Idle Diner is a cooking game for Android with an Idle system. Read on for Idle Diner guide, tips, cheats & strategies to make more money
Idle Diner – Fun Cooking Game – the developers of the game have been advertising this game for a while now – so we decided to give it a shot. In the advertisement, you see the game claims to give you real money(Google Play Gift Card/Paypal Gift Card). Well, as per our experience, this seems to be a clickbait. It does show you the Paypal balance but would not credit you until you reach the USD 100 mark. And, that’s not gonna happen. Why? Because you get stuck at 96 and would not get more. We have no idea whether this is a glitch or a bad practice from the developers. But it’s not true as no one will give you this much amount by playing an idle game. So keep this feature aside, speaking of the reset of the content in the game, it’s pretty good. If you have just started playing it, then you are on the right page. This Idle Diner guide covers the basics of the game. Also, we have shared a bunch of Idle Diner tips, cheats & strategies that you may like. So without further ado, let’s head to the main content.
Idle Diner Game Guide, Tips & Cheats: –
In Idle Diner – Fun Cooking Game, you will start the journey from American Fast Food Location. There are many locations where you can open the restaurant, discover new recipes, ingredients, and make money. In each restaurant, at each cooking floor, you can discover a unqiue recipe. First, you cook the recipe, then tap the waitress to pick it from the kitchen floor and give it to the delivery boy. The delivery boy delivers the food items to the people and you make money. Let’s learn everything in detail and explore all the Idle Diner tips & tricks!
Hire The Cook/Chefs And Manager
Cook/Chefs – In each kitchen in the restaurant, the game lets you assign a chef that you cook the food recipes for you. Tap the chef slot -> hire a chef. By default, you need to tap the food counter to cook the item. After assigning the chef, this job will be on auto-mode.
Managers – You can assign two managers; one at the waitress point and another one at the delivery point. After that, the waitress and delivery boy will do the job automatically. Without managers, you need to tap them.

Make Use Of Time Lapse Cheat
In this cheat, all you need to do is change the mobile’s time setting from the current time to forward time; like x2 hours or something. Open the game and it will give you the skipped hours earnings. Although, if you set the time back, then the game will also go in the past and you would not be able to use the chef’s skills. So make sure that the chef’s or managers’ skills are not in the cooldown stage.
