I have only done the tutorial (the very first "day") so far, I am rather impressed. This game is very much Cook, Serve, Delicious, at least the part I played so far, just wish a Japanese sushi restaurant style.
Will update later as I get further in.

Played a little last night. Graphic is nice but feel a bit generic. Levels don't feel too hard so far (but I only played like 15 levels). You need gems (premium currency) for most upgrades, so don't expect to fully upgrade everything without spending real money. You were given quite a few gems when you level up though, and so far it doesn't look like you need full upgrade to achieve 3 star ratings either.

Game play is almost identical to Cooking Fever, and production value also seems on par. So if you like Japanese cuisine and never played Cooking Fever before, it's worth a try. Otherwise, don't bother.

Oh, btw, the game require online 100%. It will kick you out in the middle of the game if you lose connection, or in my case, the server had a hiccup.

Top 3 is pretty easy, especially at the earlier levels. You have the 4 tables and 4 dishes ready (one salmon, one shrimp, one tuna, one egg), serve one and replace. Feels nice when you get into a good rhythm. Now though, I'm at 22 or 23 and I have 7 different dishes x.x Now it's getting hard since I can't have dishes already made. I think what I have to start doing is leaving the money so I can start prepping (set dishes, soy sauce, cook rice) before the next wave of people.

What a CRAP game. I can't even download the "extra" data why couldn't they make this offline? I've played this company's games before and I'm sorely disappointed in this game. Even when I do get past the update it hangs at a black screen loading FOREVER. I cannot express how crappy this game actually is.
