Great game but.
By Allison Fink
To be honest, this is one of my favorite games on my iPad and it’s really fun. And one thing I love about is that your get too cook and it’s a challenge. But when I unlock a new restaurant I get so excited but it cost lots of money. And some times you have to redo levels, so if you do get this game you will have to work harder. And remember you will have to redo levels sometimes and stuff. But I love that in the game at a certain level you get the automatic cook machine this is really helpful if a lot of the times you have like a lot of customers, I think it’s way more faster when you have Max upgrade for the hotdogs or burgers. I would highly recommend and I think you really should get it when you have your gems. Save up because this is really helpful if you like to play the game a lot and you like really wanna do you like upgrades and you wanna unlock new places so far before I had it I didn’t have a lot of money but now I have a bunch because the machine. This game has so much stuff and I’m really happy because it doesn’t have a bunch of ads and it’s really realistic to bunch of like real life. But I feel like the cupcakes should be like you can spend money on them like for the upgrades because the germs and stuff I don’t think so. This is my review and I really really like the games please get it if you have a chance.
Awesome but GEMS
This is personally my favorite cooking time management game. Whenever I come back home I click on this game and play for hours. It’s also not totally impossible to pass levels, unlike other cooking games which require you to have a certain amount of customers to win, and that they don’t give you! And I really like the visuals and sound effects on this game. However, one annoying thing about this game is GEMS! I wish there could be other ways to add gems, like watching ads or getting 3 stars on a level. It’s also so annoying when I want to buy restaurants but then have to use my gems for upgrades instead (they make upgrades way too expensive, most of the upgrades require gems)! But for people who are impatient for me, you can earn gems by playing the last level of a restaurant over and over again, which I love to do with the fast food court. You can also earn 2 gems after checking in for 7 days, and 2 gems for each day after the 7th day. However, I DON’T recommend the casino unless you have a lot of money! I’ve tried it before many times by spending many coins and have only gained gems 1-2 times.
Overall, besides the problems with gems and upgrades, this game is really fun and addicting! Even though gems are an annoyance, I still really enjoy playing this game!
This game is awesome! But...

This game is super cool! I love the fact that you can cook and the realness of the hot dogs burning and the cake burning. People are complaining about the diamonds and I am too but it’s not just the diamonds! It’s also the fact that you spend the wrong amount of money on the perks. Like the hot dogs are 800 coins and 5 gems! That doesn’t leave us with enough coins or gems to get a new building! I also have a problem with the casino. I have only won the casino once! It drains your money like the water goes down a drain in a bath tub! It’s annoying and once you realize the casino is a rip off you have already spent all the money you have made! The last thing I have a problem with is the bakery. I think their using the bakery to get you to buy the diamonds. The customers get angry quickly and that means you rarely get tips! That doesn’t help us get the amount of money you need to buy a new restaurant. I am often too fed up with the bakery to even do it! The beginners have it bad because of how quickly the customers get angry. I hope you see this and learn a little bit of things about this game before you purchase it. I’m not telling you to not download the game but I’m also telling you that it’s not as perfect as it seems

Great game but takes long time to collect gems
I just completed this game by earning all levels with 3 stars on all 26 restaurants in six months without spending any money. The game is fun to play and levels are easy to pass once you do your upgrades. The developer is right, you can play this game without spend any money, all you need is time and be patient (I mean during the days collect gems and also play same levels over and over again)
Here is my tips to get gems. You can earn 2x15 gems from casino everyday (12 hours apart), Plus daily sign in. The restaurant I highly recommend to play over and over again is Corn dog Van on island. This restaurant is very relax to play (no pricey automated machine) and takes 3 minutes to finish level 40, but give you about 1040 XPs each time (need upgrade food price, tips and extra clients to max). So if you play 10 times, it will give you 7 gems every 30 minutes by level up. I collect at least 50 gems every day by doing above.
The reason I give a 4 star is the upgrade are too pricey. Gems take long time to get. Also some “challenge” levels makes me a little frustrated. Overall this is a great game, fun to play, hope more restaurants are coming out soon.
Gets Annoying Quickly
By Sylvie Wells
I have been playing this game for about 2 months. When you download the game you think that you’ll just be able to hop from restaurant to restaurant and play as you wish. Then you figure out that restaurants cost GEMS. And next you find out that you need those for upgrades too. The ways to acquire gems are by 1) visiting the app every day in row for 9 days and so on. This is hard to remember to do. If you miss a day, you have to wait for 8 or so more days until you get the two gems. 2) Leveling up on experience. This requires you to play levels SO MANY times. You get 7 for that after a certain level. 3) The Casino. It is a rip off if you don’t know that you can only get gems on the 500 coin option RIGHT AFTER collecting your daily coins from the restaurants. You still end up spending between 5,000and 50,000 coins. That is around 5-50 levels worth. A level takes around 3 minutes so that is around 15 to 150 minutes (2.5 hours) of playing just to get the FIFTEEN GEMS. That it is only enough for a low end restaurant or about 3 upgrades. It is so time consuming just to buy upgrades and more restaurants that I was spending more and more time on it, even upwards of 4 hours some days. It got more and more frustrating. It doesn’t bring me joy anymore so I’m deleting it. I’ll find a game that you don’t need to spend so much time on.
