Not happy 1/5
I have all of the restaurants and was happy to have Hell’s kitchen as an addition. However I’m considering not playing anymore because I can’t access any of my restaurants without being connected to WiFi and with my line of work and other activities I am not always around WiFi when I have the desire to play. Im not not happy with this update at all
Fun game, but a ripoff 2/5
By Player 2536
I'll be honest and say I have never made an in-app purchase (though I have purchased apps). But I looked at the price of coins and gems. You can buy 8000 coins for $3 or 35 gems for the same amount. I played the casino with 8000+ coins and didn't win ANY gems. I was playing with the 200 coin button, so I rolled 40+ times and only won a few coins back. It seems logical that if the real money value for 8000 coins and 35 gems is the same, using eight thousand coins in the slot machine should get you, if not a similar amount, at least half the amount or so. I get stuck on levels I can't beat without upgrading and I can't upgrade without gems so I play the same dang levels over and over again for coins to try to win gems and spend tens of thousands of coins to get anything. It's extremely frustrating and unfair. As other users have noted, I've never gotten triple coins or triple gems or even double gems. Even if someone doesn't want to spend money, they should get more than max 15 gems a day with their hard-earned in-game coins. :-(
Greedy developers 1/5
As said many times in other reviews, this game is ridiculous. Yes the graphics are great and the game is fun, but it's nearly IMPOSSIBLE to get gems without dropping some serious real life cash. I know most games operate this way, gotta make their money somehow. But this level of greed is ridiculous and makes the game not fun to play anymore. Without gems you can't really do much. Totally promising game I would play every day if it weren't for that. I will be moving on to another game made by more reasonable people.
Awesome game 5/5
I’m addicted to these cooking games!
Money Grab 1/5
Have to agree with everyone else. Game is entertaining until you have to play the same level 75 times to earn enough XP to get the diamonds required to buy half a product upgrade. Many other games offer a much better balance. #delete
Money Hungry 1/5
By Robbie Rage
Update: just opted to do my first challenge...used my gems to enter...and guess what...the only way you're going to pass is if you have the diamonds to buy the desserts! Doesn't matter how fast or skilled you are it's all about gems! I'm uninstalling and done with this game!
This game is fun till you start needing gems. You get 2 for daily check in, 15 twice a day if you're lucky and time it right morning and night, then 7 for leveling up which is a process. 39 gems technically in a day if you play occasionally more if you don't get off of it that would be good for a level unlock, upgrading two maybe three things that will get you 3 stars through maybe 4 levels. It's a cash hungry game that they want you to spend on gems! The slot machine is a rig and offers no alternative other than 15 gems twice a day...again if you time it right. No incentives to buy gems with the massive amount of coins you'll sit on trying to level up. I'm about done with this game. Not to mention absolutely no reward for completing a restaurant with 3 stars throughout!
Super sad 1/5
I love this game don't get me wrong but as of a few days ago both me and my boyfriend have been experiencing a problem with the game.. it keeps telling us that we have a connection error but yet we have perfect connection through our phone service.. I was on a 182 day login streak and when I went to check in a play the new update I couldn't because it keeps giving us the same error.. what can we Or you do to fix it so we may continue to play
Really addicting! 5/5
It's a really fun and addicting game! The best part is it doesn't need wifi so if you don't have a connection you're fine!
Trouble getting on 1/5
I updated my game now I can't get on 😒 keeps saying can't connect to internet...help
I'm came from bid win to get big bucks
Too many glitches 1/5
I like this game. Due to my consecutive play, I enjoy receiving 2 free gems daily. My consecutive play will be interrupted due to an error glitch that won’t allow me to play. I have contacted the developer but highly doubt my issue will be resolved before my next scheduled free gem delivery. Smh!
Cooking fever 5/5
FUN AND ADDICTIVE!!!!! I LUV IT SOOOO MUCH!!!!
Nordcurrent has been ignoring my email for weeks 1/5
I spent a bunch of money on gems. Bought a location and made upgrades. The next time I opened the app it was all gone. This is theft!
UPDATE-CAN NO LONGER PLAY OFFLINE 1/5
By no offline 4u
If you download the latest update you will not be able to play unless you are online. Played every day on iPad now it is USELESS! If you know a similar game please share it. I really enjoyed this game but have no internet connection where I play it.
Ridiculous in a bad way 1/5
The more I play this the more mad I get. It's totally unfulfilling. You should give us more of a choice to pay for gems rather than basically forcing us to spend real money to play this game. Others have said you can get 15 gems a day by playing the slots, but I have spun over 100 times and only got 2 gems. Seriously so boring. I like the idea of this game, but I am so close to deleting it and making sure not to download anymore games from this company. I am hope someone else will make this game, but better than this one.
