I enjoy cooking games - they give me the idea that I'm an amazing cook (which I'm not). Generally with these games there's not a lot of variety - there are the same types of motions throughout the game, and they can tend to get pretty repetitive. While these things are also pretty true of this game, I found that it wasn't a hindrance to my enjoyment of it. There are many different dishes, a few different styles of food, different restaurants. I particularly enjoyed the restaurant patrons - they added some variety to the preparation of certain dishes, and their comments were quite funny.
The final level ("restaurant", "task", whatever) of the game was surprisingly clever, and I genuinely laughed - cheers to the writers!
All-in-all, I was entertained/amused, and that's what I need in a game.
