Restaurant City Tips and Tricks


We all love food. We appreciate food and we crave for food.

Before, I want to have my own restaurant. However, I don’t have the resources to pursue  that dream but thanks to Restaurant City, I can at least pretend that I can.  Restaurant City is a new game on facebook developed by Playfish.

In Restaurant City, you get to create and run your very own restaurant! Design it, decorate it, hire your friends to work in it, and collect new ingredients and menu items!

I’ve been playing Restaurant City for a week now and I’m loving it.

So now, let me share some few tips and pointers for Restaurant City.

How do you get ingredients?

  • Daily Freebie
    This is automatic and will greet you as soon as you log on each day.
  • Daily Quiz
    Each day, you receive a quiz question in your inbox. If you answer the food quiz correctly, you get a free ingredient.
  • Visiting a Friend’s restaurant for the first time (Get clicking!)

How can I gain GP (Gourmet points) faster?
Simple. Keep your browser on! Just leave your restaurant city on, even if you’re not playing. This way, you’ll be sure to gain those extra points which you cannot get while you’re offline. This is also useful if you want to gain level faster.

Keep your employees happy!
Feed them or let them rest. If only they have natural appetite suppressant, so it can suppress their appetite, burn fat and increase their energy output.   Remember: Higher happiness = More productivity.

Ways to gain more coins
Get quick coins by picking up trash and shaking trees.   While you’re in restaurant view, scroll around your lot. Click all the trees you see because they sometimes drop coins. You aren’t guaranteed a coin every time you do it but it is still an easy way to gain some coins.

Focus on one recipe
Restrain yourself from leveling up lots of recipes art once.  Your restaurant can only serve one dish from each category (appetizer, main course & dessert) at a time.   So, choose one recipe, click to make sure it’s the recipe being served, and level that up.  The higher the level, the more reputation you gain per customer. Make use of the trading feature in Restaurant city!

Meal level to thumbs up conversion
Level 1 = +1.0
Level 2 = +1.2
Level 3 = +1.4
Level 4 = +1.6
Level 5 = +1.8
Level 6 = +2.0
Level 7 = +2.2
Level 8 = +2.4
Level 9 = +2.6
Level10 = +2.8

Make your layout more efficient
As much as possible, avoid too much space between the waiters and the tables.   Fix your table layout so that your waiter doesn’t have to walk far to serve your tables.

For the table ratio, I go for 3:1. It means 3 tables per 1 cook. Then 1-2 waiters per 3 cooks.

Prioritize more cooks over waiters.

Play in lower quality
There’s a button on the top left corner of the game which allows you to adjust the game quality. Changing your quality to low makes the game run much faster, hence each customer visit goes faster = more cash.

Create waiting chairs
Waiting chair is a feature which allows you to increase the time in which a customer waits before leaving. This is useful as every customer who leaves disgruntled results in a decrease of your restaurant’s reputation. To make waiting chairs, read the following tips for higher success rate.

  • Don’t place the waiting chairs next to the door
  • Don’t place too many chairs.
  • Place one or two arcade machines to keep your customers entertained for a bit longer.

Make a maze
If your waiters are struggling to clear the dishes in time for new customers then make a maze. This increases the time the customer takes to reach the table and the table should have already been cleared by the time the customer reaches it.

Close your Restaurant
If you can’t login for a long time, you may close your restaurant by blocking the door with something like a chair, table or your mailbox. Or you can just remove the door itself.

Warning: Restaurant City is very addicting. LOL …

    In trading, it also helps if you take a look at the entrees of the person ur gonna trade with. As much as possible trade an ingredient that they also need.

    hi peepz! i play rc too. Ei i think ur missing something too. I’m only level 5 but already reached 30 popularity. So i see that ur already in lvel 14 but only have 42.6 popularity. Peepz madali lang mag level up ng popularity as long as u prevent people from complaining. Visit my site for tips. add nyo din ako sa RC nyo. [email protected] type in RC as message

  20. kc says:

    Don’t use the cheat engine if you want to learn how to run business and budget. You’ll learn to think why, how, what’s wrong…. otherwise you won’t enjoy playing if you cheat.

  21. Trina says:

    shake the trees sa lot mo pag nasa loob ka ng restaurant mo, then go back sa street mode tapos pasok ka ulit sa restaurant mo then shake the trees again.. it’ll give a coin each time you do it..

    SAVING GAME – Get the maxinmum out of your game. 1) give 100% to all your employees 2) Put to rest all your employees by clicking on each employee and clicking on the REST (bed button) this will reenergize your employees while they sleep 3) On the Upper-left of your screen you will see a computer disc, click on it and save it , When you sign back on your employees will be well rested and you will have 2000+ coins in your account.
    Minimum time 1 Hour 30 mins. NOTICE: this game tip doesn’t always work.

  52. Bill says:

    FASTER CLEAN & FIX – Instead of hiring the janitor to clean all you have to do is click with your mouse to clean toilets, fix arcade machines, clear tables. It does not work on Neighbors Restaurants – Per RC Friend

  53. Bill says:

    FREE ENERGY FOR NEIGHBOR’S EMPLOYEE – Click on the Orange Lunchbox on screen

    and you can give your neighbor’s free energy to your neighbors every day (Limit is 20 friends per day) Free Energy ranges:
