise box that contained gold and other goodies. This game wouldn&#39;t be as fun if it would be 100% free. My only critic is that the tasks in the Other Offers are never ending loops that get you nowhere. I have tried many of them and never got a sigle gold piece, so I just avoid them and go straight to the video offers. Perhaps the game administrators should look into that...
deleted everything
by kayla_051704 on 2021/04/15 07:07
i downloaded this game yesterday and i signed into my icloud to save my data in case i get a new phone i’d have my data saved . i go back into the game and all my data is gone it started me over from season 1 level 1 i lost all my money and all the upgrades i did on the game . i am very upset because i actually like the game a lot but i don’t want to start all the way over AGAIN 🤦🏽‍♀️.

Game decline
by CatchnZzzs on 2021/04/14 16:10
* ultimately deleted* Trial of Style no longer available for play. Game has become increasingly glitchy.
Love it but frustrated
by Lollypop5955 on 2021/04/14 04:06
I love this game but there are so many glitches and it’s so frustrating when you need to redo only one level after finishing all the others in order to move on but the app keeps crashing :/
Designed to Take Your Money and Short Change You
by 27Buttercups on 2021/04/13 21:34
I play this game daily and I only get so far because I refuse to use real money to purchase gold or coins. This makes my winning progress slow. Even when you use prep kitchen recipes, the game is designed to short change you. You will spent time and money trying to get one start in order to and and to the next level. Beware!
My love of Cooking Dash
by tortlal tank on 2021/04/12 21:27
Cooking Dash is a wonderful game I have had this game since I bought my iPad and it is so much fun. However everything has their ups and downs. For this game I think that it needs daily rewards, not just earning it after you do something because that is kinda boring. And as a kid, it takes forever to earn gold. So knowing that this game is really fun, but also super cool, is awesome.
Diner Dash

Awesome game!!
Always “downloading”
by tvmo6 on 2021/04/07 02:56
This is a fun game. Unfortunately, when I want to play the game, it won’t always allow me to. It says it’s downloading something.
AMAZING

I’ve played game on my laptop, yearsss ago. I got a little emotional when I found out there is an app version ❤️

Great game
Game restarted from beginning
by hftxrsreygb on 2021/03/29 01:29
I’ve been playing this game for over three years and yesterday it started me over from the very beginning. I’m not sure why it happened but I am upset because I had over $600,000 in coins, multiple restaurants open, and lots of gold saved up. I’m hoping it’s just a glitch and will fix itself soon.
Deleted my progress
by Trose0430 on 2021/03/28 01:25
I just finished the first steak season or whatever it’s called and it wouldn’t let take off the fries from the fryer and they burnt so I wanted to chopped potatoes but it wouldn’t let me set the potatoes down on the chopping board and my customer left. Then after closing the app and restarting it reopened the story line to the second steak season with the fries but all my progress was gone and I didn’t have a chopping block or fryer or anything else but steak and a potato that I couldn’t even chop!!
Love this game
by sniff_ch on 2021/03/24 18:55
I absolutely love this game. The events are really fun. I took off one star because of the glitches the game seems to get every couple of days where It crashes right after you finish your game but before you are awarded any stars. This has been happening for months. It’s also really difficult to get enough gold to actually play the game.
MUST FIX
by hdjqixi on 2021/03/23 02:32
After You Pass The 3 Season Just Get You Started From The Top Again Like New Game
Love but need new restaurants
by Bethie76 on 2021/03/22 02:25
I haven’t played in at least three months because it’s been soooooo long since a new restaurant was introduced. Come to find out, three months later, still no new restaurant. I’m honestly getting close to deleting it as it takes a ton of my memory.

Glitches and no progress saved during 12+ hours a day
by Hapababe on 2021/03/14 23:24
Love the game, been playing it for years, but there is a glitch that has not been fixed for months. If you play during certain times of the day, your progress will not be saved. I have reached out to customer support, but the issue has still not been fixed. Super frustrating...a shame
Too many bugs-Not worth playing anymore
by pay to no on 2021/03/13 01:59
I have played this game for years and I loved it. Over the last six month it has developed so many bugs that it is no longer fun. I have contacted customer service on numerous occasions and all I get is a message stating they are aware of the problem and trying to fix it.
Next level won’t open
by StrangeGummyBear on 2021/03/12 14:25
I got Cat Lady Crepes and finished season 1 but season 2 is not opening.
Unfair
by MQVera on 2021/03/12 14:06
I will start a new level and of course it take 10 grocery bags to start. I start my level and out of nowhere it restarts and it takes 10 more grocery bags. Less time I get to play the levels. This is unfair and makes me not want the game anymore. They should really make it where you play a level you if you pass you keep your 10 to more on to next level. If you fail then they take the 10 grocery bags.
Same Issue As Most
by GreenIydMonsta on 2021/03/11 21:36
I’ve contacted support several times regarding an issue with a bug causing level progress to not save. It’s particularly frustrating during the special events when playing is pointless because you can’t collect coins or stars. It’s happened 3x in the past month. I play this game often to de-stress at the end of the day and I really enjoy it. Hoping this will be fixed.

by Bufalow Beal on 2021/03/11 01:34
They’ll fix something and then it’s back in a couple of days. Plus they’ve started playing advertisements that are just gross.
