The new update has a glitch and I’m seconds away from deleting this app if the urgency of fixing it is not sooner than later
Preview prior to challenges! 3/5
I love this game and what it has to offer but the only downfall to me, and the reasoning for the 3 star rating is because I really wish the creators would allow us a preview of what the challenges are! We have not yet cooked with these food items and putting the meals together is quite frustrating especially because I know I’m fast. If you could give us the preview, I would love this game even more!
I used to love this game and actually spent actual money on it because of how often it is updated and the potential for unlimited restaurants for continuous game play. However, it is now more frustrating than fun even with the updates. As a player, you had access to an unlimited number of cupcakes to give to the customers to keep them from leaving. Now you can only have up to 25 cupcakes at a time. The greed of the developers are apparent in this scheme. The game also now freezes and you lose a heart when you reopen the app. This has gone on for a month now. Furthermore, the person that is in need of the cupcake doesn’t get it which forces them to leave. Sometimes this means losing the level altogether. This game will now go in the folder of all the other games I used to play and when the developers decide to fix these issues maybe I will give this game another try.
I’ve been playing this game and love the pace and I nearly made it though all of the levels. The game crashed and now my progress is lost and my app is stuck on the tutorial on how to collect cupcakes. This was after I purchased spoons!
Was a Great game until the update broke it 1/5
I was all the way up to Tokyo when the last update brought me back to the first donut making trainer screen and just stays there?!?!? What happened? I've already tried all the fixes but it still won't work? Please fix this ASAP! And don't let me lose my progress. Thanks!
They know how to make money! 2/5
This game is sly! at some level it is impossible for you to win without purchasing the spoons!!
Money Grubbing Developers 1/5
Have to pay to play this game. Rigged!
Won’t load 1/5
I have played this game for quite a while and enjoyed it, but on the last few days I have not been able to get it to load. Hoping a fix is on the way!!!
Really challenging and fun BUT...... 3/5
This game is really fun and challenging and can be super addicting but.... my phone updates automatically so when i got the update i didn’t realize until later. Then the game started glitching so i closed my phone and let it restart, the next day MY PROGRESS RESTARTED i read the update fixes and apparently the update was supposed to prevent this from happening. I was originally on level 79 and played all 3 tiers but then all of a sudden I’m on level 50 and each level I’ve only played 1 tier? Like wth it took me so long to get to level 79 and play all 3 tiers and now I’m down 29 levels and all on tier 1? What’s strange is my money and spoons didn’t change so its just my level progress. Overall this game is fun but just be careful, ur progress might glitch or something like it did with mine. I also got a package saying sorry for blah blah blah and saying it has fixed things well i hate to break it to you but it didn't fix anything, just yesterday my game was fine and now I’ve stopped playing cause I’ve given up.
Problem solved! 4/5
By Lt Mocha
Thank you so much for resolving the problem with the game so quickly, I’m back in business!!
I play this game a lot. But after the update my game is stuck in a stupid tutorial and I can’t get out of it. All my progress is gone. I hate this an am extremely disappointed by it.
After Rome forget it... 2/5
****Updated Review 02/16/2018****
The latest update, which was suppose to fix SOME gamer’s issue of losing their progress, did the complete opposite to me. I wasn’t one of the gamers who had a problem with losing their progress and because of this new update I have lost progress in all of the locations and all achievements. I have to basically start over to get back to where I was. I’m very unhappy and wish the developers would stop trying to fix what isn’t broken. For the ones who actually needed the fix I’m sure it solved your problem but it created a whole new one for me.
****Updated Review 02/14/2018****
My last review upgraded the game to 4 stars but after this last update it’s going back to 3. Below I’ve listed all the reasons why.
1: I think the cap on cupcakes is ridiculous and just another way to get money. Especially if you are a new player and have not saved up on cupcakes.
2: I’ve noticed that after I’ve completed a level that requires earning a certain amount of money and I replay the level you aren’t able to earn that amount unless you use boosts.
