Cooking Fever - Hell's Kitchen Restaurant Strategy Overview

Cooking Fever's Hell's Kitchen restaurant is located in the City and serves fine cuisine to impatient customers.  This restaurant's upgrades are a little different from the others; upgrades are less expensive in both coins and gems.  An Automatic Tuna Cooker becomes available later in the game, which makes it easier to multitask.  We were definitely expecting the restaurant to have steak and risotto like the TV show with perhaps a twist such as customer happiness based on how well it was cooked.  And maybe a cameo from Gordon himself?  Instead, we're cooking Pan Seared Tuna coated in Sesame Seeds with sides such as Bok Choy, Noodles and Eggs and serving them to customers who are a little more grumpy than usual.

See the Strategy and Upgrade Tips at the bottom of this page for more insider tricks to passing levels.

Level Guide

Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy. 

Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering.  After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items.  A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.

First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts.  There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.

Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level.  Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered.  Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.

Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.    This includes upgrade strategy recommendations.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips

  • Continually click on your Carmelized Carrot machine throughout the level so that it is always refilling.  Keep it fully stocked at all times and click on it even when its already full.  It doesn't refill itself automatically like the Tea Dispenser.
  • Because customers start off being very impatient, begin upgrading your Interior items early.  The Menu, Juice Bar and Aquarium should be upgraded as soon as possible to increase customer waiting time.
  • Increase your food prices early; upgrading Tuna to L1 earns an extra $4, Noodles and Bok Choy to L1 earn an extra $3.
  • Around Level 16, begin upgrading Interior items that increase Tip amount and Food items to L3 that increase prices the most.
  • Sometime around Level 27, an Automatic Tuna Cooker becomes available for 30 gems.  We were regularly buring Tuna by Level 29, so the Automatic Tuna Cooker was very helpful.  It won't automatically slice the Tuna, so it's important to remember to remove the Tuna quickly from the cooker and set aside to slice.
  • Only Tuna can be placed in the Food Warmers
  • Are you a top chef?  Are you ready to take your cooking to the next level?  Then Hell's Kitchen is waiting for you!
  • Prepare Pan-Seared Tuna, Ginger Caramelized Carrots, Raspberry Cremeux Tarts, Peach Iced Tea and other exquisite dishes.
  • Take this restaurant to the next level, and show your skills as a head chef!