Why play if the data is not saved
by vonrunner on 2021/03/10 16:26
I have loved this game, played it for a few years, spent more money on it than I care to admit, but have to give it a poor review because for months now, the game is not saving progress consistently. I can spend expensive VIPs, get a perfect score and does not save that information! Daily goals to win gold are impossible to get when the game does not record coins earned consistently. It seems to work off and on, for a few hours or minutes, then no progress is saved. I wrote to customer support and at first they responded and refunded VIPs and some gold, assuring me that their developers were on it. But weeks went by, same issues, same reports back, not fixed. Now I only get an automated response to my reports of having lost gold, VIPs and time without the game saving. I would advise finding another game.
Issues
by Momma Cadenas on 2021/03/10 12:10
This game is a lot of fun. HOWEVER, it is be try frustrating when you play levels and beat them with five stars and it won’t save so it shows you only have 1 or 2. It’s also very frustrating that the levels I get 5 stars on stopped giving any rewards. It just goes out of that level as if completed fully and then when you go to get into a different level your stars you just got aren’t there nor did you collect the gold or coins from beating it. If this issue ever gets fixed I would give it 5 stars.
Very fun, but something still needs fixing
by annadecember100 on 2021/03/09 21:58
I love this game. It is so fun, but there is an issue with it at level 10 in Taco Train. I have played that level several times and have gotten 3-4 stars when serving every customer each time, but when I go back in to play the next level it says I’m still at level 10 even though I’ve passed it several times. Please fix this as I am very annoyed. Thanks.
Glitches Galore
by Whit R on 2021/03/09 20:39
Game isn’t even playable anymore because of all the glitches. Seems like everyone is having this problem, so why isn’t anything being done about it? Super fun when it used to work :(
Awesome
by Raheem27 on 2021/03/09 16:34
I just think it’s funny how the the creators of this game causes the black woman to get angry faster then everyone else. Looks like micro racism to me. It’s just funny because no one on the face of planet earth has killed, destroyed, and raped more than Caucasian’s. That’s a LITERAL fact, 200 million blacks, 100 million native Americans, 80 million Hispanics all slaughtered, literally slaughtered and that’s only talking about America’s establishment, not to mention Rome, Greece, Alexander the Great, Joseph Stalin, Hitler and many many others. I just think it’s funny how the worlds best murder gets to shift blame and make it seem as if the poor are the aggressors. But then again their blessing was the sword, and by the sword they lived.
OMG
by sarina🐞🐝ladybug fan on 2021/03/08 09:42
So I had this on my phone and I just really enjoyed it! Everything about this game is awesome so many levels so many stuff that makes my day all of the things in the game makes my day better I love cooking apps and this is one of the best ones! I didn’t find any problems with this game except that it glitches sometimes and I have to get in the app again but Get this app if you haven’t cause it’s so good :D
Too many glitches
by yelhsallen on 2021/03/07 22:55
I used to LOVE this game. I used to play it all the time when I was 19. I decided to redownload it and play but oh my god the glitches. I went to replay level 8 on the steak restaurant to serve all the customers and every time I play, it charges me the 10 groceries or whatever to play, but then the app closes out. I’m stuck on level 14 in the tofu restaurant now. Every time I beat the level the game closes out so it never lets me get past it. I don’t getting so frustrated I’m about to just delete the game.
This game is broken
by Cas-Love222 on 2021/03/07 20:57
This game is broken, the levels crash, your progress isn’t saved . There isn’t much purpose in playing when you can’t progress in the game . Customer service says they are aware of the issue but have no idea when the problem will be fixed . Seems strange .
Bug
by EllMT0 on 2021/03/07 08:02
Giving two stars because I used to love this game, but lately has been a one star experience. As everyone else has mentioned, there’s a bug that they are not fixing. Super annoying, and at the very least if you can’t fix the bug then do free play or give a warning for the issue! Some people have mentioned a fix where you don’t watch your gold videos, this works for me too. But it doesn’t seem like they care about making this game playable.
Messing up
by tiredofthedownloads on 2021/03/06 11:29
I’ve enjoyed this game for a long time but now it won’t accumulate points I’ve earned. I have to remove it and download to my iPad often. 😡
Long term issues
by Jay Hawke on 2021/03/06 03:28
I love this game. There are achievements to be had. You can do it without spending money. It’s entertaining and fun. But, there has now been an issue with it for months. Completions aren’t saving with levels or events, and sometimes that even means new levels don’t open. It’s so frustrating, and support has said they’re working on it but not a single update has come. I get to points quicker and quicker of just shutting down from it. I don’t know what happened but this is so disappointing.
Known bugs - no golds or coins or status collected after completing
by CuttleBoogie on 2021/03/06 00:44
Sent multiple reports on the issue The answer is they knew about the problem but provide no solution to this. The outcomes you will loose golden saucers, recipe preps, vip and golds.
Really fun game...when it works!!!
by LEG696 on 2021/03/05 23:53
I’ve played this game for years and beat every level and it used to be awesome! But now it’s broken more than it works!!!! Almost EVERY day there is an issue with it. The game freezes up. The videos crash the app. The points don’t accumulate. The levels don’t progress. Etc. Etc. Etc. FIX YOUR GAME!!!!
