“Along with being one of the (very unexpectedly!) funniest games I’ve played this year, the game’s disarming & charming aesthetic did not prepare me for what is undoubtedly the best WarioWare-like game I have ever played. In fact, I probably ended up spending more time with Cook, Serve, Delicious! than with almost any other game this year. The gameplay is simple in nature but blisteringly fast, resulting in a challenge that is more than enough to keep the average player interested. The game does not overstay its welcome, as it evolves in numerous ingenious ways by the time you’ve reached the end.”
The Stereogram

“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.”
Jay Is Games

“Cook, Serve, Delicious! is fast paced, engaging, and absolutely addictive for foodies or non-foodies alike. Don’t be fooled by the cute cartoonish style because you’ll find your eyeballs popping and button mashing like mad after a few hours.”
Vivid Gamer

Cook, Serve, Delicious is a hardcore 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, you’ll 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 weren’t enough, you’ll 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 (nearly 500 emails in all), from customers providing feedback to your restaurant to opportunities such as 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 who’s ready to take their crumbling, rat infested eatery to a luxurious Platinum Star Restaurant. Good luck!

  • New Steam Features include key binding support for all foods and events, a new gameplay option called CookBets where you will receive randomized challenges each day, fifty new spam emails and options as well as improvements to UI across the board, and full Steam Achievements, Steam Cloud, Steam Leaderboards with special Steam Challenges and Trading Cards support.
  • Includes the upgrade pack, "Extra Crispy Edition," that brings ten new foods to the game including Lobster, Bananas Foster, Enchiladas, Sushi and more!
  • Steam Controller, DualShock 4, Xbox 360, Wii U Pro Controller, DualShock 3 and Xbox One gamepad button mapping fully supported for compatible controllers. Rumble is also supported (for Windows only). (Note: first and third party drivers still required for full compatibility. For a full detailed list, be sure to check out the Steam thread: )

  • Art by Sara Gross - Two Bit Art (Battle Kitchen art by Camille Kuo)

First, I wanted to say that this game surprised me. When I got this game I assumed that it was a typical restaurant/serving game. The artwork is actually kinda beautiful. I love how the characters look, the food looks good, and the scenery that you see outside your window doesn't lose luster. The gameplay manages to avoid being repetive and also offers different challenges that will keep you on your toes. I have not had a problem with this game, but something to ntoe is that I have never played multiplayer so I do not know how that works.

TLDR: Game looks great, is fun to play, and has a lot of aspects that prevent boredom.

Doing menial tasks repeatedly over and over for hours upon hours was never more fun. It looks like a little casual title, but it is way more than that. It is excruciatingly challenging late game, requires lots of memorization and quick reflexes as well as on the fly tactical thinking.

It's much much more than it appears to be. Spent way more time playing this than I thought I would.

Best zombie... er, restaurant apocalypse sim ever.

At first glance, it looks like a charming and relaxing little casual game... but deep in it's black heart beats the war drum of frenetic madness. You, and you alone, must run this restaurant for impatient perfectionists... cooking, doing all the chores, and serving the evil legions of the damned from hell er, hungry customers... and they just keep coming! You are Earths last hope... or at least the only place to eat in the building. The only relief to be found is at closing time... but there is always tomorrow.

Can be very frustrating, and strangely addictive. No relaxation to be found here.

Worse, you can neither die nor kill anyone... truly cooking in hell. I love it, yet hate it at the same time.

Your order is up! Go, go, go!

I enjoy cooking irl and I often play flash cooking games online. But this game makes me wanna set my computer on fire and kill myself. I thought I was gonna have fun and kill time with it. I got nothing but panic attacks!
Let me put it this way. You basically have to take control of EVERY SINGLE CHORE in the restaurant! EVERY. SINGLE. CHORE! Take orders, cook, serve, do the dishes, take the trash out, set traps for rats, stop burglers, take selfies with people, go on dates. Not to mention the stress in rush hours while an inspector is watching you, so you try your best not to miss a single chore. All while cooking for impatient ungrateful ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s who don't even flush the toilet, so I have to do that too!
This game will hurt you mentally, physically and emotionally. Because as cute and yummy as the the food will look, you will hate every single person who makes an order. Because while you finish making a fun delicious burger. You've probably missed or burned at least 4 other orders and also hurt your arm or broke a finger, from mashing every single button as fast as you can. This makes Hell's Kitchen look like a fairy land.
But despite all that, it's so addicting and surprisingly fun. The kind of game you will keep going back to, even for just 5 minutes to see if you can do better, which you won't!
