"4.5/5 - this PC to iPad port is terrific to the touch...[a] culinary tablet masterpiece." -Touch Arcade

"Cook, Serve, Delicious is a must have for simulation enthusiasts." -PadGadget

"It's not an easy game to excel at, but it's an easy game to get hooked on, and the challenge of building and running your own restaurant from front to back is going to captivate you for weeks on end...With depth to rival a strategy game and carefully controlled chaos ruling the action sequences, Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a rare release that encourages you to play until you master every nuance of gameplay. You'll have a great time doing it, and once you reach that zen-like state, your little food hut will be a sight to behold." -JayisGames.com

"4.5/5 Stars. Cook, Serve, Delicious isnt Filet Mignon, but it is an awesome, consistently delicious meal." -Gamezebo.com

"Overall, Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a wonderfully addictive game that takes the best parts of Diner Dash, Hot Dog King, and Restaurant Empire and crams them all into one nice, meaty package. It will definitely test your reflexes and can be a bit nuts at times in terms of difficulty, yet it manages to keep you engaged in a way that encourages you to do better. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy time management and simulation games." -Vincent Paone, dadsgamingaddiction.com

"There's an odd appeal to this game." -Ryan Davis, Giantbomb.com

"This seems like a cool game... I just want a corndog..." -Jeff Gerstmann, Giantbomb.com

Cook, Serve, Delicious is a strategic restaurant sim, one of the few in its genre that gives the players total control over where they want to take their restaurant.

The game centers on an old, worn down restaurant in the SherriSoda Tower, which was once the heart of the building but closed down as business (and tenants) dropped to an all time low. But with the local economy rising back up and occupancy reaching its maximum, SherriSoda Tower has decided to bring back the old Cook, Serve, Delicious restaurant, and has given you complete control to bring it back to its old five star status of world class dining.

To do that, youll start with a few thousand dollars and thirty foods to choose from to put on your menu, as well as a host of restaurant equipment and more. Nearly everything is unlocked from the start of the game for you to purchase; this is your restaurant, and you must figure out the best strategy to get that restaurant packed with satisfied customers. Can you prove your culinary skills?

And if that werent enough, youll also have the opportunity to be cast in the Iron Cook television show, throw parties for offices in SherriSoda Tower, read virtual mail in your SherriSoda Tower Email account which ranges from game tips to crazy spam, from customers providing feedback to your restaurant to opportunities to being able to fund projects via "ClicknStart" and other big surprises!

With hours of content and tons of secrets and unlockables, Cook, Serve, Delicious will provide a big challenge for anyone whos ready to take their crumbling, rat infested eatery to a luxurious Platinum Star Restaurant. Good luck!

Having played this port, it's fantastic. It's criminal that it isn't getting more press here...

Go buy it and play it and cook it then serve it! Do it.

This time of the year the AppStore get a little crowded of new titles, that's why!

Anyway, I put this title in the hidden gems thread to get some attention from the users!

There's a TouchArcade review up now at least! (And a very good one at that)

So my thanks to TA for alerting me to this, I'm actually going to buy the more expensive PC version because for some reason the idea of the keyboard commands appeals to me. I'll likely double buy if this ever makes it over to the iPhone side.

Well, I picked this up earlier today - now just hoping that there isn't a premature "app store panic" and a straight drive down to $1 within a month. People need to learn to pay appropriate prices for things, which in this case means higher, not lower. :P

I think there's a bug with steak. The dry spicy steak says two kicks of spice, but when I use two spices and serve it right it only gets an average.

I am really liking this games.
Is it possible to make it left handed as well? (Orders on the right, and ingredients on the left)
Having a hard time tapping and not seeing what's going on .

I really thought about doing that as all games were going down to $1, but in the end I decided against it since the game barely launched a week ago. It just didn't seem right to do. So don't worry, no firesale anytime soon.

It actually says "Seasoned with two kicks of spice" meaning you need one dash of seasoning, and two dashes of spice. But you're right in that the wording is kind of confusing, so I'll fix that in the next patch.

Unfortunately with the way the game is coded it would take a lot of extra work to implement. I could look at it once I get all the game updates done, but that might not be for a few months. I'm really sorry and I'll make sure that future games have a better implementation for left handed people.