Crashes
by Ashlynn Hardy on 2021/03/05 15:47
Every time I try to play episode 8 of table steaks it crashes so I have no way of beating the game. Plz fix this.
Not getting rewards after level.
by Brandee Wible on 2021/03/05 10:46
Please fix. When I complete a level It doesn’t give me my rewards most of the time. Over and over. I use my recipes that take hours for vip tickets and I don’t get those either. I should have about 10. Gold is nonexistent. As soon as the time is up in the level it goes back to main screen. Everything is updated. Please fix.
Crash
by H2o_junky on 2021/03/05 04:48
I love this game but over the past several months it’s been crashing even with the latest app and phone update. You’re required to have gold to upgrade venues, VIPs to help earn extras, and VIP tickets to beat special levels. The game has not been saving any progress in the venues when beating levels; and in turn you lose anything used to help beat the venues. Not to mention playing Trail of Style or Series Finale is futile since you can beat levels but when the time is up it’s as if nothing happened but gold and VIP tickets get depleted if used. Gotta fix the glitch already.
Game doesn’t work
by AndypantsMcD on 2021/03/04 14:40
I pass levels and I don’t get credit for it. It looks like I never played the level; therefore, I am at a standstill but it still takes my gold and grocery points. It is frustrating because I’ll use my VIP players for a level and pass it and then I use up my VIP player and don’t move forward in the game. Then I’ll come back to it a day or 2 later and it will work for a little while. Then something happens and it goes back to not moving me forward. I have emailed the help desk several times and asked them when will they fix the issue.
Progress doesn’t save
by Nickifiable on 2021/03/03 17:32
This game, while it is fun, comes with quite a few bugs. Time and time again I have played episodes to find that after I 5-star an episode the progress doesn’t save and I will have lost any power-ups/gold that I had used on the episode. The support is aware of the issue however doesn’t seem to care about fixing it as this has been an ongoing issue for at least 3 months. Don’t spend money that you care about unless you’re willing to risk your progress not saving.
Crashes constantly
by Box 23 on 2021/03/03 16:38
This is the most glitchy version of an already glitchy game. Crashes constantly. Doesn’t track points or give bonuses half the time. But l, it is fun to play.
Something wrong with this game
by Ab..aziz on 2021/03/03 13:57
It’s dose not save any progress a had ... !!!!
Crash central
by thedepressedone on 2021/03/03 08:55
Keeps crashing after I’ve finished a level, I don’t get any money/points/ rewards from the game I just played and passed it’s not fair I can’t bet the levels like this :/
Constant issues
by One More Nasty Woman on 2021/03/03 00:36
This game has had an ongoing gameplay issue for MONTHS. The game intermittently doesn’t credit items won or status changes during a level. Every once in a while it will start working properly for a few hours and then it goes right back to nothing. I’ve reached out to support multiple times. They literally have nothing to say except they’re working on it and, they don’t say it this way but, essentially they’ll get it fixed when they get it fixed and too bad so sad. I understand games have issues but your glitches have been ruining gameplay for months and nothing has been done. This is disappointing. Pretty soon I’ll just have to uninstall.
Too many glitchy kitchens.....
by Erocka22 on 2021/03/02 22:28
.....that don’t register level up. At least remove them from play + challenges....
Tips to play
by ㅇ가다아찿 on 2021/03/02 22:13
Mine doesn&#39;t crash in airplane mode. Also, do not wash free gold video until later then you should be fine
Fix this game...
by Scotmom22 on 2021/03/01 22:49
...or admit you have no plans to do so. It has been broken for months now. It is not worth playing if progress can’t be made.
The game needs to be fixed
by Boboddy69 on 2021/03/01 20:19
First I got all the way to the middle of season 2 and it restarted my game, which wasn’t that big of a deal. Until I got to the VIP final 5 or 10 levels after season 3, it makes me keep replaying the first level, taking all the tickets I had for it, and says I’ve passed it already but as soon as I beat the first level it goes to the map automatically and doesn’t give an option for level 2. Highly disappointing.
Found a (semi) patch for the bug.
by MMK16 on 2021/03/01 11:24
Hello everyone. I’ve been experiencing this extremely annoying bug since the December 2020 update as well. After doing further research, I found a fix: DO NOT watch your eight free gold videos until after you finish your daily tasks or any other levels you want credit for. Personally, my videos refresh at 4pm PST everyday. I make sure to have my tasks finished and keep playing as much as I want. All the levels work great! Around 3pm, I watch my videos and receive eight free gold, then the glitch starts again until my videos refresh at 4pm again. Hope this helps! This method is working for me so far and I’m so happy to play this game and advance again. I’d give a five star if the bug was fixed, however I have waisted recipes, VIP tickets, and even saucers before I discovered the patch. P.S. - I do NOT know if this method will grant you credit in Trial of Styles levels, as I haven’t been playing those lately, but all my regular restaurant levels seem to be working great as long as I put off watching my free gold videos.
