One of the few hardcore restaurant sims in existence, Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a deceptively easy game to learn but incredibly challenging to master as you progress through your career from owning a terrible zero star cafe into a five star world famous restaurant.

"CSD is an insanely frantic game about running a restaurant that's super addictive. One of the most underrated games to come out in the past few years."

“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.”

About This Game





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!
  • DualShock 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One gamepad fully supported. Rumble is also supported (for Windows only).
  • Music by award winning composer Jonathan Geer
  • Art by Sara Gross - Two Bit Art

+ a nice and original idea implemented well, the only other restaurant sim game i can remember is restaurant empire 1+2
+ seems like a casual game , but has enough depth in gameplay to keep you interested, you choose the daily menu, upgrade staff that help doing the job faster and more efficiency, you accept daily challenges, there are a lot of things happening
+ good progression of the story, becoming more difficult every day, good length for this type of game
+ good controls, either clicking with mouse or pressing the right keybort button

- very basic presentation, could use more polish in the graphics department
- you dont create the recipes, they are just there to choose, something that is the most important and satisfying aspect of gameplay in restaurant empire games
- restaurant empire is much better if you want the best game in the genre

I find myself weary of the middle-aged man who orders beer at 9:30 every morning and judging the hipster snobs who decide to order salad with everything on it during rush hour. Fun and addictive little game!

A simple yet addicting experience worth trying out. Bravo to the developers for ensuring that every food item has just enough differences to make it feel like a new experience. The fun really doesn't stop once you've reached five stars with plenty of unlocks and extra activities to play around and unlock.

At first I was a bit ambivalent on this game. It's super well designed and a lot of fun, but the keyboard controls were a bit rough for me. But then the controller support patch hit and it basically became a brand new game. I can now wholeheartedly recommend it to anyone who likes fun. An absolutely wonderful game.

This game is bimodal. In one mode, you're strategically figuring out how to balance out your menu to minimax revenue vs hassles/mistakes, or meet other secondary goals. You linger over the "Upgrade" button on a dish, knowing that you need the higher revenue per plate, but not being sure if you want to invest the money or if you're ready for the added complexity an upgraded dish sometimes entails.

Once you're done with that, you enter the other mode, starting your day cooking. With a single typo you can send a plate of completely uncooked fish to a customer, or slop a bunch of ingredients on a pizza that totally do not belong there. The feeling when you do this in the middle of a giant dinner rush, when you're totally in the weeds, is unsettling. And then you need to take out the trash.

This makes the feeling when you complete a goal or finish a perfect day that much better. A+.

Also, I will totally 180 noscope ace you on salads. 1v1 me.

"Your food is just meh. I might come back, dunno"
SherriSoda Tower worker (God damn you!)

A great game, that gives you everything that it promises. It is casual, very grindy, very addictive and it is really funny. It is both simple and hardcore X) You start with 0 star restaurant and in couple hours you know every hobo that comes to drink beer to your place at 9 am. It is incredible funny to play with your family, sitting nearby, watching your poor restaurant management. To give names to all the visitors, to invent their biography, and to comment their choices like "Omg lady it's you again and you want more ice cream?! you already ordered 3 scoops of ice cream in the morning, you won't fool anyone here by changing your clothes".
So you work your way to 5 stars and posh ladies, ordering wine and lobster. Both music and art style are lovely, food is drawn yummy and appetizing, and it makes you want to cook it in real life. Side missions like dating, vip guests, robbery and hardcore catering\iron cook events gives you healthy dose of fun and competitive expirience.
I recommend it to people who admit existence of their inner child, who understand that it is just a very cute&casual simulator, who are curious enough to read all the spam letters and food description, and who will addictively push wrong buttons while cooking the most horrible soup in the universe.