For the first time ever, I played the casino twice in one day (12hrs apart) and got 15 gems each time. This game is highly addictive. I played it obsessively for awhile but when they started with the ads after every level, I fell back. So then I started closing the app out after every level which I thought would become annoying but it’s 2nd nature now. Another tip that works great for me, I don’t open a new restaurant until I’ve collected 300 gems. It takes time, but it’s so worth it when you can breeze through and make all of the upgrades and purchases you want immediately!! Just save about 100 gems at least for levels 20-30 so that you can purchase whatever automatic cooking machine is available. They’re usually worth it. A good website for tips and tricks is noodle arcade (google it). Just type in cooking fever and you’ll learn all kinds of stuff! The best restaurants to boost your XP points are Sirtaki Tavervna (1300XP points on level 40) Hell’s Kitchen (1100XP points on level 40) and the Sandwich Shop (1100 points on level 40). This is the only game I play on my phone now since candy crush became too difficult at level 2000+ but I love this! Hope this helps... happy gaming!!
Great game, but gems are hard to come by
I enjoy this game but once you get to a far enough experience level, gems (necessary for making upgrades to complete levels) are harder to get, as more and more experience becomes necessary. Also, when the game has a promotion, the likelihood of winning gems in the “casino” lessens. These are all tactics the game developers use to try and get you to make in app purchases. $10 for 125 gems will only get you so far, when many of the necessary upgrades can cost 10-20 gems (Pizzeria) and new restaurants cost 25-50 gems. It can get very costly when this needs to be done over and over again to make progress. The only other option is to replay levels over and over again to gain experience. Additionally, some levels (Chinese restaurant), customers stop coming even if none have been lost because certain upgrades have not been purchased. Still a four star because it’s fun and the best time management game out there, but definitely designed to get you to pay, a lot. Get your wallets ready.
Edit: I haven’t won a single gem since giving this a four start review - 5 days. So I’m going to edit to 5 stars and see what happens.
First cooking game I downloaded, loved it, but moved on
This was the first cooking game I downloaded. I loved it when I was playing the food court stage with the burgers and fries. I have since bought the pizza and Chinese restaurants. While I loved this game I’m the beginning, I agree with many others that it simply is too costly to get upgrades on equipment because the amount of gems needed is just too much, and the payoff is not enough. To upgrade your equipment (just to get 2 stars in a higher level) costs coins and 10-15 gems!
I liked this game because, unlike some other cooking games (or mobile games in general), it doesn’t supply only a limited amount of lives to play and that you’d have to wait for the lives to replenish. I think that’s why upgrading the equipments, food, and restaurant are so costly, because the developers probably want people to play the levels over and over. I won’t say this game is bad but I will say that this game is not suited for my work lifestyle anymore. I want a game where I do spend effort on each level and revisit each level to earn more currency, but not to the point where I have to play the levels an x amount of times just to earn some measly coins and gems. The payoff is just not worth the time spent.
I loved this game but I have moved on to another cooking game.
Played for years, NOW you add AD’s!!
I have played this game for at least 3 years, I have spent more money than I care to admit. I truly love the game but now after all these years of playing, when you finish a level, you have to sit thru a d@#n AD! WTC! Yes, you get a reward but there is no bypass. I have more coins then I will ever spend so I don’t need the ads or reward. This is a world of instant gratification, I don’t want to have to sit thru an add to move to another level. I really want to continue playing and watching the game grow but I don’t think I can handle the ads. I understand why your need for them for you company but you need to offer another option. Even if I have to pay $4.99 to play the game with out adds from now on, it will be an option. I don’t like have the choice taken from me. Unless there is a bypass that I am unaware of, I don’t think I will be playing much longer. I do appreciate the entertainment all these years up to this point, don’t think I’m ungrateful. I wouldn’t complain about the ads either, if I were a user that never spent real money in the game. Unfortunately, I have invested a good bit of funds to build all the islands. The users like me deserve to play the game AD free, in the least! That is just my humble opinion. lol Thank you!
Great Game but little things like expenses are ruining it
Great game! Honestly I really like this game. I really do but there are so many little things that are ruining the fun like expenses. I love unlocking new restaurants and foods but lots are very expensive maybe not in coins but definitely in diamonds. I mean, why do you need so many diamonds just to upgrade or something. In the Sports Bar, the almond drink mixer is super slow and even though I’ve had the Sports Bar for about 3 weeks, I haven’t even upgraded that mixer because you need 7 diamonds and something like 3000 coins! That’s the thing that really drives me nuts. 👎👎👎
Also what would help is more patience the customers have. Sure, the higher the level to harder it is but in like Level 6 I lost 2 customers just because of the mixer. 😑😠 Lastly, I think that you need to fix the casino. I’ve played it probably about 50times and I’ve only won about 4 and no, I’m not kidding. If you think I am try it for yourself 😤😤. You should add more “luck” to the casino.
I think those 3 things could definitely be fixed. And there are more minor things but since these are major I'll only include those. Please consider fixing these problems.
