Customer Reviews


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)

Kitchen Confidential

"If someone were to make a video game out of my book, Kitchen Confidential, it would be this game. This piece of digital masterwork has recreated the feeling you get working in all the great kitchens of the world. Per Se, The French Laundry, Le Bernardin and yes, even the gone but far from forgotten, El Bulli. This game has it all. If you want to know what it is to be a chef, or at least think like one, this is the game for you." - Anthony Bourdain, Author, Chef, TV Personality.


Fun and odd little game. I'm enjoying it. If you like restaurant and time management games thus is great. It's more on the level of being a boss of your own restaurants. It's fun learning how to play. It's mysterious as of now. Creating new dishes and searching forests for treasure. Like I said. Strange. But I like it. Can't put it down for long!! I think the price has been lowered too. Last time I looked it was 6.99 I think. Now it's 3.99. Fine by me!! It's just a little hard to figure out or I would've given it 5 stars. :)