3: I play the dailies everyday to earn spoons and I’ve noticed they have gotten rid of some of the spoons in exchange for time boosts which are useless if given back to back. I’d rather have the spoons.
4: You use to be able to keep the coins you’ve earned if you failed a level but that too is gone.
5: The game freezes the moment I turn it on and I haven’t been able to play it since yesterday.
This recent update seems like an update focused on ways to gouge more money out of the players and I’m really upset because I love this game but I don’t see myself playing it for much longer.
****Updated Review 08/16/2017****
I've just completed the new location (Bangkok) and overall I enjoyed the game. So much so that I've even looked up the recipes for some of the dishes in Rio. I'm glad the developers actually listened to the reviews. I was able to finally get through Rio after the update and the game was still challenging but not impossible to win. So, I've updated my score from 3 stars to 4 stars.
However, I did find that I spent more real money on Rio and Bangkok buying spoons than on the previous three locations. Altogether I've spent about $30 in those two locations. Also, I'm still left with extra coins in the locations I've completed, which just feels wasteful. I think if the coins could be used to purchase spoons or hearts it would be better. For those two things I left off a star.
****Initial Review 07/31/2017****
Like everyone says the game is fun and addicting; I've really enjoyed playing it. I think I've only spent $6 IRL. It is doable to win the levels and upgrade without having to spend a lot of real money. I've upgraded every item to the max on the first three locations.
However, Rio is just insanely hard to beat. I think it's because of the cooking methods, which I think is a major flaw in the design. You have to cook the meat and the veggies on the same grill. Which means first I have to cook the meat, then when they're done put them on a plate, then cook the veggies, then put them on a plate because I can only add them to the meat by putting them on the plate first. By the time I have the meat and veggies done there are four more people each wanting three of the meat and veggies combo. There is no way to meet that demand. Each time I've ended up losing customers, losing thumbs up, and losing the combo bonus. I don't think any of the previous locations used the same cooking appliance to cook two separate things. In my opinion the meat and veggies should have separate grills.
Last thing to be aware of is that money earned in one location can not be transferred to others. I, like many players, have tons of coins just sitting in locations that I can't use. I get that countries use different currency but the extra coins just sitting around seems like a waste. I'm not sure if I'll keep playing but, until they fix the Rio location this game is just a 3 star for me.
Put the cupcakes back the way they were 4/5
Love this game but don’t know why u felt it necessary to limit the number cupcakes stored. Who in their infinite wisdom felt this was a needed change... please put it back the way it was.. u probably don’t bother to read users comments
Fun game, except for one little thing. 4/5
I had a wonderful fun time playing this game, the time management aspect was very stimulating for a mobile game, even on those levels that seemed (and maybe impossible without putting money into the game).
However, the 1.16.0 update completely ruined my progress. I was about midway through Rome and after the update I was back in New York, almost starting fresh. Re-downloading the restaurants AND all the upgrades AGAIN. But trying to play it again and the in game tips are trying to help on the extra shifts where they can’t help making it impossible to play the level as needed.
With the newest update 1.16.2 my progress has been mostly restored. I’m happy to be back in the city I left off in, even if I have to play most of the levels over again. I do enjoy the game quite a bit. I am happy to be back in this game! Thank you to the devs for the quick and speedy resolution to the problem!
Last update DESTROYED progress AND glitched!!!!! 1/5
This last update has completely destroyed this game!! All progress has been lost and it has created a MAJOR glitch right at the start of the game!!!!!!! 😡😡😡😡 right when you start and it’s walking you through the tutorial, it has you make a donut for a customer, and add chocolate. But the customer doesn’t want chocolate, so you’re just stuck!!!! You can’t move forward or trash the donut or pause or do ANYTHING!!!
In addition to the fact that I had progressed through 5 cities and ALL of my progress has been lost!! And you can’t contact their company for it because this game isn’t listed!! Ridiculous!! Please fix this major glitch and restore our progress back to where it actually was!!! 😭😭😭
It's good but not all that 5/5
I love this game so much it's just that why not give us more time to cook and serve the food, I mean I can cook fast but not that fast in 2 minutes. But what I was gonna say in the first place is, give us more time to cook please.
