Three Tips for a Highly Efficient Island Layout in Restaurant City

Three Tips for a Highly Efficient Island Layout in Restaurant City

The goal of Restaurant City is to have as effective and efficient of a layout as possible 

So that you can build your restaurant in a way that allows you to get more customers in, serve faster, and never lose anything in the process. That’s a tall order and one that millions have trouble with seemingly every day. After all, there are endless combinations of stoves and chefs, waiters, and tables to serve and if they don’t all work in tandem perfectly, you’ll be hard pressed to build the ideal restaurant you’re aiming for.

What Are Islands?

The first thing you need to learn about is the island layout – a special layout that all the Restaurant City gurus are using right now to get as many customers into their space as possible without lowering the quality of service. The goal of this layout is to keep all of your moving parts together. Rather than putting stoves and chefs in a corner somewhere and ignoring them, you will put them directly next to the tables where the waiters can then grab the food and then turn around and serve it. Think of your layout as a donut with the waiters in the middle and the chefs at the edges, spread out at intervals of about three tables.

This works well because waiters can reach every table in the island with a maximum of 2 moves in any direction. The chefs are right there for quick access and customers end up waiting far less time than if they were sitting on the other side of the restaurant.

It also leaves a ton of room in your restaurant for things like toilets, arcades, and a maze by your front door to direct traffic inward. If you have a kitchen and a serving area, all split up as it is when you first start playing the game, you’re going to be very hard pressed to maintain a good handle of the customer service rate you need to do well.

Mastering the Island Layout 

When you first get started, your island layout will be singular. All of your tables will go into one island with all of your chefs and waiters. This is the easiest way to do it because you can share waiters between the chefs and keep service moving. But, some people have been known to go out on a limb and start working with far more tables spread out across the entire restaurant – with two or even three islands.

This is a riskier proposition and one that may end up hurting you if it isn’t done properly. If you are considering having multiple islands, keep a few things in mind. First off, you need to have one chef for every 3 tables. Second, you should have a maximum of 5 chefs on the floor at any time. You can get away with 2 waiters for 5 chefs, or you can add a third waiter if you plan on staying logged in to clean your own toilets.

Whatever you do though, make sure to strike a good balance between the customers and your staff. Otherwise, you’ll quickly find it very hard to maintain your level of service given the lack of organization in your restaurant.

Restaurant City How To Get Level 10 Dishes

Restaurant City How To Get Level 10 Dishes

How to Get Level 10 Dishes on Your Menu Quickly

 The key to success in Restaurant City is to develop and serve Level 10 Dishes – the highest level you can push your courses to. This does multiple things. First off, it makes it so you get almost three times as many experience points and popularity points from them for every customer you serve. More importantly, you get far more coins and your customers are easier to please, giving you more leeway in how you create and market your restaurant. This can result in a whole heck of a lot better service and a quicker route to the top for you, the restaurant’s owner.

How Hard Is It?

The big question then is how hard it is to reach level 10 with all those dishes. To put it in a bit of perspective, you will need around 2100 different ingredients to reach level 10 with every dish in the game. That’s not necessary though, because you obviously cannot serve every dish in the game at the same time. In fact, if you have Level 10 dishes, you only need to have one dish for each course and your customers will all be very happy.

That simplifies matters quite a bit, because getting the ingredients you’d need to level up all 58+ dishes to Level 10 would take months to complete unless you had hundreds of friends to choose from. So, you need to spend a great deal more time going about, finding the perfect menu items and getting just those to level 10, because as soon as you have one starter, one main course item, and one dessert to level 10, you’ll be well on your way.

How to Get All Those Ingredients

Getting even just 30+ ingredients you need to reach Level 10 with all three dishes is going to be tough though. Unless you plan on buying them all with Playfish Cash, you’re going to need to spend a lot of time trading and tracking down the specific ingredients you need to reach level 10 with just three dishes.

Along with that, there are some dishes that are much harder to get all those ingredients for. In terms of daily ingredients and quiz rewards, you get a good mixture of everything, so the dishes that use ingredients like Pomegranate or Oregano (which only appear in one dish each) are a lot easier to reach level 10 than others. Dishes that use cheese, cream, or sugar on the other hand are very tough because there are so many different dishes that need those ingredients. It becomes a simple matter of supply and demand.

Maxing Out Your Potential

The key to a good game of Restaurant City is to have the wherewithal to max out your dishes and then set up a good layout that will allow you to sell those dishes to anyone that comes in as fast as possible. If you can get a lot of neighbors, sell those dishes and build a good layout, you’ll be able to blow by your opponents quicker than you ever thought possible.
