Let us know, I'm tempted as I actually like games where you manage things. But all the management games on iOS for eateries ect are terrible freemium and not done right. I've yet to find one anyway.

Poor use of English is never a good start. I've translated it for free in the past for a dev even though they paid someone it still needed improvement. Although I am terrible with grammar.

I played it up to level 7 before I delete. I will share what I feel.

The graphic is nice and cute (main reason why I gave it a try), but it looks a bit blurry on my 9.7 inch iPad pro, not as sharp as the screenshot. Also the girl in the tutorial looks squeezed, as if the art suppose to fit for a wider screen. Maybe it looks better on iPhone.

Interface is a bit clumsy. The truck interface is too small, and the trading interface is a mess (that's when I delete the game). I don't like the drag-and-drop way of cooking either. Sometimes when I do one drop it fills 2 spots, and I cannot undo. Much prefer simple click. Whenever you serve a customer, you get a popup screen telling you how much you earn, and it stays for 2 seconds, which is annoying.

Some things are unclear. There is obviously an inventory limit, because whenever I make a yogurt or coffee, I get a small screen indicating how full my inventory is. But I cannot find anywhere I can actively check how many of each thing I have in my inventory. There is a special type of currency for speeding up (aside from the usual in-game coin and premium diamond you see in almost all F2P), but no idea how to get those, other than completing some tasks. Oh btw, tasks are easy but somewhat repetitive, and I don't know if there is a limit of how many you can get eventually.

And yes there are timers on almost everything. So far not too long (1-2 minutes) but I only unlocked the most basic stuff. Speed up requires special currency (already mentioned), no idea whether you need to pay money for them later on. I got enough for my brief play.

When you first login using your GC id, you get assigned a random string as your name. I figured how to change it, but my first 3 tries getting "invalid name" message (those are just strings, no special char). Not sure why so I tried "abc1" and it works. Then I realized once you change it, you cannot change again =.= Still haven't figured how to change my dog's name (can I?).

Translation is not good. Tried both English and Chinese. English is slightly better, but still sometimes confusing. Chinese translation is like they used Google translate or something, barely comprehensible. Based on the user name of other players, I think this is a Korean developer?

Overall, I wouldn't recommend. Possibly will give it 5/10 score. I guess if you speak Korean and play on a phone it might be better. But still, unless you insists on Cafeteria theme, go play Hayday, Township, or Paradise Bay.