Too Glitchy
by smashinghogwash on 2021/03/01 01:37
There is a persistent problem with progress not saving. There’s only about an hour a day that you can actually earn rewards and make progress on levels. The rest of the day you’ll pass a level and then be brought to the Home Screen. When you go back to the level you were playing it will say you haven’t passed it yet. It’s like gaslighting the game. At first I thought it was just a one time thing, but this has been happening for about two months now and it’s only getting worse. My theory is this was done on purpose so that you’ll spend more money to make sure you pass your level when the game is actually working. If you don’t, who knows how long you’ll have to wait for the game to start working again. Don’t bother downloading. It’s too frustrating!
Unplayable
by Paurri on 2021/02/28 02:27
I, like everyone else it seems like, have been experiencing the glitch where the game crashes at the end of the level before you collect your prizes. It’s taken away the reward system of the game and made it completely unplayable. The fact that hundreds of us have complained about this and they have done nothing is mind boggling. What is the point of playing a game without rewards?
Fix your bugs!
by ktnoll12 on 2021/02/27 14:46
I’ve been playing this game for years. Would have given it 5 stars, but 3 months ago, a bug started that makes the game unplayable. Levels do not count as completed. Customer service is beyond useless, saying they’re working on it and it will get fixed - It’s been 3 months and I can’t play this game that was once great.
So many bugs!
by booovdhejjdjkd on 2021/02/27 04:58
Fix ur game, back to main page after playing trail of style and have no record, waste my vip ticket. And NOT giving free prize wheel spin everyday, etc. so many bugs!
Needs an update
by justfee1983 on 2021/02/26 23:36
I’m so frustrated I like the game but I really think it needs an update I play the game a s when I get my stars and then boom the game send me right back to the same game I just beat it makes me repeat it like 10 times before it decides to let me pass the game and you need 10 groceries to play a game so I use all my groceries on the same level over and over again 😡😡😡
Love this Game but needs to be Upgraded
by Annabreeannaaa on 2021/02/26 22:09
PLEASE UPDATE THESE CRASHES !!!!
Game won’t save progress hasn’t been updated in two months
by Crstnam on 2021/02/26 22:02
If you’re not going to fix the game, just remove it from the App Store and be done with it
So many glitches
by dinoemmie on 2021/02/26 14:25
Listen, I love this game cause it’s fun and helps me waste some time. But for the past three months or so, there’s been a glitch so my game doesn’t save and I lose supplies, recipes, money, etc. It also means I can’t compete in the Trial of Style episodes so I lose golden saucers. I’ve tried contacting customer support but they keep saying it’s an ongoing issue they’re trying to solve and sometimes they refund me the recipes, golden saucers I lose or give me gold, but it’s getting so frustrating that I’m about to just delete the app.
Used to be a Great game but doesn’t work for many weeks
by ajack17 on 2021/02/26 10:16
This game has not worked since Dec 2020 and they still haven’t fixed it despite repeatedly saying they are working on it as fast as they can. The game will not record scores or achievements reliably. Don’t waste your money on this game until it’s fixed, but don’t hold your breath either. They don’t seem to be working on it despite claims to the contrary.
Fun, but Game Breaking Gitch
by BallBrigade on 2021/02/25 21:47
Let me tell you. When this game works, it’s a lot of fun. It’s easy to learn, and difficult but fun to master. However, there is currently a pretty big glitch. For most of the hours in a day, when you go to play a level and finish it, the game sends you back to the main menu without showing progress you’ve made, and at the same time taking away items, boosts, and groceries (in game currency) you spent to play that level. This also affects the ways you can get the free gold watching videos, as it constantly says there are none available. I say most hours in a day cause there’s usually a small window where this bug doesn’t happen and you can play and earn no problem. Until that’s fixed, this game is a hard pass. If they ever do find a permanent fix, then definitely pick this up.
Disappointing
by Naye105 on 2021/02/25 00:28
I have been playing this game since 2012. I have spent a lot of money in this game trying to get far as I did. After switching from a phones i noticed that all of my progress had been deleted. I had to start over from the first beginning, which is very disappointing. I have been trying to get help with this is issue, but I haven’t been helped yet. I also dislike fyber. I completed this Hulu credit reward the day before Christmas Eve to receive over 600 gold, but I never received it. I sent them all the screenshots they needed, but they keep sending me in circles. It cost me 11.99 to join Hulu, and they didn’t even give me the reward like promised. I really enjoy playing the game, but I think I’m about ready to let it go. The game has really gotten even worse. I play and get no coins or stars it keeps making me repeat levels and taking my boosts and golds.
Boooooooo
by Lovehip90 on 2021/02/24 03:50
Can’t get the next level because the season finale. Making me not want to play it no more. Money hungry
My game points are counted after each game!
by Water qoo on 2021/02/23 21:35
Please fix it.
Tracking
by minaoof1 on 2021/02/23 04:19
Guys I was just playing this game and it said that a tracking device is on.. help!!
No longer works
by MommieLovesGames on 2021/02/22 23:25
I’ve been playing for years. Last few months it is glitching and doesn’t register you beat a level. I’ve contacted support multiple times, they say this will be ongoing. Really disappointed. I really liked this game. Only one of two games I play.
