Customer Reviews


Although I love every Kairosoft game I have played, there is something incredibly charming about running your own restaurant business and assigning staff, pleasing customers, and developing new dishes. While there isn't as much to do actively in this game as some others (obviously there's no battle system or anything, and you can't directly control your staff), this game has an excellent aesthetic that tops many of their other games.

My only complaint is that some of the news text posts have two lines that run together--an oddly common bug in their games.


Ignore the bad reviews. This is the only Kairosoft game so far that let's you make three of your business on each file. You do have to just sit and watch every now and then. But it's not bad, it's GOOD. Watching your restaurants come to life is AWESOME. You see the waiter take the order, the chef cook, and the people eat. Whoever doesn't find that interesting is impatient and not imaginative at all. (Warning: Don't move your restaurants too quickly or else you will miss hidden surprises later on)

Play one of the others

I own all the games this company makes and this one is by far my least favorite. I'm all for time consuming games and I love replaying them! But this one gives no clear instructions, I feel like I'm just watching the game play out w no interaction from myself. My cafeterias keep going up in rank, but I have no idea why or how I can help it out. Making the food is just annoying as there is no instruction for how to make the dishes get the points they need, you just have to guess and wait 3 game months to learn that it didn't work. If you're new to this game maker, play the mall one first, or the hot springs, not this one.
