This game is very enjoyable and I got addicted fast. Like many other games you have a usual coin currency and then a special ruby currency. You need rubies to upgrade ingredients and appliances which isn’t a problem at first because they are relatively easy to come by when you first start. Now it’s still possible to get rubies but it takes a lot of time (unless you’re willing to throw some money at the game) and the amount of rubies rewarded doesn’t feel worth the task given for the amount of time and levels you’d have to play to get them (like serving 1150 plates of one dish for 5 rubies). Also I don’t understand why the coin currency changed when you make it to the next map. Now I’m not using the original coins for anything but still collecting revenue from those restaurants. I suggest an option to be able to exchange coins for rubies, that way the coins don’t go to waste as I’m not using the ones from the first map and I’ve already gotten more than enough in the second one. The only thing I’m falling short on in this game is rubies which is frustrating when you need them for all of the upgrades, especially when the next restaurant requires more coins and rubies for upgrades. The amount of coins you earn increases but the rubies adversely become harder to obtain. At the least I would like if the ruby rewards were higher and/or the ruby requirements for upgrades were lowered.

When I first opened this game, I thought, holy moly there’s A LOT going on. The screen scrolls back and forth between your ‘kitchen’ where you play levels, and the ‘restaurant’ where you can watch the customers eating the food you just made. Both screens are bordered all the way around with icons. There’re the stories, 3 kinds of currency, food truck levels, guilds, pets, your closet, etc. etc. etc. I thought it would be overwhelming. But when I actually played it a while, I got hooked.
If you read a few reviews, you notice the word constantly used to describe this game is “addicting”. What is it about this game that is so addictive?! Some algorithm in the gameplay that choreographs the perfect timing of customers, dishes, leveling up; that lets you whoosh through levels at jet speed? The amazing number of restaurants filled with great art and colorful dishes to prepare? The special competitions and tournaments that give a constant incentive to win? The social aspect of chatting with your guild members? I don’t know, but it is, it so really, really is. It’s so addictive I’ve pretty much given up all my others games just for this one. It’s so addictive I have happily spent money on IAP’s (which I almost never do) and felt it was totally worth it. They obviously put a lot of love into this game. It makes me happy, and it’s fun.
Ridiculous ruby amounts
I love this game. It’s very addicting but they are many setbacks and even changes that are not ideal. Rubies are getting harder to come by! We get 2 rubies every so often in the truck levels, but a suggestion is to maybe allow 1 ruby every truck level instead. They are also winnable after finishing a story (20 rubies), but we need those rubies to be able to finish the story. We can also win them in the achievements but having to serve, for example, 2400 snacks in the Particles of Taste restaurant is ridiculous for only 5 rubies. This should at least be worth 10 or 15. I get it sometimes since snacks and drinks can be served more often than the main dishes, but that is a lot for less rubies. And the currency differences are a little ridiculous too. Since we get to a point where we’re not updating restaurants in a city anymore, what’s the point of still having free coins regenerate every 4 hours. It’s really a waste and would be more useful to be able to trade in for rubies. Like I have almost 900,000 coins in one city and haven’t really used them. One last thing is the update on certain updates in restaurants where, for example, we need 5 rubies to get a certain wall design or curtain design now. We already need too many rubies for restaurant updates and this is just too much. It’s not reasonable. I understand needing to up some stuff up for players to buy in-app purchases in order to make money from this app, but there’s a better way about it.
