Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a series of three games where you run a restaurant. You have full control over how you improve your restaurant and what food or drink you want to sell. Each game plays in a similar way, adding new locations, challenges and modes.

The aim of the game is to serve as many people as possible as quickly as you can, cooking and putting together the ingredients to finish their dish. In addition to serving the food within the time limits, you also have to maintain your restaurant by cleaning and taking out rubbish to keep your customers happy. You earn more money the faster that you complete the orders so then you can afford more upgrades and new foods to serve.

The upgrades include increasing the quality of the food, improving the appearance of the restaurant, or buy different services that will speed up your cooking or chores. The different types of foods and drinks you choose each have positive and negative effects on your business. For example, you will get fewer tips for certain foods or you might get a tip bonus from others.

Cook, Serve, Delicious! is played either by clicking or tapping on the ingredients and actions or using the keys on your keyboard which are assigned to each option during the order. This means that when building up the recipe or order, you can rapidly click the different options and get the food to the customer quicker.

Unlike most cooking games, Cook, Serve, Delicious! allows you to have control over your restaurant as a business and involves carrying out tasks, such as emptying the bins, as well as completing the orders. The game encourages you to think logically about which is the best path to take and what sacrifices you can afford to make to achieve five stars at your restaurant.
