Take one of these Android cooking games to relax while cooking in real life!
Updated on August 10, 2021 - added new titles to the list
I really enjoy cooking, and so I enjoy cooking games for Android as well! Games that involve food - something we all can relate to - and the ones that allow you to explore new dishes or create something, or even just manage a place where you cook food - I love them all.
I’ve played so many different types of cooking games for Android - from Diner Dash style simulations to rhythm-based games to others that are just about taking pictures of food - this list has it all. If you like food and have always wanted to play with your food, there is a chance to do so through these games!
Whether you want to play management games full of food or just want to see some different dishes in various games, I am sure that you will enjoy at least a few Android cooking games on this list. And, there aren’t any famous chef match-3 games here, either.
Original list by Jupiter Hadley, updated by Pocket Gamer Staff.
We are going to start this list off with one of the more classic cooking games for Android, Cooking Craze. In this game, you are using the countertop space in front of you to prep, cook and create a variety of dishes for the customers that walk into your shop.
There are lots of different types of food in this game from a number of countries, as well as tons of upgrades to purchase and events to take part in. Cooking games such as this one are very popular on mobile, but Cooking Craze in particular has to be one of the best!
Good Pizza, Great Pizza has you managing a cute-looking pizzeria, and your goal is to become the best in town. You have a rival you are fighting against (who sometimes comes to order your pizza - it’s wild!) as well as tons of customers who often talk in code... and the best part? You will need to try and guess what pizza they are actually ordering.
You can take the pizzas, paint sauce and cheese over them, slice them up, bake them - it’s a fun game! Especially if you're a pizza lover.
Hungry Hearts Diner is a game fairly similar to Diner Dash, where various people will sit down at your restaurant, and you will have to serve them the food they order. It’s a semi-idle game where you need to set items up to cook and come back when they are done, ready to serve them out, however, where Hungry Hearts Diner shines is in the story.
The game is especially lovely thanks to the main character, an adorable granny. If you love cooking games, then chances are you will love Hungry Hearts Diner as much as we did!
If you are looking for some multiplayer cooking games on Android, Too Many Cooks is the best out there. Though there is a single-player mode, Too Many Cooks also allows you to play with other people and is quite fun to play in the same room.
Everyone has a limited counter space in front of them, and they must pass ingredients around, prep, and create dishes for customers as fast as possible! There are icons in the game that allow you to ask for items from people who aren’t in the same room as you. It’s just a fun and chaotic game, that reminds us of some of our favourite multiplayer games such as Overcooked! and Diner Bros.
If you thought that cooking couldn’t also be a rhythm-based game, you’ve not heard of Cook to the Beat. This game is very simple but super fun! You will be cooking up different dishes by prepping various ingredients that are moving in front of you, by hitting the right side of the screen with the correct timing.
As a game, we love the graphics quite a lot. As for the gameplay, it fits in perfectly with the atmosphere. It's a game that becoming more challenging over time, and if you think you're up for the challenge, give it a try!
This is another one of those cooking games on Android with a deeper story and meaning. You are a bear who is currently making up a bunch of different meals, but it's so much more than that. These meals are actually the last ones the people who have passed away are going to have.
They are each person’s favourite dishes, the ones that bring back their happiest memories before they move on. You are playing as the assistant, Cat, who finds the customer's wanted dish by exploring their memories. It's a brilliantly done pixelated game that is so much more than meets the eye.
Cooking Mama is well known when it comes to Android cooking games! She is fiery, but quick to compliment and will walk you through all sorts of home cooking steps. You can, with her help, learn how to perfectly sauté onions, mix meat around, chop various veggies and plate your finished food for her to try and try.
Aside from the coolinary aspect of the game, you can also grow your own crops, open your very own restaurant, and even fish! It's a terrific game that delivers from every single point of view.
Cooking Simulator Mobile is a 3D game where a chef will walk you through a bunch of recipes, allowing you to swipe to chop, cook items on the stove, gather ingredients, and design your own kitchen. You'll be taking on customer orders and send plates out, patiently waiting for (hopefully) positive feedback on your cooking.
This game looks the most realistic on the list, providing a pretty genuine kitchen that I feel you could find in any restaurant, but not in many games. We recommend you give it a try if you want the closest thing to the real deal.
If you are a fan of SpongeBob, then there is a cooking game specifically for you. Much like Cooking Craze, this game puts you at a window with tons of counter space, in order to cook, you guessed it, pancakes. Though you can eventually get to the point where you can cook Krabby Patties, which makes more sense in a SpongeBob game, there will be plenty of upgrades between then and now.
It’s a colourful game that takes a lot of characters from the TV show and brings them to your mobile device. It's also extremely well-made from a gameplay perspective, with increasingly more challenging stages. We stand by it, and you should give it a try too, especially if you love the show.
Maybe you’d rather go for an adorable cooking sim where you play as an adorable Shiba Inu pupper and get to expand your own food truck. Food Truck Pup is basically a cooking game meets business management simulator. You will have to collect ingredients in order to cook the recipes, promote your business, hire people to help you out and - of course - cook.
It's one of the cutest cooking games on Android you can get your hands on today, and it's completely free to play. If you are an avid fan of cuisine simulation games and haven't tried this one out just yet, make sure you do so ASAP!