Won't work 2/5
Since the update this game won't
Stay open on my IPad. It crashes in the middle of the game.
Need more levels 3/5
Update review: changing my stars to 3 as the recent updates have spoiled the game for me.
1) my game got reset to level 1 after I had finished all the levels and was on the latest one. Very frustrating and annoying
2) game keeps freezing and then closing making me lose lives.
3) the new rules with respect to cupcake limits and not accumulating coins unless you win a level are crazy.
This was a fun game which has now been ruined for me.
Really like this game...Got addicted to it. And now I've finished Athens level as well. When are the new levels coming? Please add more soon.
Update: I installed the latest update, deleted the game and installed it again, however I am still stuck on the tutorial screen and not able to progress further.
Fun and addicting 5/5
This game is very fun and addicting, I’ll have it for awhile!🤩👍🏻👌🏻🤗
Please fix! 5/5
By seriously just add my comment
I updated to the new version last night and now I can’t play. It tells me to get my cupcakes in the circled area and when I do nothing happens and I can’t go any further. I need my cooking craze fix. Please help!
The game has now been fixed and I’m very grateful. All the coins, spoons and unlimited lives were a wonderful apology. Thanks for fixing the game in a timely fashion. Keep up the good work!
Get out now! 1/5
This game was so much fun at the start but it gets to the point where you will have to spend your own money to continue to play the game! So I am out!
لعبه حلوه 5/5

Here we go again (plus an update at the bottom) 4/5
By Dottie Vee
I enjoy this game but it seems every time there is an upgrade, there are more bugs than fixes.
Currently I am in Rio, but it started me back in New York. I do have all my coins (at least in NY) but because I have more than 25 cupcakes (a new “feature” on the second to last upgrade so the player’s cupcake is limited), I can’t even try to go to the game to see what the hell happened.
I’m sure the programmers are diligently working to fix the error, but I won’t hold my breath.
I downloaded this game because another game I had glitches. I haven’t played that one since. Maybe it’s time to do it again.
So they released an update via the App Store, and while I lost all my progress in Rio, I started Rio with 300,000 coin and 7 days of unlimited lives.
So I have to say, they are very responsive to issues and I’m updating the review to 4 stars, but only because my progress in Rio was lost. It is frustrating to start at level 1 when I was on level 80 or so.
No matter though, the bonus gift coins bought all the updrades immediately so it took me about 4 hours to get through level 50.
I like the game a lot. What I don’t like is when you’re cooking and serving up a storm and you look up and the game hasn’t given you any progress points!
Bye bye 1/5
My entire progress was just erased. Absolutely pathetic. Please fix this!!
Not Fun Anymore - Greedy 1/5
The latest 2 updates took all the fun out of this game. I would spend money every two weeks to get spoons because that was how much I enjoyed playing this game. It was an addiction. Now with the updates you don't win as much. They made the game much harder by limiting the number of cupcakes, with some levels you have to have combos to earn money (very hard when you are just starting a new country) and the fortune cookies now give infinite time for a few mins vs more coins or spoons. The Developers got greedy. My addiction is fading and with it will be the money I use to spend on this game. Too bad
The new update is horrible. The developers are trying to squeeze their customers for more money by capping the amount of cupcakes (basically the resupply for the health bar of the NPC customers) to 25 down from infinite number. Some of the levels are extremely difficult and capping the number makes it harder to complete those levels. This is just a transparent attempt to drive gamers to buy more of the freemium boosters. Ridiculous. Remove the cap. Now!
I used to like this game, but for some reasons it suddenly stopped working I cannot log into the game anymore and it’s pretty annoying considering the level I was on!
Still lost a HUGE amount of progress 1/5
I understand that mistakes happen and appreciate the rewards offered as compensation but losing all of my progress in Mexico (the city I was last working on) is simply unacceptable.
Cooking Craze 3/5
It takes way toooooo longgggg to load that makes me want to rate lower. It happens every other time I want to play.