Love this game, but.... 1/5
By Beth 07
I love playing this game, but the fact that you have to have soooo many gems to advance is ridiculous!!! Definitely need to be more opportunities or ways to earn gems without spending a fortune. I would love to play more, but be sides checking in daily for the 2 measly gems I can’t play as much because I can’t win without gems! Please fix!!
Love this game but... 5/5
By Little one 710
With the new update in September 2017 my game fails to load so many times. I've never seen this window about weak or low internet, that includes a button to retry, but it never works. I've had to delete and re-download the app 3 times so far. Thank God my progress was saved from the cloud. Please fix!!
Worst update 1/5
Since this update it's been acting stupid. Saying I don't have internet access when I'm not on wifi ... it's annoying please fix this !
I can no longer play since last update. It says I have a bad internet connection and I do not have a bad internet connection. Please fix or I'm uninstalling.
Swiper no swiping 1/5
I check in daily to receive the coin and gem bonus... but it takes forever to acquire enough gems to even level something up! Besides spending your gems on the kitchen upgrades you also have to spend them on decorations for your restaurant if you want the possibility to get more than 1 star. The casino eats up a good amount of the coins you earn if you decide to "gamble"... more like lose. There are pictures of 2-3 gems on the slots but that looks like it's there for decorative purposes. Not me, not you... no one who plays this game will ever win those 3 gems... just ask, lol.
As you can see from the hundreds of reviews, the game is really fun... When you've saved enough gems to upgrade something to make that level more bearable but only for that level! Then you're back to playing previous levels just to save enough to play in the casino or to level up.
The developer obviously sees the gem complaints by everyone but does nothing to remedy the situation except for "join the Facebook page" and use the casino 😒
If you want to torture yourself this game is perfect for that.
Be ready to pay to play or progress will come to a complete halt. Good game otherwise.
New update issues 4/5
Love the game, but now it won't open!!! Please help
Ok BUT 3/5
I really like playing this game but the gems are SO EXPENSIVE. I'm still on a lower level so it's not a big deal quite yet, but there is no way I'll keep playing when the gems become truly necessary to move on.
Addicted Boredom 3/5
Fun when you are challenging new meals. Unfortunately you have to pay for these moments with lots of cash or lots of repeat boredom.
Love it! Besides one thing. 4/5
Completely love this game! It's addicting and all I'm trying to do is get everything 100% done. But I feel like I get ripped off at the casino. Which isn't too bad since that's what the casino is for. Lol am I right? But I feel like hitting the jackpot is impossible. I alway get the lower prizes and I play the max (500 coins) every time. I never win the 3gems jackpot or the double gem jackpot and same for the coins too. Especially if Restaurants, appliances and furniture is kinda pricey give us more of a chance to win in the casino for us to upgrade a few things here and there. Not like all the time but now and then isn't bad either.
Size matters!!!! 5/5
While I love this app!! I feel like everything is super tiny! Sometimes I grab the wrong food item due to everything being so small!! Other than that I can't complain.
Speech less, games awesome just hope y'all would add touch mode so we don't have to drag all the objects
Won't let me play unless connected to wifi 2/5
After the last update, I was no longer able to play. It keeps telling me unable to connect to the internet or connection is poor. Everything else on my phone, that requires internet, works just fine. Is this a new thing were I need wifi?
Please fix the game 1/5
Simple but entertaining i do like this game, however the game stopped working in my phone, apparently is having problems connecting to the internet, obviously my phone does have internet because im writing this review in it.
I’ll change the review when the game get fixed
Great game 5/5
Just have to b patient with it
Cooking fever 👎👎 1/5
By Cooking Fever rigged
This game is rigged. The coin requirement for the level was 580 and I got 880 coins but I only got two stars. I recommend not to get this game because it is bad.
Shouldn't have updated! 5/5
By Gsus chic
Edited review: Since the update I have learned that it will only connect if connected to wifi, it will not connect with my data. Hopefully this will be fixed soon.
Previous review: I updated and now it is not working. Says not connecting to internet. Read the other reviews and I'm not the only person this has happened to.
Five stars though cause when it is working the game is great and fun to play!
Evidently the developers don't want to fix the problem with getting gems and don't care about all of us who play this game so maybe we all just need to delete it!
New update 9/19 causing an issue 2/5
I just received the Hells Kitchen update and my game isn't connecting outside of wifi. My cellular data is turned on (as it has always been) for this game but I keep getting the below error when I open the app.