Used to be great
by BellaPriya on 2021/02/22 21:07
I used to love this game and I was so excited to recently get back into it. However the design has become so busy and confusing, and it’s impossible to do well without spending money. It’s also been glitching so even though I’m watching ads to earn extra plays (it only lets you play so many games per day which I don’t understand... like don’t you want me to play your game?) I’m not getting the rewards. It also glitches after I played various levels so I wasted my daily plays and didn’t get any coins afterward. I don’t understand the changes and it’s very sad because this game used to be great.
I like Flo
by Sherryriley on 2021/02/22 18:51
Good game. I’m a little confused as I’m new to the game. So far has a lot to offer just not sure how to get into all of it. Will do a better review once I’m proficient
Frustrating to say the least
by SinClair3oo on 2021/02/22 02:52
Do NOT download this game. I have been playing this for years and it was great, but they now have a glitch that makes the game unplayable. Customer service is sh*t cause you have to literally beg to take back what the game ate up due to their error. This has a glitch that’s been going on for at least 3 months now and when contacted they say the same nonsense. This won’t be fixed anytime soon if at all. Seriously don’t get this, and be weary of this developer.
Needs an update and better customer support
by LAW_1212 on 2021/02/21 19:33
I’ve been playing this game for years and never had a problem. This last update I’ve beat boards and wasn’t given credit for the win. I’ve had items disappear and when I told customer service the response was free gold and that it won’t change until there’s an update. How does this help? It doesn’t. I’ve put money into this game so I feel I have a right to be upset.
Tech issues with no support
by jaded531 on 2021/02/21 01:21
I’ve been having trouble progressing in the game for about 2 months now. No progress will save. I’ve contacted customer service 4 times now. At first, their reps were acknowledging that other people have been having the same problem. Now, they’re telling me that it must be my device (I’ve been playing the game on my iPad for two years now with no issues in any other game; the problem isn’t my device). The customer service is sorely lacking, and unfortunately, the game is useless since I cannot make any progress in it. Please do not spend any money in this game, because if you have the same problem as me, anything you buy in the game will have less than no value.
Glitches need fixed
by 124464312357890 on 2021/02/20 22:13
I love this game but every day there is a glitch that causes it to not give you the points or stars for levels when completing so you can’t move on to the next level. It last for hours sometimes and happens multiple times a day. If it weren’t for the glitches I would give it 4 stars. 5 if you didn’t have to use so much gold to buy upgrade anything.
Cooking dash
by lomkim on 2021/02/20 18:19
I love this game a lot but I hate that I play the same level over and over and it will say I didn’t play the level at all so i get stuck on the same level !!! Fix please
Game has not worked since December
by Teacher197 on 2021/02/20 14:59
I have played, and loved, this game for years. However, since December the game will not let you progress through levels. You complete a level and it just makes you constantly re-repeat it. I have contacted customer service multiple times. They just say they know it’s an issue and please be patient. Well, it’s been three months. I have about given up on them ever fixing this bug.
Worst App Ever
by elorapalmer on 2021/02/20 01:22
Had 8 restaurants completed and then I updated the app and it completely wiped my progress! 🤗 they also never answered my customer support message to see if they could get my game back. Sorry I ever spent money on this app, definitely won’t make that mistake again
Disappointed
by KeylaVar on 2021/02/19 21:46
I downloaded this game and enjoy the game tonight. After completing season three, the app asked me to link my account to either Apple, Facebook, or Google. Which I did. Once the account was linked I lost all my coins, call bars, as well as my season play. After contacting customer support, I was instructed to uninstall the game and reinstall the game which was completed four times. Once I got to season three I was unable to pass level six after four attempts. It was fun while it lasted although it was short. Uninstalled
Trouble moving to next level...glitch?
by hdudhdhgy on 2021/02/19 20:54
I really like this game I’m playing it for a long time but recently I have been having trouble not only in the trailer style but they happens more there than other levels . I have beaten a level on trial style numerous times with flying colors and it’s not registering to the game and letting me move onto the next level.Before it continues with the stars after you beat a level it just goes right to the main page or it goes to something else in the game like, daily goals.
Takes your money
by Kikipatt5 on 2021/02/19 13:56
I like the game but as many say it is expensive. If you do buy more gold like I do they end up not saving your progress when you get 5 stars to unlock other trophies. Last 2 games I played with VIP it’s cuts off at the end. I have complained to customer service and the will give you 15 coins or your VIP back but to many problems for me. I don’t want to have to send Customer service a note very time I play. Deleting today.
Frustrated
by Jules Osborn on 2021/02/19 03:50
Last update was 2 months ago and it created serious bugs in gameplay. I am unable to complete levels. Been in contact with customer service and all they tell me is that they are working on it. Used to be a daily player, will never spend money in the app again.
Trash
by kailucille on 2021/02/18 22:41
This game is trash. I played it and it glitches and does not Work so often. I am over it. ahhhhhh
FIX IT- New update not working - two months!!!
by Smc50322 on 2021/02/18 06:27
Levels are not showing as being completed. Cannot progress. Please fix.
use to be great
by Jtriscuit on 2021/02/18 02:28
this game was my favorite but now i don’t get rewards for completing levels or my vip tickets that are dropped. Also i have to redownload all my restaurants every time I play. Just awful now.