This used to be my favorite game. 1/5
Ya know I really loved this game until I hit Tokyo in the 50s levels. They are IMPOSSIBLE to beat without a boost. It’s ridiculous. There is in no way, enough time to get enough dishes served or thumbs up. I loved this game because you didn’t have to buy so many boosts to play and now I can’t get past any of the levels because I don’t have enough spoons and I’m not willing to pay any more money than I have already for more boosts. This is ridiculous and your new food court section keeps trying to give me a tutorial on how to cook the meat and won’t let me get past it. Why does it teach me a fish that the customer doesn’t want so I can’t serve it and get out of the tutorial and move on? And then I end up losing a heart because I have to end the app and go back in.
All progress lost 1/5
I have been playing this for awhile and with this update today, the game froze so I deleted the app...now I’m back at square one! I was in the last restaurant in Bangkok. What happened to this game? It was fun before all of my stuff was erased 🤬
Too hard levels 3/5
Some levels are almost impossible to beat. You can’t even pay for quicker cool time and boosts costs too much
WTH is going on with this game 2/5
This is a game o have been playing for quite awhile and needless to say, I love it. I have spent a bit of money on it but I figure, I enjoy playing it so...! Well I’m. It so happy right now with this game. You guys fixed the glitch where the game would shut down and take a life from you when you never even got to play but he is a new glitch I am experiencing. I play a level and when time runs out or I run out of people the game just freezes and doesn’t give me the option to use my extra time or add more people or anything. It just freezes. Please fix ASAP! Is anyone else having this issue? I’m frustrated. Fix the problem and I’ll go and give the game the 5 stars I originally gave it.
Update (edited Feb 15) 1/5
Adding onto my review. I did the new update like you said and I’m still back where I was before the update. Lost 20 levels of progress and all progress/full upgrades made on all my stores. Update did not fix my problem.
Randomly found this game as an ad from another game and decided to download and loved it! I’ve played non-stop....until today. I updated the app this morning and went to go log in and it took over 10 minutes to install and download everything saved. And once I was finally able to get into the game, over 20 levels of saved progress was gone and all my upgrades on my restaurants weren’t there anymore!!! Really frustrating when I’ve put so much time and effort into this game for most of it to be deleted! FIX IT PLEASE!
Lost game 2/5
The app lost my saved game. They gave me a lot of coins and stuff to make up for it, but I was 5 levels from completing Paris and now I’m back at the beginning of Paris, which really hurts.. I don’t know if I’m gonna do it all over again now.. I want my levels back:(
Disappointed customer 3/5
By Not to happy a chef
You were a five star now I am real disappointed in your game. I didn't know you were having technical difficulties and I thought it was my device so I deleted game because it was froze on grab cupcakes and it would not even go past first eleven spaces and I just spent money on a booster pack. Also what is the ideal of limited the cupcakes I had over 200 at one time now you can only have 25! What's the fun in that you don't have any saved for a rainy day. Improve the game instead of making it worse!
Frustrating unless you want to spend a fortune 1/5
I really liked the game until you get to Paris and then you can I longer win anything as they make it where you never get enough customers to complete a level.
I like it this game keep going 💯 4/5
By Rahaf Saad
I really love this game 💙💙
But please next level Saudi Arabia 🇸🇦
And good luck ❤️
Worse with each update 2/5
By College Tea Drinker
I enjoy this game on and off, but with each update, things are really changing! Last week they changed how many of an item that helps you keep customers happy you could have, and with that update, it started randomly crashing. They tried to fix it this morning, except now where it used to crash, it keeps you stuck on a level you just finished or failed and you can interact with, but can’t actually move off this screen and play another level unless you exit, completely close it out, and then reload it! More and more bugs!
After last two updates, lost everything I can't even go past the beginning of a donut round. I can't even start over , it shows me how to to do a glazed choc. Donut but the guy wants a plain donut. Can't do anything help
APP IS NOT WORKING!!! 1/5
What kind of update have you guys done?? It wiped my whole game!!! I already updated again and it still did not restore!!! 😡😡 fix it!!
