If you do a search in the Google Play Store or iOS App Store for "cooking games" or "restaurant games" you're likely to find thousands of games to download. It's hard to know which are the actual good, in-depth games, and which are the duds that you'll only play for a few minutes.

I have always loved cooking and restaurant management sim games, and I have so many of them on my tablet. Over the years, I think I've founds some of the absolute best restaurant and cooking games on the app stores!

Here's my list of the Best Restaurant and Cooking Games for your mobile devices!

Food Street

Food Street is a restaurant simulation/management game. The game allows you to design and decorate your own restaurant, purchase cooking stations, plant vegetables, cook, complete customer orders, and more!

I've played this game for years, and I love it! I really enjoy the seasonal events they run with special foods and orders. There's lots of foods to cook and plenty of orders to fill to keep you busy.

World Chef

World Chef is another restaurant simulation/management game. Again, you can set up and decorate your own restaurant. As its title suggest, you can cook cuisine from all over the world; from hamburgers, to Mexican food, to Italian and Chinese food. Buy cooking stations, decorate your restaurant with international-themed decor, fulfil to-go orders and seat guests, and impress VIP visitors who come by to eat.

This is another great game that I've played for years! I love the to-go order feature, and the different cuisines you can cook. Being able to "cook" anything from pizza to sushi and tacos gives this game a fun and unique spin to it.

Bakery Story 2

Bakery Story 2 puts you in the shows of a baker who is running their very own bakery. Turn the quaint little shop into a bustling business; level up to unlock more stations and craft/cooking stations, sell a huge variety of baked goods- everything from cookies, to pies and cakes, decorate your bakery with tables, chairs and other furniture, and keep your customers happy!

I've loved this game for so long! The artwork is bright and cute and I love the design of the game. The gameplay mechanics are also pretty fun too; I love cooking different baked goods and fulfilling orders.

I also recommend checking out the Restaurant Story 2 game (made by the same developers), which has similar gameplay, except you sell more than just baked goods.

My Cafe: Recipes & Stories

My Cafe: Recipes and Stories is a unique twist on the traditional restaurant simulation/management game. While the game allows you to design your own cafe, sell various coffees and treats, and manage staff, there's also a choose-your-own-path element and a storyline which you can follow by speaking with customers of the town your cafe is located in.

This game is a lot of fun; if you like choose-your-own-path stories, the stories in this game are pretty engaging and worth following, and the restaurant management/simulation side of the game is full and fun as well.

Chef's Quest

Chef's Quest is one of the best free restaurant and cooking games on iOS and Android.

Chef's Quest is a mix of Match-3 and restaurant management. The main game play revolves around completing Match-3/Bejeweled-style puzzles and collecting ingredients for your restaurant. After you complete each level, you unlock the ability to decorate and design your own restaurant. Celebrities can visit your restaurant for bonus points and you can unlock dozens of unique pieces of decor to design with.

I really enjoyed the fact that this game is a mix of genres. The Match-3 part of it is pretty fun and just the right amount of challenging, and of course, designing my own restaurant is a ton of fun!

Diner Dash

If you're a fan of restaurant management games, you're probably already familiar with the Diner Dash game series. The Diner Dash mobile game acts as a bit of a port of the original PC game; you have to seat diners, deliver food to their tables, give them their checks, clean up after them and get a high score to unlock the next level.

The Diner Dash games are better on PC, but the mobile version is pretty fun too! It's a tradition restaurant time-management game that you'll have tons of fun playing. I also recommend the spin-off, Restaurant Dash: Gordon Ramsay, which has similar gameplay but stars Gordon Ramsay (and has his real voice in-game!) instead of Flo!

"Delicious" Games

The Delicious game series is another time-management game that was originally made for PC and Mac but have been ported to mobile devices. Unfortunately, they are not free (most games are about $9.99 AUD), but they are well worth buying and playing in my opinion!

The Delicious games put you in the shoes of Emily, a cook/waitress who runs her own restaurant. It's up to you seat guests, cook meals as they're ordered, serve patrons, clean tables and more. The games take place in various locations and various stages of Emily's life and have an overarching story line and reappearing characters that you'll be addicted to!

"Papa's" Games

The "Papa's" game series are some of the best free restaurant and cooking games on iOS and Android.
The "Papa's" game series are some of the best free restaurant and cooking games on iOS and Android.

The "Papa" game series started off as a web-based game, but now they're available for purchase on iOS or Android. You play as a new employee at Papa's restaurant- selling either pizza, burgers, tacos, ice cream, sundaes, hot dogs, wings or pancakes- depending on which version of the game you buy. Quickly make and serve food, upgrade your machines and restaurant, gain tips, and excel in the business.

I've always loved these games, and it's great to have a mobile version of them. They're pretty cheap (only $1.99 AUD for the non-HD versions) and are a faithful reproduction of the original web-based games. It's lots of fun making pizzas, cooking wings, scooping ice cream, etc. and serving them to the wacky and impatient customers.
