Indian Restaurant Strategy Overview

In the Indian Restaurant, you serve Uttapams (pancake), Masala Chai (spiced tea) along with Sumbar (spicy lentil soup) to hungry and impatient customers.   Like the Bakery, the Indian restaurant becomes increasingly challenging because of the different topping variations for Uttapams.   In order to be ready for all the possible options that will be ordered, upgrading your Kitchen Tabletop and Stove is a necessity.

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.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips

  • Continually click on your Pressure Cooker throughout the level so that it is always refilling the Sambar.  Keep it fully stocked at all times and click on it even when its already full.  It doesn't refill itself automatically like the Teapot.
  • You will need approximately 22000 coins in order to do all Level 1 Kitchen and Interior non-gem upgrades
  • You will need to upgrade the Teapot, Stove and Tabletop before starting Level 1.
  • It is difficult to spot an order of Peas Uttapam with Chillis.  If a customer refuses a Peas Uttapam, he probably also wanted Chillis on it.
  • Beginning with Level 20, it will be easier to pass with 3 stars if you begin serving Kulfi.  Without Kulfi, you will need to make significant Interior Upgrades in order to pass with 3 stars.
  • Most Kitchen food upgrades only increase the price by $1, so multiple upgrades will be necessary