Updates the Week of February 12, 2018 1/5
After this week’s updates, all my progress has been lost and I even sign in with Facebook. What a disaster. I had completed all cities plus all 3 Levels for each challenge (just missing one in Shanghai). I also lost all my trophies. Extremely disappointing and am now unmotivated to play this game. If I could rate with zero stars, I would!
Beware of Updates! 1/5
Some suggestions: 1. When we earn infinite lives we should be able to use them whenever we want. Just like a boost. 2. We should be able to use spoons to purchase infinite lives. 3. The money we earn even after we have finished all the upgrades should benefit us some how. Even if we have to have a ridiculous amount. There should be a reason we want to continually go back to the other countries and do the bonus shifts. Maybe after we complete a country we can use that money to purchase spoons which we can use anywhere? That's just one idea. Having the money become meaningless after completing the upgrades and completing a country or is a definite flaw in an otherwise really fun game!
I downgraded it to a one star because with the new update they stole our cupcakes which I upgraded for apparently no reason now. I had saved spoons so I could get more cupcakes. You need these to finish some difficult levels. Upgrades should make the game better, not worse. This was a purely selfish move on their part. They did it to get people to spend more money. They have changed a vital part of the game for the worse so they can fill their greedy pockets. We can only have 25 cup cakes at a time now and that is a horrible way to treat your customers. Stealing things from them that they have earned instead of making it better and of course they made no mention of it in the update information. I do not know if I will continue to play. I can no longer trust the creators or their updates. Taking a break for now. Could become permanent.
Update two: The developer responded and said he hopes I will reach out to them by contacting them. I guess the right hand doesn’t know what the left hand is doing there because I have already been in contact with them and they said there was nothing they were going to do about the cupcakes but they could send me a few things if I gave them access to my game. Thanks but no thanks. Never give a thief the keys to your house. Just fix the bad update.
Soooo, I used to love this game. But guess what? I was on level 83, and one day I got on to the game and something had happened. I already had over 25 cupcakes because the game hadn't updated yet so it didn't matter. But then I got back on, I was told to get the cupcakes, but I couldn't because I was already over max. So I did but didn't want to delete the game😂 and I got back on a few minutes ago, and I saw I didn't have to get the cupcakes. Which is good, but the game moved me back 33 levels!!!!!!!! Still gonna play it though😂
What happened?! 3/5
I loved this game! Would have given it a 5 star but the update erased my progress now I have to start all over?
I’ve only been playing this game a few weeks, and it’s very enjoyable. I’ve always been a fan of quick paced cooking games like this so I’m glad I found it. My biggest frustration with it is that even using boosts, you don’t always get the comment card to open new levels. For example, I used the double money booster on a level because the goal was to earn 1400 coins. I earned 1650/1400 and I still didn’t get the comment card. I guess I just don’t understand why if you pass the level to that degree, you still don’t pass the level...? Also, there are levels I’ve played that requires you to earn a large amount of coins and even with all of my foods at the highest upgrades, I don’t even come close to getting the amount needed. What’s the point of requiring that many earned coins if you won’t supply the proper upgrades to pass it. I’ve never spent money on a game app and I don’t plan on starting anytime soon, so sorry, you’re not getting my money to buy boosts and spoons. Anyway, if that were to get fixed, it’d be a perfect 5 stars for me.
I’ve lost all my 3 stars after updating!!! 1/5
Fix it or I’ll delete it !!
Enjoyed until...... 4/5
Loved this game, played every day, but since the last update cannot get past the first screen. Wants me to accept cupcakes but I cannot because I have too many, but cannot get out of the screen to play anymore. Hope this will be fixed soon. If not I will have to delete the game, but since I am pretty far hope that is not the case
Update of update does not work 1/5
By no bueno update
Game still starts from the very first restaurant of the very first location. And I’m unable to get past serving the first donut. It forces me to frost and serve when it’s not what was ordered. Can’t get past that screen at all. Need a new update.