I love cooking fever and I have been playing this game for a long. I just updated it and now it's saying that I have to be connected to internet to play it and I have service on my phone so why is it not letting me play. It did before the last update. Please do something about it.
Omg don't update it!!! I keep having to delete it and download again cause error keeps popping up about having problems with internet but I do have internet and all my other apps work fine and safari works perfectly too!!
How do you save all the progress i have done if im getting a new phone?
Fun game...addictive...but stalls after a certain point 3/5
UPDATE: To the Developer responding to reviews: There are not enough gems given in the "free" daily checkins and level ups to cover the cost of upgrading equipment and unlocking restaurants in a reasonable time frame. So your statement is invalid. You DO need to pay if you want to continue playing and advancing through the levels. Who wants to check in for a month just to get enough gems to pass a level?! By that time you're over it.
Love the game! It's def addicting as you want to beat the timer and make all your customers happy [more tips ;)]. As levels progress, it becomes more and more challenging, which can be rewarding when you pass a hard level. But as previous reviews mentioned, after playing for a while and getting past certain checkpoints, the game stalls because you do not have enough gems to buy the upgrades needed to pass a level, let alone even try to get 3 stars.
After passing all levels on my first 3 restaurants, I could not continue due to a lack of gems. And to address the developer's response regarding daily gem giveaways, I've been playing consistently since downloading the game a few weeks ago and you only get 2 gems per day and need at least 20-50 to unlock restaurants and that doesn't even include the gems needed to upgrade your equipment and food to even meet the minimum to pass levels. You're forced to pay if you want enough to succeed in the game and do not get enough bang for your buck. I'm stuck playing the same levels over and over again because I can't progress without buying gems. (On the bright side, I have 3 stars in every level of 3 diff restaurants) RECOMMENDATION: Download if you want to have fun for a bit. And then put the game down when you've exhausted your gem earning abilities. It's not worth dropping money on. Enjoy it while it lasts.
Doesn't work since update HELLPP 1/5

Support code 0
Not working!! 1/5
I have restarted and done everything and it keeps saying no network connection. Should of never updated this game. It's been 24hrs and still not able to play. Now it won't let me play unless I'm connected to WIFI. seriously this game needs to be fixed!!!
Deleting - too hard to get gems! 1/5
Enough said.... read previous reviews and do something about it, or choose to argue and have everyone quit playing! Deleting from my iPad.
Make gems more attainable 1/5
The gem situation is ridiculous. It would take MONTHS to acquire enough gems to purchase businesses and unlock needed items. I don't mind building up tons of money and using a gem or two to unlock these things, but 20 gems for a pan is ridiculous. I won't be playing this game much longer.
I love this game but.... 3/5
GIVE US MORE OPPORTUNITIES TO WIN GEMS! I’m tired of wasting coins on the casino. Like it’s sometimes IMPOSSIBLE to get gems at the casino because you can barely even win them & I’d be wasting 100-500 coins trying to get a 3 in a row of gems. Leveling up and the daily process is also a joke because it barely gives you any as well. Leveling up gives you 7 and the daily process gives you 2. Like what the heck? Can’t you do what Cooking Craze does? They give free “spoons” after completing each level so why can’t you do the same by giving us gems? It’s so unfair how we have to pay money or spend all our coins at the casino if we want more gems. Ridiculous. I’m so close to uninstalling this game.
Game time 5/5
Very fun and entertaining
Extremely addiction but glitches+gems 3/5
By Zp.io checking in..
I absolutely love this game but I really think they should make the gems needed much less- considering you only get about 2 gems per day, yet everything costs 20-50 gems to upgrade.
Also, there is a glitch in Hell's Kitchen. The book Choy won't go on the same plate as the noodles, so I can't get any farther.
It's a great game but it would be much better if it were cheaper. If it continues this way I might have to count my losses and lose this app.
Ever since I upgraded the game I can't play 😕
Game is so fun but to money hungry it's like if you don't pay for gems you can't even pass some of the levels and your stuck playing it over and over and it makes me not want to even play the game no more.
Great Game! 5/5
By Shauna Licious
Easy to play & Very addictive! The foot looks so real it'll make you hungry!
Has potential but... 2/5
By Forman millssssss
It's way too hard to get gems. It's literally impossible to earn gems to open new restaurants and to keep using them for cupcakes. How do they expect us to do anything if everything cost gems but we can't earn them? Only reasonable way to get gems is buying them,which I refuse to do. This is really a good game with some flaws.