Doesn’t work anymore — don’t spend any $$
by Cathrob on 2021/02/17 18:55
I’ve been totally addicted to this game — love all the little characters and foods :-) but 1) it is DESIGNED to rip you off big time and 2) they’ve now abandoned it (as of Winter 20-21). It’s a total mess now and you never know when it will work and when it won’t — at least half the time you play and advance but the game doesn’t record it. Don’t invest your time. I’ve held off writing this but after many weeks of losing time and effort I’ge given up — they keep saying they don’t know when they can fix it. So don’t start!!
Game Not The Same
by MMG💘 on 2021/02/17 03:28
We need an update. The game isn’t performing good. So many things going wrong. Y’all need to do an update and fix these glitches.
What the actual F***
by Runningskunk53 on 2021/02/16 23:44
What the actual F*** I was playing the game I was on season 2 of the first restaurant and the unfair thing is you guys for some reason made my game start back over from season 1 episode 1 if your game keeps doin this I’m not gonna play this game
Lagging
by paper.io12445 on 2021/02/16 16:33
Love the game 100%! But every time I log my facebook in to link with this device it messes up! It says no internet connection and the game will just freeze up at random times. No matter how many times I restart this game, it still gets stuck in the same spot every time. Disappointed.
Hasn’t worked leveling up in 2 months
by GAMom3 on 2021/02/15 20:39
Game hasn’t worked to let me make progress in 2 months. I email then and they reply with “how sorry” they are and “how upsetting “ that must be. But never a solution or fix. I’ve been playing this game for several years and am so frustrated that they can’t fix a MAJOR issue. Why would someone play a game they can’t gain levels or proceed forward in? Very disappointing. I used to love this game.
New update caused a lot of problems
by Luckyswifey16 on 2021/02/15 18:39
It doesn’t register that I completed any new levels. Please fix ASAP About toUninstall still can’t play every time I beat a level it closes the game and don’t register please fix it
Glitch
by Christ 168 on 2021/02/15 16:18
Experiencing a glitch. The game takes my boosts and energy and never registers my progress. Please fix this glitch. It’s very annoying. The game is unplayable right now.
Game is complete trash! Uninstalling
by Candis2009 on 2021/02/15 16:03
This most recent update has PROBLEMS! I’ve played an episode many times and not gotten the stars for it. I’ve also watched ads for pieces of gold and not received them. After I play an episode it’ll take me to main screen to select a venue and not back to the episode and/or venue I was previously playing.
Need to put money in to progress
by Flashy person on 2021/02/15 02:37
A game is never free now a days. You need certain amount of coins to buy this and that in order to complete a level. Sure you’ll be able to play the first season but not the rest because you need to pay for coins and gold
They are slowly stealing progress from longtime players
by Choc Roni on 2021/02/14 23:27
I have sent them multiple messages regarding how items I have PURCHASED have been lost over the past few weeks. Initially they credited me for them, but today they said they can’t promise the issue will be fixed, and didn’t even reimburse me what was lost. The developer suggested I not participate in the Trial of Style. I did as they asked, then got penalized for not playing, as my saucers were stripped away. All that said, I have decided to delete the game. This is ridiculous.
Glitch won’t let you advance/ no fix
by Bronzino on 2021/02/14 18:43
I play this game a lot, but I guess I won’t be very much anymore. There is a glitch that will not let you advance in the Trial of Style. You will be able to spend groceries and VIP tickets; you will beat the level; it will not let you advance; and those groceries and tickets are wasted. You do not get them back. It also won’t let you accumulate gold and groceries in the special events. I’ve contacted customer care twice and they said they are aware and have no idea when it will be fixed. I don’t understand how they can’t get it fixed. It’s been an ongoing problem for several weeks. Maybe they are phasing the game out and aren’t fixing things anymore.
Fix the game please
by Jrhgirl on 2021/02/14 18:23
I’ve been playing this for 2 years now. Originally gave 5 stars but lower to two because for over 4 months now their have been glitches. It isn’t saving your progress. The latest update didn’t fix it either. Fix the game please
Love/Hate
by May be a runner? on 2021/02/14 18:01
This game is a lot of fun and there are many levels you can play. However, if you aren’t willing to invest real money into it, you get stuck and can’t beat levels or move forward. They balance this out by having special events and rewards, but more than half the time the game stops working during these periods. Even if you beat a level, it doesn’t save the progress. I think this is done intentionally to ensure you pay to play.
Disappointed
by shushshakanwajisd on 2021/02/13 18:19
I loved this game but it’s very glitchy sometime if I completed a level it’ll never say I did
Glitches
by Lost_Adventurer on 2021/02/13 14:16
I loved this game so much but the glitches are terrible. If I beat a level or increase my stars, it doesn’t recognize it. It glitches close the level and takes my energy, tickets or VIPs. This game is so much fun but I can’t keep playing if it won’t let me progress. Please fix the glitches, I love this game!
By a true gamer
by slowgame79 on 2020/09/06 21:22
I honestly love this game. I have been playing for over five years now and they do have glitches but sometimes they work them out haha and they still working progress and that means they love the energy and the time and work that they put into it to . I my self have put thousands in these games I’ve played that’s how much I love the game but I found a way not to spend so much anymore lol just being patient with thier glitches and I know it gets frustrating trust me, I play for hrs and lose sleep over this game and I’m constantly talking to them about the issues. Because just like my son we stuck inside all the time because of this virus and this playing games online is what we do to past time and get things off our minds so we don’t go crazy lol. Well I think most of you gamers understand so if we stay on their butts about issues maybe they will keep working out the glitches and make us even happier. But I do thank them and I will for sure keep playing because yes also it’s An addicting game as many more other games lol so that’s all I have to say for now thank you for your time and keep pushing for them to fix the glitches say hell to the yay yay lol good luck friends and be safe
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.
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.
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!
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.
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!!
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
Found a (semi) patch for the bug.
by MMK16 on 2021/03/01 11:24
Hello everyone. I’ve been experiencing this extremely annoying bug since the December 2020 update as well. After doing further research, I found a fix: DO NOT watch your eight free gold videos until after you finish your daily tasks or any other levels you want credit for. Personally, my videos refresh at 4pm PST everyday. I make sure to have my tasks finished and keep playing as much as I want. All the levels work great! Around 3pm, I watch my videos and receive eight free gold, then the glitch starts again until my videos refresh at 4pm again. Hope this helps! This method is working for me so far and I’m so happy to play this game and advance again. I’d give a five star if the bug was fixed, however I have waisted recipes, VIP tickets, and even saucers before I discovered the patch. P.S. - I do NOT know if this method will grant you credit in Trial of Styles levels, as I haven’t been playing those lately, but all my regular restaurant levels seem to be working great as long as I put off watching my free gold videos.
I’m not even a gamer
by byebye1214 on 2021/01/04 13:33
But this was a game I would love to play and I did not mind spending money in it at all. It is expensive like people say but I would take my time with it. And my game unfortunately got uninstalled and I wasn’t aware for a while. So when I downloaded it back I’ve been trying to sync through facebook but it hasn’t been working.😩 So I contacted customer service. They basically told me to do the same thing I’ve already tried . I feel like they should have a better way to get people their game progress back cause people like me don’t mind spending the money on the game but I worked so hard and spent so much money already. They should have some way to troubleshoot people’s game progress back. It took me months to get where I was and a lot of money spending . I had 5 stars on every episode, auto chefs, and total food upgrade FOR EVERY SINGLE RESTAURANT I HAD OPEN. Not to mention it gets more expensive the farther you get . That took a lot of hard work and if they can’t find another way to get me my progress back I will no longer playing cause I’ve already had to start the game over twice I will not a third time .
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.
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! 🤬🤬🤬
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.
Painful
by E|i on 2020/08/31 03:44
This game is a lot of fun. Don’t get it. Seriously, I love playing, but the game’s main function requires groceries to play, and they are expensive to buy. What ends up happening is you have fun for 20 minutes, spend another 10 waiting for a few groceries, and then move on to something else because it’s not worth waiting any longer. There are probably over a thousand levels spread between the different restaurants, and it would take a year to complete them all with this problem, even if you played all day, every day. From what I understand, there’s no way to speed up how quickly the groceries come, or raise the maximum that you can have from waiting (50 may seem like a lot but that’s only 5 games). You can only pay gold to get some more, and it’s a lot to pay all the time. They should have a function that lets you use real money to permanent have infinite groceries, kind of like games that spam you with ads but you can pay to remove them. I think it would be worth the developers’ time and money.
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.
Individual Restaurants take forever to download
by fire_flies on 2020/12/11 04:59
I really love this game and would really love to give it 5 stars because I play this for hours on end almost everyday but I have come across one issue. Every time I join all the restaurants say “downloading” even ones I have not purchased yet. To download the content of trial of style the game has to download the content of each restaurant in the game, which there are a lot of. Not to mention the download speed is very long. There is also no background downloading so you have to be on the main map screen for the restaurants to even beginning downloading, you can’t play levels while waiting for it to download. This whole process takes 30+ minutes in my experience and makes it unenjoyable to play since I can almost never play trial of style unless I want to wait 30 minutes. I would also agree with those that say this game is money hungry. Gold is very hard to receive in this game and you should have more ways in getting gold instead of paying or watching videos.
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.
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).
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!
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.
Got a few issues but otherwise is fun
by Pillowcase26 on 2020/07/01 19:42
Gameplay is smooth and this is a good and fun game overall, if a little pay to win. It’s kind of annoying to have to sink so much gold to max a venue, considering how many venues there are. I’ll make a list of select issues that aren’t too important but I feel the need to mention, in hopes they’ll be fixed or retooled. 1. Morsel Magnet has a delay, which makes it difficult to use. Maybe make Flo not able to move while she’s getting things, or have the animation of getting it but she already has it so she can use it instantly. Otherwise things go really bad. 2. Premonition is really ugly and clunky. They look like orders when they’re not and they confuse me, plus they get in the way of swipe collecting tips. Also the numbers are all over the place. Maybe move the bubbles to the left more so they don’t block tips and don’t look like current orders, and allow sauces and toppings to be added to dishes if they are premonitioned. 3. Give better uses for coins. An exponentially priced Deal Wheel isn’t good enough. Maybe bring back the surprise box? Heck, I’d even accept charging coins for VIP dishes but making gold have a higher chance to drop from them. 4. Maybe an undo button? Not to reverse something being cooked because you can’t do that realistically, but to uncheck something you accidentally clicked on. These are a few issues I had with the game. Otherwise the game is good.
Love this game but...
by hauntedintuition on 2020/08/28 00:37
I’ve been playing this game on my iPad for years and love it... but... a recurrent issue that I’ve been having is when attempting to watch videos for daily gold. I will watch a video for gold, and it will work... but then the next ad will freeze (which freezes the app) without playing. I will have to close the app, open it again, and try again for gold. Unfortunately, since the ad attempted to play (but failed), that opportunity for gold is lost... and since there are only 8 ads available for gold per day, I often am unable to claim all 8 free gold. This issue makes it very frustrating when attempting to play the game, because it takes longer to upgrade supplies/items for each “show”, which makes it difficult to progress in the game. My iPad is set to auto-update so it always is running at the most current iOS, so that isn’t the issue. Please fix!!!
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...
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!
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.
Used to be Better

I have been playing this game for over 4 years! I remember waiting for each individual stage to come out and the right side of VIP Valhalla didn’t even exist, this was way back before the map expanded to what it is today. This game has always been difficult to advance in. You have to watch a lot of ads to earn gold. I’ve cleared 17 restaurants (half of them with max stars) and can honestly say it is practically impossible to do so without spending gold for restaurant upgrades. You can earn up to 11 gold per day watching ads but some stages require hundreds of gold to upgrade its equipment! For instance, Cutie Cakes needs at least 1000 gold (or $50) for full upgrades. Multiply that by 39 restaurants and this quickly becomes the most expensive app you’ll own. I don’t mind spending money on games, I work for a gaming company so I understand and I want to support this game’s developers. I love the art and mechanics of this game. However, the monetization in Cooking Dash is really bad. The upgrades are way too expensive. It drives people away rather than entices them to spend money. Also, it seems like this company has started to put its efforts into their new game Diner Dash Adventures and are no longer developing new restaurants for Cooking Dash. Now, Cooking Dash has tons of bugs. The game crashes sometimes and is unplayable. Reaching out to support doesn’t help. This is so disappointing considering all of the time and money I’ve put into this game.
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!
Fix the glitches and it will be fun again
by Merbear41 on 2021/01/10 14:31
I love this game because there are so many options for play. It helps me with my anxiety, just to focus on something small for a few minutes. I have been playing it for years, and love all the Diner Dash games. This one since the last bug fix has been glitchy - you will pass a level but then the game doesn’t unlock the next level. So you’re just stuck. I thought maybe it was just a certain restaurant, but it’s been happening in multiple restaurants. I even just bought a new one with 25 gold and could only play the first two episodes - even though I passed the second one the third remains locked. Without these bugs I would have given it 5 stars. I think 4 is even generous at this point since I’m not sure how much longer I’ll even be able to play it. Hopefully it gets fixed soon!
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!
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
Needs Improving !!
by Jzekhyria on 2018/01/03 07:32

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.
Fun game but too many flicked
by chickenpantz on 2021/02/06 19:26
I played this for years and loved it but stopped for a while as I got busy. I reinstalled on a new phone to start playing again. Problems everywhere. Too many options to get like pets, outfits, trial by style, etc it makes the game confusing. It used to be simpler. The worst part are the major bugs which make it hard to want to continue playing this game. To often it does not register my win and count up the stars and money and goes straight to the main screen. So basically I lost my groceries and prep recipes used to play that episode and lost all my winnings. Eventually it starts to work for a bit but then starts up again. They gave me a free 10 gold bars after I complained but that is not enough as I have lost way more. I refuse to pay for anything in the app for fear of losing it or my progress. No matter how much fun the game is I will eventually stop playing it unless the issues are fixed soon.
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
No Support for broken game
by Aklilah on 2021/01/24 13:41
I have played this game FOR YEARS. It is the only one I indulge in spending real money to play. It is so fun and customer service used to be great but now you get no support and the game is constantly broken. It used to be Customer Care would at least throw you a little bit of gold or if you missed an event because of a glitch they would give you the prize if you were on track to get it but now you get absolutely nothing and long waits for fixes (if they get fixed at all).The bugs make it near impossible to play. During the holidays, I missed basically all the events because multiple levels would not let me progress despite beating them. I got zero help from support when I wrote tickets and they refused to refund any of my purchased gold. It is clear that Glu is now just phoning it in since they are no longer updating the game and they don’t care about their customers or their game experience. Highly recommend playing a different game and spending your hard earned money elsewhere.
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.
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.
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.
Too glitchy!
by Remsleebeau. on 2021/01/21 07:55
I have been playing this game for a very long time! I even started a new account to redo some of my progress. I thought it was my phone glitching because every time I played, it would skip to the front screen and I’d get no stars, money, nothing. So I just used up 10 groceries for it to not give me anything. I’ve won a ton of times and not been rewarded. I’ve even contacted the company and they were rude and said they already knew it was glitchy and they were working on it. It’s been happening A LOT and still not update and not working right. I play every other day so it actually works. Hope you guys fix it soon... and to people complaining about the gold, click on the gold and it’ll let you watch the ads up to 9 times I believe, as long as you don’t watch the other ads for groceries or the “people”. I do it everyday and get gold.
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....
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.
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.
